My first DMB concert. Long time fan, and like the last reviewer I have most of the discography, including some Dave and Tim only. Overall, the show was amazing, as expected. The set list favoured the new songs and Under the Table, which I was ok with. With so many songs to choose from it would be easy to say I wish I heard this or that. But that's an unreasonable expectation. I absolutely loved the extended jams, something often missing from studio production. And Tim's electric work was fantastic. My only disappointment was not hearing a few more acoustic tunes mixed in, hence my 4 rating. Maybe too harsh, my apologies.

SO MUCH TO SAY
I had the pleasure of seeing Dave last night in Bethel NY. The set list wasn't my favorite but I've been going to see him since the early 90's so I'm all about the old school jams. That's why I selfishly gave it 4 stars. If I'm being honest I must say that the band has never recovered from losing Boyd Tinsley. The band was at its best when he was a part of it. Anyone remember 2 Step in the rain at Giant Stadium? Anyone? I rest my case. But to be fair he still is great and puts on a great show for all ages. He ended the night with Wasting Time, So Much To Say and then brought the house down with Watchtower. Just enough to leave me wanting more and looking forward to the next one. Thank you DMB for the some of the best times of my life!

I LOVE DAVE MATTHEWS BAND BUT WAS ACTUALLY DISSAPOINTED
Saw him in 2016. Have most of his albums, In general I absolutely love him and the bands sound. This was the first time I was to see him live and took by whole family 7 of us on my nickel. It was dissapointing that he played very little of the songs I have come to love. Did a LOT of jams, and by a LOT, I mean a LOT! I will likely continue to buy his albums, but not lay out the kinda cash to see all the jams. Hey tunes don't even have to be A sides, B sides would be fine. I am cool with promoting new material for a new album too, that's just good business, I get it, and support it, but maybe a few less jams and a little more from the portfolio. With respect RM

SOUND QUALITY AFFECTED THE PLEASURE FOR ME
Was in the pit 10 feet off the rail. Maybe this was why the sound was terrible. Dave singing but cannot hear a balance with the instruments. Beats and Luscious layering sounded like they were coming through a one speaker clock radio. Love DM though and will try again but it’s a long way from home.
LisaB from San Francisco, California
Overall, the performance of the Dave Matthews band was very uninspired. It seemed like he was going through the motions. All he could say was thank you very much. He never introduced his band nor any song.
Bill from Jacksonville, Florida
Totally agree with Rob Jack and Steve, the band was flat, disinterested, and lacking enthusiasm. The void left by Boyd's absence cannot be filled by an organ. I think this is my last DMB show.

VOCALS / SOUND WAS AWFUL IN NASHVILLE
Not sure what the problem was but the vocal sound quality was very poor Saturday night. We were very disappointed in our experience. Not sure if it was an arena issue or Daves sound techs fault. We had good seat too...
