I've seen my fair share of concerts. I've seen my fair share of concert DVDs and videos. I'm in a band who has put on its fair share of concerts (and, that's right, we've filmed our fair share of them). But THIS sucker is astonishing!
With this praise, you're probably wondering why I didn't just slap on the 5 star rating. I'll explain, and then I'll praise some more. They didn't do "Bartender". I saw/heard that song for the first time on the Folsom Field disc and it is the single most emotional experience I've ever had in front of a television (with the possible exeception of the first time I managed to unscramble the Playboy channel), and I hadn't bothered to look at the set list before sitting down to watch this show (it's DMB, all their songs are good), and was then a bit bummed when through all these...just...whoa!...great!...stupendous performances, they didn't do that one song that I wanted to see so much.
Oh well, despite this minor setback, the show kicks mighty buttock in both sound, picture, performance, editting, and yes I'm sure even the catering was legendary.
100,000+ people...all for educational charities...NY...DMB...
Volume up please...

It is with great honor that I am allowed to review the latest and greatest installment from Dave Matthews Band. Having been a fan for the better part of 5 years and having been to like number of concerts, I can say that this DVD is damn near as good as the concert I was at in Phoenix 2 months prior. Dave and the boys have a lot more energy and are a little more animated in this show - but why not? Look at the gigundus crowd they're playing to!!! The setlist is fantastic and the sound and editing are near perfect. I was totally blown away to see/hear 'Cortez, The Killer', 'Dancing Nancies', 'Where Are You Going' and 'Grey Street', and it threw me back, making me feel like I was at the concert all over again. I caught myself standing in my living room dancin' and bouncin' around in the middle of the night while watchin ths DVD. The only thing missing was a couple thousand more people and that certain 'smell' in the air that always comes with concerts. I don't know what FREDs trip was, but majority rules, and pretty much everyone agrees that this is by far the best DMB DVD ever. Folsum was a disappointment and Listener Supported was my favorite - til now. It comes a close second of course. So Just go buy it. If you're a DMB fan you'll buy it anyway. If you're just curious, this is one helluva place to start.

I'm a 40 year old guy who's not afraid of getting older, mostly because I've rocked just as hard as anyone else along the way.
I popped the DMB central park concert into my laptop on a plane last night and almost jumped out of my seat screaming, dancing and smashing things cause it was so f-ing good! I'm glad I used some self control because I'm sure I would have been arrested.
I lived in NYC for over a decade and saw just about every major concert on the great lawn. None of them compared to this concert. The sound, the musicianship, the lighting, the videography, the crowd, the interaction between band members; absolutely brilliant!
Every song was stretched into a jazzy/funky, vivid jam that bubbled up the whole gamut of emotions. For example, "All Along the Watchtower" started with Stephan's very mello, psychedelic rendition of the star spangled banner but turned into this powerhouse song where Dave is screaming "FIRE" like he's standing on a wall somwhere, in the heat of battle, commanding his men to fight. Made me think of the troops that fight or have fought for this country.
The whole band played very well, especially Carter. I've never seen an octopus play the drums before. Beautiful to watch.
If you like live music, you absolutely have to have this in your collection. You will definitely be taken on a ride ... and it's an awesome, passionate ride.

Let me preface this review by saying that I'm not a real big Dave Matthews fan. I'd heard some of the bands stuff and I'd seen them once from about a mile away at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Fest but I'd never gone out of my way to get more information.
On the advise of a friend I picked up this DVD and was impressed. The band rocked for the better part of three hours and while I was not real familiar with the set list looking at the copyright dates I presume I got music from throughout the career.
The highlights included a version of "Two Step" to end the first disc and and incredible "Cortez the Killer" and "Jimi Thing" that Warren Haynes sat in on.
All in all a great performance that made me want to go out and buy some of the other cd's.

This is without question the best DVD from DMB. This is the way forward - high definition video, DD5.1, 16:9 picture format and editing from someone who cares more about the viewer than their own arty agenda.
I love DMB, but not blindly. If I think something is crap then I will say so. This DVD is as near PERFECT as you can get. I know one could wish for certain extras such as subtitled lyrics or multi angles but this is only dressing.
I live in the UK, and as such DMB are not as well known as in the USA. When telling friends and spreading the DMB gospel I'm asked who they are. I always retort...... 'They produce music for GROWN-UPS.'
Just want to add that I thought 'Two Step' on 'Listener Supported' was tremendous, and it still is, but so is the arrangement of 'Two Step' on this Central Park DVD. It just goes to show how versatile DMB are.
Now Dave, no going back please. No more grainy video or 4:3 format.
