    Let's see, I went to 6 or 7 shows in the early 90's before they broke out, I think the highest cover was $8.

    Had lunch with Dave around 1994 or so (friend of a friend of a friend)

    Yeah she goes to all the shows. SHe used to go to the Gorge (sp?) every year to see him as well. LIke I said she is a fan. To me I don't waste my money on music and concerts. I am building my retirement fund, and anything I buy is money away from that. Maybe that is why our relationship didn't work. LOL. Eh well, different strokes for different folks. I liked his music, but don't feel like anyone is really worth my money, when I can watch them on TV/DVD. Though my girlfriend would give me the line about "oh well its live, and its totally diff" and all that jazz. Eh well, life goes on. Ex for a reason.

    Good luck, and hope you have fun at the shows :)

    By the way, girls LOVE it if you say you like DMB. I found that out after my ex. :D I only know like two songs. #41, and hmm..can't recall the other one now..LOL

    Im going to be perfectly honest with you. Dave matthews band sucks. I'm sorry you had to hear this news over the internet, but you would have found out eventually.

    Hey Tim, there are some people that don't like Ferraris either. It is no big deal, as everythign in life is relative.

    Enjoy it. :)

    Opposite experience; I thought he was a bit of a flamer (sorry to offend) before I saw him in concert and now am a big fan... There's a reason why 99% of his shows sell out in the first few minutes.

    I found DM interesting at first, something different but really I just like to watch and listen to their drummer.

    Kenny,

    I do like him, but I like all musicians. However just because something sells out does not make it good. JLO's tours sell out too. ;)

    By the way, I LOVE Jenny from the block the song..haha..you can make fun of me now ;)

    I disagree. I have been to a few DMB concerts and a lot of concerts in general. I think DMB is one of the best live bands ever. Phish is up there too.

    I can't stand his Hee-Haw donkey voice.

    Never understood him or coldplay.

    Reminds me of lemmings running off the cliff. someone says they are cool and if a celeb likes them then they MUST be cool so I better buy it to be cool too.

    matt, i hear phish is awesome live also. even though im not a stoner, i still want to go to a phish show at some pint in my life. I like their more recent stuff, ie. farmhouse.
    chili peppers are great live. thats my biased opinion. Anthony keidis is so energetic on stange and jumps around pretty good for an old man (hes like over 35!)

    Definetly catch one of their shows. I am not a stoner either and I enjoyed the shows I've been to. I've never been to a Chili Pepper's concert, but I have heard a lot of their live music. I was not impressed by the music too much, maybe they are just really good entertainers.
