Dead & Company was formed in 2015 when Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead 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 after year. Since forming, the band have completed seven tours and became record-breaking stadium performers when they set Wrigley Field’s single-concert attendance record, which still stands to this day. Having toured steadily since their debut in 2015, the band have performed 164 concerts, performed 143 unique songs, and played to nearly four million fans.

Dead & Company has featured 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 nightstands at Madison Square Garden, the Forum , Hollywood Bowl , and Shoreline Amphitheater. Between tours, Dead & Company hosts its annual “Playing in the Sand,” an all-inclusive vacation concert that features multiple nights of Dead & Company on an intimate beach in Mexico.

During all of the band’s legendary Participation Row tours, the Dead & Company community has taken more than 100,000 actions in support of various local non-profit and national social impact organizations and causes, including voter registration with HeadCount and environmental actions with Reverb.

Since 2015, touring efforts 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 that prevented 33,700 tonnes of CO2e from entering the atmosphere, the equivalent of 83.5 million kilometers traveled by petrol cars. Across seven tours, the total raised directly from the band as well as fan auctions and other efforts now stands at over $3 million, providing direct support to nonprofits HeadCount, Reverb and the Dead Family, as well as the non-profit ocean conservation organization. organization Oceana and MusiCares among others.
