It's certainly no secret that jam bands are in love with visiting South Florida. In fact, it seems like every band with a nouveau-hippie following makes it down here at least once a year, so it's rarely big news. This announcement though, it'll make some fans go weak in the knees. Not one but two of Grateful Dead's (the quintessential jam band no matter what Phish fanatics might argue) founding members are touring together and hitting up the revamped Bayfront Park Amphitheater on February 5. Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, aka Grateful Dead's founding bass player and guitarist, have formed a brand new band called Furthur. They've recruited keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, guitarist John Kadlecik, and drummers Jay Lane and Joe Russo to round out their band. Tickets for the show go on sale December 11 via Live Nation.
Dreamy British singer/songwriter David Gray has also announced a tour that will be making a trip to the Fillmore on April 14. The onetime folk-rocker turned electronic-rocker, turned alterna-rocker is touring in support of his recently released his eighth studio album "Draw the Line" which garnered much critical acclaim and commercial success. Hit the jump to hear what's sure to be a few thousand people's wedding song, courtesy of Mr. Gray. Tickets go on sale December 12 through Ticketmaster.
