Dead and Company Announce 2019 U.S. Tour
Dead & Company, the Grateful Dead offshoot band featuring three of the band's four surviving members, as well as John Mayer, will be hitting the road next summer.
They announced plans to play 19 shows at amphitheaters and stadiums in 14 U.S. cities, starting on May 31 with the first of two nights at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif., and conclude with two nights at Folsom Field in Boulder, Colo., on July 5 and 6.
Tickets for all dates, which can be seen below, go on sale Dec. 8 at 10AM local time. The band is encouraging fans to register for Ticketmaster's Verified Fan program for tickets. Depending on the venue, there will be various pre-sales, including those for American Express and Citi cardholders, in the days leading up to the general public sale. You can get full information on the band's website.
This will be their sixth tour following Dead & Company's 2015 formation following the Grateful Dead's Fare Thee Well concerts that featured original members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, plus Mayer.
Dead bassist Phil Lesh declined to participate in the newly formed group, so former Allman Brothers Band bassist Oteil Burbridge was recruited. The sextet is rounded out by Jeff Chimenti, who's played with Weir's band RatDog and was performed on Fare Thee Well dates.
