The pulse has quickened for Dead and Company at the Sphere.

The band has added six shows, from July 4-13, to its previously announced “Dead Forever” production. That adds the Fourth of July appearance, and brings the total to 24 shows total, beginning May 16.

Dead and Company announced the new shows on social media Friday afternoon. The original set was announced Thursday morning.

Advance presale registration is available at deadandcompany.com. The artist presale begins 10 a.m. Monday, Pacific time. Advance registration does not guarantee tickets. The general on-sale will begin 10 a.m. Feb. 9 Pacific time at ticketmaster.com.

Tickets start at $145, which includes all fees.

Dead and Company is led by ex-Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Mickey Hart, joined by guitar great John Mayer, bassist Oteil Burbridge, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and drummer Jay Lane.

The Sphere residency will employ new visual storytelling from the band, which promises that each weekend’s three performances will feature a unique setlist.
