Ok, so I was a little stoned during the concert, still made my eyes tear. Never thought Id get to see such a thing in my life. WTWE and Grey St. were amazing with jus D+T. Tims solo's were ridiculous, and everybody was getting up like it was some kind of bathroom break. Hes the god of thew acoustic guitar for god sakes show some respect. And encore time, I think I jizzed... 1st ever DIDO with D+T then the classic closer of Ants Marching. Just ridiculous.

Holy "Stop... Think" Batman!! What an amazing show! I never saw Dave with Tim live before. I only wish they played a few more of my favorites (that the crowd was yelling for)... i.e. Two Step, Warehouse... His stories and joking with the crowd made it such a memorable, awesome night! I was happy to be in the crowd that decided we'd all just spread peace. Has everyone else started that today (that was there)??

Let's all stop and think, how much we didn't like to take naps when we were little especially when Santa Clause is given Cheese instead of cookies. Stop and Think how Dave was transformed from Ken to Bubba in a matter of minutes also stop and think about the Elbow grease and the oozing maggots from big Bud the Clydesdale. Stop and Think about the Troops and the great music that we were able to listen tonight and I must say Grey Street and When the World Ends sound so much better stripped down. Never Dissapointed with Bubba oh I mean Ken I mean Dave Whew!! soo confusing...Peace y'all Ben.. Everyday(#36 outro) Grace is Gone The Stone Pay for what you get->Jam<- Bartender Big Eyed Fish Lie in our graves One Sweet World Where are you going Gravedigger Cry Freedom Crush Dont Drink The Water(this land is your land) Tim solo Hopeful Heresy Seek up When the world ends(extended) Grey Street Tim Solo? Satellite Dave Speak(Bud the Horse) Dancing Nancies <-encore-> We'll do a quiet one I'll Back You Up Drive In Drive Out Ants Marching

Absolutely amazing. My first acoustic show and, for me, it was better than any other show I've been to. I feel like I got to see a whole other side of Dave that you don't get when 30,000 people scream after one word! Grey Street is a fave, so that made my night. Tim is a force to be reckoned with on that guitar. I'm so glad I got the opportunity to see them in action...

showed up the night of the show with no ticket, wandered around the lot for about a half hour and found someone selling an extra ticket, didnt pay much more than face value, couldnt have been more ecstatic..absolutely an amazing experience to see these two guys play together..norweigan wood outro on PFWYG, swim naked outro on OSW, great show

Fucking AWESOME show!!!!! Crush, Drive, Nancies, I couldn't ask for anything more...except Billies. Haven't heard that live yet. All in all a GREAT show. Dave was hysterical and the things he had to say about the war were touching. Peace and harmony, lets spread the word! Stop...Think

I paid $250 for a single ticket for this show, and it was from a friend! But it was well worth it and i wish i paid more money to sit closer. This was the 10th show i have attended and i have to say it was the best one of them all. Dave and Tim put on a wonderful show, great songs and he was very friendly throughout the entire show! I just want to thank Dave for a great night!

My first ever D+T concert and I enjoyed it very much. DIDO D+T style was unexpected, but awesome.

User: fooltothinkcait
Review:
This show was INSANE! I loved every minute of it. Dave and Tim work so well together. From the Swim Naked outro on Stone to PFWYG to Lilly white Big Eyed Fish, Lie In OUR GRAVES, to the WYA intro (dance around) into DDTW. One Sweet World was beautiful along with crush gravedigger cry freedom and Hopeful Heresy. The alternate ending to When the World Ends??? Intense. Nancies IBYU, eerie slow Too Much into DIDO ( a first for D/T) and Ants, HOLY SHIT. THats all I say. Cant wait for RCMH and WP. see y'all there

I had to stop....and think before writing this review. Dave and Tim gave me everything I wanted. Two Step and Halloween would have been nice but it was way more than I expected considering it was the first night of the tour and their first show in four years. Highlights for me were Bartender, Cry Freedom, Grey Street, LIOG, and Nancies. It was a nice mix of old and new. Dave even threw a little norwegian wood into pay for what you get. Thats old school right there. I really enjoyed the Everyday songs stripped down. Gravedigger was very passionate. The whole night was magical and it was a much needed vacation from reality. Now we all just have to start that world peace thing that Dave was talking about...

no show will ever beat this. i was in the last row, but it did not matter. dave played for 3 hours and did 23 songs and told hilarious stories. i will never forget it as long as i live

This was mt first acoustic show and I loved it. I especially loved listening to Dave speak, he is so funny. He played Nancies, Crush, Drive In Drive Out, Grey Street, The Stone, LIOG, Pay for what you get, alot of good songs. I had a great time and can't wait to see him again!

