On January 19, 1999, Bama Rags/RCA released Live at Luther College: An Acoustic Performance by Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds. Recorded on February 6, 1996, it marked the first album from the pair, who occasionally toured together as an acoustic duo. The second in a series of live Dave Matthews Band-related releases, Live at Luther College debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 and has since been certified Platinum. As with Live at Red Rocks, the success of this second live album was based solely on word-of-mouth buzz.
Matthews and Reynolds launched an extensive tour in January. Dave Matthews Band’s summer run included a stop at Woodstock ’99. The band’s September 11 concert at New Jersey’s Continental Airlines Arena was captured on Listener Supported. Released on November 23, 1999, it was the third installment in the ongoing live album series. A video of the performance, also titled Listener Supported, was released at the same time. The double-disc album was quickly certified double Platinum, and the video also sold over a million copies.
