Grateful Dead Set To Reunite In Chicago for Farewell Concerts for 50th Anniversary With Trey Anastasio Of PhishPosted in Bangin, Chill, Events by nick | Tags: Grateful Dead, Reunion Show, Trey Anastasio
The true pioneers of the Jam Band culture, an essential bridge to today’s global electronic scene, the Grateful Dead have just announced some huge news. All living members will reunite for the first time in many years for the band’s 50th anniversary. The missing members will be filled in by Phish front man Trey Anastasio, the talented pianist Bruce Hornsby, and keyboardist Jeff Chimenti. Being that Phish is arguably considered the act that carried over the family oriented jam culture into what it is today, it couldn’t be more fitting that Trey has joined this incredible reunion.
The shows will be taking place over July 3rd, 4th and 5th this summer in the great city of Chicago, at the iconic Soldier Field.
Chicago has a special place in the band's history being where the group had their last shows as the Grateful Dead two decades ago in 1995 (Pictured above). This is also where React Presents has been throwing it’s Spring Awakening festival for the past 3 years, and also home to the Chicago Bears.
The shows will be on sale through The Grateful Dead’s original ticketing service and general tickets will be on sale February 14th.

To see rapper Logic go from being online hype, sponsored by Thissongissick for every mixtape, to having one of the most succesful hip-hop albums of the year is nothing short of incredible.
Today marks another check off the bucket list, as Logic continues his late night streak following up his visit to Jimmy Fallon with an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The artist will be a guest on the show Tuesday evening, but to make things even more unique and special, Logic will also perform at Jimmy's outdoor stage that will be broadcasted on TV. Artists bring in their own LA fanbase when playing at this stage, so to have someone like Logic play there is pretty insane, and we have full confidence there will be a line around the corner of those who won't make it in. Congratulations Logic, we could'nt be more excited to be apart of the ride!!
Check back for a recap of Logic's performance and if you live in LA and want to attend the event you can grab free tickets here.

2014 was Seattle-based ODESZA's year to truly shine thanks to largely in part to their highly successful debut album 'In Return' (which we consider to be one of the best releases of the year), on top of crushing the festival circuit and a couple sold out tours.
The duo have just announced their biggest show to date, at one of our favorite places in the world, the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater. Playing at this outdoor venue in the middle of the mountains is something most artists only dream of being able to do, let alone being able to co-headline.
They will be co-headlining the venue alongside funk lords Chromeo who are Red Rocks regulars and are sure to bring an unforgettable funky time.
These are only the headliners of the evening with support to be announced in coming months. With both artists track records of selling out though, it would be wise to pick up tickets now as they just went on sale today, minutes ago. Hope to see you all there!
