Dead & Company Adds West Coast Dates
Dead & Company have expanded their Summer Tour by adding a batch of West Coast dates. The newly added dates begin July 22 in Portland, Oregon and run through a performance at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California July 30 that an announcement mentions is “the final concert of the 2016 tour.”
Six dates have been added in total. After the visit to Portland’s Moda Center on July 22, Dead & Company will play The Gorge in George, Washington on July 23 followed by Irvine Meadows in Irvine, California (July 26), Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, California (July 27), Toyota Amphitheatre in Wheatland, California (July 29) and Shoreline (July 30).
Last year, Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir formed Dead & Company with singer/guitarist John Mayer, Allman Brothers’ bassist Oteil Burbridge and Fare Thee Well/RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti. Following a lengthy Fall Tour and New Year’s Runs last year, the band will hit the road again this summer.
Tickets for the West Coast run go on sale starting Saturday, March 19 with select pre-sales to begin tomorrow.
