Second Dave Matthews Band Concert Cancelled

April 11, 2001 -- The event organizers, with the consent of Dave Matthews Band management, have decided to cancel the Sunday April 22 performance at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Virginia. The sold out Saturday, April 21 show at Scott Stadium will go on as scheduled. The band members and their management apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment this cancellation may cause the band’s fans or the community.

Said Dave Matthews Band manager Coran Capshaw "We decided to launch the 2001 tour in Charlottesville for two reasons. We wanted to provide our hometown fans a truly special local show while, simultaneously raising money for Bama Works Fund, the band’s charitable fund that focuses on the needs of the Charlottesville-Albemarle Community. Through this special benefit engagement, the band wishes to give thanks to both their fans and to the community who have been extremely supportive throughout the past 10 years."

"The ticket demand for the first show greatly exceeded our expectations and plans. While I initially thought the fans and the community would be further benefited by the addition of a second show, I now believe we should work within the limits of one show. The April 21 show will generate more than $850,000 for the Bama Works Fund. To date, ticket sales for the second show do not assure sufficient additional net proceeds for the charitable fund to justify the strain on the community a second show may bring."

The band appreciates the great outpouring of support they have received regarding both the performance and the charitable efforts the show will support.

In addition to the April 21 show in Charlottesville, Dave Matthews Band will headline two shows at the Alltel Pavilion at Walnut Creek (April 28 and 29), RFK Stadium in Washington D.C. (June 9), and the Verizon Wireless Virginia Beach Amphitheater (July 27).
