Dead & Company, a spinoff band of Grateful Dead, has added six more dates to its residency at Las Vegas’ Sphere with the run now scheduled for May 16 until July 13.

Titled “Dead Forever”, the residency was initially supposed to consist of 18 shows over six consecutive weeks, but the band has extended its stay due to high demand for tickets.

More tickets have been released, including a special three-day VIP package. Tickets are currently available for sale and range in prices from around $150 (£120/€140) to $3,000.

The residency is claimed to include “never-before-seen visual storytelling from Dead & Company, providing fans with the ultimate connection to the music through these innovative and immersive shows”.

It will begin a year after the band announced their final tour. In February, Dead & Company teased that it would not be the end however, posting a video that read, “There are other ways to make sure the music never stops. And it’s gonna be a ball.” The video then showed the iconic Steal Your Face logo on the Sphere.

Drummer Bill Kreutzmann exited the band’s final tour for “creative” reasons and is not expected to return, with Jay Lane coming in to replace him.

After the Sphere opened in September last year, Irish rock band U2 played a 40-date residency focused on the 1991 album “Achtung Baby”.

Following U2’s last show at the venue on March 2, Phish is due to play from April 18-21.
