Continuing the jam band rush is the actual godfathers of the genre, with Dead & Company announcing a 31-date 2021 tour kicking off Aug. 16, with major outdoor shows including two nights at Wrigley Field in Chicago, one at Citi Field in New York and ending with three nights at the Hollywood Bowl, wrapping Halloween night, Oct. 31.
