Grateful Dead front man and rhythm guitarist Bob Weir has rescheduled a slew of solo acoustic shows originally scheduled for earlier this year, including a stop at Pittsfield’s Colonial Theatre. Originally scheduled to play in August and September, Weir, 64, postponed the majority of his appearances citing “unforeseen circumstances,” as well as a demanding schedule with his current band Furthur, which also features Grateful Dead alum Phil Lesh on bass.
According to Jambase.com all previously issued tickets will be honored. If you can’t make the new date, refunds are available through Dec. 31, 2011, at the original place of purchase. Weir was a founding member of the legendary San Francisco based band the Grateful Dead who split up in 1995 after the death of guitarist Jerry Garcia. He has also led side projects such as Bobby and the Midnites, Kingfish, The Other Ones, and his longtime touring band RatDog.
