The Dave Matthews Band, the top-selling artist in the country this week, has tacked on another six weeks of dates to its North American summer tour.
The trek will now run through August 28 and comprises 48 stadium and amphitheater shows in 35 markets.
The Dave Matthews Band will pick up the new dates July 17 in Schertz, Texas, and continue on to stops in West Palm Beach, Florida; Tampa, Florida; Nashville; Virginia Beach, Virginia; Saratoga Springs, New York; Hershey, Pennsylvania; Ottawa; Montreal; Toronto; George, Washington; and Salt Lake City.
Also new are additional dates in six previously announced cities San Francisco, Detroit, New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago as well as a stop in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on May 14.
The tour kicks off April 21 in the band's hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia, with a benefit performance for the Bama Works Foundation, the band's charity funds disbursing organization.
DMB's Everyday, featuring the single "I Did It" (RealAudio excerpt), beat out Aerosmith's Just Push Play to hold on to the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart for a second straight week.
