Day 1 – Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door 1989
To commemorate and celebrate the 50 year musical legacy of the Grateful Dead, an iconic American band and California favorite, we bring you “50 Days of the Dead”.
The final song played at Philadelphia’s iconic and aging JFK Stadium in the sweltering, humid heat of July 1989. The Dead had a magical way of capturing Bob Dylan songs like no other band. Here’s an incredible version of Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.
We are curating a list of fan favorites around the country from among the thousands of shows featuring the Grateful Dead, The Jerry Garcia Band along with a few surprises from artists who faithfully continue to carry on the spirit of the Dead.
Every Deadhead has their own favorite list of performances from thousands of shows. We’ll be touching upon just 50 picks culled over 50 years from fans who enjoy sharing the music.
We hope you enjoy this trip celebrating “50 Days of the Dead” with us and invite you to send us your favorite Dead shows or song performances you can’t live without. You just might see it posted here.
