Dead “FareThee Well” Last Concert Inspires Them to Keep on Truckin’…new Concert Dates Announced !
On the heels of a blockbuster last tour and and final performance in Chicago this past weekend, the Grateful Dead Band, Inc. announced today a worldwide tour of every nation on the globe. Newly installed “Dead” lead singer and guitarist Chad Kroeger, who recently left his band Nickleback, said that the Dead’s international fan base deserved another chance to experience the wonderment of expensive ticketry and musical nirvana at least one more final time.
“The Grateful Dead brand represents the ultimate commercialization of Baby Boomer values,” said Kroeger. “And we certainly want to cash in on that,” he said. The former Nickleback band leader and cult rock idol says he want to his new band in new directions. “We’ll be re-constituting and re-purposing a lot of my old Nickleback greatest hits, slowing them down with a layer of chill, lethargy and insouciance particular to The Dead,” he explained. “It’s gonna be kind of sweet & sour…a umami kinda thing, with long stretches of blissful Dead-like drums hums and numbs, Kroeger said. “Both Nickleback and Dead fans are gonna crush it large for this product, I mean experience.”
