DeadTest™ Vol. 27 – Where Did They Play?

We’re back with the 27th volume of the DeadTest™ collection. This one focuses on the venues frequented by The Grateful Dead on their long, strange 30-year trip.

The venue – whether it was on the East Coast, West Coast or somewhere in between – played a major role in the overall, full-body concert experience. Each site had its own history, character and vibe – whether it was a ballroom, a stadium, indoor, outdoor or upside down in full rotation.

We all have our favorite venue(s), including the band members themselves. We all have memories from at least one or two places where our minds were beautifully and utterly blown.
