Dave Matthews Band kicked off their 2012 Winter Tour with a first; the band performed Away From The World in its entirety. This is the first show where DMB played an album completely. And they practically played it straight through.
Fans were expecting a heavy dose of AFTW, but this was a surprise (the good kind). Debuting were Drunken Soldier, Belly Full, and a full-band version of Broken Things (previously played at a Dave and Tim show). Other than that, there were not any shockers, but when you have a show with an entire album, do you need more shockers? Well, some do, but we've grown accustomed to them by now. Reaction from fans has been quite positive (so far). The tour continues with another show at IZOD and then DMB plays Jimmy Fallon on December 3.
In case you forgot, the Dave Matthews Band 2012 winter tour begins November 30 (which is most likely today if you're reading this on time) in East Rutherford, NJ. The tour begins with a Sandy Relief show; proceeds are going to benefit those effected by the "super storm" that devastated the East Coast.
The tour - 15 shows running until December 22 - is in support of Away From The World the latest DMB album. Expect a solid rotation of those songs to appear at the shows, and that means the live debut (hopefully!) of Drunken Soldier, Broken Things (in a full-band show), and perhaps even the Dave solo song Belly Full. As for what else? Who knows... Stefan once again teased fans by mentioning on his Twitter that he's hopeful that Monkey Man - a song from the infamous Lillywhite Sessions and never performed live - would make a debut some day. Will it be this tour? You'll just have to check out a show to find out.

The long speculated Dave Matthews Band winter tour is officially announced. According to the Official Site, DMB is heading out on what is basically a winter tour (I know, Winter doesn't start until December 21, just go with it) beginning November 30 in New Jersey at the IZOD center and runs until December 22 (winter!) in Philadelphia.
The Warehouse members can purchase tickets beginning on October 4, the rest of you slugs have to wait until October 19.
