This was my last show, felt like Jerry was saying goodbye. I had a blast and will never forget that night. I still listen to these shows often and tears well up when I hear Brokedown Palace.
The title to the second song of the second set is "Rain'. The song was put out as the b side for the single Paper back writer. "The rain song" on the other hand was a led zeppelin song, for those who would like to hear the orig.
Ticketed (mail-order) for first night - miracled for the second.
Less than 30-yrds. from the bolts when they hit the lot. Tragic.
But from death comes life.
One of the most memorable experiences of my life, and my last with Jer. God I miss him.
Didn't really sink in until Continental Airlines Arena (formerly Brendan Byrne) in '98.
Can't go back and you can't stand still.
My last show. I remember driving home that evening confused and wondering what was going to happen. I saw a boy dead at the campsite I was at. I freaked out over it, not only because he was so young, but from a distance he looked liked a dear friend. I left the show early and drove home to get to my son, who was 3 at the time. I didn't know at the time, it was my last time with Jerry.

Man, I was fifteen feet from that tree that was hit be the lightning.
But i was really blown away by my second, and unfortunatly, last, Shakedown.
>>Anybody got a sticker/T with the Shakedown struttin' on a lightning bolt?
I believe this was the night they jumped the wall and ran onto the field. i remember that the stadium bounced as they played. I kinda was scared that it would fall,lol. i think they tore it down shortly after. I thought Dylan sucked! but them the dead opened with my favorite song, i am getting goose bumps! this was my last show and i will never forget the drama,lol. Good times
This was also my last show. I had been seeing fewer and fewer shows over the last few years and I hadn't planned on seeing this show. I was talking about dead shows to one of my interns on the day of this show and it got me thinking, and once I start thinking about the dead, was all over except the driving. The feeling was as powerful as the jones for any other drug. Well, the two of drove over to DC, and got tickets during the Dylan set and she saw her first show and I got a chance to hear Jerry for the last time. Brokedown Palace was always so beautiful and wharf rat was exceptionally nice. Miss you Jer.
RFK was my first show in 86 and my last in 95. Both featured Brokedown as an encore. The Dead always brought and still bring such symmetry and balance to my life. I listened to the Brokedown from this show today, with deep joy and sadness both. Jerry sang it with such soul that night.
Thank you all, for everything.
...I love you more than words can tell.
My last of 56 shows starting in 1978. I think the '95 shows WERE better than the '94 shows. The scene had started to change with anti-social smack heads hanging out in their cars and tents all day and not mingling with the rest of us. Very unusual. I guess we knew things were changing but we just thought a band pause was in the future. Such a shocking end but I'm glad for what I experienced and lots of Bobby shows and annual movie meets since.
