The Grateful Dead has shared the pro-shot video showcasing their 1991 performance of “Eyes Of The World”. The song is pulled from the band’s entire performance at New Jersey’s Giants Stadium on June 17th, 1991, which acts as the selected concert to be screened in theaters around the world this year for 2019 edition of the famous rock band’s annual “Meet-Up At The Movies” event.
The 15-minute performance of the Wake of the Flood classic opens with Jerry Garcia noodling away while Bob Weir, Bruce Hornsby, and Vince Wilneck all providing a strong layer of melodies for the guitarist to play over. Wilneck also takes on a solo of his own between verses as the band jams away through one of the fan-favorite setlist staples. Watch the entire performance of “Eyes Of The World” from 6/17/1991 below.

As the Dead mentioned to go with the initial 2019 “Meet-Up At The Movies” announcement:
“Sure to be a crowd pleaser, 6/17/91 is one of only two shows in the Grateful Dead’s archive recorded to 48-track analog tape, providing spectacular and unprecedented audio quality. The show features fan favorites such as “Eyes Of The World,” “Truckin’,” “Uncle John’s Band,” along with Grateful Dead rarities including “Saint Of Circumstance,” “Might As Well,” “New Speedway Boogie,” and much more. Mixed by Jeffrey Norman in glorious surround sound at Bob Weir’s TRI Studios, mastered by David Glasser at Airshow Mastering, with video from the multi-camera live edit, this will be the first time the Bruce Hornsby and Vince Welnick line-up has ever appeared on the big screen.”
