DMB 25th Anniversary Hometown Show to Benefit Charlottesville Community Charities

Saturday, May 7th 2016 - 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm
at John Paul Jones Arena
295 Massie Road

Dave Matthews Band will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a special hometown benefit concert at John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday, May 7. To express its gratitude for the incredible support the community has provided from the beginning, the band will donate all net proceeds from the concert, totaling over $1 million, to charitable programs in the Charlottesville area via its Bama Works Fund.

In 1999, Dave Matthews Band established the Bama Works Fund at the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation and has subsequently contributed a portion of each concert ticket sold to the fund. To date, the fund has raised more than $40 million and made over 1,300 grants, primarily to charitable programs in the Charlottesville area community. It has also responded to a variety of national and international needs.

An online ticket presale for the May 7 show will begin on Wednesday, March 23, at 10am ET at www.warehouse.davematthewsband.com for members of the DMB Warehouse Fan Association.

 Citi is the official credit card of Dave Matthews Band 2016 tour. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets to this show through Citi’s Private Pass Program beginning Tuesday, March 29, at 10 AM ET. For complete presale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com.

 Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 1, at 10 AM ET.

Dave Matthews Band formed in Charlottesville in early 1991 when vocalist/guitarist Dave Matthews sought out a few local musicians – including drummer Carter Beauford, saxophonist LeRoi Moore, bassist Stefan Lessard and violinist Boyd Tinsley – to help him record a demo of some songs he had written. The band’s first public performances were at a Middle East Children’s Alliance Benefit at Trax Nightclub on March 14, 1991 and at the City of Charlottesville’s Earth Day Festival in April of that same year. Dave Matthews Band’s first official gig was on May 11, 1991 at a private party held on the rooftop of a downtown Charlottesville warehouse.

The band has always had a special connection to Charlottesville, where it honed its live show on local stages. In 1993, Dave Matthews Band self-released its first album, Remember Two Things. The band signed with RCA Records and released its first studio album, Under The Table and Dreaming, in 1994. They celebrated its release with a show in Charlottesville, where the mayor had proclaimed it “Dave Matthews Band Day.”

Since then, Dave Matthews Band has sold more than 20 million tickets and a collective 38 million CDs and DVDs combined. It is the first group in history to have six consecutive studio albums debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 – Before These Crowded Streets, Everyday, Busted Stuff, Stand Up, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King and Away from the World.
