The boys came out swinging and were ready to play. Opening four songs got this show rolling in a high energy way. Real psyched to hear When the World Ends, I love that tune. 41, Jimi Thing, Halloween>Billies and the entire encore were awesome moments in the show. I love Space Between in E1 slot as an acoustic. Little disappointed Good Good Time was a tease but I really didn't like that it went into You & Me. But this show was amazing and the band was on fire (Boyd especially).

Starting with DDTW, then going into Lie In Our Graves let everybody know that this was going to be a high energy show. Acoustic Space Between, are you kidding me???

From the opening song to the end, it was a fantastic show! When LIOG played as the second song, we knew this was going to be great. Jimi Thing, Two Step and #41 were highlights. Halloween into Tripping Billies was amazing! The new songs sounded good as well. No rain at Darien in years was also a plus!

Best show I've ever seen at Darien. Crowd was great. First time I've seen Boyd on fire in a long long time, he definitely set the tone for the night. Good Good Time tease, Halloween/Billies, Space Between acoustic all highlights. I hate the studio version of Everybody Wake Up but I love it live for some reason.

The entire show was good, but you have to love the end to the set: Jimi Thing, Good Good Time tease-->You & Me-->Halloween-->Tripping Billies. Absolutely Awesome! The Riff is really growing on me. Mercy, not so much...

My second DMB show. Last-minute decision to go with one of my buddies. Had an absolute blast. They played my two favorite songs (#41 and Lie In Our Graves) and I met some pretty awesome people. Definitely the highlight of my summer.

High Energy Performance tonight. DDTW, LIOG, 41, Jimi, & Halloween/Billies were the highlights. And the solo version of The Space Between is a must listen. What a beautiful version. Epic night.

This was one of those "you had to be there" type of shows, the set-lists does not do it justice. The CROWD gets an A+ which has become a rarity at DMB shows the last few years, energy was high, and the band was feeling it too, best crowd/band relationship I have seen in a long time. Also they played STAR SPANGLED BANNER ------ everyone took off their hats...... it was pretty damn cool!

Great show overall -- best crowd I've ever seen a show with; they were rocking from the second Stefan started the show with "The Star-Spangled Banner >> Don't Drink the Water" to start. And, my first Halloween.Very memorable

My 27th show and easily top 5! Setlist was decent, no tour debuts unfortunately, but the band had amazing energy and believe it or not Boyd had the most. He stole the show! Nice to see him finally back! The band was as tight as I have ever seen them and they did not miss a note! They were on fire. All the jams were out of this world. Loved The Space Between Acoustic! This band has still got it!

Perfect mix of old and new... Little lull in the middle, but there always is with Dave. Great solo close and loved #41. BTW - Hendrix style Star Spangled Banner was played as opener... not too sure many people caught it.

The Dave Matthews Band was ON FIRE 7/3 at Darien. So good to see and hear. Beautiful night for a phoenomenal show. Only one specific song comment: The Space Between performed by Dave solo to open the encore was amazing. Acoustic suits that song way better than band.

Solid show. Would have liked to hear Gaucho. Heavy on Grux songs still, felt a bit like 2010. New songs sound very chill. One of the better Darien crowds, good to be past the screaming teenage girl Everyday era. Great lighting and visuals on this tour.

Wow, easily the second best show I have ever been to! And not far off from the first (C'ville N2 2010). First Halloween and LIOG which was amazing! DDTW was a great opener. Crowd was awesome and Two Step was a great way to finish the show!

The best Buffalo area DMB concert in the past decade. It was a pretty good setlist, but the energy of the band and crowd put it over the top. Finally, Darien Lake felt like a more important venue, not just another stop on the tour.

Great show. Basically took the best parts of both SPAC shows this year and merged them (minus Minarets). Easily the best Darien show I've seen. Opening 2 songs( DDTW, LIOG), Halloween/Billies into a very solid encore, and of course amazing energy from the band.

This was definitely the best Darien Lake show I've seen. It was an amazing, high energy performance. They brought it, but I was mesmerized by Boyd.

Incredible energy, memorable setlist, Carter was on fire, and the crowd was electric. Mixing Time Bomb into Two Step during the encore was a great way to end the show. Best show Darien has had.

DMB is on fire this summer! They are loving every minute of playing together which is putting out great shows for the fans. The fans were into it from the start. Another great night for me. Last show of the summer for me unfortunately, but maybe I can figure out a way to see one more.

Great show. The band came out firing and the energy carried through the entire show. The crowd was great and really into it. A lot of repeats from SPAC but it was pretty much the best of N1 and N2 so no complaints here. Can't wait for Dave and Tim on the 15th!
