The famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre just outside of Denver, CO, welcomed the Grateful Dead to its stage as headliners on 20 different occasions throughout their career starting in 1978. It’s only fitting that the venue host a special early screening of the upcoming documentary about the band, Long Strange Trip, prior to its arrival to Amazon Video this summer.
As Relix reports, the outdoor venue will host a one night only screening of Amir Bar-Lev’s highly anticipated documentary about the famous jam band on May 25. The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival back in the winter, won’t be available to audiences until it arrives on Amazon Prime Video on June 2.
The surviving members of the band have been planning a handful of nostalgia projects so far in 2017. They've expanded the release of the film into the record sales realm with its newly announced soundtrack with 80 extra minutes of Dead recordings. Dead & Company will also be setting off on a third straight summer tour with their pal John Mayer, and The Grateful Dead Movie will be celebrating its 40th anniversary by returning to theaters tomorrow, on 420.
