Great show!!!!!! I couldn't wait to hear the studio versions of the new tunes Joyride, Crazy-Easy, Sugar Will, etc.! I had an amazing time and Jimi Thing was the highlight of my entire life!

First off... What a weekend!!! This weekend was a reminder of why Alpine is the best venue in the midwest hands down! Night one had an edge probably because of the superfreak, and a lil better crowd participation and hearing the new ones all two nights in a row. But... Night 2 was still maybe in my top 5 shows! DIDO "I'll just make up a new god, and we'll have a funky lil tea party of our own"! I called a DDTW opener, great great great seek up as always, good jimi, always love stay I always think of alpine when I hear stay, you just don't want to leave that place... and in fact with the parking lot you can't sometimes... Although i've learned the tricks to a quick exit hehehe... anyways... dixie chicken crash, and a good encore to boot, i like crazy easy so I'm not complaining like everyone else about that and a great billies closer! Time to mark the calendar for alpine next year, wouldn't miss it for the world!

2004 was one of my favorite tours. Crazy Easy, and Sugar Will stood out for me, and I will always think of this tour when I hear them (as I should). This particular version of Crazy Easy is one of my favorite DMB recordings EVER.

DMB + Alpine Valley on August 8th, 2004 = One amazing show. The set list could've been altered a bit but other than that the band put on a great show. Not only was the show good, but the people around us were awesome and that just added to the experience. It's much better than being next to a couple loud, obnoxious drunks that don't know how to shut the hell up and have a good time. Also, as far as the whole VOTE FOR CHANGE goes, I thought Dave went about it in a very "non-pushy" way. He could've walked out and preached to the crowd about how President Bush is evil, but instead he just simply made sure everyone knew they could register to vote at the venue. Anyway, back to the setlist...anytime the band opens with DDTW, you know it's going to be a hell of a concert. This was the first DMB concert I attended and I'd go back in a heart beat. I owe one of the best nights of the summer to them, and rightfully so. If you ever get a chance to see Dave at Alpine - do it!

Wow! This show was amazing. A lot more fast paced songs tonight. Hello Again was amazing, one of my new favorites...WWYS, Billies, Joyride, DIDO were all great to hear...along with Rhyme and Reason, and Jimi Thing!!! Kick A$$ set. Awesome night two at alpine. Crowd was awesome. DDTW was a sweet opener, as always, and One Sweet World, Stay, Lover Lay Down, and SEEK UP, wow!...this was so freakin cool...cant wait till October in AMES!! Thanks again DMB.

this was my 12 and 13th dmb shows and they had to be the best two i have seen. had seats the first night and that just kicked ass.second night lawn but just as good of a time. was very impressed with the new tunes.great mix of some old school and the newer songs.of course alpine valley has produced some the best shows i have ever seen and that venue has never given me and my friends a bad time.

IN MY OPINION: Night two of Alpine wraps up an amazing weekend in August. Although there was just something about it that put it behind night 1, be it: Super Freak...or an amazingly jammy Typical Situation, I would say night 1 just had something more. However, Lover Lay Down, Jimi Thing (can you say "incredible scat solo"?), Drive in Drive Out- definitely supplemented the painfully standard yet still good versions of I did it, WAYG, Fool to Think, etc. If there was anything disappointing about these shows, it was the crowd. When did Dave fans become so self righteous- that suddenly they become the arbitor of set lists. I heard things such as "WAYG is the worst song ever written" and "can't wait for this f***er to end," and things of that nature. Guys, what you get is what you get, and you seem to forget that THEY are on the stage, not you, quit thinking you're better and somehow "one-up'ing" the band for tearing apart their setlist. Also, to all the abusive drunks, next time give yourself a $40 head start and don't buy a ticket, spend it on beer instead, you'll spare music fans the pleasure of your company, get MORE drunk, and STILL not remember what you did the night before. If I see one more self-important, red-faced idiot wearing a quiksilver t-shirt and screaming obsentities simply because he maintains the capacity to do so, I'm going to vomit. And a final message to the random hammered girl that always seems to be behind you when you're trying to enjoy the music.....you can't sing...stop it. The band however, played great- curse those mic problems! Good show!

