Attendees of this show
Last time I would see Jerry; unfortunately I was unable to really enjoy the show, thick crowd, Bloody Marys and Balloons, gates crashing, heads all empty....
I would quit drinking and drugging one year later almost to the day...

Comment: * First Rollin' & Tumblin'.
The last show I saw.
last show for me too. i remember remarking on how grey Jerry was looking. There were some crazy gate crashers and an enormous traffic jam.
order tickets for the fall the day before Jerry died.
Drove up from Portland, ME. Beautiful day. Crowd was real thick. Gate Crashers. Last show for me.
Pivotal point in life....Life would change for me after this show. Went up for the weekend; left after the traffic cleared for home. Drove 8 hours + straight to connecticut; got home, took a shower and drove to the airport to catch a plane. Left for a 17 day Alaska backpacking trip.
Last show for me. It became the end of an era that I'm still, to this day, missing dearly.
It was my last show as well. I was up front by Jer with my pack of High Life. He will be missed!
My last show...who knew?! Actually an ugly day...too many people who didn't give a damn but getting buzzed...gate crashers, people getting hurt...not what the Dead were all about...couldn't wait for the Fall shows in Boston, those that we would never see. "He's Gone ...."
While I was sad to have the era come to an end, I left this show feeling that it was ready to end. I agree with the comments above - the scene at this show was ugly, and no longer captured the spirit of community and magic that I'd come to know and love. Over a decade later, I still treasure the experiences and memories from about a hundred shows over a dozen years. What a long strange trip it's been...
I agree with most of the comments here. I sensed the end was near as well. That's why I did most of the East Coast tour in '95. Although, there were some moments here and there Jerry was running out of gas and the scene attracted a LOT of RIFF RAFF. Regardless, I wouldn't change a thing and I'm eternally grateful to Jerry and the boys.
