Warmer days are upon us here in Las Vegas.  For some this means pool season. For me, I think concert season.  And there is definitely no shortage of opportunities to catch a great show over the next couple months.  We’ve got it all….from Valley to Vegas: Spring Concert Series featuring Hozier, St. Vincent and Ratatat (to name only a few) to Journey Las Vegas and The Essential Diana Ross: Some Memories Never Fade.

In honor of concert season kicking off, here are a few personal stats compiled from the 40 (yes, 40…and counting!) Dave Matthews Band shows I’ve been to:

  • Shows seen: 40
  • Total songs seen: 821
  • First show: August 1, 2001 in Hershey, PA
  • First song: “JTR”
  • Song I’ve seen most: “Grey Street” – 22 times
  • Song I’ve still never heard: “Last Stop”….one day….
  • Locations I’ve seen the band in: PA, D.C., NJ, VA, MD, WA, SC, NV, IL, CA
  • Best memory: ALL OF THEM!
