  • A Swell Dance Concert at the 18,000 seat Nassau Coliseum was sandwiched between the Dead's successful tour of Europe in early 1972 and their release of Wake of the Flood in November, 1973. Missing from the lineup was original keyboardist Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, who had been absent from the band since the Continental tour. Pigpen, who was only 27 when he died on March 8 from liver disease brought on by hard living, was replaced by Keith Godchaux and wife Donna on keyboard and vocals, respectively.

    This poster is mounted on card and can only be shipped in the United States. There is water staining along the right side. This is the original concert poster, a smaller repro was printed by Bill Graham Archives in 2008.
