Dave Matthews Band will once again embark on an extensive summer tour, kicking off June 17 in Maryland Heights, Mo., and wrapping Sept. 5 outside Seattle. As usual, members of the group's Warehouse fan organization will be able to purchase tickets before the general public. Warehouse members will also be offered a preferred viewing area on the lawn at many amphitheater shows.

DMB remains a touring juggernaut. The group's 2003 North American outing grossed $52.5 million, according to Billboard Boxscores, nearly identical to the $52.7 reported from its 2002 tour. The DVD from the group's fall 2003 concert in New York's Central Park is up for DVD of the year at the 2004 Jammy Awards, to be handed out March 16 in New York.

The group is said to be at work on its next RCA studio album, which will be the follow-up to 2002's "Busted Stuff." Matthews released his solo debut, "Some Devil," last fall. The weekend before the upcoming trek begins, the artist will appear with his solo band at the fourth Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, Tenn.
