Woodstock was a nightmare for The Grateful Dead. Though Woodstock was not an easy gig for anybody, The Grateful Dead experienced more than their fair share of problems, with dangerous technical problems, a deluge of rain and a stage that seemed on the brink of giving way throughout their show. With this year marking the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, Goldmine asked a number of artists who were there to share their memories of those three days.
After months of fan speculation bolstered by an October 2008 performance at the “Change Rocks” concert/rally for Barack Obama in State College, Pa., and three recent viral internet videos with band interviews and performance footage, the Grateful Dead have officially announced tour dates for 2009. This marks the band’s first trek since 2004’s “Wave That Flag” tour.
