Phil Lesh Announces “Surprise 80th Birthday Party” Concerts

Phil Lesh

Grateful Dead founder Phil Lesh will be celebrating his 80th birthday this year. The Lockn’ Festival has already announced they’ll be honoring him in June, but now Lesh himself has unveiled a string of dates at the Capitol Theater leading up to his birthday.

The “Surprise 80th Birthday Party” shows will feature Phil Lesh & Friends, although the “friends” have not been announced. The Capitol Theatre website says, “The shows will feature various lineups of old and new friends, but there’s a twist… Find out who’s playing when the curtain rises!”

The concerts are set for March 13, 14, and 15 with the 15th being his actual birthday. Until then, we can jam out with Phil in the van:

    What is that bass in the header image? It looks more modern than an Alembic.
