The Grateful Dead’s 30 years of touring continued after Jerry Garcia’s death; first as The Other Ones, and later simply as The Dead. The band now includes the original members Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, as well as guitarist Warren Haynes and keyboardist Jeff Chimenti.
We arrived at Madison Square Garden, where The Dead have played more than 50 concerts, greeted by a crowd of fans desperate for tickets. The lure to sell was strong but Kevin is convinced scalping tickets leads to prison so we proceeded to the show. The show tonight opened with five Garcia tunes in row, Cosmic Charlie, China Cat, Shakedown, Ship of Fools, and He’s Gone. Also, an appropriate song for the night: One More Saturday Night.
