Former Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir has canceled the remaining 2014 dates he had scheduled with his current act Ratdog.

Writing on the band's website, Weir wrote that "circumstances have necessitated that all scheduled tour dates for Bob Weir & RatDog are being canceled." "This applies to all dates on the summer tour starting on Thursday, August 14 in Boston through September 14 in Nashville and also includes the Jamaica event in January of 2015 . . . We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience."

On Monday, Weir's manager spoke to Rolling Stone, saying that "Bobby's been having health problems for a while and now there are plenty of people who support him and want to help him get the care he needs."

Those who bought tickets for the dates can obtain refunds via the point of purchase.
