Dead & Company’s tour brought them to Alpine Valley this weekend for two shows heavy on many of the Dead favorites the band has been playing so far on their first summer tour.
Among the highlights included the Dead & Co debut of “Dire Wolf” on Saturday night during the first set. The Saturday show also featured a pair of Bob Dylan covers as the group rolled through “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” and an encore (and live debut) of “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door,” a tune the Dead have covered 72 times dating back to 1987.
Watch a take on the tune below. Dead & Company’s tour continues on Wednesday in Burgettstown, PA..
