I had seen DMB several times before this show. I could not let this show go by. Hueyb (another ant) and myself from Atlantic city went to radio city with tickets in hand, found ours seats and were BLOWN AWAY! nothing like any concert I have ever been to. The rollercoaster of musical energy could be felt in the skin. I paid an enormous amount of money for the tickets and after I would have paid double. P.S. after the first song I'm the ant that screams " We love you dave " I and I proceeded to get several responces from dave about me to the rest of the crowd....... that alone was worth the price of admission!

One of the most memorable D and T shows I've ever experienced, the crowd was amazing and Dave was awestruck

First Acoustic. Packed house kind of Rowdy would not let the man speak. Tim was just sick when he played acoustic. Its a shame so many people leave and take a break when he plays. What an amazing musician. Extreamly talented and out of this world. BRAVO.

Incredible show! I was a little worried about the New York crowd, but it was great. There were the usual drunks screaming between songs, but not a peep during the songs, even in the really quiet parts. I've seen tons of DMB show, but this is the only time I've seen just Dave and Tim, and it was totally worth the 6 hour drive!

Lucked out with some 9th row lottery tix. Can't beat a Dave and Tim show in NY. I flew from AZ to NY for it and had an amazing time. I even got "Two Step!"

Setlist speaks for itself........great show, great venue, and probably what will be thought of as the best crowd of the tour.......

This was my second time seeing Dave & Timmy on tour...my first was at SUNY Buffalo in '99. I thought that this show was amazing...my favorite song of the show was Dancing Nancies. The crowd definately could've been better...there were a lot of rude people surrounding me.

This was my first D+T show. I had an awesome time. The show was great, and the accoustics in RC were wonderful. The crowd for the most part was ok, although there were isolated cases of people being assholes. All in all, it was an incredible experience. Highlights include I'll Back You Up, The Stone, Lie in our Graves and Pay For What You Get.

Acoustics were the best ever, even in the galleries. Never a "lull"

"What's up?"... Those of you sitting in Orchestra section 500, near row J know exactly what I mean.

What an awesome show. In all, nothing really that spectacular, but just being at Radio City, with Dave and Tim at that time was the only place to be. What an amazing acoustic evening. No full 'Fool To Think' which had turned incredible since it's acoustic debut, but I thoroughly enjoyed the IBYU/Nancies encore that blew me away. Gunsmoke!

Very very nice show. Nice and intimate. Played a very nice set with a lot of variety. Tim was amazing as usual. The fact that he played I'll Back You Up just made my night. Was not big on the crowd though...kind of rude.

Good show by Dave and Timmy but was very disappointed by the fans sitting behind me. They showed no respect for the talent. But we made the best of it anyway.

User: Devon
Review:
Well, the show would've been good with the music, if it hadn't been for the disruptive groups of loud, nasty, so called fans. What a disruptive group. I couldn't stand having someone in the seat next to be jumping up and down, dancing in his seat, screaming at Dave and Tim. The this guy went into the isle and started dancing. Nobody said anything to him, but I could here people saying, "won't this idiot sit down." Also, during every song, he would lean over to his girlfriend and yell, "Hey, let me tell you what this song is about!!!!" Spending half the song talking yelling about it. Hey pal, if you're out there, you're not a true Dave and Tim fan. You're a disruptive a-hole.

Great show, this was my first D&T show, and boy did it not disappoint. The only bad thing was the woman behind me who wouldn't shut her mouth. All in all, probably the greatest show I have ever been too.

User: dmb4life2000
Review:
Bartender was a good opening song for the show. The highligts of the show were Two step, Jimi thing, Pay for what you get and I'll Back you up. Dave told us so many funny stories. The best as his gunpowder thing. Also his exit sign story. This was a night I will never forget in a long time.

I'm SO thrilled that I ended up getting tickets (and good orchestra tickets too!) off the RCMH waiting list because this was an unbelievable show. I've never experienced a show like this before & it was just amazing. The atmosphere was great. It was just so relaxed & chill. Even though RCMH isn't small, for the night, whenever Dave talked, it felt like he was talking right to you. The setlist was terrific & the music sounded great. Tim's guitar solo's were AWESOME. When I got home & people asked me how the show was I tried to put it into words, but all I could say was "It was just... it was unbelievably amazing, I mean it was just... wow..."

