This show was the best show that I saw all summer! It was the shit!

The show itself was pretty sweet. I just got back from cincy at the riverbend where I saw DMB on the first night. I am from Indy and when dave comes to town so do the fans, and lots of them. Compaired to the Cincy show this one made them look like a different band! The crowd in Indy is always a good one but this one took a little while to get warmed up. So far this summer Dave's encores have been kinda weak so after hearing Cry Freedom and What You Are at the Cincy show I was content with leaving after dave ended with Tripping Billies before coming back out for an encore. That was the highlight of the show and is by far the best I have heard that song played, even better then the live CD's that hit the stores. I must say I could have done without hearing Loving Wings and You Never Know. He should just take all of his Everyday songs and throw them away, its done and over with. I was hoping the Encore would consist of either Ants or Watchtower but he opened up with The Maker. I have been wanting to hear this song live ever since it hit live at Chicago. Then Dave broke out into Stay. The encore was alright but I would have much rather them ended the show with Tripping Billies. I really wish I could go back for Monday nights show but I don't have the cash and I dont feel like waiting 2 hours in my car to get out of the place like I did last night. I bet tonight the encore will be Ants and Watchtower. He always seems to play the best songs when I am not there. Although I cant complain about Sunday nights show, it was a great one!

It was my first Dave Matthews Band concert, but it was a great one for my first time. Pig as the opener was awesome, it set the tone for the show, Too Much had a ton of energy, the whole crowd was singing all the songs it was incredible. GS and WTWE were terrific, then the show mellowed out some but then they came back with #41 after a few slow songs. Boyd fiended at the end for a long outro for #41, DDTW had a ton of energy, DT was cool to hear and it was a long version. Jimi Thing was an awesome jam session, LeRoi was playing the hell out of his sax, it was complleing, and it was funny to hear the pass it down so we can all get high, since there was quite the sweet smell in the air. KKJ was a fun song, and then the show just slowed down, Stefan did the slide intro to GIG which was something rare to see, then LW and WAYG were just too many added slow songs to the show, the show had its great times of energy but had a little too many slow songs, but Im not complaing I love this band. My fav part of the show was Help Myself, I love that song and I cant beleived they played it, it was by far the best version of the song, 1-800-Help Myself, then the centerpiece of the show, Tripping Billies, it had a ton of energy, everyone in the band got into the song and Dave and Boyd were going at it all over the stage. The Maker was a nice cover song to hear, and then Stay, which came out to be a great closer with alot of added energy from the band, but overall the crowd was into the whole concert and it was a great setlist, I cant wait for my next show!

Great show, horrible venue! I dont think half the people there were there to see Dave. All they did was walk around and talk. I saw about 5 fights break out.

What a great show and a great setlist. Pig, Dreaming Tree, WTWE, The Maker and #41 all in the same night.....Awesome! Dave and Boyd got crazy on Tripping Billies! Loved it!

User: Dave41
Review:
Very good show. Played 41 and The Dreaming Tree, two of my favorites. Dave was into the music and danced around the stage for some songs. Boyd's talents were showcased during this show. The crowd was not disappointed.

Wow... what a show. One of the best I have seen. The first time for me not sitting in the pavillion, and I was very impressed. High energy from the crowd, and virtually a mistake free concert from the boys, with the exception of Boyd getting a little early on his Jimi Thing solo, but they recovered well. The absolute best Tripping Billies I have heard, best Stay, and I get to hear Loving Wings, Dreaming Tree, and YNK, which I had never heard live. All in all a great night, great weather, great crowd, and a great show. Hope tonight is as good.

The concert was incredible. The highlight of my night was Tripping Billies. I have heard that song a lot, but it had to be the best version i've ever heard. All around great show.

User: dmb_fanatic2002

pretty good concert. #41 was awesome

User: dntbrnthpig041
Review:
I thought the show kicked ass!!!! Especially since they opened with Pig, which is one of my all time favorites. I went to both nights Sunday, and Monday and I think that they like playing here better than the both nights I was at Riverbend. Setlist for both nights were amazing, Help Myself, Loving wings, Dreaming Tree, Pig, the list goes on and on with greatness. Even though I was in the lawn both nights, I will probably never be again, because the crowd sucks in the lawn. They do nothing but talk, and it drives me out of my mind, so for now on it's nothing but pavilion, because I had it a Riverbend and it is so much better. Other than that both nights kicked ass!!!! Cheers:)

User: greenpick41
Review:
The begining of the show had an amazing amount of energy and really got the crowd going, Boyd was really worked up for the first few songs, 41 and Jimi Thing were exciting songs to hear live. Help Myself was a surprise and Tripping Billies was the best song I've ever heard, the encore could not live up to the closer but ended with two good songs nonetheless.

This show was awesome because dave and boyd were really getting into it ang goin crazy. Also I loved how they drew out Jimi Thing and Dave kept singing during the big jam section "Well don't you roll it up and pass it around so we can get HIGH!" Dreaming Tree was amazing I have never heard that live before. All of the other good ones that just made the night awesome!

DMB never fails to amaze. Starting the night off with Pig gave the concert energy right from the start. I'm always a fan of Too Much and have loved Grey Street from when I first heard it in 2000. Dreaming Tree, Jimi Thing, Help Myself, and Maker were all sweet to hear for the first time in concert. Loving Wings is quickly starting to become one of my favorites, too. Ending the main performance with Billies...I couldn't have asked for more on that one. The power that song gives to the crowd is just crazy. Closing the encore with Stay wasn't what I was hoping for, but...hey, it's a Dave song, so still amazing! Overall a very solid concert with plenty of energy from the band.

