Dave Matthews Band opens 2010 tour with fan favorites

in Apolitical by

From Ants Marching: Fans wondered aloud (on the message boards) if Dave Matthews Band would give them a little something special for the 2010 tour, given that 2011 is an off year. After one show, the answer is “yes.”

JTR, making it’s first live appearance since 2006. opened the 2010 summer tour. And that was just the beginning of the songs making a comeback. Hello Again (2005), Kit Kat Jam (2003) and Busted Stuff (full-band 2002) made welcome returns to the set list. Throw in new fan favorites Seven and Shake Me Like A Monkey, and classics like Ants Marching and Dancing Nancies (on which Dave shared lead vocals with the crowd), and you can see why fans are pondering if this is the greatest show to an opening summer tour ever. Oh, and did we mention the debut of a song never performed live (but sound checked many times) by the name of Break For It?
