Dead & Company Returning to Capital Region This Summer
Dead & Company are hitting the road again this summer, and they'll make a return to SPAC in June.
Former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann, along with John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti bring their Dead & Company 2018 Tour to Saratoga Performing Arts Center on June 11 at 7pm. The band formed in 2015 while the surviving members of the Grateful Dead were prepping for a 50th anniversary tour. John Mayer had been guest hosting The Late Late Show in Feb. 2015 and he invited Bob Weir to join him in a studio performance. The two came close friends and the seeds were planted for the project. Dead & Company initially planned one show on Oct. 31, 2015 at Madison Square Garden but would announce a full tour shortly after and they have continued to tour successfully.
