Buncha CRAP!! Seats sucked... The concert was recorded for IMAX so they had to redo a song (take me to the river) cause IMAX said they didnt get a good recording... Hate that they did that to DAVE!! oh well.. live and learn!

First Dave Concert...and the adrenaline was there....and the music just shot it up 10 X higher

My first concert - awesome. Hardly knew any songs, but was impressed by everyone else that sang them all. When Crash came at twilight, there was about 5000 lighters in the air. Jimi Thing and Veil were raw.

Review:
This was a great show billies to open was spectacular. Vail was great, My first crash and it rocked. Ants was great and the rev. was good as well. Nice to know that was a once in a life time show with the IMAX crew there.

Hearing take me to the river twice was the funniest thing ever at a show...

User: DMBMiamiU
Review:
First DMB show ever; won the tickets at my Junior Prom. Best seats I've ever had; a little dissapointed with the reappearance of Al Green for the encore. Overall, great show. Since I was just getting into DMB at this point after purchasing Before These Crowded Streets, I wish I had listened to more off of Under the Table and Crash before attending the show.

i got drunk

User: Frommie67

I iced my ankle for about two hours before the show in an attempt to prevent the crabbiness from the night before. It still swelled up but being on the end of the row I had a little less to get crabby about (although there was an usher who kept trying to make us stop dancing in the aisle - it didn't work). Awesome show and it was really cool to see a legend like Al Green testifying in front of my favorite band, the second time was just as fun as the first. Excellent set list and a good night all around.

In my opinion, large stadiums is where the dave matthews band belongs. And shines. The band set a record in Chicago that weekend, selling over 150,000 tickets for the 2 shows. It was a fantastic time that I will NEVER forget. John22s says "dido!"

Great show - Loved Al Green and Take me to the river. It was clear Imax wanted a second take of the song thus the encore. I have been wanting to see the Imax film for years and never have.

Ben Harper opened and put on a hell of show, sitting for all but one song. Just him and his guitars.

The band came out with high energy and played well into the night, breaking out many 'new' songs that would be released on the Lillywhite album Busted Stuff. Al Green taking the stage with the band was a high point in my concert going.

Fantastic show!

first dmb show.... AMAZING!

User: laristarr77
Review:
My first show ever. I had really shitty seats. Way up near the top across from the stage. What made them even worse was the drunk asshole behind us who complained constantly about how much dmb sucked. I don't know why he was even there. We ended up moving to the other side of the stadium and watching from an entrance, just in time to see the encore. So that was the only part that we really enjoyed. BUT, dmb was awesome and my experiences at shows have greatly improved! I never saw the IMAX show, I would like to.

Amazing show being part of the filming for IMAX movie with Al Green. Had to do the song a second time and unfortunately had some painfully rude people push into the row. Went to see "All Access" in Vegas and laughed when I was on the screen with my now ex-wife with total stick face from the rude people, haha. Lesson learned, don't let people ruin your vibe.

Very much redeemed themselves from the night before. Enjoyed myself 10xs better than the night before. Opening 'Tripping Billies' was phenominal! Carters hands were moving so fast I couldn't even see them! Got up and moved around the stadium during the second song till the end of the show. Definitely worth the effort. Major show and high quality production by the band. Ended up watching the show from all over the place. Excellent Satellite and Grace is Gone - was transported to a completely different universe (don't know how else to explain). All in all, not the greatest show of them all, but better than the last... for the time being.

Review:
My very fist show, and one I will remember. On the field and just jamming on a great night. Great opener with Tripping Billies...and then a classic close with Ants Marching. Introduced some of his new stuff. First time I had heard Grey Street or Sweet Up and Down. A little weird playing with Al Green twice, but i guess it\'s ok considering Dave has only played this song twice ever.

User: spolj41
Review:
It was my first show even though I was listening to them for a while before I went. It was a solid show good enough to make me go to a few dozen shows. Some that blow this out of the water but,not many.

First Dave show I ever attended, and will never forget it. Al Green coming on stage was awesome!! Dave packed Soldiers like only the Bears could do!

User: tdahly2124

This was the first Dave show that I attended. What a way to start out...between "Long Black Veil" and "Take Me To The River", I was completely overwhelmed by Dave Matthews Band.

Easily in the top ten! 4th row & Al Green (2 takes)!!!!!!

User: WindyCityFan
Review:
What can I say...the Rev. Al Green in that gold outfit...and being filmed for the Imax "All Access" movie. Great show. And did anyone ever end up seeing the Imax anywhere?? Did it ever come out?? And I will always remember Grace is Gone. Haunting from the very first time I heard it. And since nobody knew it yet the crowd was silent so you could really hear the words. Amazing.
