Dave Matthews Band sets First Niagara show for June 28
What's summer without a Dave Matthews Band tour?
For this year's tour, Matthews will shake things up a bit with two sets per evening and a bunch of special guests. The band will play acoustic as well as songs with all the bells and whistles.
“I was talking to Carter (Beauford) 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,” Matthews said in a news release. “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?”
The tour will be at First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown on June 28. Pre-sale tickets for all shows will be released at 10 a.m. Jan. 16 for fan club members; and at 10 a.m. Feb. 3 for Citi ardmembers. General sales begin at 10 a.m. Feb. 7.
