I didn't think anything could top night 1 but night 2 was absolutely unbelievable!!! Solid Everyday/36 opener, Stand Up was crazy!! so much energy, same with the Too Much closer. Jimi Thing was crazy as usual and You Never Know was nice to hear again. Crush was a MAJOR highlight as was the 2step encore closer, but the best part of the evening in my opinion was the Nancies->Warehouse->Norwegian Wood->SAWG, it was awesome to hear Butch and Cater go off!!! Great show, great weekend, Alpine '05 will not soon be forgotten!!!

I went to both nights in Alpine and many argue that the second night was better than the first, I am torn between the two because they were both amazing. This shows highlights I felt were Crash and Crush.

WOW!!!! I guess i got all the numbers this weekend! First night, 41, second night, 36(everyday), 34 (which has come to life for the first time on this tour), and finally #40 with lyrics! i have wanted to hear it so bad and he teased it earlier in the night and i thought there was no way he'd play it later on! i love alpine, and i hope that dave never stops playing here!

The 2nd of two great shows that complemented each very well. The band had an uncanny energy that shone through in instances such as #40 (in addition to #34 which allegedly had not been on the setlist according to the road crew). Additional highlights definitely included Stand Up, Jimi Thing, and Too Much. Two step was a great closer to top off the weekend as well. I was also glad to see that obscenely loud and offkey drunk girl could make it this year (and managed to sit behind me again) as well as depressing drunk guy who makes 20-30 trips to the nearby beer tent (never fails to obstruct your attention from the stage). They're always key to any show and glad they could show up this year as well to make my $55 worth it.

First DMB show I've been to, definitely not the last...just starting to get into it more hardcore, but I knew the significance of hearing #40 and #34 at the time, though it was so loud I didn't recognize #40 at first. Great energy from the crowd. Two Step and Warehouse were amazing, too

I don't even know how to review a show like this. I had wonderful seats and was able to see this show with one of my favorite DMB friends. There were more than a couple times when I physically had to sit down to calm myself, slow down the pulse and catch my breath! The show was even better than the set list lets on. #34, #40, Nancies and Warehouse, Two Step...what more can we as fans ask for?

The ABSOLUTE BEST DMB SHOW EVER!!!!!!!! It was non-stop craziness. I brought my two younger brothers and it was their first DMB concerts. My youngest bro can't stop talk'n about it. The Crowd blew me away and Dave and Co. responded accordingly!! The crowd blew DMB away during the oncore break. The crowd was very together in clapping. Dave even clapped along for a short period, then he stopped and laughed. We got one more loud clapping session through while the whole band was on stage. You could see the amazement in the bands faces during this. Me and the crew around me got a TWO-STEP chant started and it carried throughout the theatre. Only to be blessed with E2 spot with non other than TTWWOO--SSTTEEPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just the very best shows ever! Look at the two nights....you can't beat the setlists! I would pay a fortune to have the hand written setlist to these shows. by the numbers for the last two nights... 41,36,34 and.....!!!40!! then by the names... OSW, Say Goodbye, Rhyme and Reason, LIOG and BOWA! That was just Saturday. Everyday, Nancies->Warehouse, Jimi Thing, YNK, Crush and Two Step! I would argue with anyone that this is, by far the Best Venue to date in 2005!! A Must see and a must hear!!! Also for me it was great meeting some people that we all know, or have seen, on this site! Thanks Damian for enriching the great Alpine experience..can't wait to see what comes up!!

all i have to say is that alpine kicks the asses of all other venues. This show was amazing. #40, YNK, and #34 were debuts for me. I was so happy to hear him play these. Jimi Thing was so amazing...i was hopin for the buffalo springfield outro and sure enough got it. Right before nancies got over all i could say was please play warehouse and sure enough they did. Stand Up is a beast live...possibly my fav. new song live. Two Step just seemed like the perfect song to play to close out the weekend. Thank you dmb for another great summer of concerts.

