Just coming off the stage after an amazing show in Munich. We played a big'ol building from 1918 that used to be a railway repair facility. The weirdest places seem to bring out the best shows. We're having a blast out here. Looking forward to a day off in Milan before our show there on Monday. See you soon. Ciao.

We continue to rock our way across Europe. This tour has been a blast so far. We've been enjoying the company of the band Alberta Cross as they've opened the shows over here. If you haven't had the pleasure of hearing these guys, we suggest you do. They're a crew favorite. Last night's show at the O2 Arena in London included the return of Sugar Will. We've been excited to hear that tune again. In a short while, the doors will be opening here at the Apollo Theatre in Manchester for the show this evening. See you soon...

The tour is off and running and DMB has set the bar high from the start. We kicked off with two outstanding shows in Hartford with set lists unlike any we can remember. We're all excited for what's to come. See y'all in Toronto on Tuesday.

With a couple weeks of tour under our belts, we're settling into our summer groove. The shows so far have been really fun. Tonight in Mansfield, the audience forcefully took over the lead vocal on Dancing Nancies in its entirety. As well as they were singing, the band just smiled and went with it. We have a few days off before Bonnarroo. Be safe getting there and we'll see y'all on Sunday.

Incredibly fun show in Cinci tonight! We're having a blast out here. Danny Barnes is back with us for a few shows. We really dig him and hope you get to check him out. Heading to Missouri for a show tomorrow. G'nite all.

Just coming off an excellent couple days in Camden. We're all having a great time out here! We've been humbled to have Martin Sexton opening the last few shows and are sorry to see him go. Dave mentioned more than once that he's been a fan of Martins for over 20 years. If you don't know this man's music, we strongly urge you to check him out. Long ride to Wisconsin tonight, but we're really looking forward to the Alpine shows. See you there this weekend.

Incredible 3+ hour set atop Montage Mountain tonight! DMB impressed throughout. They pulled out the old intro to One Sweet World for the first time in a long while. Tonight's will be a recording worth checking out, for certain. Here we come New York City. Can't wait to see you again.

It's been an amazing couple weeks culminating in an incredibly powerful show in West Palm Beach tonight. We heard the return of Last Stop this evening as well as a memorable rendition of Cortez The Killer featuring the talented Warren Haynes on guitar. For the past two nights the horn section was joined by Lasim Richards on trombone for a few tunes, trading solos with Rashawn and Jeff in a seamless and soulful manner. Last week in Charlotte, Branford Marsalis sat in on a few songs leaving us with a memory that most of us in the band and crew will hold up as one of the finest moments in our careers. It was an honor to share the stage with those men. Tomorrow we head home for the first real break in a little over two months. We feel confident in saying that most of us out here can't wait to get home to friends and family, but with a part of us anxious to get back to what we do best. Thanks for stickin' with us. See y'all in Wichita.
