The Ratdog show at The Palms casino in Las Vegas went on last night an hour late and without frontman Bob Weir. The Palms made an announcement after waiting to start the show, stating Weir was unable to perform. People who had already purchased tickets were offered refunds, although Ratdog still did perform. Reports from those in attendance say Weir did not perform due to “not feeling well” – no specifics were provided.
The Grateful Dead community as a whole is wishing for a speedy recovery and continued good health to their “Ace”. Forums across the internet are urging fans to send positive vibes only and not to speculate what the issue is, keep positive and send love & light to Weir at this time. We will continue to bring updates on his health as we hear them, until then remain eternally grateful and forever dead.
