PHOENIX – Jam band Dead & Company is bringing its final tour to Phoenix next spring.

The band will play Ak-Chin Pavilion on May 23. Presale begins Thursday at 10 a.m.; general public tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m., concert organizers said.

Frontman Bobby Weir announced this tour will be the band’s last in a social media post last month, hinting it didn’t mean the end of making music.

Formed in 2015 from members of the Grateful Dead – Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart and new faces including John Mayer – the band has toured every year since, even managing to get in three dates before the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in 2020.

The band last played the pavilion at 83rd Avenue near Thomas Road in October 2021.

The Final Tour is scheduled to run May 19-July 2023.
