WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Haven't been to such a good concert since, (boohoo) my last Dead show...INCREDIBLE! I expected a good time, but this BLEW ME AWAY! My first DMB show..got to hear #41, Dancing Nancies, Two Step....and seems to be the opinion of many that this is one of the best shows they've seen...couldn't have asked for more!!!

1st DMB show. BLEW ME AWAY! Fan forever!

By far the best show I've seen since I started going to DMB concerts in 1998. The crowd wasn't really into it but I think since it was 9/11 Dave and the guys really wanted to make this evening of music a tribute to what happened two years ago. Amazing energy, set list, and every song they jammed out perfectly. Dave's talk over the beginning of Everyday, hearing Nancies live, and his insane scat which closed out Jimi Thing were definintely highlights. I just wish the Hershey crowd would get into it a bit more but overall a wonderful experience.

Great show, got there early, tailgated for a few. Was shocked to find people irritated by our playing of loud Dave from our car, but hey, I guess not everyone's really a fan at the shows. We had 23rd row, we could see him pretty well. Seek Up was a perfect opener and was played excellently. Granny, another personal favorite was short and sweet with a lot of emphasis and you could easily tell it was going to be a memorable show. #41 was perfect, and I have a feeling my brother and I started the "honey, honey" in our area in the transitions during everyday. The Everyday commentary was absolutely perfectly fitting and I thought displayed a great message to those mindlessly chanting USA in the surrounding crowd. However, the star spangled banner was played later after the message to show us just how thoughtful Dave can truly be. Two Step had an intro which I hadn't heard before, which I guess is sort of typical, but I found it to be great at the time. What a great concert this one was. Everyday is so moving that hearing it on recording can sometimes still bring a tear to my eye.

Good show for Sept 11th, I really liked seek up as the opener, cry freedom was great, and the steffan bass solo for the spar spangled banner was awesome as an intro into watchtower, would have liked to seen some more spooky songs for the occassion, but overall a good show, crowd was kind of beat except in the field.

This was an awesome show! We sat in Sec. C, near the front, but a bit too the side, so we walked around a lot. The seats, which were plastic, folding, and string-tabbed together were aweful! But hey, who sat? We danced the whole time! Stefan's rendition of SSB will stay in my memory forever. It was the coolest tribute the the events of 9-11. Very moving! The lighting at this show was the best I've ever seen.

This was the best dmb show I've been to. Beginning with a 20 minute version of seek up, and including granny, nancies into warehouse, crush, cry freedom, and an incredible watchtower set closer, the entire night was great. The guys appeared to be having a great time, and the night was very patriotic in feeling.

Dave Matthews isn't a frequent talker at his shows, (and if he does, it's usually quite difficult to understand). However, he echoed some very wonderful and profound words in honor of 9/11. Attending the concert was a cathartic way of living life in tribute and Dave and Stefan's Star Spangled Banner intro to Watchtower was a very special way to spend an evening.

The best show I have ever seen. Over 6/11 and 12/21. Every song was perfectly placed and they sounded so good tonight. They were on at every point and really into it. It was something special for 9/11. Dave rapped for 2 minutes at the end of Jimi and stefan did star spangled banner and the crowd sand to it before watchtower. can you say seek up opener. It was just a perfect set. and a long show to because of how much jamming they did. Only low point was where are you going but it was a perfect break. good times!!!

all i can say is wow...this show was unfreakin believable. My friend tony called the openner...seek up, and i couldn't believe it. They jammed the whole night and jammed well. We moved from Section D to Section A and ended up in section B, row 15. This is about one of the best setlists i've heard. i was a little disapointed in the one song encore (was hopin for billies) but what can you do. Played my favorite song...#41. the whole dam show was awesome. seek up, crush, nancies...got things going, jimi thing...the best i've ever heard...the scat kicked @ss, everyday w/ salute, warehouse, grey street, incredible granny, rhyme and reason, and of course the steffan star spangle banner intro into watchtower. you just either had to be there or hear it for yourself to understand how awesome this show was. i would have to say this show is in the top 10 i've been to. Oh yeah, and at the end of the show, i was in the isle, section b row 4, carter threw is drum stick...and stupid me goes up with one hand to grab it (instead of two) and it hits my hand and bounces off...i'm so stupid, i should have carters drum stick right now...haha, it was a crazy, jammin night. again...wow

I was so fucked up beyond recognition that this was the best dave show that i have ever been to in my life. When he opened up with Seek Up for 15 minutes i was in heaven. Stefan did an awesome job with the Star Spangle Banner and well All Along the Watchtower is always great. The best song would have to have been Jimi Thing.

