Attendees of this show
Steve Miller came out and played with the dead for spoonful and stayed the rest of the show
Oh man, I was so upset when they teased the heck out of smokestack lightning(they were playing it!) and then Bobby started singing spoonful. What was up with that? Almost seemed like a Bob mistake?

The only time I ever skipped an opening act. Eesh. Not a fan.
I thought I remeber them teasing Bertha in the beginning because I remeber people started jumping on to the field an security went nuts trying to catch everyone and they went in to Shakedown instead. I thought it was bads way of protesting the jerks in security. Makes me wonder espcially after the Adam Katz incident a couple of years before at the same run facility across the parking lot.
I remember Steve Miller dedicated 'Take the Money And Run' to the Dead. Not sure if there was a hidden message there. Great show overall! My first!
This show was awsome! For me to see two of the bay areas bands come back to play together at same venue 30 years later in Giant Staduim was great. Steve Miller Band was very good playing some of the greatest hits and some oldies too! Have to say seeing the transition of the Dead over the years was great! Good show for a staduim! It was great to see to my favorite 2 guitar players jamming together at my last Dead show from Spoonful to the end was a treat!
A friend and I went to NYC for a visit. We were in the middle of Manhattan, sitting in a restaurant, when I overheard one of the waiters say that the GD were playing nearby. My friend was a fan of their music, but had never been to a show. I insisted we leave, I think our meal hadn't even made it to the table. I walked out of the restaurant and hailed a cab to that "nearby" place out in NJ! There were tons of people without tickets, but trying desperately. The opening act was almost done when we sat & talked with this guy. Didn't even ask about tickets, just chilled. When we were done, he asked us if we were going in. Upon hearing that we didn't have tickets, he pulled 2 tickets out of his wallet. He wasn't going to go in , because he said that he had to sell all of the tickets to make his money back. I bought another one for him. That was the only GD concert that I sat back & watched the whole time, no dancing. But it was amazing! After the show, I realized that hailing a cab at the end of a GD concert wasn't going to be easy. I tried, anyway. I picked up a pay phone & called a cab company. We sat there for quite a while, then realized that there was no way that cab could make it into the parking lot. We started walking across a field, towards the highway. Right there on the exit ramp was a lone cab, pulled over & lights blinking. We ran up & asked him for a ride back to Manhattan. He said sure, because he was answering a call to pick someone up at the concert, and he couldn't get in the parking lot anyway. Holy sheepshit batman, were we good or what?!!!!
