Excitement for The Grateful Dead‘s reunion tour has officially begun, as presale tickets for the band’s 2009 tour dates went on sale January 13th.
The band last performed together in the fall for a campaign concert in support of Barack Obama and now Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart are getting set to hit the road again.
The Dead will play 19 shows across the United States beginning April 12th in Greensboro, North Carolina and wrapping up May 10th in Mountain View, California.
Joining the lineup will be guitarist Warren Haynes and keyboard player Jeff Chimenti.
The lineup for this edition of The Dead will be the same one that rocked the house at Penn State last fall at the Obama benefit: The Core Four of Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, joined by guitar monster Warren Haynes and RatDog keyboard ace Jeff Chimenti (both veterans of the 2004 Dead “Wave That Flag” tour). The mood of the band for this Spring Fling is way up, so it’s sure to be a great tour!
