DAVE MATTHEWS BAND KICKS OFF

U.S. ARENA TOUR TONIGHT IN BUFFALO, NY

Two-Disc Live In New York City Due Out November 9th

Dave Matthews Band will launch its fall 2010 U.S. arena tour tonight at HSBC Arena in Buffalo, NY. The outing will include the group’s first-ever concert at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY (November 3rd), a two-night stand at Boston’s TD Garden (November 9th and 10th) and two shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden (November 12th and 13th). The run will come to a close with a pair of hometown shows at Charlottesville’s John Paul Jones Arena on November 19th and 20th. For further details, see itinerary below or visit http://www.davematthewsband.com.

The group, which recently wrapped up a South American tour, is renowned for its live shows. Rolling Stone named Dave Matthews Band’s summer outing one of the season’s “coolest tours” while the Orange County Register observed: “Twenty years on, Dave Matthews Band continues to be one of the tightest, most intuitive and unique rock bands in America.” “Matthews and company presented a killer concert for more than 42,000 fans… tapping into his entire songbook from their first record, ‘Under The Table and Dreaming’ to last year’s Grammy-nominated Album of the Year, ‘Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King,’” said the New York Post.

Dave Matthews Band’s Live In New York City, a double CD capturing the group’s July 17th, 2010 performance at Citi Field, will be released on November 9th by RCA Records. Fans who pre-order Live In New York will receive The Big Apple Bonus Disc, which features four songs from the July 16th Citi Field show. The pre-order will run through November 5th, 3:00 p.m. ET at:

Dave Matthews Band – comprising Carter Beauford (drums), Stefan Lessard (bass), Dave Matthews (vocals, guitar) and Boyd Tinsley (violin)  – was the biggest ticket seller worldwide of the past decade and has sold over 17 million tickets since its inception. The group’s latest record, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King (RCA), debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 in June of 2009, making Dave Matthews Band one of only two groups in chart history to have five consecutive studio albums enter atop the chart.
