Best Jimi Thing I've ever heard.

Another great show by Dave and the band!

Great show. Dave scat on Jimi was classic for the 2004 tour. Great scene in the parking lot before the show.

Great show. I sat on the lawn for this one. I was hoping to hear Grey Street and #41, but Warehouse and All Along the Watchtower made up for it. Pig was also really great, but what song isn't great when you're Dave Matthews Band?

I'm nineteen years old and this was my 28th concert (not 28 dave concerts...just 28th concert concert) and it was by far the most incredible show I've ever seen.

Review:
Good show, but not spectacular (in my inexpert opinion). Great opener, and fantastic energy for the encore. The crowd kind of zoned out and lost most of the energy at one point, but they rallied and came back. Too Much was great! All Along the Watchtower was awesome, but I was hoping for a two-song encore. At least it cooled off a little and was not sweltering!

I can't not love a DMB show, but i was so excited about this one and i honestly felt a little let down after looking at the shows before and after it, with the setlist and all.

Incredible

It was awesome. I loved the scat that Dave did- Carter's drum solo was sweet, and the new stuff that they played ROCKED! I was really supprised that they played Watchtower and started jamming out and singing "Stop, hey what's that sound"- they normally don't do that in Charlotte. I've gone for 6 years and every time they do something different that rocks.

Great show minus the frog in Dave's throat. I was so excited to hear DDTW open because I've never heard it before. Then they played Pig and I thought I was going to crap my pants. The new songs are awesome. I'm really digging Hello Again and Joyride.

It was great, like any dave concert. However Charlotte really got into this concert, he really brought the house down.

User: bertenstein
Review:
Awesome energy tonight. It's always nice to see Dave mess up one of his own songs (DDTW) because it still sounds good. The new songs rock it out hardcore, much better live than off a download. Watchtower blew everyone away!!!

Liked it and would also like to have a copy.

Great Show, although Dave had the "Frog" it made for some cool vocals and intresting versions without the high vocal parts. Jimi Thing was the highlight!

My first DMB Concert, short but sweet.

One of the best I have seen. It was number 43 for me.

Good show. Little disappointed in the changing of the set list. Still good show.

User: brettbbk
Review:
Dave had a lot of energy and did some sweet skat on OSW and Jimi Thing. Carter went NUTS on Hello Again. All in all, great show, enjoyed the new songs.

DMB rolls in for its 10th stop at the venue at a little over the halfway mark on there famed 2004 summer tour. Tonight's performance roared & buzzed around the track and packed a highly spiritual, time stamping punch on the audience as the performance was high energy compacted with an excellent set list that was too the point. The band put on a two hour performance this evening that stamps what DMB is capable off when running at full throttle, taking you from the highest of highs in an early set PIG, Warehouse, Joy Ride. A breathtaking 14 minutes of euphoria and bliss with Graves, The band then switched to the darker side with spectacular versions of The Stone , Drive in Drive Out, Jimi Thing, Hello Again. Watchtower was all that needed to played as an encore with this flawless effort from the band tonight. Charlotte 04 saw one magical moment after another with a relentless Saturday night bombshell on the Queen City.

great show, my first time sitting front row and i dont think i could have asked for anything more, my buddy and i were lucky enough to get one of the setlists and had they played BOWA, and billies it could have possibly been one of the best shows ive seen, still they seemed like they were on fire on every song, jimi, carter on hello again and watchtower, i was amazed.

Great show all around...energy was good on a beautiful night! The "Lie in our graves" was incredibly well played w/ Carter laying out some of the smoothest playing i've heard our of these guys in a while.

while an avid dave fan i must admit this was not one of the better shows he has ever put on. Still good featuring a couple new songs, but leaving a little to be desired

User: DMBphan83

Great energy, Hello Again, DDTW, Pig overall fun.

Review:
Good setlist, lotsa specials, but I *did* miss Ants, WWYS, Nancies, 2 Step, Crush, Crash, & Stay. No complaints on the quality of jamming and the band's & crowd's energy. Warehouse and Lie In Our Graves were definite highlights.

Great show for my birthday.

Awesome show! Jimi Thing was crazy, the whole band had a lot of energy last night. Watchtower!!!! What can I say, great, great, great!

