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.

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.

DMB 07/28/2021

Saw them last night. Major props for playing for 3 hours on a sticky hot July night. We drove 4 hours to hear them play. Great setlist and jams, venue, parking, crowd and concessions. Big complaint with the front of house audio. It was way too boomy and muddy. I hope this gets fixed for the rest of the tour!

NOT WHAT I EXPECTED

Was really hoping for way more than I got. Not enough Solos from the horns. Tim Reynolds, or the Drums. First times ever seeing him. Kinda disappointed. Was not really as impressed as I had hoped for. Crowd had the Vibe. From what I've heard, his second show is far better, but sorry to say. Once is enough for me.

DISAPPOINTED

Cannot believe he didn’t play crash, they are brilliant musicians but the concert was very monotonous

FIRST DMB SHOW EVER; LEFT EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED

A couple things to note about the concert on 7/15/2022 in Camden, NJ. The venue (waterfront music pavilion) was not a good spot. Seating was extremely tight, it was insanely hot & claustrophobic, & sound quality was not good at all. As for the band, the set list was horrible. They played only 2 of their classic hits, the rest newer stuff. I’m all about appreciating the new stuff but I came for the classics too which they played almost to none. Dave didn’t really interact with the crowd, when he did talk he was hard to understand. It was one of the most disappointing experiences I have ever had. I’ve watched concerts on YouTube all the way through that were nothing like the one I attended. I don’t even feel like I actually attended a DMB concert that’s how bizarre it was.

AVERAGE

Awful sound quality in the lawn. They need to have actual real speakers throughout the venue and behind the crowd for the rear. How a concert venue has poor sound design and quality is completely beyond me and makes no sense. DMB set list was very mellow and lackluster. Dave played hard and so did he band but it just was not the best show by any means. And no Boyd or getting a replacement is a big mistake, DMB fans loved Boyd and the violin. Always love Dave and always will. Fix sound quality and the shows will be sooo much better!
