Dave Matthews Band
Following a 14-country spring tour of Europe and the U.K., Dave Matthews Band will bring its extensive U.S. summer headline run back to some of fans’ favorite venues, including Pine Knob Music Theatre on Wednesday June 26 at 7:30 p.m. Pine Knob Music Theatre is presented by Proud Partners United Wholesale Mortgage, Trinity Health and Ally.
The summer tour will begin on May 22 in Tampa, FL at MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre, and will also visit Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, WI (June 21 and 22), Broadview Stage at SPAC in Saratoga Springs, NY (July 5 and 6) and The Gorge in George, WA (August 30-September 1), where the band traditionally celebrates Labor Day weekend and has sold out each of its previous 70 shows. With the summer tour, Dave Matthews Band will be introducing new sustainability measures as part of its “On The Road To Zero Waste” initiative – a partnership with Live Nation.
Named as a UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador in 2019, Dave Matthews Band has a long history of reducing its environmental footprint. This summer, the band is partnering with Live Nation’s operated venues to minimize the concerts’ footprint even further – with the goal to divert at least 90% of fan-generated waste from landfills. Leveraging its existing leading sustainability resources, Live Nation will support the concerts’ goal by providing zero waste green teams, zero waste stations, food donations, waste sorting, composting and the use of minimal single-use plastic. Fans are encouraged to check venue websites for details closer to the tour dates. This year’s continued partnership with The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees campaign will bring the total to five million trees planted since DMB teamed up with TNC in 2020 to support reforestation. For additional details, visit www.dmbtrees.org. Dave Matthews Band will offset carbon emissions for band/fan travel with the assistance of REVERB, who will also produce the tour’s annual eco-village.
Dave Matthews Band has sold a collective 38 million CDs and DVDs combined and more than 25 million tickets since inception, making them the second largest ticket-seller in history. The band’s new album, Walk Around The Moon, is available HERE. Pitchfork praised the album’s “tight-knit, tender songs.” Associated Press noted, “‘Walk Around the Moon’ is a varied set, with the tracks veering from small and intimate to brassy and political, with a filthy groove propelling ‘Break Free,’ a nostalgia-tinged and brooding ‘Monsters’ and the band absolutely cooking with ‘The Only Thing.’”
