Dead & Company have announced a return to the road by detailing an extensive 2018 Summer Tour. The band featuring Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart along with Oteil Burbridge, Jeff Chimenti and John Mayer will head out this May and continue with shows in June and July.
Dead & Company had to cancel their remaining three shows last year when Mayer underwent an emergency appendectomy. Those shows were rescheduled for this February, following the group’s destination event in Riviera Maya, Mexico taking place earlier that month.
The 2018 D&C Summer Tour will embark on May 30 in Mansfield, Massachusetts. The band then plays two shows in Camden, New Jersey on June 1 and 2. That month will also see Dead & Company appearing in Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Raleigh, Saratoga Springs, Hartford, New Yor City (two shows), Darien Lake and Cuyahoga Falls. Alpine Valley in East Troy, Wisconsin will welcome Dead & Company for shows on June 22 and 23 and then the band heads west to the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington before heading to Eugene, Oregon to round out the month.
July will find the band back on the Grateful Dead’s home turf for two nights at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Moutain View, California on July 2 and 3. The Summer Tour continues in Chula Vista, Los Angeles and Albuquerque, with a final two-night stand at Folsom Field in Boulder, Colorado.

Do you wanna get rocked? Well, if you live in North America, you’re about to because Def Leppard have just announced they’ll be teaming up with Journey for an exhaustive 58-day tour starting in late May.
The tour is reminiscent of 2006 when both bands united for a co-headlining North American trek and for those looking to relive that experience, you’re in luck. The run kicks off on May 21 in Hartford, Conn. and will wrap up on Oct. 6 in Los Angeles, featuring small breaks in the daunting schedule to afford the groups some rest. Check out all the stops below and look for tickets to go on sale on Feb. 3.
There’s doubly good news for Def Lep fans as the band’s entire catalog has finally arrived at all official streaming platforms and is available for digital download as well. “It is with a mixture of relief and euphoria that we now see our entire catalog finally getting a digital release. Having embraced every other format with open arms, especially & more recently the reemergence of vinyl, we’re now going to be available to everyone everywhere and honestly, it’s as exciting as the original releases were,” comments Joe Elliott.
