I dont remember this version of the shows

I thought there were so many dead heads with no tickets and that is why the band said heck we gonna give this show to our tribe so we gonna move it to a bigger location so EVERYONE can attend the show. I only remember one red rocks and one Mcnichols but man we are taking long ago strange trips.

2nd night - more than "Looks" Like Rain

It reeaallly rained hard and the shows had to be moved. Bummer. But ticket problems were fixed for many, including myself.
My first Dead show ever was the night before and now I had my mojo working. I told my cynical friend Tom that they were going to open with Shakedown Street. He shnarffed at my lack of tour experience, telling me they NNNeeever open with Shakedown Street. Lesson learned early on - never say never at a Grateful Dead concert! We lit one up together as the band laid down the opening chords...

Another great show. The band missed not a beat by moving indoors. I'm sure they were all just as bummed as we were that the show had to be moved and Bobby expressed his appreciation for the crew a couple of times from the stage.
