, Staff

Following their successful fall tour, former Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh & Bob Weir  will continue their musical adventure with their band Furthur this spring. The band will hit Massachusetts with a three-night stand at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston from March 4 though 6. Tickets for the each of the shows are now on sale and can be purchased for $59.50 through Ticketmaster.

Fans, new and old, can expect Lesh and Weir to “furthur” explore some of the Grateful Dead’s classic songs with help from an all star band featuring keyboardist Jeff Chimenti (Rat Dog), drummer Joe Russo (Benevento – Russo Duo, Trey Anastasio), and guitarist John Kadlecik (Dark Star Orchestra) and vocalists Sunshine Becker and Jeff Pehrson.

The group toured extensively in 2010, making numerous stops throughout New England, including Worcester’s DCU Center and Lowell’s LeLacheur Park, as well as a headlining slot at the Nateva Music & Camping Festival in Maine.
