Dave Matthews Band in Charlotte, NC


Last night had to be the music highlight of my life! My favoritest band Dave Matthews Band was in town for one night and I was there!!!

I started listening to DMB about 10-12 years ago, and they've been a constant in my music playlists. Other artistes come and go, but DMB just have these oldies but goodies that make my hair stand every time I listen to them. Do you have a certain artiste that make you feel this way? So you know how I feel!

Standing in the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre last night, I was in rapture for the whole TWO AND A HALF HOURS!! Yes, that was how long they played, no sets, no intermission. How awesome is this band? My friends and I were guessing at what the playlist was gonna be, and DMB didn't disappoint. They played so many of my favorites I was so ready to kiss their feet. (Yes, I can sometimes be dramatic like that).


They opened with Big-Eyed Fish and continued to play favorites (mine, at least) like Satellite, So Much to Say, and Dancing Nancies. And finally, when they did their encore, they finished with Trippin' Billies. That drove the crowd wild. And by then I was jumping up and down like a bunny on a sugar high.

And just because they played my all-time favorite song #41, they will be my favorite band for life!

Here is the set list for last night, if you are a DMB fan too!


  1. Dave Matthews, very big.. what a great time for you. Fun pics.

  2. How fun! My sister loves DMB too. She and her husband have travelled all over the world so for their honeymoon they just found where DMB was playing (New York State) and went there, then followed them to the next location and so on for 2 or 3 concerts and had a blast on the East Coast.

  3. I have never heard of DMB but I'll give them a listen. I love Prince and Def Leppard. (before your time)

    Hahahahahaha YOUR blog has word verification turned on. Grrrr.

  4. I'm not a fan of DMB, but I can appreciate hair-raising concerts. I had a very odd emotional reaction tonight when a subway performer started singing Boyz II Men "End of the Road," so apparently it doesn't take much to give me a thrill. :)

  5. Ooh, I'm glad you got to see them! It sounds like you had a great time :) Those stage lights look pretty awesome, too.

  6. jealous! I have always wanted to see them!

  7. Just checking for you to see if you have word verification!

  8. No you do not have word verification. Have a nice day.

  9. I love DMB, but I've gotta be honest, I haven't seen them in concert since before they made it big. I grew up in the DC area and I'd often visit my friends who were attending UVA. I gonna see them this year hopefully tickets prices won't be too high and some of you . They were awesome back then, I'd imagine they are even more so today.


I appreciate you stopping by and reading my blog! Do leave me a note!
