Dead & Company has announced a 31-date summer and fall tour. The jaunt kicks off on August 16th at Raleigh, North Carolina’s Coastal Credit Union Music Park and will play double-night runs in Chicago, Illinois; Mansfield, Massachusetts; and Greenwood Village, Colorado; before wrapping over three nights — October 29th, 30th, and 31st at L.A.’s Hollywood Bowl.

Along with Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann — the band is rounded out with guitarist John Mayer, former-Allman Brothers Band bassist Oteil Burbridge, and longtime RatDog and Dead sideman, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti.

Mickey Hart shed light on the emotions the Dead feels once on stage and in the moment: “It’s magic, y’know? You can’t really describe it, but it’s transformational in nature. I mean, you’re taking a spirit, and you’re changing it into some kind of a form. In this case, it’s vibration — controlled vibration, which we call sound or music. So, that’s the great alchemist’s work, y’know? That’s what we’re doing — we’re taking nothing and turning it into some thing of great beauty. So, that’s the alchemical work. We’re sculpting in sound.”

Bob Weir told us that he still feels as passionate about performing his Grateful Dead songs today as he did when he was on the road with the late-Jerry Garcia: “I love these tunes. I mean, I love ’em as deeply as I love anything. There was a while that I couldn’t even play ’em ’cause I couldn’t, y’know, I couldn’t — emotionally, I wasn’t ready for it. And then I got lonesome enough for ’em, and then, y’know, every time we’d bring out a new one of those old chestnuts, y’know, I’d get plenty misty — and I still do.”
