CHICAGO -- The Grateful Dead are going out on a high note, setting a new ticket sales record at Soldier Field.

The legendary rockers are in the middle of their three-night "Fare Thee Well" concert series.

Friday night's concert sold more than 70,000 tickets, beating U2's record of nearly 67,000 in 2009.

Last night's performance was also sold out, though it hasn't been announced whether that also set a ticket record.

Tonight's show promises to be epic as it will be the Dead's last performance ever.

    So the Dead are On The Road Again one last time. Such a Deal! I can hardly wait to go Round And Round being a Passenger and Truckin’ to the Promised Land where The Music Never Stopped and will Not Fade Away.

    I’m done bein’ a Loser, Throwin’ Stones, and goin’ to Hell In A Bucket, ’cause I want to hear again that Masterpiece, that Greatest Story Ever Told, which is when we Turn On Our Love Light, Let It Grow, find our way out of the Cold Rain and Snow, and into the Mornin’ Dew.

    Its High Time, so Gimmie Some Lovin’ and lets make Fire On The Mountain, cause I Know You Rider!

    Now, Death Don’t Have No Mercy and He’s Gone, but Jerry will be there in Spirit. So, It ain’t All Over Now, Baby Blue.

    Join with me in a Sunshine Daydream for some Good Lovin’.

    See ya there!
