The Dead :: 04.25.09 :: Madison Square Garden :: New York, NY
The Dead (Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Warren Haynes and Jeff Chimenti) played the tenth show of their Spring Tour last night (Saturday April 25, 2009) at the Madison Square Garden in New York City. They busted out first ever versions of The Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" and Grateful Dead classic "Ship of Fools." And check the "satanic ritual" backstage where Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann make Jeff Chimenti an official "Rhythm Devil." And yup, that's Phish's Mike Gordon helping with initiation.
