Dave got there right before the hurricane did. It was my 3rd show in 4 nights it was a awesome experience.

Good show, awesome jam and skat during Jimi Thing, good setlist, wished for ring of fire or LBV but what can you do, lame and rushed encore due to the hurricane i believe.

Great Show Cut Short By Hurricane

User: beachbarbgrrl
Review:
quite possibly the best Dave show i have been to as of yet. the set list kicked ass and their was a scat jam that Dave did that was incredible. i would definatly recomend listening to it!

Loved the mix of songs at this show, but the crowd really got on my nerves. I'm probably just getting old (at 23, haha), but the Raleigh show was just so much rowdier than Charlotte -- seemed like a bunch of drunk college kids who cared more about drinking than they did about the music. Very noticeable difference from one night to the next, IMHO. Charlotte crowd seemed more into the music. So unfortunately the crowd in Raleigh really did detract from my enjoyment of the show...although Dave's scatting certainly perked me up. :)

It was my first dave show and they kicked ass.He played a couple teases of jtr cuz some dude was waving a sign. But the crowd was awesome and the band was even better.

The greatest Dave concert I have been to! All he did was play the classics it was so great!

User: crjecu41
Review:
This was my 3rd Dave show and this one was the best. It was kind of short or felt short, but hearing alot of his old songs really made up for it. The whole band seemed really into, especially dave who at one point at the end of Jimi Thing started to "free style"! It was awsome. Another thing that made this show special is that i got to hear some songs that i never seen live in person before. Overall great show, hope there will be many more that i will go to even though i heard some rumor that Dave is leaving the band.

loved it, suprise to that... first dave show ever, and will always remember it...

My first show! Loved it but when I read the reviews from Charlotte I think that it was the better one. My only complaint was the traffic going into the pavillion took me 1-1/2 Hrs to go one mile into the parking lot, didn't get to see the first 1/2 of the show.

This show was good. Charlotte was definitely the better of the shows. The band sounded good in Raleigh but the crowd was awful. It was so dishearting to see rows and rows of people in front of me sitting down during "Help Myself" and "The Stone". This show was full of the "I'm in college so therefore I will like DMB and I only know the songs on the radio." Some people just don't get it. :(

Review:
ahhh my first show. what memories. cant really remember that much really. not because i was hammered though. i was in the lawn with all of the drunk high school kids that were acting like a bunch of retards. hard to see and hear with all that riff raff surrounding you. i have since wisened up and have been getting seats (so worth the extra money) where the people who want to see a show and not party are. anyways the show was awesome what i remember. kind of funny, the first song played at my first show was the first song i ever heard from dmb back when it came out on the radio.

Awesome show, Jimi Thing and Rapunzel were amazing. A+

My first DMB live show. Awesome. Seeing the band live is a level beyond just watching the live CD's. The band was amazingly tight. Great setlist.

User: H2D24DMB
Review:
Great show - especially from Carter, Dave & Boyd. I didn't see the rowdy crowd as detracting, and it seemed the band responded as well. Exceptional Jimi Thing (with scat as previously noted), Grace, Stone & DDTW. If it was hurricaine shortened (which I *didn't sence), we certainly weren't cheated in any way.

The show was awesome, next time i hope to get closer seats but it was great.

WOW, tons of energy, one of the best concerts ive been to, jimi thing was amazing, and so was nancies. It just felt like everyone including the band was having a blast!!!!

Felt like it got cut short because of the impending storm, and Stay in the encore never helps. Not as good as the 2002 show here, but still quite enjoyable.

Jimi Thing was one of the best moments in the history of music. Period.

#3 .... and I was really hoping for JTR!

User: mglow333
Review:
Dave started out well, then slowed it down a bit, but the last half of the show was amazing. Crowd was definitely feeling it, and the band seemed to kick it up at the end. Overall, a very pleasing evening. Oh and one more thing: JIMI THING ROCKED THE HOUSE!!!!

Wow, the concert seemed short, but the freestyle skat was awesome....

User: NbrFortyOne
Review:
An amazing show. The band was really on tonight with lots of energy. The highlight for me was Dave scatting at the end of Jimi Thing. It's funny to watch him move his arms and hands in what appears to be involuntary motions while he scats. The rest of the setlist speaks for itself. I was really hoping for What You Are instead of Stay.

User: NCSUME02
Review:
Great Show...a little dissappointing setlist, but they rocked out the songs they did play. Awesome "Dave chatter" on Jimi Thing...he really got into it

User: nolosses4
Review:
Best show I've ever been to! The scat jam during Jimi Thing was amazing. Crush was also a nice way to start off the evening. SMTS-> ASTB-> PNP-> Rapunzel was beyond words. Can't wait till next year.

User: obxsurfer85
Review:
Great show....set list was sick...dave pulled off some crazy scat during jimi thing, great versions of rhyme and reason and crush. hurricane isabel was about an hour away by the end of the show so they kind of cut the encore short but stil a great damn show...high as hell

Awesome show. Best show of his that I have been. Was the fist time I heard Ants Marching live and in person. It was great. Butch didn't mess up this time. HAHA!.

User: sam&chris

It was rainging but it was a great show as always.. i didnt hear the JTR teases or else id have gone crazy.. but im sure it was there

User: scookson

I freaking loved it. Awesome energy, incredible play list, and refreshing validation after Nissan's disappointment.

User: ScreamingSquash

Can't believe he played The Stone. That's the first time i've ever heard it live. Went to the show with Jesse.

dave was awesome, i live in charlotte so i rarely see him get so into it

User: seattledmb
Review:
After Charlotte I was afraid this one would not meet my expectations- but it did- these 2 past shows have made the best 2 show pair this series!

Show was a little disapointing. Definately dug Jimi Thing....thought the JTR tease was tight, too. Charlotte won the best show for NC. Raleigh normally has better shows. It was still lots of fun!!

Great show with some suprising songs. Can't wait till next year. I couldn't believe the energy Dave had...I think he rewards those that come out to see him during the week?!

This was the best full band show that I have seen. Dave was definately breaking it down during the jams, and the setlist was awsome. Definately download when it comes available.

amazing

User: UNCWChris
Review:
Not bad...I had a blast ofcourse, but thats mainly because of the pavillion, that place rocks. Awesome outdoor arena, perfect weather. Wish I coulda heard sum other songs but thats the same with every show. All and all I definitely got my moneys worth.

My 3rd DMB show and it was great. I had to sell my other ticket to a scalper at the last min, lost 20 bucks. A lady bought it, we danced the whole night. She had to use my cell ( hers died )during Dancin Nancies to call her sister so she could listen. We went our seperate ways after the concert. She called her sister to get my cell off the caller ID so she could call me back to tell me how a great time she had. We are seeing each other now it's been great. ( a month later) ....Thanks DMB

This was most likely, so far, the best show I have seen of DMB in Raleigh. I was in Section 1, second row, on the end of the row closest to the stage. I was within a few feet of touching Dave. I was soo excited that I got to see my favorite band that close up. They played all of my favorite songs, incl. my #1 favorite...Ants Marching, I love that song!!! It was a night I truely will never forget.

User: Wrhse into Ants

Great set... rushed the show due to the hurricane comin in. It was nice having the night before start with Ants and this night encoring with an incredible Ants and Stay. Well done.
