VENUE INFORMATION
Riverbend Music Center is an outdoor amphitheater, with a capacity of 20,500, located in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States, along the banks of the Ohio River. Riverbend was built for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, to allow them to play in an outdoor venue during the summer months. Famed architect Michael Graves designed the building. The venue is managed by the Symphony subsidiary, Music and Event Management Incorporated and booked in conjunction with Live Nation.

As of 2012, Riverbend's lawn section has been replaced by an artificial grass (http://www.themotzgroup.com/article/riverbend-music-center-goes-green), similar to the playing surfaces in many NFL and college stadiums. Past DMB Shows at Riverbend:

Parking at The Bend:

Riverbend on-site parking does not allow tailgating of any type. Venue security is strict on this policy, and will actively prevent you from having anything resembling a good time once you have parked your vehicle in their lots.

Additional parking is available for free next door to the venue at the River Downs Racetrack, where some tailgating is permitted. Additional parking is available in lots around Kellogg Avenue, which offer grasstop lots for grilling.

FRIENDLY NOTE: Every year, local law enforcement conducts undercover patrols for underage consumption and drug use in the areas around Riverbend during DMB, Phish and Jimmy Buffet concerts. Be careful.

Huff-

Did you go to the 6.26.00 show?

yeah. I hit both 6/26/00 & 6/27/00. I've actually hit most of the Riverbend shows. The only ones I've missed were either due to a birth of a kid or the bar exam (02, 05 & 09)

Huff
04-29-2012, 09:15 PM
the only ones since 98 that is. 6/2/98 was my first show.

This may be one that I end up adding. As of now, I'm only hitting DTE.

Riverbend's not the nicest of venues, but I have fun every year. The band has pulled off some nice sets there over the years.

Oh yea, I love it. I usually go... I was at Operation Halloween (thanks by the way!)

This year I just haven't really pre-scheduled all my shows as I tend to do. There have been some great ones at the bend. :upyours

My first show as well. I would like to say i haven't missed since then but i have missed 8/8/02, 6/24/03, 8/5/04, and i will be there this year.

8/5/04 was my first show at Riverbend. Just an amazing night all-around.

I keep hoping for IBYU. Only because i have missed it and it is one of the few songs i have not seen

8/5/04 was my first show at Riverbend. Just an amazing night all-around.

out of 50 shows, I still rank 8/5/04 as my #1. I've never heard the band as tight as they were that night. Every song was completely nailed.

Even with the 'meh' encore, I hold that show on a pedestal.

I just saw you're from Dayton. That 10/2/04 show is pretty high out of my list of shows as well.

Three weeks from tonight! I'm looking forward to my first show since Wrigley - by far the longest gap between shows for me. They could come out and play Sister 16 times and I'd probably be content.

Just kidding. Sister sucks!

I just noticed your sig quote of Faulkner. We're completely mindfucking everyone now between our names and sigs.

Nope. :)

Two different people, and both friends :lol

And both are actually known amongst all of our common friends as Huff and Huffy. It's all very confusing.

I think I'm done watching setlists until the show. I usually say that but break down and look anyway. It's been since 2010 for me so going in somewhat unknowing would be fun.

Plus I finally won the opener lottery. After seeing a lot of bands I like slotted to open shows I couldn't get to, I am very excited to see the CCDs. I'm really interested to see a) how they sound/what they play in a setting that large and b) how they are received.

It should be cooler too, mid-80's they are saying right now. I'll take that over 95 any day.

Huff
05-23-2012, 11:21 AM
Yeah, when I saw the temperatures for this weekend, I started to sweat just thinking about how swampy Riverbend was going to be. Thank God the temps dropped as of that day in the forecasts :)

Huff
05-23-2012, 11:59 AM
And just as I typed that out, I've seen weather.com alternate from low-to-mid 90s to upper 80s for Tuesday's forecast TWICE so far today. Damn.

:lol

We could be getting snow showers on Monday, and I'd still bet on it being 90 and humid on Tuesday -- just because the universe knows DMB is playing Riverbend.

At least it's Cincinnati so there's a good chance the forecast will do a 180 from day to day. It also seems to depend heavily on which channel you get your news from.

Alright, I just moved into middle pavilion. My sister is getting my other tickets at the back.

I'll be so much closer when they bust into Jimi. Dave will totally here me not singing along.

Huff
05-24-2012, 09:48 AM
Matt, are you flying solo? Or do you have a pair? Another attorney friend of mine has an extra in Section 100, Row G or somewhere in a few rows of G and is looking for a seat partner. May be a chance for you to move up again. :lol

Caveat Emperor
05-24-2012, 01:32 PM
I've got a buddy who is coming to the show with me (the fiance isn't back in town yet, otherwise she'd be claiming the other ticket).

Appreciate the offer, though! These new tickets look pretty good -- front half of the 400s. Best seats I'll have had to Riverbend in a long time.

mr.mike
05-24-2012, 10:08 PM
Even though i will have the worst seats at Riverbend since '99 i am excited for this show. Hard to get 3 seats together that do not suck. Taking my cousin and her fiance for their first DMB show.

I'm selling a pair in Sec 100 Row K if you want them in ticket forum.

I don't want to jnix the weather forecast, so I'm not saying anything about it at this point.

Agreed. I've stayed away from the boards for the weekend as well. Though I know what they played the first few shows, I really feel like I'm going in somewhat blind.

I'm taking a half day and looking forward to a great night tomorrow. I hope everyone has fun and is safe and we can talk about another great show on Wednesday.

Cheers.
