Listen To A Fiery Grateful Dead Show At Red Rocks, On This


After making their debut at the storied venue one year earlier, the Grateful Dead returned to Morrison, CO’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 1979 for a repeat performance of incredible proportions. The 1970s were peak years in the Dead’s career, with the band writing and performing some of their best music on a regular basis. Add to that the magic of Red Rocks, and you have yourself a performance for the ages.

The show itself opened up with a cover of Chuck Berry’s “Promised Land”, and featured great versions of tracks like “Brown Eyed Women”, “Althea”, “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider” and more. The section of “Estimated Prophet” > “Eyes of the World” > “Drums” > “Space” > “Not Fade Away” in the second set is the stuff of legends.
