Well as always DMB put on a great show! Stay to open was cool as was Dancing Nancies! The only down fall to the show was the Stupid Eagels fans chanting EAGELS EAGELS EAGELS all show. Other then that it was a Solid set. oh and the Eagels lost HA HA!!!

Wow, after lastnight, it was going to be tough to get it better. And boy did they ever beat last night. Went with Barbs, Heintz, and his boy. met up with Kristen, 2 k, Gofus and Amanda. Was pretty on for this one b/c I had to drive home after. Well to the show, 14th row, on Boyd's side. Help Myself was pretty good, I always liked Fool to think even thought it is from everyday. That was the first time I heard Spoon live, and they fucking rocked that song out, didn't know they did like that on spoon. the maker was once again sweet, and Ants to end it was a prefect ending to a good tour for me. But what mad the night a perfect one was without a doubt NANCIES!!!!! When I heard the opening rift, I almost jumped out of my skin, i couldn't believe it, I waited 22 shows and finally got it!!!! And they fucking played it better then I ever thought. OH my GOD, that was all I needed. That shit was nuts!!!! Went to the lot afterwards and got it in like huffin was going out of style, had a great time and then drove home.....see yall in the winter.....

My first dave show, was so pumped for the show and hearing the stone and crush at the time blew me away. Did not know that many of the songs at the time and didnt feel like there was that much energy IMO.

WHAT A RIDICULOUS SETLIST....I CANT BELIEVE WHAT HE BUSTED OUT TONIGHT....NOT ONLY ARE THE LAST 5 SONGS RIDICULOUSLY RARE/EXCELLENT...HE PLAYED STONE AND OTHER GOOD SONGS EARLY....MAKER AND SPOON MADE MY NIGHT....THIS SHOW WILL FOREVER BE HARD TO TOP. SO MUCH ENERGY IN THE PLACE, IT WAS EASY TO TELL IT WAS HARD FOR THE GUYS TO STOP.

User: Davecrazy
Review:
Very good set! Would not have guessed Stay as the opener but it worked. All around a great set...Help myself, nancies and spoon were very key songs for the night! good closer and encore!

Awesome Show! Nice concentration from BTCS

User: DirtMagirt_9
Review:
What a nuts show, can you believe four songs from BTCS as an opener. Stay just let me know this night would be magical. A slight lull with If.. and Help myself, BUT BARTENDER!! my first live Bartender! I liked dave's screaming. He was so full of energy and ready to throw it back at the crowd. then came MY FIRST LIVE NANCIES! really kicked! boyd was tearing it up, which brings me to say that more attention was put on boyd during this show than at any other I have attended or heard. A stellar Watchtower, and SPOON! I couldnt beleive it. Ants as a closer was classic and boyd tore it up! The maker was a great song to set the mood and ... I called it... Billies! Whoooopeee my first live billies too, once again boyd and dave surround carter and jam out forever! I loved it! Get this show and the night before too!

This was my first show and i loved every minute - Stay was a great opener, and you have to love all the rest of the BTCS stuff i had a great time, can't wait to see them again

User: dlewanda
Review:
The band was very energetic that night. A couple rarities (Help Myself, The Maker). It was a pleasure to see the band enjoy themselves, as they did the night before. It seems like the band has recovered from the downer of the Lillywhite->Everyday->Busted Stuff roll they were on from 2000-2002. I am quite happy with what I've seen.

A lot of Sweet Stuff from BTCS Ants Marching and Watchtower got the crowd going!

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE...BEST SHOW I HAVE EVER BEEN TO!! not many shows would be able to top this one. only one lowlight and that was where are you going. other than that, everything was perfect.

User: DMBgroupi2
Review:
Has anyone noticed that the first four (count 'em, *four*) songs from the setlist were all from from Before These Crowded Streets? ...Stay, Crush, Stone, and Don't Drink the Water. that's just unheard of, people! The entire band had a great night, but Dave's voice in particular was ON, especially for during DDTW and Bartender. The emotion in his voice for those two songs was incredible.. and he was belting out all those high notes! Also, the oldies they played were such a great treat. Satellite and Spoon were so great. DANCING NANCIES!! was a particular fave of mine, so I was thrilled to hear it. The Maker wasn't the best as an encore song, but the energy picked right back up with Tripping Billies... another old-school song I was glad to hear. Boyd rocked out on Tripping Billies and Watchtower. Stefan was great on Crush and Watchtower, and Carter blew up the Stone. ....and i'm spent.

