Following the tremendous success of the band’s 2015 tour, Dead & Company is launching its highly-anticipated 2016 tour on Friday, June 10th in Charlotte, North Carolina, before headlining Bonnaroo 2016 that weekend. The celebrated group’s cross-country run features two nights at Citi Field in New York, a two show Independence Day weekend celebration at Folsom Field in Boulder and two nights at the famous Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin with the tour scheduled to conclude with two shows at Boston’s iconic Fenway Park on Friday, July 15th and Saturday, July 16th.
Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir; singer/guitarist John Mayer; Allman Brothers’ bassist Oteil Burbridge; and “Fare Thee Well” and RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti will perform two sets of music drawing from the Dead’s historic catalog of songs. A full listing of tour dates can be found below.
