Grateful Dead fans, otherwise known as Deadheads, and John Mayer fans alike, gathered from all over the tristate area last night as Dead & Company headlined a completely sold out show at Camden’s BB&T Pavilion. The entire venue was a sea of tie dye and covered in a haze of smoke as the crowd was taken back to the psychedelic time of the 1970s – when the Grateful Dead (the Dead) were in their prime.

Dead & Company did everything last night just as they did back then – in Grateful Dead style. There was no opener, as always, but kept the crowd captivated with two spectacular sets by all 6 members. As the band walked out on stage and was greeted by a roar of applause and cheering, the band members picked up their instruments and went right into playing “Feel Like a Stranger,” a song off the Dead’s 1980 release, Go To Heaven, immediately turning BB&T Pavilion into a time machine and blasting thousands of people back in time.
