It’s been a while since I’ve seen a Dave Matthews Band concert. It started to seem weird to me when my little sister became a huge fan, not really that there’s anything wrong that. The one that really got stale for me was how little Band innovates. , they have pulled off some great accomplishments, most notably the two recent, humongous, free, public shows that he’s put on the in the last couple years.

Then they release a tour announcement today, and I swear the tour looks to me as if it’s the exact same tour they played last year. And the year before. And the year before that. I just started getting really bored. Let’s face it, Dave Matthews Band is somewhat predictable. You can always most certainly guess that they’ll be playing a summer tour at all of these all the time. That’s what their crowd has asked from them…


Here is the tour information and from the Dave Matthews Band Announcement:

Band has been working long hours on their forthcoming
studio album this . is very excited to get back on the
road this summer as they feel the songs on the new album lend themselves
to being played on stage. We have a lot of special things planned
for the summer so stay tuned to the web site
(http://davematthewsband.com) for updates.
