Grateful Dead Alums Plan First Tour In 5 Years
The group, which now just calls itself The Dead, announced its plans Thursday.
Original band members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann have toured sporadically since the 1995 death of guitarist Jerry Garcia, but struggled to get along personally and artistically. They told Rolling Stone in November that they've worked out their differences, aided by a successful October benefit concert in Pennsylvania for then-presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Warren Haynes joins the Dead on lead guitar, and Jeff Chimenti will play keyboards.
