Dave Matthews Band|

The Amphitheater at the Wharf, Orange Beach, AL
Man it was hot. I hope it's the last time I sweat like that. Went with an old friend that have never seen a show. He loved it. I'm a good DMB show host. If you aren't used to singing and dancing at the show, I am your guy. Love it intensely.
Waited 6 hours in the Pit line. Sweating! Railed stage left! Worth it!! Sledgehammer was so good! As was the whole show. I remember Dave was dripping in sweat by the 3rd song.
This show was all good in my book. No one should have been disappointed. I was only hoping I could have heard Come Tomorrow in the encore...still I was delighted with the band, the set, the weather the vibes, everything BUT the venue. This venue has potential but needs some upgrades. The band was not flat at all...Dave was dancing and talking to us a lot and the set really moved and flowed well. Crush was epic and Stay or Leave was a treat as was Sister and Funny.... Ants was the only time I missed Boyd and they still pulled it off nicely. Buddy is the greatest addition to the band they could have found for keys. He\'s a natural fit. This show was worth the wait.
Not so great - This was the first DMB concert that I experience where people genuinely didn't seem happy to be there. Weird vibes.
