A Grateful Dead Family Reunion

Aug. 3-4

Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wis.

Promoters want to bring surviving members of Grateful Dead together for the first time since Jerry Garcia's death in 1995. The two-day concert would reunite Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, and Bob Weir. The highway committee in Walworth County denied Clear Channel a license to hold the concert at Alpine Valley (because of crowd control), but the decision will likely be appealed.
