best show ive ever been to

This show was the greatest concert I've ever been to. It even surpassed his previous performances which I have attended.

I loved hearing Proudest Monkey, Big Eyed Fish, Dreaming Tree! The long jam for Jimi Thing was SO fun. Loved the new song Kill the King-- very funky and intense! I was a little disappointed by the encore, having seen Ants as an encore before. Only downfall for me-- lawn seats.

Great show and set list was balanced. Stoked to hear Proudest Monkey and Dreaming Tree again. Band was stoked after Hunger...they nailed it. Bayou, Jimi Thing, Grace is Gone with a little hoe down, and the BOWA opener were definitely the highlights. My 30th show and I caught Dave's guitar pick after the set ending Too Much.

Perhaps my favorite Dave show. Took three DMB virgins-Row M on the aisle, treating them to a limo to boot. Amazing night.

Awesome. Great energy, great crowd, fantastic show!

Wow, this set list was like a best of Dave Matthews. With a Best of Whats Around opener and an incredible version of Grace is Gone, I was overyjoyed. I did also call Kill the King as well. Great show and looking forward to the next night.

This show was absolutly incredible. I did notice that the horn section was a little bigger than usual with two trumpets a trombone and Leroi. I don't know if anyone will believe this, but the trombone player, Reggie Watkins was a student of my father's high school band in Wheeling, West Virginia. I am actually the drummer for my father's high school jazz ensemble and we had the privlage of performing with Reggie Watkins as our special guest. When DMB perform "Jimi Thing" and Dave introduced Reggie, I thought I was dreaming because it was too good to be true. I called my father on my cell phone and recieved Reggie's cell phone number from him. Before the encore, we called his cell phone asking him if we could meet him and the rest of the band, but he said, "No, sorry, I have some business to take care of and I'm trying to make this my new gig." According to my father, Reggie and the other trumpet player, will be performing with DMB at the end of their summer tour. So technically, I guess you can say I have a connection to Dave Matthews Band!! Thanks, CarterChops

Dreaming Tree and Monkey? Amazing. This was also my first live Everyday-36 outtro. Really liked Kill the King. Some will complain this show was too mellow, but I loved it! Even if I was 'the mean guy' back in the distance in Lawn 6.

Best setlist I've ever had!

User: Crazylittlepig3

Great show, a semi rare one if you ask me. Open with BOWA then Proudest Monkey. Hunger is awesome live. I don't understand why some don't like it. Big Eyed Fish and Dreaming Tree in the same show. That is crazy! I like the news songs. The Idea of you is my fave! That song has potential. Just missing Pig! I could not make Sat show, I had a wedding to go to. Needless to say that show looked amazing!!! I would have been there! See you in Cleveland!!!

I thought this was one of the best show's I have been to in a long while. Everytime I go there is something new to experiance and every venue I go to there are new people and new things to try. I love dave and everytime I go to a show it seems he and the group make a differant surprise for me.

My 13th DMB show. Kill the King is a great song. Another BOWA opener, Ants closer for me, but I don't care. Loved Grace is Gone, Boyd and Carter cannot be better than they were for the seven minutes they jammed after the lyrics ended.

The beginning of my DMB summer started here. BOWA opener is always good. I heard some great songs for the first time: Proudest Monkey, Big Eyed Fish, Dreaming Tree, Kill the King, The Idea of You, and Sister. I had an excellent night, i'm ready for night 2. Bring on JTR and Raven!!!

User: greystreetMSL
Review:
Went to both nights. Very awesome. Got very excited when they opened with Best of whats around. that is an amazing opener, especially in the beginning of the tour (these were my first two of the summer 06 tour). Was happy to hear dreaming tree and proudest monkey. And was even MORE happy to hear shotgun bc no one had heard it ever before. We were the first ones. Good weekend. I'm going with different people next time though, bc all we did was fight in the parking lot, and thats not what DMB is about!

My very first Kill The KIng, The Idea of You, and Sister which cool because my sister was there. The Dreaming Tree from this show was beautiful and Big Eyed Fish a rare treat for any venue was played.

It was my first DMB show. I went with a very close friend who is a year older than me and graduating high school. So, this was her graduation gift, since we both love Dave's music. It was an wonderful experience and a memorable concert. I loved the set list!

Great show, strong set with many old songs that made the night. Dreaming Tree was incredible and the new songs sounded great. Jimi Thing rocked the place with tons of solos. They jammed out every song and i never heard a 13 minute grace is gone. Overall awesome show.

Awesome first night, can't wait for tomorrow!! Loved both Grace is Gone and Jimi Thing, wife loved Grey Street. Was disappointed with the Everyday/Ants Marching encore, a little too common, but the rest of the crowd liked it and of course it sounded great. Thought the horns section was awesome! Boyd's ditty in Grace is Gone was great! Begging for something rare tomorrow, perhaps Minarets or Seek Up!!!

Jimi Thing, So Much To Say-->Anyone Seen The Bridge-->Too Much had to be the most insane 35 minutes I have ever seen at a DMB show. So glad that they played Dreaming Tree, you can never hear that song enough. Bayou, which is by far my least favorite song impressed me with the entire brass section. Grace is Gone with the Dixie outro, amazing. Kill The King will indeed be a fan favorite for years to come I think, along with Idea Of You and Sister. Other gems like Proudest Monkey, Satellite, and Everyday/#36 made for a killer first night to the weekend that will soon not be forgotten!
