Show was OK, nothing like the previous night in Hershey. They played many of the same songs. I wanted to see Raven or Big Eyed Fish. No Sister for the second night in a row.

Bartender, Joyride, and Bayou were awesome. Encore was so-so. I thought we would get Song That Jane Likes. Typical Situation was a very nice treat. Idea of You is really coming along nicely...it is really stating to jel.

Review:
The show had all the right elements of a great concert- beginning with the opener, What Would You Say. It had all the right ingredients of an opener: familiarity and intense energy. The band started the night off on the right note with WWYS- but could they keep up the established pace? The band did with Everyday and So Right. Everyday (#36) is always exciting to watch, the song is a true hybrid of Daveís older tunes and newer lyrics. Dave continues to please allowing the crowd to join in with the #36 lyrics, signing backup to them. So Right has only made one other appearance this summer, and was a treat to see again. Hunger for the Great Light, Canít Stop, Grace is Gone, Lousiana Bayou, and Steady as We Go was a string of slower works that allowed the band to display their newer pieces. Personally I have come to expect slow runs like this in DMBís more current tours- but Iím not exactly a fan of it. Bartender infused energy back into the show with the powerful emotional performance Dave and the band always brings to this piece. Dancing Nancies has come from a reemergence a few tours ago to become a regular concert staple again. Always a fan favorite, and Dave Matthews Band doesnít disappoint with grooving improvised solos from each member of the band. The song is like a mixing bowl where each member contributes his own piece. Out of the newer songs performed later in the set, I partially liked Idea of You, I think this will be a song that will go far if it ends up on a new album. Pantala Naga Pampa -> Rapunzel was a strong choice to end the set, having all the ingredients as the opener. The encore included two fan favorites with Pig and Stay (Wasting Time). Pig which, is a regular within the regular set, hasnít been slotted as an encore since June 2003. Overall the show proved to be yet another enjoyable experience for Dave fans in Virginia.

Review:
Good show energy - it was raining leading up to and during the show, so when the band came on they knew they really needed to hit it hard. Strong setlist for the most part. A couple slow songs (Steady As We Go killed the show momentum) didn't fit well with the overall atmosphere. We got Pig during the encore, which was awesome. Overall very pleased, this will be the 3rd year in a row I'll catch the Bristow show.

Not as strong a show as Hershey, but some really good performances nevertheless. Too many repeats from Hershey. I expected a better show than Heshey, as it was much cooler. So Right was nice to hear. Nancies, Bartender, Typical Situation and Rapunzel were strongest performances. Kill the King sounds great (I liked Break Free at Hershey even better). Once again, Traffic was horrendous. Had a great time!

Great show! I was home on R&R from Iraq, just got married a week earlier and this was a wedding gift for my wife and I. 3rd Row!! Awesome view! I painted a sign that read "HOME FROM IRAQ TO GET MARRIED AND TO SEE DMB" Dave came out when announcing the opening band and looked down and said to me,"I want to thank you for your courage over there." Nothing negative to report, traffic sucked like normal, but an overall great show!!

User: gr8r84u
Review:
Weather sucked but was lucky enough to trade for 4th row then have someone ask me to switch with a friend they wanted to sit next to and move to the 2nd row. I the band took 5 min break between each song so no flow... they were clearly exhausted from an unbelievable performance the night before at Hershey. Oh well... even a bad show from the second row is a great night.

The show was great, although I think the band seemed a bit tired. Mother Nature wasnt being cooperative with all that rain. And, I would have enjoyed the show more if some of the fans on the lawn could have acted more like fans (showed more interest in watching the band, less in sliding down the mud over and over again, regardless of home many other unsuspecting people they slid into along the way.)

User: igetdpwndby0016
Review:
LOVED typical and So Right, One of the big things that made me enjoy this show a lot was how close I was to the stage, but the setlist was a rollercoaster, it would have been nice for a dreaming tree (everytime stefan pulled out his six string it got my hopes up) but seeing as how they played it the day before it was to be expected. Bartender was awesome, and so was nancies. I'm really liking kill the king and idea of you, joyride was damn good too, pnp->rapunzel should have been an opener, what would you say didn't really start the show off with a bang, loved pig and stay as the encore, but i was hoping for a jtr too. damn good show, but not the greatest i've been too.

