Printed in Denver on 100%  organically grown US Supima cotton. 

Inspired by the Rolling Stones infamous 1969 free performance at Hyde Park before 500,000 people. 

This was the first show played by the band since their 1967 European tour and their first show as a band since the death of estranged founding member Brian Jones 2 days prior. Mick Jagger read a short eulogy on stage before the set began as several hundred white butterflies were released. 

The Hells Angels were hired as stewards for the event to protect the stage, equipment and artists. The idea to use the Hells Angels came from the Dead's touring manager as they had been used for free concerts in California in years prior, and becoming adopted as part of the counterculture.
