Grateful Dead farewell show in cinemas all over the world

Fare Thee Well. With close to 50 years around legendary U.S. band Grateful Dead has decided to quit with three already sold out shows in Chicago.
The four original members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, and Bob Weir will be joined on stage by Trey Anastasio (guitar), Jeff Chimenti (keyboards), and Bruce Hornsby (piano).

In Sweden six cinemas will show the July 5 show on July 6 and cinemas in other parts of the world will do the same. More info here! But Radio Dupree is still surprised, as the band hardly can be called a household name although it has been around since the 1960's.
In the U.S. movie theatres will livestream all three shows.

Adding to the festivities there's also a limited run of 6 500 copies of the box set 30 Trips Around The Sun containing 30 live shows from 1966 - 1995 for a total of more than 73 hours of music on 80 CDs. Yep. A pretty BIG box!
You can also get it on a limited edition USB stick in high definition (FLAC 96/24) and mp3. 1 000 copies made. The price for these collector items? 699.98 US Dollars.
