It’s been a long, strange trip for Dead and Company, the Grateful Dead offshoot featuring John Mayer and several members of the Dead, including guitarist Bob Weir. And still, they have yet to announce a show in Tampa.

For now, we’ll have to make do with Weir on his own.

The singer-songwriter-guitarist is coming to St. Petersburg’s Jannus Live on March 1 with his new backing band Wolf Bros, featuring legendary producer Don Was and drummer Jay Lane, who played with Weir in Further and RatDog. Tickets to see the trio start at $69.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. Click here for details.

It has been six years since Weir last performed in Tampa, when he sat in with My Morning Jacket and Wilco at the Americanarama Festival in 2013. In the Wolf Bros trio format, they’ll play songs of the Grateful Dead and more.

“This is more fun than a frog in a glass of milk,” Weir said in a statement about playing with Was and Lane. Okay then!
