i'm going to throw this one out and see if anyone bites.
one of the great things about going to a dead show was not ever knowing what they were going to play next. you could go to a three night stand and not have them repeat even one song.
obviously in the early days, when they had a much more limited repertoire they probably ended up repeating alot. but how about later on. are there any two shows which have exactly the same setlist from opener to encore? even if they were years apart.
just curious : ) would love to listen to the two tapes and compare them.
Building on Critter's post regarding touring Europe, I wanted to let you all know that we are hosting a special show on Deadvids.com on Wednesday, November 17th, 2010, from 9:00-11:30pm/ET called My First Grateful Dead Show: International Edition.
Each month, Deadvids.com hosts a new series called My First Grateful Dead Show. I host the show and each month a member guest hosts with me and we listen to their very first Grateful Dead show that they attended, and I interview them with 20 questions. During the interview, others that are present can ask additional questions of the guest host. We've been doing this show since late July 2010, and it's been catching on as people get to understand what it's about. We've found it really interesting and inspiring to hear each person's unique journey into this community and how it has impacted their lives.
So far, it's always been an American/US-based deadhead that is my guest host, but next month we will have our first "international" guest host - a deadhead from overseas. I can't tell you who, or what show (we try to keep those under wraps until show time), but I would like to invite all of you, US-based and those living outside the US, to please join us! FYI, our guest host will have to be up into the wee hours of their morning to do this show, so perhaps you guys overseas can make a party of it and get together and listen/participate in the discussion that evening, make an all-nighter of it...
If you cannot make it, we post an archive on Deadvids.com of all the past shows so folks can see whose show it was and the link to archive.org for that show.
You are all most welcome! Please stop by the Deadvids chat room to fully participate in the interview discussion. For more information, please check out info on the next show here:

I miss SF, My sister just saw Neil Young play a little solo show in oakland and then hung out with his son Ben. I got to see him play 14 shows straight warming up for a Europe tour before I left SF in a little bar where I used to play, It was really low pro, he used a fake band name, and only about 100 tix were sold for each show.
I keep forgetting to ask Twirl where it went....
cc and thanks for thinking of us if you could please have a word with bob and phil and ask them to bring further to europe i would be eternally grateful.
I could get ALOT of people there :)
By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity -- another man's I mean.
