A Very Special Evening with Dave Matthews BandJun 25 , 2014 DTE Energy Music Theatre
The Dave Matthews Band returns to DTE Energy Music Theatre for its 2014 North American summer tour, June 25 at 7 p.m.
Tickets at $75 in the pavilion and $40.50 on the lawn go on sale at 10 a.m., Feb. 7 at Palacenet.com, Livenation.com, The Palace Ticket Store and all Ticketmaster locations. Tickets may be also charged by phone to American Express, Discover, Visa and MasterCard by calling 800.745.3000.
“A Very Special Evening with Dave Matthews Band” will feature the group delivering two sets each night, performing songs spanning the band’s career. The group will wind through numerous configurations – from electric to acoustic, from full-throttle numbers featuring the entire band to more intimate moments featuring small groups of band members – including a stripped-down pairing of Matthews with guitarist Tim Reynolds, performing as an acoustic duo, as they occasionally do when the band is off the road. A variety of guests will join the band throughout the summer.
“I was talking to Carter about how much I still like just sitting around playing music together. It’s how we started – in the basements of Carter’s and my mom’s houses,” said Matthews. “Our shows are loose, but we started thinking that maybe this summer we should make them looser and bring some of that feeling to the stage. It seems like the opposite of a safe plan, so why not?”
“Everyone was really psyched about the idea, so we’ve been busy figuring out how to turn it into the best possible experience for our fans,” said Carter Beauford, DMB drummer.
After selling 37 million CDs and DVDs combined, the group teamed up again with Rob Cavallo, who produced 2009’s Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, to record a new album slated to be released later this year. With Away From The World entering the Billboard 200 at No. 1 in 2012, the Dave Matthews Band became the first group in chart history to have six consecutive studio albums debut atop the chart. The band ranked as the biggest ticket seller worldwide of the past decade with more than 19 million sold since they formed.
