This was my 2nd show and my 1st at Alpine Valley. The show was good, the set list was pretty good but the new songs were awesome to hear live. The atmosphere was awesome. Everybody tailgating and parting and being on the lawn was an experience. I ran in when the gates opened and got a great view from left center. The sound was good and loud.

Had a good time, how can you not at a DMB show. That being said, I could only go first night at alpine due to my schedule and after having seen the seconds night set I feel jipped. Why dont they play incredible shows every night with incredible sets every night? Its kind of lame.

The sound system sounded off the boys were off.
Worst Alpine show I have seen. Im postitive at least half the spearkers on the left stack were not working. I really hope they make up for it at Deer Creek because that was some garbage. Fix the damn sound mix you bastards it was totally off. Very hard to hear the interplay between jeff and Rashawn because of this. I am a hardcore fan. Very diappointing especially since the last 3yrs have been killer.

Band seemed off, and show was short. Speakers were out or something by the left lawn cause it was quiet and I had to listen to drunks talking as loud as they can. Seriously you a-holes, this is about the music, go back to your frat parties if you wanna get sloppy and annoying. Anyway pavilion on Sunday, to hell with these lawn heathens.

Could never give under three stars for a DMB concert, but the band was tired. Carter and Tim were awesome as usual, but Dave and the rest of the band were out of it towards the end. Also Smooth Rider should never be in a set list again.

Not as good as last year, but overall a good show. Can't really go wrong with dmb at alpine. I enjoyed hearing the new stuff live. Not the ideal setlist, but every song was solid. Although Smooth Rider isn't a favorite, I thought it was a lot better than I expected it would be live and I was pleased. Highlights were Crush (Tim and Jeff's trade-off), SMLAM, LITHOG, and Spaceman>Cornbread. Best version of Cornbread I've heard. Jeff was amazing tonight.

A lot of new songs, SMLAM was excellent. From the Stone on, it was pretty solid, So Damn Lucky is just fantastic live. Grey Street, PNP-->Rapunzel, Ants was a fantastic way to go out. Shorter show...that was a little surprising for Alpine. I was close enough to see that the band was having fun up there. I can't say that they were flat or going through the motions. I don't understand why people sitting on the lawn bitch about things. There are always going to be drunk high school kids acting like idiots, GET OVER IT! Get pavillion seats, it can be done, you just have to put in some effort and watch the boards. I've never had to pay more than face and I've sat in the seats every year here since 2000. Can't wait for Sunday night, it's always the best show at Alpine.

worst experience I have ever had at a DMB concert, and not just because of the weak show/setlist itself. My area of 201 BB far to the left was a complete joke. I thought I was at a Nickelback or Chris Daughtry concert. white trashy, mindless, drunk people who probably had randomly heard funny the way it is on a top 30 radio station and bought a pair of tickets. Two girls got in a fight and threw beer on eachother, some of it consequently landing on my girlfriend seeing her first show (Great first impression, huh). People were barely there for the show. Everyone was bumping into us, moving past us back and forth to go to the bathroom or get more beer, way more than usual.

Luckily, sunday was the exact opposite of the above. Amazing setlist, show, and crowd.

The bad: The return of Smooth Rider?? Really?? Bayou.... man played out by now. More Stand Up material played than Crash.
The ugly: A guy in a Cubs Soriano jersey puking next to us in the pavilion.

A very average to below average show for a venue such as Alpine.

First show since Central Park and 15th full band show overall...by far the worst show/experience of them all. Within the first four songs we had a kid pee in front of us, another puke in front of us, and then just to our left we had another one gratuitously making out with a girl while sticking his hand up her shorts...maybe at 27 i'm getting too old for this?! I know it's sacrilege to be negative about the band on here but i'm that fan who hasn't enjoyed the run of everyday, stand up, & (gasp) Big Whiskey; therefore, it's quite easy to see how I think this was the weakest setlist of the tour thus far. The sound up on the lawn near the top was also terrible as it was not loud enough making it easy to hear all the conversation around you and it went in and out between being full sounding and thin. Never did I think I'd walk out on a DMB show in my life, but I did tonight leaving as Alligator Pie was starting ... and I actually don't regret it as my wife and I were able to avoid all the traffic going home. As much as I hate to admit it, it is now clear to me that the band has continued to evolve and grow in a way that just doesn't do it for me anymore ... such is life.

I was expecting a few more gems after what they dropped on us last year at Alpine. But I can't say I was disappointed. The crowd had a great energy and it was a really fun show. I was glad to see the return of the Smooth Rider, I can't understand why there are some people that don't like that song. Must be my first show ever where they didn't play a sing song from "Crash".

Solid, Conventional, nothing special. Just wasn't feeling it. The guys seemed they still had jet lag and were a little off. In a venue where they usually overwhelm the crowd with their set lists, performance, or unique covers, this time they definitely underwhelmed the crowd and had the DMB devotees leaving disappointed. Throw out Stone, Smooth Rider, & BWGK songs and you have last year's set list. Just play Live Trax 15 again and you have the same concert.

All DMB shows are great, but this one was a little to the point. Dave barely spoke, and they all seemed a bit jet-lagged since they had just gotten back from Spain. Still a really fun show, just not as much of the Dave Speak we are used to. It also helped that we had absolutely fantastic seats with a great view of the whole stage. Thank you WH!

My 8th show at Alpine and 20th overall. What happened? I've never had to work so hard to try and get myself into a show before. The sound on the east lawn was awful - so very quiet. Dave is up there wailing and I was questioning if his mic was even on. No body was singing near us and I think the entire place forgot to sing 'Fools Rush In' at The Stone outro - ugh.

