Dave Matthews Band Debuts "Black and Bluebird"
The band rocked New York City's Ed Sullivan Theater for just over an hour Thursday night, as part of the "Legends of Letterman" series- a farewell tour for the iconic late night host. DMB first appeared on the Late Show twenty years ago and this performance was a beautiful way to bring everything full circle.
They played a half dozen or so songs including "Don't Drink The Water," "Stay or Leave," and "Grey Street," but the highlight of their set was the debut of their new song "Black and Bluebird." The soft song sounds very similar to the majority of the tracks from 2012's Away From The World, and features quintessential Dave lyrics about mortality, space and love.
Dave Matthews Band kicks off their 2015 Summer Tour next week in Austin, Texas. They'll play 47 shows in 39 cities, wrapping things up in Phoenix September 13th.
As for Letterman, he'll ride off into the late night moonlight May 20th.
