Other musicians take notice: if you have the money, take some time to figure out what your audience wants. Dave Matthews Band plans a release and does the work to make sure that (seemingly) every possible scenario is covered or considered–do people want the DVD’s, the whole weekend, just one night, SACD, etc. etc. With this comes the release of Weekend on the Rocks, a full-on box set (or not box set) release featuring their September run at Red Rocks to close out the summer.
Enjoy a preview of his upcoming release and read more for the full press release. Preorder the album here.
