went w/ my then fiance and his friend. we made it onto the field of the "Cheerio Bowl" (aka rfk stadium) and up to the front. it was insanely hot! I had the BEST klondike bar ever made from some guy selling them out of a milk crate on the field....mmmmm...... :)
it's been a long strange trip since then and i'm looking forward to seeing the dead in philly 5/2/09!
My first show..
Ironically io was there the last time ANY concert was played at JFK, and guess who it was thats rightr the Grateful Dead.
They condemned the building the next day as i recall.
Regardless of the number of people that place was the shit!!
My sister brought me to this show, it was my first and the first set was awesome!! Loved Iko Iko opening! We got posters which we asked the guys we were with to hold for us. Then we got lost during set break & my sister started freaking out so we had to leave the show!! We missed the whole 2nd set but we could hear Dylan jamming with The Dead from the parking lot (which we circled many times 'till we found our car). The guys showed up and they had our posters!! Mine traveled to California & back to Buffalo and has always hung in my room where it rests today!
I was hooked!
man, was it ever hot. and another in an exhausting series of stadium dates in the sun, especially if you haven't been getting much sleep (for one reason or another).
but this was a first for me -- my buddy John actually fell ASLEEP during Terrapin and didn't wake up until Saturday Night (the song, that is), even those he was dosed.
the show was worth staying awake for, even if it was disappointing the dead only did one long extended solo set (instead of two, as with the Giant's Stadium date). weird feeling the shift to "second set songs" without the band leaving the stage for an hour...
I'd graduated from college earlier that year. Moved in with a roomie at 2nd & Carpenter. We both got new motorcycles and wanted to break them in. So we took off down Delaware Ave and ended up at JFK, when we remembered, "Oh shII, there's a show tonight." So we pulled over and got tix at the door.
My first rock concert was Dylan & The Band in 1974 at The Spectrum. So this was my second Dylan show, but my sixth (or thereabouts) Dead show.
Wandering minstrels inside the stadium, we wandered the field, met up with all manner of wonderful freakish people, and ended up way up in the stands with Pierre Robert - who was everywhere that day.
We had a high time, livin' the good life.
WHAT A SHOW..THE DAY STARTED WITH ME AND MY BUDDY PICKED UP A GIRL THAT WAS HICHIKING ON THE ATLANTIC CITY EXPRESSWAY IN A WHITE DRESS HEADING TO THE SHOW IN PHILLY....WE HUNG OUT WITH HER FOR A WHILE WHEN WE GOT TO THE PARKING LOT DRINK SOME BEERS AND SMOKING ALL TYPES OF THINGS UNTIL IT WAS THYME TO HEAD TO JFK PARKING LOT FROM THE VET PARKING LOT WHERE WE PARKED..
MEET UP WITH MY BROTHER AND HIS FRIENDS IN THE JFK PARKING LOT...THIS WAS THE DAZES BEFORE CELL PHONES SO TO CATCH UP WITH THEM WAS SHOCKING WITH ALL THE PEOPLE THERE THAT DAY.. WE SHARED SOME STORIES ABOUT THE DAY SO FAR BESIDES A COUPLE OF THOSE GLOBES THAT WERE FLOATING AROUND THAT DAY..
GOT INTO JFK RIGHT BEFORE THE BOYS STARTED OUT THEIR LONG SET AND WHAT A SET IT WAS!!!! HUNG OUT DEAD CENTER STAGE TWENTY YARDS AWAY WITH A BUNCH OF DANCIN FOOLS WHO KEEP FEEDING US ALL NITE LONG UNTIL THE TOUCH OF GREY ENCORE!!!!!!
AFTER THE SHOW WHEN WE GOT BACK TO MY FRIENDS TRUCK WE REALIZED THAT WE LEFT THE COOLER OF BEER IN THE BED.....OOH SHIT WE WERE THINKIN SOMEONE DRINK OUR BEER....BUT NO ALL OF OUR BEER WAS LEFT PLUS SOME!!!! THE PERSON NEXT TO US NEEDED A COOLER FOR THEIR BEER AND USED OURS AND LEFT US WITH SOME KYND IN RETURN!!!!!
LATER ON AFTER A COUPLE OF THAT PHILLY GAS MY BUDDY WAS STILL ON A TRIP AROUIND THE GLOBE AND COULDN'T FIND HIS WAY OUT OF THE PARKING LOT LET ALONE THE BRIDGE TO JERSEY SO I HAD TO DRIVE HIM HOME THAT NITE!!!!!!!
GOD BLESS THE GRATEFUL DEAD!!!!!!
I don't remember if it was hot at all,
It did not rain
Jerry was in his prime,
Dylan is always in his prime
He has so many primes
The two greatest events in history:
Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount
Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead
I am glad they were 2000 years apart. I would not want to have to choose which one to see.
I will NEVER forget the goose bumps over my entire body when they broke into Tangled.
First quiet, then gradually louder until Jerry started playing those all too familiar opening notes.
When Dylan started singing...I couldn't believe It was real.
All this after being on the entire tour with Dylan the summer previous.
This was my first show. During drums I thought the ground was moving up and down. Liquid !!!! Blew me away.
