The Philly Spectrum, site of over 50 Grateful Dead shows, is scheduled to be demolished sometime early next year. October is the last month for any and all performances at the Spectrum, with Pearl Jam as the final band to jam at the legendary venue.
The Spectrum was always a special destination for East Coast Deadheads. The Grateful Dead played more shows at the Spectrum than any other venue on the East Coast - 53 to be exact. Join me as we spotlight Philly Spectrum shows for the entire month of October. May 4, 1981 will be the first show to get us going this week. Peace, Jer Bear.
