The Dome was Huge; remember just being blown away by the space and the boys trying to fill it with sound. The Jam in Jack Straw is just evil and I think this is the first time Lovelight and Smokestack were performed in the same show since 3/25/72.
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow.
We had seen six shows on this tour already. A good friend of ours had some liquid 25, just a drop'll do ya! Was mightily impressed with the vastness of the dome and the show rocked!
Another hitchhiking trip to a show for me, this time with a friend from UMass. We left about 5PM the day before the show and made it to Syracuse not too late at night. We thought we'd just find a place to throw our sleeping bags down on or near campus, but it started raining and we didn't have a tent. So we noticed that the Carrier Dome had an overhang at ground level pretty much all the way around the stadium. We just slept under the overhang, under the dome. We were surprised that campus security didn't find us and kick us out in the middle of the night. The night of the show we both dosed on some pretty decent acid. Our seats were pretty far away from the stage, on Jerry's side, not too high up. The acoustics combined with my tripping mind made for some memorable sounds. I don't remember the quality of the show itself, but my night was a lot of fun. We hitchhiked back late that night, made it to Holyoke right before sunrise, and crashed right by the side of I-91, on the grass. We were too exhausted to make it back to our dorm until we got a few hours of sleep.
Your not kidding, I checked back in on this one today and my oh my . Jack Straw is sung with force by Bobby. I do not remember it during the show but have listened to it 5 or 6 times sense then and today it really hit me. Sung with force and anger. Is almost like he is pissed off.
I am lucky to have been on the entire tour in 1984 and we had many shows that were highlights like Maine along with the summer tour. Jerry had his long frumpy long long long hair and his weight was getting up there. In all the years following them this was surely his most unhealthy look. sad but true I will always Miss him.
