Dave Matthews Caravan
Chicago, IL – Lakeside

Amos Lee was the first big name act to kick off Dave Matthews Caravan here in Chicago. This is the first time any concert has been staged in the old steel mill yards, which is dubbed Lakeside. The crowd couldn’t ask for a more beautiful day and speaking of beautiful, Amos dedicated his last song in his set to the lovely ladies he’s seen at the festival. What song you may ask? It was Queen’s “Fat Bottom Girls.” It was a hit along with the rest of the set. He even performed a Frankie Valley song to set the beach-like atmosphere. Although Lake Michigan is just a block away and in view, they’ve blocked access for obvious reasons. The biggest one is Dave Matthews fans like to drink to obliteration and alcohol plus a large body of water don’t mix.
