The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart are joined by keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and Allman Brothers Band/Gov’t Mule guitarist Warren Haynes on their first official Dead tour in over five years. Join Jay Blakesberg, the official tour photographer, and Justin Kreutzmann, the official tour videographer, as they document this fantastic musical journey.
Features include streaming audio from all the shows, video and photo blogs from rehearsals, backstage and concert footage, an interactive Photomosaic of The Dead 2009 tour logo made up of over 500 photographs of the band, news feed with live updates, set lists within seconds of a song being played from each concert, and an MP3 download consisting of two hours of live music from the tour.
“The Dead are known for being very progressive in utilizing new technology and in the past by doing so have changed the landscape of the music industry” said Mosaic Legends founder Craig Adam. “We are honored to work with them to bring this very unique experience to iPhone and iPod touch users.”
Mosaic Legends’ App Builder Platform is a turnkey solution that provides musicians with an exciting new way to communicate directly with and deliver a usually not seen backstage experience to their fans. “With this new Dead tour App Mosaic Legends is bringing us the future earlier than expected” said Phil Lesh.
“The Dead Tour 2009” is available for $19.99 from Apple’s App store:
