DAVE MATTHEWS SOLO ACOUSTIC SHOW
November 13, 2001
Some fans had travelled over 7,500 miles to be there...
...and at a little before 1:30 PM, Dave took the
stage, armed with an acoustic guitar and the mother of all hangovers
to a rapturous 700+ capacity crowd at the Virgin Megastore,
Oxford Street, London.
Once the barrage of flash photography subsided, Dave delivered five
songs hallmarked by his instantly recognisable husky vocal stylings and
ever shifting live arrangements before leaving the stage to return for a
much demanded encore.
During the set we were also treated to an anecdote from some talk radio
Dave had heard where a Cleveland US Senator had been obsessed with
the baggy pants of today's youth showing too much of their buttocks (or
was it anus?)... This obviously had him amused.
With the gig over the signing got underway and with lines stretching
all the way around the basement of the Megastore he was going to be
there for some time.
