Dead & Company Keeping the Dream Alive for Deadheads with Follow-Up 2017 Tour
Dead & Company, the band fronted by John Mayer and featuring three of the original members of the Grateful Dead, have announced another year of touring after their wildly successful 2016 tour.
There hasn’t been an official Grateful Dead concert since the death of guitarist Jerry Garcia in 1995, which led to the dissolution of the band. However, fans new and old have been filling stadiums to listen to Dead & Company keep the original spirit of the band alive. The rise of Dead & Company’s popularity coincided with the celebration of the Grateful Dead’s 50th anniversary in 2015, with the new band representing a modern reappraisal of the original “Deadhead” phenomenon.
The biggest transition for committed Dead fans has been the incorporation of blues-pop star John Mayer, who is about as far from the original Jerry Garcia as you can get in a number of ways. Garcia represented the epitome of psychedelic coolness with his iconic beard, later turning himself into a sort of druggie Santa. Mayer, on the other hand, is all about a flashy stage presence, melodrama and fashion sense, which makes him an odd replacement to fill Garcia’s peculiar shoes.
This contrast hasn’t stopped fans from turning out in record numbers to enjoy the classic Dead feel with a modern twist; so much so that Dead & Company have committed to a massive U.S. tour in 2017. Dead & Company performed their first ever show at Madison Square Garden during October, 2015, which was only a couple of month’s after the Fare Thee Well 50th anniversary concerts that summer. Besides Mayer replacing Garcia on lead guitar and vocals, the new band also features the Dead originals Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, and is completed withkeyboardist Jeff Chimenti andbassist Oteil Burbridge.
The five week tour will be limited to venues in the United States, and begins at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on May 27. From this blockbuster opening they will move on to play stadiums and amphitheaters in a number of various locations all across the nation, closing the tour with twin shows at the end of June at the Wrigley Field in Chicago. There will also be multiple-night stops in Boulder, Colorado and Boston, Massachusetts.
Tickets went on sale for the public on the 9th of December, after four days of a variety of pre-sales. Full ticket and tour information is available on the band’s website.
