They’re back and ready to start their 2017 tour.
With original members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, and newer members including John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti coming together to make a similar sound to the original Grateful Dead, while making it their own. This will be their second summer tour with 2016 being their first. They’re making their way back to the Bay Area at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View on June 3rd, and June 4th 7:00 p.m. for both days. Tickets have been on sale and start as low as $53 on the lawn, and go up to thousands of dollars to be down in the front close to the band.
With Weir and Mayer on vocals singing both Weir and Jerry Garcia songs, humbled Mayer steps into this opportunity once more to continue on the legacy of the Grateful Dead with other members and some new members joining in.
With lively songs and feel good vibes, coming back home to the Bay Area where members of the original Grateful Dead got their start. Also, being the start of the summer, school is out, temperature is hotter, what a good way to welcome the season with a Dead and Company concert.
