The rescheduled outing will now kick off on July 23 in Raleigh, N.C.
The Dave Matthews Band announced the dates for its rescheduled summer 2021 tour on Thursday (April 22), which is slated to kick off on July 23 in Raleigh, N.C., at the Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek. The revamped run will include a series of two-night stands in West Palm Beach, Chicago, Noblesville (Ind.), Gilford (N.H.), Irvine (Calif.) and Saratoga Springs (N.Y.). Tickets are available on Ticketmaster.com.
Among the bands joining DMB at their annual Gorge Amphitheatre three-day Labor Day (Sept. 3-5) run are Dumpstaphunk and Allen Stone, Robert Randolph and the Family Band and Mavis Staples. The announcement on Earth Day included information on DMB re-booting their original 2020 tour plan to plant one million trees, which will have them planting another million trees after fully funding their original pledge last year.
Working with DocuSign and Dreaming Tree Wines, the band is inviting fans to add an optional $2 to their ticket price to plant a tree through the Nature Conservancy as part of the organization's Plant a Billion Campaign. In another green effort, DMB said they will be neutralizing the carbon footprint of fan travel to shows by working with REVERB to support carbon reduction projects.
