In 2013, Rolling Stone put Dave Matthews Band on its list of the “50 Greatest Live Acts Right Now,” observing, “Two decades in, DMB still know how to surprise their fans.” The group’s 2014 North American summer tour may be its most surprising yet.
“A Very Special Evening with Dave Matthews Band” will feature the group delivering two sets per evening, performing songs from throughout its career. Dave Matthews Band will wind through numerous configurations – from electric to acoustic, from full-throttle numbers featuring the entire band to more intimate moments featuring small groups of band members – including a stripped-down pairing of Matthews with guitarist Tim Reynolds, performing as an acoustic duo, as they occasionally do when the band is off the road. A variety of guests will join the band throughout the summer.
Last summer’s Dave Matthews Band run topped Billboard’s Hot Tours chart in September 2013. The Dallas News noted, “the band’s musicianship deserves undivided attention…For nearly three hours that organic blend of instruments, voices and songs swept through a crowd eager to spend all night with the Dave Matthews Band.”
