In honor of its history, Phil Lesh -- whose shows primarily consist of Grateful Dead material anyway -- dug even deeper into his old band's songbook, performing complete albums during each set until the final night. On Tuesday, he performed the band's first two studio albums with help from original Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir. Throughout the run, Lesh invited other guests from the Dead family onstage for other albums, but none as significant a reunion as Weir, who he brought out again for the three-set finale on Sunday, closing down the theater in a balloon-drop affair that featured a smorgasbord of Grateful Dead hits. Rising roots rocker Jackie Greene, Bob Dylan's guitarist Larry Campbell and the Mother Hips' Tim Bluhm kept the music going between sets with acoustic renditions of -- you guessed it -- songs somehow tied in with the Dead songbook.
AEG Live will take control of the 2,200 seat venue with unannounced but highly speculated plans to renovate, redo and rename.