OK, good show, not as good as night #1, but good nonetheless, but this needs to be addressed...1) Who was the choad that decided to park cars thats way, 3 deep so people were blocked in and left to the mercy of the people parked behind and in front 2) If you want to jump rows to try to sneak your way to the front, be my guest, but when you kick my girlfriend in the shoulder blade, you lost your pass through my area for the remainder of the night 3) If you want to pack into an aisle where your seats aren't, I am cool with that, as long as you don't block my view, step on my big ass dogs, or force me out of my row where i am told all night to get out of the aisle 4) If you are so drunk that you have to piss in a cup at your seat instead of going to the bathroom, more power to you, but when it then gets kicked over onto me and my girlfriend and i are left standing in your piss all night, i will pull you out of your seat and make you sit in it before you are removed from the venue 5) Do not grab my girlfriends breast(s), you will take a nap if you do this no matter how drunk you are and when i hit you in the face, do not ask "What is your problem ?" It should be evident when this occurs. It was a good show, but i had to deal with all of this during it. Please ants, I know we all want to have fun, but lets not do it at other fans/peoples expense. We all paid good money to go to the show and see a group we love, so lets work together to not ruin peoples first impressions of a "Dave" show. If this were my first show, I would not go to another, lets hope some first timers didn't have the same types of experiences. Let me know what you think...Seek up and remember two things. See y'all at the palace

User: Clay Mustapha
Review:
I remember thinking that they were going to play the same set as the year before three songs in. The show was pretty subpar compared to what they usually do at Alpine. Seek Up made up for IDI, but it was a weak version. The loving wings tease sucked because it was ...a tease. Was expecting GGT instead of C-E in the encore but what are ya gonna do.

User: comchris02

What an incredible show. Frist off, it was the frist DMB show I've ever been to; I've been a big DMB fan for a a couple of years, but never had an oppertunity to go to a concert. And what a first concert I pick out to go to. To begin with Alpine Valley is an incredible venue. Althoguh it is tough to compare to a place like Red Rocks, it defently has to be in the top 10 music venues in the country. I just had general admission tickets, but got there right at 4:00 so I was in the first row, right up against the barriers. Jeb was good, Guester was great, and Dave rocked. DDTW as an opener just totally blew me away and although I have seens all of Dave's DVDs, I finally realized just what an incredible experince that evening was going to be. Although there was not a single bad song played all night, Sneak Up was by far the best. Lover Lay Down with all of the lighters was very very cool. Dave's scat skills are becoming more and more tuned as was evident by his rant during Jimi. The band again played all 4 of their new songs duing the show. I'm still not a big fan of Hello Again and Sugar will, but they still might grow on me. Joy ride has a good tune to it, and doesn't kill the show either. Crazy-easy is a very good song though. It sort of has that Pantala Naga Pampa / Rapunzel feel to it and work very much as an operner/encore song. Carter doesn't got crazy on the drums and keeps it simple, but man he holds the beat so tight! I can say that I was really looking for a Watchtower or Two Step closer, but Tripping Billies was out of control none the less. I think a lot of DMB fans (especially the drunks and stoners) seem to loose perspective as to what a world-class event a DMB show is. This show proved that. World-class venue, world class crew, world class band. It really doesn't get any more simpler then that. Thanks for the memories Dave, Boyd, Leroi, Stefan, Butch, and Carter!

User: DJXenophile
Review:
I just read other people's reviews of this show and feel a bit apprehensive about writing my own. I thought the show was great, but in my opinion it didn't have the "umph" of last year's Sunday Alpine show. I will admit, last year's show was my first DMB show, so of course you get that "newbie rush," but I really don't think it was that. I felt like something was missing throughout about 65% of the show...I got this "downer vibe" from both Dave and Boyd. I thought by the 4th song they'd found their groove and kicked it up a notch, but it seemed to dwindle back down again until the latter half or so of the show. And, the encore, to me, seemed a bit weak. All in all, compared to other artists' shows, there's no comparison (except maybe Pearl Jam). But, compared to last year's show, I thought this year was less energetic and less heartfelt. Maybe it was just an off night, and/or maybe they were just tired...I know I would be! And, everyone's entitled to an off-night. Just to clarify, I'm not saying the show "sucked" by ANY MEANS!!! I loved it! (just not as much as last year) Oh, and I agree with the parking lot situation...it DID indeeeeeeed SUCK! It took us twice as long (90 min.!) to get out of there this year as opposed to last!

