Six shows into its annual summer tour, the Dave Matthews Band has yet to play a gig without bringing a special guest to the stage. Last night the group performed at Camden, NJs Tweeter Center at the Waterfront and brought out local Philadelphia hero ?uestlove to play drums on an inspired version of Warehouse. Not only has ?uestloves band the Roots opened for the Dave Matthews Band in the past, but the two groups collaborated on Why Oh Why and Crush at the NAACP Awards.
On Tuesday Xavier Rudd also closed out his brief opening run for the DMB in Camden, NJ and appeared on a version of Don’t Drink the Water. The midweek gig was also notable for the return of Sweet Up and Down, a number Matthews played with Trey Anastasio and his other Friends in 2003 and 2004, but which the DMB has not performed since the summer of 2000. The Dave Matthews Bands summer tour rolls on with a gig at Burgettstown, PAs Post-Gazette Pavilion at Star Lake tomorrow.
