Dark Star Orchestra will continue their celebration of the Grateful Dead experience this summer with a newly announced batch of dates focusing on the East Coast and leading up to the band’s recently announced Pisgah Jubilee in August.

DSO’s summer schedule kicks off June 28 in Knoxville, TN, and will move throughout the Midwest into early July before heading to Oregon for the Northwest String Summit on July 18. The tour then shifts to the East Coast for more July dates and a number of August gigs in Massachusetts, Maine, New Jersey, Delaware and Virginia, culminating in the North Carolina Pisgah Jubilee. Throughout the summer, DSO have special planned recreations of classic Grateful Dead shows that celebrate landmark anniversaries this year, including 5/11/79 from Billerica, MA; 7/9/89 from New Jersey’s Giants Stadium; and 5/3/79 from North Carolina’s Charlotte Coliseum.

See Dark Star’s full summer schedule below. Fan club tickets are now available via the band’s website, with general sales beginning this Friday, March 15, at 10 a.m.
