On this week’s edition of their ‘Shakedown Stream’ broadcast, the Grateful Dead will showcase their July 2, 1989 at Sullivan Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. Bob Weir himself will serve as the guest on the pre-show, hosted by Dead archivist David Grateful Lemieux and historian Gary Lambert. He will answer fan-submitted questions during a Q&A portion. The broadcast will occur on May 8, and the Q&A portion will begin at 8 p.m. ET.

“The rumors are true! The one and only Bobby Weir’s gonna be hanging out with David and Gary on the Shakedown Stream,” wrote the Dead in an announcement post on social media. They also included a link for fans to submit questions; click here to submit.
