The venue was awesome! The aucustics were fantastic. The songs were mostly the corporate "hits" and Dave had a little frog in his throat, but it was a great show with great energy.

This is a 4 for me because of the energy, venue, and how good the band sounded considering it was a random show in Feb. I would be curious to know if Zeus41 was at the show or not. Great version of Warehouse. #41 and Crush were very crisp. Dave had trouble getting the high notes on Satellite which is why they cut High Seas and replaced it later on with Ditch. If anyone has an accurate attendance number, I would be curious to know. It felt very small. Tons of energy from the band. Could definitely tell they were having a hell of a good time.

Sound quality was amazing. A very intimate and fun venue. Lights and affects outside were out of this world.

One of the best versions of Warehouse I've ever seen/hard. Awesome opener. Dave killed it on WH and killed his voice. Following songs were scratchy but he gave it all his heart and soul. commercial setlist, but fun nonetheless. Crowd was awful. Got a glove from Carter :)

Really sweet venue...thankful for making the trip out...the guys sounded good...awesome running into so many friends from the gorge... But the set was plain vanilla. After being super hyped for the warehouse opener (being in a warehouse mind you) it just sort of fizzled.

Show was great, venue was a little scary - and way too crowded!

Weirdest show I've been to yet...and not in a good way. The show itself was good because I mean its Dave Matthews but the venue was weird as shit...

Vanilla set. Looked like Dave and Stefan were sick? Needed more energetic songs on the setlist. Loved Warehouse! Amazing way to start the show. Always awesome to be so close, but different than any of my other 43 shows.

Amazing venue. Dave seemed under the weather, but still soldiered on despite having a "frog" in his throat (as me said). Definitely a "radio" show, playing the best hits. But with the Super Bowl weekend, it doesn't surprise me that they made a set list that appeased this crowd. Amazing opportunity.

This was the first show at this venue and boy did it show. The promoters, security, and staff weren't on the same page at all and everything was disorganized. I was in line at around 10:00 am. One venue guy ended up giving us there so early gold bracelets and told us that regardless of Livenation or WH ticket that we with gold bracelets would get in venue first. This ended up not being the case - people that had gold bracelets with livenation tickets had to wait to get it. Anyway, that has nothing to do with the review of the show. The show itself was the most 'standard' set of hits and expected songs I've seen. After a strong opener of Warehouse it just kind of died and lacked in energy. There weren't really any jams - like songs longer than 10 minutes or so. Maybe 41 did, not sure. I had a great time as I always do, and met a ton of awesome people. But I've seen far better performances. Was glad I made the trip though

Really enjoyed the show. 4.5 Stars. Made up for our experience at Shoreline last summer. We've never been so close (5 feet from stage) and may never have the chance again! Awesome start, followed by a few of my least favorites. Then they really got everyone going but a big deflation during Mercy. Bummer. Even people in the front were looking down at phones, etc. Preacher/Why I Am was amazing. Soberest crowd I've ever been around...must have been the one drink per person rule which was ridiculous.

great small venue but a lot of commercial songs were played. The bands energy was awesome !

Oversold and super crowded at first. Better once people cleared out a bit. Loved the intimate feel of the crowd with the balconies above.

Hits for days. Dave's voice was a little scratchy but the band had good energy. Venue was very cool and different than any Dave show.

It was fun but was very unorganized by the promoters. Nothing to do with DMB. But it was also very commercial. Still had a blast and would do it 1000 times more!!

Kindof a weird crowd. I was standing right next to the man who fainted so I missed the entire middle portion of #41. I enjoyed the set list but Dave's voice sounded tired. Still glad I went though. What a treat to have them come to SF!

The boys brought the energy to the gig, and though Dave struggled on a few songs (did The Warehouse opening do him in?), the guys all made up for it -- teamwork! Venue was pretty cool, and thanks to our good friends B&W, we were center stage, on the first balcony -- perfect!

Fun show, good energy, and a safe setlist; I left happy!

A commercial show demands a commercial set, and that's what was delivered. Fitting Warehouse opener followed by a slew of crowd pleasers. Crush and DDTW were predictable and the encore was obviously cut short due to time constraints. Crowd and band energy was great for an off season show. And I agree with the other reviews, Dave and Stefan looked under the weather. Stefan in particular looked like shit. He gave it his all though. Venue was super cool, even though getting in was a gong show and 8000 is far too many people to cram in there. This created poor sight lines, especially if you were stuck in the back. Overall, good show and I left satisfied.

The venue audio was really good although Dave's voice was a bit weak at points.

Front row stage right taped the show. Great location, Dave's voice was rough.

Medium type of setlist for my liking, but being on the rail always makes it so much better. After opening with Warehouse, Dave scanned the people on the rail and when I met his eyes he said, "My voice is fu_ _ _ d!" From then on he couldn't scream any more. He explained he had a frog in his voice, but I'm not so sure. Hopefully he didn't do any damage. The venue was amazing! Smallest crowd I've ever seen with the full band. Stefan was on one! He had that look in his eyes and he was dancing and jumping more than usual!

Good show in a different venue, lot of fan favorite songs but a lack of jamming. I enjoyed it mostly due to having a great seat.

Should be no stars. Worst setlist ever. Band should consider retiring if this is the shit they are going to do.

Radio songs...but the atmosphere was something else.
