Grateful Dead Meet-Up at the Movies 2017 Announced

The Grateful Dead have hosted annual “meet-ups” at the movie theaters across the country annually, and they just announced the next incarnation of the event dubbed as the 7th Annual Grateful Dead Meet-Up at the Movies.

This year they’ll be hosting a never-before-seen performance of the Grateful Dead’s show at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. on July 12, 1989.

In celebration of what would have been Jerry Garcia’s 75th birthday, meet up with friends and fellow Dead Heads in cinemas nationwide for the 7th Annual Grateful Dead Meet-Up at the Movies. This special one-night event features the band’s compete, never-before-seen performance at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C. on 7/12/1989. This year’s concert features a rare first set that contains at least one song sung by each of the four lead singers and a terrific show-opening rendition of the band’s biggest hit “Touch Of Grey.” The show’s second set begins with a very uncommon second-set opener, “Sugaree,” two songs with Bruce Hornsby sitting in (“Sugaree,” and “Man Smart [Woman Smarter]”), plus one of the only video recorded versions of “Black Muddy River.”

Smoking setlist, too!
