Overwhelming Ticket Demand Leads to Second MSG Show for Dead & Company
(UPDATE 8/10/15) Make it two for Dead & Company at Madison Square Garden this fall. Just five days after announcing an October 31 gig at The World’s Most Famous Arena, the newly-formed band consisting of members of The Grateful Dead alongside John Mayer will now play a second show on November 1. The sextet includes former Dead members Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, bassist Oteil Burbridge, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and Mayer, who will take over guitar duties for Trey Anastasio and the late Jerry Garcia.
The second show was added after an overwhelming ticket demand for the Halloween performance in Midtown Manhattan. A special pre-sale for the October 31 show was made available via Ticketmaster to American Express cardholders last Wednesday, and sold out in minutes. Pre-sale for the November 1 gig began Monday, August 10 and inventory continued to rise as fans are flocking to snag tickets. General on-sale begins this Friday, August 14 for both MSG dates.
It's rumored that the band will embark on a short North American tour in the Fall, although no other dates outside of MSG have been announced. Mayer has a history performing with Bob Weir and other Dead member Phil Lesh, who will be busy with his band Phil Lesh & Friends in Port Chester, New York both nights. All three Grateful Dead members are no strangers to the Garden - between 1979 and 1994, the Grateful Dead performed at the arena a whopping 52 times.
Grateful Dead Announce ‘Dead & Company’ Show with John Mayer, Will Play MSG on October 31
Rumors circulated back in April that The Grateful Dead were rehearsing songs with John Mayer. According to jambase.com, it turns out those rumors have turned into an actual show. Announced with a full page ad in the Village Voice on Wednesday, a “Dead & Company” performance will take place October 31 at Madison Square Garden. Three of the “core four” members will be performing. Phil Lesh is the lone exception, as he will be doing his own show, dubbed “Phil Lesh & Friends”, at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester that same night.
Through the ad, it was announced tickets to the MSG gig would go on sale to the general public on Friday, August 14 via Ticketmaster at 10 a.m. ET. In addition to Mayer and the three original members of Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart and Bob Weir, bassist Oteil Burbridge and keyboardist Jeff Chimenti will also be on hand in Midtown Manhattan for the Halloween show.
No additional shows have been confirmed just yet, but it does appear that the group is working on a new website with the domain name deadandcompany.com. The site has yet to go live, though will likely contain more information on the October 31 gig as well as the possibility of more shows later this year.
This won't be the first time Mayer has mixed with members of the Dead. He's been on stage with Phil Lesh during his Phil Lesh & Friends shows. Back in February of 2015, Mayer was one of the guest hosts for CBS' The Late Late Show. On one of the shows the musical guest was Bob Weir. The two played two Grateful Dead songs, "Althea" and "Truckin'."
