2012 Tour, What Will they Play?
SPAC Weekend 2012 Is HerePosted by Jake Vigliotti in Tour News at 7:42am on Friday, Jun 8th, 2012
If there's something strange in the neighborhood of Saratoga Springs, no need to call anyone, it's just the annual (except for 2001) migration of Dave Matthews Band fans for the almost-yearly concert at SPAC.
DMB first performed at SPAC in 1994, as part of the HORDE Tour. And really from that show on, SPAC has turned out some of the best shows of that given tour year. Fans often talk of venues as Meccas for DMB fans, and of course there's some debate over a "big 3" or even "big 5", but there's no denying that SPAC is a special venue for DMB. If you're not familiar with some of the cool functions of Tour Central, you can actually see a breakdown of all the songs played at SPAC. As you see from that link, Ants Marching leads the way with 13 plays up to 2012.
Among some of the SPAC shows that stand out are Live Trax 11, 2008 with The Dreaming Tree, A Dream So Real, and #40 all being released in some manner, and 2009, which is the highest rated show by those attending the show (in the Ants era) for any SPAC show.
