The Humans of The Dead

The Grateful Dead kick off their Fare Thee Well shows in California, and the Deadheads descend

At the weekend, The Grateful Dead plays the first ad second of five final shows. Joining long-time members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir onstage at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, were pianist Bruce Hornsby – who played with the band between 1988 and 1995 — keyboardist Jeff Chimenti (a member of post-Grateful Dead acts The Dead and Further) and Phish's Trey Anastasio, who filled in for the late Jerry Garcia.

In the carpark the freaks congregated: The Deadheads, the beatniks and the deadbeats, giving the event the spectacular tie-dyed hue unique to Grateful Dead shows. Here's a few of our favourites...
