FANS.com has announced that they will be rebroadcasting the livestreams of Grateful Dead’s Fare Thee Well shows from Soldier Field in Chicago. The marathon session will begin at 12pm ET Sunday, July 5th and will feature all three performances from the historic weekend.
The marathon serves as the 5-year anniversary of the Chicago concerts, which took place July 3-5, 2015 and itself marked the 50th year of Grateful Dead and their preeminent impact on American music and culture.
Founding members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzman reunited on stage for the first time since The Dead’s fabled 2009 tour. This time, they would be joined by inimitable stalwarts Bruce Hornsby, Jeff Chimenti and Trey Anastasio.
The event will also provide fans an opportunity to donate to HeadCount, an organization dedicated to increasing democratic participation through active registration of concertgoers.
