Like a full-body tattoo of the Treaty of Versailles or a wall-mounted seabass, a tribute band pays homage to successes of the past. Remember the good old days with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get one ticket to The American Beauty Project: A Tribute to the Grateful Dead at Orchestra Hall on Friday, June 17, at 8 p.m. (up to a $60 value). Seating is located on the main floor, including the VIP area. Assignments are based on availability and are first-come, first-served.

Saluting the legacy of San Francisco’s native psychedelic sons, The American Beauty Project tie-dyes a musical tapestry with covers of the Dead’s most seminal and iconic albums, Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty. Living Deadheads will revel like Elmer Fudd at a taxidermy expo as the facile vocals of Ollabelle, seasoned bluegrass grinner and picker Jim Lauderdale, and “Sugar Magnolia” sweet chanteuse Catherine Russell recreate the experience of seeing the Grateful Dead jam. Rounding up the roster of great faux dead, multi-instrumentalist David Mansfield, a veteran of Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue and founding member of Bruce Hornsby and the Range, sweetens the ears with musical pitchers of freshly squeezed verses.

Minnesota Orchestra

Customer Reviews

Always an amazing, beautiful, gentle, spirited, brilliant experience. We are graced with world conductor Osmo Vänskä and our world class musicians. Guest cellist Alisa Weilerman was, as always, brilliant in her own right. What a wonderful evening!
