Dave Matthews Band isn’t touring this summer due to a 2017 hiatus, but Philadelphia will get a little bit of Dave, anyway.
Dave Matthews on Tuesday announced a couple of dates at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts as part of a 2017 U.S. tour with lead Dave Matthews Band guitarist Tim Reynolds. The tour kicks off May 3 in Tuscaloosa, Ala., before winding its way to the Mann Center for two stripped-down, acoustic shows on June 2 and 3.
Symphony orchestras across the country are downsizing because of dwindling attendance, but in an unusual twist, certain shows are delighting a new generation of fans and helping concert halls sell more tickets.
At the Music Hall at Fair Park in Dallas, a symphony orchestra played to a crowd where some fans were actually dressed in costume, CBS News' Omar Villafranca reports.
Fans were there to experience music from their favorite video game, "The Legend of Zelda," organized in a four-movement symphony.
