Despite the premature passing of Jerry Garcia, who defined the Grateful Dead for many fans, the band lives on in several iterations under various names. One of the greatest, Dead and Company, just announced its 2019 summer tour schedule, which includes two closing concerts in Boulder.
This version of the band includes Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir, who will be joined by John Mayer (who's gained acclaim for his respectful singing of Garcia's parts), Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti.
The Folsom Field concerts will be on Friday, July 5, and Saturday, July 6.
