AXIAL TILT - A Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary Celebration at Jazzfest in New Orleans!
The Grateful Dead is a true American original. Born in San Francisco in 1965 and still creating music in various forms 50 years later, the Grateful Dead represents the most successful example yet of a band blending both rock and jazz in a live format accessible to millions.
The band's now-legendary multi-hour forays into musical exploration via in-the-moment improvisation became a beacon for millions of Deadheads who traveled millions of miles to spend thousands of nights with the Grateful Dead, experiencing their one-of-a-kind sharing of energy between band and audience.
We believe it fitting to celebrate the birth of this truly unique American original in much the same way we celebrate the birth of some of this country's most beloved jazz artists, and to share the celebration with folks who appreciate the Grateful Dead's enduring musical legacy as much as they do those of the greatest musical artists New Orleans -- and the rest of the country -- has ever produced.
Featuring some of the most well-known names in the extended Grateful Dead family, AXIAL TILT will be an all-out party in honor of 50 years of music, life, harmony, and a spirit of togetherness inspired and Furthured by America's own Grateful Dead.

In true Grateful Dead spirit, we want to do all we can to insure that actual fans are in attendance, not scalper clients. Therefore, we have established a 2-ticket per person limit, and decided to offer Will Call tickets only (so if you hear or see anyone trying to sell hard tickets, they're bogus -- please spread the word). Only the person actually purchasing the tickets will be able to pick them up at the venue (NO I.D. = NO ENTRY), and there will be *NO REFUNDS* (exchanges allowed at the door as long as the person picking up the tickets provides a photocopy of purchaser's driver's license and credit card used to make the purchase, along with a note from the purchaser authorizing them to receive the tickets...so please plan accordingly, as there will be no exceptions).
We are thrilled to have the opportunity to kick out the Grateful Dead jams in New Orleans in celebration of the band's 50th Anniversary, and hope you can join us (and if for some reason you can't make it, we hope you'll join our 2-night webcast and celebrate with us virtually: AXIAL TILT Webcast)!
Stu, Rob, Mitch, Robin and Jay
