I remember this show falling during the same week that U of M won the basketball championship and the Hash Bash. I also remember having a great time. The vending and camping was in full swing on the premises as well as being much more peaceful than Pittsburg. I also remember watching police with video cameras going out of their way to entrap as many people as possoble.

The show itself was splendid. Nice long first set with lots of classics and an extremely well played second set. The matrix boards and AUDs I've heard confirm this.

My second show and boy what

My second show and boy what a show. Still sounds hot on the tapes too. In the parking lot Clapton never sounded so hot either. I remember at least 20 people dancing around together to some Clapton after the show. Spent all night walking around in Ann Arbor with my friend Daisy.

Just saw this and it brought back great memories...I couldn't get a ticket for the first night, but when a friend of mine asked if I wanted to volunteer at the show, I jumped. I worked the gate before the show and let in tons of people without tickets. (And yes, it did feel good!) Then I was assigned to the floor to check tickets for floor seats and was pretty liberal about letting people down. Had a blast, saw a great show and made lots of new friends that night! The next night was pretty good, too.

As a freshman at UM, you couldn't ask for a better week: bball team went to the Final Four and won the Championship, the Dead played Crisler and then Hash Bash. It was a perfect trifecta.
