Grateful Dead ‘Meet-Up At The Movies’ 2019 Features 1991 Concert
This year’s Grateful Dead Meet-Up At The Movies will feature screenings of the band’s June 17, 1991 concert at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Meet-Up At The Movies will bring fans together at theaters around the world on August 1, 2019. Tickets for the ninth annual Meet-Up At The Movies are available here.
For the band’s stellar Summer Tour 1991 the lineup of guitarists Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir, keyboardist Vince Welnick, drummers Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart and bassist Phil Lesh was joined by acclaimed pianist Bruce Hornsby. This year marks the first time Bruce and Vince will be featured in the show screened at Meet-Up At The Movies.
Highlights from the night, for which a few aired on ABC’s In Concert live music series, include an extremely rare “Eyes Of The World” opener, the first “Dark Star” jam since 1974, a beautiful “China Doll” and intense “Cassidy.” Here’s more information about the band’s June 17, 1991 concert:
Sure to be a crowd pleaser, 6/17/91 is one of only two shows in the Grateful Dead’s archive recorded to 48-track analog tape, providing spectacular and unprecedented audio quality. The show features fan favorites such as “Eyes Of The World,” “Truckin’,” “Uncle John’s Band,” along with Grateful Dead rarities including “Saint Of Circumstance,” “Might As Well,” “New Speedway Boogie,” and much more. Mixed by Jeffrey Norman in glorious surround sound at Bob Weir’s TRI Studios, mastered by David Glasser at Airshow Mastering, with video from the multi-camera live edit, this will be the first time the Bruce Hornsby and Vince Welnick line-up has ever appeared on the big screen.
