    “We love you guys more than words can tell, and hope to see you in the Bay Area or Chicago,” the band wrote in an open letter to fans. “If you can’t make it to the shows, we are working on ways for you to still experience our Fare Thee Well, from wherever you might be.”

    The performances will be the last time the four remaining members of the Grateful Dead – Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart—will perform onstage together.
