Shoreline 6/89

One of the best runs Ive attended. It was sad after the fact to think that it was the last time I would see Brent play live. Many good memories. - Eric

- In 1967, the Grateful Dead played the fairgrounds in Moneterey, CA as part of the Monterey Pop Festival.

- In 1974, the Grateful Dead played Freedom Hall in Louisville, KY. One of the best shows of an excellent year. Good Eyes>China Doll, Other One>It's A Sin.

- In 1976, the Grateful Dead played the Capitol Theater in Passaic, NJ.

- In 1983, the Grateful Dead played a very good show at the SPAC in Saratoga Springs, NY.

Today is June 17. On this date in Deadhead history:

- In 1966, the Grateful Dead played the Veterans Hall in San Jose, CA.

- In 1972, the Grateful Dead played the Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood, CA. This is Pigpen's final show.

- In 1975, Jerry Garcia Band and Kingfish played the Winterland Arena in San Francisco as part of the benefit for the family of Bob Fried.

- In 1976, the Grateful Dead played the Capitol Theater in Passaic, NJ.

- In 1988, the Grateful Dead played the Met Center in Bloomington, MN.

- In 1991, the Grateful Dead played Giants Stadium in E. Rutherford, NJ. If we can't agree on the 16th, I am sure we can all agree on this one being a good show. Eyes of the World opened the show. Bruce teases Dark Star throughout the entire show. The Dark Star Jam> Truckin> New Speedway> Uncle John> Jam is very good. (and I hated the night before SO much I didn't go. damn.)

Today is June 16. On this date in Deadhead history:

- In 1974, the Grateful Dead played the State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, IA. One of the best Eyes of the World.

- In 1985, the Grateful Dead finished up a good three-night run at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA.

- In 1991, the Grateful Dead played Giants Stadium in E. Rutherford, NJ. I thought this show was a complete piece of crap and have rued that day ever since as I met all the guys from Phish at a rest stop on the Jersey turnpike on the way, who were telling me to follow them to their gig and skip the GD. Should’ve!!!

- In 1993, the Grateful Dead played Freedom Hall in Louisville, KY.

I missed my birthday show twice despite best efforts to go, in '72 and again in '76 (when they did the Dew as the friggin' encore, much to my dismay!). was finally going to get one fall '95 at my hometown Spectrum. damn.

What a great week, several times....

I went to the Ventura Fairgrounds when they played on my birthday (12th)! After the show my friends the Purpl Turtlz played on a flat bed truck, and my other friends had an ice cream cake that I had to be led to because it was a surprize and they sprayed me with silly string!! The we watched cartoons on the screen in the horse corral eating ice cream cake....I also remember the Red Rocks Shows that they played on my b-day....oh what fun we had. Met some of my bestest friends there. Nothing like a Dead show on your birthday, camping out and hanging with good people. Ahhhhhhh.

Life's too short to be blue...

Today is June 15. On this date in Deadhead history:

- In 1967, the Grateful Dead played the Straight Theater in San Francisco.

- In 1968, the Grateful Dead played the Fillmore East in New York City.

- In 1976, the Grateful Dead played the Beacon Theater in New York City. The second set has a nice run of Stephen>NFA>D>Stella. The FOTD>Dancin>Wheel>Sugar Mag>Scarlet>SSDD is great as well.

- In 1985, the Grateful Dead played the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA. Garcia's voice is pretty froggy, but the music is great. Good China>Rider, nice Terrapin and the transition from Space into The Wheel is beautiful.

- In 1990, the Grateful Dead played the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA. H>S>F to open the show and a nice Scarlet>Fire to open the second set. This is one of the better shows of the summer, and it was a pretty damn good summer tour.

- In 1992, the Grateful Dead played Giants Stadium in E. Rutherford, NJ.

- In 1993, the Grateful Dead played Freedom Hall in Louisville, KY.

- In 1995, the Grateful Dead played Franklin County Field in Highgate, VT. A total fucking disaster. A year after a really nice experience at Highgate (nice weather, casual atmosphere, decent show), tour rats decided that paying money for tickets was for suckers. Gates got ripped down, port-a-potties got knocked over (with people in them), nitrous tanks were everywhere, dogs running loose....a total nightmare.