Not only the best DMB show I have ever been to, the closest I have ever been to the stage at any show (row 15) and one of the top 5 experiences of my entire life. Being there beside my wife, both of us dancing, singing the whole time, amazingly getting to hear ALL of our top 5 DMB songs during the weekend (2 step, Nancies, Jimi Thing, Lie in Our Graves and Crush). Words cannot describe how awesome the concert was. If only I could bottle the way I felt for those 3 hours and bring it out any time.

My first show. Great setlist. Jimi Thing was great. #34 and You Never Know made it worth the ticket price alone. Those are two of my favorites. Crush was well done too. Revival of #40 was a special treat. Two Step encore was perfect closer. Very hot summer night. Lots of Alpine fun. Thanks DMB!

Wow wow wow! Not only did I recieve a 34 but a 40 as well. What a scorcher outside. It was a blast to walk around and meet and greet with what seemed to be a lot more WH'S and Ants fans I've ever met in one show. I was at the show the day before as well but this show had everyone up in arms! I really hope this show can be turned into a live release one day. The setlist was great just as good as the prior night. I honestly think this was my favorite Alpine DMB show I've ever been to. It almost seemed as if it was never going to end. Everyone who saw this show in my opinion was treated to something really, really special this evening. Ya'll take care now. Remember to only leave your footprints behind you.

I didnt think that my weekend could get any better after the saturday concert with the opening of #41, but that sunday night show blew saturday far away. These were my first two DMB concerts and all i can say is that they are possibly the greatest live band EVER! This Alpine visit needs to be turned into at least a Cd and it should be a DVD! The energy from the band and the crowd was just too damn amazing. I have never seen dave dance like he did thbis weekend. Hope to see you all there next year!

Great show! Wasn't expecting much based on previous setlists from the tour, but the band really proved me wrong, one of the, if not the best shows I've seen. The only disappointing moment of the evening was when the band came back on stage after a along encore break, only to play "Old Dirt Hill." This was quickly made up for by Two Step, which ended the show in a way that left the audience stunned. Highlights: #36 intro/outro, Nancies, Warehouse (NW!), #34, Crush, #40, Two Step

I am still in shock over what an amazing concert DMB played on Saturday and Sunday.. After Saturday's blow out i did not think anything would be able to top it. However during the first three songs of Sunday's show i already knew it would be better.. The band tore it up and thrived off of the crowds energy and intensity. It had to have been the best show of the year, regardless if every inch of my body was dripping in sweat! There are no individual highlights because the whole thing was THAT amazing....I need to download this one! The Atlanta Brave chant was somewhat creepy and intense...DMB TORE IT UP! I LOVE THEM FOR THIS! I wish they knew how much we all appreciated the work the put into this show...Throwing a beautiful and much unexpected #40 in there with #34..both not originally on the set list just made the night even more grand...

I had just witnessed my first DMB concert the night before and wasn't sure if it could get better and believe me it was much better the second night. Had many friends who couldn't stay for the second show and did they miss out. The set list was very much reminiscent of "The Central Park Concert." The finish with "Two Step" was mind-blowing. Alpine Valley is one the best.

This was my first Dave show. I went with a friend to meet my gf at the show. We left from Ames, IA at 11am without tickets and sat if traffic for 2 hrs just 2 miles from the venue. We missed O.A.R open but were there in time to get two of the last tickets and see the show. It was an amazing show. ALL dave's songs were amazing but i'd have to say that Crash, Crush, and Two Step topped my faves.

unbelievable... as good as the setlist may look on paper, it doesnt even begin to describe the show. started off so mellow and nice with ED, Crash and DG, then stand up, shit that song is money live. dave was dancing like crazy, the crowd was feeding off him. hunger was superb live, dont care what anyone says but these new songs all impress and then some. nancies warehouse was ridiculous, boyd on fire, norwegian wood? shit! even steady was incredible, daves conviction was incredible. i never thought his voice would be in such great shape, he handled ynk like a pro, song blew me away, its on an entirely different level. 34, beautiful. they were about to close with WWYS (which was even outstanding), fonzie took off his bass, then dave kinda stopped, they talked by the drums, dave came back and dropped my jaw with a short but sweet #40, the too much. fuck. old dirt hill translated real well live, and two step owned. the energy all night was intense, daves vocals wonderful. what a night.

