We feel lucky that our tours are a part of so many people’s lives, and wanted to give everyone as much notice as possible. We’re excited to make this summer one of our best tours yet, and look forward to returning to the road in 2012.”

For the first time in their twenty years of touring, Dave Matthews Band has announced that they will take a year off from touring in 2011. The band is known for their annual summer-long tours across the US and Europe, featuring lengthy improvisational renditions of their songs. 1991 was the last year that the band was not on tour. Needless to say, there has never been a better time to see Dave Matthews Band than before their year-long hiatus.
Dave Matthews Band has been on tour promoting their latest platinum album, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King (2009). With only thirty dates left of their 2010 summer tour and four of the shows already sold out, the band decided to close their summer tour with a grand finale: two concerts at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Dave Matthews Band will perform back-to-back concerts on Friday September 17 and Saturday the 18 at the historical ballpark that the Chicago Cubs have called home for 95 years. Jason Mraz will perform in support of both Chicago shows.
About this summer’s tour, Matthews has said, “”I’m really excited about playing this year and not having a real plan other than trying to make the most of it and hopefully bring the best we can to the stage.” As for the decision to take 2011 off the road, Matthews said he’s pondered the idea throughout the past 20 years, but it never seemed like the right time. “Right now,” he said, “I think the band, in our relationships with each other and with the music, we’re in the best place I can remember us being. For that reason I thought I’d take a year off to sort of recharge my creative juices.” (more)
