Wow! Great shows!

We had so much fun at these shows. The "in the Dark" had been released the day before and they played the West LA just like the album. That was the only time I got to see them do that.

Hometown!!

We had front row tickets for these shows which was our hometown venue, being from Lynchburg. I had gone to see a buddy who was working at the local ticket outlet to see if the boys were going to play their TBA dates in Roanoke. "No word" was the word...I told Tony I would be back tomorrow. When tomorrow came I checked again and he confirmed that they were indeed coming. Not only were they booked, but someone in Jersey at Ticketmaster had left access to the tickets open so they were on sale, five days before they were supposed to be available! Checking on the best seats available he let me know section B row 1 - center stage!!
I bought eight tix for each show!! As I was leaving the mall, some guy was running through the parking lot in a suit. Half joking I yelled to get your Dead tickets before they turn off the access and he confirmed that was his intention!!!

Both of these shows were awesome! The music was on, the parking lot was great with views of the Blue Ridge in the back ground and being so close to home was like knowing everyone in the building....would love to see back and play in Row-a-no-KEY (as the pronounced it on the hotline)!

Still Dead after all these years!

truble ahead...

One of the Old Schoolers flew down from Boston for this one. We drove to Vinton and stayed at a cool campground with a water slide and has a very trippy afternoon before the show. I remember meeting some cool Heads there. Don't remember how we got to the show but we did...greeted by a school bus offloading about 60 cops...yikes! Luckily no worries there, but Amy and Rachael were "practicing for tour" which meant some kind of sobriety pledge....which amounted to the other three of us being derelicts in their eyes!?! They were sort of on their own trip I guess. Something about McDonalds playing Workingman's Dead wasn't as cosmic for them.

The show was off the hook. West L.A. Fade Away was a highlight and I can still hear these little cymbals that maybe Mickey was clicking on. Morning Dew!

After the show we went to some hotel to hang with Wayne who had been on tour since RFK the year before...he didn't still have the chandelier crystals in his hair but he had been around.

Not sure how we got back to the campground but those two girls weren't right.
