Grateful Dead - Tinley Park, IL - 1990-07-22

Grateful Dead at World Music Theatre, Tinley Park, IL, July 22, 1990.

The World Music Theatre is the worst of the worst in amphitheatre design. High ceilings, boomy sound, built for the summer rock/pop concert season (which basically means cheaply and without care), as opposed to venues like the Performing Arts Center in Saratoga which is essentially the summer home for one of New York's orchestras...

In addition to being the first time this venue hosted the Dead it was also the Dead's last three shows with keyboard player Brent Mydland, who died a few days after this show at his home back in California. Overdose.

Brent's fiery spirit certainly sparked Jerry's playing throughout the 80's and especially during the old man's return from his coma in 1986.
