Bob Weir Sings Anthem With Phil Lesh & Tim Flannery

Update: We’ve added video of the performance to the post.

On Tuesday afternoon Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir made his first public appearance since abruptly canceling all future tour dates, when he teamed with his Grateful Dead/Furthur band mate Phil Lesh and coach/musician Tim Flannery to sing the National Anthem at San Francisco’s AT&T Park before the Giants took on the St. Louis Cardinals in Game Three of the National League Championship Series.

While Fox Sports 1 didn’t air the anthem as part of its coverage of the game, which the home team went on to win in extra innings, the Giants have shared video of Weir, Lesh and Flannery’s performance:

As a bonus, watch as Steve Perry pumps up the crowd by lip-syncing along to a beloved Journey hit:
