Live Dead ’69 return to the UK with two nights at Under the Bridge celebrating the Grateful Dead’s 50th Anniversary at Woodstock!

The All-Star, legacy ensemble, are set to expand their concept and repertoire for 2019 to include GRATEFUL DEAD @ Woodstock 50th Anniversary set. Their winter shows in February 2017 & 2018 have assumed a certain mythology amongst UK Deadheads … the finale at London’s much regarded Under The Bridge concert venue was sold out and video of the performance has been widely circulated on the web. A recent U.S. performance was played on “The Grateful Dead Hour” syndicated radio show.
