Grateful Dead Moving Coming To Theaters

A previously unreleased Grateful Dead show performing an in-studio performance recorded for the German TV show Beat Club back in 1972 will hit movie theaters across North American this summer.

The movie, is called Beat Club 4/21/72 and features the Dead playing a short version of the set they played during their 1972 tour of Europe. It will play on June 17 as the fourth annual installment of the band's "Meet-Up at the Movies" series.

"To see such outstanding footage of some of the Grateful Dead's most important songs from 1972, including a 20-minute version of "The Other One" and two way-out-there renditions of "Playing in the Band," is a truly remarkable experience," Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux said in a statement. "There's never been a show from this era filmed so clearly in its entirety, and this audiovisual document captures the band at arguably their creative zenith."

Beat Club 4/21/72 will hit the big screen for one night only at select movie theaters on July 17.
