best show i was ever to. 8th row, great songs, and a pretty fun crowd (not as into it as montage's crowd though). liked the venue, except for traffic afterwards. he played a lot of my favorite songs, and this was te irst concert my boyfriend and i were at alone together. i was also very impressed with the stage.

The show was pretty strong, would have liked some more new songs but those that were played seem to be coming along well. Boyd was on fire during nancies, Crush and Bayou. The "put your finger in it" line sung by Dave during nancies gotta laugh from the rest of the guys and was an ongoing joke on stage the whole night. Stefan hit some really low feed back during the Don't drink the water intro and then went with it. The bass was so low, my eyes were vibrating in their sockets, it was badass! Disappointed we didn't get Sister for an encore and although Ants Marching was strong, it was a little predictable. Overall, it was above average.

Hershey is always a unique DMB experience. I hate hate HATE amphitheters like the tweeter chain so anything different is great, and this is great. It's a football field. Now, the view can suck cause it's flat, but the community vibe there is so cool, that it's almost like a phrat party with Dave playing in the backround. I always meet people at hershey. ANywho, great set, JTR Dreaming Tree and Joy Ride made the night perfect.

This was my first DMB show and it was love at first sight! I adored the crowd, chatting with fellow DMB lovers and meeting new people. It was my first experience in general admission on a field, and while it wasn't ideal (kicked by crowd surfer, beer spilled down my back), it was something I'll never forget!

ROCKIN. My roommate and I drove down from WNY and back all in one night, getting back to New York around 7:30 AM the next morning. Amazing show, tremendous energy, and just rockin. The parking lot seen was beat, and we got gawked at for lighting a spliff during DDTW. Oh well, I had an amazing time and would like to know if anyone else got held up at the crossing by humpty dumpty and that tough middle aged woman.

I loved the show. I am sure that is the response most of the time. I do have to say though, Dave seemed pretty messed up at the concert. He started to play Stay and as soon as he hit the first note he knew he was playing the wrong guitar. The guitar he had was in drop D. Oops. He repeated some verses and of course some other little blunders. That is what is so great about his shows is his relaxation and even when something goes wrong he has no worries.

Probably one of the best setlists Ive ever had the chance to see, especially from the 7th row. Boyd was on fire, I think he covered the entire stage!!!! Blown away by BOWA as an opener! Can't believe the rain held off, someone up there is a DMB fan

Definitely made up for last year's poor preformance. Other than the fact that I couldn't hear the first 3 songs thanks to four bitches who were shouting the wrong words to the songs, the show was amazing. Most energy I've experienced at any show, and definitely one of the best so far. New Can't Stop was pretty a pretty solid song, can't wait to see it develop. Other than that, some nice classics, but a little dissapointed we got nothing from Busted Stuff, though I'm almost positive there was a Grace is Gone tease before DDTW.

Amazing Set List

User: bradz4life
Review:
New Live Songs Seen: BOWA, Say Goodbye, Dreaming Tree, JTR, Break Free, Can't Stop, Shotgun GREAT, GREAT show from beginning to end. Have to agree with a lot of other reviews in that Boyd was on FIRE. Hard to pick overall highlights on the night cause everything was pretty much consistently amazing but if anything I'd have to go with Crush & Nancies->Warehouse. Bradz's first show in Hershey will definitely not be his last. Summer '06: 1 down, 3 to go.

Like everyone has been saying, probably the best Hershey show I've been to. Thought it was hilarious that they scheduled some religious speaker the same night, the looks on some of the people's faces walking through the parking lot were priceless! Very good mix, BTCS is my favorite album, glad to hear a lot from that. Kind of wished it would have rained a little bit, seemed almost like Dave planned the set list around it, lots of references to rain in the lyrics, mainly JTR but 4 or 5 others too. Also, not one to really pay attention to the background, but the lighting and what not are really cool for this tour.

I loved this show. Many of my favorites were played and all of the songs were played with a lot of feeling and most with a lot of energy. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the crowded beer areas. It was very hot and people were miserable, which of course the band had no control over. Most of the people who were around us were very friendly. There were four people behind us who did nothing but complain, and it was hard to tune them out. However, it was a minor nuisance; it didn't hinder my enjoyment.

Sweet show. New stuff was cool. You can tell Shotgun is no where near done, but it should rock later on. 12 hour drive to this show but it was worth it to hear Dave yell "Chocolate!!!" O.A.R. was outstanding.

