Really fun show that would've been classic if they would have played Halloween! It was a good setlist and very diverse as well. Very good show!

good show, but it got a little too slow @ the end... very similar to the 12/20 show i thought.

tonight i lost my dave virginity.. thank you for the experience DMB and to everyone else there... though i was insanely teased with HALLOWEEN and LITTLE THING...thanks for the Christmas song though! :) many more shows to come

Amazing! They performed Two Step great. So Much to Say led into Too Much which were both very good. Butch Taylor's solo on Two Step was great.

The best seats I've ever had at a DMB show!

simply amazing. it was the second best show i have been to behind 8/3 until i downloaded the show. i am blown away. granny was so awesome and unexpected, its such a great song. the version of the stone was fucking awesome and better then the first time i saw it. pig is the most underrated song and those of you who dont know it or like it, listen to it you will be impressed. i could not believe i heard it live. warehouse was so fucking cool. i could not believe i heard all of these songs i have not heard before. one sweet world was another one, amazing! the show could have done without i did it and where are you going but it gave sometime to sit and pack bowls. all of the other songs more than made up for it though. i also would have rather had another encore like ants since that was the third time i have heard what you are this year. i left during it which sucked but at least i didnt have a problem with traffic. i still have not seen ants which is weird. overall this is another great show put out by dmb, and its probably the most underrated show this year. it was the first show my gf has been to and she was blown away. if you download this show you will not be dissapointed. i still have the chills from it. thanks to the greatest band for another amazing night. peace

This was my first dave show, i basically liked all the songs that he played, it will never add up to the rochester and msg shows, but overall it was a really good show. dave and boyd and leroi and stefan and carter all rock! they are all great musicians and any other concert i've been to, doesn't add up to this one!!!!!! can't wait for the 2003 tour if there is one!!!!

un freakin real...started w/ granny and that set the tone for the whole night...AWESOME is the only way to explain that show

My first ever Dave concert! I had always liked Dave's music but could never get to a show befote now. I was blown away! Some seasoned fans may say it wasn't one of his best performances, but it's always going to be one of the ebst concerts I have ever been to. I can't wait until the next oppertunity I have to see the band! You can thank my cousin Matty for Two Step, that was him and his friend with the signs!

This was the closest I'd ever been to the stage. I was third row center, just slightly to Dave's right.

User: dmbfanman11
Review:
This was a good show, but I think I prefer SPAC as a venue. The set list was pretty good, but I wasn't blown away. What You Are made a great finish to the night.

Bought the tickects an hour after they went on sale. Was as far from the stage as it gets, oh well. Good energy everywhere but in my section, but i was on my feet with a few friends. Good setlist, I was very pleased. Loved Dave breaking it down with his dance, badass. Jammed out Jimi Thing was great. Christmas song gave me chills. Honestly the best version of What You Are I have ever heard, must say I was quite impressed.

A little lacking in energy, (no DDTW, watchtower, or ants mabey a part of that,) but there is no such thing as a bad dave show

An amazing show! The setlist was terrefic! Dave's voice was of a bit, again. It was much better than last night and worth the trip.

User: greystreetpfunk
Review:
pretty good show. best part was the bands energy. Encore: christmas song is nice, but what you are has to stop. Two step, sweet. Granny awesome. Jimi thing, kick ass and SMTS->ASTB->Two Much was f'n ridiculous with dave's dancing. Now when is halloween going to be all out!

User: halloween21
Review:
Great show. Best one Ive seen to this date. Had seats behind the stage but managed to in front in someones seats. Thank god they didn't show up that night. My friend and I kept watching the aisle for people to make sure we weren't in there seats. It was cool because it was my friends first dmb show and to watch the excitement of him was cool. Thats what dmb can do. Highlights were granny, pig, the stone, warehouse, jimi thing, smts-astb-tm, christmas song, and then wya.

User: heygoat49

wow, great setlist, good variation, amazing energy from the band, wish i could say the same for the crowd. overall, i'd say it was a 8.5 outta 10

at the night before in rochester and what a amzing night that was. walking into this show thinking how are they gonna match that. They did. what an amazing night i think even better than rochester just what a mix of toons starting soft and ending in a blast loving wings was jammin carter is a god. ending the night off with seeing carter and dave on there bus's and seeing boyd point directly at me when i pointed at him. one word for this show AMAZING!

One of the best DMB shows I've seen. Tons of energy, great setlist, good sound, and cool crowd. Song highlights were the Granny opener; Grey Street; WTWE; Stone; IDI; GIG; Warehouse; Jimi; OSW (complete with the old intro!); SMTS>ASTB>TM run; Halloween tease(!); Two Step; and Christmas Song. I honestly can't categorize anything as a low point in this show. It was solid.

This was an awesome show. 1st time seeing Jimi Thing in concert and they jammed it. Although this is my 3rd pepsi concert and was expecting A Christmas Song in the encore (and got it now all 3 times) it was still great. Ranked probably 3rd out of my 6 concerts I've been to.

This was crazy. I drove 3 1/2 hours down from Burlington Vermont, and then had to drive back. I got lost on my way in and parking was a nightmare in the parking garage. I parked the car and sprinted out just as Dave was walking on stage. The show was memorable with the Halloween teases and Christmas song. Warehouse was great. Aside from that I don't remember too much, except a bittersweet feeling of leaving my girl to go study abroad in New Zealand right after Christmas. I'd bought her a ticket but she couldn't make it. I also questioned if my loyalties to DMB were too overboard what with driving 7 hours in a single night to see a show that didn't quite live up to my ideals. Still, quite a good way to close out 2002 and that chapter of my life.

Great show. The best of the two i've seen (Darien '02). Lots of energy from Dave, supprising considering the concert the night before. Great setlist. Grace>Warehouse>Jimmi Thing was amazing. Christmas Song solo exceeded my expectations <-great respect from crowd. Second time i've heard wya as closer, would have rather heard watchtower as closer, but the odds of warehouse/watchtower are pretty slim or non-existant

What an awesome show. I had the luck of being 3rd row. The energy when they came out was incredible & Granny was an awesome openner. The highlight of the night was definitely SMTS - ASTB - TM with Dave's dance inbetween. Overall, a great show.