User: henryizhott
Review:
my first dave show ever. one of the best live performances i've ever seen. Warehouse, pig, Jimi Thing, DDTW, and Watchtower were amazing. can't wait to see him again.

User: iAmTyLeRdUrDeN

My 24th show... I thought it was great... I heard a few rough spots, but the band seemed to be having fun and the crowd (SUPRISINGLY!) turned out to be great!

Damn!! Awesome Jimi Thing and All Along the Watchtower, but it's Dave, what song isn't great??!?!

Sick! Jimi Thing>(Buffalo Springfield) was nasty along with Warehouse, Lie in our Graves, and a kick-ass drum solo in Hello Again.

1000% better than the 2nd show of the tour in Chicago - what a difference a month of working on the new stuff makes! Also just an incredible setlist!

Charlotte is a great venue with so very many great dmb fans! Lots of first time live versions of new songs. Another great show.

User: jmay87
Review:
I enjoyed this show, I had a mic stand obstructing part of my view and the shortened setlist kinda bummed me out, but i had a great time. The highlight of the night was definately Jimi Thing and the DDTW opener was sweet.

This was my Fiance's FIRST CONCERT EVER, AND IT WAS DMB!!! HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!?!?! She had NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER been to a concert, for anyone, and her first happened to be Dave, and, on top of it all, it was the 07/24/2004 show!!!!! THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS I HAVE SEEN FROM DAVE, and I've been to 23 so far.. it'll be 25 total after the next 2 shows in Atlanta and Antioch..

User: jonli
Review:
Amazing show, amazing setlist. Finally got to hear Lie In Our Graves live. Dave's jammin' and scat-singing on Jimi Thing was incredible. Everyone was just incredibly tight. Encore was obviously short, but I can't complain after the performance they gave. I took some great photos and a few videos with audio on my digital camera. Nice clip of LIOG. However, I did get denied an autograph after knocking on their trailer door after the show at the hotel... =(

User: joshcgarvin
Review:
Its getting time for a little setlist variety. I mean really. DMB has so many songs that they have just shelved. I mean its pretty bad when you become predictable. Only real eye opener was PIG. Still a great band but just losing the luster with typical shows.

User: jowens41
Review:
Another great show. The energy levels were high. I thought Lie in Our Graves and Jimi Thing brought the house down. They did several other songs great (Pig, SMTS, etc.) The new stuff sounds great. Great encore too. I just wish they hadn't cut the set short. Loved it!

User: jrgoheels
Review:
Awesome show!! it was my 2nd DMB show, I loved my 1st, but they out did themselves this year!!

User: Just So Fresh
Review:
The energy in Verizon was unbelievable on this night. Highlights would have to be Pig, Warehouse, LIOG, Jimi thing (Buffalo Springfield "stop, HEY! whats that sound" HELL YEAH), HELLO AGAIN!!(OMG, such a promising song with a kickass drum solo and INSANE amounts of energy from the crowd by the end), and finally, DIDO right before The Stone. Can't complain about a one song encore when its as good as Watchtower was. Can't wait for West Palm Beach.. gonna be hard to top Charlotte. Don't Drink the Water Pig One Sweet World Warehouse Crazy-Easy Joy Ride Lie In Our Graves When the World Ends Drive In Drive Out The Stone Hello Again Jimi Thing So Much To Say Sugar Will Too Much

Okay show, Dave could not hit the high notes

User: kmcmillan19
Review:
This was my very first Dave concert and it rocked. I didn't want it to ever end. They play great music, but to really experience the music, you have to see them live.

User: Mattyk2
Review:
Yep, last year was a little better...just flowed a little better. But the new songs ROCKED, especially Joy Ride. And holy cr@p, Watchtower was incredible! I don't care if the encore was only one song, it was freakin' amazing! Another great show, my fifth, I think. Off to Nashville next week...

User: mcvillier
Review:
Great show! It's been a while since I've gotten to see DMB (missed 'em last summer) so I was ready for a good show. I'm really liking the new songs (the long slow, jazzy one is sweet). DDTW a good opener. Pig always great to see live. Too Much and Jimi were amazing. Finally got to see Watchtower (funny how they never play that in Charlotte). Good time, wish I could see 'em more often.

User: mddolfan
Review:
I thought the show was awesome and the crowd energy was great. Highlights for me were Sugar Will and Boyd's solo in LIOG. Show #14 for me.

