Dead & Company, the ensemble of Grateful Dead members and other top musicians will kick off a fall tour Nov. 12 at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
The announcement from former Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann comes on the heels of a successful summer tour. The trio is being joined by Allman Brothers’ bassist Oteil Burbridge, singer-guitarist John Mayer and FareTheeWell/RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti. They will play a second show at MSG Nov. 14 before crisscrossing the East Coast, Midwest, South and southwest portions of the country.
Dead & Company was formed in 2015. The group draws from Dead songs and is “taking the iconic music catalogue to new heights,” a statement from the band’s representatives said.
