This past Thursday the official DMB website announced the tour line-up for summer 2004. A total of 43 shows are planned. Ayla123 created a nice calendar with all of the tour dates on it. Check it out here.
A few venues were noticeably absent from the line-up. SPAC, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in New York hasn't been skipped since 1999. Also missing are Giants Stadium and Shoreline Amphitheatre. Thankfully, this article reports that more dates are on the way.
Its pretty much a given that the boys are going to come back out even after they've said, "Thank you, and good night." But should we always get encores? Dave responded to questions about DMB's encore performances for the Philadelphia Enquirer in this article.
The 'neuticles story' was told multiple times by Dave during this tour, and is a fan favorite for Davespeak. A special thank you to Craig S. of St. Charles, IL for the sugggestion and date confirm for the quote.
