Frickin' Great show... I took my little bro to his first ever concert and it wasn't a disappointment. The DIDO, #41, and of course the Blue Water intro into Typical made an unforgetable experience. One of the best I've been to

Very nice set list...if only I could hear what Dave was saying, or even playing sometimes. Avoid this venue...the sound sucks!

Had a great time, i just wished they did more shows @ tweeter, like they did @ soldier

God what a f#$king great show... loved the Outro...what a way to end the show... didn't even remember that it took me 4 hours to get there... and I lived in Crystal Lake, IL! The traffic was aweful... but it was well worth it!

It was a very slow show, compared to most DMB concerts. Eh well, it was still awesome and I can't wait for the winter concerts!

Opening up with PIG was a surprise. THen when the start of Granny began I got so excited! I just recently got into this song. #41 got the biggest applause but Tripping Billies got the crowd worked up so much that I thought it was the last songbefore the encores. The beggining of BLue Water was a surprise and a very long Typical Situation made everyone very pleased.

my first show...GREAT setlist ... blue water tease, everything was awesome.

Finally, a great show at Tweeter. I have to say that the boys out did themselves for once in Tinley Park. The open with Pig was great. Good energy which followed into Granny. FTT is one I can do without but they keep on going against the masses. OSW was phenomenal. DIDO was my call for debut tonight and they went nuts during it. The energy was turned up again during the #41 and Too Much midset. I wish Billies and PNP->Rapunzel wasnít broken up by Crash, but Iíll live. Never thought PNP->Rapunzel could be a good closer but the band pulled it off like it was written for just that purpose. The encore was great with a nice Blue Water tease and Typical. As for WYA, please kill that song. Itís just not that good. The band must really love it but itís just such a horrible send-off song. Midset is where it belongs. I donít need that song going through my head on the drive home, though. Aside from that, I think the band finally warmed up a little bit to this crappy venue. Although the show didnít compare to the Alpine shows this year, it was still a step up from last year.

This was my second show. My wife got me into DMB and I am happy to say I am now a huge fan. Pretty good for a guy that is a heavy metal fan at heart!

One of the best shows ever...A little bit from every album, including some classics like dreaming tree, typical situation, granny, and 41...alpine will be hard to beat it...

it was a bad ass concert. dave played alot of rare stuff. the only bad thing about the concert was that it was kind of slow moving because it was so damn hot.

14th show. So much better than last year here it's silly. In my top 3, maybe #1 if not for WYA closer. Typical Situation was superb. This much fun shouldn't be allowed. And now I get to go to Alpine. Wheeee...

Sect. 103 Row J (9th row) TOKING the whole fucking time for Dave. Remeber before the show "Be friendly to your neighbors!"...lol... My seats were also upgraded by the Warehouse! My tickets were very bad before the upgrade. YOU CAN WIN THINGS!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!! This was my 20th concert and i haven't seen the band put on a show like that in a long while. Blue Water was the best.

It's been since the show since I've written my original review and I don't remember what I wrote the first time but my appreciation for this show has grown 10 fold since then and I can't get over hearing that encore... the set and presence made up for any lacking venue qualities... my first and best show EVER!!!

This was the best dave matthews band show i have ever been to. All you need to know is this: pig, dreaming tree, #41, typical situation, bartender, drive in drive out. I could name many others, or the entire set list, this show is unbelievable. The energy and the old school set list just makes it a night i'll never forget.

User: DMBFan920

Definitely the best show so far on this tour. And definitely the best show I've been to. TYPICAL SITUATION!!! (I called it, haha)

Dreaming Tree... wow that is all that I can say I was totally amazed... really happy to hear #41 it is one of my fav's. Blue Water into Typical Situation was awsome too... and what a great intro to WYA excellent way to end a wonderful show... cannot wait till Alpine Valley!!!

User: dmoore41

This show was in many ways the best I've been to yet! The band brought new improvs and jams to be heard and the crowd was digging it. Older songs are continued to being brought back into the live venues. Tweeter Center ( 7/3/2003 ) showed yet again that DMB is one of the best life bands ever.

The "rarest" show I have seen according to this www site. Great show, but this venue sucks. Acoustics are poor, possibly due to the suites hanging from the roof, and traffic flow in the amphitheater and parking lot is miserable.

Every single song was played smooth and amazing. The sound was so perfect, and the jams to each song were unbelievable.

