MEDIA / SETLISTS / RECAP | Dead & Company @ Wrigley Field 2017

We'll have a more in-depth review of the weekend's music in a bit -- but before we get to that, we wanted to share some great media from the weekend, including a set of incredible photos contributed by John "Nunu" Zomot.  His eye for the event and access produced some truly memorable images.

Seeing members of the Grateful Dead in this packed stadium was a dream come true for many of the fans in attendance, and their collective energy proved to be worthy of the old building.

Meanwhile, the production crew did wonders integrating the Dead's imagery into the baseball environment.

And of course, the band came to PLAY,  Despite early start times (on stage by 6:45 each night), they managed to pack two full sets into each night.  They showcased an acoustic setup for a portion of each performance, and tapped the unknown during the nightly "Drums" > "Space" segment.

To cap it all off, they jammed along to a raging fireworks display on Saturday night as "Sunshine Daydream" in the encore finished the second set opening "Sugar Magnolia".