Not exactly the..cleanest town, but hey,,if Dave can go there, so can I. Good set..Nancies made a nice return, and Tripping Billies was sweet...but the damn Eagles chants suuuucked. (and this is coming FROM an Eagles fan!)

Tremendous setlist and a very solid show. The band was in fine form and finished off a 2-night stand in style.

Great, fantastic, awesome. Just a few words to describe the show at the Tweeter Center. A Halloween tease, Stefan jamming Sublime, and an unforgettable Nancies! Truely amazing. A must have for any collector.

All I have to say is holy crap. Stay as an opener, who would have guessed? I didnt. The energy of the band was even better then night one, and the crowd 200 times better then night one. I liked how they started strong and ended strong. One of the best shows i have seen yet.

Went with Christine, her friends Fran and Shannon. Nice late summer day. Nice weather. I drove my Acura Integra.

Got pretty drunk tailgating. We were able to sit on a blanket in the parking lot on the grass prior to the show. This was the first time I went with a different group of friends and a girl. I had fun. I thought the set list was good but not great. The highlights for me included, “The Stone,” “Bartender,” “Fool to Think,” and “Dancing Nancies.” They played some of the slower songs tonight such as “Satellite, “Where are you Going?” and “Spoon.” It was mellower than I wanted it to be. I still enjoyed hearing those songs. The encore seemed a little weak with “The Maker” (even though I do like that song), but another rocking version of “Tripping Billies” ended it on a good note.

Dave really Camden I think. I was real glad to hear Spoon and Bartender. A Crowded Streets heavy show is one I'm bound to like, so this was a good place for me to be at that time.

This show was incredible. A lot of great songs (especially from BTCS) and "The Maker" and "Tripping Billies" were perfect for the encore. It was the first time that I had ever heard "Help Myself", and it was nuts. I screamed so much I pulled a muscle in my side. Incredible show

AMAZING!!!!! THE BEST DMB SHOW I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. I also got the chance to see the tour bus leaving. Carter and Butch gave the crowd a nice hello. I am downloading the show now and will have a hard time keeping it out of my cd player!!!

User: JiMiThiNg34
Review:
Simply amazing...everything about this show was great. from the stay opener to tripping billies the whole show was new to me. all the songs were pretty much songs i havn't heard before live, except for DDTW, IIHIA, satellite, WAYG, ants marching and billies, the rest were all awesum to hear for the first time live...Nancies was fucking amazing, DDTW was surprizingly awesum also, it was almost like WYA, but better intensity. Watchtower was also great. Spoon. what can i say. i almost pissed myself when i heard the opening notes. Ants is always a treat to hear. the maker was awesum too. at first i didnt kno wut it was, but i heard the tone. and tripping billies was crazy, the band had so much energy as well did the crowd. everyones hands were up during this song, it was the best concert i've seen so far, and easily tops last years 3 nights at camden. Oh and at the end while everyone was leaving the tours came out and were beeping so everyone just ran up, it was cool i got a good glimpse of carter and butch and a nice wave from carter. it just made it extra special.

What a beautiful night. The band has never been better. The energy was incredible. Played the first four songs from BTCS. Stay/Stone/Crush/DTTW...Dave was so intense and so passionate. I'm blown away. Crush and Nancies were spectacular. Watchtower was amazing. Some rare gems as well with Spoon and Help myself. It is truly inspiring that these men continually reach for and deliver the best that they have from the inside to all of us.

This was the best Dave Matthews Band performance ever (for me). The rarity of Spoon, the Stay opener, the Bartender Jam, Ants, and Billies made the show fantastic. What made the show unforgetable was the concert-pick of my friend "Fool to Think" which blew the whole crowd away! Thank you Dave for the best memories...

My first show. Highlights - Bartender, Don't Drink the Water This was an awesome show. I went there having no idea what to expect, but high expectations. I wanted to hear the "rare" songs like everyone else. I also told myself before the show that I would be very dissappointed if I didn't hear my favorite tune, which is #41. I learned to never do that again. Because I left that night feeling dissappointed that they didn't play it.

I should have written a review 2 years ago when the show was fresh in my head, but it was an incredible show...looking back at the set list...with BTCS being my fav album, and the amount of songs from that album played that night...along with Dancing, Ants, Watchtower, Tripping...such an incredible show...
