I'm still processing the show as of Thursday morning. It definitely had its high points and it definitely had its low points. This is around my 20th show and it ranks somewhere in the middle. I'm not a big fan of Kit Kat Jam but Watchtower was off the hook as well as a few other songs. Dave's scatting, or whatever you call it was sick. I did have one problem and that was the fact that the two girls sitting next to me never stopped talking, 2 hours straight of babbling about their petty little lives. Shut up and listen to the music!! Pretty awesome overall, bring on Shoreline!

GREAT show... and don't forget a great opener... THE ROOTS are fantastic live, not just a rap group but instrumentally talented. My seats weren't great (lawn) but the company was excellent, the weather was beautiful, and DMB brought it down.

Having been to around 14 DMB shows, I have to say I think this was a really special show. I would have to rank it in the top 5. The Jimi Thing jam was unbelievable. Dreaming Tree was nice too. It was definitely a mellow show, but the band felt like they were "on".

The old songs were welcome! Opening with the "Best of Whats Around"... Dave was feelin the love!

Great mellow show! But then again, that was to be expected after the KICK ASS setlist last night in Chula Vista. Too bad I wasn't there for that one. Anyway, this was my fifth DMB show and it probably ranks up there with the Pac Bell Park 2001 show as one of the best. Okay, some really quick comments: I finally got to see "Dreaming Tree" live (a dream come true). I've wanted to hear that song performed for about five years and it was nice to finally see it. *tear* "Pig" was a real treat also. The "Jimi Thing" performance was incredible and the "Watchtower" encore closer blew the roof off the place! (of course, there was no roof...but you know what I mean). The band had great energy tonight. Everyone seemed to be in a great mood, especially Stefan and Dave. Boyd almost lost his beanie on a song and Carter was hysterical. That was a great moment. Anyway, I'm missing the Shoreline shows because those are money nights at restaurants...can't miss those...but then it's on to Vancouver and then the GORGE! See everyone there! P.S. Does anyone know what that tease or intro was early in the setlist? It sounded like it was going to be "Grace is Gone" but it never materialized into that (they did play "GiG" later though). Only Dave and Leroi played on this quick 0:45-1:00 tease thing and I'm wondering what it was. Any help would be appreciated.

This was a rare song night. He played Dreaming Tree and Spoon, two songs I've always wanted to hear live and are very rare to hear! Very energetic set list.

I was at this show. This show was amazing. It was the first show for me and my best friend, who is a big ol' DMB freak just like me. It was seriously one of the best nights of my life (if not the best)...I mean, I got to see my favorite band in the world with my best friend. What more could I ask for? I got to see and hear BOWA, Warehouse, Rhyme & Reason, Watchtower, Digging a Ditch, PNP/Rapunzel (personal fave), Spoon, Pig, Dreaming Tree...I'm still in awe of that night! As for people talking throughout the entire show, I hear you..whoever said it. There were four girls sitting in the row in front of me talking LOUDLY about who was getting married and where they were getting married and WHEN they were getting married. One of them found it necessary to yell, not scream, YELL at the top of her lungs in the middle of quiet songs. I could've done without that. But all in all, I had an incredible time.

This was number 5 in a series of 5 shows I had the privaledge of seeing last summer(2003)! My trusty youngest son companion and I started in Bonner Springs Kansas (KU) and then set out for the West Coast for the shows in my area of the world. We saw both LA shows then went to San Diego, then worked our way up to the Marysville show. Of the 5, this last was the best. Excellent venue! Smallish, with good acoustics. I really don't have much use for a huge arena. Staples in LA the previous year was horrible! My son and I had the privaledge of 14th row on the floor which probably makes all the differance in the experience. We are musicians, and were able to soak and float through the sets from start to encore. I would gladly travel to Marysville again. I would be interested in the venues that the band enjoys as those are probably the kine shows to see.

The only time I've been front row...and no they weren't warehouse seats. It was great to hear the show through stage monitors and hear the band talk to each other...like when Dave got mixed up during PIG and Stephan complimented him on a "good save" after the song...

One word: "Pig", two words: "Pig $ Spoon"! This one was one of my favorite shows. A truly amazing and wonderful setlist. they played with so much energy, by far the best AATWT I had ever heard. Good Warehouse seats. the best I have had.

Despite my girlfriend going in for a route canal the following day, everything about this concert was superb...superb enough to help my girl forget the pain in her jaw for more than two hours and keep her feet, her head and her heart off the ground! We drove from South Lake to see the show, sec 101, 18 rows back, amazing seats! Carter and I were locked in for the duration. Both feeding off one another, pushing that energy back to the 20,000 people behind, who I must say were amazing themselves, you all helped keep me on my feet, and keep the grooooooove of the whole evening flowing. Thanks for a special evening fellow fans, and all of the Dave Matthews Band...Peace out! Ry

Section 2 Row 9....so close, I probably scared the band! Once again the band delivers another unbelievable set to Marysville and leaves it all on stage for us to enjoy! This was the third time i've been blessed to see them at this venue and they have always played a GREAT show. Attended with (and sat with) last years' newbie, (girlfriend) Nina and Warehouse members "DRSouva" "WineCountryBoy" "SurfMunke" and 2 friends of thiers plus, newbies "Rudy" and "Patty". Everybody got a real good buzz on, some more than others, as we rode in "limo" style to the show. I would also like to give an honorable mention to my reg. DMB concert companion, "The Fat-Man", who attended with newbie and his soon to be former-wife, Maria.....anyway, um... A fantastic evening with a light breeze and 90deg. temps. The band played favorites "Rhyme and Reason" and "The Dreaming Tree", AWESOME!...and "KICK-ASS" versions of "Jimi Thing" and "Watchtower"! Thanks to DMB!

One of his more mellower shows. The crowd at Sacramento isn't as responsive as at Shoreline. It's a shame the fans here don't get into it as much as in other places.

Made the flight up there from the night before which was pretty insane, and what do I get rewarded with?? DREAMING TREE baby!! HELL yeah...I was following around DMB with a bunch of my boys, and hit up 10 shows that summer, but they didn't make it up there. Little too hardcore for them. Took my sisters to this show, which was pretty sweet, and it was their first show. Being the younger girls they are, they went nuts during Crash. Funny just watching that, and pretty special that I could give them that opportunity.
