Alanis opened the show. The lovely ladies were there, as well. Seats were horrible, and I came all the way from Michigan to see this show. DMB was good, as always, though. First time in Colorado, so my brother and I did some sight seeing while we were there. Fun trip!

Mile High was a poor choice for a venue, the acoustics are lousy.

First DMB show, been hooked ever since. Not a big Alanis Morrisette fan, but enjoyed Big Head Todd & the Monsters opening. Two Step and 41 to open the show was my highlight.

My very first DMB show! I didn't even go to see the band. I went because I wanted to hook up with the chick who took me. Well, needless to say, I don't know where she's at, but I owe her a big thanks for introducing me to the greatest band to ever play instruments! This moment was a life changer!

I originally posted this on nancies.org on July 21, 1999. No edits have been made... this is what I said then and I stand by it. (If you are actually reading this.)


The great thing about this web page has always been that honest comments get posted... so I'll hope that continues with the submission of this review. There won't be a song by song account, but there is going to be more than one paragraph... just because my sentences need to make some sort of sense. So Tuesday night was my 8th time seeing Dave Matthews band and it was the biggest disappointment. It's not that the show was poor - they musicianship was still the best of any band I've ever seen live. And after a perfect 55 minutes, I was very happy. Crash into Me doesn't bother me as a song... really doesn't. But from that moment on, I thought the concert lulled. Big time lull. It didn't find it's way back to a typcial dave show until The Stone and Jimi at the end. Background singers don't make a show bigger. All it does is lose the focus of the song. This was going to be a great show because everybody in the house thought Spoon would be played. It wasn't. Alanis Morrisette stood their and danced during Don' Drink the Water - and when she sang, it sounded more like howling behind Dave than the background vocals she contributed to the album version. At some point and time, the guest and the band need to be a cohesive unit. That didn't happen on Tuesday night. Probably better that they didn't play Spoon. What was most irritating was the fact that Dave Matthews contributed to a story on the DMB and Colorado's role in increasing their popularity seven years ago. But the night's show didn't seem to make Colorado - or the fans in Colorado - feel any sense of being unique. There was no rare songs (unless you include True Reflections and Granny, and I would argue that just because a song isn't on an album doesn't make it rare.) And the encore was fairly short - Granny and Ants just doesn't compare to the four song encores that have been played at other venues across the country. The stadium show atmosphere isn't a bad one. Sure, some things suffer. But video screens and better lights makes it fun in a different way. Unfortunately Tuesday night, it didn't have that fun, Colorado show in a stadium vibe. It's too bad, because DMB fans here have seen, and deserve, better.

My First Show! I was in the nose bleeds, but this sealed the deal for me becoming a die hard fan

I enjoyed this concert, but got really sick at the end and had to leave earlier than I wanted to. It was my first DMB concert, and certainly made me love the band even more.

First DMB show for me. One of the best shows I'm writing this after seeing DMB 5 more times)! Opened with Big Head Todd & the Monsters (teriffic performance) then Alais Morissette (also a good show). DMB opened with "Two Step"! One of my favorite songs and the rest of the line up was great too. Butch Talyor played "Linus and Lucy" and that was cool too.
