Told my work mates in Bristol that I was "going home to California for 3 days" - felt like I had walked into CA when I stepped off the tube in Wembley into a flood of tye-dyed Americans! The first of three days of great music and fun and lots of wonderful memories.
met a guy he told me he was the bear and tried to sell me a gold steal your face belt buckle dont know to this day if he was said bear but would like to think so hello owsley
...with the best-ever "Foolish Heart", I believe.
A limp Wang Dang Doodle aside this was a fine high-energy show (recently broadcast on The Professor's Deadpod, if you haven't heard it)
Rekindled my love of the GOGD, whom I'd lost track of through the '80's - and I spent the next five years catching up on what I'd missed
Shame it was to be my last Dead concert - there's nothing can replace them!
watch the next night here jimi-ro -
Thanks for the heads-up on this jonapi - great to be able to see the show I missed!
Hi everyone. This is The Wire calling. We're a UK magazine, and we are running a one page Epiphany from the writer Richard King about his experience of catching the Dead for the first time on the last night of their 1990 Wembley run. This is a very last minute request if any of you out there has photos from this night, or if not at Wembley, another from the same era, preferably with Bruce Hornsby in the picture. We're tight on deadline so please contact me as soon as possible if any of you can help. Please write to email@example.com. Thank you!
I am listening to this concert on Sirius and it seems as though BEW was omitted from the playlist. It was sandwiched between Wang Dang Doodle and Queen Jane Approximately.
