Attendees of this show
I remember this being a HOT, weird show. The security was absolutely dumbfounded. There was a Jehovah's Witness convention going on at the same time as the Dead breezed into town. So on the hottest day of the year there were the Jehovah Witnesses(in white shirts, ties and long pants) trying to hand out copies of the Watchtower to hippy girls twirling in sundresses, some with underwear, some without. It was also a good show. The next day, we drove to Memphis to see Graceland.
I remember that skeleton, riding the Harley in GDTRFB, and the skeleton hand beckoning at the end! Hot and humid in KY. A day before the show, a friend decided to join our crew, and her ticket was in a different area, so I took it because she was too weirded out to be separated from us, it being her first show. I assumed I could just find them after we all got it (usually you could find someone to stub you down), but the tic I had was in the bleacher section of Cardinal Stadium, and they wouldn't let you travel to the other 3/4 of the stadium! Security people were not good freaks...so I spent the show away from my peeps and making new friends. Super funky KY Jam....nightfall of diamonds! SOTM began right at sundown, and it finally cooled off, it was dark by the end of that song.
miss all of you, life sure was different back then.
We had 6th row Philzone...needless to say I didn't move from that spot the whole show
