John Mayer & the (remaining) Grateful Dead pair up to tour as Dead & Company for 2nd year in a row, Multiple 2017 Summer Concerts Announced :
Just when you thought the chance for you to see the Grateful Dead live in concert was just about over, the existing band members will be joining forces again with John Mayer to hit the road on tour in the summer of 2017. That is correct; Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann will be onstage with John Mayer and a few other musical superstars to play all your Grateful Dead favorites. The heart of the Grateful Dead band was frontman Jerry Garcia, who unfortunately passed away back in 1995. After the band lost Jerry, it was as if their hearts were ripped out. Fans were emotionally wrecked, but they all carried on. The other band members carried on too with solo careers and stints with other bands. Fast forward to now and you have the closest thing to the original band as you can get. The Dead actually recently played what was supposed to be a 50th Anniversary celebration tour that only consisted of 5 performances. There were not even tickets available to satisfy all the fans, but now as Dead & Company, they have released a nice 2017 summer tour for this year. Other musicians to be joining it a minimum are former Allman Brothers Band bassist Oteil Burbridge and amazing keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, who played with Bob Weir in the band RatDog.
