Co-founding Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir will be kicking off a month-long string of dates in late-February with his latest solo combo Wolf Bros. In addition to Weir, the lineup is rounded out by legendary producer Don Was on bass and drummer Jay Lane. The 21-date trek kicks off on February 28th at Miami's Fillmore Miami at Jackie Gleason Theater and runs through March 28th when they hit Portland, Maine's State Theatre.
Earlier this year, Weir spoke about his latest ensemble, saying, “This is more fun than a frog in a glass of milk. Don is all over his upright, and Jay needs to somehow be kept in line at times, but it’s all falling together nicely.”
Bob Weir told us that he still feels as passionate about performing his Grateful Dead songs today as he did when he was on the road with the late-Jerry Garcia: “I love these tunes. I mean, I love 'em as deeply as I love anything. There was a while that I couldn't even play 'em 'cause I couldn't, y'know, I couldn't — emotionally, I wasn't ready for it. And then I got lonesome enough for 'em, and then, y'know, every time we'd bring out a new one of those old chestnuts, y'know, I'd get plenty misty — and I still do.”
