The Dave Matthews Band has a history of mapping out rather extensive Summer tours featuring a rather exhaustive amount of opening acts. So, it come as little surprise that Mr. Matthews & Co. recently unveiled 2010 Summer itinerary includes five months worth of tour dates and 12 different openers.
The band’s travels, which come in support of the recently released Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, will begin on May 28th in Hartford, CT. Highlights that follow include a two-night stint at New York’s Citi Field and three nights at Gorge Amptheatre, a venue which the band has grown quite fond of over the years.
But perhaps the biggest highlight will come in the form of a headlining appearance at this year’s Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, TN. The band is expected to close out the festival on Sunday, according to multiple sources.
Among the DMB’s set to tour throughout the extensive endeavor include Ben Harper and Relentless7, Gov’t Mule, Raphael Saadiq, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Brett Dennen, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, and Zac Brown Band. Find the band’s entire schedule (w/ openers) below.
An online ticket request period begins this Thursday, January 28th, and continues through Monday, February 8th, at the Warehouse. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on February 26th via Ticketmaster.com.
