- Backstage Passes
This category contains backstage passes used for Grateful Dead shows from 1989 through 1995. Backstage passes were printed in large sheets containing 32 different passes which were then cut apart and used for the individual shows. Anthony Reonegro was one of the artists who contributed to the designing of these backstage passes and was responsible for most of the popular “puzzle pass sets”. As we all know, the Grateful Dead performed hundreds of shows during this time period so there are also hundreds of different passes from these years. Some of the passes are fairly common and other quite scarce. The puzzle passes are the most popular, along with the one from Jerry Garcia’s last show at Soldier Field and the shows that many Dead followers deem to be the finer performances of the band.
