Dead & Company have added extra innings to the band’s 2023 The Final Tour with two newly announced shows at Fenway Park and Oracle Park. The pair of concerts will extend previously announced stays at the great American ballparks in Boston and San Francisco, respectively.
The Grateful Dead offshoot featuring Bob Weir, John Mayer, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti will travel to Fenway Park on Saturday, June 24th for a new date ahead of the previously scheduled show in front of the Green Monster on the 25th. The band has also extended its tour-closing and career-closing hometown run at Oracle Park from two nights to three with the addition of a final show on Sunday, July 16th.
Tickets for the newly announced Dead & Company shows at Fenway and Oracle Park go on sale to the general public on Friday at 10 a.m. local time. Fans can register for a Seated Verified Fan Pre-Sale, set to begin on Thursday at 12 p.m. local time.
Next summer will mark the end of Dead & Company’s long, strange trip that began back in the fall of 2015. Since then, the band has become one of the highest-grossing acts in the world as it kept the Grateful Dead flame alive year after year and tour after tour.
Following the band’s return to the stage following the COVID pandemic, however, drummer Bill Kreutzmann suffered a series of health setbacks that kept him off the road sporadically in 2021 and for most of the band’s 2022 summer tour. Dead & Company revealed last month that summer 2023 will see them take their final bows, but with Bobby optimistically noting, “Well it looks like that’s it for this outfit; but don’t worry we will all be out there in one form or another until we drop…”
In a social media post earlier this week, John Mayer stated that he will keep his solo band off the road as he pursues “new projects” in the recording studio.
