Grateful Dead Rise for Obama With Live Concert Tonight

Tonight, one last band will shake off its cobwebs in an attempt to Barack voters all night long. The Grateful Dead announced plans over the weekend to reunite for one show, and one show only, in support of the candidate.

Tickets to the live performance sold out almost instantly, but Deadheads far and wide can watch the performance from the comfort of their dwellings at IClips.net at 7:30p.m. PST.

What a long strange trip it's been for Obama since his campaign began back in 2006, but he's kept on truckin', and come tomorrow, the future of his presidential hopes will be determined for the people, by the people.

Here's the link again to watch tonight's Grateful Dead concert live on the Internet - link.

As a former deadhead i can attest:

1) the band eschewed politics. while the band and fans may hve had many 60's ideals, the GD never strayed into politics.

2) the band allways had a giant american flag on stage, red white and blue are thier colors, and, were allways very patriotic.

i was very disapointed to see this. great bands and personalities die this way. Now that they have let me know how they feel about me and what i believe in, how do they think i feel about them now?

Oh, there'll be some firing up all right...
