Who are you? Where are you? What's up in your life?

People who attended the Egypt shows are, of course, cordially invited to post their experiences as well!

Good morning rockers!!!!

As many of you may or may not know, I am a bit of a “1971 Dead fanatic”. I have taken on a slightly ambitious project, documenting all 1971 Dead shows, the end result of which I hope will combine numerous “facts/factoids” about shows with recollections of folks who actually attended Dead shows in 1971.

In order to accomplish this, I need the help of the Dead fan community.

ALL contributions will be properly and specifically credited.

If you attended ANY shows in 1971 and have ANY recollections to share, PLEASE consider participating. Please PM me for details.

While of course I’m happy to hear from anybody who attended “classic 71 shows” such as Port Chester, Fillmore East, Harding Theater, Felt Forum, etc., I’m particularly interested in hearing from folks who may have attended lesser known, “out of the way” shows, such as:
1/21/71 Davis
1/22/71 Lane Community College
3/5/71 Oakland
4/14/71 Bucknell
4/18/71 Cortland
6/21/71 Chateau d’Herouville
8/4/71 Terminal Island
10/19/71 Northrop Auditorium
11/11/71 Atlanta
11/17/71 Albuquerque

In addition, if ANYBODY out there has “paper ephemera” related to 1971 shows, Please consider participating. I’m looking especially for:
Newspaper/print media articles
Show posters/handbills
Ticket stubs

Thanks in advance to all who participate and contribute!

Rock on,
Doc Gillespie

Coming from Egypt

Hello Marye (and anyone who can read this), how are you?
I became a Dead fan after my first show in March1992 (@ The Omni in Atlanta). I am American, but I moved to Egypt about 6+ years ago. I didn’t have the pleasure of seeing the Dead when they played @ the Pyramids, but I have the CD/DVD that came out in 2008. (If you have seen it, I love the extra footage of some of them climbing one of the pyramids ;) )

Do you know (currently) any “heads” in the Middle East or Egypt? I am doing my best to make it to the upcoming 'Fare Thee Well' shows. Are you coming? (I know, that may be a silly question ;) )

I've never been there, though some friends' family is from there originally. It sure looks like an interesting place in the travel shows!

That would be something now. More political prisoners than concert goers!
