Where to start?!?! First of all, what opener could be better than Bela Fleck and the Flecktones?? They were really cool to see! Onto DMB, they opened with WWYS, which was a good song to really get the crowd into it. They went through pretty standard versions of Grey Street (great outro) and IDI (glad this wasnt in the encore!) I was really gald I got to hear the new song You Never Know. I think this is goin to be the next Crash type song. Too Much and What you are were very well done and I was glad to hear them both. Dave danced up a storm Too Much (more dancing to come...) Bela Fleck came out for DDTW and this song really got the crowd movin. There wasnt one stiff body in the arena by the time this song was over! Everyone was jstu groovin in their own little way! GIG was awsem! Dave left the stage during it to let the guys jam it out while Dave hung out with Butch and behind Carter. During DIDO, Dave danced across the whole stage which got the crowd really pumped up and then they played what everyone was hopin they would: PIG!!!!!!!!! This song is amazing live!! TSB, jstu glad this wasnt part of the encore! So much to say was pretty standrad but well done. LIOG was BY FAR the highlight of the night for me, Boyd rocked out for what seemed like eternity and jstu wouldnt stop then he went ovr and jamed with bela fleck for a minute before Bela went off on a mad rant!!!!! most defenetly the highlight of the nite!! I wish they picked a different song other than Raven after LIOG because it was kinda a downer and everyone was going to the bathroom and stuff during it. Pantala-->Rapunzel was an amzing closer and the band put so much feeling and emotion into this with an absolutly incredible jammin outro! Dave was a dancing maniac during this one! They boys took a while to come back on stage for the encore (5-7min) but it was well worth the wait! Where are you going is goin to be a big hit, but the encore was all about ANTS!!!! This song made the crowd go into a dancing frenzy that wouldnt stop!!! Overall this show was extemely good with a great setlist, a very energetic and dancy dave at the helm! A must have for all the traders out there!

Show was steller. Dave's voice was more than okay, couldn't notice a problem at all. Although by the end he was chewing something, could of been something to numb it up. The crowd in Toronto was outstanding, one of the best I've been a part of. WWYS - great start, got the crowd going. I love Grey Street. New song YNK, great tune can't wait to hear it on the album. What You Are was absolutly amazing, I'm sure most fans would agree tonight, definite highlight. Bela on LIOG and DDTW was great. Boyd was amazing on LIOG as well. Where are you going is a great song and going to be on the radio soon. All in all Dave and the boys had alot of energy tonight and it was great to see that all is well, thank god. I hope the other Canadian dates are as good as tonight.

Just made it back to school in Kingston. Really enjoyed the show tonight. Lie In Our Graves was worth the price of admission itself. Raven was a surprise. Also, was quite impressed with Dave's voice after the ailments of late. It seemed a bit shakey to me towards the end of the night but I could be wrong. Setlist was the same as of late, but still a good show to see. Hoping to get to Ottawa tomorrow night.

Well I must say that tonight's show was mindblowing to say the least. There was great energy from the band, and Dave's voice sounded amazing. He didn't miss a note all night! What Would You Say:Predictable opener, but really got the crowd going early. Grey Street:I've said it once and I'll say it again, AWESOME! I Did It:This song actually got a pretty big pop from the crowd. Sounds better every time. You Never Know:I think this is the best song on the new album. It was my second time hearing it live. It's awfully strange when you're the only one in your section who knows the song. It won't be like that next year! Too Much:Great Energy, Good Lights! What You Are:This one caught me out of left field, but I really enjoyed it, sounded great. Don't Drink The Water:Bela Fleck guested on this song. Him and Carter did a bit of an intro together. Grace Is Gone: Sweet song with a decent jam at the end. Drive In Drive Out:My first time seeing it live and I want to see it again. Such an intense song. Pig:Need I say more? Definately one of their top thre songs, lyrically it's the best! The Space Between:I felt like I was at a teen girls choir rehearsal during this song. I sat down, but the three lovely ladies I was with enjoyed it. So Much To Say:Pretty standard, but good nonetheless. Lie In Our Graves:Again with Buffalo last week was the highlight of the night! Bela guested on this as well,and tore it up after Boyd played a great solo. This show is worth getting just to hear the two of them duel it out. At this point the crowd was just jammin'! Raven:I like this song, but others thought it sounded better from the bathroom. Oh well. Pantala Naga Pampa - Rapunzel:I was kinda disappointed that they closed with this last week in Buffalo as well as tonight, but I still enjoyed it quite a bit. Dave danced up a storm and left us craving some more. Where Are You Going:Great new song. The ladies like it a lot too. Ants Marching:All I can say is WOW! Amazing energy, dancing like crazy, groovin like mad, and sending everyone home happy! Definately a fantastic show. Great lights, great production, great crowd! I'm jealous of anyone who gets to see them soon, because it's gonna be a while for me. Enjoy the rest of the tour!!!

