I was hoping they'd somehow lure Dave Matthews to play GABP -- sadly, not in the cards. Still excited for the summer.

Live Music + Warm Weather = More Gooder.

Dave matthews? Really? Not even his mom wants to see him in concert!

I'd love to see another big 'get' for the next GABP. You can't get another Paul, but maybe a Springsteen or something.

I like Dave Matthews but live, never again.

The extended solos were so bad, I gave up and headed to the car. The four minute version of his stuff is much better.

I don't think DMB is doing any ballparks this year, though they haven't announced a show for Chicago yet so maybe a Wrigley encore is in the works. As usual, Colorado also isn't on their initial tour date release. I would go if they played at Coors.

@Joseph: DMB will sell out Riverbend again.

They'll sell out Riverbend, and they'd come close to selling out GABP if they put the show on a Saturday night -- especially since they aren't playing Louisville or Columbus this year.

The big rumor that's been swirling around for a while is that they're going to play Red Rocks in Colorado, but that happens every year.

I was at Wrigley Field 2 years ago and had a blast. I'd definitely go back if they announce another show there.

The problem with Red Rocks is it's just too small to accommodate large tours. When I lived out on the Front Range, I was disappointed at the lack of summer tours that play Red Rocks (opting instead for Pepsi Center, Broomfield or elsewhere). And when big shows do go there, it's next to impossible to get tickets because people from around the country rush to buy tickets in order to see their favorite band at Red Rocks.

Criticizing someone else's taste in music is as ridiculous as criticizing someone's favorite flavor of ice cream or favorite beer. To each their own.

Yeah that's pretty much how I feel even if I still pass judgement internally. My wife passes judgement on my taste continually. But what the hell does she know? ;)

There are exceptions so egregious, however, that they must be pointed out.

Bon Jovi comes to mind. Okay, I might have a song or ten or theirs on my ipad.

But that's no excuse, really.

Wrigley isn't happening this year for DMB. I think Chicago will get their DMB show on the fall/winter tour post new album release.

I'll be staying in town to go to the Bunbury Festival. Pretty good lineup for a so far for a first year event, especially since I got steeply discounted three day passes. Throw in the fact that it is right downstairs form my apartment and we have a winner. I wish it wasn't the same weekend as Forecastle, though.
