This Sunday, the final three shows of the epic Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of the Grateful Dead concerts from 2015 will be rebroadcast on the internet via FANS.com.

The shows, which took place at Soldier Field in Chicago, Ill. July 4-5, 2015, marked the final time that iconic Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann performed together. The epic shows also marked the first time the quartet had appeared together since The Dead’s 2009 tour.

The Fare Thee Well shows also featured Trey Anastasio, Bruce Hornsby, and Jeff Chimenti in guest appearances, and all of this took place before Weir, Hart and Kreutzmann formed Dead & Company and began touring extensively with pals Chimenti, Oteil Burbridge and John Mayer.

The one-day live stream event will go up on FANS.com on Sunday, July 5, and is a special opportunity to experience the Fare Thee Well shows from home. Per the FANS.com site:

Wave that flag! For the first time ever, FANS will rebroadcast the final three shows of Fare Thee Well from JUL 3, 4, and 5, 2015, on JUL 5, 2020.
