Sunrise Theater Calendar
Grateful Dead Meet Up at the Movies | Sponsored by Murphy Insurance Agency
The 9th Annual Grateful Dead Meet-Up at the Movies brings the band’s legendary 1991 Giants Stadium Concert to the Sunrise Theater on August 3.
This highly anticipated fan event will showcase the previously unreleased complete June 17, 1991 concert from New Jersey. This concert is widely considered to be one of the greatest shows of the band's final decade performing. Opening with a shocking "Eyes Of The World," the Dead were firing on all cylinders from the opening notes of the show, mixing beloved classics like " Truckin ’" and "Uncle John’s Band" with rarities including "Saint Of Circumstance," "Might As Well," "New Speedway Boogie," and "China Doll." But the real standout was the recurrence of "Dark Star," which wove in and out of the setlist, making no less than six distinct appearances and teases during the show. The Dead capped off the spectacular night with a perfect song to send the crowd on its way The Band’s “The Weight.”
The Sunrise event’s August 3 date is in celebration of the late Grateful Dead founding member Jerry Garcia’s August 1 birthday.
