Dave Matthews Band North American Summer Tour Postponed

DURANT, Okla. (May 6, 2020) – Dave Matthews Band (DMB) is disappointed to announce, that in light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, we will be moving all of its 2020 summer dates to the summer of 2021.  The concert at the Grand Theater at Choctaw Casino & Resort – Durant, scheduled for September 18 and 19, 2020 has been rescheduled to October 8 and 9, 2021.

The Dave Matthews Band made this decision with the health, safety and well-being of its fans, touring crew and venue staff as its priority.

DMB has sold more than 25 million tickets since its inception and a collective 38 million CDs and DVDs combined. With the release of 2018’s Come Tomorrow, DMB became the first group in history to have seven consecutive studio albums debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The New York Times, in a Critic’s Pick review, observed, “willed optimism fills the songs on “Come Tomorrow,” while cynicism and irony are nowhere within earshot.”

DMB, who was named a United Nations Environment Goodwill Ambassador in 2019, will be neutralizing the biggest contributor to a concert’s carbon footprint – fan travel.  In addition to the band’s footprint, REVERB will be calculating the carbon footprint associated with fan travel to DMB shows in 2020 and the band will be neutralizing these emissions by supporting carbon reduction projects.  The band has a long history of reducing their environmental footprint and neutralizing tour carbon emissions from flights, busses and trucks, hotel stays and venue energy use going back to their first shows in 1991.

Previously purchased tickets will be honored for these rescheduled performances. Fans have  the option to refund tickets at the point of purchase.  The Dave Matthews Band is incredibly grateful for all of its fans who come out to see them every summer.
