Robert- my 2nd show. met Phil and he took my friends and myself to the show. backstage passes. all access did not even exist. what a nice guy. made me a fan forever. quite a second show too.
My very first Dead show at 18 years old I was in college in Souix Falls SD. Drove on over to Iowa with friends and bought a ticket for a whole $5. Stayed at the now de-funked Parsons College.
Me and my buddies wandered into the end of the sound check. Phil was on the edge of the stage holding court talking about this and that and I do remember a few comments about and up and coming artist called......Michael Jackson as strange as that sounds. Garcia kept to himself they told us he was sick with a shitty cold and bumming about Pig Pen. Keith was noodling on the piano. As for the show, "I had a real good time" from what I remember!! Anyone have a tape of this show, have never found a full version.
i was a senior in high school and 4 of us drove to iowa city for the weekend and one of our friends , who was a freshman at the university of iowa said he had tickets for us. when we got there he did not have tickets.
i walked over and stood in line at around noon. they said that they would start selling tickets at 2:00 p.m. with a limit of 2 per person. ( we needed 5 ) the rest of my buddies were back at the dorm drinking beer. i stood in line and got 3 tickets. when i came back my friends drew straws for the other 2 tickets . but everyone ended up going to the show.
this was my first grateful dead show and it was great, although the iowa fieldhouse was not the greatest venue, sound wise.
11 weeks later, on mother's day 13 of us went from davenport to des moines to see the show at the state fair grounds. another great and wild day!
Long show with long jams...whew ! Thank You !
