We had some very good tickets down on the floor in Phil's Zone, but the folding chairs were crammed really close together, so we took apart the rows of seats to allow us room to dance during the CSN set. Well, after the CSN, the security guards came around and made us set the seats back up, but we did not set them up the way they originally were, and then security came back around to check that everyone was in their proper seats, and ours did not exist, and my friend was told "FIND YOUR SEAT OR GO TO JAIL!!!"
Brent did not sing any of his tunes at this show, it was the only show on the tour where that was the case- I think he was about to sing one during first set, but he seemed unhappy with his monitors, and batted the mic stand away in frustration. On the View From The Vault DVD you can see Brent messing with something under his towel, if you freeze-frame slowly through it you can get a quick glimpse of what he was doing!! High-energy show with a rare 2nd-set Wang Dang Doodle.

Not A Good One

So Pitt what was Brent doing?

I used to have the VFTV but it was so crappy I gave it away though I do remember during Let It Grow Brent did knock his mic out of the way.

dancing skeletons

I got 3rd row tickets for this one for some friends and my mom and stepfather, who saw their first and only show here. My mom was wearing these cool pewter earrings that were lizards biting their own tails to form a hoop.
I'm embarrased to say that I hooked up with a girl I liked from high school and was making out with her through several songs. I don't think it's necessarily right to make out with somebody in front of your mom. I was only 19, though. Oh well, nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile. Sheepishly.
Phil saw us making out and gave me a smile sometime during the first set.
During 'Estimated,' these big skeletons emerged from either side of the stage and started to dance around, which, unfortunately, you can't see on the DVD 'cause it's all tight shots of the band.
Like most of '90, this was a great show with consistently solid musicianship.

Didn't CS&N open for the GD for this show?

CSN did open.

Buty, despite a confirmation on a local radio station I picked up as I enetered town, teh two groups did not perform together.

This show started my summer

This show started my summer tour for me, after a friend and travel partner bailed on me at the last minute, I had to let a couple of tickets go....This was a beautiful show...I really could just step into the music and did not stop dancing the entire time. I was with a relative stranger who was from pittsburgh and hooked up a couple of us by taking us to a hotel to stay and picking us up the next day to take us to the show!
Great time, Great people.

Good Time

Took friends Eric and Paul to this 1. The Skeletons were huge!!! The 2nd set jams were awesome as Eric stated don't they ever sing, and how long are there songs? I just had to laugh!!! Eric loved Bob's screamin at the end of Estimated!!!! Very hot day, and the music was hotter!!!!

Bakin' in the hot PGH sun

Does anybody else remember the skeleton's leg falling off during "Miracle". I swear I saw it happen, but I was pretty ripped. And Bobby's echoing "yeah, yeah, yeahs" during "Estimated" wonder that's my favorite Bob tune. I don't think this is caught on the DVD, as it doesn't pick up the echo effects, plus the camera never leaves Jerry, so we miss Bob charging the front of the stage. Great day with CSN and the Dead. God, I miss these shows.

hello Jerry

Great day for me and my buddy Mike. That morning we ran into Jerry at the indoor pool at the Vista. We rapped a bit and took a swim by his side. It was all good that day!
