    It's the great thing about music-- it's all about emotion anyway. Once they get going, it could be a great show. However, I'm not sure any of the happier/more upbeat songs will work tonight at all. If they play, it will certainly be interesting. It could either be a disaster or it could be epic.

    They opened with Bartender -- I don't know how there'll be a dry eye in the place when Roi's pennywhistle part at the end gets played.

    Yeah, all the message boards are so slow right now. I'm just sitting on the WH live setlist update and I'm gonna pay attention for a few songs at least before I head to bed.

    No idea how the guys can play on tonight. I was hoping they would just ask Jeff to sit one out and just shine a single spotlight on LeRoi's spot all night.

    I think that'd be even harder for them to do...having to look over all night and see the empty spot on stage.

    Re: The Dave Matthews Band

    It's such a tough call on things like this. You have the obvious, tragic, human aspect of it all, but you also have the realistic and logistic aspect....people were already at the venue, hard to cancel a show that close to the start time. I am sure fans would have understood, but it's still a very tough call.

    Then, look at it from the band's perspective. When news like this first hits, it is a shock and it's hard to digest. Would they rather be flying home on a plane all night thinking about it or playing on stage together? I can see it both ways.

    But this is what they do. I am sure they are all going to take appropriate time off to attend services, grieve, etc... but tonight, who knows, maybe tonight is really the ultimate tribute?

    I just wonder about the next 3 weeks and what they will decide to do concerning the rest of the tour. Being completely selfish, I've been looking forward to next weekend at the Gorge since tour dates were announced back in March. It has been the single weekend that I've been pumped about for so long. I can understand if they don't play on but I'm hoping they will go on for the Gorge.

    There's nothing wrong with hoping they play. You are a DMB fan and you've been looking forward to seeing them for months. I'm a Redskins fan, and when Sean Taylor died last year, it seemed the times that the fans and the players felt the best was during the games when everyone (fans included) were "together." I would imagine at least a few dates will be shuffled in the coming week to accomodate services, but I bet they go on after that.

    The bigger question from the band perspective is what will the future hold? How will this affect the new stuff they've been working on? How will this affect future tours? Once this tour ends and the emotion of this event subsides a bit, that's when I could see the band possibly not returning.

    Re: The Dave Matthews Band

    From one of the other boards.....apparently Boyd, Tim, and Jeff are all wearing sunglasses and the whole band was crying on stage during Bartender.

    Talk about heart wrenching...could they have picked any song that would have been more emotional?

    "Oh, and if I die
    Before my time,
    Oh, sweet sister of mine,
    Please don't regret me if I die.

    Bartender, please,
    Fill my glass for me
    With the wine you gave Jesus
    That set him free after three days in the ground"

    You hate to even think about that, but I agree -- I wouldn't be surprised if this is the last we see of the band for quite some time.

    A couple picture of LeRoi I took...just going back through some pictures:

    Piedmont Park (we were front row in front of him and I got his setlist after the show):

    I would really like to see them play You Never Know tonight.

    Yeah, that'd be about perfect for tonight.
