I, too, saw this show via a simulcast, although back then they called it 'closed circuit'. I am posting the newspaper advertisement from the Newark Star-Ledger here in the fan photos section... I don't really count this as a show I attended, but it was close enough... Great stuff. I bet those that consider it a letdown would give their left earlobe to be there again. I would.
What kind of odds could you have gotten on Halloween night 1980 that Al Franken of Franken & Davis would one day become a United States Senator !!!
Franken and Davis did do some good skits during breaks between songs. Dropping Jerry's guitar tore me up!
Wave that flag, wave it wide and high ! Good luck Senator!
Looking over the set lists and thinking about the eight shows, waiting three days in line outside RCMH, hanging with friends old and new.....this was one magical week. Would love to see these shows released as a proper boxed set.
I saw the show via simulcast at the Tower Theater. It was extremely disappointing. Not because of their performance, but because a speaker blew early in the show and buzzing for the rest of the night. Basically, after that happened the sound sucked. If I considered this a show that I really attended, that part of the experience would have made it the worst for me.
I remember not getting tickets to RCMH so we wound up catching the show at a simulcast. Acoustic set was awesome. I was totally freaking as the background kept changing color...I didn't know what was real and what wasn't. Almost as fun as being there.
