Vice-president of NCM Fathom, Dan Diamond, said, “This flashback concert is a chance for Dead Heads to relive the experience of one the band’s most famous performances… The never-before-seen interview with Jerry Garcia is definitely a must-see, and Dead fans may just see themselves or their friends on the big screen who were at the 1974 concerts. This event will be big fun for Dead fans of all ages.”
