All four members of The Dead (Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir and Bill Kreutzmann) have agreed to reunite for a tour this April, their first in four years. According to Rolling Stone, the quartet settled their differences in October, as they played a one-off set for a Barack Obama fundraiser at Penn State.
"It broke the ice," Hart told the magazine. "We were able to let some of these skeletons in our closet just fall away."
Guitarist Warren Haynes and keyboardist Jeff Chimenti will round out The Dead lineup—a Jerry Garcia-free variation of The Grateful Dead—as they play nearly 20 gigs between mid-April and mid-May.
