My first Dave show...really went to see Ben Harper, but this was an enlightening experience to say the least!

Overall i thought the show was great. I loved lie in our graves into warehouse. That was awesome and watchtower was awesome and i also loved stay and grey street. I wish he could of played a few more songs.

incredible show!!! the energy was awesome... the band was into it... and the set list was kick ass!! The best show I've seen in FL in a long time..... hani hani....

Awesome show...energy was great...wished we could of heard the end to graves, but I can't complain!...to the people upset about the gator chants, wow, settle down...it added to the energy and as far as the fans go, no complaints on the left side of the O-dome...and if you are a stoner, a couple of orange and blue's aren't gonna get to you, buddy...ESPECIALLY not at a Dave show

This was a great show, WatchTower was awsome. Dave was very non-partisan, which is what I had hoped for. I was encouraged by his words to Vote and as an American Citizen it is my duty to do so(and should be everyones) Unfortunately my only show this year, but very worth it. I will be looking for this show for download(an excellant choice I would say for all)

my 7th show so far. absolutely loved the setlist, which brought me my first pig as well as lie in our graves. the band was on fire the whole night; again, it's so good to hear them really jamming again. the only low point was butch getting a little sappy towards the end of graves, and that was quickly forgotten with an instant transition into an intense warehouse. a very energetic, upbeat show. it rocked my socks. but please, gainesville (and i live there), don't chant "ORANGE! BLUE!" during the encore break. just don't.

Pig and LIOG was by far, a highlight for me. Have been waiting years to hear them. Awesome show, although I was little jealous, my friend sat 4 row. That bitch.

great show, J5 followed by Ben Harper. Then DMB. Crazy

User: chris potts
Review:
This show was unreal... One of the best Lie In Our Graves jam I've ever seen. My only complaints were No Finish to LIOG, no Harper duo, and no Jimmy Buffet (who was a rumored guest before the show). Great Job!

Birthday Dave show! No better way to ring in your 22nd year than watching DMB open with Don't Drink the Water (my dream opener), Pig, and keep it rocking hard all the way through the encore of Everyday > #36 and Watchtower (which I predicted just before it happened). Big highlights were also Dave breaking a string during Too Much and the band jamming briefly while he changed guitars - so cool! Stephan was so bad ass during Anyone Seen The Bridge. Also loved hearing Stay. Best show I've been to!

Obviously, this show had a bit of a political slant being on the "Vote for Change" tour. Jurassic Five was a fantastic opener. Sound seemed a bit off, like Dave's microphone wasn't turned up enough to hear him over the music. Still, great night and for a wonderful cause.

User: CSchneids929

Solid Show for the final show on the tour... great energy, great songs. hello again was a pretty cool song hearing it for the first time. wish i heard 2 or 3 more new songs... and i wished ben harper came on watchtower.. ANYONE SEEN THE BRIDGE SEEMED A LITTLE MORE FUNKIER THEN USUAL... GOOD SHOW,,

Fantastic!!! Called the "Don't Drink The Water" from the get-go and the "Don't Burn The Pig" was almost as good! All-in-all the show was great, although I am dissapointed with the "Watchtower"...Again!! And no Ben Harper? Nonetheless the show was amazing and the Energy inside the hall was incredible, I can't wait to se DMB again and again and again....

Review:
First 5 songs were stellar. Started off REALLY strong. The boys were solid, and played well throughout. LIOG was good, Boyd stayed on point. It was cool that they dropped the reprise and went directly into WH. Watchtower was also very good. This wasn't one of the best show I've seen, it was just solid. Only low points for me were WAYG, and Stay.

User: DisturbedSaxGuy
Review:
Great show. Finally got to hear LIOG and Pig!! Only thing that sucked about it was the crowd. How can you stay seated for Hello Again and then stand up and go crazy for Grey Street? G.S. is an okay song and all, but come on, Hello Again has too much energy for you to just sit there. Oh yeah, fuck off with the Blue-Orange thing, how stupid can you get. Amazing show, terrible crowd. Could have done without Jurassic 5.

User: dmb4ever9

The show started out with an amazing DDTW. Probably the best I've ever heard it. Dave went right into the next few songs with a lot of juice and his intro to pig was very cool. Dave was like a little kid on sugar though, with his very explosive energy in the beginning to an almost crash down about half way through. I felt bad cuz you could tell he was tired. The band was still playing some awesome music. Carter and Hello Again was amazing. I was they woould have brought out Ben Harper for a song or two, but you can't get everything you want. Watchtower is always a pleaser and Everyday was short and sweet the way it should be for that concert. All in all, never been to a bad DMB concert so it was all good.

