The Grateful Dead's Bob Weir Cancels All Upcoming Tour Dates

Douglas Mason/Getty ImagesSome disconcerting news from Bob Weir's camp: The founding Grateful Dead singer/guitarist and his longtime side group, RatDog, have canceled all the scheduled shows on their itinerary.  A message on RatDog's official website, RatDogLive.com, states that "[c]ircumstances have necessitated" the cancellations, without specifying a reason.

Weir and RatDog's upcoming 2014 itinerary had been slated to run from a concert this Thursday in Boston through a September 14 show in Nashville, and was to have included a set this Friday at The Allman Brothers Band's Peach Music Festival in Scranton, Pennsylvania, plus a September 4-5 appearance at the Lockn' Festival in Arrington, Virginia.  Perhaps most troubling is that the group also has nixed its planned Sunshine Daydream fest, which was scheduled for January 19-23, 2015 in Negril, Jamaica.

Many of Weir and RatDog's concerts had been scheduled to feature an opening performance by Chris Robinson Brotherhood.  A couple of upcoming solo shows by Bob also were canceled.

Fans holding tickets for any of Weir's concerts can get a refund at the place of purchase.
