Greatful Dead Return to Winterland

Published: 2003-11-28
The date December 31 – New Year's Eve – 1978 is a date Greatful Dead fans – especially the ones who were there – will never forget. The final concert at the Winterland in San Francisco. The concert was preserved for posterity when San Francisco PBS station KQED taped the show. The Greatful Dead hit the stage at midnight. When the sun rose the next morning the Dead were still playing. The band played to fans for seven hours. The Dead played until they were too exhausted to play anymore.

Now all of the Greatful Dead fans can see what all of the excitement was about. "The Closing of Winterland" a two disc DVD is being released this month. It's a DVD 25 years in the making.
