Radio station celebrates Dave Matthews' return to Chicago: With cruise retracing sewage spew

From NBC 5 Chicago.

A boatload of radio contest winners on Friday retraced the voyage of an ill-fated tourist boat that got an unexpected surprise from a rock band's tour bus.

Last August, waste tanks from the tour bus of the Dave Matthews Band were emptied out as it was crossing a bridge over the Chicago River, dumping the contents on the passengers of a passing tour boat. The Dave Matthews Band made a gift to the Friends of the Chicago River to make up for the incident. The bus driver pleaded guilty and was fined.


A Dave Matthews Band tribute band, The Tripping Billies, performed on a Wendella boat Friday. The radio show and performance was all a part to promote the Dave Matthews Band show this weekend.
