I have the show from this date at Fillmore West, both from recording notes and Deadbase VI. Also, the 'next show' link is labeled for a show in 1970.
Previous show was Copenhagen October 8.
Appears out of sequence in the previous show/next show area - should be between Veterans Memorial Coliseum April 23, 1984 and Providence Civic Center April 26, 1984, as it does on the Shows By Years list. As it is, it appears like this:
« Nevada County Fairgrounds - September 18, 1983
California Exposition Amphitheater - June 9, 1984
There may be other inconsistencies in this area.
Have fun! And thanks!

what The heck is going on with the show list. I submit my shows, they don't show,and even if the do they say "unattended." I know I'm doing it according to your riles, bur it is not happiness" Pleas help!!!!
Guys, it is way beyond the time for the remaining members of the group to get together for another concert....The Dead. Please do this for your fans who have followed you forever.
Unfortunately you have the 15th of March shows listed twice .. and then it goes on to the 17th of March. If you go to the 17th of March it says on that page previous one 16th.. but when you go back it says 15th.. and on the general page of shows listed in 1968 it shows March 15th at Carousel listed twice.
I attended this (these) shows. And it was such a great introduction to the American Beauty songs! Super long playful renditons of Candyman, Ripple, Truckin, Brokedown Palace, etc!
But I do believe there were 2 dates at this venue, 2 days in a row. I went to both. Some details are fuzzy, but the gist of the qualities of the small flat room that they played in is vivid. There was no stage of any kind, just on the flat floor of one of the school's semi-occupied rooms, maybe a caffeteria or admin bldg lobby. I do remember they setup up against a glass paneled wall, and the folks outside could see them right their in the full lenghth window. It was a really minimal setup.
But the sets were magic and so immediate and uncommonly INTIMATE!
It was a refreshingly loose concert as was the venue/ low admission price and lots of "alternate entries" to help the poor and starving students, et al.. ...GOOD TIMES, TIMES 2
The band opened with Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" celebrating the resignation of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher earlier that day. The crowd went nuts when the heard the lyric "I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more."
Bob Dylan sat in with the Grateful Dead for Baby Blue and Desolation Row.
Thank you, and Stay In Touch!
