The band re-group for Barack Obama fundraiser

The Grateful Dead have confirmed a one-off reunion show, reigniting the possibility that the four remaining members may soon go on a full scale reunion tour.

The group will perform at US Presidential candidate Barack Obama’s fundraiser at Penn State University on October 13.

Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and Mickey Hart last played at gig to encourage Americans to vote in February, and Variety magazine reports that fourth member Bill Kreutzmann will join them at the fundraiser next month.
