Didn’t get a chance to see the Grateful Dead in their heyday? No worries, Dead & Company, the latest iteration of the iconic band, will be touring again this summer. Dead & Company, which includes remaining Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann along with John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge (Allman Brothers), and keyboardist Jeff Chimenti (Ratdog), announced in January a 24-date tour through the U.S.
The tour kicks off May 30 at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Mass. and ends on July. 14 in Boulder, Colo. According to data from TicketIQ.com, the average asking price for tour tickets on the secondary market is $184.56, making it the most expensive Dead & Company ticket since the band started touring in 2015.

Though the band has not released any albums, concerts from 2016 and 2017 are available on CD, through iTunes or on the Livedead.co website.
Among the sites for the Summer Tour are several sports venues, including the New York Mets’ CitiField (June 15-16), Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles (July 7) and University of Colorado’s Folsom Field (July 13-14). Dead & Company will play mostly single dates, though two concerts are schedule for New York City, Wisconsin’s Apple Valley Music Theater (June 22-23), Northern California’s Shoreline Amphitheater (July 2-3) and Boulder’s Folsom Field.
