Its time to travel like the wind because The Dead and Company Tour is about to begin
Its time to travel like the wind because The Dead and Company Tour is about to begin.
Summer officially begins tonight in Las Vegas when the latestest incarnation of our musical obsession hits the stage. This will be "Dead and Company's" third tour and expectations are at an understandable all time high. The first show tommorrow night will certainly satisfy our collective thirst for our fix. It will also answer many of the questions bouncing around the internet. Will Bobby incorporate tunes from his stunning solo record "Blue Mountain" into Dead and Company's setlist? My answer is a resounding yes, the only question is which ones and how many. J.R.A.D covered "Gonesville" and it really was an interesting detour. Also, the fans are clamoring for the band to dive deeper into the Grateful Dead's vast selection of timeless songs and I think they have to. "Dead and Company" has carved out an identity on the long, strange trip that is all their own.
Over the course of their previous two tours each show seemingly got better with each passing performance. There are so many reasons for this, but the short answer is Oteil. He is the straw that stirs this band's drink. Tour starts today and all Dead dreams are attainable. Will they finally play [insert song]? What song will Oteil sing?How many times will Mayer change clothes a night? One thing is for sure, "there is a band out on the highway and they are highstepping into town." Come tomorrow night everybody will be dancing and lives will be changed. The greatest show on earth continues in Sin City tonight. I will see you guys in Boulder. "This song it ain't never going to end". Stay tuned for our written and you-tube recaps from every show from the tour. Tour Dates below! Remember be good family and have a nice show.