Highlights were Crush, Grey Street and The Stone. All songs I have heard before, nothing too crazy, but great tunes.

This is my 5th year of Alpine Shows and in my opinion, N2 has always superceded N1. I feel that tonight can ONLY be better. I am quite positive that being in the front row of 102 will help too!

Dave Matthews Band concert #27 and counting. The show was peppered with many new songs from Big Whiskey and three songs from the album Stand Up. I'm guessing Mark Batson had something to do with the setlist. The highlights of the Big Whiskey songs included Spaceman, Why I Am, Seven, and Alligator Pie. All very good to hear live. Other highlights of the show included old fan favorites such as Crush, Dancing Nancies, Ants Marching and The Stone. Also the drunken obese baffoon dancing in the row directly in front of us wearing a shirt which said "The bad man punted Baxter" was an unexpected and unpleasant surprise. Also on a side note I don't think I've ever seen so many douche bag White Sox fans in one place at one time and I've even been to a White Sox game at Comisky Park. And of course it woudn't be a show at Alpine Valley without waiting two hours to get out of the parking lot after the concert. Until next time...

Ugg...don't get me started. Out of over 40 shows this is the first one I wouldn't have minded walking out on. Horrible sound, light issues, a crowd that wasn't into it and weak closer.
I'm not a big complainer but this was definitely a low point coming off of the two Vegas shows and what I usually expect from Alpine. I think next year I will fly to SPAC from LA instead of Alpine.

Plus, my extra-disappointing since this was my girlfriend's first Dave show and I was really hoping for a strong showing. Sucks they didn't play You and Me...thanks a lot The Secret.

Crush was good and the Stone after was nice but without a Wise Men crowd the balloon deflated again.

It sounded great - at least what I heard in my passed-out state. Got a little TOO into the spirit of the event...

The band looked bvery healthy and excited to jam. I really liked the set list upbeat and rockin. It was great to be there with Eric, Liz, Mike(3 vergin Alpiners) and Doug. Had a great time!

hmmm...1st off, Welcome Back..to the States and to Apline!
Mixed feelings about the show. Think I stayed so tuned in cause I was 7th row center. Good mix of songs.
Funny was predictable but its starting to grow on me! YMDT, Coffin is def coming into his own. Shake Me Like A Monkey was fun cause thats the sign I brought in (more on that) and there was a bit of a mixup with the lights prior to the start. Smoothrider & Bayou??? yeah, everyone was scrating their heads...Think it left a lot of disappointed fans. Not as good as last years N1 but i'm not gonna complain!!!! Encore was solid and....

I got my stick...rushed to 2nd row and stood up on a chair, showed Carter my sign, he looked, smiled and tossed a stick to me!!! Sign said 'Shake Me Like A with a drawing of a Monkey!!! Clever

I think we all know the one phrase to describe this show: JET LAG

I few surprises... Smooth Rider and Louisiana Bayou in particular... but both of these from the Stand Up album, so what is one to say?

don't understand all the comments about it being a stinker, i had a really amazing time, energy around me on the lawn was fantastic. n2 blew it out of the water obviously but i thought it was a very solid show. loved hearing the stone, rapunzel, crush...LITHOG was sickkkkk

Wow was demand high for the show this year. First time since 202 that i could not come up with tickets. I'll admit i was greedy and based up even a couple pavillion tickets hoping for something better and then ended up with nothing. Listened to the show on the golf course. It sounded great and was an experience in itself. Setlist is on par with many of the average shows this year.

This was an average Dave at Alpine show. Too much going on at the front of the lawn; migrated to the very top and jammed out there. Hearing BTCS songs near the end were sweet.

I thought it was a decent show. Any other venue in America, and this probably would have been a 5. Suffered a bit from the common set list, but the guys did bring some good energy. I love Rapunzel, Stone, etc, so happy about that.

A great first DMB concert. It was very good i thought, and I loved every minute of it.

Worst Alpine show I have ever been to. Didn't seem like the band had too much energy. Stephan even tweeted how jet-lagged he was. Very few solos featuring Boyd or Stephan. First time I was ever disappointed after a show.

Disappointing for an Alpine set. Ants as an encore closer? How cliche.

I personally loved the show...up beat, lots of fast paced songs...I don't think they ever slowed it down. Just seemed to keep on catching energy we loved it!

Im never gonna complain about a show I was at, but if I just saw the setlist without going, I would've thought a little negatively of it, especially for Alpine

My first Alpine experience was everything I thought it would be. As far as the crowd, they were electric. I have been to both Alpine and the Gorge now, and Alpine's energy is amazing and blows away the Gorge. The music was great. Dancing Nancies was great. Shake Me Like a Monkey was everything I hoped it would be. Smooth Rider was a nice surprise, though it seemed to suck some of the energy out of the set. Crush is becoming one of my favorites because of the "duel" between Tim and Jeff. The highlight of my night though, was The Stone. I just can't get enough of that tune!

Great energy throughout, this show certainly did not disappoint for opening a 2 night stint

For the first show back in the US I was hoping for a little better setlist. Thats ok though, Sunday the 19th was awesome!

My seventh show. Definitely a great show and a great time, but honestly I know the boys can do better. The setlist was ok. It wasn't the best I've seen, it wasn't there worst. I have high hopes for Sunday though, and I think they are really going to blow us away. There's a ton of great songs that weren't played tonight. And I always am of the opinion that Sunday is always the best day at Alpine. Fun show, though.

acoustics weren't great on the lawn - obnoxious teenagers sang every word to every song off key for the first hour - once they left I really enjoyed the show
