First of all, let me say that Dave is not only my favorite musician, but also my favorite entertainer. He is hilarious! He played Everyday and his voice was pure and sweet. I love to hear him play the guitar solo as well. His interview had me laughing the whole way down to Irvine for the Verizon show. He talked about having his kids on the road with him and told one of his famous poop stories about what baby poo looks like. He kept saying that he was bored and was probably giving a boring interview. The best part was towards the very end when he was making fun of Ryan Seacrest, the DJ we all cannot stand who kisses up to Dave in an annoying way. He imitated Ryan in this high, girlie voice. The last song he played was Best of What's Around and we all thought that this was a prelude to what we would get to hear that night, but no such luck. This is a great song live and it was beautiful. I always enjoy hearing a Dave interview...you never know what to expect!
Tonights show was brilliant Gov't Mule opened while everyone found their seat. He did his job with warming the crowd up. At about 8:35 the band came on that's when they began with So Right this song featured a great solo from Leroi. Next was Busted Stuff which sounded great. Following BS Bartender was played with some terrific solos from all of the band members. SMTS was next I was hoping for ASTB into TM to no avail. The Space Between was then played this Irvine crowd seemed like an Everyday type of Crowd. Raven was a swell song that is quickly becomming a personal favorite. Crush, one of Dave's best songs was then played with stirring emotion and it was jammed for a long time. Help Myself was played back in 1999 (my first show) and tonight it was also played I really like that song. If I had it all was ok but Rhyme and Reason quickly got things going again. Pig was beautifully played and seeemed to be enjoyed by everyone in the sold out house. Where Are You Going was played by the man of steal:). Fool To Think was nice and quick which had Stefan dancing up a storm. Grey Street was fabulous and then the biggest Highlight of the night had to be Everyday with only the second time I know of where the crowd sang Honey, Honey and the band responed with playing #36 it was totally awsome. The maybe the best Watchtower I have ever seen out of 3 with Haynes doing some fine solos with his slide, this was a great way to end the set. The Encore continued the greatness with Willie Nelsons' Ain't It Funny... to cap off the night Dave and His Band ended the night with a rousing Tripping Billies. All in All a mighty fine show filled with a mix of old and new. Out of 10 I give it an 8.25556
Just got back from the Irvine show and had a great time. The setlist drew a lot from the upcoming Busted Stuff album, including a personal favorite (Grey Street). I thought the crowd energy was somewhat mixed, although I was down front in the orchestra section so I couldn't really tell too much. The highlight of the show for me was the interwoven #36/Everyday, with the audience doing most of the vocals for the #36 parts ("Hani (or honey, however you sing it), Hani, come and dance with me..."). Hearing 12,000 people all singing the same thing is pretty amazing. The other highlight had to be the insanely high-powered version of Watchtower, with guest Warren Haynes from Gov't Mule putting some nice electric guitar on the song. Anyway, the setlist was a nice mix, mostly drawing from Crash, Everyday, and Busted Stuff. We were pretty much shut out of UTTAD, but they've been through that material on previous stops to Southern California, so all is forgiven :) My only complaint (and it's minor) is that Dave tends to, lyrically at least, try to fix stuff that's not broken. For instance, I thought that the lyrics he used on early versions of, say, Grey Street, were much better than what appeared on the LWS, and I have no idea what he's changed them to now (can't really hear the words live). Same goes for Busted Stuff. I never could understand the lyrics to Raven, even on the LWS :), so it didn't matter much that he mixed those up. All in all, a very fun show, and a great way to end an otherwise blah Thursday.
It was another beautiful SoCal day capped with a DMB show, hard to ask for anything more. I started by surfing some small waves at Salt Creek and stopped by Wahoo's for a veggie burrito. They gave me table #41 (no lie) and I was hoping that it was a sign of things to come. The crowd seemed to arrive later than everyone at the LA show. There were so many empty seats at the start I just worked my way down to right behind the soundboard. Overall the show was solid and the sound was excellant from where I was. (the sound in LA had too much echo and sounded like a hockey barn) Some song highlights included Crush, Pig and Help Myself, which was a real treat. The event staff was cool, but there was way too much litter after the show.....flyers everywhere. Well, I got my three shows in, enjoy the rest of the tour.....
