In 2013, Rolling Stone put Dave Matthews Band on its list of the “50 Greatest Live Acts Right Now,” observing, “Two decades in, DMB still know how to surprise their fans.” The group’s 2014 North American summer tour may be its most surprising yet.
“A Very Special Evening with Dave Matthews Band” will feature the group delivering two sets per evening, performing songs from throughout its career. Dave Matthews Band will wind through numerous configurations – from electric to acoustic, from full-throttle numbers featuring the entire band to more intimate moments featuring small groups of band members – including a stripped-down pairing of Matthews with guitarist Tim Reynolds, performing as an acoustic duo.
Dave Matthews Band will visit the Southland on Saturday September 6 for a Verizon Wireless Amphitheater performance. This will be the group’s only L.A. – area show on this tour. Tickets go on sale Friday February 7 at 10 AM. They will be available online at www.ticketmaster.com and www.livenation.com.
Last summer’s Dave Matthews Band run topped Billboard’s Hot Tours chart in September 2013. The Orange County Register deemed the group’s most recent L.A. – area appearance, last September’s sold-out Verizon Wireless Amphitheater concert, “epic,” adding that Dave Matthews Band “gives Bruce Springsteen a run for his money in the show-length department.”
Dave Matthews Band has sold a collective 37 million CDs and DVDs combined. The group has teamed up again with Rob Cavallo, who produced 2009’s Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, to record a new album that will be released later this year. With Away From The World entering the Billboard 200 at No. 1 in 2012, Dave Matthews Band became the first group in chart history to have six consecutive studio albums debut atop the chart. The band ranked as the biggest ticket seller worldwide of the past decade and has sold over 19 million tickets since its inception.
