“At the risk of rocking any boats — known and unknown — we’ll see you next year,” John Mayer told a Los Angeles crowd in the final moments of Dead & Company’s tour-closing show on New Year’s Eve. The Grateful Dead spin-off — which includes founding members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann — was announced as a Bonnaroo headliner in January and now has made good on Mayer’s claims by confirming a summer tour.

The 18-date trek begins June 9 at Bonnaroo and wraps July 16 in Boston. Deadheads who couldn’t make it to the previous tour will rejoice: Other than two shows at New York’s Citi Field, the band will hit a completely fresh slate of cities that includes Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and Detroit. The Bonnaroo date is notable news in itself, considering the festival had not yet announced specific dates for acts on the festival’s bill.

Dead & Company also announced that it will make its late-night debut on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Feb. 18, though fans will recall that Mayer and Weir jammed together when the former served as a Late Late Show guest host in early 2015.

The Core Four members of the Grateful Dead performed their final shows together last July at Chicago’s Solider Field; founding bassist Phil Lesh is not a part of Dead & Company.