User: don1214
Review:
Best of the 11 I've seen. Do yourself a favor and check out Jimi Thing. The scat at the end of this one is amazing! Dave's words are truly touching before "Everyday" and Stefan's "Star-Spangled" tribute connected the crowd in a way I haven't often experienced at a show. A must-have addition to any collection.

I have only been to about ten shows but this show was the best I have ever seen. I flew from Phx. Az. to be with my best friend and we drove to Hershey from Philly and it was worth every cent. I absolutely love cry freedom, dancing nancies, #41 and two step is my all time fav. dmb song. I couldn't have asked for a better show, the star spangled banner do I need to say anything else except for WOW!!!! I was and still am the happy girl...My friend and I sat in the tenth row, the rest of the crowd was somewhat weak but we danced all the way through two step and then all the way through the parking lot...nothing ruined our fun!!That was the best show yet!!!!

User: Fluff
Review:
I thought the show was unbelievable. I loved every minute of it. Imo, the Seek Up jam was awesome yet a lil long. I was out in the parking lot with some friends drinking and we saw Leroi go by on a golf cart and we stopped to talk to him. He was cool as shit. I told him you have to play #41 and he just smiled and bowed. It was awesome. Then they played 41 and I was so excited. The show rocked. Fonzie playing the national anthem just flucking rocked the place. So good. It was my only show and it just so rocked.

Amazing show...really emotional with all long songs. The only thing short was WAYG, but it was a good one. Everything else was either jammed out emotional. Cry Freedom brough tears, Jimi Things scat was the craziest thing I have ever seen dave do, Everyday's intro with the speech about 9/11 was really good as well. Top moment at the Dave show was when the crowd sang the star spangled banner with stephan in the watchtower solo. Dave clapped, Ive never seen him clap before. And because they were playing for so long they had to do a one song encore and still went overtime with Two Step. No WHAT YOU ARE!!! Dancing Nancies-->Warehouse was a dream along with the seek up opener

Fantastic, an almost full moon. This was my second time at Hershey. It is always such a singing crowd. The show was great. Erin and I found a secret path between the venue and the hotel, the walk back was quite and peaceful, like a dream really. The crowd at this venue was so filled with "goodness" and we were all passing it to one another.

The show was amazing. I walked in and heard "Seek Up" opening the show. I could have left after that and been happy. Well that's what I thought until I heard the rest of the show. It was amazing. Every song. At the end of #41 we all started singing Everyday and then the band went into it. At the end of Everyday we all started chanting "Hani Hani" and Dave joined in. It was SWEET!!!! I wish i could relive that show over and over. It was probably the best I've been to.

GREAT SHOW, first time i ever saw watchtower live, amazing. Probably best version i've ever heard of watchtower except from listener supported. The crowd defnitiely could of been a little more into it, i mean come on atleast stand up. Wished there was a 2 song encore, like two step and tripping billies or something, but instead they played an amazing two step for encore. Stefan's solo star spangled banner was awesome, glad everyone sang. Seek Up was an OK opener,it would of been better if it wasnt so long, cuz i know there were probably people in the crowd that were starting to get bored. All in all, watchtower was the highlight of the night.

The more older stuff he played, the more I kept thinking "PLEASE don't ruin it by playing "I DID IT"!!!! That had to be one of the best of the 6 (out of 7)performances I've seen at Hershey! (2000 is close) ALL of my favorite jam songs! (Seek Up #41, Crush, Jimi Thing) and a truly inspirational version of Watchtower! Not to mention the Everyday outro to #41 culminating into Everyday/#36 chants! This is the setlist of the tour!!! The only thing that can be considered a "radio song" was Stay, but it's not that bad...I'm sure that the "casual fans" that were there to hear the hits were TRULY dissappointed! But I don't care!!! Come on back and do it again NEXT year!!!! (but please play Typical Situation this time!)

This was my final DMB concert of the summer, and I thought it was by far the best. With freedom and the feeling of pride in the air because of the events two years before, it seemed like the band brought it all to the stage on this night. With the remarks by Dave and then the Star Spangled Banner intro by Stefan, it truely was a DMB moment that no one in attendance will ever forget. Great set list to play on a great night for a concert.

