David Nelson Band’s Alaska Shows with Bob Weir to be Streamed to Benefit Nelson’s Medical Fund

Last month, David Nelson, guitarist for New Riders of the Purple Sage, announced he has been diagnosed with colon cancer and would be taking some time off the road. Later, his David Nelson Band revealed that Bob Weir would be filling in for his old friend Nelson to front the band for their upcoming Alaska run this weekend, and now, an audio stream of the shows has been announced, benefitting Nelson and his medical fund as he receives treatment for cancer.

The streams, which will cover the second and third nights of the three-night run at The Sitzmark in Girdwood, AK, will start around 10pm AKDT on March 17 and 18. Provided by Radio DNB via, listeners will be encouraged to donate to the “Deadicated Maniacs for David Nelson Fund,” which will help with Nelson’s medical costs.

The stream will be available here, and donations for Nelson are being accepted at David Nelson Band’s website.
