The Grateful Dead stopped by the Bremen, Germany Beat Club studios on April 21, 1972 to film an appearance for the German music television show. Audio of the performance went unheard until its inclusion in the 2011 box set Europe ’72: The Complete Recordings. Video of the Dead’s Beat Club show premiered in theaters on July 17, 2014 at the fourth annual Grateful Dead Meet Up At The Movies. The GD lineup at the time featured guitarists Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir, bassist Phil Lesh, drummer Bill Kreutzmann, keyboardists Ron “Pigpen” McKernan and Keith Godchaux and vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux.
