Awesome show....except for all the dick heads who started rushing the stage. Security had NO CONTROL!!

My second show...and it was awsome. Although i was one of the people getting hated on for rushing the floor, i was about 6 rows back and i loved every second of it!

SHow was pretty decent, the crowd was miserable in comparison to the show at RFK a year before. In the recordings you can hear dave doing crowd control. Angel was awesome though. SOngs were done well overall, fans could have been better.

It was my first show. Loved the music, but hated the seating situation. There was chaos in the stands when DMB came on stage. This show did, however, turn me into a true DMB fan.

Boyd was on FIRE... tearing bows up.. craziness.. this was my first show and since I've been to only 5 though Ive purchased tickets and been unable to make it to 4 others... awesome for an indoor show.

Rough trip down to DC. Had car trouble on the way to meet JP down there. Had to stop and get my car fixed on the was, fucking sucked, but when I got there JP had the cold ones and the weed waiting for me. Got pretty banged up, met up with Bart and his cronies. Hung out with Heintz before the show. Good set, but the crowd got kinda wild. JP fat ass, slut cousin never came home so we slept in the jeep.

Music was great, concert was bad... People were bum rushing the stage as soon as the show started. Obviously Dave was upset and trying to get people to back up... Will he ever play RFK again???

Rained like crazy. macy gray opened up. best of whats around and 41 easy highlights. and the lack of security in the RFK lot also was a highlight.

Not too good for me, bad seats, babysitting my friend who had a broken ankle and lots of everyday stuff. It was cool to hear some new songs for the first time.

Awesome show lotsa fun down on the field was like a big party people were great, this coulda gotten VERY ugly but Dave fans arent those sort of people!

User: firedancyr7
Review:
Incredible show! Although poor Dave had to constantly tell the audience to be cool since so many decided to rush the floor and push up toward the stage... although I have to admit I got a great seat once everyone else rushed the floor and left all of theirs open.

This was my first Dave Matthews Show. It was awesome. I wasn't anywhere near into Dave as I am now, but I had started to be. My now late brother Mike, got me into him and I have loved him ever since. Probably the only Dave show I had no alcohol at. haha. Macy Gray, worst opener ever. I did it was awesome, of course I wasn't introduced to all the old greats at the point. Over all, a very fun time.

Good show. Loved Kidjo, was psyched for and really enjoyed Macy. Not a fan of DMB plus keyboards. Solid set, great performances, but the keyboards didn\\\'t add anything I wanted. The Everyday album wasn\\\'t (and still isn\\\'t) one I really enjoyed...not a real band album and you can tell. I think it changed the energy of the band and the tour. I was really disappointed about the Lillywhite sessions not being released. But I enjoyed myself despite being a whiny bitch about it. Stadiums aren\'t a good fit for DMB for me. Arenas and amphitheaters (especially) are the best settings (re: sound and numbers, both more manageable and controlled).

Incredible setlist -- still a great concert, 9 years later.

This was the year things changed...The Everyday songs came out and then they did the stadium thing again, and the crowd was completely out of control. It was unlike anything I'd ever seen at a Dave show. Dave actually stopped palying and told everyone to chill out. Unfortunate really. Show was good for an Everyday show.

User: JokerRipper
Review:
The crowd went crazy and stampeded. Which was unfortunate, because Dave had to tell everyone to chill out. The setlist was good, nothing too impressive.

This was my second show,and while it was a good one, it wasnt as great as the first. I was very happy to hear Billies, 41, and Two Step, all of which are great to get the crowd up and dancin! The crowd was unreal..security was a mess. I saw people being trampled an thrown down when hundreds of people rushed forward. Other than that it was a good show. Can't wait for Hershey!

Crowd rushing the stage was scary. Rapunzel was great.

User: livingongreyst
Review:
Not one of their best. Good tunes all, but maybe it was the foul taste of "Everyday" that was souring things for me. I enjoyed it still, but there was something missing from the crowd that night. Maybe it was my section, but all i heard was "my stocks haven't been doing well" or "my 401k is..." well, whatever. The people around my friend and i were business folks who couldn't stop talking about their assets. Good Christ, can't people just enjoy music?? But anyway, the boys played well. Not very energetic as i remember, but still, a good night.

Eh, Love dave, hate that stadium though for concerts. Our seats were in a bad spot had to stand in another area getting harrassed by security.

The music selection was just okay. There were only a few old tunes. The security was ridiculous and people were pushing near the stage (where i happened to be). So the overall experience was just okay

great!!! security had some problems which dave wasn't too happy with. a fight broke out in the crowd but dave calmed them down while by singing a made up verse. after that commotion the concert was awesome. great two step!!!

This was my first DMB show ever. And what a damn fine show it was! The only problem for me was that I was a budding DMB fan and I didn't know a lot of the songs. The only real ones I remembered were what I've heard on the radio. When I look back on it now I'm a bit dissapointed because he played songs that I'm convinced I'll never hear again (Big Eyed Fish, Captain, True Reflections). I heard some disorder going on with the crowd on the floor, but overall it was energetic (perhaps too). Still one of the greatest shows ever. It's a special feeling when you have 10000+ people singing in unison "Eat drink and be merry".
