I get that 100% - I just think its unfair to not give people the option or even an update of what to expect.

    If you order a size 10 shoe and were given a size 7 shoe do you just say Hey they dont fit but it still looks good?

    How successful have you been getting refunds from sporting events when the players you wanted to see weren't playing?

    Over half the people in the crowd at a Wednesday night show in Bend, Oregon won’t even realize anything’s different. As long as there’s Dave Matthews and a band, I think they feel like they’ve held up their end of the bargain.

    Are there shoe stores that charge lower prices for smaller sizes of the same shoe?

    Lol that is completely different. The actual game that was sold is going on - this is a completely different concert your seeing.

    Would this normally be sold as Dave Matthews Band or Dave & Friends? Fans are currently being charged for a much lesser value in my opinion

    Should they call them DMB & CO. like Dead & CO. and their John Mayer setup?

    The show is still going on


    Maybe some hybrid since you are seeing both


    Bon Iver sells tickets as Bon Iver even for solo Justin Vernon shows

    Come on this isn't even close to the same scenario that is expected in professional sports. The band should have announced this with plenty of time for people to have a chance to change plans, because they knew on Friday this is what was happening today.

    With all due respect, I think you're in the wrong. You bought tickets well aware we were (and still are) in the middle of pandemic. We should feel lucky we are still getting concerts as many artists have cancelled shows/tours until 2022 or TBD.

    You knew there was a possibility one or band members at any given point could test positive and not be able to play a show. Obv if it's Dave, show is cancelled but last weekend they got incredibly lucky with Buddy being able to go on drums. The show goes on.

    You know it's okay to not agree with something the band does, regardless of if other people think we should just go with the flow

    Nice, there's plenty to fault the band with and considering they are doing all they can to still have shows and aren't in control of the things you are whining about I'm not going to fault them, their people doing social media has never been good

    This is my only DMB show this year. Carter is the reason I decided to play drums 20 years ago, and now it's my career. All said, I am so fucking jacked for tonight. I hope Buddy has been putting in some work on some of the DMB catalog over the past 3 days and surprises us tonight. Nothing blows more as a musician than having one of your A list players out. Really appreciate the dudes giving us what they got. Let's party!!!

    Edit: Stanton Moore as house music. Loving it.

    At a minimum, they should have announced that Carter and Stefan would be out again in my opinion.

    This is my complaint. I donít want to show up to Irvine on Friday and learn that Carter is still out while walking to my seat.

    I agree. Takes little effort on management to put out a social media post sometime today to make that announcement.

    Come on that is just ignorant to defend the band not letting us know what is going on tonight. How are they not in control about what I'm "whining" about. This is the problem with most dmb fans, Dave could shit in your mouth and you would say well it taste like strawberry it's okay.

    the band should have said on Friday that "Stefan and Carter have tested positive for COVID. For the safety of our crew and the band, they will be in quarantine for 2 weeks following CDC guidlines. We will continue to get tested daily and plan to keep the tour going even with the rest of the band and additional musicians if available."

    none of the "alternative format" vagueness. We've been in this for 1.5 years, we can take bad news.

    Exactly. I wouldn't be cool with paying DMB money for a half Dave solo or Dave and Tim show, least when your paying for those your in a more intimate setting or know what your getting atleast

    Yeah not even close.to the same situation and the band was way more up front about that. If you aren't on the boards or follow the band show to show you had no idea til Dave came out just now what you were getting and that is a bad look.

    I mean your post I quoted is dumb, not much else needs to be said, keep bitching about "the band" as they are doing their best to still put on a show. The strawberry comment is straight up idiotic
