Dave Matthews Band on
Waterfront Concerts is proud to announce the third installment of the Machias Savings Bank Concert Series, “A Very Special Evening with Dave Matthews Band”, LIVE at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, ME, Friday, June 6, 2014. In 2013, Rolling Stone put Dave Matthews Band on its list of the “50 Greatest Live Acts Right Now,” observing, “Two decades in, DMB still know how to surprise their fans.” The group’s 2014 North American summer tour may be its most surprising yet.
“A Very Special Evening with Dave Matthews Band” will feature the group delivering two sets per evening, performing songs from throughout its career. Dave Matthews Band will wind through numerous configurations – from electric to acoustic, from full-throttle numbers featuring the entire band to more intimate moments featuring small groups of band members – including a stripped-down pairing of Matthews with guitarist Tim Reynolds, performing as an acoustic duo, as they occasionally do when the band is off the road. A variety of guests will join the band throughout the summer. "I was talking to Carter about how much I still like just sitting around playing music together. It's how we started – in the basements of Carter's and my mom's houses,” says vocalist/guitarist Dave Matthews. “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. It seems like the opposite of a safe plan, so why not?"
“Everyone was really psyched about the idea, so we’ve been busy figuring out how to turn it into the best possible experience for our fans,” says drummer Carter Beauford. The extensive North American outing will kick off on May 16 at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Woodlands, TX and include two-night stands in Saratoga Springs, NY, Camden, NJ, Noblesville, IN, Chicago, IL, Hartford, CT and West Palm Beach, FL. Dave Matthews Band will launch the West Coast leg with three consecutive nights at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA (August 22-24). The group will headline The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA on August 29-31 in its traditional Labor Day weekend stint. This year’s shows at The Gorge will also feature a Caravan stage with performances by additional artists.
