Get Ready for the Fourth of July with a 7/4/87 Grateful Dead Set
Gear up for the Fourth of July with the good ol’ Grateful Dead.
This 7/4/87 set from Foxborough, Mass. starts off with an exhilarating “Touch of Grey,” and continues on with Grateful Dead classics like “Uncle John’s Band,” “Truckin’” and “Althea,” along with some of the songs off of the band’s 1987 album In the Dark such as “Tons of Steel.”
Throughout the celebratory, Independence Day set, the band gives off a very upbeat and playful vibe that keeps Deadheads dancing all the way through.
Between Bob Weir in his signature jorts, Phil Lesh with his American themed sweatband, Jerry Garcia’s late-’80s mullet and the Rhythm Devils’ cosmic “Drums/Space,” there is no better way to fuel your festivities than enjoying the Dead’s musical tradition.
And don’t forget to wave your flag “wide and high” all weekend long!
