Global entertainment distributor Trafalgar Releasing is bringing the 9th Annual Grateful Dead Meet-Up at the Movies to select movie theaters on Thursday, August 1.

And this highly anticipated annual fan event will showcase this year the previously unreleased complete June 17, 1991 concert from Giants Stadium in New Jersey, widely considered to be one of the greatest shows of the band’s final decade of performing.

The event’s August 1 date coincides with the birthday of late Grateful Dead founding member Jerry Garcia, which is now a yearly time of celebration in the Dead Head community.


The band’s archivist and legacy manager David Lemieux shared his excitement about the event in a press release:

The Summer Tour of 1991 was widely considered one of the best of the 1990s, and the June 17, 1991 show at Giants Stadium was nearly universally acclaimed as the best of the tour… Now, 28 years later, its mystique is here for everyone to see and hear in the best possible quality. Over the years, the greatest Dead shows of all time have frequently been mentioned as suggestions and requests for release, shows such as Harpur College, Veneta, Cornell, Hampton’s Warlocks shows, and amongst those, near the top of the request list, is Giants Stadium 6/17/91. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Trafalgar to bring it to you on August 1. It’s going to be an outstanding night of music.

The June 17, 1991 concert features “Eyes Of The World,” “Truckin’,” “Uncle John’s Band,” along with Grateful Dead rarities including “Saint Of Circumstance,” “Might As Well,” “New Speedway Boogie,” and so much more.
