Dave Matthews Band - the biggest ticket seller worldwide of the past decade - has launched the band's first tour since 2010, which will include visits at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY (June 8 & 9), and the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, FL (July 20 & 21). Along the way, the band will headline the inaugural River's Edge Music Festival, held on historic Harriet Island - just across the Mississippi River from St. Paul, MN - on June 24.
Continuing its Labor Day weekend tradition, Dave Matthews Band will perform on August 31, September 1 & 2 at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA, where the group has headlined 40 shows since 1997. The tour will come to a close with a trio of California shows: Chula Vista's Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre (September 7), Irvine's Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre (September 8), and Mountain View's Shoreline Amphitheatre (September 9).

Dave Matthews Band has been working on a new record with Steve Lillywhite, who produced the group's first three studio albums, Under The Table And Dreaming, Crash and Before These Crowded Streets. Plans are currently being made for its release later this year. The forthcoming album is the follow-up to 2009's Platinum-certified Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King (RCA). With its debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, Dave Matthews Band became one of only two groups in chart history to have five consecutive studio albums enter atop the chart. Dave Matthews Band - comprising Carter Beauford (drums), Stefan Lessard (bass), Dave Matthews (vocals, guitar), and Boyd Tinsley (violin) - has sold over 17 million tickets since its inception and a collective 37 million CDs and DVDs combined.
