08.29.2000 SPAC, Saratoga Springs, NY The summer of 2000 found DMB continuing to evolve; each band member was really “coming into their own”, showcasing their individual talents and strengths on stage. Butch Taylor joined DMB during the summer of 2000 and has been performing with Dave Matthews Band ever since! Although the SPAC show occurred towards the end of the summer tour, DMB managed to pull out some real surprises on stage that August evening.
DMB gained traction immediately with show opener The Stone
and didn’t slow down until Grace is Gone
, a new song introduced that summer. Digging A Ditch
is also a song on the SPAC setlist which debuted during the 2000 summer tour. To the delight of every hardcore DMB fan in the house, noted rarity Minarets
was performed. Lie In Our Graves
was played and featured spectacular solos by Boyd and Butch. The band teased the first few notes of Too Much
after Anyone Seen the Bridge
but threw the crowd for a loop when they completely switched gears and launched into an incredible Ants Marching
was performed with lots of momentum with LeRoi pulling out all the stops. Lastly, Daniel Lanois’ spirited song The Maker
is also a highlight of the 2000 SPAC show.
