This place was small and had a glass ceiling. During Estimated-Eyes....It was pouring outside!! Lighting was popping all around. and every time it light the crowd up....the band hit a deep tune................WOW what a fucking show!!!
I forgot all about this show till the last post! My friends and I arrived late even though we only lived 20 mins away, duh, and were supposed to have tickets waiting for us at the box office. Fell through, dont remember why. We could hear the show going on and all the cheering during lightning. I think it was during Looks Like Rain. Going to listen to it today.
Yeah, the lightning was awesome as was the rest of this show. During Ramble On Rose....someone from the road crew held a metal circle frame of some sorts around Mickey....not really sure what it was all about. Very strange. The segue from Estimated into Eyes was purely MAGICAL!
I have read all the comments and I am not so sure about all of them and when the storm started but I do for sure remember when Bob started doing looks like rain is when the lightning was hitting and it was not just a dream, Every time he sang it "LOOKS LIKE RAIN" the lightning would flash and the crowd went crazy.....This I will never forget. It was one of my first shows and you don't forget that. Man the parking lot was crazy as we arrived while it was dark and all you could hear from the bushes was people making it. I mean OK yes sometimes the shows were loaded with sex even one show the lights and the crowd had a look at two people buck naked and going at it, They were arrested of coarse but all the same what fun.
Loved the show and the lightning coming through the skylight during estimated made it a whole lotta fun.
