While the surviving members of Grateful Dead bid their fans “Fare Thee Well” with a series of epic reunion concerts in summer 2015, it didn’t take long for the Dead to rise again in the form of Dead & Company. The psychedelic supergroup — featuring band members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann along with John Mayer, Allman Brothers’ Oteil Burbridge, and Ratdog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti — has now announced their third tour, a 19-date jaunt that will take them to stadiums and arenas across the US next summer.
The tour kicks off at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 27th. Other notable highlights from the itinerary includes a two-night stand at the Shoreline Amphitheatre that will function as the group’s Bay Area homecoming on June 3rd and 4th, a return to Boston’s Fenway Park on June 17th and 18th, and a pair of shows at Chicago’s Wrigley Field to close out the tour on June 30th and July 1st.
Pre-sales for the summer stops kick off December 5th, while most general on-sales open on December 9th. Check out the band’s official website for more details.
