Another much anticipated tour was announced this morning, The Dave Matthews Band Summer 2015 tour. 47 dates in 5 months, including 3 dates in Canada.
The tour kicks off May 13 in Austin, Texas and runs through the summer wrapping up on September 13 in Phoenix, Arizona. Canadian fans will get their chance to see DMB as 3 of the 47 dates will be north of the border. The first opportunity is July 21 in Toronto, followed by Montreal on the 22nd and then on September 1 the tour comes to Vancouver, BC.
There were hopes that the tour might come to the new Bonnaroo North festival or Ottawa Bluesfest in July, both of which appear unlikely due to the tight schedule the tour will follow.
The tour will follow the 2 set format, first introduced in 2014 the band performs 2 sets at each performance (an acoustic set of about 8 songs as well as an electric set of about 15 songs.)
Tickets for the tour are expected to go on sale to the general public on February 13, 2015. For more information visit www.davematthewsband.com.
