Dave Matthews Band announces a fall 2010 U.S. arena tour and will play a two-night stand at the TD Garden (November 9th and 10th).
The group has received stellar reviews for its 20th consecutive summer outing, named one of the season's "coolest tours" by Rolling Stone.
The band has sold over 17 million tickets since its inception. Dave Matthews Band was the biggest ticket seller worldwide of the past decade, selling upwards of 11 million tickets to 547 shows from 2000-2009, according to Billboard Boxscore. In fact, it was the only group to exceed 10 million in attendance for the period.
Dave Matthews Band - comprising Carter Beauford (drums), Stefan Lessard (bass), Dave Matthews (vocals, guitar) and Boyd Tinsley (violin) - has sold a collective 37 million CDs and DVDs combined. The group's latest record, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King (RCA), was hailed as "their most electric album yet" (Rolling Stone) and "spiritual and spirited" (People, "Critic's Choice"). With Big Whiskey's debut at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 in June of 2009, Dave Matthews Band became one of only two groups in chart history to have five consecutive studio albums enter atop the chart. The Platinum-certified collection was nominated for a GRAMMY® for "Album of the Year." It pays tribute to founding member/saxophonist LeRoi Moore, who passed away in August of 2008, and features some of Moore's last studio recordings.
