Top Tour Announcements of the Week (8/28/15)
It’s been an exciting week of tour announcements in the music world. Here’s a recap of who we’re most excited to see hit the road.
Dead & Company Winter Tour
It’s been almost two months since Fare Thee Well, the last of the Grateful Dead’s “Core Four” performances together. But since that time Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann have announced a new project together sans Phil Lesh, and including none other than John Mayer. Entitled “Dead & Company,” the foursome will head out this winter for an eight-date tour, plus two nights at Madison Square Garden in NYC for Halloween. Click here for more info.

Underoath Reunion Tour
Earlier this year Christian metalcore band Underoath announced they’d be reuniting for headlining slots at South by So What?! and Self Help Fest.
