Dave Matthews Band
After taking a "year off" in 2011, Dave Matthews has gone back to a good old-fashioned trek for 2012, and is bringing a huge range of artists along for the ride. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Fitz & The Tantrums, Lettuce, Gary Clarke Jr. and others have been tapped as revolving openers. The tour kicks off on May 18 and runs through July, with a few West Coast dates after that.
