Over the last several years, Halloween weekend and the Count Basie Theater have come to be associated with the launching of Dead On Live’s latest and “Gratest” Grateful Dead production. Starting with their 1st offering in 2010 of Workingman’s Dead/American Beauty cover to cover, note for note show, to the adventurous note-perfect 2015 presentation of Terrapin Station, complete with symphony, DOL has left almost no stone unturned in the Dead’s 50-year history!

Over the last 30 years, Halloween weekend and the Grateful Dead have come to be known for their historic run of shows that brought acoustic Dead back to life in 1980’s Radio City Music Hall shows! This majestic run of shows set the stage for the touring machine the Grateful Dead were to become for the rest of their career, widening their audience and becoming the highest grossing touring band in history.

This year DOL endeavors to recreate the music, the sights, and sounds of this classic run of Dead shows with their stellar class of world class musicians specialized in this wonderful era. Acoustic gems like Cassidy, Birdsong and Ripple followed by full electric double drumming set featuring Jack Straw, Ramble On Rose and more. Come relive the magic with Dead On Live’s Radio City Music Hall 1980 Halloween show!

Presented by Count Basie Theatre
