Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros have announced a two-night celebration, on April 2 and 3 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City honoring the 50th anniversary of his solo debut Ace. The LP was released on May 1, 1972, and features a number of Grateful Dead adopted classics, such as “Playing in the Band,” “Black-Throated Wind” and “One More Saturday Night.”
Ace has become a staple for Grateful Dead fans; with a hit-heavy tracklist and signature hypnotic rock flavor, the album was widely adopted by Weir’s fellow bandmates, who acted as his backing band on the LP (with the exception of Ron “Pigpen” McKernan).
The vast majority of the songs from Ace appeared on additional Grateful Dead records, including “Mexicali Blues” on 1974’s Skeletons from the Closet: The Best of Grateful Dead and John Barlow/Weir penned “Cassidy” on the 1981 live double album, Reckoning.
The double-feature will mark a special occasion for Dead fans to secure tickets and relive the magic of 1972 and celebrate the longevity of the Grateful Dead experience sign up for early access to tickets here.
