After taking last summer off the Dave Matthews Band is hitting the road again.  The band announced their first North American tour in two years kicking off May 18th in Woodlands, TX and wrapping September 9 in Mountain View, CA.  There are two dates in the Capital Region.

Tickets  go on sale March 9. However, if you're a member of the DMB Warehouse Fan Association, you can get tickets beginning this Thursday, February 16 at

DMB is currently in the studio working on a new album with Steve Lillywhite, who produced the band's first three studio albums: Under the Table and Dreaming, Crash and Before These Crowded Streets. It'll be their first studio release since 2009's Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King. Look for that album later this year.
