Dead & Company Announces 2017 Summer Tour Dates

peace-496093_1280It’s a summer tradition going back over 40 years.  The surviving members of the Grateful Dead plus John Mayer will be heading out on the road the summer of 2017 at the Dead & CompanyBob Weir, Mickey Heart and Bill Kreutzmann will kick off their summer tour on May 27 in the Las Vegas, NV and will wrap up July 1 for a 2 night show at Wrigley Field in Chicago, IL.  They will also visit Phoenix, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Boston.

Dead & Company’s 2016 tour has them stopping in Detroit, Boston, Portland Charlotte and more.  In 2015, opened their tour with two Halloween concerts in NYC’s Madison Square Garden and concluded with a giant New Year’s Eve show in L.A.  Osteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti joined them on that tour.

Bob Weir told Billboard about his experiences with John Mayer:

“We were playing…and suddenly I was viewing this from about 20 feet behind my head, and I looked over at John from that point of view and it was 20 years later and John was almost fully gray. I looked over at Oteil and his hair was white. I looked over to my left and Jeff’s hair was all gray.” [Then, looking to where he, Hart and Kreutzmann would be playing,]  “it was new guys, younger guys holding forth, doing a great job…playing with fire and aplomb….It changed my whole view of what it is that we’re up to. I find myself wondering, ‘Well, what are they gonna be saying about this new approach or this honoring of this tradition? What are they gonna be saying about that in 200 or 300 years at the Berklee School of music?’ That’s the kind of stuff that goes through my head now because this legacy here, there’s a chance now that they’ll be talking about us in years to come. So I find it incumbent on myself to think in those terms.”
