I'm assuming this is some sort of solo thing where he's not playing with the full Dave Matthews band? And even that's still big enough to play amphitheatres?

This could be called "Dave Matthews reads your cities phone book tour" and this thing still sells out amphitheaters. I don't get the appeal.

It might be the band, I'm not totally sure.

I read the headline and tried not to fall asleep while reading it.

“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?"

As if one set was bad enough....2 AND a stripped down acoustic version? I hope ticket purchase includes cots, pillows and blankets.

But then you were still awake enough to make a thread about it.

To Dave Matthews fans, this is a great announcement. I've always wanted to see a Dave & Tim set, but I never heard news of there being one around me. It sounds like they'll be doing it on this tour, along with their usual DMB set and maybe some other stuff as well such as guest appearances. That's a lot of value for your entertainment dollar. I might try to get tickets for this. It's been many years since my wife and I have seen Dave and company.

As far as the naysayers, I'll just say this: they are a classic jam band, and a fairly good one at that. Dave is charismatic and fun. If you don't like him in the first place, it's beyond me why you would spend your time making a thread about it only to poke fun or show up to the thread, read the comments and then join in on the bandwagon crap like talking about pillows and blankets. I can assure you, the crowd will be very active and loud and will not be falling asleep. These shows are great fun. I only wish I had so much spare time that I could afford to waste it on pointless negativity.

There's more to life than just metal - and that's coming from a guy who has seen more metal shows and owns more metal albums than most of you.

Jam bands are awesomeness.

That is all.

I'm not crazy about Dave Matthews but in this depraved music culture we live in I'll gladly take him over most of the other horseshit today.

My personal problem with DMB stems from the fact that when I was in highschool / college DMB was the soundtrack for preppy douches and frat boy date rapists. I have no problem with jam bands, but once you've seen Umphrey's McGee, String Cheese Incident, Lotus, STS9 and/or other talented jam bands you see that DMB has the most boring, go-nowhere jams next to Phish, IMO.

Right? That one episode of the Sarah Silverman Program about jambands summed up Phish completely. You have to be high on drugs to think Phish sounds good.

Now this is a fair point, and since I've not heard much from the bands mentioned, I won't argue it. Obviously, all of the previous points were just knee-jerk, bandwagon haterism, though.

EDIT: Except STS9 - they are THE ABSOLUTE SHIT, SON (meaning that they're good :D)
