Dead & Company to Play Fenway Park this Summer
Fenway Park in Boston is going to ROCK this summer!
Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann of the Grateful Dead are back on the road! The project, headed up by Weir, that was only supposed to be 'a few shows' has booked another round of gigs! The original game plan for Dead & Company was to give East Coast Deadheads a chance to say fair thee well to the jam band after their shows at Soldier Field.
Bassest Phil Lesh will not be apart of the lineup, hence why it's not technically a Grateful Dead show. The 75 year-old is battling Bladder Cancer. John Mayer will fill in for the late Jerry Garcia
July 15,16 Dead & Company play Fenway! Tickets go on-sale February 18 at 10AM through Ticketmaster.
Other artists lined up to play at Fenway include James Taylor and Jackson Browne on August 3rd. Pearl Jam August 5 and 7. Finally on August 18 Billy Joel will become the first artist to play the park three years in a row.
