This was my last grateful dead show as well. But as fate would have it, the spirit lived (and lives) on with the furthur festivals, the other ones, Phil & friends, and especially Ratdog. I hope to see you all at the Gathering of the Vibes.
I remember Jerry wearing a red t-shirt rather than the more preferred navy one. The phrase "trouble ahead, Jerry in red" says it best. I just remember sitting in my tent after the show and feeling so let down. Jerry fumbled through the lyrics to numerous songs and looked so ill. It was the beginning of the end and it was all too clear.
The vending was amazing, over half a mile of shakedown, but the crashers sucked!! People stuck in turned over porto-potties for over an hour, not cool. I still miss Jerry almost everyday. I'm with Drbombay, bring on the VIBES! Can't wait to see the DOG!!
But I heard about it. My lil Sister went and she said it was a pretty bad scene. Gate crashers, police, bad traffic. I'm glad I saw my last show in Cali (Oakland) It was a much better way to say goodbye.
Dylan opened. The papers the next day said there were 100,000 there. Pretty close I'd say.
I was with my brother. When the Dead took the stage he said,
"Jerry in red. Trouble ahead."
100,000 people and the majority were morons. such a great place to see the dead, and so secluded, it's amazing how far assholes will travel to wreck a good time. Wish I had stayed home, the way the boys played, they should have stayed home too
Had to come back after Highgate '94 - but got stuck in traffic for hours, barely made it to the venue in time to hear Dylan in the distance - no ticket takers, the fence was down, so I still have my un-torn ticket.
We managed to have a great time, all was not lost. But it was clearly the beginning of the end. The beauty and innocence of Highgate '94 was gone.
"When I had no wings to fly, you flew to me"
My last show prior to this one was in Oxford Maine. After those shows it was apparent to me that way to many folks were going to shows for the wrong reasons. It saddened me since I had been an avid follower since 73 or so. At any rate since they were playing in my home state I figured I'd go and see if anything had changed. Yes the scene had changed but even further away from what it was back in the day as they say.
I was way up front for Dylan (who was great) and for the first set of the Dead. To look at Jerry almost brought tears to my eyes, that coupled with the hordes of riff raf was such a bring down that I left half way thru the second set, a first for me. On my way home I could not help thinking about all the great shows I'd seen thru out the years and that sooner or later something bad was about to happen to what use to be one of my most cherished events.
Well now I'm happily into the alt-country vibe but still break out some live Grateful Dead of yester year to keep the flicker of light going and to remember what Jerry and the boys use to mean to me.........
I begged my mom to go to this show the year before, but she said no. At the time I was 17 and living with my parents in Connecticut, the show was 250 miles away. I can remember her reaction, "God only knows what you’ll be up to up there…I know what goes on at those shows.” A year later my mom’s graduation present was to tell my father I was attending freshman orientation early so I wouldn’t be distracted when I started classes at UVM in the fall. He bought it because it came from my mom. This was my first and only show. The show wasn’t their best performance but I gave it 4 stars anyway because of all the good memories. I was close to the stage so I didn’t hear about all the gate crashing and a-holes until we got back to the car. The show was a very poignant moment in my life as it was a prelude to adulthood: for the first time in my life I was free to do what I want with out my parents on my back. I base a lot of the rest of my life off this show, 4 years later I’d see the passing of my father and my graduation from UVM, 3 years after that graduation from WNEC law, a year after that marriage and I find out yesterday my child should be due late May/early June 2008. This show was truly an end of an era; however, like anything else, it was also the beginning of a new one.
god, was it awful...Jerry forgetting lyrics, portapotties being knocked over by gate crashers....just awful....at least my last show was my first outdoor show since '86