Good show...the crowd was full of energy, as was the band...opening with PIG was great, loved #41, DDTW, HELP MYSELF (surprise!!), TRIPPING BILLIES, THE MAKER, and STAY!!! First concert this summer where we were drunk the entire time...so I can't really comment on the actual songs (hee hee, sorry) but we had a blast! 5 down, 2 to go...See everyone again tonight and in Tinley Park!

Good Ole' Deer Creek..... My 10th show I was looking forward to seeing the boys play at this badass venue the next two shows and I sure as hell wasn't dissapointed. PIG, I love this song as an opener its a good change from DDTW. TOO MUCH the usual. GREY ST, the show was pretty upbeat by this time, great version. #41, awww hell this was just an amazing version.....I was still just waiting for Dreaming Tree & Last Stop!!! Then I finally got Dreaming Tree after DDTW, I was going nuts! Jimi thing rocked, I love the jam they do towards the end. Kit Kat was a first also. I was really suprised to hear Help Myself, that song rocks. Billies was no doubt the best version i ever heard, Boyd went absolutly nuts on it. I was hoping for a Two Step encore but Make & Stay were pertty cool....Have to admit its better than Diggin-->WYA....Deer Creek Shows were definitely in my top 5.

Had a good time, but I'm more of a 'closing show' type of person. His first shows (like tonight), seem to lack the energy of the 2nd shows. But, awesome Jimi Thing jam!!! As always, I love it, and I can't wait to be back tomorrow night!

User: mischievousgrin

Just the high lights... Pig, always great to hear, nice opener. Too Much and Grey Street, very nice but GS deserves to have the second verse back. Electric comes out...electric goes back, YNK followed by #41 got love that. DDTW was standard quality and then Dreaming Tree. Love that Dreaming Tree. Jimi Thing...Top Notch, they rocked the shit out of that tune, Roi was all over it. KKJ, Grace, Wings, WAYG, Nice full band Help myself and a good Billies to close out. Maker was quiet, even full band, very nice and Stay was a pretty jazzy ending. An above average show I'd say, good crowd, good energy..but it's the Jimi Thing that seals it. The show is worth having just for that song.

Good show. GREAT start to the show! First 10 songs or so were absolutely perfect. Not a surprise that the end wasn't as good, the show had no where to go but down. #41 and Jimi were the highlights. Angel was a pleasant surprise. (I'm part of the minority who enjoy a little "Everyday" in set lists) Overall a good show!

Good Show, my favorite venue, just a boring setlist. Although, DDTW and Angel were great, and I really liked Pig as the opener. Things just got kinda boring before Tripping Billies, which was the best Billies I've ever seen.

First half of the show had incredible energy, particularly the first 3 songs. #41 and DDTW also superb. The Dreaming Tree is just blah blah blah. The Grace is Gone, Boring Loving Wings, WAYG combo was maybe a bit too laid back. Help Myself could go back in the vault. Trippin is always good.

very impressed...First Pig, good opener. Too Much was very energetic for second song....a little slow until #41. Jimi Thing was phenomenal. Kit Jam was highlight of the night for me until Help Myself. Apparentley only one in my section who knew the song. Very very cooool. Billies is one of my all time favorites. Maker/Stay encore was excellent way to cap out the night. Looked like they were having a lot of fun.

Great opening to this show. The 20 minute long version of Jimi Thing began to drag a little toward the end though. This show was worth it for #41 alone. It was absolutely phenomenal.

got to hear dave at his best and the band was all in sync. heard the best rendition of #41 that ive ever heard. was very impressed the first part of the show, but the songs near the end were kind of disappointing compared to their fast start. pulled out some good songs in angel and help myself and ended the main set very nicely with billies. stay, although a very good song, just does not do it for me as a closer. i did leave very satisfied. hopefully i will be able to see DMB again in nashville.

Not a bad show overall although could've been better. I'm probably just really spoiled since this is my fourth show of the tour. 41, DDTW and Jimi were amazing. Best Dreaming Tree I've heard them do so far. However, I could've done without the jam of Loving Wings and the segue into WAYG. They really need to retire that radio song. Debut of Angel on the tour and, uhhh, well, they performed it well but I'm not really a fan of that song. Good energy from the boys overall, though. Still waiting for BOWA to come back. Although I'm not going tonight, tonight's show will probably be a lot better (the second nights of their two-night stays seem to be the best so far - see 6-24-03).

1st concert ever and pumped up for it...a little bit of a let down however...started out great, PIG!! Great opener, couldnt think of anything better, went into too much amazing. Grey street, when the world ends, angel all amazing. You never know is gaining popularity but still nothing special. #41 was a great touch and dont drink the water was most peoples pop of the night. During dreaming tree the crowd was dead but a good song all around. Jimi thing was my favorite part of the night...dave really got into the song and it sounded amazing. Kit kat jam sucked my ass...i hope he never plays that song again, i sat down during this one. Grace is gone is not a good concert song, its way too slow and not jazzy at all. Loving wings and where are you going were awful, help myself is a good song but NOBODY knows it, once again the crowd was dead. Trippin billies pumped us back up and it was a great closer. But the maker as an encore was ridiculous...i was ready for an ants or two step and to hear something i didnt know was very disappointing...stay was a good closer, but the energy was low due to the concert being slower then yourmom. Disapointing but still fun

Pavillion seats were good, great view. Crowd sucked. When the band would slow down and do a quite jam, like after #41 I think, couldn't hear a thing due to people just talking. I've never been to a concert in my life where so many people were not paying attention and talking to each other the entire show. First time to this venue, nice place. Band was awesome, only thing I missed was Watchtower. Hopefully they will play that this weekend at Alpine Valley.
