The NFL season kicks off tonight, but before the Vikings and Saints take a crack at the field, jam band favorites the Dave Matthews Band will take the stage in New Orleans for the NFL Kickoff concert event, which will be televised on NBC and NFL Network beginning at 7:30 p.m.
In addition, The Dave Matthews Band announced its fall 2010 U.S. arena tour yesterday and among the 20-some dates is a stop at the North Charleston Coliseum on Nov. 17. If you're an S.C. fan, this is likely your best shot to see Dave and the boys before the end of the year.
According to the release, an online ticket request period will begin Thursday at 6 p.m. and concludes Monday, Sept. 20th, at noon at http://www.warehouse.davematthewsband.com/. Tickets for the North Charleston concert will go on sale to the public on Friday, Sept. 24.
Fresh off its 20th consecutive summer outing, DMB will start its fall tour Nov. 2 at HSBC Arena in Buffalo, NY, and will conclude with a return to Charlottesville, where Dave Matthews Band formed in 1991. The group will play Charlottesville’s John Paul Jones Arena on November 19th and 20th.
