Grateful Dead's Fare Thee Well Tour

For their recent Fare Thee Well Tour, Grateful Dead performed July 4 at Chicago's Soldier Field as well as the preceding weekend at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, CA, for which Bandit Lites and Felix Lighting supplied identical lighting rigs, respectively. Candace Brightman—the band's LD for 40 of the band's 50 year-history—left her retirement of eight years to be their lighting designer/director one last time. Paul Hoffman, a principal of Pulse Lighting, programmed the lighting.
