BOULDER, CO (CelebrityAccess) — Dead & Company wrapped the initial round of dates for their 2018 Summer Tour with a sold-out two-night stand at Folsom Field in Boulder, Colorado.
The performances were the third consecutive two-nighter at Folsom for the band in the past three years and this year’s show saw attendance records set with more than 36,000 fans turning out for the final night.
The tour consisted of 26 concerts in 20 markets, which saw Dead & Co. performing in front of half a million fans to date.
The run included two nights at New York’s Citi Field on June 15th & 16th; a pair of performances to mark the grand re-opening of the Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin on June 22nd and 23rd; and a show at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles on July 7th, which was attended by 30,000 fans despite record heat.
Dead & Company again partnered with HeadCount and Reverb, who traveled with the band to present their “Participation Row” village of nonprofit entities, including March For Our Lives, the movement, and organization started by high-school students who survived the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida. HeadCount also organized voter registrations at Dead & Company summer shows.
Additionally, Dead & Company helped raise more than $1.1 million to benefit Oceana’s mission of protecting and preserving the world’s oceans by performing at a private fundraiser at the home of Keith Addis in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles on Sunday, July 8th. The evening, dubbed “Rock Under the Stars” drew fans from all over the world.
The band’s summer itinerary includes two more shows at the end of the summer (August 25 & 26) when Dead & Co. perform a pair of sets at the LOCKN’ Festival in Arrington Va.
