Crimson White & Indigo is a live album by the American rock band the Grateful Dead. It contains the complete concert recorded at John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 7, 1989. The album consists of three CDs, plus a video recording of the same show on one DVD.[4] It was released on April 20, 2010.

This was the last rock concert performed at JFK Stadium before it was demolished — the first having been performed by the Beatles in August 1966.[5] One track from this concert, "Blow Away", had been previously released as a bonus track on the expanded version of the Grateful Dead's last studio album, Built To Last.

The previous concert in this tour, performed at Rich Stadium in Buffalo, New York on July 4, 1989, was released in 2005 as the album Truckin' Up to Buffalo. That title also was produced on both CD and DVD, but separately rather than together in the same package.

The name Crimson White & Indigo is taken from the lyrics of the song "Standing on the Moon", which the Dead first performed earlier in 1989. The version of this song featured in this release is an exceptional performance, with an extended ending jam.
