Opening Night | Robert Hunter Kicks Off First Tour Of Decade

Ever since June when Robert Hunter announced he'd be hitting the road for his first tour in nearly a decade, we've been waiting to see what he had in store. The Grateful Dead lyricist kicked off his tour last night at The Paramount in Huntington, NY and mixed GD classics with songs he wrote for other artists such as Bob Dylan.
