Dead 50

Before retiring in summer 2015, the Grateful Dead will return to its home base of California one last time to headline two nights at Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium. The legendary rock band is still scheduled to play its final three shows in Chicago during Fourth of July weekend, but now Dead Heads will have a chance to see the remaining members celebrate 50 years back in the Bay Area where all the magic started in 1965.
