September Devoted to International Dead
The month of September will be devoted to "International" Grateful Dead shows: Canada, Europe or Egypt. Our first feature show will take us to the famous Rainbow Theatre in London, England. In 1981, the Dead played a run of shows at the Rainbow Theatre in early October as well as other venues in Europe. However, it should be noted that the Grateful Dead played periodically abroad thus requiring a US passport. They played in Canada in the 60s as well as other years, they played 3 shows in Cairo, Egypt, and played numerous times in Europe. Stay tuned for the next feature shows coming up through out the month. Who knows where this theme will take us; France in 1974, Ontario in 1990 or their first night in front of the Pyramids in 1978.
