The Dead Reunite for Obama / Announce NYE Plans

The Dead Reunite for Obama / Announce NYE Plans
1,396 Viewed  - 0 Dug it

Last night, on Columbus Day, the surviving members of the Grateful Dead reunited on stage at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College, PA for the first time since August 19, 2004.  The reason for the reunion was to help stir up voter outreach in Pennsylvania, which is a "battleground" state.  Other guests of the night was the current line-up of the Allman Brothers, RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, Susan Tedeschi, and Ron Holloway.  Warren Haynes and Jeff Chimenti sat in with the Dead's set. Because of the political nature of this event, neither group performed under their proper band names.


After the Allman Bros opened the show, Jay Paterno (Penn State assistant football coach) and Penn State Cornerback Lydell Sargeant made an appearance on stage to show their support for Obama.  I taped message from Obama then followed with the Dead's set soon to follow.


Here is the Dead's setlist:
Filmed greeting by Senator Barack Obama, Truckin'> U.S. Blues, Help On The Way> Slipknot!> Franklin's Tower, Playing In The Band> Dark Star, St. Stephen> Unbroken Chain> The Other One> Throwin' Stones> Playing Reprise
Encore:
Touch of Grey> Not Fade Away


In addition, there has also an announcement that RatDog, Phil Lesh & Friends will spend New Years Eve together at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA, December 30 & 31, with Jackie Greene (current guitarist in Phil Lesh's band) supporting both nights
