The Dave Matthews Band sure must love The Woodlands. The popular 23-year-old band will kick off its latest tour at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion on May 16 — the same spot it launched its previous tour a year ago on practically the same date. 

But without a new album to promote, fans can expect a different experience from this time around.

 The band will go back and forth from electric to acoustic, and from numbers featuring the full band to ones with only a couple of musicians. 

The latest summer tour, dubbed "A Very Special Evening with Dave Matthews Band," will feature two sets at every stop. The set list, as usual, will be a variety of songs from their eight albums. But the band will go back and forth from electric to acoustic, and from numbers featuring the full band to ones with only a couple of musicians.

The  42-date, 32-city jaunt around North America also includes a May 17 stop in Dallas.

Although DMB hasn't put out any new work since its 2012 album Away from the World, the group is said to be working on a new album, which could come out later this year. If it did come out in 2014, it would be their quickest follow-up album since 2002's Busted Stuff.

Tickets for the 2014 summer tour go on sale to the general public on Friday, Feb. 7, through Live Nation or at the Gexa box office. But Citi cardmembers can already buy tickets for most dates through Citi's Private Pass program.
