The Grateful Dead have unveiled the track lists for several box sets comprising music and footage from the “Core Four” original members’ final three performances in July at Chicago’s Soldier Field. The Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead sets will be available on November 20th.

Two of the sets – a 12-CD/Blu-ray and a 12-CD-DVD combo – are exclusives, which will be limited to 20,000 individually numbered copies for each of the sets. The packages will also include a bonus disc featuring behind-the-scenes footage, with backstage looks at the shows. Member Bill Kreutzmann’s son, Jason, who previously directed other Dead documentaries, helmed the backstage footage. Both sets will contain full audio and high-definition video from all three shows.

There are also several different retail versions. Material culled from the band’s final July 5th show will be available as a 3-CD/2 Blu-ray, 3/CD-DVD, 2 Blu-Ray or 2-DVD set, all of which include full audio from that night. A 2-CD “Best Of” edition features audio highlights from the three shows. The retail versions will additionally be available as digital downloads.

Mickey Hart, Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir’s “Fare Thee Well” final concert dates took place on July 3rd, 4th and 5th. Joined by guitarist Trey Anastasio, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and pianist Bruce Hornsby, the band performed at Soldier Field almost 20 years to the day of its last concert with Jerry Garcia at the same venue.
