This was an amazing show topped only by DMB's solid performance during the second night at Alpine Valley. I was surprised to hear "Seek Up," which was definitely one of the best songs of the weekend. I was also surprised to hear "Pay For What You Get." The 4 new songs played were big hits with the crowd. My favorite part was the 4 song encore ending with "Ants Marching." DMB surprised everyone with that one. This was a great show!

Good show. Love Sister. Like Break Free. I think I may come to love it as it grows. Heard my first live Pay for What You Get! A really nice Seek Up. Always a good thing. Roi was on it! Dave was dancing. Boyd was prancing. And Carter was smiling. Butch did a little scatting. Rashan had some nice moments on Crush. And Stefan looked like he was having the time of his life and smiled through the night. It was warm and humid though. Dave soaked through his shirt and so did I. The sky was cloudy but the nice young man behind me was kind enough to show a half moon while stumbling over the seats. There are rumors that some alcohol was involved. All in all a good night!

Great show! Good to be back at alpine. The energy was unreal. By the end of concert, i could hardly stand up from jamming out for 3+ hours. Highlights were the tour debut of Seek Up, SMTS > Too Much, and the amazing 4 song encore. New stuff sounded great. Super performance!

This show was my 5th time seeing the band, and it was definitely a bit of a letdown. Very standard fare for the past few years. One Sweet World was a very disappointing opener, but it's still a beautiful song. The closing run of Crash through Louisiana Bayou was ugly. Otherwise, however, the show was very solid. One Sweet World, Rhyme & Reason > Seek Up, Pay For What You Get, Crush, and Seek Up are all excellent, and were the clear highlights. R&R was extremely fiery, Seek Up was incredible, and Crush and Ants were extremely fun and had loads of energy.

this show is hard to write a review for, the band was jamming, the crowd was singing, setlist was really weak for an alpine show but they played their asses off for every song. highlight songs, seek up, pay for what u get and crush was amazing, i thought for sure it was over at crush they wouldnt end the song and then continued to a 4 song encore....all in all for show number 27 it was OK

This was one of the best shows I've been to. The energy was fantastic (crowd and Dave) "Can't Stop" is an amazing new song. This show would have to give the show at Bonnaroo last year a serious run for it's money. Can't wait for the new studio album and hopefully a copy of 7.1.06

As always a great show with alot of great tunes! It was nice to hear some of the new stuff, Kill the King and Sister are both great songs. He was fired up dancing and having a good time like Dave does at Alpine he calls his favorite venue to play.For the first time in 11 shows I have seen him they did 4 songs on the encore that was pretty neat, and the addition in Rashard Ross and Leroy together was awsome the way they played together. Boyd and Carter each also had some solo time that was kool too! Cant wait till tonights show, seee you all there!! ChadWagner

The One Sweet World really got the crowd moving. The sound was a little soft to begin but got louder as the show went on. A lot of the radio hits played very well. The Seek Up was easily the best in several years with some old school wailing. Then the rare, Pay For What You Get, was a really nice surprise. The new songs were great. The 4 song encore with a nice version of Crush really rounded out the night well. Met some cool people that I hung out with before and after the show. Good times.

woooo!! something about this show was soooo tight. people had setlist complaints but I thought the overall performance was solid and that's more important to me, it drew me in. they were having so much fun onstage you can tell it truly is one of their favorite / most comfortable places to play!

