The highly-anticipated 2023 summer tour, produced by Live Nation, will be the band’s final tour since forming in 2015. Highlights include the tour-opening back-to-back concerts at the KIA Forum in Los Angeles (Friday, May 19 & Saturday, May 20), as well as doubleheaders at Wrigley Field in Chicago (Friday, June 9 & Saturday, June 10); Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY (Saturday, June 17 & Sunday, June 18); Citi Field in NYC (Wednesday, June 21 & Thursday, June 22); and The Gorge in George, WA (Friday, July 7 & Saturday, July 8); an epic return to Fenway Park in Boston, MA (Sunday, June 25); the band’s first-ever three-night stand at Folsom Field in Boulder, CO (Saturday, July 1, Sunday, July 2, & Monday, July 3); and the tour finale – a two-night debut at Oracle Park in San Francisco (Friday, July 14 & Saturday, July 15). A full listing of the 2023 tour dates can be found below.
To ensure that tickets get directly into the hands of fans, advance presale registration is now available powered by Seated. The Artist Presale begins Wednesday, October 12th at noon local venue time and runs through Thursday, October 13 at 10 PM local venue time. Advance registration does not guarantee tickets. Supplies are limited.
Dead & Company and Activist will continue their work with longtime sustainability partner REVERB to reduce the summer tour’s environmental footprint and engage fans to take action for people and the planet.
Dead & Company was formed in 2015 when the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir joined forces with artist and musician John Mayer, Allman Brothers’ bassist Oteil Burbridge, and Fare Thee Well and RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, and quickly became one of the most successful touring bands year over year. Since its formation, the band has completed seven tours and became a record-breaking stadium act when it set Wrigley Field’s all-time concert attendance for a single concert, which still holds to this day. Having toured consistently since its 2015 debut, the band has held 164 concerts, performed 143 unique songs and has played to nearly four million fans.
Dead & Company has headlined iconic stadiums across the country including Fenway Park, Citi Field, Gillette Stadium, Folsom Field, Dodger Stadium, Wrigley Field, and Autzen Stadium, as well as multiple night-stands at Madison Square Garden, the Forum, Hollywood Bowl, and Shoreline Amphitheatre. Between tours, Dead & Company hosts its annual “Playing in the Sand,” an all-inclusive concert vacation that features multiple nights of Dead & Company on an intimate beach in Mexico.
Across all tours at the band’s legendary Participation Row, the Dead & Company community has taken more than 100,000 actions in support of various local non-profits and national social impact organizations and causes including voter registration with HeadCount and environmental actions with Reverb.
Since 2015, efforts on tour have eliminated the use of 100,000 single-use plastic water bottles at shows and raised funds to support climate justice and carbon reduction projects which prevented 33,700 tonnes of CO2e from entering the atmosphere, the equivalent of 83.5 million miles driven by gas-powered cars. Throughout the seven tours the total raised directly from the band as well as fan auctions and other efforts is now over $3 million, providing direct support to HeadCount, Reverb and the Dead Family non-profit organizations, as well as the non-profit ocean conservation organization Oceana and MusiCares among others.
