Deadheads are what loyal Grateful Dead fans are known as and thousands are expected in Chicago this weekend to see the rock legends play three shows at Soldier Field.  Field Museum organizer, and fellow Deadhead, Megan Williams collaborated with the band and their promoters to bring “Dead” culture to the Field Museum.  

The Band announced this would be their final tour which caused the historically mellow deadheads to express sentiment and excitement.
