Dead & Company keep truckin’ on with summer DTE show
Dead & Company, the reconstituted version of the Grateful Dead, is alive and well and heading to DTE Energy Music Theatre.
The group — which pairs Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir with singer and guitarist John Mayer; Allman Brothers’ bassist Oteil Burbridge and “Fare Thee Well” and RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti — will perform at DTE on July 7, promoters announced Monday.
Tickets go on sale through Ticketmaster at 10 a.m. Friday, with pre-sales beginning at 10 a.m. Tuesday.
The DTE date is part of a five-week summer trek that kicks off June 10 in Charlotte and wraps July 16 in Boston. The group is also headlining this year’s Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.
The band’s concerts will see them performing two sets of Grateful Dead songs.
Dead & Company made its debut in October 2015, following the Grateful Dead’s successful series of “Fare Thee Well” concerts in summer 2015.
