That annual rite of passage for college kids and jam-band heads across the land, the Dave Matthews Band summer tour, will commence on May 17 up north at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.
The band's summer run also includes a date at Austin's brand-new Tower Amphitheatre on May 21. DMB will play the JazzFest in New Orleans on April 28 if you cannot wait until May.
The DMB was last in Houston and the Woodlands venue on May 18, 2012. DMB had been rehearsing most of the week in the Pavilion leading up to the show, giving Woodlands locals a daily treat. They will more than likely do the same touring tuning this time around too.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 22, at the usual outlets: livenation.com, 1-866-4HOUTIX (446-8849), and http://www.woodlandscenter.org/
If you cannot afford tickets, just watch this entire DMB show on YouTube.
