In early 2007, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds played a series of European and U.S. dates, including an evening at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall, which was released as a CD and DVD later that year, entering The Billboard 200 at No. 3. Live Trax Volume 8, a 2004 DMB show from Alpine Valley, was released in February.
Dave Matthews Band played its first shows of 2007 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV in March. Both concerts were subsequently released as the 4-CD Live Trax Volume 9. The first Live Trax release of a show outside the U.S., 5.25.07 Pavilion Atlantico in Lisbon, Portugal, marked the 10th volume in the series.
After European and Australian dates, Dave Matthews Band launched an extensive U.S. summer tour that culminated with two nights at the legendary Hollywood Bowl. The tour had included the band’s third park concert, benefitting Atlanta’s Piedmont Park, where DMB performed for 50,000 fans and were joined by The Allman Brothers Band. The concert was released as a CD and DVD later that year.
In September, Dave Matthews Band joined John Mayer, Phil Vassar and Nas for a Concert For Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA. The concert was conceived as a way to help students, faculty and other members of the community move forward in the aftermath of the tragic events that had transpired there in April.
DMB became one of the first artists on Facebook in November and DMB Mobile launched in late 2007, offering official DMB ring tones for the first time.
