Attendees of this show
I remember cafeteria trays with paper nutcups being offered to the early rows, until they ran out.
Saw the Dead several times in Philly throughout the 70's.
The way I remember this show ending was during the
closing bars of One More Saturday Night a long haired hippie
chick jumped onstage and ran over and hugged Garcia. They
both went down in a heap as the lights went dark and the crowd erupted. I don't remember the encore as I thought the show ended right there. Anyway, it was something I will
always remember, not the typical ending to a Dead show.
They had the big PA and from beginning to end it lasted about
five hours, (including half time distortion). Also saw them during the summer a year or two later for three consecutive nights at the Tower Theatre. Small venue-great shows, Miickey Hart back in fold.
The best China Rider ever!
