Ahead of Dave Matthews Band's return to South America in December, we're excited to announce their October 14, 2010, show at Luna Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as the 27th volume in the Live Trax series. Luna Park, a covered stadium built in 1932 is one of South America's most famous indoor venues. It has hosted events as diverse as James Brown, Pavarotti, Frank Sinatra, the Pope and several world basketball championships over the years.
This was just the second time DMB had played in Argentina and their first headlining show there. But the crowd was one of the most energetic the band has ever encountered. Throughout the show, the crowd chanted between nearly every song, giving off the vibe of a football match. Dave even commented: "Y'all do one, we do one, y'all do one, we do one. I like this arrangement." He also remarked that "coming down here and playing for y'all is like getting on a crazy fast motorcycle or riding on a crazy horse." Rashawn and Jeff picked up on the "Olé, Olé, Olé" chants, too, interpolating the melody into Proudest Monkey. The band's setlist consists of a wide range of songs from nearly all of their albums. Highlights include the one-two punch of Big Eyed Fish » Bartender in the beginning of the set, #41 in the middle, and a scorching Two Step to wrap it up.
A full audio recording of this show has not been available until this release. more >
