Dave Matthews Band Taking 2011 Off From Touring

After two decades of nearly non-stop touring, Dave Matthews Band has decided to step down as king of the road — if only for a year. Known for its lengthy summer outings, which have become an annual tradition for many diehard fans, DMB will not tour in 2011.

"We feel lucky that our tours are a part of so many people’s lives, and wanted to give everyone as much notice as possible," the band said in a joint statement on its official Web site. "We’re excited to make this summer one of our best tours yet, and look forward to returning to the road in 2012."

The announcement comes just two weeks before DMB is expected to begin its 2010 calendar. The 51-date tour opens with a May 28-29 stand at Comcast Theatre in Hartford, CT, and extends through a September 15 gig at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN.
