Watch Videos From The Grateful Dead’s First Fare Thee Well Show

Back in January, the surviving members of the Grateful Dead announced that they were reuniting for a trio of farewell shows in Chicago to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Scalpers immediately started selling tickets for as high as $10,000, of course, and Deadheads were told by the Chicago Fire Department that they couldn’t camp out overnight. After all this drama, the Dead decided to add two more shows in California, and the first of them happened last night at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. The “core four” of Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann played alongside longtime Dead collaborator Bruce Hornsby and Weir’s RatDog bandmate Jeff Chimenti, and Phish frontman Trey Anastasio filled in for the late Jerry Garcia. In accordance with true Dead tradition, you can watch some fan-shot bootleg videos of their performance below.
