Dave Matthews Band 2020 tour dates announced

The Dave Matthews Band 2020 tour kicks off June 16 and includes 39 dates before wrapping up Sept. 23.

The DMB tour dates do not include several venues that have become staples over the years, including the Alpine Valley Music Theatre in Wisconsin and the Xfinity Theatre (formerly the Meadows) in Connecticut. Instead, the tour will make some new summer stops, including two nights each at the Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino in Connecticut and the 3,000-seat Choctaw Grand Theatre in Oklahoma.

DMB will also hold its regular three-night stand at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington State over Labor Day Weekend, featuring opening acts Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Mavis Staples, Allen Stone and Dumpstaphunk.

There will be additional two-night stands in Noblesville, Ind., Chicago, Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Gilford, N.H., West Palm Beach, Fla. and Irvine, Calif.

Warehouse members may request Dave Matthews Band 2020 tour tickets until Feb. 3 at 3 p.m. Eastern. Citi cardholders can access a presale starting Feb. 18 at 10 a.m. local time. And tickets go on sale to the general public Feb. 21 at 10 a.m. local time.

Through its new partnership with the Nature Conservancy, DMB is giving everyone who buys a ticket the option to donate $2 to plant a tree. The band has committed to planting 1 million trees in conjunction with Dave Matthews’ Dreaming Tree Wines and the software company DocuSign — part of the Nature Conservancy’s bigger goal to plant 1 billion trees worldwide by 2025.
