Summer just wasn’t the same without a Dave Matthews Band shed caravan in 2017 but fear not – DMB is back in 2018 with not only a North American tour but its first studio album since 2012’s Away From the World.

An online ticket presale for members of the DMB WarehouseFan Association is underway now, and all online ticket sales will be bundled with a choice of CD or digital download of the as-yet untitled album when it’s released.

DMB’s summer outing launches May 18 at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodland, Texas, and include a slew of two-night stands including BB&T Pavilion in Camden, N.J.; Huntington Bank Pavilion in Chicago; Coral Sky Amphitheatre at the S. Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach, Fla.; and Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre in Denver. If that’s not enough, Gorge Amphitheatre in Quincy, Wash., is booked for three shows spanning Labor Day Weekend Aug.31 – Sept. 2.

The whole shebang winds down at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles Sept. 10.

Citi card holders will have access to a presale Jan. 30 at 10 a.m. local time through Feb. 1 via the bank’s Private Pass program. 

Tickets go on sale to the general public Feb. 2 at 10 a.m. local time.

Best not to wait, either – DMB is a jamband favorite that tends to sell out those amphitheatres, averaging 15,643 tickets moved per show over the last three years (and they didn’t even tour in 2017).

Dave Matthews Band has sold more than 20 million tickets since its inception and a collective 38 million CDs and DVDs combined.
