The band features four original members of the Grateful Dead, as well as guitarist John Mayer, bassist and vocalist Oteil Burbridge and keys player Jeff Chimenti.
This upcoming tour marks Dead & Company’s seventh tour since the band formed in 2015 with their most recent tour taking place only a few months ago in late 2021.
The tour announcement comes months after the jam band had to cancel their appearance at Playing in the Sand in Cancun, Mexico after surges in COVID cases across the country. The appearance was already set to go ahead without John Mayer after testing positive for COVID-19, and drummer Bill Kreutzmann who sat out of all the band’s January performances due to a heart condition.
In other Dead & Company related news, John Mayer announced last month that he was leaving Columbia Records after 21 years with the label.
In a post to Instagram, he wrote:
“After 21 years, eight studio albums, and some wonderful personal and creative relationships, I have decided not to renew my recording agreement with Columbia Records.
“Hard as it is to say goodbye, I’m excited to pursue new avenues of making music, both of my own and with other artists.”
