Dave Matthews takes part in the Concert for Charlottesville benefit at Scott Stadium in Virginia Sept. 24 in the wake of the white nationalist rallies this summer.
The space between Dave Matthews Band and its fans is about to get a whole lot smaller, because the group is going on tour throughout North America this summer.
DMB is scheduled to be on its home continent for nearly five months, starting with an April 30 gig in Pensacola, Fla., and the plans continue until the See.Hear.Now Festival in Asbury Park, N.J., Sept. 22. Along the way there are arena dates and plenty of amphitheatre gigs, including plenty of doubleheaders. The guys will also march into New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival May 4.
The online ticket presale for DMB Warehouse Fan Association members began today at 10 a.m. EST, but the general public will have to wait about a month for a crack at tickets. Citi cardholders get a presale Feb. 19 and the general onsale begins Feb. 22.
Prior to its time in the U.S. and Canada, DMB will be touring Europe, kicking the run off March 6 in Munich. 
Dave Matthews Band returned to the road in 2018 and released a new album, Come Tomorrow, in June.
The group came in at No. 35 on 2018’s Year End Top 100 Worldwide Tours chart, with a reported gross of $47.7 million and 716,489 total tickets. Its average ticket price was $66.53 for the year and his average gross per show was $1.29 million.
Fans in Tennessee will be especially glad to see Dave Matthews, as he was one of the headliners who didn’t get to take the stage due to inclement weather at Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival last year.
The band faced controversy last year when its longtime violinist Boyd Tinsley was accused of sexual assault earlier this year, according to Variety, and is ‘no longer a member’ of the band. 
DMB and other artists played a free concert at Scott Stadium @ Univ. Of Virginia in Charlottesville after racial and political tensions boiled over at a “Unite The Right” rally in the city that left one counter-protester dead after being hit by a car and two state troopers dead from a helicopter crash.
