#XPNDylan Day: Listen to Bob Dylan with the Grateful Dead in concert at JFK Stadium from July 1987 - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

All day long, we’re celebrating the 75th birthday of Bob Dylan here on XPN. In July of 1987, Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead toured together. Together they did six shows including one at the now defunct John F. Kennedy Stadium in South Philly.
JFK Stadium hosted a number of legendary shows back in the day, before it was condemned in 1989. Peter Frampton, Gary Wright, and Yes, played the 1976 Bicentennial Concert in June of that year. In 1978 the Rolling Stones performed, The Who, with Santana and The Clash played there in 1982, and the Jacksons played four nights in 1984. U2, Pink Floyd played in 1987, and the Dead were the last band to play there in 1989.

During the tour, each show was split up into two sets; an opening set played by the Dead, and a second set where the Dead were Bob’s backup band. Below, listen to a very good quality audience recording of the second set, peppered with Dylan classics. They encored with “Touch of Gray.”