My first D+T, killer show, pulled out Captain which they hadn't played before, as well as the first Two Step of the tour.

A great show, though Tim didn't play with much heart; though he played well, he seemed disengaged a lot of the time. I was glad to hear Pay for What you Get, one of my favorites. Great crowd! Respectful! They sat down & kept intrusive behavior to a minimum.

This was one of the most amazing shows I have ever been to. It was intimate and for the most part the audience was relatively quiet so you really heard and felt the music. It was also so poignant because it was right after President Bush declared war and to me the show meant a lot.

Review:
SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICK!!!!! What an amazing show. Dave & Tim played for quite a long time...3 hours. Great setlist, Big-Eyed Fish and Grey Street sound amazing acoustic. Don't Drink the Water & Cry Freedom were two of the highlights of the evening, also very nice to hear I'll Back You Up. Lots of emotion in Dancing Nancies!

My first D+T show and I could not have asked for more. The crowd was electrifying at times but respectful over all. I was a bit irritated by the mass exodus on the second tim solo. Makes me upset to know that there were so many more deserving fans that could have had those seats. My fav part had to be everyday with the #34 tease. everyone singing "Honey.....", while dave was singing everyday was just a great moment.

Amazing. Phenom. The atmosphere was so surreal being in RCMH with plush red carpets and seats and to have Dave and Tim up on stage, jamming away. Just incredible. A once in a lifetime opportunity.

Amazing show tonight, it was great to hear classics like pay for what you get, cry freedom and i'll back you up. Also, awesome version of ants. Highlights include cool intro to don't drink dealing with the war and one of the best don't you ever wonder intro's i've ever heard. Tim ripped it on LIOG and Two step and his second solo was so nuts that he got a standing ovation. Lots of Davespeak, from the power move to the classic shrug. Nite ya'll

Similar set as URI but who cares....D+T(honestly if I could have afforded it I woulda gone to all them) Great encore...nice and chill IBYU then Nancies...can't wait to see em' in 05' or 06' cross fingers!!!! Least crowds are getting better than 99'

User: nycarolina

The set was amazing including many tunes that stick with me today. This was my first D&T show and Karma was at an all time high. My upper balcony seat became an orchestra seat 10 rows back when a long time fan wanted to sit next to his girlfriend who had the seat next to me (I was a solo). EX*IT had always given a smile - it was good to share.

AMAZING! Was at the Oakdale last week and that was great, but Radio City show was unreal...set list was awesome, and loved hearing Captain. Gravedigger is quickly becoming a favorite!

D&T + March 22, 2003 = GREAT F*CKING SHOW. This was my 8th overall Dave Matthews show (1st D&T though). In all 7 previous concerts I have died to hear one song live. Did Dave make put an end to this spell this time around???? NOPE I did not hear SEEK UP. But I did get to hear Gravedigger. the crowd was intense but calm except for one guy up in the top. What really pissed me off was when Dave gets off the stage and leaves Tim there to do a solo, thats when everybody goes to the bathroom or call someone or do something else other then watch probabely the greatest guitarist of our time perform. His solos blew me away. All though I would have killed to have heard stream the other solo's where just as bad (in the good sence of course). Also, this might seem a little odd but to me i thought it was different to see Dave wearing Jean. The shows i went to he wore kahki's for the most part. Also Dave mentioned that he believes this was the first time he and Tim have played in NYC, but I think he forgot about Beacon (2/2/99). But overall it was a great show.

That was my first Dave and Tim show and it couldnot have been better. Gravedigger was soo incredible. The setlist was great...I'll Back You Up was so sweet and Tims solos were amazing. But after seeing Dave and Tim, I can definitely say I like the Band better.

This was an incredible show. RCMH is just a great hall in general, so that was the first plus. The setlist was amazing, I'll Back You Up literally brought me to tears. The crowd was extremely rude in my area, they actually removed some people. But an amazing time, no doubt about it. A perfect 6 year anniversary gift from my fiancee.

I've seen DMB over 50 times, but never D&T. This was an incredible experience for a true fan. Listening to all my old D&T shows from a few years back, I thought I was ready, but I wasn't, totally blown away. The sickest thing I've ever seen.

Amazing to see D+T at radio city music hall. This show should have been made into the cd and DVD, not the 2007 show.
