Bob Weir and Phil Lesh, two of the original Grateful Dead members, have announced their first-ever joint tour. Billed as the Bobby and Phil Tour, the duo promise back-to-back acoustic and electric sets spanning their five-decade musical partnership.
"We're going to do his stuff, we're going to do my stuff, we're going to play Jerry [Garcia]'s stuff, we'll do Grateful Dead stuff and we'll do covers," Lesh told Billboard. "We're going to try and play everything we've ever played together and maybe some new stuff too."
The tour is currently scheduled to make stops in New York City, Boston, and Chicago. Following the Radio City debut on March 2nd and 3rd, Weir and Lesh bring the show to Boston's Wang Theatre on March 7th and 8th before closing out in Chicago a few days later.
Deadheads can register for a Ticketmaster pre-sale, while general tickets go on sale Friday, December 15th at 10 AM local time.
