Aside from today being Garcia’s birthday, the show also marks the first time ever that Garcia’s guitar Tiger was used in a public performance since the Grateful Dead member’s death. The full story about Tiger can be found here.The performance just recently started, and the Jerry Garcia page has shared some live footage from the event. Watch “Dark Star” and “Bird Song/Crazy Fingers” from the show, streaming below. We’ll be sure to update tomorrow with full coverage of this emotional performance.
