Great show, awesome weather, and amazing setlist. Highlights were definitely Crash, 2 Step, Warehouse, Grey Street, and of course Granny. The band was great tonight with great energy. Looking forward to another great show 2morrow.

This show was great. The people in the lawn were cool and didn't crowd each other as they have at other shows I have been to. The highlight of the night for me was definitely Two Step. Great way to end the night.

started out a little slow, but built into a very enjoyable show. can't stress it enough that WAYG needs to be retired, but You Never Know was awesome to hear. carter dominated during two step, as did butch and stefan. the band seemed really pumped playing this weekend, which is always great.

Amazing. My first Dave Matthews band concert and it was absolutely amazing. Nothing you haven't heard before I'm sure!

User: Chrisco
Review:
Decent show. I'm not a fan of the new album so this concert felt slow and tiring at times. The fight behind us ruined the first few songs:( Getting out of the parking lot here sucks but is better than past years.

Amazing seats (section 03, just rows from Boyd). Highlight of the night was definitely getting to hear "You Never Know" - I "never knew" I'd get to hear that song live! Ha! Also, Granny was awesome, as were the mess ups on Lousiana Bayou by Dave and Boyd's incredibly bad singing at the beginning of Jimi Thing. Got another Two Step closer, which didn't thrill me, but the show as a whole was great. Plus I got to hear Smooth Rider and You Might Die Trying, which sound so killer live - so no complaints here. The band looked like they were having fun on stage.

This was my first show. I went hoping to hear either Warehouse or Two Step (my two favorites). Well, I got to hear both. Plus Grey Street. It was amazing. We were the ones holding up the pirate flag up front!!

Good show tonight. It was amazing to hear You Never Know after two years, Granny and Grey Street were both fantastic too. And of course the Two Step was close to epic.

FINALLY got my two step. It took 9 shows to get it, but I finally did, and I wasn't let down a bit. Killer

This was my 7th show and I would rank it #2 behind 7.30.04. The energy from the band was mind blowing. Dave in particular seemed so pumped throughout that even WAYG was tolerable. I saw that YNK was soundchecked in Tampa, but I never thought that I would hear that song this weekend. I was absolutely blown away. I wish the crowd had appreciated it more, because it hasn't been played since 2003. It just goes to show that there are always a lot of newbies in attendance at shows. The crowd had a blast, and the band looked pumped when they left the stage. Overall, it was quite a memorable show.

My 20th show!!! Heard 4 out of my top 5 Dave songs! And hearing them play "You Never Know" was out of this world!!! I took a DMB virgin to this show too! She was hooked after that! Wow....what an amazing night!

Well this was my 1st DMB show! A good friend of mine is a huge fan and we went down to West Palm for both shows. This was great! They played alot of the songs that I like such as; One Sweet World, Crash Into Me, Grey Street, Warehouse, and Granny! Man when they started off with One sweet World I was so excited...then they kept playing songs I liked. Dreamgirl was really cool live. OH...and HUnger for the Great Light was my favorite! It was such a crowd pleaser and the band was really into it. I was never really a big fan of dont drink the water until I heard it live. Alot of their new stuff they were really into such as; bayou and smooth rider. They had some awesome lights and breakdowns on these. Too much was a great ender before the encore leaving the crowd to think what will be next? Overall my first show was a great one :). I am definately a DMB fan now!

I was in the parking lot with the Limo Drivers, I could not get a ticket. Sat on the Ducati. Good seat, not a good view. Going on Dave's Cruise 2/3/06.

Solid show tonight. Highlights were Bayou and Two Step, and the return of You Never Know. Bayou is becoming a beast of a song...right there with Hello Again for most powerful off the new album. I think it comes off really well being played with the electric. Two Step was great tonight too, with a solid jam by Butch and some incredible work by Carter - as always. Only complaint is that Dreamgirl is becoming a monotonous beast that just won't end...I never thought I'd say this, but just give me WAYG...

Pretty sweet show, man the Stand Up songs are very awesome live. Smooth Rider, Bayou, Might Die Trying and my personal favorite, Old Dirt Hill all had some sweet jams. OSW to open was awesome, miss the jam intro though. You Never Know was awesome, didn't seem like too many people knew what it was. Disappointing. Jimi Thing, Granny, Too Much, were all awesome as always. Two Step was a cool closer, nice jam. The highlight of the show for me was Warehouse. Just a classic song with some Dave dancing. Great show, can't wait for Red Rocks!

Jimi Thing was unreal, kept passing the jimi thing throughout the whole 20 minutes of the song. The guys went nuts on their instruments througout the concert, Two Step was one hell of a perfromance!

