Dave Matthews will anchor a concert in the Bahamas in February which will highlight the Dave Matthews & Friends Caribbean Cruise Getaway. Fans will overtake the Royal Caribbean cruise ships the Majesty of the Seas and the Sovereign of the Seas from Feb. 3-6, and be treated to music from Bob Weir and Ratdog, G. Love and Special Sauce, Toots and the Maytals and the North Mississippi Allstars, among others.

The ships will set sail from Miami and Port Canaveral and will converge to sail together through the Atlantic. Backed by as-yet-unannounced artists, Matthews will perform Feb. 4 on a private island in the Bahamas. The ship will anchor in Nassau that day and proceed the following day to the private island resort CocoCay.

Among the other acts set to appear during the cruise are Ozomatli, the Mike Doughty Band, Mofro, John Brown's Body and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.

Members of Dave Matthews Band's Warehouse fan organization will get first crack at tickets Monday (Oct. 24). For pricing information, visit the cruise's official Web site.

As previously reported, Dave Matthews Band will close out this year with a brief tour that begins Nov. 26 in Minneapolis.
