Bad news from Ants Marching: The rumors are true. The Official Site announced that Dave Matthews Band is not touring in 2011. At all. No summer shows, no European shows, no South American shows. It is the first time in 20 years that the band will not be out on the road. The news item explicitly mentions that the band will be returning for the 2012 touring season, so fret not. 2010 will not be the final year for Dave Matthews Band.
We’ll be following up on this news in the coming days, including what this means for the band in the long term, as well as covering it heavily in our next Podcast, so stay tuned. And if you haven’t purchased those tickets for the 2010 tour yet, hurry.
