The Grateful Dead/Beach Boys Concert--April 27, 1971

The Grateful Dead featuring The Beach Boys
Fillmore East, New York, NY
April 27, 1971

This is not truly a Beach Boys concert, but a Grateful Dead concert that featured the Beach Boys toward the end. This is a very popular bootleg recording among Beach Boys and Grateful Dead fans alike, and while it doesn't quite fit the criteria for inclusion on the archive, it is included here for historical purposes, as it was definitely a one-of-a-kind concert. The Beach Boys played on their own exactly two months later on closing night at the Fillmore East.

Included here is the portion of the setlist featuring the Beach Boys (the Grateful Dead's portion is not included here). On some songs (marked *), the two bands played together. On other songs (marked **), the Beach Boys played on their own (the Grateful Dead left the stage during these songs). The Grateful Dead played 16 songs prior to the Beach Boys joining them, and another 3 songs after the Beach Boys left the stage.

Beach Boys present:

Mike Love
Carl Wilson
Bruce Johnston
Al Jardine

Backup band included:



1. Searchin'*
