Dave Matthews and his eponymous band continue to embrace their unofficial title as music’s boys of summer. Keeping its annual tradition alive, Dave Matthews Band has revealed a 49-date national routing that will run from spring through late summer.

This year’s tour launches with a May 28-29 stand at Comcast Theatre in Hartford, CT, and concludes nearly four months later on September 15 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN.

In addition to the opening engagement, DMB’s calendar includes several other multiple-night runs. Some of the highlights include June 7-8 at Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA; July 3-4 at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in Troy, NY; July 16-17 at Citi Field in New York, NY; and September 3-5 at Gorge Amphitheatre in Quincy, WA.

Public ticket sales for the trek begin February 26. As usual, the tour will feature a constant rotation of supporting acts, including Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Ben Harper and Relentless7, Gov’t Mule,and Raphael Saadiq, among others.

DMB’s 2010 tour announcement came just as Fox News’ Chicago syndicate reported that the Chicago Cubs are discussing a possible Wrigley Field concert date for the group. While no deals have been made yet, Fox News noted that the stadium’s plans could be finalized sometime in the next two months.

If the band is booked for Wrigley Field, it won’t be their first time setting up shop in a ballpark. Just last year, DMB got into the swing of things with a special pair of concerts at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox.

Matthews and his cohorts also recently had the distinction of being named the No. 1 touring artist of the past decade by industry resource Pollstar. According to the publication’s numbers, DMB took in approximately $529 million and sold 11.6 million tickets from 2000 to 2009.

This year’s tour will continue to promote the June 2009 release “Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King.” The album, marking DMB’s seventh studio record, peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and quickly racked up Platinum-level sales nationally.