All in all definitely an enjoyable return to Alpine Valley. We left D.C. at around 9pm Friday, arrived Saturday mid-morning, and left for the return trip at about 2am Monday after the 2nd show. This review covers both shows. The highlights begin with the songs I’ve never seen live before: Pay For What You Get, Proudest Monkey, The Last Stop, and Sister. All were terrific. The new songs are just awesome too; I’m really liking Can’t Stop more and more and hope they tie it into either Smooth Rider or Last Stop (how cool would it be for him to change the last line of the song to “…and it’s the last stop” and then blast into it?). Also cool over the two days: fantastic performances of Seek Up, Jimi Thing, Bayou, Crush (Rashawn is killing on that song), Ants (despite a mammoth lyric f-up), and Nancies -> Warehouse -> Typical Situation (here’s to hoping they turn that duo into the regular trifecta). And now the bad: first off, thank you for playing all the crap songs you’ve been playing during this tour on the first night. It really set things up for a phenomenal setlist on night two. Before I list them, I preface it by saying that they’re crap for one of three reasons: (1) they’re entirely overplayed either on the radio or live; (2) they just aren’t that interesting and leave no room for improvisation; or (3) they are the type of song that draws out a crowd only looking for said song who will talk or go to the bathroom during something truly great (quote from the girl in front of me during Seek Up: “What is this?”). These songs include Hunger for the Great Light, What Would You Say (these two are tied for my most seen songs lives), When the World Ends, Too Much, Crash, and Where Are You Going. I’m getting a little sick of Stay too, and especially would rather have heard anything else in an encore. I think that night two definitely blew night one out of the water, with the exception of the encore. And now the bad part two: if you are on the lawn and we either made physical contact during the shows, or I could hear your voice during any song, at any point, I despise you. Some of us go to CONCERTS to listen to MUSIC. Dave shows are NOT an event made solely for you to drink in the parking lot and scream in the venue. To those of you who tried to walk between my buddies and I, who were standing shoulder to shoulder in what should be a low-traffic area, and we did not move after you physically tried to separate us, please take an example from those who said “Excuse Me.” We moved for them without a peep. To those of you who are satisfied at Crash, please keep in mind that some of us would like to hear the intricacies of the quiet solos in Seek Up without your ruminations on life at 120 decibels. I don’t mind if you don’t know the music, just listen to it. And stop chanting for Two Step. If they want to play it, they'll play it. I don't want to hear it half-assed because of you losers screaming for it. The music is what it’s about, I saw some phenomenal performances, and I can honestly say the 1,700 miles of driving was well worth it. Especially if the current rumors (that the Alpine Valley Music Theatre will be torn down within the next year) are true. I can also honestly say that it’s time for DMB to raise the ticket prices. We need more people who care about the music, and less people who don’t have a clue what manners are. Four shows down, four to go! See everyone in NYC and Charlottesville.

The show started off kinda roller-coaster ish with a high energy song followed by a slow one. It improved from there on out though and a four song encore was not only my second one of the summer, but awesome as well. Did not expect to hear Crush that late in the show but loved it. A good show, but left feeling like Sunday's would be bigger/more energy.

All around a great show. Too many radio songs, but the set still rocked. Seek Up was the high point for me personally. SMTS–>ASTB–>Too Much got my blood flowing as they always do, and HFTGL and Bayou and two the of best from Stand Up. With classics like Crush, Ants, Rhyme and Reason and Jimi Thing I can’t complain. Dave and Butch’s scat argument was sweet. The guys brought a ton of energy tonight and the crowd was stoked. Boyd was all over the stage, Fonzy was having a lot of fun and Dave’s shirt was soaked thru (it was really humid that night.) Four songs in an encore is awesome!!!

The setlist was great, the energy was high, Rashawn can blow, Butch can scat, the new songs didn't disappoint, Dave & Boyd still got some moves, and Dave's storytelling never ceases to amaze. Loved the story about his sister and when they played together as kids, they use to pretend his heart jumped out of his chest and into hers, and her heart would jump out of her chest and into his! Great segue into the sweet new song, "Sister"!!!! Plus a 4 song encore!!! NICE! Alpine IS the best!!!!!! :)

User: miles41
Review:
I did not look at any of the setlists before this show because I wanted to be surprised. Well, first off, the Warehouse got me fifth row, center section seats. I was so perplexed by the concept I could hardly grasp it. Dave could have spit on me if he wanted to. Anyway, before the show, he was off stage a bit after he introduced the opening band. There were not many of us in my section yet, so he was looking around. Then, like a dream, him and I made eye contact and I pointed to him and gave half-crooked smile and he did the same back to me. The best moment of my 24 years. I also want to acknowledge Marissa who sat next to me and was amazing to be next to, and also Shawn who sat in the row in front of me and was celebrating his 24th birthday. And you know it, he got Dave's guitar pick. Good for you Shawn! The setlist resembled those of the past couple of years. However, the new stuff was amazing!! PFWYG was the highlight for me, but Boyd went insane during Seek Up and Bayou. And I do not know how Dave's skats always seem to get better in Jimi, Butch rocked out with him too. Being that close was the best experience of my life and I thank God everyday for DMB!!!!

