The Dead to reunite and play for Obama

The news is that the boys will gather on October 13 at the Bryce Jordan Center at the Penn State campus in State College, PA. The date will mark the first time in four years that Dead alumni Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart will have performed together. Bob, Phil, & Mickey got back together in February for a benefit concert to support Barack Obama. Billy was unable to attend. Word on the street is that the boys will be embarking on a tour in early 2009. No info on ticket sales yet.
