RatDog to hit eastern U.S. in month-long theater trek
The Bob Weir-helmed rock act RatDog has unleashed a late winter run that canvases the eastern U.S. over a month's time.
The outfit -- comprised of former Grateful Dead co-founder/guitarist Weir, bassist Rob Wasserman, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, guitarist Steve Kimock, drummer Jay Lane and bassist Robin Sylvester -- will kick off the outing with a two-night stand Feb. 14-15 in Upper Darby, PA. Another 17 major markets follow, wrapping up March 16 in Atlanta.
RatDog will release a new live collection entitled "Fall 1989: The Long Island Sounds." The set, which currently has no official drop date, features two full concerts with Weir, Wasserman and the Jerry Garcia Band -- one Sept. 5, 1989, at Hartford Civic Center and another Sept. 6, 1989, at Nassau Coliseum.
