The Dead Keep on Living

Quick on the heels of their successful Fall Run for the Roses comes news that most of what's left of the Grateful Dead will head down the road again when the roses return in 2016.

We expect that the band featuring three surviving Dead members and surprise guitar hotshot John Mayer will make additional appearances at a number of festivals next year. These likely include Bonnaroo, where we have added them as a replacement for Eric Clapton in our prediction post below, Outside Lands, a new and as-yet-unnamed festival in Queens' Flushing Meadows Corona Park the weekend of June 24-26 (not the Panorama Festival there the weekend before), and perhaps the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, which will surely also celebrate the life and work of the late, great Allen Toussaint.
