How could this show be a protest to the Jackson State killings when they didn't occur until the 14th and 15th of May 1970? I would assume this show would be a response to Kent State which happened May 4th, and not the May 14th and 15th murders (unless the Dead has access to precognition or some type of a time machine). hmmm...
True that Doc and Son opened. Also, there was a mime who did his thing between sets, accomapnied by Jerry, TC and Mickey just playinig to his groove.
I was there, a freshman in college, seen them before in Miami '68, but now primed and ready and chemically prepared.
The dead were at soldier field this night. Two gigs listed for same night.
Should be 6/18/1993
Perhaps that is why the setlist is not listed?
This show is listed as Veterans Memorial Hall in Berkely. It was actually Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Columbus, Ohio.
Here is the ticket stub:
correction to the previous post I made on Jan. 17, 2010 > june-30-74 WAS the Springfield show...(sorry), the next listed show on July 21 is a California venue... ARE THERE NO RECORDS OF THE ST. PAUL, MN SHOW?

The 1968 Stony Brook gig mentioned above occurred on Saturday 4th May 1968 - ads and reviews in the SB Statesman magazine - only support mentioned was The Incredible String Band but Sarjo01 indicated there were other bands on earlier - makes sense if the Dead did indeed come on around 1am as the gig kicked off at 8PM...
Regarding Deadathoner who said:
> SUNY Stony Brook, Saturday, October 16th 1971 is missing from the 1971 listings. I have the ticket stub. It was a great concert. Authenticate it, if you must, just don't leave it out.
Well, I've been through all the issues of the Statesman for the period and they have no ads or reviews for this - and they WOULD have had if it had taken place on that date - no, they have listed The Mothers of Invention for Oct 16 in the gym, and the next issue after that date had a photo report on that gig so it took place OK.
However, that leaves the ticket stub for which I cannot account...
