Unbelievable, 3rd time I had seen Dave solo. 3rd row from the front, one of my all time faves. :) My dad was a guest speaker during the press conference before the show, Dave gave him props afterwards and used an ad-lib from my dad's speech during one of his tangents in between songs. :D

This was an amazing day! This is the day that I met Dave and got a picture and an autograph. He is an amazing musician and person. And Farm Aid is always a good time!

Great Version of Crush with the Scat. Had an annoying couple sitting behind us who kept kicking my chair because they said they were not happy with the set list?? haha I think they had way too much to drink.

my first experience with solo dave. i strongly suggest that if you ever have the chance to see dave solo... to take it.

Dave was AMAZING! Dancing Nancies woo hoo! Kid Rock wasn't bad (thank god no "forever") and Neil Young was great. Mellencamp was kind of a let down though, and the rest was mostly country which i hate. But a great time on the whole.

Dave Was Great!! Could Have Done without kid Rock!

Dave came out and put on a great performance. He was the only act of the night that had all of the audience on their feet and singing. He was the Only reason I bought tickes for Farm Aid, and his performance was well worth the price of addmission, even with the slight mistake during Gravedigger.

Very good - I was very drunk,which always helps. This show was unique in that it wasnt just Dave that people were going to see. The setlist was absolutely phenomonal for a shorter show; Icant get enough of Gravedigger live. Plus the Dancing Nancies was a welcome addition - Its beena while since Ive seen it. Dave really can rock by himself, and I would hope that everyone will eventually be able to experience a solo show...

Gravedigger was teh first time I ever heard that song and it was my favorite in a solo until I heard it at Bonnaroo.

My first live experience with Dave. It was amazing. I had to sit through a few hours of other music before he came out but for the time he was on stage it was simply incredible. The energy in the lawn section was amazing as well.

Seeing Dave alone was a different experience...I actually didn't think I would enjoy him as much. But I really did! Hearing "Crush" acoustic was awesome and so was his version of "Too Much". The setlist was great...I'm only disappointed that there was no guest!

great time, first time seeing Dave perform solo and our first intro to Gravedigger sweet!!! rest of show was pretty good, I actually dug Mellencamp and wished Neil Young would have something a little more lively after sitting in the lawn for hours!

Disappointed Dave did not play w/Neil or vice-versa...drove 14 straight hours to see Dave Solo--->Thanks to Warehouse for FRONT row PIT seats!! Sat right behind stupid ass media/camera guys...they had no clue who Dave was for most part...McConaughey was the host for most of night and by end of night he was wasted and actually got out and danced w/Native American Dancers!!! Really entertaining...Cool to see Dave Solo

I heard Nancies again!!!! I had been obsesssing over how much I wanted to hear it on the way there, and I got it!! Once again, I love hearing Dave solo. Could have played a little more upbeat songs though. My section was great (Warehousers all the way) and it was a great great day.

well, after what i think is the best run i've seen DMB in, i was ready for more. i can't remember if the winter tour had actually been confirmed by the time i was at this show, but it was definately fine by me if this was all i got, i remember that much. altho now, i'm glad it's coming fast. anyway, back to this show. i can honestly say that i'm not sure if i'd go out of my way to see dave solo again. altho since this show he's proved that he can hold his own solo (Raven, Stay, etc.)i'm just not sure...i don't really consider this my 13th show, cause it wasn't DMB...it was just dave, and i know it's named for him, but it's not JUST him, i'm a real big advocate for the fact that the band is just that, a band, not one person ya know, and i think dave would agree with that...i dunno...anyway the place is 10 minutes from my school, so i figured, what the heck, cheap lawn seats, and i can walk if i have to, i wanna see dave. it was a great experience to see him by himself, i can say i have ya know, and i saw Dancing Nancies for the firs time, altho i'd like to hear it full band someday too. it was a great time, altho i was REALLY disappointed he played such a short set, no encore, nothing. i mean, it was still awesome, but i mean, he played more last year, and this time he was supposed to be a headliner. anyway, can't complain, paid like 30 bucks, and i took 5 minutes to get there. so i'm 12 and 1 with my DMB record as it stands now, 12 Dave Matthews Band shows, 1 Dave Matthews Solo show. winter tour, and number 13, here i come.

Dave seemed a little drunk/stoned...something. He was animated tonight. No dancing but still animated. Too Much was the highlight of the night for me. I think it was the first solo performance ever. Absolutely wonderful. Also, he extended the "Crush Scat", another highlight. Leaving at 6:15 AM from DeKalb, IL on Saturday 9/21 and returning home at 7:04 on Sunday 9/22 is something I will never forget. 17 hours in the car and no sleep for 45 minutes of perfection!
