Clip previews new ‘Fare Thee Well’ box set documenting band’s final Chicago shows

 BY October 22, 20
The Grateful Dead ostensibly closed up shop after their Fare Thee Well shows with Trey Anastasio this past summer, but there’s been a steady stream of news emanating from the band’s camp since then. Most noteworthy is the upcoming Dead & Company tour, which pairs esteemed Core Four members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann with John Mayer. Fans can also look forward to the November 20th release of music from the three Chicago Fare Thee Well shows in several different formats, including a mammoth 12-CD and 7-DVD-or-Blu-ray set containing the entirety of the Soldier Field run, limited to 20,000 copies and available exclusively through dead.net. We’re premiering a version of the American Beautyclassic “Truckin'” from the final Chicago show, which shows off the easy rapport the band established with their featured guest.

The exclusive dead.net versions of the Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead box include a bonus disc with more than two hours of behind-the scenes footage — directed by Kreutzmann’s son, Justin, who also helmed the concert footage — as well as Circles Around the Sun’s complete intermission music for the three Soldier Field shows.

 The Dead & Company tour begins October 29th in Albany, New York, and continues through New Year’s Eve.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Grateful Dead, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, and Bob Weir will reunite at Chicago’s Soldier Field, nearly 20 years to the day from the last Grateful Dead concert, which took place at the same venue. “Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead” will occur over three nights on July 3, 4, and 5, 2015, marking the original members’ last-ever performance together. The band will be joined by Trey Anastasio (guitar), Jeff Chimenti (keyboards), and Bruce Hornsby (piano). The group will perform two sets of music each night. In the tradition of the original Grateful Dead Ticketing Mail Order, tickets will first be made available via a first-come, first-served mail order system. All additional ticketing information is available at http://www.Dead50.net.
