The Dave Matthews Band returns to the lead singer's home country of South Africa for the first time since 2013, as part of the band's world tour.
The South African shows come off the heels of Dave Matthews Band releasing their 10th studio album, Walk Around The Moon, on RCA Records. Walk Around The Moon is a pandemic-born record that is as much a reflection on the current times as it is an urge to find common ground. The twelve-track album, recorded with producer Rob Evans in studios throughout Seattle, Charlottesville, and Los Angeles, uniquely captures this moment in time.
Led by powerful singles “Madman’s Eyes,” “Monsters,” and the title track “Walk Around The Moon,” the acclaimed album debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200, #1 on Billboard’s Top Rock & Alternative Albums, and #1 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums charts.
Dave Matthews’ ongoing partnership with The Nature Conservancy has resulted in three million trees being planted since 2020. This year’s continued partnership will bring the total to four million trees. Fans can join in this mission by adding an optional donation of $2 per ticket to plant a tree with The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees campaign – a major forest restoration effort with the goal of planting a billion trees around the world by 2025. For additional details, visit www.dmbtrees.org. Once again, Dave Matthews Band will offset carbon emissions for band/fan travel with the assistance of REVERB, creating a climate positive tour. REVERB will also produce the tour’s annual eco-village.
