Just a few weeks ago, Bob Weir, guitarist/singer for the Grateful Dead, collapsed on stage during a Furthur concert at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York.

Furthur, which also features John Kadlecik (formerly of Grateful Dead tribute act Dark Star Orchestra) and the Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh, was playing the ninth and final show of their residency at the Capitol when Weir collapsed during the performance of “Unbroken Chain.”

Two days after Weir’s collapse, Furthur closed out their spring tour in Atlantic City. The guitarist was back and according to JamBase “seemed to brush off the incident.”

To accommodate Weir’s recovery, Furthur and Weir canceled their headlining slot at BottleRock Napa Valley Festival in Napa, California.

But Bobby is ready to get back on the road. Weir will open for Bob Dylan this summer at shows in West Palm Beach, Tampa, Atlanta and Nashville. The Grateful Dead guitarist backed and toured with Dylan in 1987, when the Dead backed the poet laureate of rock and roll.

Furthur will return to the Buckeye State to perform at All Good Music Festival in Thornville on Saturday, July 20th. Tickets and more info are available HERE.
