FTD celebrates Grateful Dead ‘Fare Thee Well’ tour with tie-dyed roses

Grateful Dead-inspired roses are available during the Fare Thee Well concerts

FTD, a leading online retailer of flowers and gifts, partnered with Peter Shapiro and Madison House Presents and gave Grateful Dead fans at the opening night of both the Chicago and Santa Clara Fare Thee Well concerts beautiful red roses and a special commemorative tag. In the spirit of the occasion and to show their appreciation to the loyal fans, FTD also handed out thousands of special FTD Tie-Dyed Roses.

Roses have become one of the most iconic symbols representing the Grateful Dead and are included in songs like “It Must Have Been the Roses” and “Ramble on Rose.” FTD’s colorful tie-dyed roses commemorate the legacy of the iconic band. As a gesture to the flower that has been such an integral part of the iconic band’s image, FTD and Madison House Presents passed out nearly 100,000 roses in all.

“FTD is honored to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the band by sharing our red and tie-dyed roses at the Fare Thee Well concerts. We hope the fans enjoyed the roses and commemorative keepsake as a tribute to the amazing legacy that the band has left,” said FTD President and Chief Executive Officer Rob Apatoff, who was at the concert handing out roses to the fans.

The FTD Tie-Dyed Roses feature a beautiful mix of yellow, blue, green, purple or pink, and are available at ftd.com.
