Dave Matthews Band Lands Jimmy Cliff For Tour

Seminal reggae star Jimmy Cliff, who helped popularize the music genre with the 1972 film and soundtrack "The Harder They Come," will celebrate the release of his new album with a string of dates opening for the Dave Matthews Band in early July.

Cliff's new record, "Humanitarian," is due out on June 22, and on July 6 in Phoenix, the singer will hook up with Dave Matthews Band for nine shows, ending with the July 17 concert at the Gorge in George, Washington.

Cliff is the latest high-profile artist to sign on for this tour, which has also landed opening commitments from such artists as Alanis Morissette, the Roots, Ozomatli, Santana, Everything, and the Neville Brothers.
