Throwback Concert: The Dead at The XFINITY Theatre 2004

Throwback Concert: The Dead at The XFINITY Theatre 2004

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 2004.

WPLR and The Grateful Dead have had a long history together. From the shows at New Haven Coliseum and Yale Bowl right up until Jerry Garcia’s death in 1995, we have been grooving with our fellow Deadheads all along. So when the surviving members of the Grateful Dead decided to continue on after Jerry left us, we had to be there!

Today we go back to 2004 when The Dead came to The XFINITY Theatre (then know as the Meadows Music Theatre) on their “Wave That Flag Summer Tour.”
