LOS ANGELES – The Dead & Company digital concert series will keep on truckin’ on in 2020. The series resumes today (January 10) with the digital release of all three of the January 2019 “Playing In The Sand” shows. They arrive before the third annual “Playing In The Sand” all-inclusive concert vacation in Riviera Cancún, Mexico is scheduled to take place next weekend, January 16-19, 2020.
The 2019 “Playing In The Sand” shows featured over 50 different songs across three nights. All audio is available now through all digital download and streaming services. In addition, the concerts will be offered in Apple Lossless and FLAC formats from Dead.net.
Live audio for these recordings was mixed and remastered by Dead & Company’s Front of House Engineer, Derek Featherstone, and the band’s Recording Engineer, Ross Harris.
Later this year, Rhino will release all 29 of the shows that Dead & Company played in 2019 via digital download and streaming services. Full details will be revealed in the coming weeks. That tour was bookended by two hometown shows in the Bay Area, kicking off May 31 at Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View and finishing up on December 31 at Chase Center in San Francisco.
Dead & Company was formed in 2015 when the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir joined forces with artist and musician John Mayer, Allman Brothers’ bassist Oteil Burbridge, and Fare Thee Well and RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti. The result was one of the most successful touring bands of the decade. Since its formation, the band has completed six tours, playing to more than 2 million fans, and has become a record-breaking stadium act. Having toured consistently since its 2015 debut, the band has grossed $205.5 million and sold 2.18 million tickets across 120 reported shows.
Dead & Company has headlined iconic stadiums across the country including Folsom Field, Autzen Stadium, Citi Field, Fenway Park and Dodger Stadium. Additionally, the band broke Wrigley Field’s all-time concert attendance record.
