Dave Matthews Band will return to Europe for a run of highly-anticipated shows this Autumn, marking the group’s first European dates since 2010.
The European leg kicks off in Lisbon on October 11th and will make its way through Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, France and the United Kingdom, with a final show in Dublin 3Arena on November 13th.
Dave Matthews Band will be performing two full sets each evening. The move to a two-set format last summer drew praise from fans and reviewers alike. Rolling Stone named Dave Matthews Band’s 2014 run as one of the hottest summer tours, observing how the change “resulted in plenty of surprises,” and The Atlanta Journal noted, “the stage is where DMB built its empire and where the band remains master of its domain…DMB deserves kudos for always bringing their A-game to the stage.” In response to the two-set show last year, The Charlotte Observer said, “Even when it’s Dave Matthews opening for Dave Matthews, there can’t be enough Dave Matthews in a night.”
