The event Deadheads have been awaiting for two decades is just about here. On Saturday, the four surviving members of the Grateful Dead will perform live together as the Dead for the first time since Jerry Garcia died in August 1995.

The concert at Levi's Stadium begins a five-date mini farewell tour, dubbed "Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead."

The band's longtime manager says while these may be the last shows the Dead ever play, the spirit they created will live forever.

"Dead Heads love each other and the fact that these shows will happen is only going to be one stop in the path. It's not over," Dennis McNally said.

The Dead will also play Levi's Stadium on Sunday, followed by three shows next week in Chicago.

Tickets are available for purchase for both dates here.
