TOUR DATES: Dave Matthews Band 2012 Summer Tour

After taking most of 2011 off, Dave Matthews Band will hit the road this summer for a massive trek across North America. The band has chosen a bunch of interesting opening acts for their 40 summer dates, including The Avett Brothers, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Delta Spirit, Fitz and the Tantrums, Gary Clark Jr., The Head and the Heart, and Lettuce, among others.

Fanclub pre-sales for DMB Warehouse members start tomorrow (February 16) at 10AM ET, with public on-sales set for Friday, March 9 at 10AM ET.

The band has also confirmed they’ve teamed up with producer Steve Lillywhite to start in on a new studio album.

    Are we sure they are playing in Hershey? I looked on Ticketmaster and don’t see that date/venue :(

      I’d give it a day; dates just got announced and sometimes TM can be slow to update their listings.

      yep, public on-sales aren’t for another few weeks, so I’m not surprised TM doesn’t have all the dates yet. I’d sincerely doubt the band would announce a date that wasn’t solid yet.

    Wish they were stopping in my town! I’m soo excited to get the new album in September!
