“Dave Matthews Band delivered another terrific summertime gem at Blossom…It's physiologically impossible not to have a great time at these shows,” said the Cleveland Scene in a 2015 live review. “You have to hear Dave Matthews Band live…[they] hit the road with a sound as big and expansive as the outdoor venues they play,” observed the Lexington Herald-Leader. “The two sets were dazzling,” said Examiner.com in a five-star review while The Indianapolis Star noted, “It was an evening of impressive pacing and a large variety of sonic textures.”
“DMB can do no wrong,” observed the Mirror in coverage of the band’s 2015 headline performance at London’s O2 Arena, noting: “Matthews is full of grace from the start and gives off a kind of warmth that makes you feel like he's a good friend…With each song it felt like we were exploring each band members' passion for their instruments.”
The band’s first performance of 2016 will be on February 4 at San Francisco’s Pier 70. The sold-out Super Thursday Night event is the first of three concerts hosted by DIRECTV and Pepsi in the days leading up to Super Bowl 50.
Dave Matthews Band has sold more than 20 million tickets since its inception and a collective 38 million CDs and DVDs combined. It is the first group in history to have six consecutive studio albums debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
