My first Dave Matthews Band show!! It COMPLETELY changed my perspective on the band. I never really listened to them, and regret not doing so, because this is the greatest band in the world! I now own all albums, dvd's, etc., and I hope that they keep pumping out the jams for many years to come!

This was a great show. Very old school, i liked it alot. First time hearing a bunch of these songs. Two Step was great and I loved the jam in the middle of Typical Situation.

awesome show. i had great seats and have some incredible close up pics for anyone who might be interested. alot of older Dave in the set list but also a few of the newer songs for people who like the "radio Dave"

I took a DMB "beginner" to this show, and I hoped that the setlist would be something he could enjoy...and I was not disappointed. Mostly old stuff, which was great b/c my friend had listened to the first few DMB albums back in the day. Felt like my first DMB show ('97) all over again, except this time no #41-->Say Goodbye. If he had played Say Goodbye, would've been perfect. Tons of energy from the band and the crowd; I danced my butt off. Watchtower was AWESOME, and I was so excited to hear BOWA. And my friend is definitely convinced of DMB's greatness after seeing this show.

I have been to many DMB shows and I have to say that this was the best Ihave every seen them. They played with such intensity. It was awesome! The crowd was awesome as well. Absolutely THE BESY SHOW EVER!!

User: DMB1541
Review:
What an awesome show. The set was insane. I Did It was the only song played that was written after 1995. That is nuts. Ants opening was a complete surprise, Warehouse was jammed out, and the BOWA, holy crap. SMTS-->WWYS was excellent followed by Two Step, and it was crazy. Watchtower was the most intense I've ever seen. The Band was awesome tonight. They were full of energy, and Dave was dancing all over the place every song. My favorite show out of 4. Can't wait for Atlanta on Saturday.

For some weird reason i think that dave loves charlotte. The past three years the band seems alot more into the chrlotte shows and the setlists have been amazing (especially 2002). This is probably my favorite out of the 6 i've been to. watchtower was one of the best i've seen in years and billies was off the chart. raleigh's got some big shoes to fill.

THIS SHOW WAS Freakin Amazing that's all I'm saying I just got a copy of my show finally and when I first started to hear I felt a knot in my stomach all over again because I was reliving my show all over again it was such and old school tour all expect for I Did It. But I had alot of fun at my show though. My friend from back home(NY)calls me during Recently and Along the Watchtower he's like let me hear this he was blown away, he's like your show kicked some butt, and it sure did, more to come this year '04 with all my friends.

Typical, Cry Freedom, Bowa, like going in a time machine to 1996, awesome experience.

I loved this show with all my heart. This show had so much energy and All along the Watchtower and two step were amazing songs. I will never forget 9/16. The boys had a wonderful time. I wish my sweetheart were there with me.

User: HeckYaDangIt
Review:
Wow, my 1st DMB show, even though I've been a fan for a long time. Watchtower was the best thing I've ever experienced. It was simply amazing. So much energy, it was just retarded. The set was a dream, all old school accept for I did it.

Awesome! I've been to two Dave shows. This was by far the better of the two.

User: jeffrey
Review:
Awesome show, great set, the band was into it, especially Dave who was already doing his crazy chicken dance on the fist song. It reminded me of the days of the pajama pants. Those were some of the greates versions of the songs I've ever heard SMTS-->ASTB-->WWYS!!! And especially Two Step, that was beyond description. DOWLOAD IT!

User: jeffro898
Review:
Excellent Show, the absolute best I've heard yet. And I finally got to see One Sweet World live! Pure Rapture!

User: JimiThing10
Review:
All I can say is what a show. All of Dave. Only one song from Everyday, none from Busted Stuff. Ants, Two Step, Watchtower, Tripping Billies??? WOW. Unbelievable setlist.

Review:
oh my god!! this was my 8th show, dating back to around 97...by far, BY FAR, the best show i've seen. i definitely prefer the old stuff, and this was perfect. he even played "i did it", so i had a bathroom break. turns out that's not a crowd favorite...there were a million people in line for the john during that song. long live dave!

