Dead & Company Recaps Tour Success, Sets Attendance Record for Wrigley Field

first_imgDead & Company wrapped up their biggest tour yet last weekend with two sold-out shows at Wrigley Field in Chicago, IL. Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, veteran Jeff Chimenti, and firmly-welcomed newcomers John Mayer and Oteil Burbridge set the all-time record for most paid tickets for a single concert at the ballpark, drawing more than 80,000 fans across both shows.Dead & Co Closes Summer Tour With Sunshine Daydream Fireworks Spectacle At Wrigley [Videos]The 2017 tour, which lasted from the end of may through the first of July, drew in nearly 500,000 fans and consisted of 20 concerts, 10 of which were sold out shows, in 15 cities, including two-night stands at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Shoreline Amphitheatre in San Francisco, Folsom Field in Boulder, Colo., Fenway Park in Boston, and Wrigley Field–according to a new press release.The Participation Row social action village, which also joined the band at every stop on the tour, featured a rotating cast of 14 different non-profit organizations with direct ties to Dead & Company. $176,930 was raised on behalf of these organizations, via auctions for signed D’Angelico guitars commemorating the tour.Conclusively, more than 20,000 different positive actions were taken by fans on Participation Row throughout the tour. Each fan who took three or more actions was given a limited-edition Dead & Company pin (from Clean Energy Advisors, sponsor of Participation Row).By the Numbers: some of the actions included:– 4,705 Dead & Company fans registered to vote or signed up for local election alerts with HeadCount (co-organizer of Participation Row)– Over 500 fans sent postcards to members of Congress calling for protection of National Parks, with the National Parks Conservation Association– 2,430 gallons of waste was diverted from landfills through a backstage recycling program managed by REVERB (also a co-organizer of the Row)– 2,800 fans made a donation to REVERB for a Nalgene water bottle, reducing single-use plasticDead & Company also shared this artwork on Facebook yesterday, featuring all 104 songs that filled the air.It’s safe to say this was Dead & Company’s best tour yet, and we’re keeping our fingers and toes crossed for more show announcements soon.NOTE: Live For Live Music is not responsible for the sharing of the “New Tour Dates” article from 2015, and we apologize for any inconvenienced feelings the Internet has caused as a result of that.Enjoy the full gallery from the first night of Wrigley Field, courtesy of Keith Griner of Phierce Photo.
