That was my first show and I would love to see some photos of any kind. It might help me fill in some blanks!!!
It was my first show, we walked up and my friends friend who told us to come, he walked up to the trailer outside the show just as they opened up with available tix. (a miracle but i wsnt aware at the time) I swear everyone was dosed, even the security. People were walking in and out of JFK. I lost my shoes early on. I just remeber people shouting "Ohh mama" (later I learned of stuck inside of mobile...) At one point i recall stretching like a rubber band for miles into the sky. The wave that started was so cool because of the horse shoe shapeof JFK, once it got to the end to it reversed. I thought of this as a government experiment. i couldnt believe this stuff was legal ( the show, the people, the whole scene was just something I had never experienced.). i had just grad high school a month before and this show really was the start of a new way of life... i found my shoes at the end of the show. Finding my way home was another story. Recently my friend come upon a friend who had a video of the show. It really was an amazing show. Unfortunatley I had no idea who the Dead were, but I knew I was gonna find out. This is where the bus came by and I got on. Still truckin 2day......
See you in the Future
Also my first show, and what a great show it was. I remember driving there on the PA turnpike and 2 hours away we saw heads everywhere going to the show. I felt like everybody on the road were all going to the show. We would all beep and wave, the sense of one big happy family started long before I even got to the show. Once there, I was hooked.
My brothers and I changed out of tailored suits and into tie-dye in the car -- one after the next after the next. Like butterflies emerging. We were standing on wooden benches in the hot sun and then the glorious sunset. Concrete was falling in chunks on the way to the ladies. The music was so incredible I couldn't stop the tears.
That night was magical. I still come alive when telling my stories of that night.
DKNJ: What a dump this place was, perfectly suited to the City of Brotherly Loathing. I remember 2 inches of water on the bathroom floor. Classic.
eight inches of p--- and water in the bathroom, but what a great show. Can't think of a better way to close a stadium.
...the reason? My ball and chain man. I'm divorced now and Jerrys gone. I have my times to remember!! :-) and what a time this was. Me and two others crammed into a little beat up Toyota pick up from the Shenandoah Valley. Bruce was bigger than life. I was right up front for his show and for the start of the Dead. It's funny how many memories come flooding back in as I write this. I love and miss you all
This was the last time the GD played JFK. Brent's Red Rooster was UNREAL!!! I loved jamin' with the Big Sick Bitch! You know who you are Dude!!! I loved camping and going to the big ass community pool before the show. It was filled our freaks and inner city kids. Man it was so weird but I would not have traded it for the world!!!!
RODGER ALLINSON i really loved this summer tour as a rule show for show it was kind but the box scarlet fire and the blow away were some of my alltime favorite versions its no wonder they condemened the stadium after the show
