- In 1995, the Grateful Dead played the Riverport Amphitheater in Maryland Heights, MO. The Summer of Death tour wasn't over yet. Several people were injured the night before at a campground. A thunderstorm sent everyone scurrying for cover. Too many people crowded onto an elevated deck and it collapsed.

This was a great place to experience the dead. I caught five shows there; 77, 81, 82, 83, 85.
I loved the outdoor shows, no echo. I could almost picture the notes skipping off over the hills, running free.
I'm sure they are still out there; frollicking in the morning dew.

Sullivan Stadium

And to top it off, the Sullivan Stadium show in '89 on the same date was the first show I attended! Though I had no idea it was called that, it was and always will be Foxboro Stadium to me. :-)

Oxford Plains Speedway - Oxford, Maine July 2 1988

The only regrets I have in life are those things that I did not do. The Oxford Plains Speedway shows are at the top of the list. And the fact that today happens to be the first day I look at this “Today in the history of GD” and it just so happens to be on that fateful day in ‘89. I was supposed to go, had a ticket, was ready and waiting. This was to be my first Dead show. My older cousin got me a ticket, as well as one for my older sister who was to go as my ‘babysitter’ since I was only 13; this was the only way my parents would let me go. To make a long story short my sister made the decision not to go (that B*tch!). Anyway, I had to wait till the following summer to see them for the first time. I have always been upset about this since they were phenomenal shows. (I haven’t let my sister forget it either, and she now regrets it as well! lol) I was thankful that my neighbor was able to get me the tapes of the show within a week but …..the dead were never allowed to come back to Maine, and I feel that I missed something really special. So, I hope you all who had the good fortune to attend it treasure your memories because from everything I’ve heard (tapes and personal stories) it was definitely one to go down in the history books of great shows. Cheers!

Thanks Aud!

Just thought I'd remind folks here that Aud's doing this because she rocks.
