When you think about the Grateful Dead words like eclectic and psychedelic immediately come to mind. Formed in Palo Alto, California in 1965, their music touched areas of musical artistry that other bands and the music industry simply did not know existed. The band perfectly encapsulated the counterculture of the 1960s. This shirt depicts the classic Grateful Dead skull and roses logo, representing the relic skulls of Christian Martyrs decorated with roses on their feast days. The design originally appeared on a poster for the September 16 and 17, 1966 Dead shows at the Avalon Ballroom and was later used as the cover for the album Grateful Dead.
The Grateful Dead Spring 1990 tour contributed to the second-highest-grossing tour($285 million) only behind The Rolling Stones. The tour began March 14, 1990, and ended May 6, 1990. Locations included Landover, Maryland, Hartford, Connecticut, Ontario, Canada, and Atlanta, Georgia.
