Dave Matthews Band

Are you looking for an original way to make the summer of 2008 unforgettable? Look no further, because on June 7th Busch Stadium is the place to be! This is a unique chance to experience the first concert under the stars at your favorite new stadium. The Dave Matthews Band and their guest, The Black Crowes, will be christening the new ballpark in front of 30,000 fans for one exceptional and memorable night that cannot be missed. This Dave Matthews Band appearance will be their first since spring of 2006 and their one and only show in Missouri scheduled for this year.

Busch Stadium has a history of electrifying concerts that many St. Louisians can still vividly recall. In August of 1966, "Beatlemania" cast a spell over this baseball city with a concert that drew over 21,000 fans to our ballpark. Baseball and music fans alike were there to experience the world's largest and most influential pop phenomenon, The Beatles. A good seat that night in August cost these Beatlemaniacs only $4.50 to get an up-close and personal view of the ever popular mop tops. The concert also proved to be a historical point in the history of the group: Five shows and eight days later, the August 29th performance at Candlestick Park in San Francisco was their last concert together.

While The Beatle's concerts may have ended, concerts at Busch Stadium had just begun. In June of 1976, Ted Nugent, Jeff Beck, Fleetwood Mac and Jefferson Starship came out to rock the crowd for the first event of "Superjam 76." Superjam was a touring mass-market rock, pop and soul show that was so immense it could only be staged in a major stadium. The show was an incredible one day package for concertgoers to scream, sing and dance to their favorite musicians and bands for just one low ticket price. Superjam was such a success that the popular event continued for several more years in 1977, '78, '80, '82 and '83. Blue Oyster Cult, Stevie Wonder, Styx, Sammy Hagar and REO Speedwagon carried Superjam on to make it a continued sensation throughout the years.

Other concerts that took place at Busch Stadium include The Who, who came to St. Louis and performed for three hours in August of 1989. The Rolling Stones then followed in September of the same year playing twenty-five of their classic hit recordings. In August of 1990, classic rock took a back seat to the short-lived but no less influential pop group the New Kids on the Block. NKOTB performed to a nearly sold-out show that can undoubtedly be vividly recalled by thousands of their enthusiastic female fans.

This year the fun continues, giving St. Louisians a unique opportunity to enjoy not only a quality baseball team at Busch Stadium, but some quality music as well. With the majestic Gateway Arch and downtown St. Louis serving as a backdrop beyond the outfield walls, Dave Matthews Band will rock the stadium on the evening of June 7th for a massive crowd.
