Legendary Gratful Deal guitarist and founder Bob Weir comes to Orpheum Theater – Omaha on Sunday 15th March 2020 for a night of songs from his long and varied career! Weir will be joined by Wolf Bros (aka legendary funk-rock performer Don Was and RatDog/Primus drummer Jay Lane), who he first began performing with in 2019, for a night of “the songs of Grateful Dead and more!” The trio make a great team, bringing a varied and exciting spin to so many of the tunes Weir has played and written over the years, and they make a natural fit and a must-see act for all Weir fans!
“This is more fun than a frog in a glass of milk,” Weir said in a press statement, “Don is all over his upright, and Jay needs to somehow be kept in line at times, but it’s all falling together nicely.”
