Today’s Blimp Time-Hop
37 years ago today, the Grateful Dead made their second sold-out appearance at the Civic Center in Portland. The ‘circus’ came town once again on May 11, 1980. This was the 15th Anniversary tour celebrating their first show together as the Warlocks in Menlo Park, California at Magoo’s Pizza on May 5, 1965.
At the end of May, the long strange trip continues as Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, John Mayer along with Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti are hitting the road for a summer tour once again as Dead & Company. They are doing two shows at Fenway in June on Father's Day weekend. Bring the kids!
Check out this Bob and Jerry appearance on Good Morning America in 1980…find out why Jerry calls Joan Lunden “chicken”. I love it when mainstream media tries to coolly explain the weird world of the Grateful Dead.The best part is at about 3:20 when we see and hear from the devoted Deadheads.
