| Waiting to Be Liberated...
||added on 8/31/2013
|In keeping with the tradition at the start of a tour, we have updated the "liberation list." This time, we have also updated and simplified the rules regulating which songs qualify for the list. Here are the updated ground rules:
1) A song joins the list when it goes 1000 days without being fully played live by the full band, and it is "liberated" when it is fully played live by the full band. Our definition of "full band" is fairly loose but generally includes a minimum of Dave, Carter, and one other member of the current touring band.
2) A song qualifies if it has been fully played live by the full band five or more times. The exception is that officially-released, Dave-penned studio songs qualify as long as they have been fully played live by the full band at least once (e.g., Baby Blue, Let You Down).
3) A song is disqualified if it has not been fully played live by the full band five or more times or if it is in the Defunct category (e.g., #36, Leave Me Praying).
Days Missing and Shows Missing are as of August 31, 2013. Shows Missing are approximate, especially for older songs.
No songs are in danger of joining the list before the end of the year.
There are 158 total qualifying songs, 121 of which are not currently on the list. Qualifying non-studio songs are #40, All Along the Watchtower, Angel from Montgomery, Blackjack, Blue Water, Break for It, Break Free, Burning Down the House, Can't Stop, Cortez the Killer, Crazy Easy, (Don't Fear) The Reaper, Down by the River, A Dream So Real, Exodus, For the Beauty of Wynona, Get in Line, Good Good Time, Good Times Bad Times, Granny, Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black), The Idea of You, JTR, Kill the King, Long Black Veil, Loving Wings, The Maker, Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard, Money, Money (That's What I Want), One Sweet World, People People, Recently, Road, Runnin' Down a Dream, Shotgun, Sister, Sledgehammer, The Song That Jane Likes, Spotlight, Still Water, Sugar Will, Sweet Up and Down, Take Me to Tomorrow, Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin), Time of the Season, True Reflections, and Water into Wine.
| Updates, Bugfixes & Enhancements
||added on 8/13/2013
|While the band has been slacking for the past two weeks, our staff has been hard at work. In addition to plowing through some of the song note submissions and some other content updates in the works such as new song histories, we've also been adding site enhancements. Here is a complete list of what you might—and what you might not—notice:
These updates were made to the myAlmanac stats page and the Member pages:
1. Added teases & fakes to myStats
2. Added partials to myStats (which includes aborted songs)
3. Added song debuts to myStats
4. Moved upcoming shows from its own box to the left hand column (under tours attended)
5. All myStats boxes are now sorted by song title as their secondary sort
6. Got rid of the little empty box that shows up when you don’t have any upcoming shows.
7. Added date to longest performances
Show Page Updates
1. Poster and ticket icons now link to the new Tour Memorabilia page so you can flip through them like you can the setlist scans.
2. Added “Show number 12 of 34 at this venue” to the overlay that shows up when clicking the name of the venue.
3. Added venue column similar to the tour column.
4. Added My column similar to the tour and venue column. Currently only shows up when you are logged in and viewing a show you attended.
5. Reworked the counting of the tour and last columns:
a. The tour column is a little smarter and faster now.
b. Standardized the way partials are counted in the tour and last columns
c. It no longer counts cancelled shows and shows with unknown setlists in the last column
1. Now has a link to the full show details (similar to the set scan page)
1. Fixed issue with tour leg separator not expanding across the entire table on tour pages (only happened when logged in)
2. Fixed issue where the poster icon wasn’t being displayed on tour pages.
| Without your space helmet, Dave? You're going to find that rather difficult.
||added on 8/2/2013
|2001 was a very interesting year for Dave Matthews Band.
In January, the band was just coming off of a fall tour of the United States, during which they had not debuted any songs from the then-forthcoming Everyday album, with the exception of the new Everyday outro to #41. The band played a random one-off gig at the Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro on January 20, just their fourth-ever show in Brazil. Unlike every other trip to South America (or anywhere else outside of North America/the Bahamas, for that matter), there were no other shows surrounding this concert, which consisted of just seven songs, once again, none of which were from the new album. The band also made history in January by becoming the first major-label band to release a song officially on the embattled Napster peer-to-peer filesharing network (I Did It).
