Brokedown Palace

Brokedown Palace was first performed by the Grateful Dead in August 1970. The song was played about a dozen times a year through to 1973 but then dropped out of the repertoire appearing only in 1974, 1977 and 1979. Brokedown Palace returned to a more regular spot in the repertoire from 1980 onward being performed on average about a dozen times a year from 1980 through to 1994. During this period the song was usually the closing song of the evening. The last Grateful Dead performance of the song was in December 1994.

Brokedown Palace was also performed live by Robert Hunter, The Dead and Ratdog.
