The Dead are set to reunite for 5 shows entitled: Fare Thee Well…
It promises to be the ultimate flashback.
This summer, the surviving members of ’60s psychedelic-rock legends The Grateful Dead will reunite for one last run to celebrate the band’s 50th birthday — and mark the 20th anniversary since the death of founding singer-guitarist and guru Jerry Garcia, who suffered a heart attack in rehab at age 53.
Dubbed Fare Thee Well, the five shows in Santa Clara (June 27-28) and Chicago (July 3-5) will see the Dead’s ‘Core Four’ — singer-guitarist Bob Weir, bassist Phil Lesh, and rhythm devils Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart — bolstered by Phish leader Trey Anastasio (handling Jerry’s parts) and keyboardists Jeff Chimenti and Bruce Hornsby (the latter is basically an unofficial member; he’s played more than 100 gigs with them over the decades).