These guys totally rocked. Carter is just a beast as well as the rest of the guys. Not enough respect for Butch around here but he really adds to the overall sound. Can't decide which night I liked better...WPB 1 or WPB2?

Well...in a word I thought the show was incredible...I thought the evening was going to be incredible when they played Crash, but then they played You Never Know, Grey Street, Warehouse and finished it all off with Two Step...I could have been buried in the lawn of the place and died happy...Great crowd, great section on the lawn...I wish I could have stayed for Sunday...but hopefully I got the better of the two nights...yay for DMB!

Wow...what an outstanding show. They seemed way too chill for the first three songs, then they picked it up a bit in "Hunger for the Great Light". Then "Don't Drink the Water" absolutely exploded; it was an incredible moment. They pulled quite a few surprises in the set, including "You Never Know", "Warehouse", "Granny", "Grey Street", and ended the whole show with an AMAZING "Two Step". Everyone in the crowd was into this show, as DMB kept us all on our feet. They were really jammin' out at every possible moment, and it led to some awesome stuff. Unbelievably great show.

Ranks high on my all-time list. PHENOMENAL SHOW. Me and my little bro spent the weekend in West Palm and saw these shows. TWO-STEP CLOSER, yahoo! You Never Know & DDTW & Granny was awesome!

You Never Know was a BIG shock... first YNK since '03... overall pretty happy... disappointed though that WAYG and Warehouse were repeated again, since they were played in Tampa 2 days before this show. Also, how is it i usually get stuck around, loud, obnoxious, drunk people??

Just got back and i too am extremely pleased...the opening songs felt kind of uninspired but something clicked in the middle of DDTW because the band just started to go nuts...You Never Know was the most pleasant suprise ever but i dont think most of the crowd appreciated what was going on...they unfortunately seemed more into old dirt hill than YNK but what can you do...Smooth Rider suprised me as a strong song that they really got into...Warehouse and Granny were really strong and Warehouse was soooo energetic...Louisiana Bayou was sick although there was a bit of a mishap near the third verse..Jimi Thing was epic...the Two Step chant was finally answered in the encore and i couldnt be more pleased...bravo...looking forward to everything but the horrendous traffic tomorrow

Definitely the best of the 3 FLA shows. The energy was intense and it was a "dance your ass off" type of show. Two Step was amazing! Also great to hear You Never Know and Granny.

User: spac97

First time to a show in WPB. Great venue and crowd, weather wasn't bad either for July in Florida. Anyway, a slow but great begining to the show. OSW and Crash were definitely a welcome suprise. Energy quickly escalated with DDTW though. Warehouse was great and my first live Grey Street made my night. New stuff was ok, still has to grow on me I think. American Baby was pretty cool live. I was really hoping they would through Joy Ride in there somewhere, oh well. Two Step closer was the icing on the cake though. It was great to get back to see the band live again, its been a while.

I have to say, out of 9 shows, this was my least fave. Thank God for Two Step, Granny, Warehouse, and Grey Street, 'cause otherwise it was lackluster. Even Jimi Thing sounded tired- Butch can really take a song into the wrong direction sometimes. OSW and Crash were weaker than usual, and WAYG I can do w/o. The SU tunes, as expected, were the low points of the night, and there were 7 of 'em. ODH is possibly the worst DMB tune, and even Bayou isn't as good as everyone seems to think. Am I the only one who cringes when Dave grabs anything other than an acoustic? Hopefully, SU will fade into obscurity like most of Everyday has. I never thought I'd write a sub-par review, but between the loud, drunk kids on the lawn and a SU heavy set, this just didn't do it for this fan who loves DMB.

Great show! It was awesome to hear Crash. The jams were terrific. Great, Great, Great!!

Show was awesome. The band seemed to take a few songs to really get into it, but during DDTW they found thier groove and the rest of the show was amazing. They reminded me why I love this band so much...then they played Old Dirt Hill. What a peice of crap that song is, but they had some engery and a few people in the crowd were into it. Then they picked things up with Two Step as a closer! They also nearly lost it during the second chorus...every member of the band played a different part of the song...but they somehow averted the train wreck. Traffic wasnt too crazy for me once I figured out how to get out of the wierd ass parking lot. Great show overall!

Awesome set as always!

User: voxlaw

A MUCH better show than last time out in Tampa. Most of the songs were excellent, especially Warehouse, Two Step, and You Never Know (!) and Grey Street. You Might Die Trying didn't -pop- like it did at Bonnaroo, and Old Dirt Hill is hopeless, though the crowd got into it again tonight, as they did in Tampa. Very pleased.

One of the best of nine shows since '02 I've seen - 5th this year. Set list that really made me happy. Carter was on fire on an ungodly hot night. Good Butch solos on Jimi Thing & Two Step. They're maintaining the energy every night. Thank you very much!
