I finally saw DMB live last night at Shoreline (it was a first for me going to Shoreline as well). It was an amazing show and I can’t believe I haven’t gone sooner. My brother and sister-in-law go at least once a year and I’ve never been able to go with them. I had a blast.
Ended up in center seats right behind the sound and lighting crew. Had bought lawn seats. One of the guys I was with is allergic to smoke. If you’ve been to a DMB concert, especially in the bay area, there are lots of kinds of smoke. He complained at the information desk and they moved us all into seats. Sadly enough, that still didn’t help my friend, but he did manage to get us fabulous seats!
The show was just incredible. They are all amazing musicians. I wish I could find the playlist somewhere because I don’t actually know what songs I listened to and would like to get some of them…more than the radio played ones. I think my favorite part was when they did a rendition of Crosby, Stills, and Nash’s “For What It’s Worth”. Every time Dave said, “STOP,” he went silent and the crowd sang “Hey, what’s that sound. Everybody look what’s going down.” Have to say, it was the best audience participation ever!
If you haven’t seen a DMB concert–Go!