Whew! We made it out of L.A. and that stuffy Staples Center safely and now back to reality: tailgaters, vomit, and people relieving themselves in the bushes...now this is DMB atmosphere! I've never been to Verizon Wireless before and let me say - what ridiculous lines. I've never waited 30 minutes to enter a venue before. How frustrating was that? This was by far the most mellow show I've ever been to. Very relaxed and slow paced, yet full of surprises. I guess when it rains, it pours - because for the second night in a row I heard Busted Stuff and they haven't been playing a lot of that on this tour so far. Dave comes out and says "Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to this evening's presentation..." I expected them to sing Happy Birthday to Boyd but instead Dave just said something about it being his Sweet 16th today. The crowd was really into So Much to Say, but what I want to know is where's the bridge? Has anyone seen it? Not me, not in these last few shows at least. The Space Between was inevitable tonight since they didn't play it the last two shows, but it was nice to hear. For the first time ever I heard Raven and loved it. Another treat for me was Crush, my absolute favorite DMB song ever. The Stefan/Boyd jam on this was out of this world. Then just when I thought we were going to hear Don't Drink the Water, they bust out with Help Myself. What a rare gift. Right in the middle of Rhyme & Reason when Dave's singing "Oh how I wish I didn't smoke or drink to reason with my head," this drunk girl looses her balance and falls down in the isle...kinda ironic. The great highlight for me tonight was Pig! I have not heard this since Summer of '99 and was so excited...Look here are we on this CHILLY night...Don't burn the PIG! During Everyday the crowd sang the #36 intro and then Dave & Boyd both sang it at the end. Just like in Chula Vista, Warren Haynes came on stage to sing Watchtower, only this time he sang a verse. Dave came out for a solo encore of Ain't it Funny How Time Slips Away and the band joined him for a very energetic Tripping Billies. And that my friends is the end of my Summer 2002 Tour. Bummer...Enjoy the rest of the tour. Until next year - Peace, Love, and God Bless - Heather
After not having seen the band in a year or two this was a great show to catch. They played a lot of stuff off of Everyday and quite a few of the reworked Lillywhites that will be on Busted Stuff. After the So Right, Busted Stuff, Bartender opening, I would have been happy with whatever the remaining songs were. Bartender is unbelievable live. I was surprised to hear FTT, but found Dave's electric work amazing. I was enjoying the fact that Dave used a number of different guitars throughout the show. I think he may be getting away from the six-string acoustic as a crutch and actually might become a well-rounded guitarist with ease. Highlights were definately WAYG (sounds excellent with the band.) Pig (why haven't they played this song to death after BTCS? It rocks live and everyone who went to get pretzels and beer during this song missed out) Boyd's Wah-Violin on Everyday was amazing (now we have something to thank Glen Ballard for other than some really great songwriting... introducing the Wah to Boyd)
Grey Street is amazing (I'm glad they shelved all of the Lillywhites because of the reworking of this song alone... it is awesome. - BTW although he didn't play GIG, the radio station after the concert played the Buisted Stuff version of it and it is amazing) Watchtower with Warren Haynes (by far, without exception, bar none, the most rockin' version of this song I have ever heard the band do, live, recorded, or othewise. Warren is amazing) Dissapointments: I have to tell you, I miss Timmy... Where are you Tim? Ryhme and Reason isn't the same without him. I wish LeRoi and Butch had stepped out a little more. I guess in exchange we did get to see a lot of Boyd's patented rocking out. (BTW Happy Birthday again Boyd. This makes the second Boyd Birthday show I've been to.) Dave did not do Dock of the Bay at the end of Aint it Funny... I was really looking forward to it. Overall, one of the best shows I have ever been to except that Verizon sucks... would someone please explain to me why my Verizon cell phone wouldn't get reception in the parking lot to the Verizon ampitheater. If you ask me that's really poor advertising! Wish I could be there in Shoreline. See you all next go round..
