    Live 5 miles away, very happy I don't have to battle my way up to LA on a weeknight.

    If you're not in the bleachers, the sound is actually pretty good. Parking at the train station is the way to go.

    Wasn’t around for the last tour dates and was hoping to see China pop up again. Might make the trip up for N2. Not sure I wanna spend the $$ for both nights these days.

    The old Irvine venue was actually my last full band show way back when.

    The problem with the floor seating is there is hardly any incline. Makes it very difficult to see the stage if you're not in the front sections.

    This is very true.

    New Irvine venue won't be done until 2025.

    8/24 is an AXS show.

    Fiddler's Green has been AXS shows. Did those shows have WH requests?

    No one wants to go to a Thursday show in the Inland Empire.

    Probably because the casino said "well pay you x amount of money to come play here but we want xx".

    XX being they want to control all the tickets. I'm sure these will be pricier tickets like when the band was supposed to play in OK.

    Also posted in the "rumors" thread:

    On the AXS website, it's showing the Yaamava' show as 21+. I'm guessing that's due to it being at a casino. It's not like that in Tahoe, is it? Or any other casino venue?

    Yaamava is a head scratcher. Online says max capacity is 3k seats. Would sure make a good venue for a D & T show.

    Anyone know when the last time they did 3 nights in a row somewhere other than the Gorge? I realize they're split between 2 venues, but it's still 3 nights in a row, and a strain on Dave's voice. Then 3 in a row the following weekend as well.

    I was thinking the same thing. Thankfully, the 1st night at Yaamava will be the first show coming back from the 4ish week break. Hopefully his voice is good and rested at that point, ready to finish out a heavy workload for the end of the tour.

    Not sure if it was the last time, but in 2014, they did 3 in Berkeley, 1 in Bend, and then 3 at the Gorge. 7 shows from 8/22-/31.

    Is the venue in a decent area? Never been. Have spent a lot of time in Ventura, and always wanted to go to San Diego, but this kind of feels like no man's land just looking at the map

    Re: ***Official SoCal Irvine 2023***

    Anyone opposed to having a separate thread for Yaamava? Or is it a given that everyone's doing all 3?

    Incidentally, that show is going to be pricey. Based on what I'm seeing for other big acts there, seats down front will probably be in the $500-$700 range.

    I don't know. The prices for Santana are that high, but some of the other shows like George Thorogood, Joan Jett, Goo Goo Dolls, Offspring, are all reasonably priced. I'm not sure if they're going to have dynamic pricing, in which case, the price could get up there. I doubt it will be $500-$700 though. Even the resale prices for Vegas in 2020 were not that high.


    Funny though, on their event page, they have it listed as "Dave Matthews Bands."

    Yamaava is a NIGHTMARE. It’s impossible to move anywhere inside the casino, it’s constantly multiple people deep for any seats there. The hotel rooms are $800 a night for shit rooms. I’d avoid it if you could.

    Looking forward to not seeing any of you at Irvine. Not because I’m not going, but because people are scary.

    Itís a small-ish theater that seats about 3000 so itíll probably be pretty hard. Thereís probably going to be a bunch of comps for it, too. So thatíll make it even more difficult. (Unless they have an outdoor venue now too)
