THE DEAD ,The Allman Brothers Band & The Doobie Brothers Saturday,May 16,2009 On Sale Friday,February 20 at 10:00 a.m.! Seattle,WA – Live Nation is very excited to welcome THE DEAD with guests the Allman Brothers Band and the Doobie Brothers to the Gorge Amphitheatre on Saturday,May 16,2009 at 3:30 p.m. After months of fan speculation bolstered by an October 2008 performance at the “Change Rocks”concert/rally for Barack Obama in State College,PA and three recent viral internet videos with band interviews and performance footage,the DEAD has officially announced tour dates for 2009.This is marks their first trek since 2004’s“Wave That Flag”tour. Original Dead members Bob Weir,Phil Lesh,Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart will be joined by keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and Allman Brothers Band/Gov’t Mule guitarist Warren Haynes,both of whom played with the band at the“Change Rocks”concert. The group first formed with lead guitarist Jerry Garcia as the Grateful Dead in 1965 and is legendary for their live performances.The Grammy-winning Rock & Roll Hall of Fame group always toured relentlessly,allowing their“Dead Head”fans to tape and trade their exploratory,free-flowing concerts. “We’ve got some unfinished business,”says guitarist/singer Bob Weir.“Everybody has a whole new bag of tricks; we have the body of material we worked up over the years and we have a mind meld going on here and it would be a sin to let that just wither and die.” Drummer Mickey Hart adds,“A mind meld is a terrible thing to waste.”Bassist Phil Lesh says,“For me,it’s the question mark that’s really pulling me in…what’s gonna happen? When you walk out on the stage the possibilities are infinite every time.The musical possibilities are infinite:there is no end to it,there’s no back wall and there’s no ceiling,there’s

no floor.It’s infinite and therefore you can still explore it till the day that you die.”Drummer Bill Kreutzmann says,“I get goose bumps just thinking about the possibilities.” Seeds of the idea of touring again were first planted in February of this year when Hart, Lesh and Weir played a“Dead Heads For Obama”show at the Warfield in their native San Francisco,and last year Weir,Kreutzmann and Hart performed at a post-inauguration for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Always sonic and technological adventurers,the Grateful Dead formed in San Francisco’s electric Haight-Ashbury neighborhood in the mid-‘60s,combining their love of bluegrass,country,electric rock and jazz to create one of the most iconic repertoires in rock music.By touring continuously and never relying on radio hits or latest trends, the Dead and Dead Heads created an unparalleled bond.Fans were turned on to the group by live bootlegs and word of mouth,with many following the band on the road for whole tours.

August 7 & 8,2009 - On Sale Friday,March 27 at 12:00 p.m.NOON! Seattle,WA – Live Nation welcomes PHISH to the Gorge Amphitheatre on Friday,August 7 and Saturday,August 8,2009. Phish will extend its summer tour with 12 additional dates.The announcement comes on the heels of the band’s three-night stand at Hampton Coliseum in Hampton,VA last weekend.“Over a massive,four-hour set, guitarist Trey Anastasio,bassist Mike Gordon,drummer Jon Fishman and keyboardist Page McConnell ripped through dozens of crowd-favorites,”said rollingstone.com. “They kicked things off with some of their most compositionally complex tunes,from the knotted prog-funk of‘Fluffhead’to‘Divided Sky,’where the group’s quiet, mellifluous interplay of guitar,drums,bass and keys suggests they’re as well-oiled of a machine as they’ve ever been.” The New York Times,which ran two features on the concerts,noted:“as the opening passage of the anthem‘Fluffhead’enveloped the room,the eruption of exultation was not merely for the band itself but also for the millions in the Phish diaspora who make up perhaps the most fervent fandom in pop music,”while USA Today said:“the foursome built the backbone of its first set on old-school material,expertly navigating hairpin changes and showing as much spunk as they ever have in this millennium.” The band has already recorded demos of 20 new songs and will enter the studio in April to begin work on its new album with Steve Lillywhite (U2,Rolling Stones,Dave Matthews Band),who produced Phish’s 1996 album,Billy Breathes.The Clifford Ball,a seven-DVD box set from JEMP Records/Rhino capturing the band’s entire performance at this landmark 1996 festival,just debuted at No.1 on Billboard’s Top Music Video chart.