Good show overall. Loved R&R, Seek Up, & PFWYG. The rest I'd heard before (besides the new stuff which was good. LOVED Break Free & sister!!!), but the 4-song encore rocked!! Definitely the highlight was Crush and Ants. The encore was the only thin about this show that was better than N2 though

Best show that I have been to!! There was a lot of people that were complaining about night 1. The band had the most energy that I have ever seen, and completely rocked out!!! SEEK UP!!! I have always wanted to see this song live, and I finally got it!! Kudos to Alpine!! Best venue I have ever been to. Unbeleivable energy!! The band really feeds off it. Grey Street, Cant Stop--->Crush, PFWYG, R&R--->Seek Up, L. Bayou were all highlights for me. The whole show kicked ass!!!! Will definetely be back for BOTH nights next year. Heres to Alpine!!!

Well, my car broke down a mile before we got to Alpine and so my friend Michelle and I missed the first 3 songs. But even though I was in a semi-shitty mood the rest of the night, it was still very good!

Loved the show! The energy was amazing, both from the crowd and the band. I was really into the new songs, especially Break Free and Kill the King. The jams on Jimi Thing and Louisiana Bayou were insane! All-in-all, a fantastic night!

Amazing! Much love to The Warehouse for my front row upgrade tonight! Time stood still for three sweet hours amongst what seemed the best of friends. Thanks Dave for the experience of a lifetime!

This was my first ever Dave show, I thought it ruled. I was alittle wreaked from parting the night before, but the energy was amazing and Dave rocked out.

Great show. Wish I was not on the lawn. The crowd was drowning out the music, the monitors were not working and I was standing in front of DMB "Did you know... Guy" Ex. "Did you know Stephan joined the band at age 16." "Did you know Dave is from South Africa." Yeah, annoying.

Wrnt to this show spur of the moment on Saturday at noon, took my Harley. Hooked up with John and Aggie had a great time watching the show with them. the set list was great and the band had lots of energy. I enjoyed when the crowd carried Dave when he screwed up in Ants. Always have a good time at Alpine and so does the Band! Dave's stories were great too.

Where do I start talking about this show. It was all i could have asked for. Umphreys Mcgee played one of their best sets i have ever seen and then dave followed it up with a pretty memorable performance. Highlights were pfwyg, seek up, jimi, and ants. I've been to alpine both nights since 03 and heard ants for the first time and loved it. I love break free. The only let down was hearing crash, crush, wayg, and wtwe in the same show. See everyone tomorrow

Not as good as night 2 but then again I dont know if that is possible. Seek Up and Grey Street were my favorites and I had pretty nice seats this year which made the Seek Up intro amazing to watch.

A very up and down energy show. The flow was off because of it. They played some great stuff. But too much of slow>>fast>>slow. Alpine tailgating is really off the chart tho. Still glad I went.

This was my 7th show and it was definately one of the better ones I've seen. This also was my first time to see Dave at Alpine so that just added to the great experience. My first time hearing PFWYG, just love the main guitar riff in that song. Seek Up was never a big favorite of mine, but after tonights show, that attitude quickly changed. Most other songs were pretty standard and the new songs are sounding pretty good. Here's hoping for an even better show tomorrow.......LAST STOP :clap:clap: LAST STOP :clap:clap:

Unforgettable night. Was sitting next to someone very famous and very cool as well and besides digging the show we had a blast. Things like that don't happen often.

Show was great, had a great view of the stage, the sound was great, i also was in the arena early enough to hear the band warm-up with the Last Stop. During the warm up we were warned not to go on the lawn, because Dave dislikes when people go out on the lawn and listens to them warm up. He, in the pass, actually has told people to clear the lawn.
