Dead & Company cancel summer tour, including Atlanta stadium show

Dead & Company have canceled their summer tour due to ongoing fallout from the coronavirus.

The band – always a popular draw in Atlanta – had a July 17 show set for Truist Park.

In a statement to fans, the crew of Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, John Mayer, and Bob Weir, Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti said that all tickets will be full refunded at point of purchase. 

The 17-show tour was slated to kick off July 10 in Colorado.

In a nod to the Grateful Dead’s only Top 10 crossover hit, “Touch of Grey,” Dead & Company signed off with, “We will return. We will get by. We will survive.”
