So excited to hear Hello and Sugar Will. Plus they played my hubbies 2 favorites; When the World Ends and Granny. Loved it.

This was my first show. It was awesome and the guys exceeded all my expectations. I wasn't close enough to the stage but...oh well I enjoyed the set list. Grace is Gone and DIDO stand-out as sounding especially good. I really enjoyed New song #4 in the encore. I hated to hear Stay only because I knew that was going to be the last song. I'm embarrassed to admit that I did yell at the stage (as if) for them to play Pig. The best part was when I noticed that Dave's kids were watching from the side stage. I am the mother of twin girls and a son and my kids mean the world to me, so at the risk of sounding really corny, seeing Dave being a great Daddy while simutaneously treating his fans to an awesome show increased the CRUSH I have on him by 100%.

It was amazing. The new songs sounded a little bit like country but I liked it.

Not bad for the first night of the tour. The crowd was into the show but not electric. The highlights for me where Warehouse, Grace is Gone, and the four new tunes. It will no doubt be a great tour.

I have to say that I was very suprised by this show. Leroi was awesome, it was one of the times i have seen him on top of his game. the jams were awesome. new songs always a bonus. we were also in a warehouse row and the people next to us were cool. some empty seats around so plenty of room. have to say this ranks at the top of list for shows i have seen. cant wait for the tapes to come out. whoever were the two tapers at the front should have great audio. BTW- to the girl sitting next to us, we were the two from carbondale, email us.

i loved the real-time titles New Song 1, New Song 2, New Song 3 and New Song 4! It was almost a game for the diehards to figure out the real titles of 1-4 before the general public

Pretty good show. Expected more for a tour opener. Was not dissatisfied though. O.A.R. was a great opener.

The show was great.. I especially liked hearing Rapunzel and the four new songs, I was a little disappointed with the ending of Stay because it was a little predictable but overall they did an excellent job. The audience, however, sucked. Why pay to go to a concert that you are going to talk all the way through? I was surrounded by teeny booper girls on their cell phones waiting for Ants Marching or Crash to played. Hopefully these people decide to stay home during the Bonner Springs concert and let real fans enjoy the concert to the fullest.

It suprised the hell out of me. This was the 8th show I've have seen...and I think it was within the top two. I saw them a year ago today, june 17th at columbus. To tell you the truth, they have improved quite a bit. They sounded as if they were playing together live for the past three months (exclude the new album) The show was freakin awesome...and their new stuff is the shiznit.

This was my first Dave MAtthews Band show and it was the best concert i had ever been to and i plan to go when they kick their 2005 tour off again and i plan to see them when the end their 2005 tour.

Great show, but I was alittle dissapointed. I attended the show in Bonnor Springs last summer and it almost seemed like the same set-list. Songs that they played both times were: Too Much, Granny, Grace is Gone, WWYS, Stay, Crush, WTWE, and I DID IT. Granted going to multiple shows you will hears songs more then once (which I love), but I was looking for alittle different set list for the new year. That being said, This show was amazing, UMB Pavilion BLOWS the venue in Kansas City out of the WATER!!!! I liked how the lawn stays on the lawn (unlike KC), how some of the seats are covered (unlike KC), security actually did there job and not let people that didn't pay for seats stay and bug the people that did pay for seats (unlike KC). You get my drift. Finally got to hear Warehouse and Repunzel live. The 4 new songs were great, and it sounded like they have been playing them forever. OVERALL: great show, but needed to change set-list a bit.

This was my first tour kick-off and it was great. I made the trip up from Birmingham, AL and was ready to just blow off my job and stay on tour. THe new stuf was great, but hte highlight for me was probably "Help Myself." The crowd was great and the atmosphere was good. Out of ten, this one is probably an 8.5

Turned out to be a solid show with the debut of a few gems (Sugar Will, Hello Again, Joyride, etc). Also, the first show I would see with the woman I would eventually marry!

This was my 2nd DMB show. I thought it was really cool that they debuted four new songs on us. The couple of songs that i remember standing out were Granny and Rapunzel. Granny was by far the best version i have ever heard of it. Rapunzel, my favorite, was amazingly fast and crazy.

Awesome. The entire night flowed from song to song. Dave was into the show and so was the entire band. The new songs are awesome, is this guy just a bottomless pit of talent of what?

Great show! I loved hearing the new songs...although, I do believe that they are in the beginning stages. I'm anxious to see how they (new songs) have evolved by the time I see DMB in August (Kansas City). Additionally, Dave's performance was a bit "lackluster" compared to his attitude/actions @ Dave and Friends. But, boy did he sing his heart out!

I had never heard of Dave before this show. My friend had an extra ticket and asked me the morning of the show if I wanted to go. I said yes, even though I wasn't sure if I'd like it. When we got there, we set out a blanket and just chilled... it was great. The first band on was awesome... the lead guitarist played a lap guitar and was very blues oriented... I love the blues. Anyways... Dave and the band blew me away and I have been a fan ever since. I will continue to go to shows and I hope that I can get this one (but it needs a reseed :( Let's hope for the best!). I will never forget this show!

First show....I couldn't have asked for a better show to start out on...4 new songs!!! Holy...

User: thecoleorton
Review:
first off i'd like to thank whoever put this tour together for finally having great openers for this summer. I missed O.A.R. at the Blue Note earlier this year, and to see them open for Dave was awsome. The highlight of the show was The Band road testing 4...count 'em...4 new songs for the first time ever! How awsome is that. He touched on almost all studio albums except Some Devil, which I suppose was due to the fact that he was with The Band, and had played the heck out of the during the D&F's tour over the winter. Along with Warehouse, Granny, and Help Myself...which are always a favorite of mine. I was a little dissapointed we didnt hear So Damn Lucky or Stay or Leave, but that was covered up by playing another 'happy tune' with Grey Street. Steffan's slide guitar intro to Grace is Gone was incredible. For the encore, the new song was great...a little more mellow than i would suggest for the first song of the encore, but still it was a new song...so I'm not complaining. Still, Stay was a typical closer, yet it always makes sense for a closer. Anyways, a great night, and with this being my 3rd show, I cant wait to see him when he comes to Bonner Springs in august later this year. Thanks for the great night. ~Cole O.

Great time at the show!! As everyone before has said, the new songs were great and its always nice to hear the band's new stuff. They always amaze with thier new material. Cant wait to hear what the new songs sound like in kc after some time to clean them up and possibly work in some more jams. See you in KC!

I went with Ryan Jansen from Quincy and we had lawn seats but then were escorted in a golf cart to the handicap section. Great show!

Glad that I got to see the tour opener, and loved the new stuff, but would have liked to see a little bit better setlist as compared to last years tour. Can't complain though...I got to go

I had a really good time. I've been waiting since Febuary for this show, and it was worth it! 6th row was unbelievable. Dave's voice sounded really good, Leroi was the man tonight, Boyd sounded great. Around me the crowd was really into it. The only bad thing is how strict the security is at that place, if you held your phone up they were on you in seconds telling you to put it down.
Really good show! It's going to be a fun summer!