I was completely blown away. Easily in the top 3 of my 15 shows, perhaps even the best. The crowd was indescribable--so into every moment. And the band was just as thankful to be there as we were--despite the awful heat. How can you top #34 & #40 in the same show (and #41 and #36/Everyday the night before!)? A truly magical night I will treasure for many years. My brother had 2nd row and threw Dave a yellow Bong State T-shirt which he laughed at and showed to Stefan. That was a truly unforgettable moment for those of us who camp at Bong every summer for these shows. Thank you to everyone in the band and crew for your hard work. I sure hope this 2 night stand makes it to official release someday.

My first DMB show and I expected it to be incredible. It surpassed my expectations. Now I can't wait to hit another show. For them to open with Everyday and follow it with Crash Into Me, that was great, but to end up playing Nancies and Wharehouse back-2-back, that was perfect.

What a great set, the band brought out a lot of old favorites tonight keeping the crowed absolutly into it. Was pretty hot but that didnt stop the crowd or the band from having an AMAZING night. I would have to say that I couldnt have asked for a better set all the old fav's with a few new classics added in all in all a perfect set.

This show was my 1st live DMB show. They played #34 which was awesome and we gotr a #40. Doubt I will hear that again. Too much Stand Up material though. Yes, I know that it was an album tour, but I am not all that big into SU. All in all, I liked the show and heard some good tunes.

My second show. While it was good to hear like nancies, warehouse, what would you say, etc; it was amazing to hear #34 and #40 in the same show. Jimi Thing was the song that me hooked to dmb so i was glad they played it; the buffalo springfield jam was unbelievable. Two Step was great, tons of energy. Both the band and the crowd had a TON of energy the whole night. What a great weekend. Can't wait for next year.

What a great show! Some people complained about the set list, but you have to expect them to play the new album most. Besides, we got to hear Louisianna Bayou and Dreamgirl which are my favorites. Encore was a little weak, was really looking for Ants Marching or Two Step. They played a lot from Under The Table And Dreaming and Crash which are my two favorite albums. It is never a bad show at Alpine and by far the best performance of the night was Bartender, I found myself just staring in awe. Can't wait for next year!

.....son of a bitch! What can I say that has not already been said? If this show is not considered for Live Trax 5 I will be very suprised. Again, the band backed off of the SU stuff and went completely old school. There were even two repeats of SU songs tonight. UTTAD dominated the weekend. Only three songs off of the album were not played. Where should I start? First off, even though I love the Alpine lawn, I had seats this show and it will be hard if I have to go back to the lawn. Dancing Nancies>>>Warehouse was phenomenal. Boyd went absolutely crazy again during DN. It is great how Dave just backs away and lets others have the stage. The band is so unselfish! It seems as though Boyd has been stealing the shows this tour. I was so hoping for #34 and got it. I just stood there and closed my eyes and soaked it in while the tears welled up. What a perfect instrumental song! Got the first complete #40 of the tour which was amazing. 'When The World Ends' was a great suprise. Dave went nuts dancing during Stand Up. The SU songs are sounding better and better each time. You Never Know was beautiful and Crush was fantastic and the crowd blew up before, during, and after Two Step. I think the boys were trying to kill us all because they had to of known it was the hottest day of the year. I have never felt energy like this or heard a lineup like this on any CD. I was sweating my ass off dancing and singing. I have to apologize to the people around me because I had my shirt off. Could not avoid it though. I know I lost at least ten pounds. I also want to thank all of the ladies for looking so gorgeous at Alpine!! I do not think I am going to be able to handle three nights in a row at the Gorge. Oh well! I fucking love DMB. They are all I ever listen to all the time and I am never fucking quiting! Dave and his five good friends are all Gods!! See you at the Gorge!

