No solid explanation has been given for Grateful Dead alumnus Bob Weir's decision to cancel his band RatDog's upcoming summer tour, which was supposed to begin Thursday (August 14).
A Facebook posting reads only that "Circumstances have necessitated that all scheduled tour dates for Bob Weir and RatDog are being cancelled. This applies to all dates on the summer tour starting on Thursday, August 14 in Boston through September 14 in Nashville and includes the Jamaica event in January of 2015...We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience."
Refunds are being offered at the place of purchase. There's no word on whether this is related to the onstage fall Weir took during an April 2013 show with the Dead spinoff band Furthur in Port Chester, N.Y. A month's worth of shows were canceled after that, and Weir has performed irregularly since then.
