The Grateful Dead have returned to YouTube with their latest All the Years Live series. The latest stop on this long strange trip is RFK Stadium during the summer of 1989.
On July 12, the Dead’s summer tour landed in Washington, D.C. at RFK Stadium. Here is what Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux has to say about the “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodleloo in the first set, “Usually a show-opener in its last 20 years in the setlist, this version from RFK 1989 was played as the third song of the first set, always fun to see the Dead mix things up from the usual setlist format.”
Thanks to the Grateful Dead for the footage!
