Former members of the Grateful Dead Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann formed a group after the death of Gerry Garcia in 1995. They performed in 1998, 2000 and 2002 as The Other Ones and in 2003 changed their name to The Dead. The 2003 lineup included Jimmy Herring, Jeff Chimenti, Rob Barraco, and Joan Osborne. They opened their summer tour in June at the Bonnaroo Festival. For the first time in five years the founding four along with Jeff Chimenti and Warren Haynes are set to start touring this spring, and Razorgator is your connection to purchase tickets to see the reunited group ignite the stage.

Grateful Dead 2015 Tour
5/18/15 - It’s definitely no secret that the Grateful Dead are celebrating their 50th anniversary in a big way. Not only are the reunion shows a hugely anticipated event, but the hype surrounding “Fare Thee Well” has also caused a big surge in the interest around band memorabilia from decades past. An Illinois auction featuring over 700 items that any Deadhead would go nuts over recently reported a theft of over $75,000 in merchandise. Although the owner is upset about the crime, he reports he is more concerned about the preservation of the rare items than prosecuting the criminal. Are you interested to see what interesting posters and other items from the reunion shows will become a part of history? Don’t miss your chance to be a part of it all by purchasing your tickets from us today!
5/13/15 - As the Grateful Dead shows approach, some of the band members are speaking about what they think Jerry Garcia would think about “Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of the Grateful Dead” reunion concerts if he were alive. He was notorious for detesting awards and didn’t like the attention that came along with being a rock and roll star, so many think he may be somewhat hesitant at all the headlines and attention that come along with the event, but ultimately the experience will be all about the music, and that is what he truly loved. Purchase your tickets for this ultimate adventure in psychedelic music from us today! Prices vary, but you can purchase your tickets for the Santa Clara, California show on Saturday, June 27 starting at $81.
5/7/15 - As legendary rockers the Grateful Dead prepare for their five epic reunion shows later this summer, they achieved an equally epic milestone this week. Tuesday marked the 50-year anniversary of the Dead’s first live show ever. On May 5, 1986, they played at Magoo’s Pizza in Menlo Park, CA albeit with a different name. At the time the band went by The Warlocks, but quickly changed their name after discovering that another signed band was already using it. In December of 1965, they had their first official performance as the Grateful Dead. The June 27 and 28 shows in Santa Clara, CA will take place just miles from where the Dead held their first show ever at Magoo’s Pizza back in 1965. Don’t miss it!
4/30/15 - In a recent article from Forbes magazine about the evolution of the music industry, writers credit the Grateful Dead with revolutionizing the music industry by doing what seemed counterintuitive—letting audience members record live jam sessions instead of only allowing them to buy studio produced records.

This summer, Deadheads can recreate the experience of the 1960s and ‘70s and see what unique sounds will come off the stage as the Grateful Dead reunite one final time. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime event! Purchase your tickets for the Soldier Field event in Chicago that begins July 3 starting at $227.
