After the unexpected success of their summer tour, Dead & Company hit the road this fall with a batch of new tour dates, and their stop at American Airlines Center, Dallas, Dec. 1, made our Hot Tickets chart this week. The venue came alive with the music of the Grateful Dead and the cheers of the 11,000 fans in attendance singing along and grossed nearly $1.2 million with ticket prices ranging from $45-$145. The band, which was created back in 2015, consists of Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann along with John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti. Fans of Mayer were given a unique opportunity to see a different side of the artist as the band covered decades of Grateful Dead hits. Dead & Company will be wrapping up the fall tour on Dec. 8, at BB&T Center, Sunrise, Fla.

Over 12,000 people took a heart-warming journey of self-discovery at David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts, Tampa, Fla., Nov. 28-Dec. 3, when they attended the Broadway musical hit Fun Home. The eight shows grossed a combined $725,000 with ticket prices ranging from $26-$78. This musical, which entwines tragedy with comedy, is a graphic memoir of cartoonist Alison Bechdel’s childhood and her loving, dysfunctional family. The Tony-award-winning musical is scheduled to make its London premiere at the Young Vic in June of next year.