3rd show,keeps getting better

User: Kovacsjj
Review:
Oh my God! I was would have been satisfied to hear just the first half of this show... Ants, Satellite, Warehouse, BOWA opening was phenomenal. SMTS->ASTB->WWYS was awesome too... Stefan rocked out on ASTB and then again on the Watchtower intro. Recently was a suprise, and it is so sweet with the Pretty Girl outro. Crash is a standard, but is soooooo awesome live. Possibly the best Watchtower I've heard in a few years, plus the crowd was so into it... simply awesome! Typical with the extended jam, and then what was left to end this show with besides Billies where Boyd showed up strong for the first time in the show, and really ripped it up! All in all, everyone was dead on tonight, and I can't wait for tomorrow in Raleigh... see y'all there!

The Streets weren't Crowded, nothing got Busted, and this day was different than Every other Day, except for one little joke; I wonder who "Did It"? Kick ass.

Review:
This was the first show i got to see one of my favorites that i dont believe gets enough recognition... Cry Freedom... what a song. It was a good show... it just bothered me the amount of fan favorites (not deep Dave fans, like you) he played... I did it, crash (yes, of course i love it.. but...) ants, sattelite... etc

This show was freakin awesome. Just a crazy setlist and great stuff.

User: mglow333
Review:
Awesome show. Setlist, while overwhelmingly early DMB, was damn near flawless and the band was definitely on their "A" game tonight. Crowd was great as well. Warehouse, SMTS->ASTB->WWYS, and Watchtower were my favorites. Hope tomorrow night in Raleigh is just as good!

It was my second Dave concert and my first real outdoor concert. I saw Ludacris outside but I wouldn't consider that a real one. The lighting and camera effects were IN-FREAKIN'-CREDIBLE!! My top two favorite songs that night were Two Step and Tripping Billies, though they aren't necessarily my favorite two. The whole road trip up there with three of my friends really added to the show. I had a blast, and I'm sure they did too!

This show was great, a lot of older songs made it better than the last two shows in charlotte.

User: NbrFortyOne
Review:
An awesome show. The highlights for me included the intro to One Sweet World where Dave just stood back and wrapped his arms around his guitar and listened while Butch and Roi played back and forth. Unfortunately, there was no scatting by Dave during Anyone Seen the Bridge, but he sure did dance a lot during the show, which is always fun to watch. Recently included Pretty Girl outro and Crash Into Me was a nice surprise. After what seemed to be a very long show, I was afraid we might only get one Encore song. Typical Situation and Tripping Billies was a perfect end to a great show!

The show was Great!!! Awesome Setlist. Sat on the lawn and thought it was just as good from where people were in the seats. Best DMB show ive been to. Cant wait for Atlanta!

Probably my favorite attended show, next to 7.2.08. The opening song list was incredible, tying into a lot of songs from Under the Table, but then I Did It? Who does that? I was a bit turned off with that but So Much to Say -> Anyone Seen the Bridge -> What Would You Say and Recently kept my groove going during this show. So wish I had a copy of this show!

User: OpenWide41

One of the best shows EVER! Flawless performance. This was my 2nd DMB show and I was floored, I hope one day this is a live release because it was incredible. BOWA, wild Two Step, Watchtower with 'FIRE!!'. AMAZING

User: pcpayne
Review:
helluva show! pretty girl outro to recently, dixie chicken outro to crash, astb, billies, ants, watchtower, satellite ( i know ) and nothing off of everyday but i did it. i couldn't ask for a better setlist.

My first concert or should I say the first ever concert I could afford:) Thank God Dave doesnt love to put the fees on his concerts. I think that's awesome. Before the show started, I had a gut feeling he would start with Antz. That made the entire concert right there along with his other sweet song Crash, it drove the ladies wild. Dave, I love you and your band. Never quit. You're still too young.

This was the greatest set I have ever witnessed. Minus I Did It, everything came from Before These Crowded Streets or earlier. The setlist just blew me away with classic Dave after classic Dave song. The fans made it even better, getting into it and appreciating every song.

Very VERY powerful show...it was like Red Rocks, 8 years later.