The best damn dave show i have ever been to. Lot's of energy the band and crowed got very into it and a lot of older song. The dreaming tree,#41,and pay for what u get first time hearing them and was amazing. One sweet world, pig, where are u going alway happy to hear thos. Tripping billies, DIDO,PNP and rapuzel dave and boyd did thier dance which was awesome (love the db dance). What u are was good love the sceam and all the encore which was BWBF half song and TS dave really got into the encore. The show was awesome!!!!!!!!!! love dmb~1~1~1~1#1

User: KtDMBjam41

My first Dave show. It was so amamzing. One of the things I love most about DMB is that almost all of it's fans know every song. And almost all of them can sing them. So when Dave played #41 and the whole place was singing along, you felt like you were a part of something special. I also added 3 songs to my repertoir: Granny, JTR, and One Sweet World. Thank you, Dave. Love, katie

awsome show! The new jam for Typical Situation is unbelievably good. I think that this set list and performance was better than both shows at Alpine Valley, but that's just my opinion.

WHAT A SHOW!!!!!!! i had a blast, mostly because i had lawn tickets but at the show my friend got her best friend's b/f's 4th row tickets, so i got her like 45th row tickets, it was great, and then there were the two girls in front of me that made out with a different guy each song, that was pretty funny, as for the show, wow, pig, granny, pfwyg, and dreaming tree!!!! well can't wait til next year

User: loundsee
Review:
The show was awesome!!! I cant wait to get to another one, just not at Tweeter, I could barely hear Dave's vocals in most of the songs. The highlight had to be the energy filled performance of "Trippin' Billies"

Amazing show. Whenever a show starts off with Pig you know it is going to be absolutely amazing.

User: lrhudson
Review:
First off. I hated this venue. I walked in and hated the place for some reason. 2nd of all...it doesnt matter when DMB comes out. My god. They were amazing. 3 song encore with an amazing blue water into typical situation with an amazing intro to what you are. Totally amazing

User: lzldmb
Review:
This being my first time at the venue, I can surely say it was nothing to brag about. However, hearing Pig start the show pumped me up quite a bit. Granny certainly helped the mood progress. I heard DIDO for the first time, that was a good treat. Bartender and YNK are two of my favorite songs and after not hearing either one the night before, I was very happy to hear them that night. I was baffled by the song/album arrangement that night, I had no idea what was going on. Tripping Billies midset was a nice surprise, and so was Crash w/o the Dixie Chicken. Hard to comment on the encore because it was amazing. Blue Water tease was great, and the Typical rocked. Needless to say what the band has done to WYA is something that makes me want to hear this song at every concert. Great, great night despite the venue flaws.

The show was great. Pig was a wonderful way to start, and as soon as the crowd heard the uh-ah of Dave's start for Pig, everyone was in heaven. Great show except for the people who don't know how to have fun without drinking to the point they become annoying.

Amazing Show!

User: StrangeAllies05
Review:
One word...Amazing. It was amazing how many Dave-Heads we're their. The place was packed of course. He electrified the crowd like normal with his amazing singing techniques and his sly dance moves. Boyd sure looked pumped as he came out dancing with Dave, and pounding on the violin. Most likeley becuase the release of his new CD. Dave didn't play all of his "big hits", but that's what makes him unique. If you're a true Dave fan then you should know the songs he played. Best Song: Tie (Bartender, Too Much) Runner Up: Tripping Billies I am very happy he played Crash, seeing as how it is his most impactfull song. He hasn't played it much this tour. Drive in Drive Out really pumped up the crowd. Song Not Needed: Tie (Pig, and The Dreaming Tree) I like these songs, but live, I think they are not needed. Songs I wish they had played, "All Along The Watchtower, Two Step, Ants Marching, Crush, Last Stop." 1-10 (20) Excellent show!

What a great show eventhough its a crappy venue, the boys always pulloff an amazing setlist. Tripping Billies was amazing Boyd went crazy as usaual, and Rapunzel was insane Dave and Boyd were dancing all over the place. And I saw about 4 tapers, hope they were good.

User: thorryan
Review:
Amazing show, and the fact that we were front row made it even better. Great setlist with #41, Dreaming Tree, You Never Know, Crash, and Blue Water being the highlights. I might be mistaken, but we also heard Dave play a little of the title track of his new CD "Some Devil", which sounded awesome. I'm going to two more shows this weekend, but it will be hard to top this one!!

This was my frist DMB show and they were just amazing. When they opened with pig i went crazy, and then granny let me just say wow. The highlights of the show for me were pig, granny, one sweet world, drive in drive out, #41, The dreaming tree (I was amazed they played dreaming tree many of the people around me were saying they have been to 30 DMB shows and this was the first time they've heard Dreaming Tree), Rapunzel, typical situation, and what you are. This was a great show, DMB is THE SHIT.

Amazing!!! I was surprised not to hear such old favorites, such as Two Step and Ants Marching, but overwhelmingly pleased with Dreaming Tree. It was quite funny to see all of the newer Dave fans (namely 3/4 of the audience) sitting there dumbfounded because Dave didn't play I Did It.

Tweeter sucks but the concert was a good one. Pretty good setlist. Glad I had pavillion seats. Lawn at Tweeter is unbearbale and sound quality is worse.
