I was listening to Sirius 32 and they were playing the 6/24/73 show from Portland, Oregon.

The url on Dead.Net for the show is:

I noticed something not right in the setlist early on, I tuned in at 11:13 (central time), just in time for Mexicali Blues, but I don't think they could have played:

Half Step
You Ain't Woman Enough
El Paso
Stella Blue
Greatest> Bertha

That's what Dead.Net shows as the start of set one, but there's no way they could have played that many tunes in the first 13 minutes.

I wasn't paying too close attention to the set until I realized that Jack Straw was playing and it wasn't listed in the set list on at all. I cross reference the set list during the Sirius live shows because I can't wait to find out what the next song is and this way I don't have to be in suspense!

They played Jack Straw before Sugaree. That is for certain. Anything before Sugaree I would double check. I wasn't paying that close attention before Jack Straw...

OK, still listening to Sirius, first set complete and looks ok from Jack Straw up to the break.

Jack Straw
Race Is On
Row Jimmy
China Cat> I Know You Rider

Looks like the top half of set one on belongs in the second set.

Second Set (How it was played on Sirius)

Miss. Half Step
You Aint Woman Enough
El Paso
Stella Blue
Greatest Story>>Bertha
BIG RIVER!! (I listen to Sirius concerts everyday with opened to the date so I can see the set lists, but it's nice to have a gem played you weren't expecting!!!)
Dark Star>>Eyes>>China Doll
Sugar Magnolia

Encore: One More Saturday Night

So that was the second set.

I don't know where Promised Land fits in, possibly set one opener, I missed it. So you need to verify the opener up to Jack Straw before Sugaree.

Promised Land??
L. L. Rain
Box Of Rain
Big RxR Blues
Jack Straw Sugaree

Looks like the show will be replayed on Sirrius if you need further verification, I'll do my best to re-listen and re-submit an accurate set list, otherwise if you have the power to grab a copy from Sirius that would be best.

Next Broadcasts are:

09-03-09 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time or 09-05-09 at 3:00 a.m. Eastern Time

You only have to listen for the first half-hour or so, just up to Sugaree.

Hope this helps.

my mom was playing in a band at the time called Balafon Marimba Ensemble and they also played this show with Beausolei and Michael Doucet. if you go to wolfgang vault they have a backstage pass from this show which shows the bands that were opening.

Incomplete venue name: Broome County Arena

You have the venue listed as Broome County Arena

This place is actually:

Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena

The Dead are listed as playing Tower Theater, Upper Darby, PA on June 24, 1967. This was 1976, not 1967, as the setlist clearly indicates. There is an entry under 6/24/76, so this entry can be deleted, if the person's comment is moved over.

I realize this inverted 6>7 may be the "date bug" you refer to, but here you go anyway.

5. Monkey & The Engineer
6. Jack A Roe
7. Cassidy

9. Oh Babe, It Ain't No Lie

two shows listed for 2/3/68

The Crystal Ballroom show was on 2/3/68, the South College Gym show was on 2/4/68. The date under the 2/4/68 show listing erroneously says 2/3/68.

August 23 and August 24, 1971 shows

My friend and I attended one of these two shows at The Auditorium in Chicago. He believes it was August 24th. We made a stereo cassette tape of part of the show. The notes on my tape indicate it was August 23rd, but this could be wrong. Despite what others may have posted elsewhere, for 37 years this was the only tape available of the August 24th show, and we did not make it available to anyone else before 1996. Any tapes circulating are copies of this tape.

Neither of the set lists corresponds exactly to what is on our tape. Since I am not certain which date it is, and it is possible we might have not taped all of the beginning of the concert, and definitely missed the ending (an usher demanded our cassette recorder when he found out what we were doing), it is confusing, but the tape indicates these songs were played at least in this order. Since a new August 24th tape is now available, having been rescued from the Godchaux's houseboat, and the August 23rd soundboard tape surfaced as well, could someone fix these set lists? Here is what is on my tape:

Mr. Charlie
El Paso
Next Time You See Me
Me and Bobby McGee
Cumberland Blues
Big Boss Man
Got No Chance to Lose Her
Promised Land
China Cat Sunflower/I Know You Rider
Casey Jones
Quadlibet for Tenderfeet
Bird Song
Some drumming from the space jam
Not Fade Away/Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad

Set list is wrong. The second set opens with CC Rider then China Cat Sunflower then I Know You Rider. Source: recording from show

oh, and:

allows you to search by state, dates, years alone, so if you kind of remember which years you was touring, you can get a pretty good idea of the shows you saw and where. that is, if like me, you never really kept stubs, and have a spotty memory from some years...

another cool feature, is you can search by song title, so if you are SURE you saw some song, but can't remember where, you might be able to pin it down. that can be a bit more troublesome, because you have to know the just exactly perfect title of the song.

far as I know, 5/5/78 was not only the only show ever played in Hannover, NH, but the only show the Grateful Dead ever played in New Hampshire.

if I am wrong about that, apologies, -- someone, PLEASE let me know.

matter of fact, far as I know, the Grateful Dead played in EVERY state of the good o'l US of A.
