Dave Matthews Band at Dos Equis Pavilion (formerly Starplex Pavilion)
Kelly Dearmore Recommends
Given that Dave Matthews Band has made a habit of swinging through town every summer up until last year, it’s understandable if casual fans feel like they’ve heard all there is to hear from the popular, veteran jam band. But for the group’s first tour following a two-year hiatus, the audible changes will be aplenty. Not only will the band likely play fresh tunes from upcoming record Come Tomorrow, but there’ll be a conspicuous violin absence without original member Boyd Tinsley, who is reportedly taking a break from the band. For longtime loyalists and newbies alike, it’ll be interesting to hear how the jangly, jammy hits sound without arguably the group’s most recognizable sonic trait.
