Dead & Company Information
Dead & Company is a band consisting of former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir (guitar), Mickey Hart (drums), and Bill Kreutzmann (drums), along with John Mayer (guitar), Oteil Burbridge (bass/drums), and Jeff Chimenti (keyboards). As of July 2018, the band has released no studio recordings, but all of the concerts from their 2016, 2017 and 2018 tours have been (or are being) released on CD, on iTunes, and through their Livedead.co website.
When Dead & Company played their first festival performance at the 2016 Bonnaroo Music Festival, former Grateful Dead vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux sat in with the band for several songs. She joined the band again for their shows at Citi Field in Flushing, NY on June 25 and 26, 2016, and at Fenway Park in Boston, MA on July 15 and 16, 2016.
On December 1, 2016, Dead & Company officially announced their 2017 Summer Tour. The tour began on May 27, 2017 and wrapped up on July 1, 2017. The tour consisted of 20 shows in 15 cities.
In a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone, Phil Lesh praised the band’s performances, saying “I think they’re doing a great job. They’re bringing the music to the people just like we always wanted to do, and I commend them for it. I hope they’re having a good time. It’s not something I could do myself. I’m done with that kind of touring.”
On September 7, 2017, Dead & Company officially announced their Fall Tour 2017. The tour began on November 12, 2017 and was scheduled to wrap up on December 8, 2017. However, on December 5th, Mayer was hospitalized for an emergency appendectomy, which postponed the New Orleans show that night. Dead & Company subsequently postponed the remaining tour dates, rescheduling them in February, following several independent shows in Mexico. The Fall Tour consisted of 16 shows in 14 cities. On 30th May, 2018, the band began their 2018 summer tour, originally set to end on July 14th but extended to include two shows at the Lockn’ Festival on August 25 and 26.
The Dead & Company Summer Tour 2018 is a concert tour by the rock band Dead & Company during May, June, and July 2018. It is the band’s fifth tour, following their 2017 Fall Tour (which overflowed into 2018 after several shows were postponed when John Mayer had an emergency appendectomy). The tour comprises a total of 24 concerts in 19 different cities between May 30 and July 14, 2018.
Prior to the 2018 Summer Tour, in addition to the three rescheduled dates from the 2017 Fall tour, the band performed three shows — February 15, 17 and 18 — at the Barceló Maya resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The event, billed as a “concert vacation”, was called Playing In The Sand (a pun on the Grateful Dead song “Playing in the Band”). They will wrap up the summer tour with a two-night stop at the Lockn’ Festival. The band Dead & Company includes three former members of the Grateful Dead – Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart – along with Mayer, Jeff Chimenti, and Oteil Burbridge.
