The buzz about Dave Matthews Band’s new album, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, is overwhelming and if you poke around on the Internet enough, you’ll come to find out that a few songs from the upcoming record have leaked—it was inevitable. But according to Dave’s Twitter, the bandleader thinks “the leaks may have been part of a grand plan of which I had no part.”
By now, most DMB fans know about the band’s exclusive invite-only for fan club members show on June 1 at the Beacon Theater in New York City. Unless you are a member of the band’s fan club (the Warehouse), you’re most likely not getting in, and even if you did get an invite from the club, you’d have to be lucky enough to get your ticket request confirmed via random selection. With only about 3,000 seats in the room, a very select few will have that opportunity.
For the less fortunate fans that would love to go to the show, but cannot attend for one reason or another, there are several alternative options. The concert is going to be broadcast live across the country on the FUSE (also giving away 4 tickets to the show) cable television network as part of a week’s worth of DMB coverage on the channel surrounding the release of Big Whiskey.
It was also recently announced that popular television website, Hulu.com, will have a live stream of the concert so those who don’t get FUSE will be able to see the show. This will mark the first ever concert stream on the site.
And if you can’t make it to the show, don’t get FUSE, and can’t be parked in front of your computer at 9 p.m. Eastern on June 1 to watch the stream, there is still hope—the concert will still be available to watch on Hulu.com after it is over. Phew!
