Dead and Company

Dead & Company 

With the first chords of “Bertha,” Dead & Company broke a 15-year silence at Folsom Field.

The band — three former Grateful Dead members, John Mayer and friends — played the first concerts at CU Boulder’s football stadium since 2001, when a long, loud Dave Matthews Band show prompted the years-long pause. 

In all, more than 50,000 people attended Dead & Company performances at Folsom July 2 and 3. Bob Weir (front right), Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann (both rear) of Dead & Company are all former members of the Grateful Dead.