This is one of the best set lists I have ever heard DMB play live. The band sounded extremely tight & the song selection kept you going up & down all night. The one negative about the evening was the crowd. I have never seen a crowd at a DMB show so not into what was going on. It seemed like half the stands emptied at the end of Set 2 & didn't even stay for the encore. Nobody was singing or dancing - it's too bad because it was a killer show!

This show was UNBELIEVABLE!!!! First of all, Seek Up as an opener, who knew?? Then right into Granny, wow! Stay was pretty standard, crush was cool, Nancies into Warehouse was incredible, Where Are You Going was same old. #41!!!!!! And then right into Everyday with a little bit of #36 mixed in there at the end, KICK ASS!!!!! Then the highlight of the night, JIMI THING!!! That song was done perfectly, and the scat at the end was off the hook!! R&R was standard, same with Grey Street and Cry Freedom, which I am ashamed to say I sat down for (my feet were sore), and the Stefan jamming out and the Star Spangled Banner was ridiculous!! Watchtower, watchtower, watchtower!!! My first time seeing it live and it was everything I expected it to be and more!!! Two Step was bad ass as always, a great encore, I was just kinda bummed that it was the only one, I thought maybe they would go right into ants marching like at Folsom Field from '01, but overall an INCREDIBLE show, my third and by far the best one yet!!

Amazing show. Very powerful. Dave gave a great speech about 9/11. Two Step encore. That was it for me. They could have played the Everyday album for an entire set but if they encore with Two Step I'm lovin' it. Hershey's noise ordinance curfew ruined things again. Was supposed to have What Would You Say and Two Step. But only got Two Step. Nevertheless Great show

This show was awesome. Dave did a little tribute to all the people lost on 9/11, and Stefan's playing the star spangled banner as the intro to watchtower was awesome. Ending with two step was awesome!

Wow, this was my first concert. It was incredible. The whole band sounded awesome. Great setlist also. Stefan's star spangled banner was really cool. Although, there was only one encore song, it was by far the best version of two step i ever heard. It was my first DMB concert, but definitely not my last.

4th year my wife and I have gone to DMB Hershey Park show. This was the very best. We were luckey to sit in E 40 something. Last year we were down front in row c 10 - that was the second best DMB show we have seen. I don't have any concert cd's yet, but a B and P would be really appreciated. Thanks Pete coldplay@fastmail.ca

This was an amazing show on a truly sad date. I actually teared up when Dave spoke about the attacks and the world we live in. Stunning show, one of my favorites. I'm new here but I'm hoping to B&P this show.

Pretty cool show. 2nd show I went to and need to go to more shows! Jimi Thing was cool with the funky blues-like middle jam and Dave's scat was great! Dave seemed pretty annoyed when the crowd kept cheering "USA" during the show. He only did 1 encore too. Probably cause he was annoyed with the "USA" chants. #41 into Everyday was REALLY COOL! Everyday was cool with Dave's tribute speach. He sees things the way they really are. DAVE MATTHEWS FOR PRESIDENT!

I always get pissed off when people say "best show ever," because it is completely unhelpful. That being said, this was my 18th show, I've been going since '96, and it was the best I have ever been to. Seek Up to start and right into Granny. I was happy at that point without them playing another song. Stay with Butch singing the part of the Lovely Ladies. Nancies!!! At that point I almost left because it was already my favorite show. Then we get Crush and Warehouse. I was going crazy. Then comes the best part of the show... an insane Jimi Thing with Dave doing this two minute scat/scream/bug out that was rediculous. The rest of the setlist. All this before we even get #41, Everyday, Cry Freedom, Rhyme and Reason, a sick Warehouse and Two Step. Dave also paid respects to the victims of 9/11 and Stephan played the Star Spangled banner in his intro to Watchtower. Just an absolutely amazing show and one with incredible energy. I thought I was going to pass out I was so hype. Good shit.

