Last night’s final Grateful Dead concert featured a very special guest in the audience, none other then legendary actor Bill Murray. Murray is a Chicago native, and was down in the ground level for the epic final show.

Murray is a Chicago native with a penchant for cameo appearances, so it’s not so surprising to see him on the floor at Soldier Field. Still, it has been cool to witness some celebrities enjoying the Grateful festivities, including John Mayer, Katy Perry, Senator Al Franken, George R.R. Martin, and Bill Walton (of course), among many others.

Murray has long professed his love for the Grateful Dead, going well back into the band’s original Jerry Garcia run. When the Dead made their Saturday Night Live appearance in 1978, Murray was a member of the cast and even included drummer Bill Kreutzmann in one of Murray’s classic lounge singer sketches. Bill The Drummer didn’t have any lines, but—according to his book—was drinking real beer when he sat at a table as an extra. The part he was born to play! (Sketch begins at 40:15).

Like many Deadheads, Bill Murray even attempted to get other members of his family on the bus, as his brother Joel Murray explains in this animated interview.

Hope they all enjoyed the show as much as we did!
