San Antonio is always a disapointed crowd,nice show thanks to the band to play their heart out.

Great Show, started strong with Don't Drink the Water and didn't let up all the way through All Along the Watchtower. Long Black Veil was especially personal and worth noting. Crush remains all time favorite though after seeing it live.

Awesome setlist. Amazing

Great setlist, but the crowd was sort of poor. Mainly comprised of what you might consider "new" fans who were most likely brought in because of "Everyday's" commercial success. "Watchtower" closer was frickin awesome with Boyd fiddling through a wah-pedal. "Pig" was a wonderful surprise and Dave-solo "Long Black Veil" was moving. "Crush" another great jam. The rest was standard stuff. DDTW (this song almost never changes), SMTS (with no Bridge!), IDI (grr), Space Between and Ants (VERY basic.) There were some lesser played songs here that should have had the crowd going nuts: Granny, You Never Know, GIG, OSW, Pig, etc, but the crowd was really unresponsive. The stands were in a constant state of movement, very few people stood and many just talked loudly to each other. DMB probably didn't feel all that welcome and gave a less than stellar show as a result. An example: The next day at my job, I saw overheard two girls talking about the show. It went something like this: Girl 1: I went to the Dave Matthews show last night. Girl 2: Oh yeah how was it?!?!? Girl 1: It sucked. They didn't play Crash. And every song was soooo, long. Ugh. I rest my case.

It was decent, but lacked a certain something. Dave always plays shows that are a little eccentric here and the fans aren't the greatest...

The show was terrific! My husband flew to Texas with me to see the show. After the show he said, "This was definetly worth flying all the was to Texas to see." He isn't a big fan and for him to say that was saying allot.

I miss San Antonio shows. They were always my favorite Texas shows!

Heard Pig and Crush for the first time. GRANNY! Long Black Veil, didn't get to appreciate it the first time I heard it. Fool To Think was definately another highlight. Great evening.

Although the San Antonio crowd never totally appreciates the band's energy as a whole.... those who do make these shows what they are, even in Selma. The music was amazing, and the band, as always played their hearts out.
