Details Release Date: Nov 29, 2005; Lead Performance: Dave Matthews Band; Genre: Rock

There are few natural settings more stunning than Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre, few bands more committed to performing than the Dave Matthews Band, and few fan bases more good-naturedly crazy about their guy. The double-disc Weekend on the Rocks, recorded at the venue last September, leans heaviest on this year's Stand Up, but doesn't shy away from occasional DMB oldies (''Crash Into Me'') and genuine goodies (a cover of the Zombies' ''Time of the Season''). The concert DVD puts listeners right there (minus, perhaps, a certain herb-scented breeze).
