2017 Update

Grateful Dead Movie

"Long Strange Trip" premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 23, 2017. Then it had a nationwide screening in the USA that same year. Currently it is streaming on Amazon Video. When you get ready to watch it, be sure to bring food and drink -- the movie is four hours long.

Grateful Dead Concert

A once-in-a-lifetime concert was held on on July 3 - 5 in 2015, when the Grateful Dead re-united for three days of festivities in Chicago.

How rare was this? The Grateful Dead got together in 1965 and played for thirty years in front of dedicated music-lovers who became affectionately known as Deadheads. Unfortunately, Jerry Garcia -- songwriter and much loved guitar-playing vocalist for the band -- passed away in 1995, after they had completed a concert engagement at Chicago's Soldiers Field. 

With that loss, the Grateful Dead decided to disband. The remaining members played with other musicians over the years to keep the spirit of the Grateful Dead alive, and performed under a series of other band names. 

This new concert series finally re-united the surviving original members of the band -- Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and Bill Kreutzmann -- with long-time band member Mickey Hart. Joining them were Trey Anastasio, Jeff Chimenti and Bruce Hornsby. We were told that when this concert engagement was completed, the members would scatter again and this would be the last time the original band members will play together. The sands run through the hour glass.

Fifty years after they were formed, and twenty years after their last concert in Chicago, they returned to the scene of the crime for one last go.
