The 7th of November will see The Dave Matthews Band from Charlottesville, Virgina jet over to London to play The O2 Arena as a part of the Prudential Bluesfest London, as they kick off the UK leg of their world tour in the winter. Forming in 1991, The Dave Matthews Band consists of 7 musicians, most recently recruiting Jeff Coffin of Bella Fleck and The Flecktones as the band’s saxophonist in 2008. In 1997 the original Dave Matthews line up won a Grammy Award for ‘Best Rock Vocal Performance’ on their track ‘So Much To Say’ and have since won a number of other accolades including 4 VH1 music awards since the beginning of the new millennium.
Since the passing of LeRoi Moore and the release of the platinum album ‘Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King’, which was also nominated for 2 Grammys, the band have continued to tour on an international scale, with 4 top 10 albums under their belt, ensuring sell out gigs at some of the biggest and most well known music venues all over the world. In more recent years The Dave Matthews Band have been performing their ‘A Special Evening With’ gigs, which involve the band playing two sets during the night, switching through a series of configurations from acoustic to electric and intimate to intense, each featuring different members of the band and keeping an exciting improv element to each one of their shows.
A selection of special releases last year, including a limited release of ‘Live Trax 4’ for World Record Store Day were followed by the news of their world tour that is already underway, currently travelling through Mexico and coming to Europe in October. This tour will involve three An Evening With The Dave Matthews Band’ gig in Manchester, Glasgow and London, which is where the British leg will commence on Saturday the 7th of November.
