The 6th annual Grateful Dead "Meet-Up at the Movies" has been announced. The scheduled date for this year's event will be May 11, 2016 at 7 PM local time, when fans will be treated to a previously unreleased Grateful Dead concert video from Sullivan Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts that took place on July 2, 1989.

In anticipation of the day, the band has shared a live performance clip of "Tennessee Jed" from that concert, which you can watch above. You can find more information about the event and how to purchase tickets by visiting

In a press release, here's what you can expect to hear from the concert:

Catch the Dead in fine form, kicking off their summer tour to a sold-out crowd of more than 60,000 fans, and pulling out surprises at every turn — from the rare show-opener “Playing In The Band” to the only time they ever started a second set with “Friend Of The Devil.” The concert also includes a spectacular performance of “Wang Dang Doodle,” one of the band’s finest sing-along versions of “Tennessee Jed,” two Bob Dylan covers (“Queen Jane Approximately” and “Quinn The Eskimo”) along with a medley of Traffic’s “Dear Mr. Fantasy” segued into the Beatles’ “Hey Jude.” Not to mention a sequence that will bring you back to the Dead circa 1973: "Truckin'"> "He's Gone"> "Eyes Of The World."
