Deadheads under quarantine won't need to give in to anxiety about truckin' it out to summer tour.
The Grateful Dead are the latest band to announce a live concert stream during the coronavirus crisis as the group will be hosting a weekly stream of classic concerts. Appropriately titled Shakedown Stream, fans can head to the Grateful Dead's YouTube channel where they'll be replaying shows in their entirety.
Prior to each screening, Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux and historian Gary Lambert will hold a live show where they'll be answering fan submitted questions. If you'd like to submit a question to the duo, click here.
Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux said in a statement, “We’ve decided to start the streaming video series with the Buffalo ’89 show for a couple of primary reasons."
“Its excellence is indisputable and is something that we think pretty much everyone will enjoy in the absence of actually being able to see live concerts; and, as a tribute to the many rabid, loyal Dead Heads from the hard-hit tri-state area, which has been affected more than anywhere else in the country. To all of the Dead Heads in New York State and beyond, this one’s for you.”
Those wanting to have a Grateful Dead filled weekend will be able to do so as Dead & Company is continuing to offer their weekly One More Saturday Night live concert streams.
