Dead & Company’s ‘Final Tour’ stop at Riverbend


Grateful Dead concert at Cornell University, 1977.

This week’s sold-out concert at Riverbend Music Center marked the 2,786th performance (you know, give or take) for the remaining members of The Grateful Dead. Two of the group’s original members – Bob Weir (guitar and vocals) and Mickey Hart (drums) – still tour in the band’s current form: Dead & Company.

This was likely my (and Cincinnati’s) last chance to see them under the Dead & Co. banner, as there are only 16 dates left on what’s been deemed “The Final Tour.” So, I headed to the ‘Bend to witness some history on a Tuesday night.

Set one

After taking in the sights and sounds (and smells) of the traveling Shakedown Street tailgate, the sold-out crowd was packed in and ready for a show.
