Dead & Company Announce Summer 2020 U.S. Tour
Dead & Company, the Grateful Dead offshoot led by founding member and former guitarist Bob Weir and seven-time GRAMMY winner John Mayer, have announced a U.S. tour set for this summer. The 17-date trek, which kicks July 10 in Boulder, Colo., and ends Aug. 8 in Boston, Mass., will take the iconic psychedelic rock band to major stadiums and amphitheaters across the nation.
Ahead of the summer 2020 tour, Dead & Company will headline the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival this May. The upcoming trek follows the band's busy 2019, which saw the group touring the U.S. last summer
Originally formed in 2015, Dead & Company is composed of former Grateful Dead members Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, along with Mayer. The group also features Allman Brothers Band bassist and The Aquarium Rescue Unit founding member Oteil Burbridge as well as renowned keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, who's worked with various Grateful Dead spin-off groups, including Weir's RatDog.
Tickets for Dead & Company's summer 2020 U.S. tour go on sale Friday, Feb. 14, at 10 a.m. local time. For more information and for the full tour routing, visit the band's official website.
