Bob Weir adds new tour dates with Campfire Band

Bob Weir & The Campfire Band have confirmed new April tour dates making stops in Dallas, Austin, New Orleans and Mobile. The Campfire Band is comprised of Weir, Aaron Dessner, Bryan Devendorf, Scott Devendorf, Josh Kaufman, Steve Kimock and Jon Shaw. VIP packages are available and every online ticket order comes with one (1) physical CD of Weir’s newest album Blue Mountain. See below for full dates and visit HERE for further ticketing information.

The album is out now to critical acclaim via Columbia/Legacy and ROAR, which Weir supported with his eight-city “Campfire Tour” last fall. During that time, he and his band made appearances on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “CBS This Morning: Saturday.” Weir also received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association.

Blue Mountain is Weir’s first solo record in ten years and his first album of entirely original material in thirty years. Producer Josh Kaufman partnered with Weir on the album, which features songwriting collaboration with Josh Ritter and performances from guitarists Aaron Dessner and Bryce Dessner and bassist Scott Devendorf.

Drawing on his earlier experiences working on a ranch in Wyoming as a teenager, Weir joined with Ritter, the Dessners, Devendorf and Kaufman to celebrate those times with twelve new songs.

The album was recorded at a variety of locations on both coasts, including studios in Woodstock, NY and San Rafael, CA over the spring and fall of 2015. A host of fellow musicians appear alongside Weir on Blue Mountain including Ray Rizzo (drums, harmonium, harmonica, backup vocals), Joe Russo (drums), Jon Shaw (upright bass, piano), Rob Burger (keyboard, accordion, tuned percussion), Sam Cohen (electric guitar and pedal steel), Nate Martinez (guitars, harmonium, backup vocals), Jay Lane (drums, vocals), Robin Sylvester (upright bass, vocals, hammond organ) and Steve Kimock (Lapsteel). Providing backup vocals are The Bandana Splits, comprised of Annie Nero, Lauren Balthrop and Dawn Landes. Kaufman produced the record with engineering by Dan Goodwin.
