Dave Matthews Band 2014 Summer Tour Announced

Dave Matthews Band has announced a rather extensive summer tour for 2014, with 42 dates across the nation. Only, these shows aren't your typical Dave shows.

Billed as “A Very Special Evening with Dave Matthews Band,” each show will include a full set from Dave Matthews Band, followed by an acoustic performance with guitarists Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds. It's an idea geared towards intimacy, which Matthews explained in the following statement:

“I was talking to [drummer Carter Beauford] 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. 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?”

Dave Matthews Band has also mentioned that several special guests will be joining them on tour, including a three-day Dave Matthews Band Caravan at The Gorge in George, Washington. The Caravan stage will feature exclusive performances from guest artists, giving the whole scene a festival-y vibe. Tickets go on sale on February 7th.
