Show number 14 has got to be the best one yet. OSW is what they opened with at my very first show 7 years ago, so it always has sentimental value to me, and really got the night started the right way. Best of Whats Around and Hunger for the Great Light got the crowd rocking and it was obvious that the boys were at the top of their game tonight. Crash with a little Dixie Chicken @ the end was nice, and after that a lot of older stuff really made me happy and it was nice to hear that the crowd knew it and was really into it. Rhyme and Reason, Song that Jane likes were great treats, but the high light of the show was by far Say Goodbye. I haven't heard it live in a few years and was an absolute treat. Ants was alright, but I would have rather heard 41 or Watchtower.

The encore was one of the best that I've ever heard. Everyday with Dave's South African friend and the audience singing #36 the whole time gave me goosebumps. Two Step is always a great way to end the show on a high note.

Rashawn Ross is a great addition to the band, and I look forward to seeing them again in Hershey!

Dave as usual put on a great show which is typical, but I can't say it was the most exciting show I've ever been to. It was very moving and graceful, especially when his pal from Africa came out and sang Everyday, and Dave announcedl ater that if we couldn't have told already, that the same guy sang on the actualy album. SPAC definitely has that amazing chill environment that went along with the toneo f the show, he played a lot of older stuff and covered a few songs that I wasn't too familiar with...I also wasn't too sure that I liked the songs he played but it was cool to hear something different either way. Another moving part of the show was his solo acoustic song, "Sister", it was very special and gratifying to watch Dave tribute a song so passionately to his sister. The encore was jsut amazing the way they played Two step and that was the second time that I have seen him play that at SPAC...a few years back he actually started to play a saong, stopped his band b/c everyone was chanting Two step and they played Two step instead, ti was sick! I don't know if that was the same reason he played Two step last night, but everyone was screaming for Two step...could be coincidental...but carter really put on a show with his drumming skills at the end of Two step, and you could see him subdue and hang his head between his knees when they finished...it was awesome! What was even cooler was when everyone thought they were finished and Dave grabbed the mike and screamed "don't stop!" {cheering} over and over again, and the band continued to jam out....props to Boyd Tinsley too, who was having a blast with his violin, bouncing all over the place. My favorite song of the night was Crush, but that's me...looking at Friday's set lsit, I wished I could have seen that one, I just like more intense songs where Dave really gets into it, but it was still a great time!

Sick show. Every song was great. OSW great opener as it usually is, and BOWA started the show off great. For me the three best songs were LIOG, the jam was great from Boyds solo to Butch being the man on the piano (lighters), Song that Jane likes, i dont think anyone was expecting this one but it was amazing, The Idea of You, great song and i can't wait for the new album.

The encore was lacking. Sister was expected and its a good song, so that was okay, I was not feeling Everyday but it turned out to be okay at the end, Two Step.....great song, but i wasnt really in the mood, everyone i was around wanted dreaming tree and two guys even left when they heard two step. The encore was good but could have been better.

Overall it was a great night, and the weekend was amazing.

What an an amazing show. You knew that once Lie in our Graves was played, that it was going to be an awesome setlist for the rest of the night. To have Say Goodbye, and The Song that Jane Likes only to have Crush thrown in there too was perfect.

Kill the King was a cool song to hear live. I am looking forward to hearing that one again. Dave talked to the crowd a lot and was entertaining between songs. Night 2 SPAC was a great follow up to N1 and I hope they keep mixing up the songs the way that they have been. It leaves you never knowing what to expect. Besides Red Rocks and MSG N2, this was my favorite Dave Matthews weekend, mostly because some of the songs were so unexpected and very much appreciated.

What an amazing show. Probably the best set list I have ever seen and definitely the best set list i have ever heard live.

I have been to 10 DMB concerts and this is up there with the best of them (including Roseland Ballroom í05 and MSG N2 í05). I could have left after Lie in Our Graves (just look at what was played up until that point) and it would have been an amazing show. Then he played Warehouse, Say Goodbye, Crush and Ants!!!

Iíve heard Everyday at just about every show I went to last year, so I wasnít that pumped when it came onÖ Sure enough they brought out the South African dude and the song blew me away!!!

It is incredible how DMB comes up with new ways of out-doing themselves every time I see them. What a great show. What a great performance. Canít wait to see the boys back to back at RandallísÖ

Night 1 was sick, but night 2 was even better. OSW..BOWA...RR..WH...Say Goodbye...Ants...SONG THAT JANE LIKES (Amazing) sick setlist..couldnt asked for anything better..except mayb some raven or Dreaming tree.. Ive heard Two step too much and hate when I hear at every show people yelling " 2 step 2 step" jsut let the boys play what they want.. dont make them play songs they dont want to, because than Its not going to be up to par with their other songs..Besides that the show was sick..

This was my 5th DMB and my second favorite. Before the show I was wondering how they were going to top the night before because of the songs they played the first night; Proudest Monkey, Typical Situation, Big Eyed Fish, and many other favorites. Once we got in and the music started I knew this night was going to be amazing. The energy of the second night was a lot higher than the first night. One sweet world was a nice opener and Best of What's Around was amazing. I won't talk about each song but I will say that Warehouse is probably the best live DMB song I've ever heard. The lowrider tease in Butch's solo and the Louie Louie jam were amazing. Lie in Our Graves, Crush and Say Goodbye were also some of the best songs of the night. Then the encore, when Dave started playing everyday I was kind of dissapointed because he had played it the night before but when Vusi Mahlaseli came on I was amazed. Everyday and Warehouse made the night. Mahlaseli's vocals made the song amazing and he had such a unique voice. And not unexpectedly Two Step finished off the show nicely.

The Dave Matthews Band never disappoints and this year was no exception. The concert was amazing and moving. I never stopped dancing or singing along with the band. The band played six songs from the Crash album which happens to be my favorite. I loved the renditions of Say Goodbye and Two Step. Dave did a great acoustic solo performance of sister. He explained some lyrics of the song to the audience and it was heart warming. As always the rest of the group jammed during different solo hightlights. Boyd was especially awesome and had the crowd going wild. After seeing the set list of Friday nights show I wasn't sure what to expect on Saturday. I was not disappointed in the least. Next year I am going to be spending the weekend at SPAC and will be there for both performances.

Excellent show all around. However, after holding back on playing from the Stand Up album on Friday night, I was expecting to hear some of the great tunes form the album on Saturday. HFTGL was wicked-good, but I really wanted to hear some more from Stand Up (ODH, Dreamgirl, OOMH, AB Intro etc).

But I wont let that tarnish what was an excellent weekend, with some excellent folk, listening to some excellent music. By the way, after seeing DMB 8 times, tonights' Two Step was the best song I have heard!! See you at Fenway!

Canada loves DMB!

This show was worth flying in from Norway to see, hear and feel! I was hoping for a few more well know songs, but i got that from Dave in Birmingham when he performed solo. It was just awesome to see the whole band playing together.

It was interesting to be apart of the party before and after the show. I was lucky enough to have seats in the orchestra pit, so i got an amazing look at the band and the music "live". I will be back soon to see them again and feel the electric support from all fans attending the concert.