This band just keeps raising the bar on this tour. Every show I see is a new all time best. It seems as though killing a bottle of Jack and burning a bag of the good shit has become a tradition for me and my friends at these shows. While waiting in line to get in the crowd behind me all cheered me on to chug the end of the bottle and roared when I finished it, I hurled it into the crowd and walked in. I knew right there that this was going to be a great night. Then, SEEK UP as an opener, wow! Followed by Granny, Stay, and Crush, damn! Two Step was a great encore. Three different parts of this night made it the best I've seen. First, #41>Everyday with Dave commenting on the significance of this day. 2nd, Cry Freedom, I was overwhelmed by the emotions I was feeling during this song. 3rd, Star Spangled Banner>Watchtower. All the fans sang along during the Star Spangled Banner. An all-american night at the Sweetest place on earth. I will never forget this night, or the times I've had on this tour. Just great, I'll see everyone here next year.

All I can say is....wow. This was my 2nd DMB show, but it was by far the best show out of EVERY SINGLE show I have ever seen by any band. It was just magnificent. Seek up as an opener was what I was least expecting, and it was beautiful. I knew as soon as Dave started singing that he was on that night. Every song was one that I was dying to hear; Seek up, Crush, Granny, Dancing Nancies-->Warehouse, Stay! Everything was sooooooo perfect. I got to hear #41, which was beautiful. Jimithing was spectacular! Dave's scat was insane! Watchtower was sick! And it was my first time hearing Two Step live. I just had one hell of an amazing evening. I came home with the biggest smile on my face, and it stayed there for about a week.

One of the best shows of the tour. Sound sucked, but the setlist was awesome and energy was through the roof. Also sat about 12 rows from the stage. A little Davespeak before everyday was a great moment. One song encore, but they jammed out the set so much. What else can you say about a Seek Up opener. When I heard the opening chords being played, I was in shock.

This was a great show. I've been to 15 DMB shows and this definetely ranked in the top 5. It was a great set list. Having Steffan play the Star Spangled Banner on 9/11 was unspeakable. The performance of Two Step was second only to the the "thunderstorm version" I saw at Giants Stadium.

this show was sick!!! best show ive been to yet.. dave outdid himself tonight..OPENED WITH A 22 MINUTE SEEK UP!! crazy.. granny and stay were right on, which livened up the crowd a bit..great jam during stay..next comes..CRUSH!! who woulda guessed?? great version, leroi did a great job.. then comes the best version of nancies ive ever heard! i could have gone home after this song and been happy, but noo dave goes right into warehouse, just insane.. could have done without WAYG but it was nicely done.. now comes the highlight of the show..# 41--> fucking everyday!!! # 41 is my favorite song, great version lots of jamming..only to have dave start singing everyday while still jamming to the # 41 music!! amazing! dave stops for a moment and makes an appropriate speech for 9/11,whcih got USA chants..memorable.. followed by the best version of jimmy thing ive ever heard! boyd went nuts, only to have dave fucking scat for ten minutes at the end! amazing.. next comes RAR and grey street, both which were pretty standard but great songs none the least..cry freedom was a very tasteful song for the day,with the crowd being very respectful and briging out the lighters.. WATCHTOWER!!! sickest version ive heard yet, with steffan doidng the star spangled banner as an intro! FUCKING NUTS!! great encore- two step... the band went nuts, jamming for a good 20 minutes before the show was over...all an all an UNBELIEVABLE show the band was right on, crowd was good and set list was incredible..could be one of the best ever..THANKS DAVE

the show was absolutely amazing. i think the fact that it was sept 11th helped a little but it was so amazing. he didnt dance as much as i would have liked but his scatting was incredible. the crowd was good for the most part overall making it a really awesome show. "honey, honey. come and dance with me."

This was my first DMB show ever but it most definitely won't be the last!!! From the first note of "Seek Up" til the last note of "Two Step" I was covered with goosbumps. It was a total religious experience for me. I had heard that previous shows at Hershey weren't that great and that the sound sucked, not on this night!!! Also, with it being the 2nd anniversary of 9/11, it was just a special and memorable night for everyone. There was an electric feeling in the air. Plus the huge harvest moon just added to the mood. It just totally ruled!!! I can not wait for my next show!!!

Another great show. Steffan playing the star spangled banner on his bass was great to hear, especially because it was on Sept. 11th two years after the horrible events. It was nice to have a tribute like that. Having seek up, granny, warehouse, and many other classics was awesome.

I have been to several Hershey shows and about 19 other shows and I have to say that this show ranked up there in the top 2 or 3. The setlist was a great mix of favorites without much from Everyday and Busted Stuff. When Stefan busted into the Star Spangled Banner I almost lost it. Great show!!!!!
