Awesome Show

This was an awesome show, for starters got front row seats thru the GD tickets sales. I just remember the Shakedown was the best I have heard. I may have been impaired but I swear my friend dave and I yelled out shakedown when they were tuning and Jerry looked directly at us and smiled and they just started right into the song. Man it still gives me goosebumps to this day.

I'm a local to Pittsburgh,

I'm a local to Pittsburgh, and a young dead head. I was just 3 when Jerry died, and I finally got to see furthur live for the first time two weeks ago. My dad wasn't into the dead, and none of my friends were growing up. The dead fell into me out of no where years ago on a local radio station when I was 13 and I think you know the rest haha. But thank you all so much for writing about this show. Reading all of your comments make me get a sense of feel for this show. And the fact that it was in the iglo makes it all even better. If anyone has any great stories or anything interesting they want to share about this show please tell me!!! I love hearing stories about the dead, but when it comes to the dead and pittsburgh I REALLY wanna hear it haha.

What a Day

My friend Steve and I started the day in Penn Station, NY walking on to the Amtrak train headed for Pittsburgh at 6:30am. As soon as we hit jersey the bar car opened and the smoking car with all the other heads in it and business people turned into a fiesta for the next 5 hours until the train stopped in Altoona, PA. About 10 cops walked on and escorted two heads off the train (we later saw in the lobby of the Hyatt this night, they made the show) for drinking underage, gee who was serving them.

Once we checked into the Hyatt, we headed over to the lot to see what was shaken. I bumped into a friend that I rode with from Alpine to Riverbend one year and balloons were free, YIPPEEEEE!!!!

We just got in before the mayhem outside started and could see what was going down through the glass, looked at each other headed for the bar and got our minds ready for the show.

Brown Eyed - Queen Jane - Tennessee Jed - Music Never set the tone after a slow start to the first set.

The Second set was a monster - they had the red stage lights on in a dark arena if memory serves for most of the second set. Shakedown here - Carrier Dome 84 and Berlin were the three best I was in attendance for. Great show with one of my favorite touring buddies.
