There’s a whole lotta history between the Grateful Dead and Pennsylvania. The Dead performed 101 shows in the Keystone State between 1968 and 1995, placing it third on the list of states played, behind only California and New York. And various offshoots of the GD have continued to visit frequently in the quarter century since.
The Grateful Dead played Atlanta for the first time on July 7th, 1969, performing a memorable free concert in Piedmont Park and launching a warm relationship between band and city that endured for the remainder of the Dead’s three-decade career – and beyond, as was made quite clear when Dead & Company came to town nearly 48 years later, as their 2017 Summer tour reached the midway point. The band delivered a show full of top-shelf selections from the repertoire, lots of improvisational stretching out and surprises.
Six shows into the tour and building a nice head of steam, Dead & Company rolled into Salt Lake City – a town that, as John Barlow and Bob Weir once unforgettably told us in words and music, “just really makes Des Moines look second-rate.” Salt Lake is also known as the home of the famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir, as well as an NBA basketball franchise that, after relocating from New Orleans, decided to retain the team’s previous brand name, redubbing itself the Utah Jazz, despite its new home city’s less-than-clear relationship to the musical genre in question.
You’d have to go a long way to find a more Deadhead-friendly place on Earth than Boulder, Colorado.

Since its completion in the 1920s, the Hollywood Bowl has reigned as one of the world’s most revered venues, playing host to everything from symphonic concerts to jazz festivals to appearances by countless popular music artists, including the Beatles, Rolling Stones and, yes, the Grateful Dead, who graced its stage three times, perhaps most memorably during the Wall of Sound period in 1974.
Ah, Hollywood! Land of dreams, where you can set aside your troubles and escape into a world of make-believe. Oh, wait… is that Hollywood or Dead & Company tour? Hey, either one works for us - and especially when Dead & Company play in Hollywood, as they did for two memorable nights just a few stops into their 2017 Summer Tour.
