Dead and Company, the immensely popular jam-band offshoot of the Bay Area’s legendary Grateful Dead, is calling it quits.

But, thankfully, not before hitting the road for one more summer tour.

The band — which features Grateful Dead alums Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir as well as John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti — made the announcement via social media on Friday, Sept. 23.

“Word travels fast and we wanted to be the first to let you know that Dead & Company will be hitting the road next summer for what will be our final tour,” the band posted on its twitter page, twitter.com/deadandcompany. “Stay tuned for a full list of dates for what will surely be an exciting, celebratory, and heartfelt last run of shows.”

Not surprisingly, the announcement was immediately met with sad reactions from the band’s loyal fans, who are commonly referred to as Deadheads.

Yet, most of the comments online also conveyed a sense of — appropriately enough — gratitude, for all the music and joy that the bandmembers have delivered over the years.
