Final Grateful Dead Shows Announced & Will Include Trey Anastasio, Bruce Hornsby and Jeff Chimenti

Posted 20 Jan 2015 in News

We just reported on the Disco Biscuits upcoming show with Bill Kreutzmann & Mickey Hart so it seems appropriate to mention that the remaining members of the Dead will be performing their final shows this summer in Chicago and will be joined by Trey Anastasio, Bruce Hornsby and Jeff Chimenti.The Grateful Dead are at the top of the American jam band music hierarchy.  After 50 years of incredible music and memories the remaining members have decided to perform their final shows.  Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir will hit the stage at Chicago’s Soldier Field on July 3, 4 & 5.  Honestly, can you think of a better way to celebrate Independence Day?  Probably not but if you still need convincing to place your mail order request keep reading.

Fare Thee Well

Joining the Dead for 2 sets of music each night will be Trey Anastasio of Phish, Bruce Hornsby and Jeff Chimenti.  Hornsby has played with the Dead from 1990-1992 and also played with The Other Ones.  Jeff Chimenti is familiar with all of the tunes from his experience in The Other Ones as well as RatDog, Furthur and Phil Lesh & Friends.

The ticketing for the Soldier Field shows is being done old school so you better figure out what a SASE is and find out where you can pick up a money order as these won’t be shows that you want to miss.  This is your chance to bid farewell to some true American Icons that changed the musical landscape and created more than just music…they created a community and a lifestyle that will live on forever.


Dave has been eating, living, and breathing music since before he could talk. This makes Dave perfect for his role here at Guitar News Daily.
