Due to the incredible demand for their last three shows at Solider Field on Chicago, the Dead have announced four additional shows for this summer’s Fare Thee Well tour. Two will take place at AT&T Park in San Fransisco on July 9th and 10th and two at MetLife Stadium in Rutherford, New Jersey July 12th and 13. The Dead will be joined once again by Phish frontman Trey Anastasio who is already slated to appear with them at Solider Field in Chicago for the dates previously announced.
The demand for tickets to the three previously scheduled shows in Chicago have surprised many in the Dead organization. The band received over 60,000 mail order requests in the pre-order stage, and 500,000 people logged on to try and buy tickets to the event when they went on sale. According to Ticketmaster, it was the single largest event they have ever dealt with in terms of volume of requests outside of the Super Bowl.
Just remember to stay Forever Grateful.
