The 2010 Dave Matthews Band tour got underway November 2 in Buffalo, NY. Fans got treated to a post-Halloween Halloween to close the show (it actually replaced The Last Stop according to set list scans). The tour has been anticipated by not only the hard-core fans, but the causal as well, even garnering a writeup in New York Newsday that mentioned Antsmarching.org (you have to be a subscriber to read that, but trust us, it's there).
Speaking of our little site, we are having fans tweet from all of the fall shows to give fans a sense of what's going on right there on stage, so if you don't follow the Ants Twitter, start following! Had you been following along, you would've known that our astute Tweeter noticed Dave switch guitars for the last song, meaning that whatever was there (Last Stop) got replaced.
The Tour continues November 3 (that's tonight if you're reading this on November 3) in Uniondale on Long Island.
And don't forget, we here at Antsmarching.org are co-hosting a party with our friends at Mix 104.1 in Boston are hosting a pre-party prior to the Beantown shows. Read up here and follow the links for more details.
Dave and Tim also performed for the 25th anniversary of Farm Aid in early October. A fellow Ant was at the event and did a nice write up perspective on the anniversary of the show (including a quote from Dave). Have a read of it here.
But wait... There's more! Don't forget there is still time to Pre-Order Live In New York City, the next DMB official release. Citi Field night 2, featuring a sharp Proudest Monkey and a partial of Blackjack, making its live debut, is available for pre-order until November 5.
It wasn't the worst kept secret, and lately, with rumors flying about that there would be no shows in November, I guess you could say it's a surprise. But it is official; The Warehouse announced Dave Matthews Band is touring in November.
This will be the last tour until 2012. The first show is November 2 in Buffalo, NY, and the tour wraps up where it all began 20 years ago, Charlottesville, on November 20. You'll note there are merely 2 shows in C'ville, not the 3 as rumored for, well, for a long time. Of course we here at Antsmarching.org have some plans in store for C'ville, so keep checking back here for more details.
Ticketing for Warehouse members begins September 9, and the public sale beings September 24 (25th for some shows).

The Summer Tour may be on break now, but that doesn't mean that the talk of future tours has dissipated. According to The Las Vegas Sun, the Dave Matthews Band will perform at the Planet Hollywood Theater for the Performing Arts in "October or November". Couple of things worth noting - the venue is only a 7000 seat arena, a bit on the tiny side for the full band to perform. Additionally, sometimes "Dave Matthews Band" means "Dave", or "Dave and Tim", so if this means it will truly be a full-band show is not exactly known yet either. And then throw in the fact that one show does not equate a fall tour, we really don't know a heck of a lot based off this listing. Not to be such a downer. Sources have told antsmarching.org that DMB has looked into venues for a possible fall tour, but that is a common practice for the band these days, and does not guarantee any future tour.
Speaking of future tours, as in 2010 tours, a report out of Australia has the boys "looking to return" to the land of Yahoo Serious next year. There are rumblings of a European Tour and a fall South American Tour in 2010 as well, and they naturally couldn't skip the good ole U.S. of A., so if all of that comes true, 2010 will turn out to be a monster tour for the Dave Matthews Band.
