What would you say if we told you Dave Matthews Band is coming to town this summer? We ask, because they are.
Walmart AMP officials this week announced the band will be back in town for a show on Tuesday, Sept. 22 at the venue.
In association with the show, Dave Matthews Band has pledged to help plant one million trees as part of The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Tree’s campaign. With every ticket sold, an option donation of $2 per ticket will go toward the effort to plant one billion trees around the world by 2025. Here’s more info about that.
In addition, according to the press release announcing the show, the band is working to help neutralize the biggest contributor to a concert’s carbon footprint – fan travel. In addition to the band’s footprint, REVERB will be calculating the carbon footprint associated with fan travel to DMB shows in 2020 and the band will be neutralizing these emissions by supporting carbon reduction projects.
Over their career Dave Matthews Band has sold more than 25 million tickets, and 38 million CDs and DVDs. Their 2018 release, Come Tomorrow marked the band’s seventh consecutive album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
The band was last in town for a show a couple years ago in 2018.
Tickets to the show range from $49.50-$115, and go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 21. To purchase, visit the Walton Arts Center box office, call 479-443-5600, or visit amptickets.com.
