2004-06-20 – Dave Matthews Band – Verizon Wireless Music Center – Indianapolis – Noblesville

It had been about a year since I last saw the band and seeing them again was an extremely enjoyable experience. This was the freshest I’ve seen the band in about 3 years.

I didn’t expect Warehouse as an opener; the violin playing at the end was new and energetic and set off a great beginning. Granny and Gray Street, two of my favorite songs, followed. Next came a song I’d never heard before. There were a total of 5 new songs that I’d never heard. Other than Gravedigger, I hadn’t heard much new in quite some time. Grace is Gone was stated with a slide guitar solo by Stefan Lessard and had a great, country music hoe-down ending lead by Boyd Tinsley.

It had been a while since I’d heard Help Myself and nice to hear it pop into the show. It was followed by Hello Again, which may be my favorite of the new songs but I’ll have to hear them again before I decide.

The finale of Rapunzel had a very frantic ending that was punctuated by my hasty exit from the stadium. My wife had to be up at 5:00 the next morning and were were in the 13th row. As soon as I figured the song was getting close to being over, she and left our row and sprinted to the exit at the top center of the venue. The wild keyboard helped my running and the two of us reached the exit just as the show ended. We were on the interstate 5 minutes later due to great parking and home 20 minutes later. A perfect ending to the best Dave Matthews Band show I’ve attended since June 2000!
