Dave Matthews & Friends|
November 7, 2003
TNN Crossroads, Hammerstein Ballroom, New York, NY
I was so damn lucky to be there. One of my friends was working for a cable trade magazine and took me to the show. It was breathtakingly intimate.
Nice - Dave's voice was a little horse, and his words a little off, but a solid collaboration nonetheless.
Emmylou seemed a bit bossey over Dave and wouldn't let him talk to the audience too much. They also had to 1. stop a song because her nails were in the way and got them cut. 2. Played one of her own songs twice because she loved it so much. I liked her only when she did backround for dave.
One long word: oh -my- g-d!!!!!! I was about 5 rows from the stage (there was less then 1000 in the audience). It was amazing, even if Dave lost his voice from having a cold. Performing w/ Emmylou, Trey and Tim was a truly a special showcase.
