Dead And Company Confirm Las Vegas Gig

For the Grateful Dead offshoot, Dead & Company’s “final tour” will not be the end of the road, as the John Mayer-featured group will reconvene this spring for a lengthy residency at Las Vegas’ Sphere.

Featuring iconic Dead musicians Bob Weir, Mickey Hart alongside contemporary pop star Mayer, bassist Oteil Burbridge, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, and drummer Jay Lane, Dead and Company were rumored to be end their brief retirement to take over for U2 (after Phish,) at the cutting-edge Las Vegas venue. After weeks of speculation, the classic rockers took to social media on Wednesday (1.31) with the Grateful Dead’s classic “Steal Your Face” logo projected on the massive Sphere, to tease their plans.

If truth be told, Dead and Company didn’t fib about last year’s“final tour” trek since they’re technically going to be “residing” instead of “touring,” as they explained in the teaser.

“In 2023, Dead & Company played their final tour.” “But there are other ways to make sure the music never stops.” “It’s gonna be a ball.”

While no dates have yet to be announced, Rolling Stone has confirmed that band will play at least 15 shows at the Sphere.
