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. The result was one of the most successful touring bands of the decade. Since its formation, the band has completed six tours, playing to 3.4 million fans, and has become a record-breaking stadium act. Having toured consistently since its 2015 debut, the band has grossed $255.5 million and sold 2.8 million tickets across 149 reported shows.
Mayer recounts that in 2011 he was listening to Pandora and happened upon the song “”Althea” by the Grateful Dead, and that soon Grateful Dead music was all he would listen to/ In February 2015, while Mayer was guest hosting The Late Late Show, he invited Grateful Dead guitar player Bob Weir to join him in a studio performance. A bond developed between the two, and while Weir and the other three surviving core members of the Grateful Dead were preparing for their 50th anniversary shows, dubbed Fare Thee Well, Mayer began practicing the band’s large catalog of songs. That August, Mayer expressed a particularly strong enthusiasm toward playing with the new band.
The band has released no studio recordings, but all of the concerts from their 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 tours have been (or are being) released on CD, on iTunes, on streaming services and through their Livedead.co website.