The crowd (on the lawn at least) SUCKED! I spent the entire show straining to hear because everyone around me was talking about everything but the concert. It was un$%#@ingbelievable. I've never been to a concert where people seemed so not interested in listening to the music but more concerned with hanging out. I really felt as if I was at the local high school hang out. Not to mention the group of 16 year olds who were half-naked and drugged up. I don't think they even know what songs the Dave Matthews Band plays. It was ridiculous. People need to lay off the coke. Needless to say I was very frustrated--I am a huge fan--the Staples show rocked--I saw Dave at Jay Leno--it was a great week and then. . .the venue is horrible too. Apparently people have figured out how to sneak in the venue from the hill behind the lawn so I felt as if I was on the Mexican border--people were running down the hill, hopping the fence, and scattering into the crowd with security guards in fast pursuit. What a nightmare? The best part of the night was the drive back to LA when Star 98.7 played Dave's Star Lounge performance from earlier in the day.
My third of three straight shows here in SoCal...It was an incredible run, but unfortunately I have to say that for me, top to bottom, this was the weakest of the three shows. A lot of it had to with the fact that our seats weren't great and I paid WAY too much for my ticket, as well as the fact that I was pretty worn down from the other two shows and getting to bed at like 2:00 AM for three straight nights! But the setlist, too, even though there were some AMAZING parts, had a lot more 'down' spots for me than either Chula or LA. The start of the show--SO RIGHT (I called it for the opener), BUSTED STUFF, and BARTENDER--was about as good a start as you could expect; Bartender sounds more powerful every time I hear it. I got stuck in the bathroom line for SMTS and TSB, although I could still tell they sounded good. As big a LWS fan as I am, I just couldn't get into RAVEN last night, so my energy dropped a bit at that point. But boy did CRUSH bring it right back up!! I hadn't seen this live since Riverbend in 06/00, and it's never sounded better. They've changed the Carter jam at the end a bit (it still rocked though!), and Boyd and Stefan had a little jam duel/face-off right in the middle of the stage for like 2-3 minutes--they're all so cool! HELP MYSELF/IIHIA/R&R--here's where the show took a big dip for me. Again, maybe I just didn't have as much energy at the start of the show, but I just couldn't get into these songs. Help Myself was a nice way to keep things fresh and make sure the show was different from the shows in Chula and LA, but why not Recently or DIDO to do that? IIHIA is just not one of the best Everyday songs in my opinion, and as much as I've tried, R&R has just never been a favorite of mine and I can't get into it as much as other people. So having those three songs in a row definitely hurt the energy of the show for me...I think this was more of a "matter of taste" show, because I talked to some people who really like all those songs and thought the show last night was amazing, and that's fine. Definitely not a nearly-unanimously weak show like Dodger Stadium last year. PIG was fantastic, I'd never seen it live before and I really wanted to at some point this week. I never realized how intense Dave gets when he's singing the end of this song. Right after that, I was surprised to hear myself saying "I could really go for WAYG right now," and sure enough! Eventually they'll need to expand their live performance of it, but this really could become one of their best songs! FOOL brought the energy down again a bit for me; it's good but not great. But then just as the 3 songs we had to start the show were incredibly strong, how 'bout these 3 we had to finish? GREY ST./EVERYDAY (#36)/AATW? Are you kidding me? Awesome! The crowd was even more into Everyday than in LA--as soon as the first notes of the intro started the entire place was singing "Honey, honey, come and dance with me," and Watchtower blew Monday's version out of the water. Warren Haynes is DA MAN!! His solo was one of the sickest things I've ever heard! Three nights in a row we had a strong encore...I'd never heard AIN'T IT FUNNY before, but I liked it a lot and it sounded fantastic, as all the Dave solos have. BILLIES was a great closer, maybe even tighter than in Chula. Boyd went nuts and had another little jam face-off with Stefan. It was Boyd's birthday, so I was hoping they'd celebrate by letting him go off on LIOG--haven't heard that in three shows last year or three shows this year--but the other three songs I really wanted to hear (Crush, Pig, Bartender) all made appearances and were all excellent. Thanks for a great three shows in SoCal, hope to see y'all next year sometime!
