Event Details

The Dave Matthews band will be returning to John Paul Jones Arena for two nights, December 14th and 15th!

Dave Matthews Band have announced a 10-city arena tour kicking off on November 27 at Schottenstein Center in Columbus, OH. The east coast trek will include a two-night stand at New York’s famed Madison Square Garden on November 29 and November 30 as well as two hometown shows in Charlottesville, VA at John Paul Jones Arena on December 14 and December 15. A portion of proceeds from the John Paul Jones shows will go to support the redevelopment of public housing in Charlottesville.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band will be a very special guest and open both shows at John Paul Jones Arena.