Another one of the best concerts I've ever seen. Just watching so many musicians in one night on the same stage. INCREDIBLE

User: DMBfan6450
Review:
Absolutely incredible. I loved every minute of it. you could tell the crowd was into it. I was especiallay impressed with watchtower as I have never seen it live. I have yet to be dissappointed with the band or dave. These guys are the only band I have ever heard who do not have a song or performance i dont love.

Awesome show I was really really let down by the crowd though. It seemed like they didnt care that the Dave Matthews Band was playing a great set in front of them. Typical UF attitude. Anyway. The band rocked out and it seemed like Leroi was having problems on his sax hence the abrupt end of LIOG. Anway Just happy to be there. Thanks alot DMB.

It was amazing. There were a few highlights that really made the night special. I have been to a few DMB shows this year but Carter performed this drum solo and then keep repeating it but faster and faster. It blew everyone away.

Ok.... Show was good, but not Great.... Setlist was good, the first Pig live... Thanks Dave!!!!! BUT PLEASE DO NOT EVER PLAY IN GAINESVILLE AGAIN!!!!! The arena sucked for a show... Great visually but horrible acoustics!!!! And the fans that had no idea what Dave plays other than Crash and Gravedigger were absolutly annoying and really killed the mood for the TRUE followers!!!!! I really wish that Dave would have come out in the encore break and announced that "this is not a Fu@_ing Pep-Rally" and he was not going to play anymore...... HOW RIDICULOUS YOU GAY-TOR fans are..... Stick to football and leave DMB concerts to us stoners!!!!!! Peace DMB rocks

Best seats for a DMB show so far. The night was awesome. Fist time hearing Pig live. It was Great!

This was an excellent show. Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals opened, and they rocked the place. Dave was at his best. He was on fire, for sure. I hope someone taped this, because I'd love to hear it all again.

The Show was absolutely amazing. I will attend every show that is within driving distance of where I live. I tend to think arena shows are not the best because of the acoustic distortion in venues with metal ceilings but this will be one exception. All seats in the arena were amazing and felt very intimate. The song selection was a wonderful choice and very suprising when the show ended with an encore of Watchtower. Outisde of Dave Matthews being the main event, Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals were once again a great addition to the show along with a change of pace opening by Jurassic 5. This was now my 17th show attendance and look forward to the hope of a Winter tour show in the Tampa, Fl area. Thank you Dave and friends for another enjoyable night of musical genius. I hope to see you all again very soon!

User: patentgator
Review:
First time I've seen Dave in my college town. The sound at the O'Dome was okay and the crowd seemed, for the most part, to know none of the songs other than SMTS and Too Much. They had no clue what was going on when SMTS crossed over to Too Much with ASTB. Hello Again has really progressed since I saw him in July in Tampa. But, of course, nobody in the audience knew the song and decided to use it as a talking break. Dave's voice seemed a bit dead during OSW and through the end of the show, but Boyd and Carter had enough energy to carry the show. But an average DMB show is better than no DMB show, so no complaints. Look forward to the new album and next tour.

One of the best shows I've ever been to. Great seats. The bass in Bridge was amazing...and I'm still trying to figure out what that tiny little song was after DDTW. It was awesome, though! :)

Good show. Great energy on ASTB. Dave mixed up words/verses on So Much to Say and Stay, but laughed it off. Disappointed in LIOG -- they skipped the long pause-->"I can't believe..." I thought they might reprise it, but unfortunately they didn't. Would've also liked to have seen Ben Harper or J5 come out with DMB to do a little something, but no guests.

Unbelievable, fantastic, awesome crowd and band energy. The setlist was amazing. I am shocked that they only played one new song, they ripped apart watchtower, never heard it sound so good. The band definately seemed into it. Loved hearing Pig and Stay, just awesome, no words could express how great it was.

Awesome show, I really enjoyed the BTCS heavy set. Pig, Stone, Stay, DDTW, all great. Plus Hello Again is one of the best songs I've seen live. Great energy, it's always great to hear the band in a smaller venue, even if the acoustics in the O'Dome are always a bit muffled and base-heavy. I'm still not crazy but about Boyd's violin part on Everyday, but every other song rocked. Watchtower is a great high-energy song to end the show.

User: stevieg

Good show. As others indicated, it is a terrible venue for music. 1st LIOG and Pig for me, so it was nice. Strange that LIOG> Warehouse, but cool-probably wished that LIOG was jammed out instead. Overall, sweet show.

show was great until I was thrown out, as were many other all for no reason. Hope dmb never comes back to this horrible venue. They are too good for those aholes! sounds quality was horrendous as well. a stadium not meant for concerts.

This show for me was excellent because of the songs played. Some of my absolute favorites hit within the first five songs Hello Again, The Stone and Grey Street, especially The Stone, which is a top 5 for me and rarely played. Also the sound inside is always good in my opinion. Watchtower was very explosive! Cry Freedom is always a rare hear too and there is something about One Sweet World that just feels good.
