Watch Tower Stairway was amazing. After they took a giant dump on ALpine N1 2weeks earlier I left with my jaw wide open it made me remember why I love this band so much. great show!!!!!!!!! The sound is so much better at Deer Creek!

Great show tonight... sat 12 rows back, lower pavillion center, by far the best seats I have ever had, not too close (have sat 4th row) and centered is always great (sat 3rd right last year). Night 1 at Deer Creek is always very memorable, last year and this years N1 had extremely lengthy setlists, which is always fun. A great mix of old and new, very much enjoyed the whole evening.

Anyone taking credit for the Monkey tossed up on stage? How awesome was it to have it put on Stefan's board for the rest of the show....someone lucky caught that.
Great job boys! Thanks for all you do.

Unbelievable setlist and excellent performance. Yes, the lyric fumbles and Carter's bass peddle break were there, but didn't distract from the show at all. All in all, probably one of my top 3 shows.

Great show! Enjoyed no Corn Bread following Spaceman. You Never Know was a heck of a treat.

I really loved the BW tunes live, especially Alligator Pie...sooo much fun, wouldn't mind if its repeated on N2.

Show was just very solid. Here's to some surprises and lots of fun at N2!!!!!

First Show at Deer Creek and it was great. This is easily the best N1 so far this year. Highlights of course were YNK, LIOG, 41, Jimi and Watchtower -> Stairway. Really enjoyed Timebomb and Squirm out of the new songs. I can't get over how great this show was considering it was N1 of a two night stand.

This show didn't exactly drive me wild...I love this venue, kinda small and very cool how you can see a lot of offstage action. It was awesome to here Shake Me Like A Monkey for the first time live and the Shotgun tease was so tempting. You asked what saved the show? Certainly not Time Bomb as the set closer, but the encore Watchtower with Stairway interpolation brought salvation. For my first show with the Whiskey tracks, I gotta say there quite a few that work well live and I can't wait to see where they go.

Great show...didn't like the Timebomb ending (least favorite song on the new CD)...but the encore was amazing. So happy to hear 'The Maker' finally. The band was tight and the crowd was full of energy. All in all...a great night!

N1 ------ Amazing!! Dave was going nuts!! I loved the "Sexy Muthafucker shaking that ass" I was laughing sooo hard!! #41 at sunset....Beautiful! I think they were trying to out play the sunset! "The Maker" was a GREAT surprise!! And "Watchtower" I cant even put into words...It was the 5th time I've seen it and this one was the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I saw it 2 times already this tour and I guess 3rd time is the charm! I got chills just talking about it!

"You Never Know" was great too! I love that song! I really wanted to hear FULL "Shotgun" but got it N2 :)

And Jeff playing DOUBLE sax??!!!!!!!!!! INSANE!!!!

I loved it!!! Dave fucking up the lyrics and smiling and laughing about it.....so cute!! Just amazing show!!

I cant pick which night I liked better....N1 was longer.....but I loved N2 too!!!

16 shows and counting......Next Stop...Farmaid!

This was a great show. BT didn't get a lot of solos, but he was phenomenol on LIOG. Jeff Coffin can more than hold his own as Roi's replacement. Carter is always amazing, and Dave's voice was the best I've heard it in years. But I really miss Butch, especially on songs like Bartender. If the band can't make it work with Butch, I hope they will consider another keyboardist. It makes the songs more complete, in my opinion.

Great Show and setlist. However, you would think that when you sit in the lower pavillion 12 rows away you would get away from some of the people who are so drunk they can't even stand up. Unfortunately, two drunken, anorexic Paris Hilton wannabes who couldn't even stand up sat next to me on one side and an idiot who was so drunk he was screaming that Dave was an idiot when he didn't play all of Shotgun sat on the other side. When he kept screaming about Dave being a moron and f'n idiot and making a scene, I finally told him to shut the hell up. Fortunately, I didn't let them ruin my night. I will definitely be back.

Great show. #41 was the highlight until.....the Stairway to Heaven >> Watchtower!!! WTF???

A thrill all the way. My 11 year old daughter and her friend were gifted two sticks from Carter, then got them signed by Carter & Rashawn before night #2 (a big thanks to Rashawn!).

Not only can these guys rock like nobody else, they are humble as well!

Great energy from the crowd and band. Our seats were right behind the VIP boxes (front row upper pavilion) and were probably the best I've ever had (and I've had lowers before).

Incredible set...Proudest Monkey rocked out, #41 was nuts (Coffin's glasses flew off mid-jam), Why I Am killed, The Maker vocals were the best I've seen--beautiful 3-part harmony, and to end with Watchtower/Stairway was a perfect way to end night 1. The only reason I give 4 stars is because there were no real surprises. Maybe Night 2???

Great show, best satelitte i've ever heard, 9 new songs for me on this show!!! got to hear so damn lucky again so that made me happy. proudest monkey was really cool to hear. The hilights of the show to me was 41, Jimi Thing, Watchtower, So damn lucky and lie in our graves. They played a little more of shotgun than they usually do, i can feel the full version coming on N2.

Boyd was on fire tonight!!! glad to see that he got alot of solos to play. I could have done wthout crash into me, i'm sick of hearing that and seeing the 500 couples basically having sex out in the lawn. Great show though, cant wait to see what night 2 brings us!! hopefully a full shotgun or best of whats around.

Pretty solid concert. I expected more actually, but finally heard watchtower and proudestmonkey!! Other than that, the only thing I can say about the concert is the people out in the lawn talk way too much, and too loudly.

We're here to watch Dave Matthews Band people, not to ruin everyones fun by being so drunk/high ya don't know where you are but insist on babbling.

Can't easily say it's the best DMB show I've ever been too, but it was one of the top 5. The song placement for this concert was impeccable. I was excited to hear the new stuff (which rocks expectingly) but Jimi, #41, Bartender, LIOG (even though they never finished it...not even the following night. Don't know if that has happened before.) And the Maker was outstanding and since I hadn't been watching setlists for a few weeks I had no idea that Stairway is now interpolated the way it is into the song. Fuckin' amazing.

The band is putting on an incredible show right this year. Now I'm gonna try and fly to WPB to crash with in a buddy of mine's hotel room (unless WPB has camping)...then little rock...you'll find me in the front.