Great Hershey Park Concert. I was very close thanks to an ants member. I don't understand why they didn't go back there again this year.

amazing. easily the best setlist i have ever been a part of. BOWA, NANCIES, louie louie on WAREHOUSE, PIG, DTREE, JTR, ANTS. simply amazing. he plays a tiny 12 string on shotgun... im thinking its an octave higher than a normal guitar. he said how his guitars were getting "smaller" and before the encore he spilled tea on himself and said it looked like he had peed himself. funny, funny guy. out of the 11 shows ive been to, this is easily in the top 2 or 3. great, great show.

interstate 76 made for a stressful day before the show. it was a solid set, but the crowd was terrible, incredibly hot and full of headaches. it felt great to finally catch dreaming tree and a BOWA opener.

User: crazy_easy
Review:
A very solid show, great overview of the band's catalogue. I was hoping for more of the rare songs they've been playing this tour (Raven, Big Eyed Fish, Grace is Gone), but we got Dreaming Tree and JTR so I can't really complain. Break Free sounds great, I'm pretty sure Shotgun fell apart early (Dave thanked the crowd with an apologetic shrug). Boyd stole the show all night, could have used more Roi and Rashawn jamming though. At least the rain that threatened us all day never came more than a few drops!

User: daclownman
Review:
Overall it was a great show. Plenty of new and old. I thought he played too many newer songs as well as brand new songs. And during the new songs the crowd wasn't really into it, and it kind of put a downer on the night. But it was still a great concert as it was Dave.

What a great show. Started off kinda wierd b4 DMB came out to play though. Went to our seats and the row was full. People were cool about it, but I didn't pay all that money to not get a seat. So they moved. The setlist was amazing. I love the new stuff, can't wait for the new CD. JTR was pretty rare in the encore. Nancies, Dreaming Tree and Say Goodbye are always a pleasure to hear. Boyd owned the night. Thank god the rain held off

Amazing setlist...first time in 15 shows we got Dreaming Tree, very nice. Boyd was on fire, hes like got 10X the energy he usually has. He was really on top of it. I'd like to say that after going to Hershey every year since 98' this was by far the best show. The set is usually on the "weaker" side at Hershey...but not this time. The fans ARE into it in Hershey..despite some reviews Im reading..trust me on this one. I was dissapointed not to hear KTK or IOU but, theres always Scranton on July 5th. Last year was the first year they played the Ford (now Toyota) Pavilion in Scranton and it was amazing...so looking forward to another great show...

Awesome show! The band looked like it was having a blast up there tonight. (Well last night) Got to hear the sound check, that's a band that can JAM!!! DAve looked like he had some guitar trouble here and there, (roadie had a bad night?) But he shook it off ans still had fun! I would name any cd of this "The Boyd Tinsley Show" He was ON last night! Set list was great, still Typical Situation-less (that's the only one of the old tunes I still really want to hear live and in person) Nancies into Warehouse was killer! The Louie Louie jam was funny! Being a total local, I didn't have any traffic or parking issues...sorry guys locals secrets get me home five minutes after getting into my car!...However, I heard that because HERCO scheduled TWO MAJOR EVENTS the same night that traffic was a clusterf***! Crowd wasn't too bad, people just need to learn to go to THEIR seats and leave people who paid good money to their seats...Security was a pain for this but it was needed! Can't wait for Scranton!!!

So happy I finally got to hear dreaming tree and JTR. Tailgating was awesome, great people, great music, and good times. Can't beat it. One of the best DMB shows I've ever been to.

Highlights would have to be Joy Ride, Dreaming Tree, JTR, Say Goodbye and Warehouse.

This show probably ranked number two for my all-time best shows. I heard everything I wanted to hear and then some. JTR and Dreaming Tree were the two songs that made this evening unforgetable. Joyride and Shotgun were also very good. LB was an awesome jam, and the Ants closer was exactly what the crowd pleaded for. Throwing in Say Goodbye absolutely blew me away. Thank you Dave for a fabulous night (and it didn't even rain).

I live right down the highway from Hersheypark and every time a decent concert comes to town me and my friends go and stand outside. We usually go near the end and catch the last 5 or 6 songs for free because you can stand right next to the stadium and hear everything.It's basically as if you were inside (and sometimes you can see everything when they open the gates).Anyway, the last 5 songs were amazing. Especially because I didn't pay a dime to hear them!

Loved this show. After seeing DMB in Hershey, I finally got Say Goodbye. No matter what people say, I always like going to Hershey to see a show. Some people were getting a little annoying thru the performance and were starting to work my nerves though, I just chalk it up to getting older!!

This was my 3rd show and my first of two shows for 2006. I was in mexico the day before and i ate the ice cubes on my plane ride home(i assumed that they used pure water, i was wrong). So i woke up on friday morning at 3 am and pretty much slept in my bathroom. I drugged myself up and went ot the concert. I was totally blown away by the bands energy after the lackluster performance from last year. BOWA was a great opener and pig was awesome. I was kind of laughing during dont drink the water because of my illness. Dreaming tree was a highlight as well as a very solid encore. Overall a fantastic show one of the best for 2006.

