The Dave Matthews Band will embark on a 42-date North American tour this summer, beginning May 16 at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Woodlands, TX. Titled “A Very Special Evening with Dave Matthews Band,” each night will feature two sets from DMB, ranging from full-band performances to more scaled-down approaches. For this year’s tour, Dave will shake things up a bit with two sets per evening and a bunch of special guests. With the high-profile pull that Dave’s got, you can expect some doozies. The band will play acoustic as well as songs with all the bells and whistles.
The band is expected to release a new studio album later this year, helmed by producer Rob Cavallo, who worked 2009’s “Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King.” When their last studio set, 2012’s Away From The World, debuted atop the Billboard 200, the Dave Matthews Band became the first group to have six consecutive albums start at No. 1.
