I have had this evening’s concert “in the bag” for many weeks now, in anticipation of the D&C’s
Florida tour, but apparently D&C cares more for the health and well-being of the state’s residents
than our dear governor does, cancelling the two dates. However, the band’s appearance on
“Yesterday’s Dead Today” goes on!

There are a few m ore reviews than these, but the majority are either whining about “other shows”
or “people talking over the band constantly”. so they are omitted:
REVIEW: Great Show
It was a great show in the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. Great crowd, very chill by all the staff.
And thanks for posting the show. The torch has been passed, the musicians rocked and Jeff
Chimenti, the keyboardist, is cranking. Great improvisation by all the band. One more Saturday
Night ends the first set? Wow. They are playing a different offense, very cool. And as great as ever.
Opener Althea into Uncle John’s Band.. ..AU, the symbol for gold….

REVIEW: Perfect ending to great tour
I saw them in St. Louis, Deer Creek, and this 2nd CHicago show and all were smokin, with great
energy from the band and crowd. I’m just so grateful we still have this excellent brand of Dead music
in 2021. I’ve been able to take my 14 year old daughter to THREE shows now, and with this setlist, I
was very happy for her. She also dug the “old school” 2nd set at Creek too though. Everything after
Space was excellent and the pre-Drums was a quintessential ’88-95 type Dead show (without the
Samba and Shoe Fits :). Great Stuff, but I agree, there was a drunk lady in the aisle next to us
babbling on and on to a friend during Death Don’t in Indy and I finally kindly had to let her know
this was a first time song for me and she’s disturbing it!

REVIEW: Thank you taper!
Was great show, the energy the crowd had was off the charts, the band was on fire.
