Dave Matthews Band kicked off their late fall tour last week in Columbus and hit up Madison Square Garden for a pair of shows on Thursday and Friday.The mini-tour ends with a pair of shows in Charlottesville in just two weeks. DMB ends the year on 12/28 with a year-ending free show in South Beach, FL.
On the first night, Dave brought welcomed Eric Krasno to the stage for “Lie In Our Graves.” On night two, a slew of other guests joined DMB including Warren Haynes.
As Warren strapped his guitar on and got set, the crowd cheered. As Warren’s guitar rang out the opening notes of “Cortez the Killer,” the crowd erupted. Warren and DMB have teamed up on several occasions to play the Neil Young masterpiece and the collaboration never disappoints. Towards the end of the jam, the song busts out of a jazzy interlude with Tim Reynolds and Warren weaving soaring guitar solos.
After the 16+ minute Cortez, Warren sat around for one of Dave’s classic tunes, “Jimi Thing.”
