The Grateful Dead have jumped aboard the Obama support train! According to Variety, the four remaining members of the band are reconnecting to play a show in support of the Democratic candidate next month. Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and Mickey Hart played a concert in February to encourage people to vote, and will be joined by fourth member Bill Kreutzmann on October 13 for the Obama fundraiser.
The Dead will perform at Penn State along with members of the Allman Brothers, adding fuel to the rumors that the two bands are teaming up in 2009 for a U.S. tour. That would be a trip!
