Crimson White & Indigo is a live album by the American rock band the Grateful Dead. It contains the complete concert recorded at John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia on July 7, 1989. The album consists of three CDs, plus a video recording of the same show on one DVD. It was released on April 20, 2010. The video was produced and directed by Len Dell’Amico.

This concert was the last event held at JFK Stadium, which was condemned by the city six days later and would be demolished in 1992.

Video description:

“One of the largest crowds to see the Grateful Dead perform live in the 1980s and 1990s, at the last-ever concert at Philadelphia’s JFK Stadium, the July 7, 1989 audience was treated with one of the best shows of 1989, a year that’s widely considered one of the most consistently great of the Dead’s 30 year touring history. Opening with Hell In A Bucket, the band then jumped right into their unofficial party anthem, a song that was always certain to get everyone up and dancing: Iko Iko. This staple of the New Orleans sound at which the Dead were adept at playing was always a buoyant, ebullient entry in any Grateful Dead setlist. As you’ll see in the video, the band has much fun playing it on this night as we all had dancing to it.” – David Lemieux
