Dave Matthews Band ’09
DMB is dropping a yet-to-be-titled record June 2 but is starting its massive outing April 14 at Madison Square Garden with Jimmy Fallon’s new house band, The Roots, on board. It’s a heck of a tour, with dates running through friggin’ October.
Apart from going to every place, Dave Matthews Band is counting on high-quality support acts. Considering the location, the band will be joined by Eli “Paperboy” Reed & The True Loves, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Avett Brothers, Jason Mraz, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Femi Kuti & The Positive Force, The Hold Steady, Hill Country Revue, Donavon Frankenreiter, Yonder Mountain String Band, G. Love & Special Sauce and Switchfoot.
Did we forget anyone? Just singer/songwriter legend Robert Earl Keen, who will open a couple of shows.
An online ticket request period begins tomorrow, Thursday, and continues through Monday at warehouse.davemathhewsband.com.
