Worst Dead show I ever saw!

Worst Dead show I ever saw! The acoustics were non existent. For some reason, only Petty was understandable! Shame!

Couldn't understand a thing.

Couldn't understand a thing. I remember my friend saying, " Hey, I think they're playing Truckin'!"

I said "I can't tell."

Horrible venue for a concert or a baseball game

Dome Blues

I remember the wave of fans that jumped from the field seats on to the floor. Hundreds if not thousands. The Dome is without doubt the worst venue for a rock band - especially a band with nuance like the Dead. Like being inside a giant freaking marshmallow. Petty still rocked, but it wasn't the place to see one of the greatest rock bands ever. Try Alpine Valley.

HHH memorial gasbag

Agreed, the acoustics Sucked!!!!!!. I remember the review in the anti-Dead Minneapolis Star-Trib the next day blaming everything on the dead insisting on controlling the sound. It couldn't be their beloved gasbag! Another comment by the press sticks in my minds craw, something to the effect of the Dead keeping down the free acoustical expression of Minneapolis' "Native Son", Bob Dylan.. Hibbing is a far-flung burb of the twin cities, dontcha know.

Oh that ceiling...

That ceiling made me really dizzy. Very strange place for a show, in a bad way.

The Roller Rink!

As Mike Ditka put it.
I was 2nd or 3rd row off to the left side of the stage for this. I made it through the Dead but 3 songs into Dylan/Petty I passed out. I drove the night before from Chicago - no sleep! By 11 am. we had several cases of beer along with damn near every illegal contriband we could get. Wasted! Wasted! Wasted! and luckly it was one of the worst sounding shows I can remember! I don't think I missed much!

Big River

I came from the Pacific NW thinking this Dead-Dylan thing might be a once in a lifetime chance. This show, as piss-poor as it was forever changed Big River for me. Not that it was played this night but I met this very cute blonde sweet southern gal at this show. One of those stand-out memories of certain people you get to know at shows when they hang with you for a set or two. So forever after I'd hear the line "I met her accidentally in St Paul Minnesota, tore me up every time I heard her drawl that Southern drawl".. it was just one more of those moments when I feel every lyric delivered by the Dead is telling the story of MY life... and I remember the hurricane force winds as we exited as they tried to keep that dome inflated.. crazy
