Grateful Dead

August 1st - 8th Annual Meet-Up At The Movies

Come one, come all! On August 1st, we'll be bringing the boogie back to your favorite local moving picture house for the 8th Annual Grateful Dead Meet-Up at the Movies. This year's special cinema event is the full concert from July 7, 1989 at Philadelphia’s John F. Kennedy Stadium.

The final show at the historic venue, this one offers a peak snapshot of the Dead’s 1989 tour, where the band played to some of its biggest audiences ever, a result of the group’s only Top 40 hit, “Touch of Grey.” On this super-hot night (literally and figuratively), the Dead blazed through staples like "Hell In A Bucket" and "Scarlet Begonias," got in a few Blues, and pulled out a pair from the upcoming Built To Last- the aching ballad “Standing On The Moon” into the poignant “Blow Away,” a song co-written by keyboardist Brent Mydland, who sadly died a year later. And the last song ever performed at JFK Stadium? It was the Dead's cover of Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door."

Gather up your Grateful tribe and be sure to come on down early - we'll be revealing an exclusive look at the Dead's soon-to-be-announced 2018 boxed set.

Get your tickets here.

Will the July 2, 1989 at Foxborough (Meetup 2016) be released?

I went to that show, and was wondering if the show from July 2, 1989 at Sullivan Stadium in Foxborough, MA (Meetup 2016) ever be released on Blu-ray or dvd? The sound was excellent and one of my faves! I've been a Deadhead for only a short while (since 2010) and I would love to own a good copy of this on video (or audio!) Any answers or help are appreciated! Thanks, dead family!

I hope it was remixed by J. Norman and will be re-released on blu-ray with HD sound.

So Far Outtakes

My suggestion for the next one - So Far outtakes. We know there is tons of footage. The boys were gearing up for 20th anniversary and working out Cryptical, Keep On Growing, Comes a Time, and many others. Some great stuff hidden in the vaults - put out some '85 video! Please! p.s. would have made a great 33 1/3 release on quality vinyl. 33 1/3 years after it was played!

The sound is always too low because of the theaters next door. That is too bad and the managers won't turn it up. Bummer
