Was definitely worth the wait after Dave postponed. New stuff sounds good. First time in The Garden!!!!

Great show looking back on it, even though night #2 had the better setlist. We got some nice NYC-related Davespeak (including an incredible Two Step intro), STJL, BEF-> Bartender, LLD->Stone, WYA, with the new outro (it'd been the first time i had heard it and i was blown away by it), a 18-minute or so Two Step, and an encore of Grave Digger, and then PNP->Rapunzel...fun show

Great time tonight, okay setlist...Really fun time though, amazing seats...They just seem to be on when they are at MSG, don't know what it is...STJL is awesome, and Two Step left me in awe...Jimi Thing was pretty damn good too...LLD is so sweet...Gravedigger is a pretty good song, but had trouble hearing the lyrics...Hope it grows nicely...Not my favorite closwer but I'll live...Tomorrow is going to be so awesome...

I think this was the one that was postponed from 4/16/2002 because of problems with Dave's vocal cords, correct?

Review:
My first show of the year, and it was lovely to hear Granny, The Stone, and PNP-->Rapunzel. Not to mention the first ever Gravedigger as a full song.

Jane was awesome, Two Step was great, Danced my ass off. Had some very unruly people in our section that kind of brought us down a little bit but what can you do. Gravedigger, I knew would go far, it would eventually earn a Grammy for Dave. Awesome show, The Garden RULES!!!

This was rescheduled after a devastating postponement. I remember getting the text outside the student center.
But great show. First time hearing the #36 Hanis on the outro sung by the crowd. Blew me away. Been singing along ever since.

Very sweet show. First time in MSG, one of the best indoor venues ever. Great set, first time for You never know, also first time Gravedigger was played, and Loving wings was nice, couldn't wait to see it again. Went with dan and Heintz. Great time, couldn't wait till the next day. Went to hotel with heintz and his friends, got super high and then called out of erac, hahahaha. told them I got sick on chinese, and went to the show the next day.......

Setlist wasnt the best, but bands performance was incredible. Everyday very nice opener, You Never know wonderful, Lover Lay Down into The Stone was absolutly amazing, and the debut of Gravedigger was unexpected.

I got a great view of dave sitting in the 1st row of the balcony :) ...all i can say about this one is that grey street is one of the greatest songs ever, and, like always, dave gave us an awesome two step

Gravedigger was special. Especially since towards the end of the show, someone randomly came into our section and walked up to me and my girlfriend and gave us his two tickets. Turns out they were in the 3rd row. It was very random that he specifically chose us rather than any other people around us. Other gems I thoroughly enjoyed hearing were Panta, TSTJL, and Fool to Think. DMB at MSG is always a truely special night.

DMB was at their best this night. The Band was as sharp musically as I have ever heard them. Everything sounded great. They really seem re-energized by the new material. A show stealing Song That Jane Likes, tremendous Two Step (as usual), Jimi Thing & What You Are also. Excellent show. Of note is Dave played an unfinished Gravedigger acoustic and by himself.

an ok set that led up to one of the most electrifying shows at MSG ever....

I finally got to see the band again. I saw them once in '98 back in college and never got the chance to see them since. This show rocked entirely! I went with some friends from work and since I have become such a huge fan, new most of the words to the new songs and was chatting it up with some neighbors. Lots of beer drinking with a straw too! My friend scoped out an are without anyone sitting, so during Two Step, we walked closer and closer to the center (we were upper deck to the left) and the music got louder and much more intense (you know, when Two Step gets to a point where it explodes and erupts!!) As the song was ending, we were now dead center and dancing our sweaty asses off. Highlights of the show, besides the aforementioned experiences were Grey Street (so happy to hear this!), Big Eyed Fish > Bartender (my faves), Lover Lay Down (one of their best), I Did It made me roll my eyes but rocked completely, Everyday and a kickass Rapunzel.

Good show. Good setlist, lots of energy, last old version of Grey Street before the change to new lyrics. Long solo version of Gravedigger.

I was in town for Fleet week(im in the navy) and they released 50 more tickets the day of the show and I got on the floor. I was in my uniform and they were not checking my ticket so i just kept walking up until I got behind the first section and I did not move the whole show. It was a great experience and I will definantly go to MSG again

Finally the show a month later, well worth the wait, lots o' busted stuff

User: ny55525
Review:
I liked the Everyday opener. DMB found a nice groove and the MSG responded BIG time! Grey Street, YNK, Jane, BEF > Bartender were personal hightlights. What You Are was great in the middle of the set. LLD > Stone was sweet-ass. Carter's drums kicked f*ckin ass on Fool to Think. Energetic Two Step and PNP > Rapunzel to close. I knew nite 2 would be even better...

5th show (3rd of tour)
Drove to NYC for original 4-15 date.
Was let down, but my boys made up for it.
Excellent show, probably was too drunk to appreciate it fully.
Found a fan selling single ticket for 5-29,
1st of 2 stellar setlists.
My sister went to this show with me. She met me at the show. Met me at seats a few songs into the show with two beers one for me and one for her. My favorite only sister.

For the most part, an awesome show. Loved the main set, could have lived without Jimi Thing, but no major complaints. Wasn't crazy about Raunzel closer, but on the whole an excellent show. YNK is my favorite song on BS!

MSG is always a great venue, and tonight's show was awesome. Everyday opener was a surprise. Some other highlights were Granny, Grey Street, You Never Know, Song That Jane Likes and What You Are. Dave changed around some stuff in WYA, and really got the crowd into it. LLD into The Stone was pretty cool. The Two Step closer was also nice. In the encore we heard the first "full" Gravedigger followed by PNP and Rapunzel.

Really good show. I was around 15 rows back and it was my first and only so far, so I may be a little biased. Really good energy, awesome two step for 26 minutes. A little to much ED stuff though. Overall and awesome experience

MSG--definetly worth the wait from April...the stone and LLD--absolutely perfect. --I'll tell you now, I don't think its possible for me to give a bad review

rowdy fans made it a miserable experience. two guys almost got in a fight next to me. too many meatheads too close together. however, it was nice to see dmb play everyday in nyc since a tribute to heros. it was my first time hearing gravedigger!!!
