Dave Matthews, July 11, 2012

After taking a year off from touring, the Dave Matthews Band came back to St. Louis last Wed night. It has been since December 2010 (read HERE) since Scott and I have seen DMB so we were beyond excited.

I know this is going to sound "spoiled" but I was pretty disappointed in our seats.  This year Dave incorporated a "pit area" into his show which means that the first 10 or 15 rows were gone and it was a standing room area.  Usually our seats are anywhere from the 12th-15th row but with the open seating, we were pushed back.  We only bought 2 seats this year, too, so instead of being closer to center stage, I think they used us as "fill-ins" and we were way over on the right hand side of the stage.  Once Dave came out and started playing it definitely didn't matter but they just weren't the seats that we are used to having.

(This pic was taken with my phone.  We really didn't look this horrible-ha!)
