Fans Can Get Psyched With a Wealth of Free On Demand Interviews and Behind-the-Scenes Content, Now Playing on Cable Systems Nationwide

Each Night’s Concert Performance Will Be Unique and Feature Different Surprise Guest Stars; All Shows Will Replay on VOD and PPV

New York – After 50 years of thrilling fans in concerts and recordings, the Grateful Dead is going out in style with a three-night Pay-Per-View (PPV) spectacular, Grateful Dead: Fare Thee Well, on July 3, 4 and 5, 2015, live from Soldier Field in Chicago. Each day’s show begins with a countdown at 7PM ET, followed by the live event from 8PM-1AM ET. To celebrate the upcoming special event, cable providers around the country are now offering a great selection of Free On Demand (FOD) content for viewers.  Plus, for fans who won’t be able to catch the live telecasts, concert replays will be available on Video On Demand (VOD) on cable starting the day after each concert.  Viewers will also find replays on linear PPV channels*. Both remain available until Aug. 3.


Four original band members reunite to headline the event: Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, joined by Trey Anastasio (guitar), Jeff Chimenti (keyboards) and Bruce Hornsby (piano). Each night will have completely different set list, and different surprise guests will join the band during each performance. The concerts will take place nearly 20 years to the day of the last Grateful Dead concert with Jerry Garcia.
