There haven’t been many bands over the last few years that have consistently hit the road as hard and as often as the Dave Matthews Band. The perennial road warriors will be at it again this summer with another massive North American tour. This 63-date beast of a tour kicks off on April 14 at New York City’s Madison Square Garden and runs until October 2 where the band will wrap things up at the BOK Center in Tulsa, OK.
Joining DMB will be a diverse and impressive group of opening acts that includes The Roots, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Avett Brothers, Femi Kuti & the Positive Force, The Hold Steady, Hill Country Review, Donovan Frankenreiter and Robert Randolph and the Family Band.
