This just in: the Dave Matthews Band announced a massive summer tour — including a Fourth of July concert in Charleston at the Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park with support from Old Crow Medicine Show.
Matthews (vocals, guitar), LeRoi Moore (saxophone), Carter “Hit ’em Like Billy Cobham” Beauford (drums), Stefan Lessard (bass), and Boyd Tinsley (violin) kick off their summer tour in late May behind a yet-to-be-titled forthcoming album. They’re currently wrapping a studio session with producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Alanis Morissette). Longtime colleague Tim Reynolds
added guitar tracks to the album as well. The disc will be their first release since 2005’s Stand Up
.Tickets for the July 4 concert at The Joe go on sale for $65 (plus applicable fees) on Sat. March 29 at 10 a.m. (contact the box office at 843-577-3647).Tickets may be requested this month through the website of the Warehouse
