Dave Matthews Band Announce Huge Summer Tour

January 26, 2010 12:00 AM ET

It's not summer unless the Dave Matthews Band are roving the country, and the Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King band promise to deliver again in 2010 with a massive four-month tour starting Memorial Day weekend in Hartford, Connecticut. The band will also stage a two-night stand at New York's Citi Field in mid-July, a three-night affair at George, Washington's the Gorge in early September and pretty much visit every corner of the continental U.S. DMB will be supported by a wide variety of artists throughout their trek, including the Zac Brown Band, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Govt. Mule, and Ben Harper & Relentless7.

Check out photos of Dave Matthews Band onstage with Willie Nelson at Fenway Park.

There is one curious hole in the itinerary: a week-long gap between a June 8th show in Mansfield, Massachusetts and the June 15th show in Cincinnati, Ohio. Are DMB going on a quick vacation mid-tour, or are they maybe performing at a certain Tennessee music festival that takes place June 10-13th? We'll find out soon. Until then, get the full Dave Matthews Band tour details below:

Song Stories

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
