Cape Town - The Dave Matthews Band will be performing in South Africa later this year.

94.5 Kfm made the announcement on Tuesday morning on their breakfast show.

The Dave Matthews Band will be performing in Cape Town on Saturday, 30 November at the Grand Arena, GrandWest and in Johannesburg on Tuesday, 3 December at the Coca-Cola Dome.

An American rock band started by South African-born David John Matthews, they consist of Carter Beauford (drums), Jeff Coffin (saxophone), Stefan Lessard (bass), Dave Matthews (vocals, guitar), Tim Reynolds (guitar), Rashawn Ross (trumpet) and Boyd Tinsley (violin).

Born in Johannesburg, Dave Matthews went to high school at St Stithians College but moved to New York in 1986. This will be his very first performance in South Africa.

Known for hits like Crash into Me, Too Much, Satellite and Tripping Billies, the Dave Matthews band are touring in support of their latest album, Away From The World, which Rolling Stone named as one of the Top 50 Albums of 2012.

Tickets go on sale today at 09:00 and are available through Computicket and Big Concerts' website.

Ticket prices range from R400-R600 for Cape Town and R400-R675 for Johannesburg.

    Does Big Concerts believe that noone in Durban is interested in The Dave Matthews Band in the same way that they chose to ignore Durban for Rodriguez or do they perhaps choose to blame ECR for this as well?

      Richard Prowse - 2013-06-11 08:58

      Big concerts are only interested in money

      Kelvin Graham Strachan - 2013-06-11 19:41

      ECR has no pull at all.

    I think most of Durban would buy tickets and go to watch DMB in Durban. If the organisers think they will not make enough money/sell enough tickets to fill Kings Park, why dont they rather have it at the Tennis stadium. They have had many sold out concerts there before (Counting Crows). Its very expensive to fly to JHB/CTP.

    Some of the best muso's in the world in this band.. I will sell my arm and leg for this, who wants to buy?

      Try Oscar, but I think he'd want two legs...make sure negotiations are nowhere near a bathroom. He already has enough arms...fireARMS.
