Great show. Very professional, but spoilt by the poor sound. This is an issue with Forest. Too much of Carters bass drum swamped an otherwise excellent show.

Great show, but problems with sound equalizing (bass drum).

Great show! I recorded it on my tiny mp3 player, (poor quality, but I'll still upload it soon). Unfortunately, my fiancée felt sick near the end so we missed the very end of the concert... But all in all, it was very nice to be there!

Was great seeing Dave and boys outside the US. Was with a friend who lives in Europe and had not seen a show in 10 years. So to us the show was outstanding.

It was my very first DMB concert! When I saw they would come to Europe I was ecstatic, one of my biggest dream came true. I flew there from Hungary with a friend. It was the best concert of my life!!! Everyone was awesome. They played some of the best songs ever. The whole atmosphere was great even though I had to sit. I had a perect view! I loved the two songs Dave sang alone with his guitar, he was amazing :) My two absolute favorite songs were Louisiana Bayou and Two Step. It was the best choice to end the show :) All in all it was an experience for a lifetime! I hope they come back to Europe again. I'll be there if they do...

The show was amazing! I've been to 13 shows now and this was one of the best. A great setlist and great energy. The Still Water -> DDTW opener was a beautiful way to start a show and there is no better way to finish a show than with Two Step. The end of the main set was one closer after another and they kept the energy up through it all. I thought it would never end, and that was a good thing. The only downside is that the sound tech's need to learn to turn the volume down in smaller venues. The reverbs made it hard to appreciate the amazing performance by the band. Also, Tom Morello should never be allowed to perform solo. Truly the most horrible opening act I have ever seen. Even though we suffered through it for an hour, the first 5 minutes of DMB made it all worth while. Tom was a nice addition as a guest guitarist, however.

The first DMB show i've ever been to.
Me and some of my best friends travelled from Hamburg to Belgium, had a nice 4-days trip, a lot of nice impressions of the surrounding area and the best last-night-of-a-trip you could imagine. After so many years of waiting, buying lots of live-DVDs to feed the hunger and thinking/dreaming about how to get to any show in the USA, i was totally blown away...

OVERWHELMING!!!

Definitely a good one! Carter, Rashawn, and Butch goofing off and adding backing vocals to Sister was fun to watch. Didnt look like it was planned, as Dave acted surprised and the three kind of snuck up to a mic off to the side of the stage that wasnt lighted. Some new lyrics added to ABI (one of my favorite songs to see dave perform. He especially went all out on this one). The Neil Young cover was also a highlight for me.

Just the beginning of DTTW, and then... just a long long dream... my first DMB show...

User: forchia

I was on the first row (standing area). Absolutely a blow-mind gig. Excellent setlist, and the band was really on that night. Carter was absolutely incredible, and Boyd broke down his sunglasses during a violin solo!!

My first DMB show... simply amazing. #41, Two Step, Ants, Jimi... all my favorite really rocked.

Hell of a show !

show started with Tom Morello, who was not bareable doing dylanish singer songwriter stuff. but he eventually redeemed himself when he came up on stage for #41 and satelite. the DMB set was superb. 3 hours and the boys really seemed to have so much fun, only problem dave seemed to have problems with his voice at times, especialy during the end of so damn lucky. favorites: don't drink the water grey street #41 jimi thing sister american baby intro jam two step

Great show. #41, Jimi Thing, Two Step and Crush have been the highlight. Tom Morello and Rashawn Ross added some fine tunes to the band. In the beginging to load, later better leveled out. Enjoyed every minute of it.

amazing one. After the intimacy of his last venue in Brussels with Tim, Dave offered us a great gig, finishing with an outstanding version of Two Step... Please come back to satisfy all your european fans !!!

This was a great show with great energy. It also was my first DMB-show. They should've made this one Live Trax 10...

Highlight: So damn lucky (Dave solo)

The backing vocals of Carter, Butch and Rashawn on Sister were really cool too ! Dave was even suprised they did it. Very good show.

Dissapointed. (5/10) Sound was often horrid, couldn't hear the bass or the violin most of the time (but sound is always a problem at vorst). Concert opened great with Don't Drink the Water, but went downhill afterwards, too many and too long pointless solo's. And too many covers. Dave has so many great songs, I'd rather hear those than The Maker or Down by the Water. The concert could have been cut by half (including Tom Morello who is not great as a solo artist), and would have been a lot better, or it could have been as long, with less jamming and more songs, or solo moments from Dave, that would have been great. The solo moments from Dave were the highlights of the concert. I saw Dave&Tim, also in Brussels and that was a great concert, no dull moment and real musicianship 10/10

First full band concert. Solid performance. So Damn Lucky was unexpected but one of the highlights of the evening. #41 with Tom Morello, Crush and American Baby Intro were also great. Forest National is a great vanue when it comes to seat locations: a perfect view from nearly everywhere in the arena. However, the quality of the sound is extremely poor. A lot of resonance on Stefan's bass. Nevertheless, a night to remember!

Fantastic venue...smallest i´ve ever seen dmb in! general admission was great, we were able to get on the floor right near the middle of the stage. and definitely a great vibe from the crowd too...loads of people dancing to almost everything! really cool setlist too....great opener with still water, and wicked versions of two step and jimi thing. so damn lucky was also a highlight. all in all, a great show!

My first Dave Matthews Band show!!!

Review:
Great! I was waiting 5 years for my first DMB-Show. I think the setlist was trimmed for the european people, but Dave and the Band did a great job - and I think they had a lot of fun playing in brussels, too. I hope they come to Germany either, perhaps next year?!? Dave said something like: "We haven't been here for a while, but i hope we come back soon!"

It was my first DMB show. The concert was great, as always. The set-list wasn`t perfect. I was waiting for songs like: Dancing nancies, Pig, Seek Up, Tripping Billies, Lie On Our Graves, Drive In Drive Out. Unfortunately the band decided to play other tracks. Off course there was lot off great songs. The best moment of that show: well, for me it was Two Step, Ants Marching, Crash Into Me and #41 with Tom Morello from RATM and Audioslave on acoustic guitar. There was a lot of fans from the whole Europe. I spoke with people from Belgium, Holland, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland and Hungary. So I could say after that show that, for sure, - Dave Matthews Band - connecting people. GREAT NIGHT>

Great show... But the sound was a little too loud to appreciate all the nuances of this awsome muci. Despite of a anoying set by Tom Morello, his guests performances of satellite and 41 are amazing!!!!

Great show! It was my first Dave Matthews concert and I enjoyed it thoroughly. My wish list for that day was Sister and Crash Into Me and he played them both. It was really great to have been there!

Finally they got back to Europe! A nearly ten-year wait ... A mini euro tour, and a date in Belgium in the nicest arena in Belgium. I had never seen so many people from abroad in a show in Brussels ! Fantastic show !
