The Grateful Dead fueled one of the biggest tours of 2015 when the original members joined forces for the ‘Fare Thee Well’ tour. The band’s offshoot, Dead & Company, has just announced plans to head back on the road the summer, Rolling Stone reports.

Dead & Company, comprised of Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann alongside John Mayer, will launch a summer jaunt on June 10 in Charlotte that will run until July 16 when it wraps in Boston, Massachusetts. The tour will make stops at famous summer venues like Citi Field in Queens, New York, as well as Fenway Park in Boston.

Although Dead & Co. originally planned to just play a few shows last fall at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, the touring fun has since been extended twice. Following a pre-sale this week, Dead & Company tickets are already hitting the resale market, and fans can expect to see numbers rise for the general on-sale on Saturday, February 13.

Currently, tickets for Dead & Co.’s summer tour are averaging $247 for all scheduled performances. The group’s priciest stops include both nights at Fenway Park in Boston, where tickets are averaging $400 for shows on July 15 and 16. The cheapest ticket available for both nights can be purchased for $175. The band will also perform two headlining slots at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee (June 11-14), and four-day passes to the festival are currently averaging $530, with the cheapest pass available for $368.

As it stands, Dead & Company will play their most affordable date on June 21 at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in upstate New York, where resale tickets are averaging $173, with the cheapest ticket priced at $62, according to data provided by TiqIQ.

John Mayer’s addition to the group came shortly after Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio fronted The Grateful Dead’s farewell shows last July. Anastasio’s addition to the group was highly reviewed by Dead fans and critics, and helped fuel a hot summer tour from Phish shortly after. In addition to Dead & Co.’s touring plans, Phish is also scheduled to hit the road this summer for a two month long trek, hitting stops like Chula Vista’s Sleep Train Amphitheatre and Chicago’s Wrigley Field. Wrigley Field parking on ParkWhiz starts for as low as $18. Tickets for Phish officially go on-sale February 25.
