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.
