Today, Sacred Rose Festival and Relix announced that ahead of the inaugural Grateful Dead-inspired gathering at Chicago’s SeatGeek Stadium set for Aug. 26-28, they’ll be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Europe ’72 at Thalia Hall on Aug. 25.
The celebration at the iconic institution, which has been a beacon for and home to music lovers for over seven decades, will be led by guitarist and vocalist Eric Krasno. He will be joined by The Disco Biscuits’ Aaron Magner on keys, Ross James and Alex Koford of the Terrapin Family Band on bass, and drums; respectively and Ric Robertson on vocals and guitar who is known for his work with Lucius and Oliver Wood. More guests are expected to be announced soon.
The following day, after what is sure to be a bona fide once-in-a-lifetime celebration of Europe ’72, Sacred Rose Festival will kick off welcoming artists from across genres from psych-rock purists and jamband icons to indie rockers and Americana diehards. The inaugural lineup includes Phil Lesh & Friends, Wilco, Khruangbin, The War on Drugs, Black Pumas, Umphrey’s McGee, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Goose, STS9, Greensky Bluegrass, Kamasi Washington, Margo Price, and many more.
