Bob Weir & Ratdog Performance
Bob Weir, a rock legend and one of the founding fathers of Grateful Dead, has once again started touring the US with RatDog, another band he both founded and played in back in 1995. They started their summer tour on July 5th and will go on until September 6th. The band exemplifies their reputation as big rock artists booking their shows all the way through September.
In 1965 the band Grateful Dead was formed, and performed numerous concerts every year up until 1995, racking up a total of 2300 live concerts throughout their long career. Then in 1995, Bob Weir founded the band Ratdog and went on to create two hit albums in 2000 and 2001 called, Evening Moods and Live at Roseland. Bob Weir has performed songs from a repertoire of artists such as Bob Dylan, the Beatles, The Band, and the Rolling Stones, and he will continue his success with Ratdog with their 22 headlining tour performances this Spring.
Bob Weir seems to love what he does and he is quite good at it. “When I was a kid, like 8 or 9 years old, my brother taught me how to tune a radio and that was it for me. I knew I wasn’t going to be a fireman or an Indian chief…I was going to be a musician.” You can definitely tell he puts a lot of heart into his music, and that is probably what has kept him going all of these years.
On September 4, 2009, they will be performing at Humphrey’s Concerts-By-the-Bay. If they haven’t sold out yet, you should definitely go to their performance. Don’t miss out; it’s going to be amazing!
