While most of us were ringing in the new year watching Dick Clark and sipping on some bubbly, The Dead chose to kick off 2009 with a bang by unveiling the first leg of its long-rumored 2009 reunion tour. Beginning in mid-April, the legendary outfit of Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann, along with guitarist Warren Haynes and RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, will kick off what is currently a 20-date North American tour. Pre-sale tickets will be available beginning on January 13th. Other details are still forthcoming.

The Dead previously reunited twice in 2008 in support of President-elect Barack Obama. They previously hinted at the idea of a full-fledged return last month with the release of a video featuring the band rehearsing.
