TVD Live Shots:
Dave Matthews Band
at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, MA, 6/22

Grammy Award-winning Dave Matthews Band continued their North American tour on June 22, 2018, at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, MA. Touring in support of their ninth studio album, Come Tomorrow (RCA Records), the band will continue to travel across the U.S. and Canada finishing at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA.

As the sun began to set in Mansfield, the sold-out crowd was buzzing with excitement as the band took the stage with the song “Again & Again” from the new album. Already knowing the lyrics, die-hard fans sung along with Matthews who noticingly gave an appreciative grin. DMB transitioned into the powerful “So Right” which engaged the band as well as the crowd.

Johnny Perry, who traveled from Warwick, RI to see the show and is approaching a milestone 100th DMB concert, noticed the established connection between the band and crowd early on. “It’s been awhile since I’ve seen the band play with that kind of energy,” said Perry. “The band and the crowd were definitely feeding off of each other. I always try to get as many close friends as possible to join me for the DMB Mansfield show. Nearly 15 of us for this past show—it makes the whole experience better.”

This intensity can be partly attributed to new touring keyboardist Buddy Strong whose funky chops were on display. DMB continued their setlist with songs “Grey Street,” “Don’t Drink the Water,” “41,” “You Might Die Trying,” and an encore of “Stay (Wasting Time).”

The new album Come Tomorrow, released June 8, has already debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart. This is a record-breaking seventh consecutive time that the band has earned this top spot on a debuting studio album. Come Tomorrow consists of songs that the band has toured with for more than 12 years and has earned 292,017 equivalent album units in the week ending June 14. Of that total, 285,000 were in traditional album sales—marking the biggest sales week for a rock album in more than four years.

“This particular song is a little bit old, but it’s a lot more of a new song now,” Matthews recently said early on in the tour at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, NJ, leading into the song, “Can’t Stop.”

Dave Matthews Band has been touring for more than 27 years, taking the stage for the first time May 11,1991. In Mansfield, parents and young children were seen smiling and singing along together to their favorite tracks, proving that DMB has endured to truly provide heartwarming live music for generations of families.
