Why would you assume it's going to be smaller? There is no official statement saying such nor any historical evidence to base it on.

    I'm not arguing, it was a genuine question. He used the "no official announcement" argument I wanted to see if he knew something in regards to his statement about it being smaller.

    Well, it's true there's been no official announcement from management. That's not an argument. In regards to a smaller tour, I can't say what I do or don't know, but I do believe we won't see a tour format we've been used to. If they tour at all.

    I do apologize for the back and forth. I should have ignored your comment even if I disagreed with you.

    I completely agree that it's all speculative as of now; I just hate when people are overwhelmingly negative.

    But again, sorry.

    I don't think anyone is being negative about this. Some are presenting the other side of the coin and people are getting bent out of shape over it. No one wants the band to end but it's going to happen eventually. Some think sooner than later, it's just discussion.

    Just in general, I mean. It's been 26 years so I am definitely not oblivious to the fact the end is the near for the band in the next 10 years.

    But I just try to stay as positive as I can on here.

    Could be, but I certainly hope in ten years I'll still be able to see Dave Matthews in some shape or form. Whether its DMB D&T or just D.

    Re: 2017 Rumors

    Why does everyone think DMB is needs to call it quits when there are dozens and dozens of bands/acts that are 10, 20, even 30 years older than them still out there actively touring?

    The most frequent thing I've seen is because Carter is old and people think he won't play anymore and if he doesn't the band won't.

    Even though there are drummers older than him still playing.

    I don't recall anyone saying they need to call it quits.

    I tend to agree that it will be smaller in nature. I was just curious if you knew something... I know you won't say if you do or don't.

    He will play Dave solo and Dave and Tim shows until he can't anymore is my guess.

    Springsteen is 67 and still going strong and is about to do a residency which is wild. 17 years older my god

    A friend of mine is a hardcore Phish fan and was told by the crew they're doing the labor day weekend run and then NYE and that's it until next summer

    Idk if I agree with that. I feel like “yes” brings more follow ups than a “we’ll see” kind of thing. Honestly, it just depends on who’s asking I guess haha.

    Do any of them tour like dmb?
    I mean every year and for as many shows?

    I can see them cutting way back on shows and/or every other year for example.
    I could even see what many bands do and tour regionally yr to yr
