Dave Matthews Band's recent free concert in Central Park is coming to CD and DVD.
As first tipped here this summer, Dave Matthews Band's recent free concert in Central Park is coming to CD and DVD. "The Central Park Concert" will be released as a triple-disc CD and double-disc DVD Nov. 18 by RCA. Fans who pre-order either item through DMB's official Web site by Nov. 14 will receive an exclusive seven-track live disc drawn from the group's summer North American tour.
The 20-song show goes a bit heavier on old favorites than usual, such as "So Much To Say," "Dancing Nancies," "Warehouse," "Ants Marching," "What Would You Say" and "Jimi Thing." The latter cut, as well as a cover of Neil Young's "Cortez the Killer," feature Gov't Mule's Warren Haynes on guitar.
The "Central Park" DVD sports a documentary on the show and a photo gallery. The release is DMB's fifth live album, and first since last November's "Live at Folsom Field." Matthews has also released "Live at Luther College" with frequent sideman Tim Reynolds.
As previously reported, Matthews will spend December on tour in support of his recent RCA solo debut, "Some Devil." He will be backed by Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio, bassist Tony Hall, drummer Brady Blade and keyboardist Ray Paczkowski.
Matthews is also confirmed as the musical guest for the Nov. 8 episode of NBC's "Saturday Night Live."
