Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds will kick off 2014 with a pair of shows in New Orleans. The longtime friends and collaborators, who performed together at Farm Aid 2013 this past weekend, will play the historic Saenger Theatre on January 15 and 16. The New Orleans movie palace, built in 1927 in the Italian Renaissance style, was once the flagship of the Saenger Theatre chain. Destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, it will reopen this fall as a performing arts center after an extensive restoration.
