Was also disappointed in the "super fan" lady that was there with her 11 year old son, really cool and dancing the whole show - but started talking to nearby fans during Spoon. Come on now.

The tape for night 2 sounds great. Minimal crowd noise.

N1 I was in the 5th row with my Last Stop sign and the woman behind me said I should cross it out and write You and Me instead (she had never heard of Last Stop). Ugh.

I honestly had no idea D&T had never played that before. But glad they did now!

This is very true. Both Spoon and pig sounded awesome.

I was really excited when those two were played, but I think finding out the reason they were played almost makes me less so. It was promising assuming he wanted to dig deeper into the catalog, but it doesn't seem that was actually the case. So, it may not be that we get more varied sets going forward. I guess the lesson here is we need more children requesting the jams we want to hear.

Were you Center, left, or right? And did he see your sign?

As crazy as this is to all of us, imagine just how happy that woman must be at every DMB show she goes to...

Seeing Pig played D&T style was the most surprised I've been looking at sets since Let You Down came back

The convo led to me saying something to the effect of hey U guys should try those. To which I got a big Whoa reaction. I told him my 6 year old loves those songs and made a sign that I'd be bringing to N1 to which he said he suddenly felt pressure now that a youngster was involved. I was unsure anything would come of it.
Goes without saying I left tonight pretty happy!

I asked what they would prefer and without hesitation 2 of them said Cornbread. Funny that it followed Spoon. I read stories about fans at shows and sometimes I wonder if they're real but experiencing that I don't doubt anymore.
Prior to these Philly shows the 4 or 5 d/t shows I've been to I've seen Old Dirt Hill and Dreamgirl signs. No offense to anyone that likes those tunes but I couldn't take it anymore.

I find it hard to believe a 6-year-old's favorite song is Spoon. Though if Dad made the sign and told the kid to hold it, kudos.

I think Mike's kid made the sign for him to hold.

No no lol

Dad plays the songs in the car frequently and then when home is learning to play them. My 6 year old says my playing doesn't sound close to what she hears in the car. Lol. So I enlisted her help and she made me the sign. She was not at the show.
I was lucky to cross paths w Matthews and told him the story.

i really still can't get over the atmosphere of these d&t shows. there HAS to be something that could be done in the future (if dave and tim ever tour again in the US) to create a more intimate feel, request audiences sit down and watch a performance... make it less of a "two way experience" with the audience participating and more about a one way delivery of performance to be heard by an audience.

i know there are tons of people who think that's a boring way to experience a performance, but when it's just two guys with acoustic guitars, that's kind of what it needs to be.
