Chicago Cubs Announce 2019 Grateful Dead Night
The Chicago Cubs will again host a Grateful Dead Night when they take on the Los Angeles Dodgers at Wrigley Field on April 24. The National League Major League Baseball team partnered with Third Man Pressing to offer ticket purchasers a limited edition 7-inch vinyl record featuring two live Grateful Dead recordings.
The special ticket offer comes with admission to the game as well as a copy of the special vinyl record pressed at Jack White’s Third Man Pressing in Detroit, Michigan. Side A is the Grateful Dead’s performance of “Brown-Eyed Women” at Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre on May 13, 1977, and Side B is the Dead’s version of “Cumberland Blues” from the same venue on October 22, 1971.
The 2019 Chicago Cubs Grateful Dead Night will also present a pregame concert by Mr. Blotto. The team will donate a portion of the proceeds from Grateful Dead Night to the band’s Rex Foundation charitable organization. The Cubs first held a Grateful Dead Night at Wrigley Field during the 2018 season.
