The Dead Summer Tour Will Include 5 Red Rocks Shows and a Co-Bill with the ABB
After providing the overview of its summer tour a number of weeks back, the Dead has finally filled in the details. Following the group’s announced appearance at the Bonnaroo Music Festival, it will travel up to Colorado for five dates at the Red Rocks Amphitheater. Then the Dead will route to the west before closing out the first leg of its tour at the Gorge on July 3 with a co-bill featuring the Allman Brothers Band (it will be another epic day for Warren Haynes given his Dead/ABB dual membership) The second leg picks up at the UMB Bank Ampihteater in St. Louis on July 23 and then heads east, including 2 shows apiece at the Tweeter Center (Mansfield, MA), the Tweeter Waterfront (Camden, NJ), PNC Bank Arts Center (Holmdel, NJ) and Jones Beach Amphitheater (Wantagh, NY) before concluding at the HiFi Buys Amphitheater in Atlanta on August 19. Warren Haynes and Robert Hunter will open all of these shows with acoustic performances (and no, in case you’re curious Hunter will open the Gorge show- no Haynes trifecta that night).
