Dave Matthews to Play Live on Oct. 18

The Dave Matthews Band will be performing at the Mandela Forum of Florence on Oct. 18. The concert will start at 8 p.m., with tickets costing from 46 to 69 euros. Tickets can be purchased at www.ticketone.it.

The concert continues the band’s experiment from their tour last year, with shows consisting of two concerts in one. This tour will also include their first-ever trip to the United Arab Emirates.

The tour is the first European tour from the band since 2010, with stops in Abu Dhabi. The European leg kicks off on Oct. 11 in Lisbon, Portugal, the site of the band’s Live Trax 10 release which featured a surprise appearance from Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello. Additional tour stops include an extensive jaunt through Italy, and concerts in Germany, Belgium and France, before the band finishes up with a run through the United Kingdom. They will play at the O2 in London and close on Nov. 13 in Dublin.

Dave Matthews Band’s first and only performance in Florence was 20 years ago. The Florence concert is one of the four the band will hold in Italy. The first one will be at the Mediolanum Forum in Assago, Milan, the second in Florence, the third in Rome and the last in Padua.
