Typical Situation was AWESOME! The rain cleared just in time for Dave.

Wow! Wow! Wow! This was by far the best DMB show I\'ve been to. The energy was awesome, the vocals were strong, and the instrumentals were tuned in perfectly. Everything was crisp and sounded great! The only thing I would have changed is to substitute Warehouse for Ants Marching in the encore since they closed the show with Ants Marching at this venue last year.

This was my first time seeing Dave or listening to the DMB. I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the show. Most of the songs were from the Stand Up album, and I fell in love. I went home and for the next week I learned every song on that album. I think Stand Up is amazing...I credit the great writing and amazing stucture to my absolute LOVE for Dave,Carter,Leroi, and Stephan! I now know nearly EVERY song that the band or Dave has done. AMAZING AMAZING SHOW...and I'm hard to impress..especially the first time!

Great show! Warehouse lawn tickets rock! Joyride tease, Carter solo, incredible energy and nice downpour before the show got everyone fired up. Dave and the guys just look like they are having a blast on stage this tour. Can't wait for Starwood!

Simply amazing. My very first experience with Dave Matthews Band live and I wouldn't give it up for the world. Beautiful setlist and crowd of friends made the night pseudo-magical. All the hype, all the chatter, all the excitement, could not come close to the actual event. Thanks Dave, for everything.

first dave show ive been to and im goin back june 21st and lookin forward to it...great show just like every other live show ive ever heard from dave

User: BigEyedFish87
Review:
The show was awesome but i woulda like more songs that werent from stand up

User: BigSmiley360
Review:
I wish he had played less off of Stand Up. But he opened with Don't Drink the Water, played Watchtower (my favorite song), and closed with Ants Marching, so it's hard to complain.

Not DMB's best but good, the new stuff rocks but took too much of the show. American Baby and Bayou were awesome!

Once again dmb put on another great show in NC.

Not a bad night. The rain brought out the crazy side in some people before the show started. But the clouds parted just in time for the show to start. Very good mix of old and new songs. American Baby and Hello Again we very strong from the new CD. The crowd was into it and Dave and the band looked and sounded great. One of the better shows in Raleigh in a while.

User: BruceW
Review:
awesome DDTW intro if you pay attention, awesome bayou, and loved the light show once again, not as much talking as i wouldve liked but still solid show...worth the download

User: Brynnie311
Review:
actually last year he finished with Tripping Billies in his encore, but you're right Ants Marching was the last song before the encore

Another great show at Walnut Creek. I especially enjoyed the jam during "Typical Situation".

This was my 2nd DMB show of the summer. After seeing them in Charlotte the night before my buddies and I packed up to see if it could possibly get better in Raleigh. YES It Did! The rain soaked us and we got muddy and then we heard the drop d tunning and knew this would kick Charlotte's you know what. Song after song the setlist was great, the energy was high, and the DMB Love was all around. Great Show!

First show I've been too and was totally blown away by hearing Ants and Watchtower. Great experience I will never forget.

User: crush71
Review:
This was the third show that I have been to. Normally the Raleigh show is in July towards the end of the tour so Dave is usually a bit tired and it shows. The Band simply jammed the entire night. I really did not have much taste for the new songs off of Stand Up but after hearing them rock out live, I have a whole new respect for the Stand Up album and think it is up there with the other classics. Excellent show!

Unreal,, Say goodbye, #41, Typical, Crash, perfect, crowd made the show,, would not have wanted to be at any other show,, keep rockin'

We were drenched from the downpour while tailgating but the rain stopped right before DMB took the stage. Yet another blast at Walnut Creek!

User: derz
Review:
Great show! It poured for the tailgate then it finished right before we started to head in. Played a sweet Say Goodbye, and a typical situation. The new songs sound pretty good in concert they pump them up alot.

my prayers were answered when i realized that carters solo (other than hello again) was the intro to say goodbye. been wanting to see it live. boyds solo in watchtower was insane. i knew the setlist list would be heavy on stand up, glad they played the better ones (no dirt hill, stolen away).

User: dmb1103

great set

Awesome show, stood out in the rain to listen to the horrible drive by truckers and it was totally worth it.

Best version of Wathctower I have ever heard...period. Minor disagreements with the setlists, but still an amazing show

User: dmechum1
Review:
Great setlist...Alltel security was rediculous though i picked up a drinking ticket but it didnt ruin the awesome show. Carter threw in some great solos.

User: Dnet77

The show was awesome. The seats were the best I ever had. DMB is great.

User: donad21

Great show. The band is evolving still... The band seemed more relaxed this tour and even though there seemed to be more layed back songs, they still rocked the house.

User: DrewLeon738
Review:
Pretty good show. The opener and closer were pretty good. Say goodbye was a treat for the 3rd night in a row. The little jam during typical situation was stellar. AATW had soo much energy with a good intro by stefan. Overall a decent concert, not bad at all. Maybe not quite as good as last year but the 34 and joyride had me going.

Missed the first two songs and what i heard was a good Drive By Truckers opener. "Louisianna bayou" was my favorite.

User: hailtopitt78

great show, lots of energy. Nicely incorporated the new songs and as I thought...they were much better live.

3rd row

User: jessethestanfor
Review:
It sounded like there were about a dozen Nancies teases... just the first two notes in between almost every song. Also, before DMB came out there was an awesome complete rainbow that started at the horizon to the left of the pavilion and went all the way around it to the horizon to the right of the pavilion. I looked at my buddy when I saw that and said "This is gonna be a good show." I was right.

During Ants at the end, during the breakdown with Boyd riffs, Carters snare dropped. Without missing a beat he turned to his side snare and kept the breakdown going. Henry had to hurriedly swap out the entire snare and stand weaving it in between and under the hi-hats and various other stands. This took some time where the entire band was continuing playing and watching this very closely in awe. Just as Henry took his hands off the completed swap of the snare the band, and Carter, rip back into the ending of Ants Marching. I seem to recall everyone fans, band and crew giving Henry an ovation.

This was a great show. Almost compared to 2005 Bonnaroo Show.

User: jsprang
Review:
AWESOME! one of the highlights for me was seeing Dave have so much fun in between songs. During Butch's intro to "Steady As We Go" Dave was looking around like, "mmkay, now what song is this?" And then when Butch went into the main part that everyone knows the crowd began to cheer and he smiled. Another highlight of course was the "Joy Ride" tease. He was looking at the person shooting from the front like, "yeah, we'll do it but we're not gonna do the whole thing." It was crazy!

User: jstoller1

Pretty damn good, very impressed with Stand Up live.

User: mcmunn

I'm blown away. Carter and Boyd were the stars tonight. Seems like Boyd always shines in Walnut Creek. I think Walnut Creek is my favorite venue to see DMB.

best show ive ever been to. It was definitely a radio friendly set, but every song was played with the most energy, and there was just about every catchy tune you could ask for.

The rain and muddy conditions made this one of the all-time best shows ever. By the time we went into the concert we were all soaking wet messes (and drunken). It was truly a memorable show. Great set, great time.

By far the best DMB show I've been to !! Can't wait to see them again

User: warehouse999

Great to hear Say Goodbye once again....#41 was solid along with Typical. Die Trying is a good tune and to hear #34 if only for a brief second was fantastic!
