ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. This show straight out rocked from One Sweet World right to the end of Two Step. I love the new song "the Idea of You". Glad i heard it live. Warehouse outro was unreal. Say Goodbye and Song that Jane Likes were nice surprises. I did not think Say Goodbye was coming especialy after they already played 4 songs off of Crash, but sure enough i heard Carter and i knew, awesoeme treat. I really wanted Anerican Baby Intro tonite but its ok. People can say waht they want about dmb, but if you ask me, they are just getting started. God, continue to Bless this perfect band.

When you are stuck at the back of the lawn the crowd sucks. The set was amazing but not as good as night 1. I was really pissed when Everyday started to play but it wound up being my favorite song of the night!

Great show of course. Nobody was as pumped as Dave after HFGL. Not a low point for the whole show. I like all the new songs and was pumped to get to hear r&r. Awesome weekend. Already can't wait for next year. See ya'll at Hershey.

Very solid show. With all the hype for night 2 I was expecting something over the top, maybe IBYU or LS? Highlights were Warehouse and Everyday. Nice to have seats, when you see the lawn from the balcony you'll never want to be there again. Already listening to it on my iPod!

Sat in the last row of section 10. Had some really cool people sitting around us. Great show. Love the old stuff, loved the new stuff, and loved the not so old stuff. Some chick in front of my was crying hugging her sister during the song Sister. The show made up for the trip up from LI. The NY Thurway got shutdown due to an accident on the way up. Wound up driving about 100mi out of my way to avoid the accident. Left LI at 8:30pm finally got to my hotel at 2:30am. Called them to tell them we were running late. When we got their they tell us they don't have a room for us and they wind up putting us up in another hotel for the night. Wound up spending the night at the Super 8 instead of the Saratoga Hotel. Finally got to sleep at 3:30. Wasn't able to get an acceptable room at the Saratoga until 3pm so basically checked in and went to the show. Tried a different way to get to the show and wound up driving another bunch of miles out of my way to get their. But in the end DMB made the whole ordeal worth it.

My first time hearing The Idea of You. That was awesome. They played so many of my favorites..One Sweet World is such a kick ass opening song. The song that Jane Likes was also very cool to hear. I couldn't ever get enough of this band.

User: DMBKoz36
Review:
It seems the band gets stronger with every year. I dont think I've ever seen anything less than an amazing show at SPAC. It is an incredible venue. The crowd energy is insane. You can see the band feeding off of it and crowd feeding off the band in return. Great setlist tonight! I think they play Two Step every year, and I love it! Vusi was sick. You could tell Dave was pumped after he finally nailed Sister and after Two Step... Fist pump. Between the two nights they played every song off of Under the Table and Dreaming except Pay for what You Get and 34. Balcony was rockin hard for my 18th show and 11th @ SPAC!

Set List = Fucking Ridiculous (Saygoodbye, R&R, STJL, LIOG, Warehouse...BOWA, OSW, WOW) Not better than 7/29/02....nothing will ever be haha...and the two step chant needs to stop because what happened that night will never happen again. But all in all, a fucking amazing show...cant wait till scranton and next year

Probably the Best Dave show ive ever been to. The band were just so into the show that they left it all there on the stage, and you could feel the electric atmosphere. Crash was one of those songs that will stay in my mind as the best live performance ever.

User: greppson

WOW. Warehouse was amazing with Rashawn Ross during the salsa jam. Vusi Mahlasela on vocals on Everyday made this my most memorable concert next to N2 at Red Rocks.

My 13th show, and first of the 06 Summer tour. The show started off with great energy, but was lacking with that one Big song. this mentality completely changed with Lie in Our Graves. Boyd was sick on that, along with every other song last night. LIOG - RR - Warehouse (with Louie, Louie and the best version I've ever seen live) - and a completely unexpected Say Goodbye was an unreal 4 song run. An unreal Everyday and Two Step was icing on the cake. Deff top 3 shows.

Amazing, that is all I can say. Both nights they were on fire, right from Pig on. Saratoga is an excellent venue, no seat is bad. We had balcony the first night and were able to see the interaction with the band and the crew along the sides, and for the second night, orchestra, where the acoustics are the best. DMB shines here, no doubt!

crazy good show. STJL was hot. BOWA, LIOG, SMTS->ASTB all good. Got two step as I expected and it was on fire. Another great evening for the boys. Me and my buddy met some lovely ladies to sing and dance with and it was just a fun time overall. 4th show overall, second at SPAC...definitely hope to be back next year.

to anyone who attended both SPAC shows and was a little surprised at Everyday coming out both nights, you may have missed Dave saying "There's a good reason - there's a good good reason we're gonna do this one." right before the encore performance with Vusi - they'd been waiting to do it with him since the album came out!!! it was undeniably an amazing performance with fantastic crowd energy, and i think that his comment goes to show us all, amongst many other things, that the band is quite in-touch with its fans! get to a show this summer!!!

Great show, Great energy from the crowd and the band. The first 8 or 9 songs were the classics but with great energy. From Lie in Our Graves on the show was amazing. Awesome Warehouse (Louie Louie)Say Good Bye, Song that Jane Likes, and to finish it off Carter going just absolutly crazy on Two Step. All these things made the show one of the best i've been to!

longest dave show i've ever been to. he played from 8:20 - 11:20. Everyday with Vusi Mahlasela was an awesome touch to the crowd's participation in "come and dance with me honey honey". that just blew my mind away. closing with Two Step was an awesome ending. my favorite was crush, with Boyd's 15 minute solo at the end. i cannot believe he played Warehouse i was in heaven. all in all, best concert i've ever been to.

Overall I think night 1 was better, but this show was still great. Say Goodbye, LIOG, BOWA, STJL, and Warehouse were all amazing. The band even played the Louie Louie outro to Warehouse which was amazing! I was really confused and pretty pissed when they started to play Everyday again, but Vusi Mahlasela made the song very entertaining. Overall a great weekend with DMB!

Amazing show, my 3rd. My seats were great and the band was on. Say Goodbye and STJL was shockers and highlights for me. Little disappointed with the encore, Sister was good and my frst Two Step was great. Everyday was a letdown though. I thoguht for sure they'd play Dreaming Tree and I would've preferred the Smooth Rider we were supposed to get. Vusi didn't add much and this will version of Everyday is already highly overrated. Warehouse was sick. Can't wait until my next show, which I'm afraid won't be until the band returns to SPAC.
