The shows have been attended by thousands, including a number of celebrities. Sadly, like most concerts or large events, there was a massive pile of trash to clean up afterwards.
As the fans moved on back to their homes after the concert, actor Bill Murray stuck around to help the clean up crew get rid of all the trash.
The show took place at Chicago’s Soldier Field, where 70,000 fans gathered to witness the last Grateful Dead show ever, and Page Six reported that Murray was the last fan standing, volunteering to help clean up the mess left behind by other attendees.
Katy Perry, John Mayer, “Game of Thrones” writer George R.R. Martin, David Axelrod, Sen. Al Franken, Bill Walton, Perry Farrell and Chloë Sevigny were also in attendance, but it was not reported that any of them stuck around to help with the clean up.
Sadly, if everyone would just pick up after themselves, this type of volunteering would not be needed, but Murray has set a great example of how real hippies should carry themselves.