Bless you, DMB, for making the last of my three nights incredible! Now let me step up onto my soapbox for a moment here...just read past it if you don't care. ***SOAPBOX MOMENT*** Please, my friends. Everyone loves to go to a good DMB concert and have a great time. But does that mean getting s**tfaced drunk and not caring a single bit about the people around you or the good people who allow our favorite band to play there? Last night, I saw complete disrespect all over the place for other people and also to the venue. People cutting in lines and not waiting their turn.....getting drunk and spilling their beer everywhere....the fiasco that was getting out of the parking lot at the end of the night.....the huge amounts of trash and beer bottles left in the parking lot afterward. Come on, people. Let's all grow up and have some fun, but have some fun responsibly. Please! ****End of SOAPBOX MOMENT**** Now the show....oh, lordie! The boys got off to a wierd start with SO RIGHT. But it sounded good. It's funny how my least favorite songs off "Everyday" are becoming my favorite. BUSTED STUFF - Oh, how they grooved on this one! It didn't seem as slow as last night. It seemed more like a good steady groove to get the crowd going. Awesome version. Then they played one of the four songs I've been waiting three nights to hear, BARTENDER. Of course, this meant I wouldn't be hearing one of my other four songs, Big Eyed Fish, since they didn't play it before BARTENDER, but oh how I loved it anyway! I love, love, love, the BARTENDER! Another reason I can't wait until the new album. Dave wailing away before the closing jam almost brings tears to my eyes. Then, it was time to play a classic, SO MUCH TO SAY. Of course, the crowd got dancing good with this one. And you know, Dave danced a little, but not nearly as much as last night. But that's just fine. THE SPACE BETWEEN - A lot of feeling in this one. They played it better than usual, in my opinion. Then they played RAVEN!!!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Another of the four songs I was waiting to hear! And it was sooo good, y'all. I don't even care if the crowd didn't seem into it as much as other songs. There's something about RAVEN that gets me going! RAVEN! Then they followed it up perfectly with CRUSH. Not one of the four, but a song I've been waiting to hear live nevertheless. The jam at the end was beautiful. Surprisingly, Dave probably danced the most during this one. I can't wait to hear this again. HELP MYSELF - This song....always nice when they pull out a rarity. And you can tell why it's a rarity. There's parts of the song that are just okay, then there are parts which are awesome, like the chorus. At times, the band didn't seem to sure about playing this one. The instruments really seemed sparse at the beginning, too. IF I HAD IT ALL - My dog's favorite DMB song, although she wasn't there. Of course, she thinks Dave is saying "If I had a dog..." This is the moment in the concert when my girlfriend and I realized the drunk idiot behind had spilled his beer cup where we were standing. Her purse and shoes were soaked. Thank goodness we had bought some nifty DMB flip-flops. She put those on and I stood in the puddle for her. It would take a great feat to bring our ticked-off mood back up. The boys tried real good with RHYME & REASON. This is one of my favorite songs off "Under the Table..." The anger in the song was good for my mood. Allowed me to vent a little. Then the boys made us forget our worries by playing PIG!!!! The last of my four songs was played! So they almost killed me with happiness. If they had played Big Eyed Fish, I don't know what would have happened. But PIG was great. Again, DMB, thank you. WHERE ARE YOU GOING sounded good. It was in a great point in the setlist as well. Good place to relax everyone a bit. Then, Dave thanked us all for coming out. And it sounded like the thanks he gives before playing the set closer. So I was a bit confused when they played FOOL TO THINK. It's another song off "Everyday" I used to hate but am starting to like more. And it turned out the band still had more up their sleeves! GREY STREET - Great energy. Again, sounded like the set closer....but it wasn't. Would it be EVERYDAY? Again, EVERYDAY with the full band. This time, I think Dave got some #36-audience-participation. At least, everyone around me was singing it. I guess I'll be able to tell on the bootleg. Was this the end of the set? NO! Warren Haynes came out for ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER. And it was just amazing. Warren sang the last verse this time, and the whole band was just on fire! Perfect closer!..........encore break.............AIN'T IT FUNNY HOW TIME SLIPS AWAY - Thank you, Dave for playing this. My dad raised me on Willie Nelson, so I am so thankful Dave decided to cover this. He played by himself on this one. But the band joined him for a rousing TRIPPING BILLIES at the end. The band came to full lifem, too. Boyd was all over the place. Carter was slamming the drums shile the stage lights strobed like mad. And, and, and....it had to end sometime. And so does my long-assed review. Thank you, DMB, for a great three nights. Thank you all you wonderful DMB fans for being a part of my and my girlfriend's life in whatever way. I love you all, and will be talking to some of y'all soon. --------------Scotty Love