What a fun set! Lots of fun, dancy, happy songs, and it really reflected when I left. I want to complain that Rapunzel and Stay ended Philly last year, but I can't cause they're so awesome. Great crowd too. Thrilled to hear So Right, SAWG, and Typical Situation. Oh and Boyd learned how to ham it up during Bayou and Nancies! Well done show.

This was an average show but I probably thought that because of the amazing show the night before. They repeated a lot of the songs but I got to hear some news ones like So Right and Bartender. Typical Situation was also banging. But Boyd in Rapunzel takes the cake. I can't wait for the two shows in Camden. I have front row seats on Wednesday so boyeah!!!

amazing energy!! So Right, Typical, Nancies rocked!!! Best present: PIG into STAY!!! thank you, Dave:o)

Review:
Decent show, the huge storm during the first 5 or so songs definitely made it a different atmosphere than usual, for better or for worse (at least on the lawn). The band didn't get me as amped as usual during the show, and the setlist didn't really have a lot of flow to it. A lot of longer pauses between songs than I'm used to. But still a great time, as always. Highlight of the night for me was Idea of You, great new tune this summer.

User: jkmeyers3

My girl went with me for back-to-back shows. It pour like a Mother that night. Pretty good setlist. A lot of repeats though. Daves voice was a little gone, but we got a sick So Right and Typical was a nice surprise. Nissan's traffic as always, complete nightmare. Not bad for 2 nights in a row, but not great either.

Great show, although I was disappointed with some of the repeats from what I heard in Hershey. Things were a bit slow and the band wasn't quite with it it seemd, but it was nice to hear Typical Situation, Grace is Gone, Grey Street and even Steady As We Go.

AMAZING energy....weak setlist. Opposite of Hersehy the night before. Venue was great. Rained hardcore at the start of the show and let up about 5-6 songs in and then stopped. Section 201 row B. Loved hearing "So Right".

My first DMB show! Long time fan, but first outing. I am trying to rate it 5 years later, but I liked it enough to keep coming back each year :)

User: metchoch
Review:
This was my 29th and I can honestly say this one ranks dead last. The concert had almost a roller coaster type feel to it with all the ups and downs in regards to energy. Between GiG, CS, SAWG, the long jam in Bartender, slow jam in TS and Crash following Nancies, I was about ready to go join the mud people on the lawn!! Opening the show with WWYS, throwing in an early LB and an insane GS and Nancies, the show had extreme opposites. How can you follow Nancies with Crash? That's the only question I have...

The rain was sick!!! The show was good but it seemed as though everyone was distracted by the storm, for better or worse. Nissan continues to have so many problems. There were kids passed out drunk and the staff and police were worried about people sliding down hill. They obviously have there priorities mixed up. It is also the only place we have been to where time and time again people are fighting at a DMB show. All in all it was a great week going to see the guys in Charlotte, Raleigh, Hershey and Bristow. Welcome home fellas. We look forward to seeing you again in September in C-ville!

Awesome as always. I just really wish that he would play more of his old stuff. For example, at this show I really missed Satellite, Crush, and So Much to Say. But either way, the band sounded great, the light show was amazing, and it was just a good time!

User: pkloehn
Review:
Wow... I don't know if I'm just an old curmudgeon or not. All these reviews of the show as "great" kinda scare me. I'll pass on the blow by blow review; you can download it off of dreamingtree to hear it. The whole set just seemed slow. Admittedly the last show I saw was in 2000, but I didn't expect the huge drop in tempo that I'd gotten. The whole band seemed tired or something. The only thing that saved the show for me was just getting to see the boys live again after such a long time away, but it was definitely the lowest rated show. I'd rather listen to a recording with the "WOOOO!" guy going through the whole set. Looking at the shows after it's been mostly a slow set tour since. First night Fenway looks like it has the first 4+ uptempo songs that I've seen since Hershey's setlist. Man did I pick the wrong east coast show to go to... Shoulda sucked it up and taken the day off to get to Hershey.

7 repeats from hershey. 7 songs from stand up and the upcoming album. dave was right when he said we're gonna start slow and then get even slower. He even apologized for all the new songs. Some great jams but no flow to the setlist.

