Cold Rain...

You could see the storm coming from behind the stage. As soon as it arrived at the stadium, the storm split and went around the venue and the sun came out over the crowd. Cold, Rain, and Snow was the song the band played. Wow was all I could think of at the time.

If the thunder don't get you the lightning will

I remmemer the lightning before the show. I was on the floor and the lightning storm was all around the stadium. There were some pretty close strikes but one hit the lighting towers with a pretty loud bang. For a few seconds there was total silence and when everyone realized they survived there was a giant roar the party was electrified. Pretty intense. This was an okay show the Scarlet-Fire was pretty fiery. By the end of the show I was on the floor again for the last 4 songs. Plenty of dancing room on Phil's side. I fought the law!!!

lightening, rainbows, double winged plane, on and on!

was an incredible show for me and a friend who had come to his very first show...and what a show it was! started about 4 back from the stage in front of bobby and as he sang a fav, queen jane approx i was telling elvis how he's not, grinning hugely at him..just then, we made eye contact and that gorgeous smile beamed across his face! elvis had to pick me from the clouds!!! then we went up top and watched as a truck (tire) got zapped by that lightening bolt and proceeded to burn....was recognized by someone from the year before that called out my name...trippy cuz i didn't have a clue who HE was! LOL
then how about the 7 rainbow stripes that appeared when the rain broke in the sky along with a red-baron type plane doing loop-de-loops over the stage and a huge blue mattress kite flying in the back....was truly a sight to see, and was even in wharf rat style that day!!!! one of the best shows i've ever attended, and the MOST memorable! thanks universe!

marshmallow fight

I remember a great marshmallow fight that went on for 30-40- minutes! After throwing them back and forth - we were on the left side bleachers throwing them into the floor standees, and they were throwing them back! After being in the 100 degree heat it got real interesting at the end when the mallows got a little sticky. I saw one poor blonde girl w/ beautiful long hair get pelted right on the top of her head. After the crowd saw that she started getting bombarded - we were all wasted so watcha gonna do?

The rainbow was incredible - I actually used to have a great picture of that, haven't seen it for years.

Never saw Sting once - or any other opener for that matter. Too much fun outside!
