Photo Gallery: Dead And Company @ SPAC, 08/27/2021
Dead & Company took the stage for their seventh show of their Summer Tour 2021 at Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Each show had gotten progressively better as the tour progressed, and tonight was no exception.
When the Grateful Dead played their final concerts a few years back, not everyone was ready to call it quits — Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann put together Dead and Co. to keep their legacy alive. They tapped virtuosos John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti to round out their lineup. The result was glorious…
