On the heels of numerous sold-out shows, Dead & Company are announcing additional U.S. dates. Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir joined forces with singer/guitarist John Mayer to form the band Dead & Company. The band will take the stage at Nationwide Arena on Friday, November 13, 2015 performing two sets of music drawing largely from the Dead’s historic catalog of songs.
“I suggest that everyone put their helmet on; we are going to blast our way into some serious drums and space,” said Bill Kreutzmann. “And with Mayer riding shotgun with Weir — we’re in good company, so to speak.” Mayer will join Hart, Kreutzmann and Weir, Allman Brothers’ bassist Oteil Burbridge and Fare Thee Well and RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti. “I love the Dead’s music; it has inspired me in ways I never imagined. To help carry this music is the honor of a lifetime,” Mayer said.
