Weir,Mayer....not for me,but i hope you guys have fun!

Fare Thee Well was fun(the show on 7/4 was the best),Phil & friends is generally excellent,Further,i attended for my wife,& Weir's Ratdog & other bands i tend to avoid.John Mayer is skilled & i saw some of his Dead playing on youtube-he's not my thing,particularly for this music.

I don't mind Mayer's playing, but his vocals sound like he is reading nursery rhymes to a small child trying to get them to go to sleep.

Oteil is the only thing that has me interested about this lineup, but let's be honest: The A team just played at Solider Field and this is the B team.

Of course you're right, but this will be a good show and the price looks right. They announced the top tier ticket would be $100 and several seats at $50 in honor of the 50th anniversary ......plus MSG is a pretty good venue.....all that is tempting. We'll see.

what's really interesting to me is that Phil and Friends is playing up the road at the Capitol theatre, the same night. Direct competition in Dead land it seems.

I was guessing that fare thee well was going to be it for Phil. The rest of the guys want to keep on going it seems. Good for them and good for Phil for doing what he's doing.

As far as Mayer goes, I think he's better than people think. He was pretty good at the Levon Helm tribute but he just played guitar no vocals.

from http://ultimateclassicrock.com/john-mayer-grateful-dead-shows/


John Mayer and three members of the Grateful Dead will be playing New York’s Madison Square Garden under the name Dead & Company on Oct. 31.

Turns out, Mayer only recently become a fan of the group.

Mayer tells Billboard that it all started in 2011 when he heard “Althea” on a Pandora station and was immediately struck. From there, he started listening to the Dead on satellite radio. “I feel like my generation also has SiriusXM to thank,” he said. “The Grateful Dead station on Sirius is its own experience, especially if you drive. If you live in Los Angeles, it’s such a brilliant way to score the commute.”

Because he was only 17 when the band broke up following Jerry Garcia‘s 1995 death, Mayer acknowledged that his Dead experience is different from the traditional fan, because he only knows them on a musical level.

“I represent this generation of listener who didn’t go to those shows,” he explained. “There was no sensory bonus for the music. I don’t know how much a T-shirt was or who made the best chili. I don’t have any of that fan show-going experience, so I really discovered the music on a totally pure level. … I didn’t come it from the experience of ‘a friend brought me to a Dead concert in 1987 and I had the time of my life.’ I came at it, like, this music transports me to a place in my own imagination.”

Rumors that Mayer was going to embark on a project with the Grateful Dead first surfaced in April, when he was spotted “in a rehearsal-like setting with select members of the group.” Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann will join Mayer and Allman Brothers bassist Oteil Burbridge for the Halloween concert.

To prepare, Mayer said that he’s been practicing “four to five hours a day. It’s been 15 years since the last time I sat in the room and just tried to get better at playing. It’s what I’ve called Grateful Dead University. It’s like a study abroad — a totally immersive course and a real self-driven scholarship.”

This says a lot to me. MAybe that's why Derek doesn't seem to like him.

Lol I thought I was the only one with this perception.

But I think a lot of the dislike Mayer gets is for the direction he took with his career, but if you look for some of his "pure" material, he's pretty good.
Listen to the tunes he does in Clapton's JJ Cale tribute, to his Trio stuff (what's not to like about a trio wheere Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino are the rhythm section), and him covering American Pie:

I know I'm in the minority here but I prefer Meyer to Trey.

Hmmm ... If the PLQ (Warren,Herring,Molo,Chimenti) is a B team, I'll take the B team any day. It will be interesting how Otiel will fit in with this music/ensemble, I wish him the best. Mayer's voice I believe is gone, but he's a heck of a player. He could bring something to the Dead's music that so far nobody else has done - a rock tone. I'd love to hear one of those House Of Blues treatments of the Dead like they did Clapton, Stones, etc.

I really like Mayer's "Born & Raised" album.

Oteil did a helluva job singing Franklins tower with The ABB.

But probably John and Bob will sing The most