Yowza! This was musically the greatest Dave concert that I can attest to witnessing. The setlist was great, and even songs that wouldn't sound so exciting didn't damper the atmosphere. The first two shows I went to this year almost brought me to tears with Pig and Lie in Our Graves, but tonight, my friends... tonight was all about the dancing. Energy filled the arena and had me surging like a flux capicitor. The only complaints were a couple of girls next to me on the floor (10th row) who took it upon themselves to sit down during Boyd and Bela's relaying Lie in Our Graves solo, and the fact that the fine people at MapQuest.com brought me to some guy's house in Canada rather than the Air Canada Centre, causing me to miss Grey Street and What Would You Say. Other than that, the show was simply amazing... Lie in Our Graves pretty much blew everyone away, and people sort of just stared at each other in awe after it ended... get the CDs... Next stop, Great Woods.

Well Dave's voice was certainly better. I hope it holds up for the rest of the tour. The highlights were Grey Street, YNK, DDTW and LIOG with Bela, Raven, Pig, PNP->Rapunzel, and Ants as a closer. I thought for sure we were going to get #41 with Bela, but I complain. He added so much to DDTW and LIOG. Overall, The show was everything I could have asked for. On to the Palace!

Let me start by saying that any night spent with Dave and the boys is a good night. However, having been at the buffalo show last week I was disappointed with tonight's show. Dave's voice was noticeably weaker which resulted in the last line of SMTS being left off and PNP being taken down an octave. Also, Rapunzel was played at a MUCH faster tempo than usual, presumably to make it easier for Dave to sing. Highlights included LIOG with another great performance by Boyd and a guest appearance by Bela Fleck, Ants Marching and an emotional GIG. The best part of the evening - meeting Boyd before the show by the buses. He was very friendly, shaking hands and signing autographs for everyone there.

I'll start w/ the highlights. Bela Fleck & The Flecktones opened up, and there were unreal!! What a talented bunch of musicians! Now on to the boys. Is it me or are these the same setlists from every other show this month but in different order? 1st time I heard YNK and I liked it a lot. Grey Street, GIG, Raven, WAYG, Pig & LIOG where the highlights that made the show good. Carter was outta his mind this night, and you can tell each of the guys picked it tonight. Dave was struggling towards the end w/ his voice. He pointed to his vocal chords after SMTS..

What a great show! It started off with some singles and I was hoping the would play the Pig, and guess what?! THEY DID! It was a great version, LIOG was by far the best of the tour and I hope they will do some more ultra jams with Bela in the next two days in Ottawa and Montreal. I hope the two girls I gave my extra tix to in Sec 105 enjoyed the show! I certainly did and I will see you all in Ottawa tonite! Amazing show!

Dave has done it again. He again managed to bring me to my knees crying wildly. Nice intro with WWYS. Beautifully done Grey St. , really got the crowd going and let us know that his voice was in perfect health. You never know was incredible and will be a huge hit when released. What You Are was amazing. After Grey St. , IDI, Too Much and WYA you knew that this was going to be a hardcore concert. Sure enough they follow that up with DDTW with Bela. Bela on the banjo worked beautifully and the whole song was extremely well done. Drums in Drive in Drive Out were amazing, plus Daves wicked dancing got the whole crowd moving. Pig was absolutely incredible and dave sounded amazing. You would figure that it would be all done hill from there, but nothing was greater than LIOG with Bela. The huge banjo solo by Bela was to die for. The song lasted 16 minutes and was nothing but bliss. People were really drained by the intensity of LIOG and a lot left during an amazing Raven. Great finale, the wild dancing by Dave had the whole place screaming. Cute little full band of WAYG (dave solo is better) and right into a perfect ending with Ants. Everyone sang along to every word and was blown away by Leroi with the sax. The trend continues, Toronto shows are always amazing. 94 great, 98 amazing, 01 incredible, and now this. WOW!!! Thank you Dave!!

This show was weak, and it had nothing to do with the band. First, I dont care if this show was sold out or not, but the crowd was aweful. People in our section didnt even stand up when the band took the stage. Me and my friends were the only ones standing, and idiots around us told us to sit down. Throughout the show, people had no clue what they were playing. The guys sitting next to me asked what the names of Ants Marching and Too Much were, it was a joke. The band had a ton of energy tonight, more dancing than I may have ever seen from them, however, this was the same show as Buffalo just a week ago, only half as good. The set was a duplicate, 12 songs repeats from Buffalo. I just dont understand why Bela came out for only 2 songs, and Victor Wooten, Jeff Coffin, Futureman, etc. didnt even appear during DMB's set. Lie in our Graves was sick though. Boyd put so much into it, easily the best versian I've ever heard, including the winter 98 run. Few other highlights of the night included DDTW(believe it or not, sounds real good reworked a little bit), RAPUNZEL, shit, Dave made 3 or 4 laps around the stage dancing in the outro, real good, and PIG. Of the 18 DMB concerts Ive been to, this is bottom 5, no question, and the only thing keeping it from the very bottom was the energy from the band, not the crowd.

