Founding Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh have announced their first-ever tour as a duo. They'll be playing NYC, Boston, and Chicago in 2018, doing "back to back sets of both acoustic and electric versions of Grateful Dead classics."

The NYC shows happen March 2 and 3 at Radio City Music Hall. Tickets go on sale Friday (12/15) at 10 AM with a verified fan presale starting Thursday (12/14) at 10 AM. You can sign up for the verified fan presale now. All dates are listed below.

Since Bobby and Phil reunited with Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann for the 50th anniversary Fare Thee Well shows, Bobby has been leading Dead & Company with Mickey and Bill, and Phil has been playing with his various backing bands. The pair crossed paths a few times since Fare Thee Well, including at Sound Summit 2017 and Lockn' 2017.

Bobby also released a new solo album and toured with members of The National.