In February and March, Dave launched an unprecedented solo tour of radio stations to promote Everyday, playing I Did It and The Space Between as well as a handful of other tracks from the new album. During the beginning of this tour, the full band also played a few New York-based TV programs: Saturday Night Live, David Letterman, and TRL. On the night of the album's release, Dave sat in with Phish's Trey Anastasio in Richmond for a few songs, including Everyday, foreshadowing the future Dave and Trey encores on the 2003-04 Dave & Friends tour. The band announced the first part of its lengthy Spring/Summer tour, which they soon followed by adding second nights to several shows that sold out quickly, including Charlottesville. In March, dates for the second part of the tour were leaked via "hacked" URLs on their website. A few weeks later, the band announced the second leg of the 2001 tour; however, there were quite a few dates that were missing when compared to the leaked dates: Alpine 8/31-9/1, Minneapolis 9/3, Kansas City 9/5, St. Louis 9/6, Deer Creek 9/8-10, Riverbend 9/12-13, Polaris 9/15-16, Blossom 9/18, and Star Lake 9/20-21. These dates were never officially announced. At the end of March, about a month after the release of Everyday, the band's 2000 sessions with Steve Lillywhite were infamously leaked online.
In April, with less than two weeks to go before the pair of kick-off homecoming shows in Charlottesville, the band announced that it was cancelling the second night in Charlottesville due to poor ticket sales. With expectations arguably unreasonably high for the 4/21 Charlottesville show (the band hadn't played in its hometown in 5 years, which was half of its lifespan at the time, and these shows coincided with what was then believed to be the band's 10th anniversary), DMB kicked off the tour with a set that comprised mostly radio singles and/or Everyday songs. The list of dates on the tour t-shirts sold in Charlottesville included the rumored Alpine and Minneapolis dates, giving fans hope that those shows would be announced soon; they never were, and they (along with the 8/22 Vancouver date) disappeared from t-shirts sold at later shows.
In early May, the band played the New Orleans Jazzfest, a show which included a guest spot from Lenny Kravitz on Watchtower followed by a shocking performance of Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard with Paul Simon taking Dave's place. The latter hadn't been played since 11.17.92, making it currently the sixth-longest return of a song in the band's history. By mid-May, DMB had recruited Butch Taylor to once again join them on the road to help with the new songs, many of which sounded hollow without keyboards to flesh them out. From 5/18/01 until 4/1/08, Butch would play at every single DMB show. The first 2001 shows with Butch were a two-night stand in San Francisco with Carlos Santana guesting on Friday and Trey Anastasio guesting on Saturday.
By June, the Vancouver date had disappeared from tour t-shirts and from the official website without any announcement. Over the course of the tour, fans became aware of the reason behind the apparent cancellation of this show and the Midwest dates: Dave's wife was pregnant and due in mid-September. The band/management believed they could squeeze in the Alpine and Minneapolis dates, but they hadn't announced them yet; then they found out that Mrs. Matthews was expecing twins, which pushed her due date up to early September, and the band decided to end the tour in Salt Lake City. It remains unclear why the Vancouver show was called off despite its being before the Gorge and Salt Lake City shows; however, it was either due to Dave not wanting to potentially be out of the country when his children were born or to booking negotiations with the venue. The latter seems more likely as Salt Lake City is much farther from Seattle than is Vancouver, and at the time, it was not as difficult to pass between the U.S. and Canada as it is in today's post-9/11 world.
By the time Dave's children were born, the band had announced a brief international tour, on which they would play Mexico, England, Germany, and Australia. Then tragedy struck the United States on September 11, and international travel became increasingly difficult and possibly risky. The band pulled out of their international tour, but Dave decided to still play a few solo gigs in London. It would be 2005 before the band would finally play Australia and 2007 before they made it back to Europe (Dave played a few more solo shows in the UK in 2006). They have still never played in Mexico.
