The bad had mad energy for this show. I don't know what it was but they were playing possesed tonight. The setlist was filled with a ton of new stuff but the band seemed to really get into playing them tonight and that made the songs somewhat more enjoyable. The new stuff is decent but tonight it sounded like it had a new life.

A little more mellow that last year's show and certainly shorter.A friend of mine hated it and booed the band. I'm soooo glad i wasn't sitting with him! I still had fun.

Relative to all 18 other DMB shows I've been to, this was around the bottom. But bad for Dave is still better than most! Setlist was short and a little boring. Hello Again was incredible!

Highlights: #41 opening, BOWA, Hello Again rocked the joint. Still, they started off kinda low energy and it took them a while to warm up. I would say that the last half hour, they finally peaked.

I think that was my seat????? Had a blast, messed up foot and all! I was in a car accident 3 days before and was not in good shape but had a friend flying out from Nebraska and wasn't about to pass that up!

This was a pretty decent show, although it was a little short. I was really excited to hear best of what's around and typical situation.

The first time I saw the boys at this venue!! I love it!! Set seating so you can dance! It was amazing!

#41 is always awesome. Best of Whats Around and Drive In Drive Out were great. Pantala Naga Pampa/Rapunzel to close. The rest of the show was a repeat of the previous 2 shows in Albuquerque and Phoenix. Again just one encore song.. *sigh*. Really short show, barely 2 hours long. But what the hell, it was DMB and I loved it.

Highlights: #41 as opener, BOWA, Too Much, Drive In Drive Out. Overall a slow show. I sat in Section 101, and for the most part it was pretty dull. A lot of fans sitting down and little singing along...overall, low energy from the whole crowd except the orchestra. DMB is always good, but I've definately seen better than this show. Not their best.

The show wasn't bad, the audience was pretty dead. The first time I heard Hello Again -- still called New Song #2. Was very impressed.

User: Fish'sDreams
Review:
I called both the opener and the closer, #41 and Rapunzel, respectively, although it was more wishful thinking than anything else. Took my dad for his birthday, it was his first show. The new songs sounded great. Carter's solo on Hello Again was out of control. Typical situation and Best of What's Around offered an old school flavor to boot. Add in my first Stone and the always enjoyable When the World Ends, and it was another great night under the stars at Coors.

the closest i've ever been to the stage. i could see the entire bands actual faces without looking at a big screen. LOVED IT!! *thanks* to crash for taking me :)

A very good performance from all the members. What we all have come to expect from DMB. A must have!

User: Hairy Larry
Review:
Wow! Great and interesting setlist. Too Much and Rapunzel were killer! and pretty much every song on that set was awsome. Drive in Drive out, 41, joy ride, hello again, bowa, and typical were all highlights as well. The only problem was that everyone around me was smoking pot and that was pretty irritating. amazing sound. Awesome Show!!

short short set=/ left wanting more...

User: jfa87

Crowd was a little mellow, I think that's what prompted them to only do 1 encore. #41 was a treat as always. Carter was on his game and performed an awesome TS.

Show #9 for me, if you count the Grammys, which I sorta don't, since that was only one song. Anyway, great show last night, if a tad short. No real suprising song choices, but a great set nonetheless. And the band was on fire. Possibly the best show I've seen so far. Had 5th row center seats this time - might have had a little to do with it. Yay! New stuff sounded fantastic live. Somebody through a joint up on stage right before the encore, and Dave bent down, picked it up, took a puff and through it back into the audience.

Joy Ride and Hello Again blew us all away!

User: LMB1031
Review:
Awesome show! This was show #1 out of 4 on the tour for me. I was hoping to hear #41, DIDO and Rapunzel - but didn't expect it all to happen on the same night! Yippee! I had heard the new songs only on download before and they sounded AMAZING live. Lots of good energy in the crowd... at least in my section 202. Everyone was singing, dancing and having a great time. I'm really looking forward to the 2 Home Depot shows next.

Best show ever attended

User: Ryan Baker

to all of you who didnt like it, chill out. although i might say it was pretty short, it still was pretty darn awesome. #41 to start was amazing. BOWA was fantastic. Hello Again was great cause dave was getting into it. he got very loud at times during the song. Typical situation....wow. Have never heard that song live, and it was undescribable how well played it was. here was a treat-Crash. such a great jam, havent ever heard it in san diego, my home town. the new songs were all very good, can't wait for the new album. Too Much was great.it suprised me because they didnt play SMTS before that. Out of nowhere!!!Loved it, dave really got into that song. And Repunzel to end it was enjoyable also, they really got into the finale of it. To all the critics out there, quit looking for negatives, and start trying to enjoy the shows for what they are...we are all human, and DMB is the best band on the universe, I believe they are allowed to have an "off day" once in a while.

I remember really liking Joy Ride and I thought that Dave scatting "YEAH! WHAT?! OKAY!" was pretty funny.

User: sfisher
Review:
All in all, not the best DMB show I have seen. I had more fun at Dave and Friends recently. Dave didn't seem like he was really "into it" at this show, he just came out, played and moved on.

Poor setlist and very short show. 2003 was much better.

All I have to say is HELLO AGAIN! It is the next halloween live. It was Insane!!!!!!!!!!!

User: wlgolden

Awesome show! Some of the variations of old tunes was really exciting to hear. Lawn was a rockin' party, a little chill in the air and everyone had a great time.

First show, really enjoyed it.

Review:
Of course, it was a Dave Matthews Band show, so it rocked. A little on the light side, but not all of the bands shows can be the same high energy shows. That's what makes them diverse. There were 4 songs I really wanted to hear and they didn't play any of them. That was a little letdown, but still an amazing show. They get better and better every year and Carter is easily the Best of What's Around...
