Dead & Company will continue the Grateful Dead’s storied legacy at Cornell University and its famed Barton Hall when the band performs an intimate concert on May 8, 2023, the same date and venue as the Grateful Dead’s highly acclaimed performance at Cornell in 1977. Proceeds from the concert, a charitable event hosted on the Cornell University campus, will benefit the Recording Academy’s MusiCares organization, which provides a safety net of critical health and welfare services to the music industry, and Cornell University’s 2030 Project, in which researchers combine science, scholarship and innovation to develop climate-change solutions.
