Tickets for the previously announced Dave Matthews Band concerts at Citi Field Friday, July 16 and Saturday, July 17 will go on sale tomorrow Friday, February 26 at 10 a.m. online at www.507TIXX.com and by phone at 718-507-TIXX.
Dave Matthews Band will be the second artist to perform at Citi Field following Paul McCartney's historic three sold-out shows in July 2009. The Grammy Award-winning group is touring Europe in support of its album, "Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King," its first studio album in four years.
The Mets are continuing their musical tradition of hosting some of the biggest acts in music that began with the Beatles' legendary musical christening of Shea Stadium in 1965. The former home of the Mets hosted acts including Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, the Police, the Rolling Stones, and the Who. Paul McCartney and now Dave Matthews Band are keeping the rock-n-roll spirit going at the Mets' new home.
The shows will be held rain or shine and are promoted by Live Nation.
