Dave Matthews Band Sets Summer Tour

Dave Matthews Band will supports its new studio album on tour this summer in North America, beginning June 1 in Maryland Heights, Mo., and running through a Sept. 7 finale in Bonner Springs, Kan. Members of the band’s Warehouse fan organization will get first crack at tickets through March 14; most shows go on-sale April 2 to the general public.

Beyond multiple-night stands at such familiar venues as Camden, N.J.’s Tweeter Center and the Verizon Wireless Music Center just outside Indianapolis, DMB will play an Aug. 12-13 stand at the 41,000-capacity SBC Park in San Francisco and an Aug. 19-21 run at the Gorge Amphitheatre just outside Seattle.

The band’s as-yet-untitled RCA set is expected in May and will likely feature such tracks as “Hello Again,” “Joy Ride,” “Die Trying” and “Old Dirt Road.” Working with producer Mark Batson, DMB has built songs from ideas generated by each member, prior to Matthews adding his vocals.

Before the summer tour, DMB will play the first Australian shows of its career later this month, as well as appear at the annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in late April. A visit to the Bonnaroo festival is slotted in for mid-June.
