Good show for the band. No electric used. I loved the old stuff and the 41 opener was a great surprise. The crowd wasn't into Sugar Will but the rest of the night was great.

Great show, as always. It was better than Stlouis (1st stop on 04 summer tour. I wished they would have opened with Grey Stree or Too Much instead of 41 but what can ya do. It was a great show that seemed a little laid back and mellow (crash, stone, typical, 41, sat, everyday, ect) Hearing The Stone live was great and the ending with Everyday was excellent. Ive always wondered how well Everyday would be for a closer but with #36 mixed in with it i can honestly say it was one of the best closing songs of any DMB concert ive been to.

Heard Sugar Will for first time live and loved #41 to open. though not as good as the 20 minute #41 Jam on my first show ever in 2000

The setlist at this show was amazing. A much better show than Bonner Springs in 2003. Dave lost his voice last year. This years show was pretty rare. I lovede opening up with #41. the stone, everyday, joy ride, hello again, how can you go wrong?

Maybe the best setlist I have seen so far. The band was playing as well as I heard earlier this summer, but the songs make up for it. The crowd was lame. Much better on the East Coast. It's always a good time seeing the band. I can't wait to see them again. Could I have been lost somewhere in Texas?

What can I say about last night's show except DAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNNNNNNNNN!!!! that show BLEW MY MIND! Let me start here, I went into this show only wanting to hear #41. That was my only request for the night. I'm going to the Gorge in a couple weeks, so my expectations for this show weren't too high, because I figured whatever I didn't get to hear here would be made up for in two weeks. Not only do they play #41 but they opened with it and convinced me that they should start doing that a lot more often. I mean it just kicked off the show great. Right at dusk everyone singing along. I was in Section 2, Row M. The seats weren't too bad. A few things were in my direct line of sight, but not so bad that i couldn't enjoy the show. Song after song they just came with it. It seemed like they had been waiting to get back on stage. Especially Dave. He just seemed to be in rare form last night. Very animated and having lots of fun. I've never seen a show like this in KC, usually we get kinda crapped on. I mean last year was pathetic. This year they showed us mad love, and for once, the crowd gave it back ten fold. This will definitely be a classis show to rememeber for me. The last day/night me and my lady of two years spent together and we put it in the right hands. They took care of both of us so well and made us forget that tomorrow we would have to say goodbye for a very long time. They played all of favorite songs to perfection and put so many new twists on the classics. Stellar performance in my opinion. I'm glad I can say I was there in that moment in that place at that time... I will forever cherish this memory. Peace, . . : : G H B : : . .

This show was awsome from the get go #41 was a great song to open with I didn't even expect that. The encore was awsome they put a lot of energy into this concert I was impressed the crowed was into most of the songs accept for a couple of the songs but overall great show Dave.

User: greybart41

Better than last years show in KC IMO. Opened with #41 which was nice. DDTW surprisingly was the first song of the encore. Crowd was just ok.

User: guru33
Review:
My 1st... Seeing is believing. After that show I canít believe that Iíd waited this long to see them. It was truly an awesome experience! Iím trying to figure out how to get out to SF next month for the Golden Gate Park show. I listened to DMB for years, but nothing prepared me for the live experience.

Unbelievable show! Probably my 12th DMB show and I heard countless classics that I'd waited years to hear such as: #41, Typical, Warehosue, Nancies, DDTW, gosh, so many great songs that I had just coincidently missed out on over all the shows. Great night for the band all in all.

This was a graet show, unless you were in the grass seats. The volume throughout was low up untill the encores.

User: jimi_thing81
Review:
This show was awesome! That was one of the best renditions of #41 I have ever heard, opening with that one was definitely a good call! And the crowd was so laid back and mellow, it just made for one of the best shows ever. I like that there wasn't alot of electric guitar in the show, in my opinion it made the music a bit more enjoyable. The only thing I regretted was that Gravedigger and What Would You Say were not on the setlist. Maybe next year!

Took a good friend from KC who had never been to a DMB concert. Think he had a good time. Going to take him again for the 05 concert. Had decent seat to the side - got to love the fansite tickets and having an early number.

upper pavillion row 13, not bad seats, Music was incredible. The opener 41 was all I ever wanted to hear!!!! I can't believe all the warehouse members didn't do their homework prior to going. DMB didn't get proper appreciation for the new songs, sugar will, joy ride, crazy easy, etc. People just kind of stood around not knowing what to think. The boys plain rocked out!!! What a string battle between Boyd and Dave. WOW!!!! Perfect weather, perfect incense, perfect tunes, lame crowd. Traffic Jam was entertaining as usual after the show.

this show was great....#41, Ants, Typical, Nancies -> Warehouse, and DDTW -> Everyday.....just so many highlights and amazing energy from the band!!

