12-31-1987 – Throwing Stones

Ticket to New Year’s is a concert video by the Grateful Dead. It was recorded at the Oakland Coliseum Arena in Oakland, California on December 31, 1987.

Video description:

“Debuting in September 1982, Throwing Stones rather quickly found a home as the penultimate song of many Grateful Dead second sets in the final decade+ of the Dead’s touring activities. Usually followed by Not Fade Away, Throwing Stones was a powerful Weir-Barlow song with a political message, a rarity for the Grateful Dead. Now, nearly forty years after its debut, its message still resonates, perhaps more strongly than ever.” – David Lemieux
