DC Dead

From 1970 to 1995, The Grateful Dead played 53 shows in the Washington, DC area. There were many great moments over those 25 years, from the double-bill with the Allman Brothers at RFK in 1973 to the return of Casey Jones at RFK in 1992. All but 3 of the shows that I saw were at either The Capital Centre or RFK (in Bold).

In future posts, I'll talk more about some of my memories of those two venues. In the meantime, here's a rundown of all their DC-Area appearances:

The Capital Centre/USAir Arena - 1974, 1976, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1987 (3 shows), 1988 (4), 1990 (3), 1991 (4), 1992 (2), 1993 (3), 1994 (3)

RFK Stadium - 1973 (2 shows), 1986 (2), 1989 (2), 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993 (2), 1994 (2), 1995 (2)