WOW! What a show. First one and it was great. Except for all the weed goin on. That was nutts. Everytime i looked around some one was smokin a cig. or a joint. It was horrible. But that was just a small damper on the show.........Anyway, what an opener with WWYS. Great opener. G/F loved it. Grey Street my fav. from Lilly White. I did it, well what can i say but just a horrible song. Don't like "Don't Drink the Water" but it was played amazingly tonight. PIG, was awesome. Worth the price of admission. Where are you goin. Great tune, my next love. And Ants Marching both songs as encore. Great choice. Haven't heard it in so long. Would have loved to of heard Watchtower instead. But i didn't need to be spoiled anymore. Was hoping to here Last Stop, or stay. That would have been crazy. But all in all amazing show. See ya at the 7/20/02 show.

I'll start with the opening band. It was really great to see Bela Fleck and the Flecktones open, especially because you knew that Bela was going to join Dave throughout the show for some songs as he did. Being in Buffalo last week was unbelievable, and that's why I didn't find last night's show at the ACC to be such a thriller. He missed out on a lot of favourites although highlights were DEFINITELY Lie In Our Graves, where Bela and Boyd had their own solos and they wetn CRAZY. That was definitely a highlight of the night. Pig was also amazing, I wanted to hear this one in Buffalo but I got it in Toronto which was nice. PNP --> Rapunzel was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO good. Like he always does during this song, Dave danced around the whole stage, he was crazy. I always love to hear Grey Street. Raven is a very good song, however I believe he changed almost all of the lyrics from the Lillywhite CD, or at least the version I am used to. Ants Marching was a nice closer, the crowd was REALLY into it during this one. The crowd was surprisingly calm throughout the show mostly compared to the crowd in Buffalo. This show didn't even compare to the Buffalo show, but all in all was a very good show.

Well, the show was in Canada, so I expected a lot of radio tunes and I sure got them (7 in all) Anyway, it was still a great show. The band was very charasmatic, especially Carter and Dave. This was my 8th show and LIOG with Bela was the best thing I have ever heard. The jam started out with Boyd going nuts, then Boyd and Bela going back and forth, then Bela finishing it up. It was truly unreal, and this is what I was hoping for from this show. YNK was great, along with What You Are, which was a great surprise to hear. Pig was absolutely wonderful. All this started last year at Soldier Field when the first 30 rows were holding up "Pig" signs and Dave teased it about 5 or 6 times that night. Nice to see the band responding to the fans. PNP->Rapunzel was a great closer with Dave and Boyd going crazy and Carter tearing it up on the skins. Where are you going is a great song and Ants is always a good way to end the night. Overall, it was a real good show. See you at the Palace on Tuesday!

OH MAN! that was the greatest show ever! started off a little slow with What Would You Say? (woulda liked Billies) then went right into Grey Street, that song is SOOOOOOOO good. Then I did it (the teenyboppers behind me were rejoicing). Then dave busted out You Never Know, little hard to understand, but it sounded really nice. I normally dont like Too Much, but 2nite, they jammed SOOOO much on this song, it was awesome. THen another Everyday song (what you are) meh. THEN THE CONCERT STARTED. Bela came out and jammed a little on Dont Drink the Water, really cool. Grace is gone is always nice and drive in drive out was nice. PIG! i was goin nuts, no one knew it and it was SOOOOOOO sweet. Return to teeny-bopper central as the galz were in heaven with space between (it did sound good) then so much to say - meh. Lie in Our Graves, oh man! lasted like 20 minutes, boyd lead for awhile and he was goin NUTS! and himand Bela alternated solos, it was really REALLY sweet. Raven took everyone to the bathroom in my section, but i stayed and its a nice song, then rapunzel is always cool, no PNP, surprising... the encore was the predictable where are you goin? which was cool and then they busted out a 10 minute ants marchin, took like 4 minutes to get it started, friggin amazing. c yallz in ottawa!

To DMB: In the shadow of an album untrue, at the dawn of an album for the ages, thousands of miles away from home, under the plague of an unhealthy voice, you impressed 20,000 fans and myself unforgettably. You guys recently went through the gears: Weird producers and uncharacteristic songs, unfortunate deaths and joyous births and you came out on top yet again. "Post Prolium Praemium" - "After the struggle, the reward." Sick, Sick, Show! You guys rock. I am proud to be your fan.

