Bob Weir will reunite RatDog for a performance at his TRI Studios on January 25. A free broadcast of the performance will be available through TRI’s website at 8 PM ET. RatDog has not performed since January of 2010, though most of the group backed Weir during his set with the Marin Symphony earlier this year. In a recent Relix cover story, Weir mentioned his desire to bring past and present members of RatDog together for a revue-style performance at TRI Studios.
“One of the shows I want to do [in the studio] is RatDog,” Weir explained. “I want to get all or at least most of the guys who are still alive who played with RatDog and do a retrospective. In doing so, we’ll probably make a DVD and a record. I’ve got unfinished business with that outfit.”
Weir will also continue to tour with Furthur and perform as a solo act in 2012.
