Attendees of this show
Great set list but this arena was the pits.
was I the only fan that liked Push/Shove?
yeah Byrne was the pits but some killer shows.
“The Omnipotent Grateful Dead!”
My second show......Terrapin out of Space was a great place for this song. Sorry I didn't get to hear it more often there.
DKNJ: My first show.
The last ever Dancin', Peggy-O is sublime.Jerry rips it on Mexicali, of all things and cranks up the heat on a sick Jack Straw> Deal combo.
The 2nd set is a little clumsy (Tons of Steel?) Post space Terrapin is cool, listen to the Space lead-in its awesome.
The "Saint" intro is not saintly at all.
Not what I was hoping for after a two yr absence but from attending shows , I actually thought the following night was much tighter and the energy was higher. This could be contributed to my extreme uncomfortability due to it also being my first show completely sober & having a chaperone (sp).
Was The Spectrum or Pittsburg Civic Auditorium any better? I mean outside of Hampton what east coast venues are really any better?
And hey johnnyg I liked Push too and never understood why they shelved it Check Out My Orignal Music at myspace.com/salaversano
Dancin into franklins...........What a great opener.
Terrapin sticks has the highlight for me.
There were massive gate crashers outside due to Jerry on a local radio staition....WNEW.....Scott M. asked Jerry about why Dark Star is not played that often.....and Jerry's reply was "I think we'll play that tonite" Sooooooooo here comes the gate crasher!
Bryne was a good place when it first opened.............Security got really bad after a few shows there.
Some deadhead named Adam was found dead along the NJ turnpike .........It took yeras to find out but security at Bryne killed him. Like 9 security guards were charged for manslaugter.
My first show. Highlights for me were Franklin's, Rooster (that was one of my faves back then for some reason - I was wearing out Dead Set in general), Peggy-O, Push-Shove, Deal and Terrapin.
I remember before the show outside there was a guy selling T-Shirts that contained the slogan "It's Worth the Trip," and he was shouting, "Grateful Dead Spring Tour '87 T-Shirts! ... It's Worth The Chirp!" We kept imitating him.
It *was* indeed a trip experiencing our first show. We were pretty tame though - we were young and one of our dads brought us. Things would get a lot crazier over the next 6 or so years when I went to alotta more shows. But this one was good and fun and turned me on for life so yeah it's special to me.

This was my 1st shows at the Byrne. Really, this is one of, if not the worst east coast venue, but man did the boys often rock this house. There r a shit load of heads in jersey, possible more than any other state in the union.
