The Dave Matthews Band wrapped up its Spring 2002 tour in Vancouver, Canada on May 24; their new CD Busted stuff will be released July 16, 2002.

The Dave Matthews Band wrapped up their spring 2002 tour with a bang in Vancouver, Canada on May 24, 2002. Before the band even walked on stage, the crowd was pumped and the wave made its way around the arena over and over again.

Up until the second the lights went down there were empty seats throughout the arena, but when Dave Matthews and band strode onto stage with instruments in hand, there wasn't a free seat to be found. They hit the stage and the Dave Matthews Band didn't stop playing for two hours straight, with the crowd on its feet the entire time.

For someone who had never really listened to the Dave Matthews Band, other than the few songs they play on the radio, I was incredibly impressed. Each and every member of the band played like it was the last time they would ever hold an instrument. A bunch of songs went on for eight minutes or more, with lengthy instrumental tag-ons. You might think that they should just get on with the next song, but the instrumental parts were genuinely spellbinding.

I have never witnessed people playing instruments so fast. My personal favorite was Boyd Tinsley, Dave Matthews Band's violin player. You could barely tell he was playing, his arm was going so fast! It really had you dancing in your seat, wanting desperately to be up on stage with them.

The only downside for me was waiting throughout the whole two-hour set and half an hour encore and never hearing the two songs I had gone to hear, I Did It and The Space Between. That aside, I was really glad I reviewed the Dave Matthews Band. I know they've sold out shows well into September, but I'll definitely be first in line for tickets if they swing back here this fall.
