This weekend Dark Star Orchestra will kick off a three night run at the newly remodeled UC Theater in downtown Berkeley on their annual Spring Tour West. These dates will also be their last gigs in California for the remainder of 2016 and mark the first time the Grateful Dead tribute band will be performing in city. To celebrate the band is breaking tradition and has pre-revealed the final evenings recreation: the Grateful Dead’s August 24, 1972 performance at the Berkeley Community Theater:

“We’re thrilled to announce on Saturday, April 9th, Dark Star Orchestra will pay tribute to Berkeley by recreating the Grateful Dead’s infamous 8/24/72 Berkeley Community Theater show on the last of our 3-night stand at the UC Theater in Berkeley, CA as part of Spring Tour West. Considered one of the best Dead performances ever, this show will take us on a journey we’re unlikely to forget. Out of over 2,500 shows, DSO has only announced a handful of setlists in advance making this night quite the exception and the perfect way to celebrate our first ever shows in Berkeley. We hope you’ll join us in bringing this epic ‘72 Berkeley Community Theater show to life!”

Tickets available at Tickefly and UC Theater online
