Dead & Company, featuring Bob Weir and John Mayer, bring the music of the Grateful Dead to life in Bristow, VA

The experience of a Dead & Company concert doesn’t start within the venue when the band takes the stage but instead starts as soon as you pull into the parking lot. The band’s faithful followers pack into the parking lot first thing and you see an array of tie dyed shirts as people fly their Grateful Dead Flags and sell their variety of handmade goods and garments.

Once you get in the venue the fans line up to get the exclusive posters, pins, and shirts which have been a staple of their fandom for quite some time. The band took the stage for their first of two sets early in the night with a start time shortly after 7pm. Dead & Company’s bassist Oteil Burbridge made it back to the tour after an off night and receiving the news that his brother Kofi Burbridge of Tedeschi Trucks Band had just suffered from a heart attack.

Kofi underwent surgery and is currently in recovery. The show is an incredible and unique experience that everyone should get to see at least once. Another beautiful thing about Dead & Company’s show is you will see people from every walk of life and Dead & Company has brought in a whole new younger generation which combines with the Grateful Dead’s longtime fans.

Bob Weir, John Mayer, and the rest of Dead & Company are delivering important music at a time where positive music and good vibes are needed more than ever.
