About Grateful Dead
Grateful Dead is a social and musical phenomenon that grew into a genuine American treasure. In 1965, an entire generation was linked together by common ideals, gathering by the hundreds and thousands. This movement created a seamless connection between the band and its fans. As the band toured, Dead Heads would follow. Not because it was a part of popular culture, but because it is a true counterculture that exists to this very day-one that earnestly believes in the value of its beliefs. By 1995, Grateful Dead had attracted the most concert goers in the history
of the music business, and today remain one of the all-time leaders in concert ticket sales.
Eventually, the caravan evolved into a community with various artists, craftsmen, and entrepreneurs supplying a growing demand for merchandise that connected them to the music.
Today, the connection is as strong as ever. The band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of
Fame in 1994 and received a Grammy ® Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. Their final tally of 2,318 total concerts remains a world record.
