A variety of guests will join the band throughout the summer.

"I was talking to Carter about how much I still like just sitting around playing music together. It'show we started – in the basements of Carter's and my mom's houses,” says vocalist/guitarist DaveMatthews. “Our shows are loose, but we started thinking that maybe this summer we should make themlooser and bring some of that feeling to the stage. It seems like the opposite of a safe plan, so why not?"“Everyone was really psyched about the idea, so we’ve been busy figuring out how to turn it intothe best possible experience for our fans,” says drummer Carter Beauford.

The extensive North American outing will kick off on May 16 at Cynthia Woods MitchellPavilion in Woodlands, TX and include two-night stands in Saratoga Springs, NY, Camden, NJ,Noblesville, IN, Chicago, IL, Hartford, CT and West Palm Beach, FL.

Last summer’s Dave Matthews Band run topped Billboard’s Hot Tours chart in September2013. The Dallas News noted, “the band’s musicianship deserves undivided attention…For nearly threehours that organic blend of instruments, voices and songs swept through a crowd eager to spend all nightwith the Dave Matthews Band.”

“The only reliable Dave Matthews Band set list is a dart board with the group’s entire 22-year-olddiscography. And that, my friends, is a good thing – for the fans and the band,” said Cleveland’s PlainDealer. “Each night is a new night, a new beginning for us all…Like life, which really has no straightroads, a DMB show is a journey down twisting and turning byways. The difference is that there are nospeed bumps, no orange barrels, but there ARE plenty of fascinating side roads.”

Dave Matthews Band has sold a collective 37 million CDs and DVDs combined. The group hasteamed up again with Rob Cavallo, who produced 2009’s Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, to recorda new album that will be released later this year.
