Dead & Company
Sorry to report Dead and Company have now cancelled their upcoming shows in Mexico. With the recent news John Mayer has contracted Covid-19 and Billy Kreutzmann staying home to rest up it seemed almost inevitable the shows might not happen.
Now we'll standby until we get some updates on how John and Billy are doing and hopefully some big summer tour news in the coming weeks.
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.
Oteil Burbridge, two-time Grammy Award-winning bassist of The Allman Brothers and Dead & Company, has officially launched Join the Ozone, a new education app that includes monthly LIVE calls with Oteil, pre-recorded courses including: 6 Levels of Harmony training, Rhythm and Philosophy training, never before heard stories, tips and tricks on surviving on the road, and so much more.
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. Originally scheduled as just two performances at Fiddler’s Green in Englewood, the band announced mid-September that they were adding two more shows at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
Dead & Company debuted at No. 1 as Pollstar’s HOT SHOT artist of the week with a ticket average of 21,934 from the first 11 concerts on the supergroup’s 2021 tour. The tour kicked off on August 16th with a sold-out show in Raleigh, North Carolina, and runs through Halloween with a three-night sold-out stand at the Hollywood Bowl (October 29th, 30th, & 31st).
Dead and Company returned to Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio last weekend for a Saturday night show that was one for the books. Great weather, perfect music, and a welcoming and happy crowd were just the right ingredients to make the perfect cocktail of a concert. 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”.
