The trek begins on September 30th in Waterbury, Connecticut's Palace Theater and wraps over two nights — November 4th and 5th — at Denver, Colorado's Mission Ballroom. Along the way, the band will play multi-night stops in Washington, D.C.; San Francisco — performing on Weir's 75th birthday on October 16th; Eugene, Oregon; and Las Vegas.

In addition to Weir, the Wolf Bros' touring ensemble features bassist and longtime Rolling Stones producer Don Was, Dead & Company keyboardist Jeff Chimenti with special guests the Wolfpack with Barry Sless on pedal steel.

When we last caught up with Bob Weir, we asked him about the back-story to one of his classic Dead tunes, the 1977 Terrapin Station standout, "Estimated Prophet": ["It's basically an acid casualty. A guy who took too much acid and has this notion of California and has this notion of this message that he has to give, and stuff like that. And being in the Grateful Dead, we met a number of these kind of folks. They'd introduce themselves, they'd be fascinated by us and what we're up to and, generally speaking, we would figure somewhere in their little cosmology."] SOUNDCUE (:26 OC: . . . their little cosmology)
