Great show, O.A.R. as an opener is great. This show is great to go to, because I say that all the hardcore fans are there. And this show had a great 41 so that made me happy. Thank You was also great, and I love the song The Maker. I was not so lucky sneaking down to closer views, but it was still a great seat.

Haven't been to the Gorge or DMB show since 2000 and Sunday night was the best show I've ever been to.

well it was our first trip to the gorge and absolutely nothing disappointed!! 3 amazing shows with sunday taking no prisoners with some of the best jamming the world has produced. the tribute to leroi was incredible(friday with the band taking notice was breathtaking) aa unique experience that im overwhelmed to have been a part of. p.s. i do hate glow sticks though! thanks to the band AND CREW!!!!! for everything the best vacation ive ever had!!!! the interpolations that jeff puts in are awesome and go suprisingly unnoticed like the benny hill theme song during cornbread and the theme to i dream of jeanie that they hit us with on sunday i'll let you all figure the rest out! dave bitching at the douche who hit him with a glow stick was fantastic and well deserved! "whoever threw that I hope you feel like a fucking idiot now!" GOOD STUFF!!!

My 5th Dave show and by far the best. The crowd's energy was unmatchable from the previous 4 shows. They were so loud, Dave didn't even sing most of Ants, the crowd did! Incredible to hear that. The glow stick throwing was nice and good to see, but it got a little out of hand. Someone threw a glow stick on stage, which led Dave to say, "I hope whoever threw that feels like a f**king idiot". All in all, it was an incredible show. From the Seek Up opener, to Tim's crazy solo during Watchtower (with his teeth!!!), to the crowds relentless chant of the Thank You chorus well after the show ended, last nights show was a great way to end the weekend. Can't wait til next year!

After what the band had been through (incorporating Tim Reynolds into the show, Butch Taylor deciding not to tour, Leroi Moore injurying himself, incorporating Jeff Coffin, and dealing with the passing away of Leroi Moore), this was a very good show. A nice mix of music. The show concluded with Thank You which the audience keep singing long after the band left the stage except for Carter Beauford who encouraged the audience to keep singing. WHAT A WEEKEND. Leroi your body has passed away, but your memories will stay with us forever. God Bless!!

I am not sure how I got b12 seat 23... but it was a blessing. My ticket purchase got messed up and I went to will call. I've been going to Dave for years... It IS the band I listen to.. It is what drives my life.. It is what gets me through... and I got great seats. It was an amazing experience..

Great show. From where I was sitting I could see Dave's wife and kids as well as some other mom's and kids. They were behind Boyd for the first part of the show and Dave was hammin' it up for them. As a father of two little ones, it was pretty cute to see.

Awesome show. Finally heard Drive In Drive Out on this tour and it kicked. Warehouse, Lie In Our Graves and Watchtower were an amazing run. Tim again quoted Jimmy Page in Watchtower by including Jimmy's Stairway to Heaven solo in his solo on Watchtower. Then he played with his teeth! Thank You was so much fun. We stayed in our seats for 20 minutes chanting until we were threatened with arrest if we didn't leave. (Buzzkill anyone?) What a night!

Great night! Sat in B8. Dead center on Dave's mic. Couldn't ask for better seats on an incredible night. SDL is an absolute monster with Tim on it. DIDO, LIOG, Warehouse, Watchtower to close the set? Are you kidding me? Rhyme and Reason also very solid. A little disappointed with Thank You closing, but certainly not enough to put a damper on what was a truly sensational weekend of music for me.

With all of the complaints you hear from the fanbase about setlists, tickets, other fans, etc., I can say that my experiences over the years have been nothing short of incredibly gratifying. I look back on this weekend and the entire year for that matter with an obvious amount of sorrow. Listening to #34 during the encores was really surreal. But I am hopeful that this band will persevere in the spirit of Leroi. It will never be the same, but how sad it would be to not be able to enjoy this music in this environment ever again.

My neighbors were in the top three worst ever at all of my shows. They "sang" loudly from behind me the whole time, usually out of key.
I'll never learn--at the Gorge, unless you're in row 10 or closer, SIT ON THE TERRACES ON THE LAWN!

This show was unreal. Dave told us that his throat was broke, and we listened. The crowd took over during Ants Marching, and could have kept up with Thank You all night long. #41 revisited was a sharp contrast to the heartache we were immersed in on Friday night--Sunday's rendition was truly a celebration. THANK YOU, DMB! We love you all!

Top Ten for sure, might crack top 5. We rushed in to get a good spot on the Lawn and it Rained and hailed on us for 45 Minutes, then the sun came out and by the time the guys came out we were dry.

This was my friends and I first time at Gorge. We saw all three nights. Philly represent!!! It was my 32 show and I am ever so proud to be a fan of Dave Matthews Band. This trip made me realize that I absolutely and truly love this band. Seeing the sympathy from others and myself for the love of LeRoi made realize how much of impact DMB has on me over the last 18 years I have listened to them and the last 10 years I have seen them. From the beautiful somber feeling of night 1 to the superb energy of nights 2 and 3, proves they still have the fire within them. Though the passing of LeRoi (god bless his wonderful soul), I feel that they wanted to do this weekend for him. They put so much effort into each one of their songs. From the heartfelt Proudest Monkey to beautiful Dreaming Tree. Night 2 blew me away. I literally said to myself "They wanted to go out there kick major ass!!". AND THEY DID!!! I LOVE YOU DMB and NEVER EVER STOP!!!!!!!

Great opener with Seek Up, you can't go wrong, the band slowed it down through the middle and then kicked our butts with Watchtower. Thanks for a great weekend.
