Drum Solos not Drum Duet

This campus show had many first timers, who were stunned at the Space opener, wondering why the Deadheads were going nuts and "would the whole show be like this? Uh-oh."

This show was fit really nicely with my energy and attitude and I was flying high.

One note is that drums was two solos, first Billy, then he left and Mickey had the stage. Nice jam out of the drims solos, rather than Space (which they already played, remember).

I remember the pumpkins on both sides of the stage. I saw someone running down the street with one after the show. We were so dosed my friend tried to jump into a police car. I think we scared him. then the riots the next show

From Carolina to Carolina

It wasn't the best show but it sure was fun. Our UNC Deadhead group chartered 3 buses from Chapel Hill, so about 120 of us Tarheels invaded the other Carolina for the Halloween feast of the Dead. The show started off great but after the Music Never Stopped, the Music stopped. The energy somehow got sucked out of the band. The second set was short and not that inspiring. It was a little bit of a letdown especially after the hot start of the show..

I converged with 3 old friends and a hefty sack of dried fungi (more old friends) for this Halloween party. The opening of "Space /Werewolves combined with the visuals of the lights and jack-o-lanterns sent thingsu to another level.
3 of us goblins melted into our nosebleed seats, unable to move a muscle (or wanting to), being one with the tunes while one werewolf prowled the Coliseum the entire show, only to appear when the lights came up.
No complaints on the first set but things did appear to fade as the night went on.

looking back

Looking back this show was a let down having never played in South Carolina I thought for sure we were getting a blow the roof off the joint type of show. Many times when it was either a long ride or new building/state they would SMOKE the joint. ie Boise ,Lake Placid, Lewiston Maine ... And many more. Not this night though. Ya WAREWOLVES after all these years but still I think they could of dug deeper on this night. Trust me when I say I have no complaint though was still a fun show and the tour itself was one for the ages. Might be most fun I ever had on a tour. The group I hung with every show made it all of these shows from Summer tour on we were all in every night.
