Bob Weir will per­form in his lat­est post-Dead in­car­na­tion, the trio Wolf Bros, at the Fillmore Mi­ami Beach on March 26.

Re­served-seat tick­ets cost $103.50, $84.50, $69.50 and $59.50, and are avail­able at LiveNa­tion.com, by phone at 800-745-3000 and at the Fillmore box of­fice, 1700 Washington Ave. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit Fill­moreMB.com.

The Grate­ful Dead gui­tarist and founder is joined by two fa­mil­iar faces on the Wolf Bros tour, Don Was on bass and Jay Lane on drums. Wolf Bros set lists have been wide-rang­ing, heavy on the deep re­cesses of the Dead cat­a­log, and spiked with fa­vorites by Jerry Gar­cia, RatDog, Bob Dy­lan and oth­ers.

Apart from his band Was Not Was, bassist Was has pro­duced and col­lab­o­rated with artists in­clud­ing the Rolling Stones, John Mayer and Bob Dy­lan. Was in­tro­duced Weir and Dead drum­mer Mickey Hart to John Mayer, which even­tu­ally led to the for­ma­tion of Dead & Com­pany.

Lane is a found­ing mem­ber of Weir’s long­time band RatDog, and also has toured with the Weir-Phil Lesh col­lab­o­ra­tion Furthur and per­formed with Weir and Rob Wasser­man as part of Scar­ing the Chil­dren.

“Wolf Bros is some­thing that re­ally took its roots back in the spring of 2015 when Don Was helped us piece to­gether Dead & Com­pany,” Weir said in a state­ment. “For a while now I’ve been itchin’ to ex­plore our songs in a trio set­ting. An up­right bass, my acous­tic or elec­tric gui­tar and a drum­mer. We did some re­hearsals this past spring and it was big fun—and that’s the whole idea. We were kickin’ around Dead songs as well as tunes from my back pages. I’m pretty sure we’re gonna have a big ad­ven­ture with this.”
