I remember the water pouring

I remember the water pouring out of the grand stand creating a river in the middle of the field :) Event Horizon of a Grateful Dead show. I'm looking for a picture of this one... Blessed be !
p.s What was Phil doing during the Box of rain I remember seeing some cosmic jive on the video screens!!!

Heart of Gold Bannnnnnnnnnnnd!!!

The best Blow Away. Played this Scarlet at my wedding. And even though it's short, the Other One is super tight, into a great Wharf Rat and finishing with a Lovelite with Jerry doing the "Shine on me" chorus, a la Bobby in the 60's.

Last show ever at JFK

That Blow Away was amazing. After the 2nd set started, the staff at JFK opened the gates and left (forever), so everyone in the parking lots and the show were going in and out. I remember hearing on the local news that it was estimated that there were well over 100,000 people there by the end. I have newspaper articles and an aerial shot of the show somewhere I'll post here.

You could feel it.

I remember trying to avoid the rats in the grass while walking to the stadium from our parking area.

Our seats were in the concrete bleachers. When Mickey and Bill played drums, all of the concrete just vibrated. It made us so nervous that we ditched our seats and went down in the field.

That was the show my husband pointed out some guy by saying, "Hey, look at that guy with the long hair and tie dye, twirling." Of course I gave him a look that said 'are you crazy' and replied... which one! I know it's dumb, but we still joke about it.

AWESOME show..weird day!

it was SO hot, and i was standing directly in front of Brent at the beginning of the show when the band started tuning and then playing. He realized he forgot his infamous red cup, gets up, walks off stage, comes back with his cup, sits down and starts playing again! I was laughing my a## off.

I also remember the bleachers starting to literally fall to pieces on Phil's side of the stage. it's amazing i remember so many details about this show...it was such a weird day for me - the music was so good, but it seemed like hell was taking over the whole stadium..

first one

What a great first time, it reminded me of the Greek Coliseum, not A seat but concrete bleachers, something very earthy about it. It was a perfect show for me, introduced me to "Let it grow" one of my favorites now. Wharf Rat was a great song before I'd gone that day and was even better hearing Jerry sing it to me live.
I remember leaving with the Words "I'll get up and fly away" playing over and over in my crazy head!
