“Furthur to jam on at Lowell Spinners’ ballpark

“Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh and Bob Weir will bring their new musical project, Furthur, to Massachusetts for a special show this summer. The band will rock Lowell’s LeLacheur Park, home of the Lowell Spinners minor league baseball team, on Wednesday, June 30. General admission tickets for the show are now on sale for $39.50 through

“Fans can expect Lesh and Weir to “furthur” explore some of the Grateful Dead’s most beloved songs with help from an all star band featuring keyboardist Jeff Chimenti (RatDog), percussionist Jay Lane (RatDog), drummer Joe Russo (Benevento – Russo Duo, Trey Anastasio), and guitarist John Kadlecik (Dark Star Orchestra).

The band, who recently performed shows in Amherst and Manchester, New Hampshire, will headline the Nateva music festival in Maine on the 4th of July. The concert will be the third in LeLacheur Park’s 15-year history following shows by the Dropkick Murphy’s and Mighty Mighty Bosstones (2008) and Wilco (2009).

” ‘We are thrilled to welcome Furthur to LeLacheur Park,” said Spinners Vice President and General Manager Tim Bawmann. ‘The Dead are certainly one of the more iconic groups in music history and to have legends like Bob Weir and Phil Lesh come to LeLacheur is a real treat for Lowell.’ “
