Attendees of this show
At this show, I decided to introduce a dear Brazilian friend who happened to be in NY, and her biggest comment at the end of the show was "Wow - Jerry looks so depressed...".
To our surprise, not a few later, he is gone.
Giants Stadium was always a show I made because of proximity to home and we loved to tail gate beforehand.
Unbroken Chain has always been my favorite, non-standard Dead tune and I always wanted to hear it live, but over the years never expected the band to dust it off.
I remember saying to my show friends how fulfilling it was to see UC live, yet I was hoping to catch it again -- perhaps when Jerry's guitar leads sparkled a bit more....
I'll never forget the fate day when Jerry passed; I got so many phone calls from friends and family that day as I was traveling on business. I sat in my hotel room for hours watching news stories and consoling myself with friends by phone. God -- I needed a show badly on that day....
The Dead shaped my life and I'll never forget the joy and fun in seeing a live show.
In the hospital--BOO!
Sad. I hated Giants Stadium and had never seen the boys there. This was a disappointing show as Jerry was on the decline. I choose to remember the many other brilliant shows from '80, '81 and '90 instead.
I will always remember this evening as not just my last show in person, but I was not so shocked when Garcia shortly thereafter passed away. The rest of the band was top notch, but Jerry was lackluster at best, I vividly remembering telling a friend who had never seen them that "Jerry is off tonight, or wasted". We had a great time though.
My other vivid memory is that Dylan seemed reborn to me, I had not seen him in about five years and he was great, it was a sign of things to come from him. "Ramona" was special, he was into it and energetic. A lifelong memory.
Had 8th row seats and we were really happy about that! And thrilled by Iko-iko. We thought Jerry looked really bad and during Brokedown my eyes filled with tears as I sang along with Jerry and told him: I love you more than words can tell.
The day the news broke I, along with many others, cried many more tears. We loved him more than words could tell.
fare thee well Jerry
As anyone knows who was at this show Jerry was just toast. I remember writing on the back of my ticket stub after the show that the boys needed to take a year off. Tell tale sign obviously.
Miss ya Jerry.
Giant stadium shows were always fun.
I was a freshman in high school at the time, and it was the week of final exams. It was my sister's 50th show, and my first. I was so naive at the time - I am very 'grateful' to have seen Jerry Garcia in person, even if it was only that one time...
it was really bad.
but that scene was not always peachy, escpecially in new jersey.
I fondly remember Bob Dylan rocking it out though.
This night they were "Electric Cave Paintings" "The Chewy Water Tourture" and "Merengue In The Show"Check Out My Orignal Music at myspace.com/salaversano