I would hafta say i was dissappointed in the setlist tonite dave played alot of new stuff, and he did not play the stone, crash, crush, seek up, #41, tripping billies i could go on; that was disappointing. too many new songs dave, we wanna see your old stuff Rapunzel, Lie in our graves, ants marching were all good, but ive see them live everytime i go and it wasnt worth the price of admission. Hopefully dave will see this and do something about it. I still love dave hopefully he will give me a better show at darian lake

I just got back from a 7 hr trip from Toronto. It was the first show of the tour for me and a pretty good one at that. Ya really can't go wrong with Bela and the Flecktones as an opener. I was glad to see Dave feeling better-at least he seemed like it, dancing around the stage and really wailing on songs like DDTW and Too Much. They opened with WWYS which wasn't a huge suprise after reading previous setlists, but Grey St right after was awesome. I was happy to hear YNK as I've heard it's an amazing song. I really love it. DIDO was great to hear esp. followed by DBTP. Dave let the crowd sing the last line of SMTS too which was cool. Raven rocked,but PNP-Rapunzel brought down the house. I love that song live. WAYG and Ants-GREAT way to end the set. Overall a good show. Can't wait till Cleveland!

This was my 5th Dave show (first since 07/21/00), and I've got one thing to say. . . The Dave Matthews Band is BACK. In all likelihood, the best show I've seen by them. The one thing that impressed me the most was that the setlist really catered to true DMB fans, and was definitely not a commercial, hit-oriented show like the last time I saw them on Canadian soil, MLG on 11/17/98. The show started off on a relatively mellow, yet enjoyable tip, especially Grey Street, which is easily one of my favs. Even I Did It, a tune I don't even like, sounded cool, in particular, Dave's strumming sounded really groovy! You Never Know and Where Are You Going (encore) sound like great new tunes. . . can't wait for the album. Highlights, DDTW and DIDO sounded AWESOME!! The band has totally perfected the older tunes, and really looked that they still enjoy playin' em. Biggest surprise? PIG. ABSOLUTELY UNREAL. Didnt expect that track, and it was my first time seeing it live. UNBELIEVABLE. LIOG was OFF THE SCALE. Boyd OWNS THAT TUNE!! Then after he jammmed on it, Bela Fleck soloed too, and he absolutey RIPPED IT. PNP-Rapunzel was crazy, especially Dave's grooving at the end during the jam-out. I've never seen him display that much energy! Ending with Ants was insane! Overall, I must say that with the exception of 07/21/00 (where I had better seats) that was the best DMB show I've ever seen! Setlist was certainly appreciated by their Canadian fans that know they have more tunes that Crash Into Me! Seeya on 07/20/02

This was a GREAT show. Bela Fleck opened brilliantly, and Dave left everybody amazed. THey played the best version of Lie in our Graves I've ever heard. Bela and Boyd jammed together for a while and that was incredible. The sold out crowd went nuts when Dave started to dance too. He didn't say too much. All he said was "were from the little country south of here", and he said "thank you very much" alot too. (like every show). But probably the highlight of my night was when I was driving home and passed Dave's bus. He was sitting there watching T.V. That was a great experience. It was my second show, and by far the best. Thanks Dave for the incredible experience!!

Well this was my 8th show overall, and the first of 8 (maybe 9) for the summer, and I'd have to say this one is 2 or 3 on the list of shows. WWYS-good opener, definatly made everyone dance-then Grey Street! My friends and I had been singing it all day, so when it came on, we went a little nuts. It was great to hear the new song live-sounds a lot better live-in fact I whipped out my phone and called my sister durning that and Pig-oh and Pig! So excited to hear that one! Grace is Gone-I thought my roomate was gonna start crying, such a good performance of that. Also, I got to hear my two favorite live songs, DDTW and Too Much-oh so good- and of course, LIOG by far the best performance of that song ever! I definatley have no complaints about the show-except those two bitchy girls sitting next to us -they didn't like the fact that we yelled and sang during the show! Oh well off to the Palace, then Allstate this weekend!

UMM actually remembers what they played Excuse me, who ever didn't like that show should really consider even being a fan of DMB. I was at the August show and even though it didn't compare to that ( one of the best shows ever!) (and you know its true). That show was pure sweetness. How nice is it when a band the last time they were there and mixes it up. I loved RAPUNZEL, that is the best song in the history of music. ANTS was also extremely G... Not ever hearing that song live kind of had me down but as soon as I heard it I was PUMPED! Awesome show Steffan, Boyd, Leroi, Carter, and Dave. Can't wait until you return on the BUSTED STUFF tour, see yall in 2003, Hopefully, your Pal REN!
