I wasn't that into Dave before the show, and I was going with a friend who was obsessed, well now they are my favorite band, and a lot of it has to do with this show, I was so blown away with the jamming on Rapunzel, and Bartender was truly a treat.

Great to see the first show of the tour, although it made me realize how much better it is to see them outside.

Awesome show, pretty good seats. Drove all the way from Charlote NC to see him. My sister flew down from florida to go to the show with me. We had an awesome time.

Review:
The worse show that I had been at. Seats were horrible, I dropped the warehouse completely after these seats. Long pauses inbetween songs, dave seemd completely out of it.

Didn't really like DDTW as a closer. Not a great show for jams, but good show nonetheless.

crazy seats, got to see carter from above, he IS the man, dave jammed out

User: firedancyr7
Review:
Show was not all that good and I have never said that about a Dave Matthews Concert in my lifetime. I still had a good time but it felt like there was a wall separating the band from the audience.

My second Dave show. Very fun. I actually met my future boyfriend there, when I was 15! I am now 21. Very weird. Was a lot of fun, it was different seeing him inside. Didn't like that MCI doesnt offer tailgating, but we found a way. haha. They were awesome. Heard what I wanted to hear.

First DMB show, he brought pig back..Although it didnt mean the same to me that it would have now

User: JokerRipper
Review:
At the tour opener, I was surprised by a lot of song choices the boys made, even though I found out later that many of them would be played repeatedly in the following weeks. The only downside was to the show, really, was that the encore ended with Don't Drink the Water ... a somewhat non-encore song.

Made it to the tour opener again this year. Can't recall ever seeing DMB indoors prior to this so wasn't sure what the sound would be like. It was great.

Pig, ddtw encore. sick nasty

User: smallasdust
Review:
My roommate and I skipped some of the first week of classes to see this show. The show just kept getting better and better after the first few songs. The runner up for the highlight was probably BEF->Bartender->Grace. Amazing. One of the best Bartenders I've heard live. I was sure this was going to be the best part of the show until we heard the opening notes of PIG for the encore. This is one of my all time favorite DMB songs, and this was the first time I'd heard it live. We had talked about it all the way to DC but didn't expect it to happen. But they played it, it was amazing, and it put an end to the craving I'd had since the first Pig tease at Soldier Field last year. We then topped off a great show with a little side trip down to Charlottesville :)

First show of 2002. It was a great one. I took a ride down to D.C. from Philly. Nice to hear some of the new songs from the upcoming album. I was impressed with the MCI Center, nice little place to see a show.
