The two-disc, 16-song RCA set chronicles the group's performance at the city's United Center during the tour in support of the 1998 studio album "Before These Crowded Streets."
Counting the group's half-live, half-studio debut album "Remember Two Things" and the Matthews/Tim Reynolds double-disc "Live at Luther College," this is the fifth Matthews live release. It's also the first since 1999's "Listener Supported," which debuted at No. 15 on The Billboard 200.
Alongside staples such as "Jimi Thing" and "Crash," the forthcoming album will feature a handful of rarities, including longtime unreleased live favorite "The Last Stop," and covers of Daniel Lanois' "The Maker" and Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower." Saxophonist Maceo Parker joins the group for "What Would You Say," while Bela Fleck and the Flecktones bassist Victor Wooten guests on "#41." Reynolds is an on-stage guest throughout the show.
DMB's latest studio album, "Everyday," debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 in March and has been certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for U.S. shipments of more than 2 million copies. As previously reported, a collection of the group's video clips was released yesterday (Aug. 21).
