Grateful Dead meetup features 1989 Alpine Valley concert

From staff reports:

The Grateful Dead Second Annual Meet-Up At The Movies 2012 is set to take Dead Heads back to the summer of 1989.

NCM Fathom Events and Rhino Entertainment present a never-before-seen concert recorded at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre on July 18, 1989, in Wisconsin. Movie theater audiences will experience the two-and-a-half hour concert in its entirety, including fan favorite songs, as well as a rare split of “Sugar Magnolia,” “Dear Mr. Fantasy” and “Hey Jude Medley.”

The concert will be shown at 7 p.m. April 19 at Century Theatres at The Commons Mall in Federal Way. It is one of several locations in the Puget Sound area.

As an introduction to the concert, audiences will also be presented with a slideshow of rare and never-before-seen photos of the band, accompanied by a previously unreleased live track recorded in the spring of 1990.

Tickets are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com.
