Attendees of this show
I remember the fireworks at the end of set one.
That's about all!
Glad to be back on the long road home.
As I saw it they were exploding from within Billy's drums! Not possible you say.
Well, the wall of sound was swaying like a "ship of fools", and I couldn't tell how Bob Weir could play that well with only one arm!
This was to be a three show run, but they just couldn't get unloaded and down to Jersey after Watkins Glenn.
Also, Phil was at the sound board during the Band.
I remember the fireworks too, but thought they were both on stage and in the sky. Jersey City was pretty raw, but the show was fun. I remember a Rheingold beer sign, all illuminated. The Band played a good opening set, I wish I could remember what they played. I think the crowd was restless for the DEad and wanted them to hurry off.
I must have gone both nights. The song list is VERY familiar. I clearly remember the Tennessee Jed. That was the first time Jerry "looked at me"!
This was my first concert after enlisting in the Air Force, basic training, and tech school. I probably had the shortest hair in the place. I had a great time. It's a REAL good thing no AP's strolled by my location as I "partook" of what was "partakable".
My first show, I can only remember the glow in the dark frisbees floating throughout the stadium
This was my second show and I always consider it to be the best show I ever saw. Garcia was very animated that night and I just remember hearing every note he played a clear as a bell! The fireworks were set off when the band went back into the Playing the Band after an amazing jam. I also remember Loose Lucy being very cool, as it is the first time I ever heard the song.
The set lists from 73 rock
I remember my pals and myself staring up at the fireworks long after they stopped. The Bear must have been there!
all the bay terrace & bay ridge folks were there... what a nite in the stadium and parking lot Weasel was 15 and in charge of the biggest party i ever saw
