At the weekend, The Grateful Dead plays the first ad second of five final shows. Joining long-time members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir onstage at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, were pianist Bruce Hornsby – who played with the band between 1988 and 1995 — keyboardist Jeff Chimenti (a member of post-Grateful Dead acts The Dead and Further) and Phish’s Trey Anastasio, who filled in for the late Jerry Garcia.
In the carpark the freaks congregated: The Deadheads, the beatniks and the deadbeats, giving the event the spectacular tie-dyed hue unique to Grateful Dead shows. Here’s a few of our favourites…
