Best final tour ever!!!!!!
It was the experience of a lifetime to do an entire tour. The feeling of going on the open road doing what I love to do with all the time in the world is a good feeling. Going places you’ve never been. Being with thousands of people just like you it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity I just wish I could’ve hopped on the bus sooner but at least I caught this one. Next best thing is Phish (lot wise) but bob weir and wolf bros is really good for Grateful Dead covers. Whenever dead and company plays again DO NOT MISS IT!!!!!! I’m gonna catch them all no matter how far. Enjoy the ride

Dead & Co. Citi Field, Corona, NY
Dead & Company Citi Field, Corona, New York June 22, 2023 Opening with Feel Like A Stranger showed Bob Weir’s voice to be a bit rickety but he was up to the task for Estimated Prophet and American Beauty’s Truckin’. Appropriately wearing a Mets jersey, John Mayer’s guitar came close to Jerry García’s on Cumberland Blues, while bringing to bear his own virtuosity. Their choice of covers is always stellar, with a great take on Merle Haggard’s Mama Tried and Mayer’s brilliant soloing on Traffic’s Dear Mr. Fantasy. Jets flying overhead couldn’t compete with D & Co.’s amplifiers, particularly on Alabama Getaway. A highlight of the second set was a joyous Scarlet Begonias and bassist Oteil Burbridge handled the vocals on Fire On The Mountain. They parted with a poignant Brokedown Palace, a tale of separation and departure, appropriate since this is their farewell tour. The band always attract a beautifully peculiar crowd. D & Co. are as close as anyone can get this side of Heaven to a Grateful Dead show.

Authentic and Magical
It’s the feeling I always want to have at a show. The music touches the soul, inspires, uplifts, brings out emotions. Dead and Co were tight as ever, Every moment was amazing to me, I just loved the set list, the jams, the interactions between the band members, the energy from the audience. I will never forget it. Five easy stars and I would do it all again and again and again
Dead and company final shows at Oracle Park in S.F.
All three nights were excellent shows. I couldn't have asked for better. I'm so glad I made the trip.
❤️🔥 I’m going to miss Dead & Co! Thank you for a good time!

Venue did not live up to the Group
I LOVE the DEAD.....I've seen incarnations of the Grateful Dead over 50 times. I LOVE THE DEAD. Having said that. Saratoga Springs WAY Oversold the Venue and about 3/4 of the crowd could not even see the show. Saratoga performing arts center is a Nice place, BUT, the Issues caused by the overcrowding ruined the show. Do Not go see a "Big Time"band there....The venue cannot support that volume of people. Again, it's a very nice place.....But, avoid it if you actually want to see a "Big time"band. Thanks and Enjoy the Sunshine Daydream.
Great Music but…
We went to all three shows. Great venue; great music; great people except the people who came to the show with COVID !! We are vaccinated & bolstered and are still sick from COVID we caught at the shows. This strain is really nasty— concert goers beware!!
Wonderful band, terrible venue
The venue here is horrible. They pulled apart my whole tiny bag for no reason. Took the cap of my lip balm and smelled it and the lid of my gum? Gross! Unsanitary and the lady searching was power tripping. CDB is legal and I had that in my bag yet she threw it away. I don't know what her problem was but she almost ruined my whole show experience. This was after dealing with hours of horrible and unmanaged traffic that she decided to toss my whole bag for no reason at all. She laughed and just enjoyed her tiny pitiful show of power because she probably has not a shred of it in her real life.

was great show but. no oncore
Nice show .. I have seen 3 other dead and company shows live and some on line nugs.. was great show but the Oracle has many seats that are under a roof and sound is bad.. Also, really poor not to do an oncore.. Not a matter of sound ordinance like Boulder.. Also very little interactions with audience.. like they do not care.. fans care more than they do..
DEAD & COMPANY IN CONCERT:
Deadheads rejoice! The Grateful Dead have been reborn as Dead & Company, delivering all the groovy vibes and extended jams fans know and love. Longtime Dead members Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart are joined by superstar singer/songwriter and accomplished blues guitarist John Mayer as they blend rock, folk, funk, jazz, and psychedelia to blow fans' minds with epic aural bliss. With their spacey instrumental interplay and awe-inspiring solos, the group organically weaves their way through audience favorites like "Truckin'", "Casey Jones", and "Fire on the Mountain". The long, strange trip is back on the road -- Dead & Company are bringing their positive energy and uncanny musical genius to ticket buyers everywhere.
The Grateful Dead were instrumental to the '60s psychedelic sound and hippie culture. Jerry Garcia (guitar/vocals), Bob Weir (guitar/vocals), Phil Lesh (bass/vocals), Bill Kreutzmann (drums), and Ron McKernan (keyboards/vocals) got things rolling in 1965. Excluding McKernan and Garcia, who died in 1973 and 1995 respectively, the core lineup has remained virtually unchanged sinc then. Many other musicians have helped shape the band’s sound as well, especially second drummer Mickey Hart, who joined the Dead in 1967. The band toured excessively throughout the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s, famously playing sets that exceeded the three-hour mark. After Garcia's death the group soldiered on, continuing to build their legacy through fearless sonic exploration. It was not until their 50th anniversary in 2015 that the Grateful Dead decided to retire their name. Fortunately for fans, their retirement was short-lived as pop singer/songwriter and blues guitarist extraordinaire John Mayer brought Weir, Hart, and Kreutzmann back out for more legendary jam sessions. Dead & Company continues in the Dead's spontaneous and inventive musical tradition -- just the way Deadheads like it.
