This was my very first show! I only rate it a 4 because I didn't know every song, but looking back on it now, holy crap was this an awesome setlist, could have been up there as one of the best one I have been to yet had I known them all!

Although its start was a bit wary of even happening, with looming, pitch black clouds hanging above grey-yellow skies, the DMB didn't fail to blow everyone away. Tim Reynolds left his mark on every song in his own unique way, combining with everyone else's supreme talent to bring a loud and proud concert to the de-snowed ski slopes of Montage Mountain. In my opinion, and I'm sure most would agree, the Dave Matthews Band continues to reign supreme as the number one act of the summer schedule here in Moosic, PA.

Fucking 41 opener. damn damn damn. i thought i heard him strum it a lil be4 they started but i didnt wana believe it i thought he was just fucking around. and ants after come on an early set ants with a dave and tim intro and then redoing the frist verse again with the band. then pay for what you get and recently and water/wine jam fabulous. great old school shit going on there. crush after was good as it always is live. 27 too real nice and tight. the idea of you seemed to have a shotgun intro for whatever reason real fast for a lil while. sounded like they were going to play that for a second. good two step at the end and a nice so much to say also be4 that. too much is wearing on me and so is sister. money and thank you were nice but i left cuz i had heard them both already and wanted to get back to my car and smoke a bowl. nice preformance tonight tho real good as always.

It was definitely an interesting and awesome show. Timmy adds a whole new aspect to the sound. My dad was with me and "Two Step" is his favorite song, and I was sure they wouldn't attempt it without Butch on piano, but they did, and it ROCKED! I think a DMBTR live album needs to come out of this tour. And if ANYONE has a video of dave dancing during "Thank you," PLEASE put that up on youTube.

First show and it was awesome. #41 followed by ants to start was a nice surprise and set the tone for the rest of the show. Crush blew the roof off the place and may have been the highlight of the night for me. Good mix between old and new songs. Not one bad song and the covers were a great way to end the night.

not a bad show. loved the encore. ended up real close and had a blast at the end. what happened to all the covers he's been doing. I saw him in pittsburg and he did 3 covers. i'm a little pissed he did this show w/ no built in travel day and it was a long hall from michigan. i just hope by the end of the tour they cover some zeppelin & hendrix (they did it w/ dave and friends) timmy's a gem make the most of him.

Probably the best show Ill ever see them play. Went classic on us and opened with 41, threw out some oldies like pay for what you get and recently, and rocked the house with their last few songs. Incredible stuff...

Scranton, PA has a nice venue. It's certainly a cookie cutter venue, but in a nice location... which makes it all better. Being from Colorado, I would hardly compare this place to Red Rocks for beauty, sound, or anything else. Hell, I wouldn't even call it a mountain. But that's digressing.

The people of Scranton were very nice. The vibe was very good. The concert, therefore, became a positive experience. Who can argue with a #41 opener, or a show that featured some of DMB's greatest live gems in Crush, Two Step, and Rhyme and Reason? Also... Pay for What You Get... wow! Hadn't heard that since Red Rocks in 97. Water-Wine was nice... it always make me like recently better. I'm mixed on the covers. What I've always liked about DMB's rendition of Watchtower was their ability to make the song their own. Money still sounds like Pink Floyd, accept at Karaoke time. And the screen imagery doesn't do it for me. I know gasoline is expensive Dave, we wasted plenty of it trying to get out of the parking lot after the show! Now play something different... The other cover, Thank You, rocked. The boys need to keep that one around for a while... lots of fun.

Clearly Tim Reynolds adds something to the band... he makes the more "Rock Stars." Let's face it, they were louder and kicked way more ass than they ever do when there is a piano involved. Some will say it wasn't as "smooth" as shows in the past. To them, I would say good... because it rocked much harder. I feel like some amazing things are going to happen on this tour... I can't wait for their Denver show.

