Bertha ; Mexicali Blues ; Loser ; Black Throated Wind ; They Love Each Other ; Beat It On Down The Line ; Deal ; El Paso ; Row Jimmy ; Greatest Story Ever Told ; China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider ; Around And Around

From memory Phil Lesh and Ned Lagin played "Seastones" during the interval between the sets. it was different. Source of the information me - I was there.
this happens a lot from time to time. Just ask Bob.
i promise ihavent sent my comment twice!!
i allow myself to pose this rather indiscreet question.what happening? the band playing the "promised land" which by an innocent writer was interpreted as "the terminal zone"(pretty big difference)or did they come back after they allready played on a semi disassembeled stage to play a second last song with feeling......i am confused,but as this was a GD concert i would be happy to have seen it anyway...or was the writer dozed by iresponsible social elements?
God, I always dreamed of this happening.... Wish I Were There, texasdragonfly!
"If the forms of this world die, which is more real, the me that dies or the me that's infinite? Can I trust my habitual mind, or do I need to learn to look beneath those things?"
Some would say that the band came back out for 1 more song after a good share of the stage had been dis-assembled. So many fans just wouldn't leave. They played "The Promised Land" This is based on a review written in the local Omaha newspaper the next day. The reviewer didn't get the tile right but he called the song "The Terminal Zone" and described the situation basically as I described, with the writer's addition the the band came back out to play one last song "with feeling". I was at that show and hasily remember bits and pieces of what was described.
Soldier Field show listed show as June 17, 1993 - should be June 18, 1993 with this set list:
Hell In A Bucket, Sugaree, Walkin' Blues, Stagger Lee, Queen Jane Approximately, Row Jimmy, The Music Never Stopped Box Of Rain, Iko Iko, Playin' In The Band-> Uncle John's Band-> Playin' In The Band Reprise*-> Drums, Jam-> All Along The Watchtower-> China Doll-> Turn On Your Love Light, E: Liberty (according to archive.org)
Wrong city: The page for this show says they played The Cheetah in Santa Monica on this date. There were at least two Cheetah clubs in the country and on 6/12/67 they most likely played The Cheetah in New York City. There's a "recently discovered" poster for this show (supposedly from the "first roadie of the GD") at Vintageconcertposters.com that gives the address as 53rd & Bdwy - this is NYC. This also makes sense since the previous show was in NYC at the Cafe au Go-Go.
on January 12, 2008 Sirius satellite radio played the October 26, 1972 show. here is the set list: Promised Land, Sugaree, me and Bobby McGee, Don't Ease Me In, Mexicali Blues, Bird Song,Big River, Tennessee Jed, Beat it on Down the line, Brown Eyed Women, El Paso, China Cat Sunflower/ I know you Rider, Casey Jones.
Second set: Playing in the Band/ Deal, Me and my Uncle, Broke down Palace, Truckin/ Dark Star / Sugar Magnolia, Sing me back home. One more Saturday night.
