Dave Matthews Band announces second benefit concert in Charlottesville

On March 26, the Dave Matthews Band announced a second Charlottesville benefit concert that — if sold out like the first one could add as much as $2.5 million to a community endowment that is distributed to local charities.

The second will be held at Scott Stadium at 6 p.m. April 22, the day after the band's already-sold out April 21 benefit.

John Redick, the head of the Charlottesville-Albemarle Community Foundation and administrator of the band's Bama Works Fund, said scheduling the back-to-back concerts in Scott Stadium minimizes concert expenses and allows for a greater gift to the community. Redick thanked both the city and the University for their cooperation and support of the upcoming events.

"In the last 18 months the band's Bama Works Fund has distributed more than half a million dollars to 25 community organizations in such areas as youth, the disadvantaged, preservation and the environment," Redick said. "Their giving addresses issues that are meaningful to individual band members and important to the quality of life in our community."

Like the first concert, there will be a special ticket pre-sale lottery on March 30, for U.Va. students and Charlottesville-area residents at the Scott Stadium Box Office at 4 p.m. At 6 p.m., area residents also can order tickets by calling (804) 262-8100 or going to Tickets for the general public will go on sale March 31 at 10 a.m.
