Got the summertime blues? Go on a long, strange tour with me through time. Every day in the month of July, we’ll feature a vintage recording from the Dead. Tune in on YouTube and join the chat as we explore the wonders of summer tours past. We will get by, we will survive!
Our next stop on the We Will Get By Streaming Tour brings us to the summer of 1982. One of the Dead’s more underrated tours, summer tour 1982 started off on the West Coast in mid-July and stopped in Morrison, CO for three nights before touring the mid-west.
Tonight’s concert is from the third and final show of the run at Red Rocks. Check out the slower and beautiful “Friend of the Devil” in the first set as well as “Loser.” The second set “Crazy Fingers” is fantastic and flows into a rocking “I Need a Miracle.”
