Dave Matthews Band headlined Hershey, PA’s Hersheypark Stadium on Saturday night. As previously reported, Matthews caught a ride to the show with a fan named Emily after he got a flat tire during a pre-show bike ride. He thanked his new friend from the stage, gave her a pair of passes and even busted out “Lover Lay Down” for the first time since 2010 at her request.
In addition, jazz guitarist Mark Whitfield joined Dave Matthews Band onstage for a few songs. Whitfield emerged partway through DMB’s set for “If Only” and “Crash Into Me.” The guitarist sat in with Dave Matthews Band for the first time at Brooklyn, NY’s Barclays Center this past December and joined the group onstage in Hartford, CT earlier this summer.
Dave Matthews Band’s summer tour continues at Tampa, FL’s Midflorida Credit Union Amphitheatre at the Florida State Fairgrounds this evening.
