Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds have just announced that they will embark on an acoustic US tour together this year. These two members of Dave Matthews Band will not be taking the rest of the group with them, but will merely be embarking on a rare stripped-down series of dates as a duo.

The new dates kick off on May 3rd 2017 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheatre, though first they have a couple of sold-out Texas shows next week (January 25th and 26th) and a big concert weekend in Mexico in February as part of their Riviera Maya event. Taking place at Barceló Maya Beach, supporting acts at this event include Aldo López-Gavilán, Vusi Mahlasela and Carlos Varela.

The new dates include double nights at Nashville's Ascend Amphitheatre, Philadelphia's Mann Center, Chicago's Northerly Island and the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, New York and will take place over May and June. Meanwhile, March through April takes them to Europe for shows at London's Eventim Apollo, as well as dates in Dublin, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Vienna and Milan.

Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds (otherwise known as Dave and Tim) have been performing together as a duo since 1993 and have released three live albums together including 1999's 'Live at Luther College', 2007's 'Live at Radio City' and 2010's 'Live in Las Vegas'. Both musicians have their own bands; Dave with Dave Matthews Band and Tim with TR3; though Tim has played electric guitar on records for Dave Matthews Band since 2008.
