The Dead are alive and well.
Just this year, 75-year-old founding member Bob Weir has not one but two huge tours planned.
First up, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will “drive that train” with his band The Wolf Bros when they tour all over North America from Feb. 2 through April 30.
On that run of shows, Weir and the Bros will conduct a mini four-show residency at Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre on Feb. 7, Feb. 8, Feb. 10 and Feb. 11.
Then, come summer time, Weir will team up with Dead and Company featuring John Mayer for the group’s high-profile stadium and arena Farewell Tour from May 4 through July 16.
That tour includes two New York stops. First, Weir and his long-running group will play a pair of gigs at Saratoga Springs’ Saratoga Performing Arts Center on June 17 and June 18. Next up, they’ll swing into the Mets’ home field for back to back shows at Flushing’s Citi Field on June 21 and June 22.
Midway through the non-stop touring, the Wolf Bros will join Willie Nelson at his 90th Birthday Celebration on April 29-30 at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowi.
Just one weekend later, Weir will switch over to Dead and Company and headline this year’s New Orleans Jazz Festival from May 4-7.
Clearly, there’s a lot going on for the jam band icon this year.
Even better, some tickets to see him live are available for as low as $31 before fees on Vivid Seats at the time of publication.
All prices are subject to fluctuation.
