Detailed Info

Santana Dates: September 29, 1991 - November 3, 1991 - September 12, 2004

From the first public Mime Troupe events in 1965 to his untimely death in 1991, Bill Graham set the standard for excellence in concert presentations and in doing so, redefined the art of communication for an entire generation. To honor Bill Graham, Steve Kahn and Melissa Gold, the Bill Graham Presents staff organized a free concert in Golden Gate Park for Sunday, November 3, 1991. Mother Nature cooperated and provided a comfortable and cloudless day as 300,000 people gathered in the Polo Field of Golden Gate Park. Sad circumstances aside, it was truly a celebration of Graham's life, filled with Laughter, Love, and Music.
