INTERESTING

Bad sound, long jams that didn't flow well into the next song. They covered sledge hammer and fly like an eagle...really??? They could have replaced those 2 songs with Dancing Nancies and Ants Marching, at least it would have been his stuff. I've see a dozen of his concerts and this one goes down as the worst.

BETHEL WOODS CENTER FOR THE ARTS

Going threw the motions. No opening act. Instead this recorded voice of the rules of the amatheater. Thought dave would come out early. Nope 25 mins late. Thought dave would of said something about the delay but nothing. Odd pauses between some songs . Seemed like dave just looked at the band like what do you want to play. Ross was singing backup a few times. When they showed him on the big screen . He looked like a kid who's mother made him sing for his grand parents. Dave has not been to bethel in years counted the days till the concert. Left early.

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!

DMB FAILS AND SO DOES DTE

Was really disappointed in the play list and was hoping to hear at least "Crash". Left at 10:00 because we were so bored. Dave doesn't seem to care too much about his fans...very little interaction. As for DTE: they should re-name the lawn seats section because there is barely any lawn left. It's all dirt. Dirt seats would be more accurate. There are a few patches of grass on the far right and left but not a good view of the stage. Probably not going back this year; I'd rather listen to Pandora.

SHOCKING

Worst sound quality of any concert I've ever been to. Any energy in the crowd was completely deflated 30 mins in. Complete disappointment.

UNINSPIRED

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.
