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”.

We're thrilled to announce that the first leg of Dead & Company's 2021 Tour will be streamed live! It all begins with the tour opener in Raleigh on August 16th and culminates with September's double-header at Wrigley Field.

Available to order now are individual shows in 4K or HD, audio bundles, and the 'Unlimited Devotion' livestream pass. With 'Unlimited Devotion' you'll have access to every show on the tour at a discounted rate.
