Dave Matthews Band to perform at Riverbend this summer
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- 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.
"I was talking to Carter about how much I still like just sitting around playing music together. It's how we started in the basements of Carter's and my mom's houses, says vocalist/guitarist Dave Matthews. Our shows are loose, but we started thinking that maybe this summer we should make them looser 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 weve been busy figuring out how to turn it into the best possible experience for our fans, says drummer Carter Beauford.
The extensive North American outing will kick off on May 16 at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Woodlands, TX and include a stop in Cincinnati at Riverbend Music Center on Wednesday, July 9.
An online presale for all shows will begin on Thursday, January 16, at 10:00 AM ET at www.warehouse.davematthewsband.com for members of the DMB Warehouse Fan Association.
Tickets for the Cincinnati show will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, February 7, at 10:00 AM. For further details visit www.riverbend.org.
