The Caravan begins today. As most regular readers of The Guru know, Dave Matthews Band is doing four shows this year (and only four). Each show is in a major city, with DMB set as the headlining act for all three nights of each festival. The first event kicks off today in Atlantic City, New Jersey. These festivals will probably go down in DMB history as some of the greatest performances the band ever gave and I have a strong feeling that DMB is going to pull out some real gems during their three headlining nights.
Unfortunately, I am unable to attend this festival, thanks to a wedding that is taking me away all weekend. I’m sure I will be able to find several clips on the internet come next week, but I am still disappointed that I cannot attend the first ever Caravan. However, you can attend if you’d like. Tickets are still available and can be purchased at the box office at Bader Field. For more details visit www.dmbcaravan.com
Here’s what rocked this week:
Free Caravan Sampler
Looking for some free music? The Dave Matthews Band is offering the Caravan sampler, free on ITunes. It includes songs from O.A.R., Gomez, Dawes, and of course, the Dave Matthews Band. Free is a price that’s hard to argue. Head on over to ITunes and pick up your copy today.
New Music Coming From Mick Jagger
Mick Jagger has been hard at work recording a new album, but not with the Rolling Stones. It’s a super group called Super Heavy and features Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame. The album is due out in September. There is no word on whether the band will tour behind the record.
More Music From Chickenfoot
This was some of the best news I read all week. Chickenfoot is mixing their new album. I didn’t even know that the band recorded a new album or planned to release any new material. I honestly thought Chickenfoot was a “one and done” band. Now there are even rumors of a tour. That’s some great news indeed!
