Dave Matthews returns to Dallas in May, with two sets in one night
The show takes place almost exactly a year after his last Dallas gig.
Dave Matthews is coming back to Dallas. It's billed as a "very special evening," with two sets: The full band will play several decades of gauzy hits, and Matthews and guitarist Tim Reynolds will also perform a separate acoustic set.
“Our shows are loose, but we started thinking that maybe this summer we should make them looser and bring some of that feeling to the stage," Matthews said in a statement. "It seems like the opposite of a safe plan, so why not?"
The show is May 17 at Dallas' Gexa Energy Pavilion. Tickets go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. February 7. A pre-sale for Citi cardmembers began at 10 a.m. February 3.
At last year's show, also at Gexa, Dallas Morning News former critic Mario Tarradell praised the band for its passionate musicianship.
DMB has sold 37 million CDs and DVDs and 19 million concert tickets, according to a press release. It's been almost 20 years since they released Under the Table and Dreaming, but, said Tarradell, "This is music with heart and soul, richly played without pretensions. That never goes out of style."
