No Neil Young this time

Although recently branded an "aging rock star" whose on-the-cover visage allegedy hurt newstand sales of a mid-February edition of Rolling Stone magazine, Neil Young ignited legions of fans in Charlottesville in April 2001 as the "special guest" opener for Dave Matthews Band. Now, music touring industry magazine Pollstar reports that the September 22 and 23 DMB grand opening concerts at the John Paul Jones Arena (and eight other American shows) will be opened by Robert Randolph & the Family Band, a multi-culti funk/soul quintet heavy on the pedal-steel guitar of the frontman.
