Walton was twirling on the side of the stage. 1/2 the Arena was closed off making for a more intimate venue on this closing show of the West Coast tour. Great show. Much better than Pauley two nights earlier.
The closed off arena was pretty cool. However, they do not like nude hot tubing in San Diego.
Rumor had it, Weir got arrested after this show.
This was the show where a head was beaten to a bloody mess by security because they "walked arm in arm side by side towards the stage in order to remove the crowd from the front standing without permission." Mickey Hart leaped on a guard after the song's end and started pounding on his head like a money gone wild until they broke up the bashing. Law Suit bummer of all time. My friend (an aiko devil) literally bent the metal on the backside pounding it in frustration as we watched the carnage....bent metal! (never mind, hong kong).
keep your character, enjoy living, share your fortune,
