Dead & Company to play at Citi Field June 25 & 26
FLUSHING, N.Y. -- The New York Mets and Live Nation announced that Dead & Company will perform at Citi Field Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26. Tickets go on sale to the general public Saturday, February 13 at 10:00 a.m. at mets.com/DeadandCompany.
Dead & Company grew out of last summer's hugely successful Grateful Dead farewell concerts, dubbed Fare Thee Well. Those shows featured original band members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzman, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, along with musical guests Trey Anastasio of Phish and singer/keyboardist Bruce Hornsby. Just weeks later, Dead & Company announced a fall tour, with a new lineup featuring singer and guitarist John Mayer, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and Otiel Burbridge, formerly of the Allman Brothers Band. Dead & Company played 19 shows through New Year's Eve, offering a set laden with Grateful Dead standards and a few choice covers.
