It was awesome! Don't Drink the Water, Minarets, Watchtower...all sooo good! I was really surprised by the great audience in OKC and how much the band was into it...how do they keep this up?! They blew me away again!

This show was so much more than I expected for my first dave show! Plus the girl i was with was a long time friend, it was awesome, we sat 9 rows back. AMAZING!! Watchtower was possibly the best thing that ever happened to me. ONE SWEET WORLD!! The intro rocked, great show!!

INCREDIBLE! This was show #8 and I had a fourth row view. From the minute Dave stepped on the stage you could tell he was feeling OKC, and to open with Don't Drink the Water was awesome. Dave and Carter were laughing, smiling, slapping fives and giving thumbs up throughout the whole show, and not to mention that Dave was dancing and jammin more than usual. The crowd was GREAT! The setlist....Say Goodbye, Warehouse, Minarets, Typical situation, Watchtower....WOW! And to top off my experience I was one of the lucky ones Carter threw his stick at. This show was the best so far thanks to the setlist, seats,crowd and of course Carters's stick.

First DMB concert and it was everything I hoped it would be.

The show was great. Great energy from the crowd. Say Goodbye was awesome and we got the first Watchtower of the tour. I got the show I basically wanted except the encore. I could have done without What You Are. It never seemed like a good closer to me. OKC girls are BEAUTIFUL. That's all I have to say about them. Stefan playing the still guitar on GIG was awesome, and Boyd using the Crybaby on Watchtower was even better. Great show. Dallas and Denver are next for me and they have a tough act to follow. Especially with the girls.

People go to shows for different reasons, you can pull from so many in the arsenal on what ignites you, why you feel the connection or what sort of stamp it will leave on your heart and soul. One cant help being moved after driving into Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for the first time, the speckle of a skyline that grows on the edge of the dust bowl smack dab in the middle of America. One cant forget what occurred at the Alfred P Murrah building on the morning of April 19 1995, one one the most horrific acts on American soil. I have never been to Oklahoma City before and not sure if I will ever make it back. I can honestly say when I visited in 2003 it still grossly ached from the tragedy 8 years ago, I was brought to tears as I walked through the memorial and thought about all of my loved ones and how it could have been any of us on that fateful day. This was again DMB\'s only stop in \"thunder town\" and one can imagine that the past was instilled on the their minds mind as well. That mantra was carried and properly conveyed into the nights performance. An early set PIG only solidified the emotions of the day, time and place. Pig morphed into One Sweet World maybe a reminder of what we have each awakening, A Grey St, Minarets, Typical, Watchtower closed a great and inspirational set. A Cry freedom> What You Are only broadcast the bands message even further. 7-13 & 7-15-03 easily rank in the more special shows that I have attended. Each show takes on its on personality and feel, and each of these shows represent why one would go to the lengths of the universe to be part of the magic

AMAZING I was a little disappointed at first when i left because i didnt hear Ants Marching or Jimi THing but then i got to think man i am a greedy person. When i look back i would have been happy if all he did was play All Along the Watchtowwer because that was by far well worth the 75 i payed to go see him, this was my first DMB concert and i gaurantee it wont be the last

very energetic show...amazing, typical situation blew my mind with the jam section in the middle of it

Review:
it was cool to hear crash and say goodbye back to back - I sat behind the stage, about two rows behind Carter - which was MIND BOGGLING!! There's so much he does that the mics never pick up. even the slow songs have these minute hihat hits and accents that ... well, there's no way to describe it. Bonus for Cry Freedom on this night!

Utterly amazing! i was so thrilled to hear minarets & pig and the rendition of all along the watchtower with stefan playing the star spangled banner as intro...WOW! the whole show was fantastic and if crowd response means anything, the boys should be back to OKC again.

First DMB show

User: deadmandunking
Review:
Excellent muscianship, but poor vocal mix made the show a little hard to enjoy. I hear The Ford Center is due to get a new sound system and supposedly, DMB was not able to use all their equipment and it didn't 100% jive w/ the Ford Center equip. I can only hope a mic recorded it differently than I heard it. BTW EXCELLENT Watchtower!!! Also enjoyed DDTW, OSW & CIM.

Underrated show! Pretty rare stuff getting Say Goodbye, Minarets, Cry Freedom, Typical Situation, and Pig all in one show. Awesome energy, I wish they would come back to OKC.

Great show for my first. Old songs with One Sweet World and Minerets (awsome!) and some new ones. Watchtower was what I'd hoped it would be. I'm hooked.

3rd row seats in the OKC!! Stayed with Bruce and Judy and saw a great concert!! On to Dallas next!!

The BEST Watchtower I've ever seen/heard. It was SICK

User: JulzVern
Review:
They finally made my hometown!!! Amazing preformance for OKC. OKC crowds are usually not very energetic but they were defintely pumped for Dave and it reflected in their preformance. I have to say Stefan playing the Star-Spangled Banner on his bass was the highlight of the show. Crowd went nuts. Only disappointment was he didn't play Lie in our Graves, but he more then made up for it with his preformance on Greystreet.

Ya know, the Ford Center is a terrible venue for DMB to play. Indoors and too big. The show was ok, but would've been lots better if it were somewhere else.

First Show after being a fan since 94. They never came to Oklahoma, And I couldn't afford to go anywhere. So to say the least this was a religious experience for me

my 2nd dave show, it was pretty good but the guys didn't jam as much as i would have liked them too, they played for 2 1/2 hours. i was disappointed when the final song was "what you are" not as amazing as my first dave show but still a great show

I have seen DMB four times and this by far was the best show!!! Dave was really into the music tonight, because if he wasn't on the mic he was dancing around the whole stage...it was really amazing. It started out nice and loud with "dont drink the water" and for a nice suprise right after went into satellite. There were two highlights of the night...the first when it went from crash to say goodbye to warehouse and the minarets into typical situation. Dave also did this awesome African chant at the end of minarets which was unbelivable. Grace is gone was also a crowd favorite...as well as one sweet world with the intro. The closer of the set was all along the watchtower with stefan doing his version of the star spangled banner. When they came back out to the crowd they played cry freedom and an awesome version of what you are. GREAT SHOW!!!

Second show I attended this week. Great show, significantly different setlist from the show in Little Rock two nights earlier. My only tiny complaint is, what's up with this one encore thing? Paul McCartney came out for three, I believe, and he's an old guy! :-) Of course, Paul McCartney didn't go off on 10 minute jams on some of his songs either. :-)

Well, what more can I say besides awesome. Boyd was a little off-key at the beginning of Don't Burn the Pig but besides that it was superb.
