DMB - Hollywood Bowl 10.01.07

Last night I got to go see Dave Matthews Band at the Hollywood Bowl. I've seen him a few times before, and always have great luck with him and the band. I have friends that have seen him on both great nights and sub-par nights. Luckily, the few times I've seen him it's like he knows I'm there because he has either brought out new songs or songs they haven't played in years for the first time at the show. In addition, I had the most amazing seats in the center front row of the terrace boxes almost directly behind the soundboard. Easily some of the best tickets to a concert I've ever had the privilege of having. That could not have been without an amazing favor from a very close friend. Last night at the Bowl my string of DMB luck was no different. When you talk to die hard DMB fans they always want to compare setlists, and what was the best they've seen or certain versions they've seen. It's all done in a pissing contest type way. It can be somewhat annoying. Either way, the clear highlights of the show last night were "The Stone", "Bartender", "Jimi Thing", and "So Much --> Too Much".

Sounds like you had a great time. Do I know the very close friend who provided the tickets?
