On Tour Together

Summer 1986
Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead shared the bill for five concerts during the summer of 1986.  Dylan was backed by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. I saw the show in Akron, OH and the fans were much more interested in hearing the Grateful Dead, hardly cheering after the Dylan set, which did not stop him from performing an encore.  At that show, Dylan joined the Grateful Dead during the first set for two tracks, "Don't Think Twice It's Alright," and "Baby Blue."
