first_imgBack in 1987, Bob Dylan and The Grateful Dead teamed up for an unforgettable summer tour. Dylan had been coming off a series of unsuccessful releases, and first teamed up with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers for a tour. Dylan and the Dead would perform in both 1986 and 1987, though the July 1987 series would ultimately make its way onto the live album releases. Listen To Brent Mydland’s Final Grateful Dead Performance, On This Day In 1990While the live album was written off as underwhelming, there’s still a lot to love about the show on July 24th, 1987 at the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum in Oakland, CA. After two great sets of the Grateful Dead to get things going, it was the third set that featured the full collaboration between Dylan and Dead members. Jerry Garcia really works his magic in the Dylan catalog, and the rest of the band members give their all for the performance. It’s a true testament to their musicianship to be able to support Dylan and his unique style, but this show sees the Dead really pulling together for the cause.Fortunately, we have some taped audio to reflect back on this great performance.
