This was my first DMB show ever, and it began my love affair with seeing the boys get down live! Its been almost 7 years since this night so alot of it is cloudy in my mind as far as the set list goes. But the excitment I had while being in that crowd will never be forgotten......and since have done my best to continue to dance withen the fire!

Not one of my fave shows, venue sucked, my wife almost got crushed by the crowd. Looking back though, 1998 shows as a whole were musically some of the best imo. It marked the end of me doing lawn and GA

First Show Ever!

OMG! Easily the best show I'd seen up to that point. This was teh summer of BTCS and when I knew I was completely hooked on DMB (but too poor to go to more than one show). This shwo was absoutely awesome despite the flat field and the lousy Old Milwaukee drafts they were selleing. If I could get ahold of this show, I don't know if I'd ever leave the house again.

This is probably one of my favorite shows of all time. It WAS hot, but I remember everyone sharing water, security handing out water, and it just being a great show.

The fact that he played 25 minutes from my house still blows my mind. My best friend worked for the radio station that hosted him so she got to meet him and I still have those pictures framed. It was a crazy night but I loved every second and the setlist was awesome...hello look at it!

Wow, Dave was really drunk!! They don't have shows like this one anymore, general admission and all. One of the best setlists I have ever seen.

this was my very first dmb show and it was very good. I don't remember hearing much of the songs now that at look at the set list, but I think it is because I had virgin ears to many dmb songs. the crowd was very excited and I remember that my girlfriend at the time and I were able to move very far up to the front. if I could relive the show i definitely would because I would know all the words to every song and see how different the band played back then. ~otto

I was there but I hated this show, it was a crappy venue and the first show that I went to that seemed........ well the crowd really sucked. It wasn't the people I was used to seeing at DMB shows.
