Dead & Company

June 10th-July 30th

"There is a lot left in this music to explore," Dead and Company drummer Mickey Hart says, explaining why the band – featuring singer-guitarist John Mayer in the Jerry Garcia hot spot – is following its 2015 tour with 24 stadium shows. "People can't wait to get to soundcheck," Hart says. "When that happens, something's right." The band will add 20 classics to the 60 songs in last fall's set lists – including, Hart hopes, 1970's "High Time" and the Nineties ballad "Liberty." Those tunes take "intensive study," the drummer admits. "We're going to crack out the nuggets, not the low-hanging fruit."
