The sense of closure is no accident: These shows are likely to be the finale for the "core four," as the surviving members are now known: Bob Weir, 67; Phil Lesh, 74; Mickey Hart, 71; and Bill Kreutzmann, 68.
Sounds like Peter Shapiro inked this deal and though we know the band mates will continue to make music with Phil and Friends, Billy and The Kids, Ratdog, and The Micky Hart Band, this might just be it.
Adding Trey brings on a HUGE element because a lot of DeadHeads disk-like the Phish energy that came on tour in early to mid 90's while many others jumped one bands tour for the next, especially after passing of front man Garcia.
Tickets will be available to fan club members on a first-come, first-served basis from Feb. 9th to the 11th. A local public presale will occur Feb. 12-13; a general public on-sale starts Feb. 14.
