Fare Thee Well

The Grateful Dead will descend upon the Windy City, for what is billed to be their final performance together. Soldier field will host this epic reunion, almost 20 years to the day since their final performance at this same iconic venue. Jeff Chimenti, Bruce Hornsby, and Trey Anastasio will join the remaining original members over the July Fourth weekend. Needless to say, this will be a hot ticket. Thanks to TRI studios for sending out the notification.

Chimenti is an obvious selection, he has a strong handle of their catalog and is an absolute shredder who's honed his skills within that musical landscape. Bruce will play piano and most likely assist with vocals. There are other guitarists I would have rather seen fill the role given to Anastasio, what can you do?

The core four are the ultimate draw here. It's nice to know that the hatchets are buried, or at least set aside, in honor of a half-century worth of influence. And for Jerry too. Get ready Dead Heads!
