After two reunion benefit concerts for President-elect Barack Obama, the surviving members of the Grateful Dead will embark on their first tour in five years this spring. The

Dead will hit the road beginning April 12. Tickets begin going on sale Jan. 13.

The Original Dead members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart will be augmented by keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and Allman Brothers Band/Gov't Mule guitarist Warren Haynes. "For me, it's the question mark that's really pulling me in ... what's gonna happen?," says Lesh. "When you walk out on the stage the possibilities are infinite every time."
