Tickets for Dave Matthews Band's upcoming summer tour go on sale to the general public beginning today - and the band is keeping prices low, as usual. "Tickets for Dave Matthews Band's shows remain a great value," said Coran Capshaw, the group's manager and founder of Red Light Management. "Out of respect for its loyal fans, the band has always made every effort to keep tickets affordable."
Two-thirds of tickets for the shows will average $40 each while other ticket prices will range from $55 to a maximum of $75, depending on the venue. The band will launch this summer's tour on May 27, 2009 at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in Darien Center, NY. Then - on the eve of the release of 'Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King', the group's first studio album in four years - Dave Matthews Band will play two consecutive nights (May 29th & 30th) at Boston's historic Fenway Park.
Tickets for most shows will go on sale to the general public on March 12th, 13th and 14th; Fenway Park tickets go on sale March 21st. Please check with your local venue or ticket retailer for details.
On June 2nd, RCA Records will release 'Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King'. Produced by Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance), the record is the follow-up to 2005's 'Stand Up', the fourth consecutive Dave Matthews Band studio album to enter The Billboard 200 at No. 1. The group, which will tour Europe from late June through early July, has sold a collective 35 million units (CD and DVD combined) and - with over 15 million tickets sold - has been named the top-drawing American band in the world by Billboard.
Dave Matthews Band is Carter Beauford (drums), Stefan Lessard (bass), Dave Matthews (vocals, guitar) and Boyd Tinsley (violin). Joining the group on tour will be Tim Reynolds on guitar, Rashawn Ross on trumpet and Jeff Coffin on saxophone, who are also featured on the new album.