Could be the greatest DMB experience ever. Unbelieveable amount of energy and a great setlist. Not a big fan of "Loving Wings," but I guess he's bound to play a few tunes I won't like. Again, "Hello Again" was amazing. Wish they'd play a third show at this venue (like at The Gorge). Alpine Valley is an amazing venue, although there are a little too many libs in Wisconsin for my liking (although it's cool that they don't give a shit about drinking in the parking lot).

This show was absolutely amazing. Only my second show ever (I live in Canada and they don't come up here -- Toronto is not Canada). To all the people who think it is their place to criticise set lists/lack of jamming/etc. thank god that you get to see Dave and the boys. If I want to see them I need to drive 12 hours, at least. It was a completely awesome night and as long as I get to see them, they can play whatever f***ing songs they want.

Kick ass show. First time I've heard Hello Again, and I think it rocks. Rhyme and Reason and Jimi Thing were also good. Tripping Billies was an excellent Encore song. Too bad his first Encore was a new song, but other than that kick ass show. If you haven't been to a show at Alpine, beg, buy or sneak your way into the next one, because it is by far the best place to see DMB.

A weekend at Alpine Valley seeing Dave Matthews Band is one of the best times you will ever have. It is really sad to see the people that "bitch" about the set list. Who cares?? No band plays every single song that you want to hear night to night. Go there, enjoy the show, sing along, and most importantly have fun. Anyway, Night 2 was just as much fun as night 1. Personally, I loved night 1 more because of #41, Grey St., and Everyday. But, night 2 was just as good, Jimi Thing (a sweet scat section, Dave was way into the song), Seek Up, and many more. It was a remarkable weekend. One that I'll never forget.

Only if the days were shorter would I love DMB less. Having been to the show Saturday night as well, Sunday night when the lights went down after the encore I found myself staring at the stage, hoping that perhaps they would come out again and play forever. This two day stand was truly amazing. Alpine Valley is incredible. Turning around from the bottom of the lawn and seeing faces and faces, illuminated only by the glow of lighters and the moon... What is it about Dave that draws such a mixed audience? More importantly, what is it about Dave that causes the audience, as individuals, some 45,000 strong, to become united? I don't know. But I love it.

This was my very first DMB show and it was absolutely the time of my life. The set list could have been a little better, but nevertheless the guys came out and provided us and awesome time. There were some people fighting, which was just the most lame thing i've ever seen. Why in the hell would u want to fight there? Besides for the occasional annoying person, everyone was very nice and there to have a good time. I am going to the show in Ames, i CANNOT wait!

After the long wait for tickets for the previous day, today was much more relaxed and an overall good time with center section 26th row tickets released close to when we got there at 1. Getting to see Jem was fun--she's got a really great voice. Meeting her was also fun. I've never been asked by a real singer if I sang in the shower, which was cool. :) Guster rocked it hard for the second night in a row, and getting to meet them was also slick. As for the show, it was good, but not great. The energy was palpable, and clearly came across in the band's playing, but it just didn't stick to the wall for some reason. Stay was incredible, as were the other high-energy songs, which were extremely strong. The Everyday songs didn't get that much response from the crowd, which is fine with me, to be honest. Seek Up was quite the rare gem, and Hello Again was definitely tighter than the previous night's. Dave started to play Loving Wings but had to quit because of massive mic feedback at which point they went into Where Are You Going--you could tell it was supposed to be a full Loving Wings because of Carter's rush to grab his sticks when they bridged. :/ Jimi Thing had a fantastic scat jam, and the Billies closer was a great end to a fantastic weekend. Massive props to Matt. Thanks, bud.

I was the closest I have ever been, 6th row, and it was everything I had hoped especially during that unbelievable scat dave did during Jimi Thing. Thanks to the entire crowd for making it a weekend I will never forget.

One of the better concerts of my life. Funny stories to go with this one too that are too long to go into. Crash Into Me was one of the best concert moment of my life. What was awesome was that when Dave came on to introduce Guster, and pointed to a group and said "they're having fun, they have pot" and told people to go there... That was me, my friends, and the people who joined us.

