Warfield Marquee - Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros

The bus is going to be coming in hot next week as Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros return to the longtime Dead-favorite stage of The Warfield for three concerts Friday through Sunday – with Sunday’s final show coming on Weir’s 75th birthday. Tickets are still available as of this writing and can be found here: Friday, Saturday, Sunday.

Debuting up the street at a Union Square fundraiser in 2018 as a stripped-down trio with Weir, drummer Jay Lane (RatDog, Primus) and bassist/producer/record label CEO Don Was, the Wolf Bros expanded with keyboardist Jeff Chimenti (RatDog, Dead & Company) and pedal steel virtuoso Greg Leisz in 2020. The end of the pandemic’s live music shutdown saw the group reemerge having added “The Wolfpack” - a string and horn section. The larger ensemble will take the stage at The Warfield.

Raised in the South Bay and a longtime resident of Marin County, Weir comes home to celebrate his 75th in great shape (as shown in his popular Instagram workout posts) and at perhaps the most productive time in his career. Prior to the San Francisco shows, he and the Wolf Bros donned tuxedos to perform four nights with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC. Additionally, the band recently released two albums focused on four 2021 concerts with “Live in Colorado Volumes I and II.” Of course, Weir’s other gig, stadium-headlining Dead & Company, just announced that their 2023 summer tour will be the group’s last – ending with two July concerts a few miles away at SF’s Oracle Park. After a brief respite following The Warfield shows, Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros will head back out on the road and continue touring into November.

The sparser core configuration of Weir & Wolf Bros (Dead songs with only 1 guitarist and 1 drummer??) creates more space for special guests. They’ve been joined on stage by Billy Strings, Tyler Childers, Margo Price, Wynonna Judd, Les Claypool and John Mayer. It would seem likely to see a few of his famous friends and disciples come join Weir’s 75 th birthday weekend festivities at The Warfield. Don't miss out, tickets are still available as of this writing and can be found here: FridaySaturdaySunday.