Oh my God, I almost pissed my pants. I never thought I'd get to see Dave and Tim

User: Jazzygirl
Review:
I'm still in awe...my first time seeing him on the acoustic tour. We were 3rd row, on the left of the stage. It was like being at a coffee shop, relaxing and listening to the music. I couldn't have asked for much more from this performance. I always got cheated on hearing Ants Marching live and it finally happened! A big surprise was I'll Back You Up. Dave's stories and comments were hilarious. Definitely a memorable night.

This was the first time I have ever seen Dave and Tim acoustic and it was absolutley amazing. I've been to many Dave Matthews Band concerts, but this was just absolutley amazing. Not only was it three hours of dave and tim playing music, but it was also a comedy,. Dave should seriously do stand up, the man is so funny. He went off on random tangents, I have never laughed so hard. I paid a lot for the tickets, and was skeptical at first because I spent so much, but it was worth every penny. The seats were amazing, the crowd was great...it was overall an amazing night.

User: Mabez
Review:
can you say...elbow. haha. but let me stop and think about what to right. Seats: ORCC B seats 3&4 (second row) Setlist: out of control, although i was a little skeptic with an everyday opener but after hearing it i like the stripped down version. the highlights for me: stone, pfwyg, liog, osw, gravedigger, crush, hopefully heresy, seek up, all favorites. and the encore...i'm at a loss for words. i'll back you up, (too much)dido and last but most certainly not least ANTS! dave and time, congrats on another stellar performance.

The best Dave show i've been to yet...could've been better if the crowd was a little less rowdy. but nontheless, the set list was awesome and tim is simply amazing... I hope they play some of these songs at the meadows this summer

Fantastic show with an incredible amount of Davespeak... Dave and Tim seemed in very good spirits throughout the whole night and it was great to see D&T live, since nobody knew if it would ever happen again after '99. Glad I could be a part of it, and seeing PFWYG and I'll Back You Up took two songs off the "songs I have to see live before I die" list.

So Incredible I am still in awe... Davespeak was great and the show really displayed the somber mood that the world is in

Absolutely amazing performance by Dave & Tim. Very very long show, and from a very reliable source, was "the longest we'll probably do this tour". Bringing back "I'll back you up" into the lineup added to the well roundedness of the entire show, while new favorites such as "Gravedigger", "Bartender", and "Grey Street" brought us back up after slowing the tempo from "Pay For What You Get" and "Where Are You Going". I almost feel sorry for the Radio City and Eisenhower attendees, that they missed out on a damn good thing. Oh, one last thing, a special thank you goes out to the two dudes from Maine who we befriended as we were headed into the show. Good stuff. -Rootin

User: Soright71102

My first time seeing D&T together. All I have to say is that they were both on FIRE last night and the Oakdale is one hell of a theatre. The Dave speak was "priceless" to say the least. So excited after seeing the show last night, I'm trying everything I possibly can to get Radio City tix.....

User: spenna316

It was an ok show. the setlist wasnt that great but he sounded awesome. His stories made the night soo unfrogetable with elbow grease. Overall it was a good night.

Review:
this was my first acustic show and it was awsome dave and tim mixed the fast and slow pace songs up and gravedigger was simply amazing one of daves best songs. and who could forget all that talk about world peace and elbo grease. i haven't laughed so hard in a long time. i would really really love a copy if anyone is feeling generous enough to b&p me email me at saidnewguy@hotmail.com. thanks alot. every one before you do anything ever just remember to "stop and think"~Dave Matthews

All I can say is, UNBELIEVABLE. It was my first Dave & Tim show, and it straight "blew my away". Dave even wished my boy Andre "Happy Birthday". I thought that was pretty cool. Amazing setlist, great "Dave speak". Unforgettable night!!!

This show was fantastic!............It lasted for 3 1/2 hours and I was hoping that it would go on forever!!..........I got the tickets fromw the Warehouse and we ended up sitting 5 rows from the stage..............I was in heaven!

User: timandjules
Review:
This show was great. I could have done without the idots that had to yell each time Dave would take a breath during his stories. Dudes, like Dave said.....'Stop.....think...' I just wanted to yell 'Shut up!'

This show was so HOT! Dave and Tim just tore it up! I have never seen them tour together, what a treat. I love the set list. He had some real good ones on there, ones that he rarely plays: IBYU, Big Eyed Fish, PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET. He hasn't played that in FOUR YEARS!!! Timmy was so good. It was good to see both of them together again. What an AWESOME SHOW!!!!
