Dead and Company - Playing in the Sand

Post by Emvibe » Tue Jul 25, 2017 1:09 pm

Dead & Company featuring Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann joined by Oteil Burbridge, Jeff Chimenti and John Mayer have detailed their first shows of 2018. The six-piece has teamed with CID Presents to host a destination event dubbed “Playing In The Sand” that will be held in Riviera Maya, Mexico February 15 – 18.

The band’s three nightly concerts will take place at the event’s host resort The Barceló Maya. The Barceló Maya is one of five all-inclusive resorts attendees can book for the event with The Hard Rock Hotel, Dreams Tulum, Banyan Tree Mayakoba and Rosewood Mayakoba as the others. Each of the five host resorts features a variety of restaurants, multiple bars and daily activities. Festivalgoers have the option of lounging by the pool and beach during the day or can take a more active approach by exploring the nearby historic towns of Tulum and Playa del Carmen. On-site activities include yoga, tequila tastings, bowling and a surfing contest. There are also off-site adventures available.

Dead & Company was formed in 2015 and first toured that fall. The band returned to the road for each of the previous two summers. John Mayer recently discussed the sextet’s incredibly successful Summer Tour 2017 on SiriusXM’s Tales From The Golden Road.

Playing In The Sand 2018 packages go on sale to the general public Thursday, August 3 at 1 p.m. ET. Dead & Company will be inviting their fans to sign up for a presale that will begin on Tuesday, August 1 at 1 p.m. ET. Head to PlayingInTheSand.com for full booking details and more information.

Well, I'm glad we've got a couple of days to think about this, it's a tough choice. Dave and I are already paid up for Mule in Jamaica in January, however our 30th anniversary is February 20th, so we could add a couple of extra nights and make this an anniversary trip. However, I've also heard bad things about these Mayan Riveria multi-resort concerts (specifically Phish), since there's been a mix of concert and non-concert goers at each resort at the past couple of events. Which means all the dress codes are enforced at the restaurants and I heard about some unpleasant conflicts between concert guests and non-concert guests. :?

Did anyone go to Muertos con Queso and can talk about the vibe there?? :think


Add: I will say if you're going, avoid the Hard Rock, it may have improved but it was a nightmare in 2014 for Furthur!! :hand

I love this site.

I was JUST THINKING about where to stay and how the Furthur run was. I want to stay at Hard Rock, cuz it's cheapest, but wow that is awesome that you mentioned what you did, Sue. But I still wanna stay there cuz it's cheaper. haha

At first glance I was like right on...there's my family winter vaca. Then I realized it's a 15 to 20k cost for the 4 of us. Think I'll buy a new van instead lol

I would NEVER be able to afford this overpriced F"ing event

It was hard enough paying for tickets this summer

But.......my love will not fade away
