DMB to Play C'ville Double-Header

By Waldo Jaquith
Dave Matthews Band will play a pair of concerts in Charlottesville in September, the Charlottesville Daily Progress reports. The concerts will christen the University of Virginia's new basketball hall, John Paul Jones Arena, which holds 16,000 people. Concerts have been held in its predecessor, University Hall, but the acoustics were terrible. The performances will be held on Friday, September 22 and Saturday, September 23. It will be the first time DMB has played in Charlottesville since their 2001 Scott Stadium show, which was, in turn, the first time they'd played in Charlottesville since the 1996 Crash release party, which wasn't even a full-band show. There's no word on when tickets go on sale.
