Bill Murray @ Fare Thee Well Grateful Dead final concert



Bill Murray and Phil Lesh








Amongst the many celebrities and fans alike that attended the Grateful Dead core four's last show at Soldier Field (July 5, 2015) Bill Murray has to be the coolest.  Murray who lives in Chicago was spotted on the floor and thankfully captured on camera by the sublime Jenny Lewis (whose Instagram account has some great short short videos of her experience of the concert).

Murray seems to have spent a lot of his time with Lewis (understandably) whose phenomenal album The Voyager is steeped in personal pyschedelic references.



Other notables backstage for the concerts (according to Relix) included: 

David Axelrod, Al Franken, Perry Farrell (Jane's Addiction was onced described by Garcia as his favourite current band), self-avowed Deadhead George RR Martin, Lee Ranaldo, Liz Phair, Yo La Tengo's Ira Kaplan, Colts owner Jim Irsay and members of Wilco, The National and The Avett Brothers.  Also Phish' Mike Gordon and Page McConnell and members of various forgettable jambands (moe., the Disco Biscuits and Lettuce).

Oh and Chloe Sevigny and Katy Perry were there too.
