The Dave Matthews Band Is Coming To Montreal This Week

Montreal has its fair share of celebrity visits.

TL;DR The Dave Matthews Band is performing at the Bell Centre in Montreal this weekend. Scroll to the bottom of the article for information on where to purchase tickets.

The Montreal public is always eager for these brushes with celebrity.

The combination of the city's party spirit and the cultural prowess of its residents make Montreal a top market for concerts and festivals that feature some of the biggest names in entertainment.

That's probably why, this year, the Dave Matthews Band has made Montreal its only Canadian stop on its North American Fall 2018 tour.

This Saturday December 8th, the popular rock band will take over the Bell Centre.

Who knows when the band will tour, let alone come to Canada, again? This could be Montreal residents' only opportunity for a while to see the band live in concert.

This current tour comes after the release of the band's latest album, Come Tomorrow, their first record in six years. The album debuted at number one on the Bilboard 200

But in addition to the latest tracks, fans should expect to hear some of the greatest DMB classics.

It's sure to be an unforgettable evening.

Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.

We see them every day doing their very best to make us late to work and to destroy our wheels so it's about time we give them some love!
