There's a glimmer of hope for those who don't have tickets to the Grateful Dead reunion shows and don't have the funds for hefty scalper fees.
With tickets to the upcoming Grateful Dead 50th anniversary reunion shows completely sold out and going for absurdly expensive prices on the secondary market, some fans have been forced to take desperate measures.
This summer Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes is teaming with distinguished symphonies like the Boston Pops and the San Francisco Symphony to bring the music of Jerry Garcia to fans in an entirely new way. The collaborators will approach the late singer's original compositions and Grateful Dead hits at nine different halls and amphitheaters across the country.
In celebration of what would have been Jerry Garcia's 70th birthday on Aug. 1, his former guitarist in the Grateful Dead, Bob Weir, has organized a tribute concert for tonight (Aug. 3). The show will take place at Weir's TRI Studios in San Rafael, Calif., and will be webcast at their website beginning at 9:30PM Eastern.
