My second DMB show, and it was a great one. Went with 3 of my friends to treat myself on my 20th birthday.

I danced so much that I broke a rib. Amazing show eventhough we had to pay 7 bucks for a beer... but they were really big beers.

An amazing show. One of my friends proposed to his girlfriend in the opening of Pig. It was my first dave show and i didnt have enough respect/knowledge to appreciate some of the songs. But i had a great time.

By far this is the best DMB show to date that I have been to. I could literallly feel the energy from the guys it was so intense. Lots of good songs from BTCS and Crash. Dave danced his ass off and interacted with the crowd so much.First time I ever heard Pig live and I think I like it better than the studio version. They kept pulling great songs out and blowing me away with every little jam session. This was the greatest show, I can't say it enough!!

2nd Night. Again, nothing special. I think DMB shows aren't what they used to for me, and I'm starting to notice that at these shows. They would be my 13th and 14th shows. Seats were bad, too.

perhaps my favorite ever

a wonderful night complete with a #41 (everyday outro) followed up by a great say goodbye, what a treat

User: dgengo
Review:
This was my first Dave show and i didnt now much about him. So at the time i thought it was just an average show but since i then i have gone back and looking at the setlist man, what a great show he played songs he doesnt really play anymore

User: djdandmb
Review:
By far my best show. We met Dave, Carter, Boyd, Leroy, and Butch before the show. I got pictures and autographs, and we begged them to play pig. They told us that they most likely wouldn't, and then they opened with it. That concert was heaven.

Fine performance

Amazing show and setlist. This was my first and still to date best Dave show ever.

User: drunkenmonkey
Review:
WOW! Never could I believe that I would see a show like that. I felt like it was '96 and Crash was just being released. #41-->Say Goodbye and a LIOG in the same night. Thank you Carter, Boyd, Roi, Stefan and Dave. Thank you very much

best show I've ever seen, dave ate up that crowd. just an awesome experience,and we set 12th row.

User: FpotusSCB
Review:
Great show. Other than GIG through Fool to Think the energy in this show never let up. Great to hear 41 and LIOG. Rapunzel was a nice surprise in the encore and this Say Goodbye was definitely one step above 8-2, but both were solid.

User: Granny's Boy
Review:
Energy. That's it, just pure energy. (Oh, yeah, Boyd's and Butch's solos during Lie In Our Graves were sick.)

User: GreyStreetAve
Review:
damn good. Say goodbye was the highlight as well as SMTS-->ASTB-->Too Much

I was sitting in my normal seats when a DMB staffer came up and gave us the Warehouse ticket upgrade to 10th row center.

This was my very first dmb show. Now, looking back, I have to say that this was probably one of the best shows ive been to but I did not realize it at the time. I was still rather a dave-virgin and I did not even know (let alone appreciate) some of his more rare songs like pig and what you are. Highlights of the evening for me was the almost 20 minute long LIOG and absolutely amazing #41 into everyday. Even though rapunzel was more of a different encore, it almost made the show! This show was a great way to pop my dave cherry!

This was Joe's present. I paid waaaaaay too much for the tickets on ebay, but ended up selling them anyway because Danielle got us Boyd tickets and.......... BACKSTAGE PASSES. The concert was awesome, we were like 17th row or something like that. It was the first time I heard Has Anyone Seen the Bridge and I wanted it SOOOOOOO bad. I think I jumped about 10 feet in the air when I realized he was playing it. I definitely cried. Oh man it was soooo good. The setlist was great anyways. Then... we went backstage and Boyd ate one of Danielle's Blow Pops and I was in awe. THEN, they told us it was time to leave and a few people left.. but some girl who had been following since Texas with a Little Thing (man I would give my right arm to hear that) sign,who had a backstage pass, motioned to Dave's bodyguard or Dave or something and Dave came out, even though he NEVER does. We were so lucky and I couldn't close my mouth. Then Steve told him he was "a true American hero." What the fuck Steve???? It didn't matter. All I did was drool the whole time... seriously, all I could do was stare and try not to cry. It was PATHETIC. I met Danielle that day which was also great. Because she is such an awesome girl. This was my last concert for a while... but definitely one of the best nights of my life. Um... actually THE best. -kt

$20 for a ticket?! who could pass that up?!

User: LittleBaby928

gotta love dave on beautiful summer nights!

User: lzldmb
Review:
Great opening song. Pig is definitely one of my favorites. On a night like that night, with an outside venue and a very warm, starry night, One Sweet World and #41 were superb. However, I went crazy when they started playing Say Goodbye- what a perfect atmosphere so such a sweet love song. DMB did a great job at making it be two completely separate concerts although it was back-to-back and in the same venue. Go Dave.

Great venue to see DMB play. Was fortunate enough to be that close.

50 other reviews have pretty much summed it all up. Hadn't been to a DMB concert in a few years, awesome set, awesome show, Dave "dancing" all over the place was classic. Second time I've seen Pig live, something about Columbus and Pig I guess. Love that song. Rest of the set was solid too.

Awesome show...the best I've seen

User: tuthillb
Review:
The energy from the crowd was reason enough that this show blew the pants off of last night. The first half of the concert was incredible; Pig opener gets everybody movin, One Sweet World is awesome, 41-->Say Goodbye was something I couldnt have imagined, and SMTS-->ATB-->2Much kept everybody dancing. Lie in Our Graves was well done, but The Stone is definitely better solo, and LW-->WAYG has a ways to go and really killed some energy. KKJ's lyrics are freakin me out (plastic superhero, plastic justice, etc.), and What You Are is the new official best closer in Dave Matthews Band history. The encore was a disappointment because I was praying for Long Black Veil, but Digging a Ditch is really a treat live, and PNP--> Rapunzel is good enough. Overall, had a blast, one of the best Ive been to.

My 5th show. I love, love, loved the setlist. My first Pig. Didn't know Loving Wings at the time but cool that I heard it. Crowd in lawn seemed distracted at times. Sometimes their (the crowd) energy faltered. 15 year old girls on their cell phone and what not.

User: Yeags1014
Review:
This was a great show. They opened with pig, and relitivly rare songs that i usually dont hear at dave shows such as kit kat jam, what you are, and digging a ditch were played. They ended with pantala naga pampa into repunzel. It was an especially exciting, enerjectic night at polaris. One of the better shows i have ever seen.