Better than the STL show. They have really got the new songs down. Dave could be on a commercial with his missing up "lost somewhere in Texas". Maybe there was another meaning. Good set list! about 10 from the first three albums. Pleased an oldie like me!

Great time! First time seeing the band outside of St. Louis. Glad I finally ventured out! Uncomparable to shows I have seen in STL. KC is much more laid back, more intimate and prettier surroundings! Loved it!
Guess it is true that DMB is not too fond of STL.

User: mking84
Review:
Saw DMB in STL this year and it doesnt even compare. The new songs have grown into something that can only be described as genuine DMB. #41 shocked me and i did "genuinely weap". Satellite was a treat as was Nancies, Satellite, and typical were great to hear. Cant wait for the next tour.

Absolutley amazing show. My 10th and it definitely competes for the best I've seen. I can't believe no one has mentioned how unbelievable Too Much was. It blew my freakin' mind. One of the best versions of any song I've ever heard. Dave scatting and his Lil' John impression was just plain bad ass. The whole band was on fire, especially Dave.

By far, the best DMB performance I've seen. #41 opener was a total surprise and was awesome. I was near the back of section 3 directly in front of Stefan. I hope my heartbeat goes back into a normal rhythm sometime today! Loved seeing only acoustic guitars again.

Awesome!!! I also went to UMB, which was great, but I really enjoyed this show. The #41 opener set the tone for the whole show...awesome! :) Hey to all of the people I met around Section 2 Row L!

First lawn show. Was awesome. Heard Sugar Will. Blew me away. Under the stars and dancing.

User: Snowboardin4311

By far the best DMB show I have ever seen. The set list was off the hook and the band's energy was enough to fill the ampitheater. Joy Ride is going to be HUGE when it goes international! Some members of the crowd, including yours truely and his best friend, threw in the Joy Ride "Woo's" and made the song that much more fun for everyone. All of the new songs are amazing, and #41 was the most stellar event I have ever experienced!! The time/style changes in Typical Situation, Too Much and (I believe) One Sweet World were so utterly superlative, I almost died of the abundance of good feeling. The only thing that could make this show better would be a CD release from the band. Thank you Dave Matthews Band for such an orgasmic concert.

Been a month or so since my last show and I see a big difference in the band. They seem to be hitting their stride. Tons of energy, very good show. 41 as an opener, I mean what else could it be?

AWESOME version of Too Much (and I've never liked this song much!!!)

This was the third DMB show I've attended and it was definitely the best by far. I'm on cloud 9 today because I had such a great time last night. The show was simply awesome!

User: TwoStep1916
Review:
WOW. My first show was AMAZING. #41 opener was sick, good to see Dave's voice do well on it and Sattelite. The Stone was an awsome suprise. Ants intro w/ stefan bass, and the outro were as good as always. sweet full band Typical with an awsome jam in the middle. Grey Steet was great as usual. Crazy-Eazy and Hello Again (sweet Carter Solo) have both become badass classic DMB songs. Where Are You Going was OK. Boyd was sweet in Nancies, and Wherehouse with the 'salsa' ending was great. Crash and One Sweet World were mellow. Sugar Will has gotten soo much better with the Butch and LeRoi solos. Joyride was awsome and Too Much was a damn good closer with the lil' john ending. Don't Drink the Water was ON FIRE. Everyday (36) was accualy pretty good. GREAT show!

Show kicked ass! Only one flaw... I'm pretty sure the concert was in Kansas, did Dave know that? Great set, great crowd for Kansas City

It was my first show. Needless to say, it was awesome, even though I had brochitis. I suffered through and it was worth it! The Stone was my favorite song of the night. I went into the show wanting to here Grey Street and my friend wanted to here Satellite, and we got them both. Dave was in a mood, he was havin\\\' fun. I always have liked Carter, but his drum solo was amazing. I hope next year they have several tour stops close to my area, I am hooked on Dave and the gang. 2/1/16 - Memories from the show Josh and I drove down for the show, missed the opening act, and then watch DMB perform. Josh had to go to school the next morning, so we headed back that night. We ended up getting stuck in the parking lot for an hour or two. While we were sitting in the line of cars to get out, Josh was sleeping with the window down and some girls started throwing Cheese Puffs at him. He feels one hit him, looks down, grabs, eats it and goes back to sleep.

What a show! I loved Typical, Hello Again, Joy Ride and of course Too Much. The band was on fire! Also, the "Forgive Me" in Crash is Classic Dave, what a moment!

A VERY MELLOW SET BUT AN INTERESTING MIX THAT CAN'T BE DENIED. I TOOK A FRIEND TO HER 1ST SHOW AND MADE HER A FAN, TOO BAD SHE MISSED OUT ON DAVE'S CRAZY ANTICS AND DANCING. HE JUST DIDN'T BRING THE ENERGY BUT HIS SOUL WAS THERE.
