Gov’t Mule, ALO, Umphreys McGee and Bela Fleck to Open for DMB
Earlier this month, the Dave Matthews Band asked its fans to submit five candidates for the high-profile opening spot on its summer tour. As it turns out, a number of bands we regularly cover on Jambands.com are popular with the DMB-faithful and will appear on the groups summer amphitheater tour including G Love & Special Sauce (5/30-6/10), Matisyahu (6/13-14), ALO (6/16-21), Gomez (6/24-28), Umphreys McGee (7/1-5), Govt Mule (7/29-8/5) and Bela Fleck & the Flecktones (8/5-6). Dave Matthews Band will also return to New Yorks Randalls Island, the site of last years Summer Getaway, on August 5 and 6 with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones and Govt Mule among the artists already signed on as support.
In total, the Dave Matthews Bands summer tour will stretch four months and hit markets in all corners of the country. As of now, the group will close out its trek close to home at Charlottesville, VAs John Paul Jones Arena on September 23.
