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...
Don W from Dallas, Texas
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.

IF I WANTED NEW MUSIC...
If i wanted new music, I'd buy an album. When I go to a show, I want to SING and dance to songs I love! This was not the case last night (9-20-22). DMB played 3 songs that people knew, and the rest? People were talking, leaving, yawning. People want their FAVORITE SONGS from 30 year old bands. I saw Dave last year in Irvine and it was INCREDIBLE. This year? A waste of money and time. I left an hour early and don't regret that. Maybe he should think about pleasing his FANS instead of treating his concerts like a jam session or promotion for new music.

DAVE MATTHEWS AT THE CLIMATE PLEDGE ARENA IN SEATTLE, WA - 2022
To begin, I would not call myself a huge DMB fan, but I did see him a few times back in the day and always enjoyed the songs and energy. Friday night in Seattle was disappointing, OK at best. I am sure his faithful thought differently, but the crowd looked disinterested and really only cheered at the end of songs out of respect for this so-called legend. He played a lot of songs that clearly most of the crowd did not recognize. I expected to hear all his hits, but we only got a few at the end, along with 2 covers...Sledge Hammer (Peter Gabriel) and All Along the Watchtower (Hendrix). The Hendrix cover was clearly the bright spot of the show as Mike McCready from Pearl Jam joined him on stage and ripped it, thank goodness! In the past year I have seen Lukas Nelson, Widespread Panic, The Drive by Truckers, David Grey, John Mayer, Phil Lesh, Trey Anastasio, Markus King, The Black Crowes, etc. and the DMB would have been blown off stage by all of them, not close!!! Good luck DMB
Jack from Chicago IL
Flew in from Chicago to go to the show with my
sister. First Dave show of the year 8 rows back
Center. Seen them a bunch at Alpine &
northerly Island. Boyd not being there
drastically changed the entire sound of the
band and songs- especially warehouse &
nancies. I agree 100% with my guy from
Indiana. The band was flat and it was obvious
the crowd was not into the new stuff. Band
beef seems likely Dave and Carter were the
only ones interacting with one another. The
fan demographic has changed and I Think
that’s how the band wants it. Bummer