Honestly, I was disappointed in Dave's 8/8 show- hearing Seek Up, Billies, DIDO, and Joyride were highlights, but maybe I'm unlike the normal Dave fan who likes to hear Jimi Thing, R & R and WWYS- not his best stuff, in my opinion. Beginning the encore with Crazy-Easy wasn't a good choice. Glad we took a roadtrip on 8/5 to Cincy-- finally got to hear BOWA & LIOG :) See you next year!!

This second night was just as wonderful because i had pavilion seats and i could see everything so much clearer. Hello Again just blew me away! When dave just got into the songs for so long and just kept making noises (sorry im not sure how to describe this, i guess you just had to be there) made me laugh so hard it was great. Overall, this was a great conclusion for my summer. However i was so depressed that i didnt get to hear Two Step!!! (For the second year in a row at Alpine!) And i really wanted to hear AATW too! I'm not complaining...these two nights were really one of the greatest.

Great show, had a few new songs that were pretty good, and sound closer to the older stuff than Busted Stuff did (which is a good thing in my opinion)

Another fabulous weekend at Alpine, thanks to DMB! (my 17th & 18th shows in 8 years and 7th time here) The first night was amazing and is currently my 2nd favorite I've attended, right behind 7/25/00! The tribute to Rick James was great to see; Brought to tears by IBYU; Nice to hear Granny again; Always love to hear #41, The Stone, Bartender, Grey Street and Ants; The crowd on Everyday blew me away; Typical Situation, what more can I say!! The second night's energy was electric! OSW, LLD, and Seek Up are always welcome surpises; Enjoyed hearing the new songs again...the band is really starting to jam on them; The scat by Dave on Jimi Thing...WOW!!! Seeing Stella & Grace dancing on the side of the stage was a treat! Alpine never disappoints and I will continue to make the journey from Denver! [btw, would love to see a cd/dvd from the 2 nights released]

my 8th show at alpine, and it was unbelievable. the atmosphere was electric. the most memorable part of our 3 day suare was when Dave uttered some crap about voting for Kerry, and with the help of some friends, we were able to get the entire crowd to erupt into a 'bush' chant. my family is also from South Africa, so i dont want to hear any crap about being a useless uninformed democrat.

This show was awesome. Tripping Billies was a great way to end it. Unfortunately I didn't get to make it to both shows. I missed Dave's version of Superfreak.

OMG, this was the absolute best DMB show I've ever been too!!! It totally blew me away. What a weekend, both were so great but to me, sunday was better!! The best last minute descision I've ever made was to get tickets to this show at 5pm and hall ass up to alpine!!

User: pswan

I can't say I agree with anyone who says this was the best DMB show ever, or even in their top 5 or 10. Going into the show, my expectations were high because (1) DMB always plays well at Alpine, (2) night 1 was such a good show, and (3) they have a week off starting today. Needless to say, the show did not live up to my expectations. When you look back at other shows this tour, this setlist was not much different. DDTW, OSW, and Jimi Thing were all good, but unoriginal. Obviously, I couldn't get too pumped about WAYG, Crash, IDI, FTT, or Stay. I was disappointed with repeats of 4 new songs from night 1. Finally, I was unimpressed with a WWYS closer and Crazy Easy for the first song of the encore. The only highlights for me were Seek Up, Tripping, and LLD. I think DMB tore it up on Saturday and thus were tired on Sunday, so they were just playing to get it over with. Overall, Palm Beach was a better 2-night stand.

Really good show - Alpine Valley is just the most amazing place. First Dave show with my good buds from UW. Had a real blast and even though I think the setlist from the night before would have been better, I think the general consensus is that the crowd energy was much better this second night, so I'll settle for that. Can't wait until next summer!

Second show, and came away a little dissapointed. The energy level wasn't the same as the smaller Allstate Arena (12-21-03). Due to being too far back on the lawn, the crowd noise was often too prevalent, on soft songs like sugar will, and lover lay down. Still a fun show, and enjoyed DMB. Highlights were definately were hello again, followed by JOY RIDE.

Amaaing show. Probably one of the best I have seen. I was out of control during this concert, and the lawn was non-stop partying. Getting out of the parking lot sucks dick though.
