Robert Hunter Announces Fall Tour

After spending nearly a decade off the road, Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter is heading out for eight shows this fall. “I began thinking about touring again and started working on my guitar playing,” Hunter said recently. “And the more I played the more I was reminded of the special joy that connecting with an audience brings. And I realized I missed it. It’s time to hit the road.”

Hunter’s live shows have historically been mostly filled with Grateful Dead classics, though sometimes with slightly alternate lyrics and other songs from his catalog amassed over the years. For a sample of what to expect, have a listen to this great soundboard recording from PNC Arts Center, August 10, 2004, when Hunter was opening a dozen shows for The Dead.
