Dmb. sucks…... And your a degenerate fuck bag! Ever heard of public safety? Try this on for size you cock…..30,000 people stranded on G.I. while hurricane hits and no where to go b/c there’s no access to a ferry. Use your brain and think of others, which u probably have never done before. Asshole!

haha August 26, 2011, 07:49:15

Spoken like a hardcore dmb fan! It would’ve been awsome if they played crash though!! Dmb sucks, you’re right! Calc you should show up anyway on saturday you dork

You degenerates are prolly listenin to whining rap or vomit inducing pantera. Learn about music b4 saying Dave sucks.
DMB for life!

DuMB August 26, 2011, 08:53:38

Maybe you should learn about music first Jamin. At least inducing vomit makes you feel better. Listening to DuMB makes most people feel like the shit dave couldn’t get out before he dumped his septic tank on those poor people. Honestly, you “fans” should re read your posts before posting them.

Haters are funny August 26, 2011, 10:08:38

I think it’s funny that people would be upset about this cancelled especially in light of the stage collapse that just killed 6 people with 60 mph winds. The weather here will be worse with greater winds. It was a smart decision to cancel. It’s not worth risking the lives of anyone for a concert. That says a lot coming from, because I spend most of my time at shows.

Chef Michael August 26, 2011, 10:17:44

Hell yes about closing down. It’s not worth risking the lives of people. That dumass is a dumb ass. He;s probaly 15. Go do another bat hit jerk! Go grab a live DMB CD and closet whack it and think your at the show!

James August 26, 2011, 11:18:36

So if Sat/Sun ticket holders can go friday- what does that mean for your ticket? Still eligible for refund/postponed dates?

Ed August 26, 2011, 11:24:54

Its a win for everyone. No chance of people dying in a hurricane at the concert, and more importantly, one less Dave Crapphews show being played.

the dude August 26, 2011, 11:37:53

Hey chef mike, even a 15 yr old can tell dave sucks. But im sure your a sophisticated 20yr old freshmen @ Rutgers U and you know it all right? Hopefully someone hits you w/ a bat…jerk

SpaceWrangler August 26, 2011, 12:27:51

I will say that DMB is pretty ggood if youlike shit music about BS. Who cares about this stupid caravan. I got SCI at the ryman tickets this morn! LOL

Emvibe August 26, 2011, 13:25:37

DMB needs to be canceled all together….

SpaceStrangler August 26, 2011, 16:51:05

SCI rocks but DMB may be just a bit tighter ;-)
How do you spell n-o-o-d-l-e?

Crazy August 26, 2011, 16:50:06

People are nuts. Friday night’s gonna be nuts. 60 mph winds and pouring rain. Can’t believe they’re gonna run the ferry. Save your voice for the Gorge Dave.

Its not dave’s fault you know how dangerous a metal stage is not only to the performer and band but all the workers behind the scences. If one power supply or speaker amp gets wet it would blow up the whole sound system and start a electrical fire that would spread in a matter of minutes. And the mass panic would kill hundreds if not thousands. So you know dave would play an acoustic set but only a few hundred would be able to here him. He is one artist that just love to perform and he has played in the rain before but there was no chance of lightening in the area, and it was a great show he was on for more then 2 hours, and what made it better all the fake dave heads left because of a little water. My wife doesnt like him and even she was impresses with that show but b*tch for the next 2 days while we were both sick. Keep playing live Dave i remeber you when you play in the smallest bars down south and now look at you. Keep up the hard work.

Haven’t seen DMB since 1995. Great musicians but a lot of their fans are getting younger & younger and they act like total fools at the show. Hate it when all these young fucks ruin it for all the old school fans. Please stay home!!!

Why is it than so many people feel the need to write such ill-mannered and ignorant posts. If you don’t like DMB then don’t listen to him. To make such comments as “Dave Matthews sucks” simply illustrates your total lack of musical taste and really makes you sound like a complete idiot. Listen to what you want, just don’t make immature and ludicrous statements about a band that has stood the test of time for over 20yrs. I look forward to every DMB show and to many other artists’ shows and if I don’t like the artist then I simply don’t listen to the music.
