John Mayer has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 and will have to miss Dead & Company's upcoming shows in Mexico. Stepping in for Mayer will be Tom Hamilton, who has played with Bobby, Oteil, Billy, and even Phil before. Hamilton is also one of the two guitarists in Joe's Russo's Almost Dead. Hamilton from the Philly area will not need help with the band's repertoire and should be ready to go from the opener -- the band is also planning to add some vocal assistance by Margo Price.
Dead and Company returned to California for the first of several shows in the sunshine state on October 27th. The marathon concert took place at the North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre in Chula Vista. The vast outdoor venue is situated in the California desert south and east of San Diego. The location was the perfect backdrop for the multi-million dollar multimedia extravaganza that accompanies a live Dead and Company performance.
For Deadheads across the land, this has been a wonderful week to be in Colorado. Tuesday night, Dead and Company kicked off the first of four Denver Area shows to take place in the Centennial State.

Dead and Company returned to Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio last weekend for a Saturday night show that was one for the books.

To make things better, drummer Mickey Hart was celebrating his 78th birthday that day, and everybody loves a good birthday party.
Shakedown Street is not only the place to find great tie-dyes, it’s also where many of our four legged friends hang-out. What’s it like to be a member of this elite canine group, the Dead Head tour dogs? “It’s grrrrreat”. What could be better than being on tour again, hanging-out, soaking up the scene, scarfing a treat, playing tug-of-war. “This is way more fun than staying home and chasing your tail”.