Set list was one of the best I've seen!!! Very impressed. Boyd definitely stole the show!! I couldn't believe how mellow the crowd was though. It was like being in a bar during DT and it was the background noise. Even though the crowd sucked, the venue sucked, and the campground sucked (bunch of drunk 17 year olds puking even before the show started), the setlist was FANTASTICAL!!!

This is my first time logging onto Ants all summer long; I wanted to try to be surprised by the setlists this year. And what a great idea it was, I nearly had a heart attack when he started playing dreaming tree. If you were in section C, I was that guy that screamed "Oh My F@#$ing God!!!" when they started up. Say Goodbye, the return of joyride, and then when I thought it couldn't get any better he busts out the 12 string for the encore (I thought Grey Street for sure) and played JTR. First time seeing DT and JTR in 26 shows, just amazing. Highlight of the night: Boyd shredding that violin all over the stage- the energy was ridiculous. Bonnaroo last weekend, and now Dave Matthews at Hershey. . . I am on the high of my life. Great people, great music, great times. See you all in Boston and at Randall's Island, Cheers!

Very very good. Setlist was mostly strong, cudda done w/o dreaming tree and BOWA but other than that fantastic. Encore had to be seen to be believed. First concert and it set the bar high.

Man, Hersheypark is such a great place for a DMB show every year. Their setlist tonight reminded me of the one's they've played years ago, most recently the setlists from the unreal 2003 tour(which is still my fav.) Highlites included: Great BOWA opener, Say Goodbye, DDTW (crazy, dramatic intro), Joy Ride, Nancies>Warehouse, Crush, Stay, JTR>Ants Marching (this was without a doubt, the best encore I've ever heard. There was so much energy and the mood was perfect). The song of the night was Dreaming Tree. They had a great back drop for the song and the whole vibe was very dramatic. The crowd was very attentive to this rare showing of a DMB classic brought back this tour. I am very excited to start off this concert season with this show. Ranks up there with the legendary 9/11/03, and 7/10/04 shows at Hershey. See you tomorrow night at the Stone Ridge.

Awsome show but i really wanted to hear Watchtower, plus the beer cost way too much and took almost a half an hour to get one. other than that it was an amazing show

Crush and Nancies ... completely amazing. Parking was awful, though. Ended up coming in during Say Goodbye thanks to traffic, construction, and the excuse of a parking situation around Hershey. Awesome show, though.

Damn, was this a fine show! Listened to the soundcheck and heard Shotgun being played, so I hoped we would hear it. BOWA and Pig to start it off, plus JoyRide, JTR, Ants, Dreaming Tree, and Shotgun? Easily in my top five shows for sure!

1st show of the year ... very solid ... good energy throughout ... nancies-->warehouse then dreaming tree was awesome ... of course you got the people there just to hear crash that made d. tree a piss break but whatever ... i enjoyed it ... intro to dont drink the water sounded like they were gonna play either what you are or american baby intro ... break free is my favorite new song and it sounded great last night ... jtr ants encore will be tough to beat ... off to nissan tonight!

so if it wasn't for that guy selling me his warehouse ticket right in front of the gate I would have never experienced this incredible show!!! BOWA opener solid, then to see PIG, SG, DDTW, in a row was incredible, not to mention nancies, warehouse, DT, JTR and Ants...F'n awesome!!!!!!

User: tymeckis

Great show... a lot of Earlier tunes which was a pleasnt change. Really liked Shotgun. Louisiana Bayou is sure to be a new favorite... I think it ALMOST might rival #41. My personal favorite for the night was a meticulous version of dreaming tree. Amazing encore... fantastic show for sure!

freakin sweet setlist, best of what's around, dreaming tree was awesome, nancies into warehouse, ants to close....could have done with something like....raven or big-eyed fish instead of jtr--don't get me wrong jtr is great, but not for an encore. i was a little disappointed dave didn't come out and do sister by himself, but i'm going to camden on tuesday, so hopefully he will. if you were there you saw a great concert, if you weren't you missed a great concert!

A good show... Hated the seating in the lawn, could hardley see the stage. Show started out on fire and then the crowd seemed to just die when dreaming tree hit, have no idea why. Crowd, atleast where I was, was one of the worst I have ever seen... The band was on fire tonight though and it was all Boyd... The crowd did go crazy when boyd played and he fed off the energy... Overall a good show, the band was great tonight, just the crowd and the seating kept this from being a amazing concert....
