Dead & Company With John Mayer Announce Summer Tour Dates
Tickets go on sale Jan. 26 for a 19-city summer tour of Dead & Company, bringing together former Grateful Dead members, John Mayer and more for a tour this summer. These legendary musicians will be live beginning on May 30 in Mansfield, Mass. and continuing through both coasts and the Midwest to its last date on July 14 in Boulder, Colo.
For John Mayer, playing with these legends enhances the credit he continues to amass toward furthering his prowess as a master guitarist, an ambition he has confessed since 2010. The only thing that has been able to stop him from going on with the show was having to get his appendix taken out last December.
Founding Grateful Dead members, singer/songwriter and guitarist Bob Weir and singer and bass player Phil Lesh recently announced 6 tour dates in March. While Phil Lesh is not a member of Dead & Company and will not be there, other Grateful Dead members in the band are drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann. Their line-up also includes keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and the bass-playing multi-instrumentalist and GRAMMY winner Oteil Burbridge.
