Dark Star Orchestra's Full Summer Tour Announced

Article Contributed by Dark Star Orchestra | Published on Wednesday, May 8, 2024

Dark Star Orchestra's Summer Tour plans are now complete with the roll out of nearly a dozen new shows. This Summer's nation-spanning tour reaches both coasts - from California to New York - and many places in between, with the band performing at some of its favorite venues as well as a handful of new stages.

For the band's Sunday, July 21 show at the Stone Pony Summer Stage in Asbury Park, DSO announces today they will be recreating the Dead's epic 9/3/77 show from Englishtown, NJ.  DSO bassist Skip Vangelas notes that "Englishtown is the biggest Grateful Dead show ever held in New Jersey with an estimated 150,000 in attendance.  Its proximity, only 25 miles from Asbury Park, and the fact that it was an epic outdoor show, made sense for us to choose.  It’s a classic show in the GD world and one that New Jerseyans, whether Deadhead or not have never forgotten!"

With Dark Star Orchestra's 26 date coast to coast Summer tour announced, fans have a plethora of options to experience the premiere group recreating the Grateful Dead concert experience. With special dates dotted throughout the tour, highlighting a debut at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA on July 13 as a celebration of 40 years of the Rex Foundation; the benefit performance will see DSO offer a 40-years-to-the-day recreation of the Dead's 7/13/84 performance from The Greek Theatre.
