First Show--4/7/85

I would love to chat w/anyone who ever attended this show. It was my first--pretty hot huh? Honestly, I didn't remember too much of it other than I had a blast. From here on in it's pretty much what my life has circled around. As I stated, I would love to and could probably talk forever about this show and many thereafter. Hope to here from ya. Bill

I would also love a copy of this show as well. When trading tapes where bigger than it is now, I was only able to obtain part of the 2nd set. I've been to some doozies. First Here Comes Sunshine in Tempe brought back. Fun show too.

east coast vibe

hi. i, too, was at this set of shows. jerry had a pretty bad sore throat and did not sing that much. i remember there being lots of fighting in the parking lot and that weird east coast vibe. a bottle was thrown through the air at one point and hit some guy pretty badly. i'd give these philly shows an average to slightly below rating.

Camped in Spectrum parking lot

Camped out in the car in the parking lot for all three nights. There was some fierce acid going around that parking lot, I don't remember the shows much at all. I remember going into downtown Philly one day for cheesesteaks at Pat's Steaks at 9th and Passyunk. The third morning I woke up in the car feeling so skanky, I will never forget, we went over to the Hilton hotel next over next to the sports complex for the best hot breakfast ever, dressed all scuzzy and tripped-out deadhead style. I will never forget those three days of hippie paradise.

Bob Seger song comes to mind - Walk into a restaurant, people want to know if your a woman or a man...
