I've been going to SPAC since 01 since I'm from Saratoga but I've also seen 6 shows in Hartford. I'll say this: the tailgating and setlist isnt usually as good. One thing I really like about Harford though is that if you're on the lawn, you have more space. in 2010 at SPAC, I did one night inside and one lawn and it just seems like over the years theyve started selling more and more lawn tickets. I dont like being completely ass to face and trying to enjoy the show and when I was in high school (circa 04,05,06) I dont remember it being so insanely crowded. I've never not had a good time in Hartford though, but I doubt you'll see your best show there.
As for me this year, I'm flying home for SPAC and doing both nights inside. Cannot wait.
Yeah, usually everyone i know from home will head over to the state park even if they dont have tickets to tailgate. Most of my friends will get lawn seats. sometimes if me, my girlfriend, my brother, and his fiancee have inside, we'll go back out with like two more tix to grab two friends from the lawn if it isnt too crowded inside. But yeah, I'm generally used to splitting with some of my friends when the show starts.
Were you there in 06 when he opened night 1 with Pig? So amazing.
I'm going to see DMB for my first time when they come to Michigan.
I heard his sets are crazy long and sound incredible when live. Needless to say that I'm stoked.
holy crap this tour is still going every year?
I think my first time at the DMB summer tour was .....yup, 13 years ago.
