many years ago but still great vibe lingers. wife (non deadhead) really dug it,too
Wow!! This was my first show and I fell after that!! Next show was in Alpine Valley!! I miss the Met...saw Pink Floyd here too!! The parking lot was so much fun. I had never seen anything like it!
Drove up for Cincy for this. Just reading the set list still gives me chills, especially the second set. A friend from work made the drive with me. The whole trip... the drive up, the show, the drive back...was a blast.
I clearly remember the use of several golden spotlights lighting up the rear of the auditorium when the words "the sun will shine in my backdoor someday" were sung. Will never forget it. I often sing that line and remember that night when I hit bad times. Bobby singing the words and pointing to the back. My last show until the alpine family reunion - that was spectacular, even though he was gone.
My first of many. Mike & I hitch-hiked from Rochester, NY to this show. Got there an hour before show started with two wild & crazy guys that picked us up in Wisconsin. They had been driving up from Chicago. Took us the 3 allotted days we had, broke, Mike had a ticket & I didn't. We had an hour to get me a ticket. Got fronted money, made it back- paid it back! Bought me a ticket & entered with a "crest" still on my tongue. Thats how it all began. Rode the tour all the way back into the fall. I was riding to Alpine on a school bus w/Mitch & Barb. So many miracle making people I met!!! Sooo many!!! God Bless Them All!!! P.S. The parking lot scene was- "fireworks, calliopes, & clowns"
