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.
I'm positive that the boys did Satisfaction at this show. It was my girlfriends first show. She was a UCLA student living on campus at the time. I met her in her dorm room. She had borrowed a bunch of Dead studio albums so that she would know what to expect. I told her that it wasn't going to work.
She also didn't understand why I wanted to get to Pauley Pavillion early. She then learned about the show before the show. The reason that I remember Satisfaction is that she was amazed that they were doing another bands song as part of the encore. Like I said, it was her first show.
There were many more after. We were married for 23 years and our oldest daughters middle name is Cassidy. Obviously, after a weekend at Ventura and New Years Eve that year, she got it.
have a stub for this date in madison square garden,and did not see it listed......"nothing left to do but---> smile...."
Paul Ossian Donna sang a Loretta Lynn cover of "You Ain't Woman Enough To Take my Man" This show seemed to be 4-6 hours long, Was it just tuning?
I was quite sure that the shows first set started with Jack Straw. Please, Check me out.
I verified with another attendee that the Dead played "dancing in the streets" second set.
I believe that the set started with Doggone. I was in the first row and it certainly WAS NOT scarlet begonias.