This was my third DMB show and let me tell you this was the best by far but here we go....So Right -Im not a big Everyday fan but this was done nicely. Busted Stuff- I love this song can't wait for the album. Bartender- Done very well but I wanted BEF. SMTS- oh gotta love old Dave. Space Between- Not my favorite but gave me a chance to dance. Raven- New lyrics same good sound it. Crush- WOW !!! Boyd is God and WOW! Help Myself- Great to see an old one dissapointed that people used this as the bathroom song. IIHIA- Basic. R&R-basic but decent.Pig - YEA!!!! finally got to hear it live. WAYG- Ireally like it hope it doesnt get played out. FTT- just another Everyday song. Grey Street- Outstanding live song to hear. Everyday--->#36 - Love #36 so ill put up with the rest. Watchtower -Warren + DMB = greatest version EVER. AIFHTSA- Loved it. Tripping Billies- What a closer Boyd and Carter stole the show. But overall Great show and I want to thank Dave for playing enough slow songs to dance with the lovely lady I brought ...See y'all at shoreline
A great show at Irvine. Too bad a lot of people couldnt see the special intracasies of it! Dave rips into Help Myself a true rarity and everyone goes runnin for the snack stand to grab a beer! I love the Everyday (#36) mix but the "Honey, Honey" could only be faintly heard from the crowd. Nevertheless, I was into it. I was stoked when they let Boyd go off on the Crush outro. Warren Haynes blew up the crowd on Watchtower, his slide guitar playing is amazing! And Being the teaser that he is, Dave played with my emotions and started playing #40, luckily Aint It Funny... is a pretty good song. And of course, better than ever was a Tripping Billies that Carter shredded up on the drums!
First off it was cool to see Boyd playing on his birthday. So happy birthday Mr. Tinsley! I thought the guys did a nice job of mixing the setlist up after last night's rockin' Staples show. 32 songs were played between the two days with only three repeats. This was the last of my three shows for the tour and was glad to get a nice show. Somehow I've managed to see Help Myself three time out of 13 shows. Gotta love the "Dannnngerous hours". Aside from the obvious highlight of Haynes on Watchtower, the Before These Crowded Streets songs seemed to have a nice edge. Stefan seemed to be having a blast during the show bouncing and smiling often on stage. Also, the band had Boyd hitting the low notes on Everyday, which coupled with some good crowd singing up front made for a sweet rendition. My best friend and I started out at the third row, but by the time So Right started we were first row right in front of Dave thanks to security. A fun way to finish off my run. I'd say tonight's show was on the same level if not a tad better than last night's. Thank you, thank you, thank you DMB!
What a unique show the boys put together tonight. Just like last night at Staples it was incredible, but it was 180* different. Last night was more upbeat and carefree where tonight seemed to have a much jazzier, calmer feel to it. Loved the opener that really got the crowd into it and I love the suave mood of Busted Stuff. There were some surprises personally, but I'm glad I got them because it was the first time I've heard some of the songs in person. I was holding out hope that when Warren joined the boys on stage that Cortez the Killer might be an order, but Watchtower was one of the best I've ever heard, my friends and I were discussing before the encores how can you blow the roof off of a place that A) has no roof and B) just sent it into the stratosphere. I was really hoping to hear Tripping Billies as the final encore and as always Dave did not disappoint. What a fantastic last two nights its been, I can't wait to see them again.
If the word for last night's Staples show was energy then this night was pacing. A superb show all around, it really used the tempo of song's to dictate the feel the night. Before I get into the review, I have to say that the Verizon Amphiteatre has got to be the oddest shaped theatre in all the land...highlights...the emotion of the opening trio of SO RIGHT, BUSTED STUFF, and BARTENDER was awesome, dave really enjoys singing these songs...CRUSH, which seems to appear less and less these days...HELP MYSELF, which initiated a stunned silence from the crowd and a series of hushed, "what is this?" remarks--cool song, as always...PIG, which has become a breahtaking song, Boyd gets more the song than he used to and dave nails the lyrics--"all good things must come to end someday"...and the encore, exactly what I wanted, the willie nelson song is my favorite of dave's solos and then TB, which always ends a show on an upbeat note--but this version seemed different, there was an incredibly long jam toward the end, dave just walked away from the microphone and didn't really come back, ignoring lines and just jamming...damn cool...well, for my first predominantly sober dave show after 20 inebriated ones, I gotta say it was still a damn good time
I have one word to describe this show.disappointment. I have seen Dave 32 times now and this show would no even crack my top 20. Don't get me wrong, it is always a pleasure to see the boys perform, I just felt they lacked the excitement and luster that I have become so accustomed to. The only two bright spots of the evening were Watchtower and Tripping Billies. The band actually seemed to get into these numbers and have a little fun while they were at it. The rest of the songs, the boys just seemed to be going through the motions.
