awsome and very freakin hot it was.
during steve miller's set the power went out on fly like an eagle and all you could hear was the drummer still keeping beat. yes it was very hot. we were about 10 rows back from the stage when the day started and i remember looking back at the crowd during the dead's set and thinking i haven't ever seen this many people groovin' together. oh yeah, there was a girl wearing a flag walking past us
steve miller came out to sing midnight hour but first verse had mic. problems
I was right in front of Jerry this hot hot hot day/night He had that huge blue t shirt and some trippy pants and his Nike Air shoes on..He was huge I remember thinking wow he has bulked up again, SAD. I liked the music it was the last show of the Summer tour..Sadly Jerry had an enlarged heart and fluid in his lungs..They cancel the Fall tour ..But I was going to U of Wyoming and there first show's back @ Mcnichols Arena in Denver 12/2-3/1992 I was at these shows as well.. healthier and thinner a lively Jerry..I think he lost 65 lbs. It was a real breath of fresh life into the band..I miss these summer shows like Buckeye and Alpine and Deer Creek I am a Mid-West Dead Head...Jay
You know how Saint starts with that big, loud note? Just as it sounded, this guy near me fell s-l-o-w-l-y backward straight as a board, onto his back. That Saint intro literally knocked him right off of his feet. It was pretty funny (he was fine).
I think I remember the girl wearing the flag the above poster mentioned. Sadly, they didn't play U.S. Blues, so she didn't wave it around.
I remember thinking this one was pretty sluggish, but, hey, there was a Midnight Hour and a West LA in the 2nd set, which was kind of a cool way to close out the Summer Tour. Fall would be canceled, but a svelte Garcia would return in time to spread some Holiday cheer...
I don't know that I would say sluggish but perhaps kinda like the sound of really thick air, really nice comfortable groove.
Time sure has slipped away. This show had some good tunes. It was hot...I lost my shoes in the crowd...LOL. I was pretty close to the stage. This was the moment I remember noticing Bobby had developed a thin spot on the back of his head.
Show's low moments:
Steve Miller...I yawned the entire performance...the power outage couldn't have come at a worse moment.
Some guy near me was playing a flute along Touch of Grey during the show opener...it didn't gel too good with the song and I could see other heads making faces. He was an older looking lad...looked kind of like one of the die-hard type fans who have toured for years and eaten most of their meals from a dumpster...you know what I mean...all leathered up with some falafel in his beard.
this show is a keeper: we had a carful going down from canada, but this time my pal tammy and i were definitely going to stay together and experience a show. lo and behold i lost her. we were tripping on some kind of wonderful. we found each other, lost each other again, found each other... somehow, we kept on uniting through this sea of beautiful, grateful faces. it was so amazing!!
oh, and i remember the pee bathroom in the bushes everybody was using. it was really smelly near the end of the night.
whoever made the falafels out of that veedub: yummy!!
terrapinT-I tried my hardest, but my car broke down for this show. I had tickets and didn't make it. Too bad.
Never made it into the show. :( On the trip from the Bus to the Lake, the traffic was ridiculous, so my friends and I decided we couldn't cause much trouble starting our partying early. So we broke into the bottle of El Toro tequila. (Hey, we were Soph/Jun in HS) Anyways, my memories from the day include drinking El Toro tequila from waxed Wendy's cups, getting to the field and passing out and puking my guts out. Fast forward two hours. I wake up with a pillow and a jug of water that my friends had traded my ticket for. I got up and went to an area right outside the music center and there was a group of about a hundred fans harassing mounted policemen trying to get through the gates. I just stood there and enjoyed the music. Oh well, maybe next year I'll see them for the first time.....(see BL '93)
