Not a bad show, I would rate maybe around a 6 or 7. Quick Basic review. Crowd was great. Pig and Grey St.- very good. Great Halloween Tease. Great to hear Nancies-Warehouse. Sleep to Dream Her...surprise to say the least. X-mas song- awesome, everyone was singing in the whole arena, low enough for a light whisper, but loud enough for you to know that everyone there actually knew the song. We sat in a great section, lots of Warehouse Members. Good gang for some Dave talk. Everyday to finish- good and solid, really fit with Dave's speak about Iraq and stuff before Xmas song. Crowd sang #36 then ended with #36, pretty cool. Couldnt expect much more. Looking forward to Chicago, Univ Ill and "The Last Stop"!!!!

Amazing time...Dave was on and tearing shit up...His feet didn't stop going crazy all night..Some people were complaining about the setlist, but I really don't know why...been waiting for Nancies for so long...Finally got it...Busted Stuff songs were awesome tonight...especially Grey Street...Crush was the perfect opener...I called Christmas Song and Everyday during the Encore so I'm proud of that...One the best shows I've been to, even though most don't agree and the Atlanta fans aren't the greatest...

Hands down the single most amazing DMB show I have ever seen. Fifth show and the first time I heard Watchtower. Didn't think it deserved to be played anywhere other than to close the encore however. We had great seats and Philips Arena is definetely the best large venue to see a concert in Atlanta.

My First Dave Matthews Band Show. I have always wanted to go but i finally made it to this one. This was my 18th birthday present from my parents and one i will never ever forget. Oh yea a little bonus, at midnight of the show it was my birthday. So i got to see dave matthews band play for the first time on my birthday. Amazing and i've been addicted ever since.

This is the best dave show I have ever seen. They opened with Crush, which was amazing. They also played the best version of watchtower I've ever heard.

Wow, this show was awesome. They energy of the band on stage was incredible. Great set list, great everything. Several people that I've talked to say that it was one of the best shows they have seen, and I have to agree.

Awesome Awesome Awesome show. He played songs he hasn't done in awhile. Loved the opening act. I loved that he did the Christmas Song. It was so cool to see him do a live set by himself. Ended with Everyday!It rocked. Cannot wait for next tour!

This was an amazing show and among my favorites. The boys were really into the set and played a jaw dropping Nancies>Warehouse>Watchtower and Dave totally went off on Watchtower. The ONLY negative of this show was the Everyday closer, but it was still awesome.

This show was amazing. Dave really let it go and did is darling little dance during wwys and really belted it out on Bartender. To make a great night perfect he ended with a christmas song and gave me chills. I was almost moved to tears!

User: frink82
Review:
Solid Setlist. Band sounded great. New carter solo outro to Loving Wings that prohibits a segue in Where Are You Going. Stefan gave a little Halloween tease after Crush. Great show overall.

I was at the last DMB in ATL during the Summer, and all I can say is I thought that one was awesome then, but this one blew it away. Its CRAZY how great this show was. I don't think I could have asked for any better songs to be played

The best show i've been too. The first one inside since the MTV special at the tabernacle, so all around it had a very special feel to it. Setlist was immaculate, GS, Pig, Sleep to dream her, and chritmas song, what else can you say.

User: happyrishi

Awesome show. He was on totally 100%. Great set list.

My first show in Philips and the acoustics were excellent...and the show was better than that. Further restores my belief that Dave and the boys love playing in Atlanta.

WHOO! My first show (I'm still young!) and it was a GREAT one! I'm gonna be one of the first to get this one! The opener - crush - was amazing! You'd never expect it! Its silent, and you hear the first bass riff... everyone goes crazy! EXCELENT! Classics like So Much to Say were AWESOME and Too Much, and Watchtower stole the show! Grey Street was aight, there was nothing special about it. It was the same way as it was on the album. Carter's drums solos were phenominal! The only thing that made the show recieve an A- instead of an A+ was that the last song they chose as the encore wasn't what anyone expected. The first song forthe encore (Christmas Song) was fantastic! Unfortunately, they started playing Everyday which was not a good song to end with at all. Some people walked out dull and dissapointed because of the last song (I was hoping it would be Pig, but they played it in the actual setlist anyway), but most of the people busted out the arena with grins on their faces and high as a dog! It was a GREAT show overall!

As my first DMB show, I didn't know a lot of the songs. However, it was this show that got me completely hooked. If only I'd known half of the songs then... wow. We all gotta start somewhere, though.

great show, with awesome so much to say --> too much. also incredible dancing nancies jam --> warehouse. christmas song and everyday for encore.

User: jeffrey
Review:
Excellent Show, looking at the setlist it doesn't seem to marvolous, but the band was really into it (mainly Stefan and Carter). As an intro to Watchtower Stefan played an amazing Bass solo. This was my second show so this time I was able to recognize all of the songs.

User: jeffro898

WHAT A SHOW!! Crush as an opener!,I called this one right before they came on stage. WWYS was a shocker, followed by a sold Grey St. GIG was outrealand a good Bartender-Dont burn the pig was sweet. Nancies/warehouse/watchtower was my favorite trio of the night. nice little chat from dave before christmas song. i knew everyday was coming, although i wanted a two step or trippin billies. overall, one heck of a show!

We got up really early to hop a flight to Atlanta, then spent the day hanging out (sobering up) before the show. Compared to the previous night in St. Pete, this show was pretty mellow. We needed mellow, though, after our drunken wall diving the night before. Highlights were Pig and Sleep to Dream Her, but it was such a special treat to hear Christmas Song. The Davespeak about the impending war in Iraq was interesting. Thanks to all the nice people around us - especially the man to my left who came to the show alone while his wife and daughter watched the setlist pop up on their computer at home.

This was the best DMB show I have been to yet. I have always wanted to hear watchtower live and Sleep to dream her it was awesome. They were great. It has to be the next live CD

My first Dave concert ever. AMAZING! TRULY AMAZING! I had so much fun! I was in section 310, Row A. When they played Watchtower, the tier literally shook up and down! I can't wait to see them again!

This show was amazing. It was the best DMB show I have attended so far. The set list was awesome and dave was in a really good mood the whole night dancing all around the stage. Crush, Pig, and the Christmas Song were the highlights of the show for me.

User: Morganb80
Review:
Crush as an opener was awesome. Nancies, Warehouse, Watchtower trio was stellar. Pig was the best song of the show for me plus I called it which was cool. Heard a lot of complaints about Everyday as a closer. I must admit if before the show I was told that it would be I would have been disappointed but after the war speech and Christmas Song it fit right in and was great. All in all it was a great show.

the set list was wicked..but i had really bad seats and two drunk girls infront of me that could not dance and really irritated me

User: nick3441
Review:
This was my first Dave show. At the timeI didn't think it was that good. I didn't like that it ended with Everyday and I still don't, but looking back on it over all now that I like DMB a lot more than I used to, it was pretty good show. He played my favorite song, Pig, but at the time the only Dave cd's I owned were UTTAD, Crash, Red Rocks, and luther. So I'd never heard Pig. I think I Give This Show a 7/10.