I must say that the band was definitely on for this evening, an incredible mix of old and new songs and the crowd was just into this evening. Of the concerts in So Cal, I would have to say this was the best by far. Busted Stuff, Bartender and I was so, so, so happy to hear Pig live for the first time. I was just jamming in my seat and the crowd loved, although not many knew the song, I think it was still a crowd pleaser. Everyday/#36 was a great song, it's just amazing seeing an entire crowd sing a song and know that all your worries have been left behind, if for just a moment. Watchtower rocked with AGAIN with Warren Haynes on guitar, Tripping Billies kicked ass at the end, although I was hoping for Lie in Our Graves, need not worry still more shows for me in Washington. See you then!
There is nothing better than seeing dave on a breezy night in an open air ampitheater...there's something about his music that is soothing--absolutely magical...and with a packed house, it was nothingless than magical. Dave lit up the night with a powerpacked set including the intoxcatingly beautiful Crush and Where are you going.. i must say.. i am EAGERLY anticipating the arrival of busted stuff.. although i am definitely not a big fan of the Everyday tracks.. they are definitely soundin better live.. and they seemed to have improved since the last tour.. I was luckily graced to hearing the rarity Help Myself.. always good to hear.. as well Aint is funny.. Right before the encore when they played Watchtower.. i just have to say one thing: AMAZING!! the vibrant energy shared w/ Warren hayes on guitar was absolutely mindblowing.. Irvine was an amazing amazing show.. the new album is gonna be awesome!! i also saw star wars earlier that day.. it was the best day of my life.. i couldnt ask for more.. star wars.. and an excellent show by the greatest band in the world
6th show and not the best. A little dissapointed because last night was just ok and monday was so good. The set tonight just wasn't my favorite. Great venue tho and great seats. Top to bottom: 1. So Right - one of the better everyday songs BUT not a way I want a show to start 2. Busted Stuff - slow and mellow, same as last night 3. Bartender - awesome 4. SMTS - good, liked it 5. TSB - just as I did It, they need to stop playing this song 6. Raven - carter was awesome, and it had a great ending 7. Crush - highlight, boyd was amazing 8. Help Myself - great surprise, liked it a lot 9. IIHIA - everyday everyday everyday 10. Ryhme and Reason - GREAT!! 11. Pig - BEST SONG OF THE NIGHT 12. WAYG - same as last night 13. Fool to think - ok 14. Grey street - awesome 15. Everyday (36) - ok 16. Watchtower - so good live encore: 17. 40 teaste - JUST PLAY IT, its such a good song 18. AIFHTSA - so cool 19. Billies - great song, but i was looking for LIOG OVERALL - good show but it was boyd's bday...i was expecting a LIOG or a 41. A little dissapointed witht he set. Oh well, theres always next year. Adios.
From what I saw of this show, it was fantastic. I enjoyed the setlist from the Staples show the night before better, however, the energy from the crowd more that made up for it. A big thumbs down to Verizon Amputheater though. Traffic was a nightmare. I live about 20 miles from the place and it took me 2 hours to get in there. The parking lot was closed, so I had to park accross the street for a 2 mile hike. The restroom access is horrible. I waited 15 minutes and missed all of "Crush" because of it. Even after all of that..it was still a beautiful night. I agree with earlier comments, "Watchtower" was the best I have ever heard. Great show guys!!! Can't wait to see you all again!
Three great shows in SoCal! Very few repeats, lots of variety. Besides the obvious Watchtower and Boyd's "WAWA" Violin in Everyday/36, standouts were What You Are (Coors and Staples) with the new bluesy ending and Where Are You Going is just a beautiful song! I also must say that I enjoyed dancing next to a lovely lady in Terrace 11, Row DDD...If youre out there send me an email. :o) Dont know when my next shows gonna be but I do know it wont be soon enough!