Security at Nissan is so so so so so bad. What a bunch of Nazis, honestly. I don't think I've ever been that mad in a long time. Their priorities are so misplaced and they are incredibly condescending. Just ridiculous. With that said it was a good, but not great show. What everyone is saying is right. Too many repeats from Hershey, too many repeats from last year at Nissan. Highlights were Nancies, Bayou, Rapunzel and Typical. Some of the jams were good but they were missing the spark that makes DMB amazing. Dave was absolutely right when he said they would be starting slow and going slower, as during some songs the band seemed a little bored. Then again, a good DMB show is still a 9/10 in general so a good time was had by all. Definitely look forward to going to Fenway though!

Good show (not GREAT, but good). My 20th show, and Nissan never lets me down - until this year :( I think the storm was a distraction, and the songs were kinda cut short. The encore was slightly dissappointing. But Kill the King and Idea of You were great, and Typical Situation was the BEST. Cant wait for VA beach/Camden/Cville to pick me back up.

CRAZINESS!! My first DMB show in the rain after 28 dry shows. I no longer have the fear of rain ruinning a DMB concert, because it only made last night's more enjoyable. I struggled into Nissan as it POURED!! I got to the top of the ridge and you could tell that the band was excited at the fact that everyone still showed up to this sold out show. So Right in the rain was intense. Mud divers and sliders were all over the place, everyone was dancing, singing, and jammin. Grace is Gone was very good to hear for the first time for me since 9/5/03 in Camden. Nancies was excellent, Boyd tore it up again after taking over the show the night before at Hershey. I really like the Idea of You, very beautiful song. PNP>Rapunzel was great, as well as Stay. Typical Situation was the song of the night. Perfect timing when the rain stopped and some stars popped out, great vibes. At the end of the show, Nissan was destroyed. I feel bad for attendees of the Allman Bros. show tomorrow night(well, not too bad, I saw them in the mud at Bonnaroo last year and we didn't mind). The melee in the fountain was fun after the show, and signs of people enjoying life and letting it loose were all around. A very memorable night. The best show I've seen at Nissan. I will see everyone in Camden. Note: it's gonna rain again, and we all know how crazy it gets in Camden. Can't wait.

It wasnt 7 Repeats but 8 including cant stop!! I was at Hershey and I thought I would be disappointed by Hershey last night and then be picked up by nissan tonight but it was just the opposite. Even the songs that were new from last night were shortened from earlier versions on tour like Grace. Both encore songs were even repeats. I thought the band was doing a great job with the setlists up until this point. I hope it was just a bad night.

Mudslides. Not the drink. So much fun. As soon as Dave came on, the sky finally opened up (it had been threatening for quite some time before the show) and things went nuts. Lots of people went down the hill in the mud, I was one of the first 10 or 20. Mud+Rain+Hot girls+Dave = One hell of a good concert. Plus I heard 3 new Dave songs (to me, anyway).

2nd in 2 nights ... gotta say Hershey was better ... new songs all sound real good though ... rain was cool for about 5 minutes then terribly annoying ... disappointed w/ all the bookend songs ... WWYS was a total letdown as the opener ... PNP>Rapunzel should be an opener or midset only ... Stay is cool but we heard it last night ... left a lot on the table for Camden this week ... wish I could go but saving it until Alpine this weekend

This show was awesome from beginning to end. By the end of the show Dave was so wet with sweat that it looked as if he'd been out on the lawn with all the fans who got drenched from the torrential downpour that hovered over the Nissan Pavilion during the show. When the show ended and those of us who had pavilion seats ventured out into the open area we couldn't believe the sights.....People were covered in mud and sliding down the hill....basically having a great time. It reminded me of something out of the Woodstock movie. LOL! I was in the section 303, row H seat #20, and this was a great view overall. I got some great shots with my digital camera!!!

Lot's of fun despite the rain. How can you not have fun at a DMB show. However in context I have to say that this was close to the lowest rank show that I've been to (7 total). I was happy to hear So Right and Typical for the first time, but where was the energy? Dave seemed lethargic for a majority of the time and just simply going through the motions. I really wished I showed up to the Hershey show the night before. That setlist was unbelievable.

B- show, considering all the great sets this summer so far (no hoe-down outro to grace is gone, dancing nancies --> crash instead of warehouse, bartender without big eyed fish), again, if this set was one of previous years it would have been great, but not my best show considering. Nevertheless, some highlights: typical situation, so right, pig in the encore, and I always love seeing the boys play. Can't wait until Cville night 2.
