Grateful Dead Prepare to Say Goodbye After 50 Years

The Grateful Deads going to “keep on truckin” for one last set of shows. The Grateful Dead was a band able to perfectly and capture the heart of the American counterculture, and whose career spanned for thirty years. When Jerry Garcia died, in 1995, it seemed that it would not be right to continue on without him.

The aftermath of the Grateful Dead led different members to create musical projects that were each able to capture different elements that made up the band.

Furthur, Phil Lesh and Friends, Ratdog, 7 Walkers, Mickey Hart Band, and the Dead all included different members of the Grateful Dead, but now they are all ready to get the band back together for one last time.

Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann, four original members of the Grateful Dead have just announced that they will be playing three farewell shows to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the band. “It is with respect and gratitude that we reconvene the Dead one last time to celebrate – not merely the band’s legacy, but also the community that we’ve been playing to, and with, for fifty years,” said Lesh who gave a statement regarding the intentions of the band on playing one last time.

The shows taking place from July 3 to July 5, will attract “Dead Heads” from all around the world because if this is truly the last time this band plans to play many will like to say goodbye properly.

This will be the first time the band has played a show in twenty years. Several other musicians including, Phish’s Trey Anastasio, Bruce Hornsby, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, will accompany the four original members.

Tickets go on sale to the public on February 14, but the original Grateful Dead Ticketing Service will have an opportunity to get tickets before the rest.
