ah

I was thinking this coincided with those Capitol Theater shows where Jerry had no voice. But his playing made up for it.

According to Dead Base 95

The GD did the Capitol Theatre on 11/24/78 and their next show was at the Fronton in Miami on 12/12/78. While it is possible they hung around NYC for a Thankgiving holiday and then did their first ever run starting on or around 12/1 it is unlikely.

It is pretty much well-agreed that the Dead had their first run in the Garden proper (not the basement Felt Forum) on 1/7-8/79. It would be unusual for them to go back to the Garden that quickly, especially as they had to sell a lot of tickets very quickly -- something they were not doing around this time (listen to Jerry address the crowd at Rupp Arena on 4/21/78. In fact, it is curious timing for them to even attempt the Garden at this time. It seems like about 18 months too early. Perhaps they got favorable terms in their contract from the Garden through Jon Scher (I think that was his name).

Where this stub came from is another matter. It would seem to prove there was a show. Who would go through the trouble of making a counterfeit? Did the shows get rescheduled? That could account for it.

Anybody else want to chime in?

Madison Square Garden 12/1/78 Cant find it in the list of shows. I was looking because I would have been there at that time.

I listened to the Europe 72 box set and the 1st set on your site does not match and is missing songs. In listening to the recording the songs are seamless. Correct setlist is on the CDs
