Last January, Dead & Company performed three shows at the Moon Palace resort in Cancún, Mexico. The rest of the band’s 2020 dates – including a 17-date Summer Tour – were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In related Dead & Company news, John Mayer shared a brief update yesterday on his hotly anticipated eighth studio album yesterday, assuring fans “It’ll fire up very soon.”
It’s uncertain whether Dead & Company’s touring plans will intervene with the release of the record, as it did back in 2016, when Mayer postponed The Search For Everything to tour with the all-star jam band.
“I put the [solo] record aside last April , I would say, and just started wanting to learn all this [Grateful Dead] music,” Mayer told the Sacramento Bee in 2016.
