In 2014, Shapiro expanded his acclaimed Brooklyn Bowl brand of live venues with partnerships in Las Vegas and London. In July, the venue owner, promoter and festival producer will launch his highest-profile feat to date: three Fare Thee Well Grateful Dead reunion shows in Chicago, featuring Phish's Trey Anastasio. Produced with Madison House/AEG, the event is expected to draw 200,000 fans.
