Dead & Company have announced the dates and venues for their final tour, set to run from mid-May to mid-July of 2023. The Grateful Dead offshoot featuring Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti previously revealed that the 2023 outing will be the last for this outfit, which formed in 2015.
Dead & Company’s last ride will kick off on May 19th and 20th at Los Angeles, CA’s Kia Forum. The group will continue on from there to amphitheaters in Phoenix, AZ (5/23); Dallas, TX (5/26); Atlanta, GA (5/28); Charlotte, NC (5/30); Raleigh, NC (6/1); Bristow, VA (6/3); Burgettstown, PA (6/5); and St Louis, MO (6/7). On Friday, June 9th and Saturday, June 10th, Dead & Company will pay their last visit to Chicago, IL’s Wrigley Field before moving along to Cincinnati, OH’s Riverbend Music Center (6/13) and Philadelphia, PA’s Citizens Bank Park (6/15).
Following two-night runs at Saratoga Springs, NY’s Saratoga Performing Arts Center (6/17, 6/18) and New York, NY’s Citi Field (6/21, 6/22), the East Coast portion of the tour will wrap up with shows at Fenway Park in Boston, MA (6/25) and Ruoff Music Center (formerly known as Deer Creek) in Noblesville, IN (6/27). Dead & Company will then head west once again for a three-night run at Boulder, CO’s Folsom Field over Independence Day weekend (7/1, 7/2, 7/3) and a two-night stand at The Gorge in George, WA (7/7, 7/8) before wrapping up The Final Tour in the Grateful Dead motherland with their first-ever shows at San Francisco’s Oracle Park.
Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann, the three Dead & Company members who also played in the Grateful Dead, weighed in on the end of this chapter when the finality of the 2023 tour was confirmed.
“I want you to know that this has all been because of you,” Hart said in a post about the final run of Dead & Co shows. “When we saw what Fare Thee Well meant to all of you, and how good it felt to be back together, we knew there was a chance for a second life, another dance around the sun. Little did I know the life [Dead & Company] would have. I’m so looking forward to the festivities that lie ahead. This tour will be one for the books.”
“The Grateful Dead always felt timeless from our very beginnings at the Acid Tests where “time” did some funny things so we left it behind altogether,” added Kreutzmann in a post of his own. “This music will always exist, always evolve, always be the soundtrack of our ever changing lives. But the form changes. It always has, from when we invited Mickey to join the band to the many shapes and forms it took after Jerry [Garcia] left us. And so it’s almost time for another change. I have loved this chapter with Dead & Company, as we got to explore The Music with some new interpreters and different antennas, but we always knew it was just a chapter. The Music never stops.”
Weir cut right to the chase in expressing the same sentiments in his comment: “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.”
