The Grateful Dead legend Bob Weir returns to the Greek theater.
The singer-guitarist brings one of his current projects – Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros – to the picturesque Berkeley location on July 24th.
As things stand, this date would mark the start of the season for the Greeks – as well as the first concert at the venue since the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought the touring industry to a standstill in early 2020.
Tickets are priced at $ 75 and will go on sale to the general public on June 25 at 10 a.m. on ticketmaster.com. There is also a pre-sale starting on June 23rd at 10am.
The show marks Weir’s return to one of the most famous Grateful Dead venues, where the group reportedly put on 29 shows during their “long strange journey.” The first Grateful Dead performance at this venue took place back in 1967.
The Berkeley date follows a sold out run at the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, as well as two performances at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail earlier this month. These dates were the group’s first live performances since March 2020 in Chicago.
Bobby Weir in the Wolf Bros Band includes Don Was and Jay Lane. The group will be accompanied on this show by Jeff Chimenti on keyboard and Greg Leisz on pedal steel as well as The Wolfpack with Alex Kelly, Brian Switzer, Adam Theis, Mads Tolling and Sheldon Brown.
