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!
For our next stop on the We Will Get By Streaming Tour, we go from one historic run to another. This day in 1984, the Dead kicked off a three-night run at the legendary Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA.
Night one of the run was one of the most memorable shows of the 80s for the encore alone—the Dead busted out “Dark Star” for the first time in three years and then would tuck it away for another five until the fall of ’89. Also check out Jerry rage on “CC Rider” on the first set, and an extended “Hell in a Bucket.”
