Dave Matthews Band to Headline Two Nights at Jones Beach

Long Island shows to kick off Tuesday at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater.

After a one-year hiatus from their famous summer shows, Dave Matthews Band (DMB) is back on tour and back in the studio gearing up for a September release date on their eighth studio album.

With elements of love, life, politics, race and war, DMB  has soared to the top, selling nearly 40 million albums since 1991 and frequenting the stage with some of jam band's largest names like guitar great Tim Reynolds, Trey Anastasio of Phish and Warren Haynes of the Allman Brothers Band and Gov't Mule.

DMB will take to the stage at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh Tuesday and Wednesday evening in the early stages of their tour with support from opening act Fitz and the Tantrums, a soulful indie group formed in Los Angeles in 2008.

In addition to individual tour dates, Dave Matthews kicked off the summer as a headliner for the famed three-day Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Ala. The festivities for the year aren't over yet, as the band is slated to headline the inaugural River's Edge Music Festival in St. Paul, Minn. alongside names like The Flaming Lips, Tool and Puscifer.

Tuesday's DMB show opens at 6 p.m. while Fitz and the Tantrums are set to hit the stage at 7 p.m. rain or shine. For further information or to order tickets, click on Live Nation's website

What's great here is that Dave Matthews played a sold out concert in the rain to adoring fans last night at Jones Beach. The band got paid heartily, the fans went home happy and he's off to the next stop on the tour. What was it you were bickering about again?

The next stop is the same stop, he is playing there again tonight. What is it you were not paying attention to again? Oh, everything? Good.