My first live Dave Matthews Band experience. I think once Jimi Thing hit, I knew this would be special. The crowd was so into the song, and it made me realize this was a special place to be. The musical highlights for me included the Norwegian Wood cover, the ending sequence of Crush, the energy of Too Much, and the quiet transition from Old Dirt Hill into Two Step and the intensity of the jam that followed. I knew after this concert that this was the band for me.

I didn't think they could top night 1, but they did! Crash and Dreamgirl were great. Stand up was awesome, it's so much better live. Everyone went crazy when Dave played the first chord of Nancies then right into Warehouse! Boyd was on fire during those songs. A nice outro of Norweigan wood from Warehouse. #34!!!!! Jimi thing! Crush was amazing as usual. Then Dave teased #40 and finally played it 2 songs later!! after the crowd chanted for it. Old dirt hill and Two Step to cap off an amazing show!

Another Great Alpine Show. How can you go wrong with #34 and #40. Props goes out to Carter and his drum tech for the flawless execution of a snare switch during Crush. Carter played part of the song with one hand, stick in mouth and setting up the new snare only to finish strong at the end of the song. A great show. Next stop The Gorge. See you all there!

Absolutely amazing.. Boyd was en fuego. Carter switched a broken snare during Crush and didn't even miss a beat. This had to be by far the best setlist of all times. The nancies was completely unexpected but absolutely awesome. I called a #40 before the show even started I knew it was coming. Red Rocks will have a hard time standing up to this.... but i'll be there anyways!

"Some people glow, some people sweat like a horse in the middle of a hot field". I was right there with you Dave in the latter. Steamy night, the only thing hotter was the performance. Probably the first set of shows (including last night) that weren't completely Stand Up dominated. Seemed like UTTAD dominated, which is of course never a bad thing. All fans of this band need to take in a show at this venue at some point.

Another great show. Not quite the setlist, but it seemed that the band had a lot more energy last night. #40 was fantastic, and Nancies and Warehouse were sweet. Surprised there was no American Baby or Hello Again OR ANTS (very surprised with no Ants either night), but a great weekend nonetheless.

Interesting encore with old dirt hill, but two step made the night, i have been waiting 4 shows to hear that one live. Alpine rocks, all of you guys there should just enjoy the music! Overall great setlist, great show, and from what i heard better and more energy than saturday night.

What a difference a night makes... I would have been furious if I made a 13-hour drive to Wisconsin to see only this show... thank God for last night... It's weird b/c I am usually fawning in my praise of the band... where to start... Everday is right up there w/ I Did It, Space Between, and Where Are You Going as songs where if I never heard them again, I wouldn't shed a tear... so to open w/ that sucked the life out of it for me... i couldn't believe all of the reviews saying this was the best show ever... you guys obviously didn't go saturday night then ... next up was crash... a painful opening 15 minutes to say the least... nancies and warehouse were top notch... most of the stand up album is very good... but the flow of this show was choppy... too many slow tunes... steady as we go has a time and place... not after showing signs of life w/ 2 solid jams... #34 was nice to hear in entirety for the 1st time... jimi was solid... YNK is good one that i had forgotten about... crush was fantastic... out of my hands is not pleasing to listen to... sounds like you're at a funeral or something... WWYS always decent... #40 was pretty cool to hear b/c they teased it earlier... then another clunker in Too Much to close the set... I mean the crowd is always into it but c'mon dave the past few years you've played this song in about half the shows... way too many for a band w/ so much in its arsenal... finally the encore... i like old dirt hill but i think it sounds better on the album than it does live... and two step is always amazing but by that point it didn't matter... maybe it's unfair to compare this show to saturday but i feel it was lacking that special oomph to make it a great show...
