Phil Lesh & Bob Weir Announce Duo Tour

Guitarist Bob Weir and bassist Phil Lesh have announced their first ever duo tour. The run of shows will feature the pair of Grateful Dead band mates performing together next March in three U.S. cities.

Weir and Lesh will first team up at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on March 2 and 3. The pair of musicians will then appear in Boston at the Wang Theatre on March 7 and 8. Bobby and Phil will also spend two nights at the Chicago Theatre in Chicago on March 10 and 11.

The tour was revealed earlier today by Weir on SiriusXM’s Tales From the Golden Road program, and he stated guests would likely join the duo. Lesh and Weir performed earlier this year at Terrapin Crossroads and the Lockn’ Festival. The co-founding members of the Grateful Dead also shared the stage together at the Fare Thee Well Concerts in 2015 and in a number of post-1995 lineups of groups featuring them and other member of the legendary group.

A just exactly perfect time to establish Detente, Steve Kimock as special guest.

You know...I routinely complain about being born and now "stuck" in NE but one thing holds true...been blessed with hundreds of bobby / Phil shows. Very lucky in that department

Hotel booked for both NY shows

"We're going to play everything we can think of,” Lesh tells Billboard. “We’’re going to do his stuff, we’re going to do my stuff, we’re going to play Jerry’s stuff, we’ll do Grateful Dead stuff and we’ll do covers. We're going to try and play everything we've ever played together and maybe some new stuff too."

Lesh says performing as a duo and ditching the backing band leaves him and Weir exposed, but says the upside is a singular focus on musically weaving around and through Weir’s improvisational style.

“I can hear him so clearly and is so easy to respond and work through him, it’s really delightful,” Lesh tells
Billboard. “When it's just the two of us, it takes us to a different level because there's nobody else that we have to have to compensate for or work with."

“I think it will be more stimulating than the recent performances we’ve done together.” Less says. "It's just easier to hear and easier to respond to Bob when it's just us two. It heightens the focus on the totality of the music. It becomes an unconscious mental state — just Bobby and I up there reacting to each other and exploring our musical boundaries."
