Selma show the band was great nice set list this is my home town and my least fav place to see the band I will skip next year in my humble opinion it has a lot to do with the audience. Anyhow love to see Dave dancing and going crazy as much as Stephen grooving around, Boyd is always amazing, Carter and is huge smile, Leroy gave us a nice solo in #41 and last but not least Butch is a real magician.Thank you guys.

Awesome show. The encore was great when they went from So Much to Say to Pantala Naga Pampa leading obviously into Rapunzel.

The Highlight was the encore. After opening the encore set with Digging a Ditch, the band then cresendowed through "So Much to Say, Anyone Seen the Bridge,Pantala", and finished with a rousing "Rapunze. Good rapport between DMB and an appreciative massive crowd!!!

AMAZING SHOW! Nice to see Help Myself on the setlist. Whole last hour or so is a total blurr. The whole band blew my mind over and over again. My boy stefan stepped it up there at the end of the encore. Wonderful to see such a long encore, hadnt seen that from them in a while. I am unfortunately in agreement with 41granny that San Antonio crowds are usually not the best Dave crowds around, I mean "Everyday" at the end of #41 is pretty basic stuff, and everyone is always lookin around askin what the names of the songs are! COME ON PEOPLE!!!! Anyway, despite the crowd one of the best shows and playlists I've seen from the guys and what a way to end!

It was AMAZING!! And I thought the one in Houston rocked! Dave was so great during this show, he really let go and just performed his heart out. Leroi was unbelievable at the end of #41....really overall they gave such an incredible performence of all the songs played. I can't wait for next year!

My second show and I couldn't believe that it would be this good after a disappointing Selma show last year. The crowd was much better than last year. All those newbies must have either matured or went back to their "Matchbox 20" albums. Highlights: Tight, precise "WWYS". The boys brought the funk. Perfect version of stoptime "#41" with lots of "Whoos!" and no noodling. They flirted with "Everyday" but didn't segue like on other shows on this tour. Two big rarities with "Help Myself" and "Sleep to Dream Her." "HM" emptied the stands (it's so rare), but it was a solid. "STDH" was something else (with the trippy-ass video monitor)and gorgeous outro by Roi. "Bartender" was amazing. Brilliant energy peak on Dave's vocalizing and then a beautiful jazzed-out denouement courtesy of Butch. The height of this show was easily "Jimi Thing." Boyd and Roi were all over this, but then Dave starts half-scatting/half-singing and the crowd went apeshit! The pre-encore closer was a non-jammy, but still stellar "Two Step". Props to whoever has been working the visual end of the tour. "Two Step" outro was had the monitor flashing close-ups of the band along with various tripped out images at about the pace of Carter's snare hits. Unreal encore. One quiet one and then four loud ones?!?!? DAD>SMTS>A1STB>PNP>Rapunzel. I still can't believe this happened and for humble little San Antonio? DMB loves their fans. Carter ruled this show. It sounded like the sound guys "phattened" his drums a little, because he came through very pronounced. Stefan opted for a liquid effect on his bass and jumped around with that heavy-ass bass of his. Yeah, he's definitely the youngest member. See you next year!

The greatest show I have ever been to. Dave is a great performer, even when his voice is fading.

5 stars just for the encore and my first row seats! Got there maybe an hour and a half early and bought front row tix for list price! Amazing! I was by myself but I bought two tix anyway so I could bring my friends down from the lawn. What an amazing time! I was ending a relationship at the time with someone who was very special to me. It was a very bittersweet moment and I think it's one of the only times that I have ever felt like that in my life. Anyway, the show was just amazing and it had a great energy. Oh, DMB...please come back to Selma!

The Satellite opener was nice. First time hearing Help Myself, Sleep to Dream Her and What Would You Say. Disappointed with DAD to begin the encore. Heard it in Houston's encore. Too Much into ASB into PNP/Rapunzel was a great and strong way to close the set.

After seeing DMB in Houston a few nights before, then seeing the set list from Dallas (the Texas show that year that I didn't see which included Minarets, Pay For and Last Stop!), I was determined to always see every DMB Texas show. A tradition I started in 2004.

There are never any complaints about DMB shows. They always play full-force, and this performance was no different. Going to a show will make anyone a fan!

Fucking amazing show (although some people really didn't like this one for some reason). Also, sat by Alex and Lori again!

opened with satellite!!!!!! the 2nd half of the show completely blew my mind. they played Help Myself and an absolutely amazing long version of Jimi Thing- the best i've ever heard.

Decent. Not the best show, but I think that was the amphitheater, and not DMB.

User: larnerlaw
Review:
Great show. I really liked the combination of 41, Two Step, and Jimi Thing. Not many shows can boast all three songs. Plus, Satelite was a nice opener.

One of the best DMB shows I've seen. Even the lawn seats are great and put you right in the middle of everything!

What a pimp daddy show. People groaned when DAD started the encore but we were met with a treat with the triple threat. Some sweetass shit. Great show.

Was an awesome show, other than I did it, I'm not a fan of that song at all, I used it for a bathroom break, those Rolling Rocks will make that nessaccary....But I will say, Selma has AWESOME sound, far superior to Starplex (smirnoff) in Dallas. And there are some damn cool people in San Antonio also. I spent the whole night playing air guitar on the lawn, props to the chick with the big tits that came up to me after the concert " you rocked man".

One word: ENCORE!!! wow what an amazing ending to a good show.I have never heard ASTB into PNP like they did it was great. Everyone was expecting Too Much, then they ended it with Rapunzel which got the crowd really into it. Highlights of show were an extended Jam on Jimi thing with a Charlie Brown tease from Butch, a nice Help My Self and Granny were thrown into the mix. Disapointments: The fight that broke out right next to me in the grass, the crazy techno dancers infront of me, and crash into me (I think the radio has ruined that song for me, but the teenie boppers enjoyed it.) Overall, Lots of Acoustic guitar :) with lots of good old classics from the guys.

Absolutely amazing. Best concert I have ever been to in my life. The energy there was palpable, and you could see how much fun the band was having in their faces (and in the 5-song encore :).

This show was by far the best of the Texas shows, even with the appearance of "Sleep to Dream Her" and the second(?) playing of "I Did It" this tour. I was going to say that everything after Stay was phenomonal, but then looking back, opening with "Satellite" was just perfect for the night. I hadn't seen "So Right" this tour, so it was great to see. My favorite part was the encore. How could you not love listening to the Bridge into PNP? Overall, this show goes into my top ten.

Whew! DMB concert #3...and my favorite. Well the setlist was to die for, granny, bartender, rapunzel, #41! just incredible! My first dave concert that I really, "took a taste of what's mellow" The atmosphere at Dave concerts are just unwordly, people so happy and chilled out, that's the way life should be. I know DMB has forever changed my life. I like to think of my story is similiar to "rhyme and reason" It's may drug "please leave this needle in my vein my friend" And the great thing about DMB fans is that all of em feel this way, right guys? This concert really spurred my obsession, since then I have been to 6 more DMB concerts, aquired all albums, live and studio, and It's all "so right". I am just so happy that I found DMB, and it plays a giant part in my life...PS. I would love to chat with some fellow DMB enthusists, so please let me now. Adios!
