If you've never heard the 1/10/79 Dark Star, immediately seek out the audience tape as the boards still don't exist to this day...that's one holy grail missing for sure! And the space madness after the drums is one of a kind!
Worse copy ever ,of course. Up in the nose bleeds but I tried .The taping situation improved dramaticlly as time went on but nothing was gonna help the droning of Donna on the St.Stephen....the end for Keith and Donna was surely near.
A Great Dark Star and 3 Chuck Berry Tunes and The Music Never Stopped is Epic!!Rogue
Being from Long Island, maybe I am a little biased, but I thought the boys were always great at this venue.
Out of the 100 shows I attended from 78 through 84, I remember this show as one of the very best.
To say I was psyched would be an understatement. I had the last row of the first section on the floor. Everyone stood on their seats for the entire show. (later learned that this was not a good habit and certainly no way to dance). I was very lucky to get my Dark Star early I know a lot of people who waited a long time.
I agree that the Dead were always great at he coliseum.
This was the show that got me started. And it's been a Long Strange Trip.

i for one was laying on the seats listing to DARK STAR tremendous night i don't know if there was any better show after this night.

made it down to about the 15th row right center on the floor, lookin happily lost, and offered to burn one with some heads with seats who quickly asked if i needed a seat cause there buddy had to go upstairs couldne handle the floor SHAZAAAAAMMMM
if the thunder dont get you than the lightning will
i enjoyed the entire second set, and the music touched and moved me in ways all night I WANTED MORE and I wanted to find out where they were playing sooooooon, that seemed to start a pattern for me
gone are the days we stopped to decide, where we should go we just drive
