Phil Lesh is entering his 17th year of playing with a rotating mix of Friends, both old and new. Phil began playing under the moniker Phil Lesh and Friends in 1998, after he’d returned to performing following the death of his friend and bandmate Jerry Garcia in 1995. With a varied mixture of some of the best performing musicians in the live music universe, Phil has kept his musical journey fresh by constantly and consistently putting together bands featuring dynamic, exciting musicians and singers working together toward keeping the music of the Grateful Dead moving forward into the future.

On May 31st, in the beautiful outdoor setting of Central Park, Lesh will be joined by a star-studded line up of friends including John Scofield, an innovator of modern jazz; John Medeski, a masterful keyboardist; Joe Russo, a commanding drummer and regular among Lesh's “Friends;" and Warren Haynes, a blues and rock guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter known for his work in Gov’t Mule and The Allman Brothers Band.

The Capitol Theatre invites you to join us as we celebrate community, imagination, and music in the urban park and retreat located in the heart of New York City. With a tradition of outdoor concerts dating back to 1859, Central Park has hosted some of the most legendary performers in music (including performances by the Grateful Dead in 1968 and 1969), securing a celebrated spot in concert history.

The show will take place during the late-afternoon with music starting at 4:30PM.
