Fresh off last week’s Shakedown Stream online event which featured an extensive pre-show interview with Bob Weir, the Grateful Dead will next air their June 17th, 1991 concert at East Rutherford, New Jersey’s Giants Stadium for this week’s webcast.
Confirmed by the band’s archivist David Lemieux on Thursday, the sixth installment of the weekly archive concert streaming series will begin at its usual time of 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Lemieux did not detail who, if anyone, would be the special guest to join himself and Gary Lambert.

Shakedown Stream Live Pre-Show
The June 17th, 1991 concert was one of three from the band’s latter-era performances at the old Giants Stadium included as part of the Saint of Circumstance archive box set which was officially released on Rhino last September. The band also selected the June 1991 concert as the show for last summer’s Meet-Up At The Movies global cinema event.
As the band noted in a statement shared with last year’s “Meet-Up At The Movies” announce,
“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.”
Join us tomorrow night for the sixth instalment of the @GratefulDead‘s Shakedown Stream at 5 PM PT/8 PM ET! We’ll be screening the Dead’s magnificent 6/17/91 Giants Stadium show. It’s all happening at the Grateful Dead’s youtube channel. pic.twitter.com/tHP1VnZ5Ud
