The Dave Matthews Band has announced its 2023 fall U.S. Headline Tour with two nights at John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville.

The performances on Nov. 10 and Nov. 11 will have a portion of proceeds donated to benefit the resident-led redevelopment of Charlottesville’s public housing.

This contribution is in addition to the $5 million dollars that Bama Works, Dave Matthews Band and Red Light Management have already committed to the project.

Dave Matthews Band’s ongoing partnership with The Nature Conservancy has resulted in three million trees being planted since 2020.  This year’s partnership, which will continue with the fall tour, will bring the total to four million trees.

Fans can join in this mission by adding an optional donation of $2 per ticket to plant a tree with The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees campaign – a major forest restoration effort with the goal of planting a billion trees around the world by 2025.

Tickets go on sale on Sept. 15 at 10 a.m.