User: mglow333
Review:
Overall a very good show, not quite as good as last year's, but that's a tough one to top. The band seemed to have a lot of energy, as there were very few slows spots. Highlights for me were Lie In Our Graves (Boyd was ridiculous), Jimi Thing (Dave skat), Hello Again (Carter's solo), Warehouse, and of course Watchtower. And to anyone who was in section 8 or 9, I hope you saw the 40 year old guy dancing his ass off the entire show, because that was hilarious.

The show was pretty good, definately did NOT top last year, but ok i guess. Boyd and others had great jams, and watchtower was a great encore but could has another song to end it.

Oh Wow, so many requests were made this night. First off, PIG! Can't believe I got to see this song live, along with other requests such as Lie In Our Graves and Don't Drink The Water

User: OpenWide41
Review:
Great show, my 3rd straight show in Charlotte and Charlotte never disappoints. VERY energetic show, Pig was awesome(my first time seeing it live) and Jimi Thing was insane(Dave's scat was crazy) and he let us sing "For What It's Worth" at the end. Probably my favorite performance I have seen from DMB.

User: Pippi

AWESOME!!!!

User: rkn2dmb
Review:
Great show. This was my first time seeing dave in charlotte and the one thing i got to say about the fans there is there awsome. best crowd i've ever seen. they didn't play alot of songs but thats ok because they just played the other songs alot longer. First time i've ever heard LIOG and DIDO so that was awsome. And that was the best Jimi Thing i've ever heard. Dave went nuts after his kick ass guitar solo he started just goin off and like was playin an air bass guitar also it was cool to here the batman tune during leroi's solo which by the way just rocked and then dave started singin "Theres somethin happing here...." just like central park and the crowd went nuts he even let the crowd take over when singin "Stop hey whats that sound everybody look whats goin down" it was amazing. And Watchtower is always one of my favorite encores.

User: rkn2dmb41
Review:
AWESOME!! First time seeing DMB in Charlotte and loved it. The fans there are crazy and cool. Hello Again rocked and heard the best Jimi Thing I've ever heard. Watchtower was nuts, Leroi kicked it old school at the end. LIOG was my favorite song I heard all year. Freakin amazin'

good show...crappy seats...dave's voice sounded tired.

This is the best show I have ever seen. I love "Pig" and finally got to here it live. Every single member had their moment of spotlight and tons of jams. It was spectacular.

User: RussUSA41

One highlight that I enjoyed was Drive in, Drive Out. Really great. Oh yea, Watchtower!!!!! P.S. - The Traffic Sucked

Second Dave show, it was awesome! Only they came out a little late and only one encore song. Everything about that was awesome!! I want it! B&P w/ me someone!!

User: SlateDMB
Review:
Couldn't really remember. We had no tickets when we got there, tried to pick some up but a bunch of shitty people denied tickets and tried to sell them for too f'n much. So I waited in the line at the front for any extras. The people working there were having a hell of a time getting things done and were being bitched at and called names by hundreds of fools trying to get tickets. I just stood there and waited. About the 3rd song in the lady gives my four box seat tickets near the stage for free. Killer time: I was stoned as shit the whole time, but I remember it being a blast as always. Great to hear the new songs polished up a little.

User: sorightwise
Review:
the seats i had were unbeleivable, hearing pig and joyride for the first time made it a great show. i think dave was sick or something but the skatting and the will to put on a great show through that sore throat, incredible.

Great show. Seems like Dave's voice was off a little, but it was my first DMB concert and it was...mind-blowing.

User: trikyniky44
Review:
pretty damn good. lots of new songs. crowd was totally into it. only one encore, and even though it was watchtower, it was disapointing to only hear one song.

User: tyewarren
Review:
The best set yet in Charlotte. Dave was experiencing some vocal pain obviously so the high notes were gone but it did not effect the energy of the show!

User: vpnall
Review:
Awesome show, a little short, but very sweet. Like someone said, hard to top last years'.

User: wadec76
Review:
Show was pretty good. Not the best I have seen, but I did like the addition of some new songs I had never heard before.

User: willcannon
Review:
B- show. Dave's throat was a mess, so no complaints - but if the intended setlist was actually performed, the show would have been much better.

User: WilliamDMBFan

great show! WATCHTOWER!!
