9. Grateful Dead’s First Concert at MSG - 1979
The Grateful Dead started the year off right in January 1979 with two back-to-back shows at the Garden. It marked their first time stepping into the venue, but it definitely wouldn’t be their last. It’s reported that the band has performed at MSG over 50 times since then, even embarking on two nine-night stints in 1988 and 1991. Clearly this was their favorite place to stay when they were in the city.
