It was a good show but the Dyland songs seemed a bit rehearsed which of course they were. It was nice to see them finally together...a great moment in history.
Great show. Lots of fun in spite of the brutal heat. My first Dylan show.
My friend called me up who I went to Alpine 87 with and said he had an extra ticket if I could drive him and his brother to the show at JFK, on the road again.
Hot day, long show, tons of fun.
I remember after the show waiting for the lots to clear taking a walk with my friend around the lots and we could not stop singing and laughing the whole time going JOEY!!!! JOEY!!!!!
When we arrived back at the car his brother had melted into the asphalt next to my car, we extracted from the lot and off to Giants for the next show. Nice summer.
THIS GD&BD 1987 SHOW WAS NOT THE LAST JFK SHOW! No no no. The last* JFK show was 2 years later almost to the date & it was a GD show: 07-07-1989 (w/Bruce Hornsby opening). Released as Crimson White & Indigo. No Dylan in 1989. The month, the venue and relative close time period makes many people get this confused. JFK still hosted events from 1987 to 1989 including the first Philadelphia appearance of the Gilmour, Mason, Wright version of Pink Floyd reunion "Momentary Lapse of Reason" tour just a few months after this show in 1987 that we are commenting on here (as well as U2 in '87 and Human Rights Now & the Monsters of Rock tours in '88). NOTE:* setlist sites may show JFK as a venue in 1993 for Lollapalooza etc BUT that is not an accurate name. That venue was basically the vacant dirt space that once held the actual structure of JFK stadium. JFK was knocked down by then. Anyway enough of that...
This was a great hot day in the summer of 1987 @ the Ol JFK. JFK stadium parking lot was always our hangout of choice for all concerts in Phila Sports Complex (Spectrum, JFK, Veterans Stadium). The site of the former JFK is pretty much the site of the current Eagles football stadium (Lincoln Financial Field aka The Link). This day was an explosion of parking lot hangout events, of course. Shish-kebabs, burgers, chicken grilling on coals; cold beverages; racks of clothing on hangers for sale etc... the bizarre bazaar was in town.
We went straight up front for the GD as the afternoon/evening light was still going. About 10-30 yards from stage. Waved to Bob W & he nodded. You could really make out all the facial expressions & communications between band members. I did not realize at the time (because I was so into the music & fun of the show) that the GD played one long set that functioned like their "normal" 2 set format. I remember strongly the following Dylan set tunes: Tangled Up, Joey, Watchtower & Serve Somebody. Dylan reportedly had to be coaxed on stage to perform because the man who discovered him, John Hammond II, passed away on this day. So he was a bit distressed. I loved the overall sound of GD fused w/BD. Petty & the HBs did a great job too the year before from the video / audio I heard (never saw them live). I started to "get" Dylan (finally) after this show. Many do not understand. But after this tour Bob really changed his approach to set lists & live performance. After the garagey guitar 1988-90 era w/GE Smith on gtr he then morphed into the Tony Garnier on bass (still!) era & onward continuing the never ending tour! The highlight of later Bob for me is the Tony Garnier, Charlie Sexton, Larry Campbell & David Kemper (of JGB fame) line up near the turn of the century. Wow. Great band.
