Dave Matthews Band Camden, NJ 6/28, 6/29/13

Finally got to our first shows about a third of the way into the 2013 tour and what a one two punch we got.  Night one had several highlights including a touching #34 tribute to 5 years passing since they last played with Roi, Dont Fear the Reaper was also dedicated to Roi.  Other highlights included a Bayou opener to fire the whole place up, stellar performances of Lie in Our Graves, Bartender and Rapunzel as well as a nice Space Between.  The band has been on fire this tour and well worth the wait to see them.  Night two is considered the show of the summer tour so far, the blowout show of the year.  The rare hits like: Dreamgirl, Drive In Drive Out, Joyride, JTR, Help Myself, Hunger for the Great Light, Belly Full, Typical Situation and Halloween.  All energy, all jam, all not played often at all.  Throw in a sick Crush, slamming #41, best Mercy I have heard, one of my favorite new songs Drunken Soldier, southern auction style Ants, Pig in the encore and an epic Two Step that had several layers of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" and the band crushed the City of Brotherly Love playing the shit of Dirty Jerzy!  It was another great weekend with this band, with family, in great cities (Philly, BMore) too bad the Yanks couldnt win! Great way to start the Summer!  Enjoy the setlists and videos below.
