Dead & Company Announce Summer Tour

Deadheads have a lot to look forward to in 2018.

Last month, Bob Weir and Phil Lesh announced that—in the spring—they would embark on their first ever tour as a duo, playing back-to-back sets of acoustic and electric versions of Grateful Dead classics. Now, Dead & Company—the Grateful Dead offshoot comprised of Weir, drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, John Mayer, bassist Oteil Burbridge and keyboardist Jeff Chimenti—have announced a summer tour that will take the band to stadiums and amphitheaters across America.
