    Just scored two lawn seats for the tour opener in Houston May 18th. This will be the first DMB show for my wife and I. Looking forward to it. On a side note, the tickets were $40.50 each and my total bill from Ticketmaster was $111.50. $30 in fees to sell me a pair of concert tickets. That's almost the price of a third ticket. :evil:

    There will be drunk frat boys at any show where booze and drunk girls are available. I've seen plenty of drunk idiots at PJ shows as well. Get reserved seats to eliminate most of the idiots.
    Alright, alright, alright!

    The stereotype obviously is that his fan base is a bunch of drunk frat boys. For those who have actually seen him live, is this accurate? is their a large contingent of those folks at the shows?

    ^^This. There will be idiots at every show, just do your best to ignore them and just enjoy the music! DMB makes that very easy! :) Also, since DMB have been around for 21 years now, your 'frat boys' are probably more like middle aged men by now :lol:


    And norm, thanks for posting 'What We Know So Far'-- I was gonna post that but you beat me to it! Good summary including some things I had no idea about on that. Just is getting me even more excited for DMB!!

    Less than a month for me til my 1st of 3 DMB shows this summer!!! Bring on Hartford 1 and both Jones Beach dates!!! :D :D

    i am SUPER STOKED about the new record! i thought that Big Whiskey & The GrooGrux King was a NICE return to form, and to find out lillywhite is on board....hells yeah! i've got the Big Whiskey blanket hanging up in my main music room, alongside a few PJ posters. i love DMB & sure, there are some asses at their shows, but there are asses EVERYWHERE... it's a great show & they're super-tight musicians, as well. my favorite record of his is The Lillywhite Sessions or The Summer So Far (as i've also heard it called). if you don't count that one, because of its boot status, then it's got to be Before These Crowded Streets. i've always liked his solo stuff with tim reynolds & stefan hit the nail on the head in the big whiskey dvd when he said that tim coming back into the fold brought their sound back "home". trey anastasios' playing wasn't bad on Some Devil or on the Dave & Friends Tour, either...wish i could make it to a show this year, but will have to wait until next year...new album soon!!!!

    Hey all,

    I scored myself two weeks in Toronto for work and made sure it matched up with the Toronto show (June 2).
    Does anyone have one spare ticket? I let my warehouse membership lapse, as I had low seniority, and wasn't a fan of the message boards.

    If anyone has a ticket, please PM me!!!

    New album in the FALL! From antsmarching.org: http://www.antsmarching.org/news/2012/05/04/DMB-Album-Clearly-has-a-Fall-Release-Date

    "Stefan has already tweeted it. Rashawn mentioned it to a fan. What more do you need to know that the 2012 Dave Matthews Band album won't be here until the fall? How about if you read it in Spanish?

    Boyd Tinsley gave an interview to ESPNDeportes (that's ESPNSports in English, which doesn' t look nearly as cool as "Deportes") and talked tennis and the new album. The English Translation, which is not perfecto, does basically say that the album will be released in the fall (it actually says Autumn, but we're not nit-picky).

    Boyd also gives a mention of a film he's producing, entitled Faces In The Mirror. That movie will be appearing in a few months, so keep an eye out for that as well."

    I can't wait to see DMB live again. Haven't seen the band since 06. I did see Dave and Tim last year but not full band. I love all their music.

    You're in for a real treat!! Full report expected after the show! :)


    So happy the tour is starting soon because that means I'm seeing DMB soon!!! The highlight of my summer for the past 3 years has been seeing DMB with my best friends. Any songs that anyone is hoping to hear at their shows this summer? Here's my list:

    Songs I've never heard before that I most want to hear: Drive In Drive Out (DMB holy grail), Joy Ride, Typical Situation, Minarets, The Dreaming Tree, Spoon (latter two would complete BTCS live for me, my favorite DMB album!)

    Songs I just want to hear because they have rocked live: Stay, Granny, The Stone, Warehouse, Pig, You Might Die Trying, Write A Song, Kill the King (fingers crossed! ROCKED in Atlantic City!), Best of What's Around, Lie In Our Graves, Alligator Pie

    Yes, I love Stay! :D So joyful and so fun live. Million times better live than the album too! I've only heard it once in 9 shows and I'd love to hear it again.

    That Neil cover would be great, too. I think Dave covers Neil quite well, saw him do Needle & the Damage Done last year and thought he sang and played it great. As for covers to bring back, I would not mind hearing Sledgehammer. So funky and fun live! The Mile High version is fantastic!

    6 days til I see them in Charlotte! Want to hear Two Step, You Might Die Trying, Seek Up, Lie in our Graves. The two I would die to see though would be Dreaming Tree and Grey Street, but I don't think I'll get either.

    There's a decent chance you could get Grey Street, I definitely think you could hear it!! I wish I could say there's a decent chance for Dreaming Tree- it's one of my most wanted- but unfortunately I don't think there's a good chance of hearing it. But like PJ, with DMB you really never know when they're going to whip out a rarity!

    I used to be a huge DMB fan, but haven't really listened to them in years. I just read through some of this thread and it's really making me want to go back and relisten to their stuff. I've seen them live a few times..great show.
