The Grateful Dead on Google Maps

When I fist saw this Grateful Dead Shows map my first thought was that the remaining band members had decided to organise a really, really big reunion tour. On closer inspection however the map seems to be a map of all the venues that the Grateful Dead have ever played.

It is isn't often that we feature a non-API map on Google Maps Mania but there is something lo-fi about this embedded Google My Map that seems appropriate to the band being memorialised. What's more the map is still useful to any music fans interested in the many live appearances of the Grateful Dead.

Users can click on any of the venue markers and then click on the "Search for items related to this venue" link to get details of all the band's appearances at the venue.
