Dave Matthews Band 2021
The Dave Matthews Band is doing what it does almost every summer: going on the road. The “Crush” band has announced its 2020 tour with of course a stop at it’s beloved Jones Beach on Tue, Sept 21, 2021.
It begins June 16th in Uncasville, CT and ends September 23rd in Southaven, MS. In detailing the tour, DMB also announced plans to help plant one million trees in partnership with The Dreaming Tree Wines and DocuSign. The band is encouraging fans who buy tickets to chip in an optional $2 donation to plant a tree. The Dave Matthews Band maintains the large scale following it started cultivating on college campuses in the 1990s. They won the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 2020 fan vote in their first year of eligibility. But unfortunately the rest of the voters didn’t follow suit and passed over them for now.
“It’s a real honor,” Matthews said before the vote. “Even if they stick us in a holding pen for a few years, that’s OK. Just to get on that list. I can’t believe I’m on a list with Whitney Houston, Motorhead and T. Rex. That’s pretty awesome.”
With its greening initiative Dave Matthews Band, who were named a UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador in 2019, will attempt to neutralize the biggest contributor to a concert’s carbon footprint – fan travel. In addition to the band’s footprint, REVERB will be calculating the carbon footprint associated with fan travel to DMB shows in 2020 and the band will be neutralizing these emissions by supporting carbon reduction projects. The band has a long history of reducing their environmental footprint and neutralizing tour carbon emissions from flights, busses and trucks, hotel stays and venue energy use going back to their first shows in 1991. According to the group, the Dave Matthews Band has sold more than 25 million tickets since its inception With its 2018 album Come Tomorrow, Dave Matthews Band became the first group in history to have seven consecutive studio albums debut at No. 1.