I'm having a hard time deciding how I felt about this show. I LOVE Tim with the band. And this setlist was completly unpredictable and included some jems. But I felt like it was too mellow mid show and there were times when they really just lost the crowd. It picked up pace at the end and the three song encore was a great plus, but I could have lived without Sister.

deffinatly a sick set list, awsome long jams, encore was great expect for the sound ina few spots, when they opened with 41 not all of the band members were ready, but besides that dave throwing his guitar and dancing for 10 mins was an awsome way to end the concert, plus i got to meet tim reynolds.

Yes, amazing opening with #41 and Ants, but I think Crush was the highlight of the night. Totally blew the roof off the place. First time at Montage - really cool venue. Gonna be hard to top this one, but I sure hope they do it at Darien.

This was my very first DMB show ever. I am a HUGE fan, and never thought I'd see the day that I'd get to watch Dave and the Band play LIVE rather than on DVDs. The weather that night made the show even more exciting! Storm clouds rolled thru; lightening and thunder ever couple of minutes, but very little rain. We arrived at the parkinglot around 1pm and just hung out, BBQ'd, and smoked the day away into the night where I remember not believing I was actually watching the band walk on stage in-person rather than in videos! Not only did the band start off the show with my favorate song in the world (#41), but I never thought I'd see Dave dance the way he did without his guitar at the end of the show (encore)! I don't think any moment in my life will ever match or beat the amount of excitement on this day!

Great show, I have not seen a review this tour that was asking for a live trax, montage needs one, this show was killer, the whole band was into it from the start, they blew the doors off the place, top 3 of my 20 some shows. Recently, wine/water, yes !!!!! No way anybody of the set list game had #41, ants to start.

An awesome show but not as good as the night before. The two step was sick. If i could I would rate them all a 5. The set list was mised up pretty good for seeing a double header though. A variety of songs for sure. Timmy is the man.

My first DMB Show. Came all the way from Europe to attend the show in Scranton. Loved the show. Unfortunately I haven't been a fan long enough to know all the songs. They didn't play most of my favorites. But it was good.

Havn't been to that many shows, but this was deff. my favorite. #41 and Ants opener were amazing. Tim adds another cool layer to all the songs. He took Cornbread to a whole new level. Money/Thank You were a perfect way to end a show.

This was the best show I saw out all of the ones I went to this past year. 41 opener was perfect for the setting. Recently and Pay For What You Get were very well done. A great vibe was established early with this crowd and built up to make this an amazing time. Dave even commented on how much he and the band like comming to this place. Crush was definitely the song of the night. The best I've heard...ever. Tim Reynolds adds alot to the sound of this tune and the end of this 14-minute masterpiece brought about a fan reaction I haven't seen in years. Definitely want to come back to this venue.

Wow! #41 opener, right into Ants! Stolen Away and Smooth Rider were actually pretty tight, too! Not one bad song all night! Pay for what you get was unreal, as was Recently and Water/Wine! Overall, the night was Timmy's! Crush was unbelievable, as was Too Much! Thank you Tim! Oh, and Dave's dance during Thank You was unreal! Hopefully they'll come back next year for 2 nights!

WOW What a Show! The energy of the crowd was amazing and the noise they made as #41 started was fantastic!! Crush was on fire, and we got Pay for What You Get and Recently! Carter was on fire as Two Step ended and Dave's dancing finished off a great night! Here's hoping for a 4th DMB appearance in 2009!!!!

The Crowd erupted as the first chords of #41 ran through the Pavilion and anyone who did not goosebumps is really lying.

The acustic Ants opening was awsome...just was not used to hearing Ants second.

Rhyme or Reason should only be played when Tim is touring with the band.

Idea of You was awsome and it stole my wind as i love that song.

CornBead, Payfor what you get, and recently never get old to me.

Where are you going just dosent get me fired up as it did when butch was there.

SO Much to say-Bridge-Too Much is my favorite..so it never gets old to me..

Two Step is Two STep..there is no bad two step..

As always a solid encore as always...
