This show was real hot!!! Finally got to see some Red Rocks magic......need I say more....after three days of looking out at the audience while being blinded by the sun and no stage lights that anyone could really see.....the band made a statement....Rossboy777
Three days of the most enjoyable shows I've seen
This day..was probably the High Point of my entire existence!
Totally Magical. They made weird cow noises and played kazzoos before the show. When they did Dear Mr. Fantasy into Hey Jude I thought I would fly out of my skin!! (And I was Sober!)
"Dear Mr. Fantasy play us a song to make us all happy"brent continued w/ " HAPPY,judey,judey,juedy, la,la,la,la,la,la hey jude" it was a time i remember oh so well
This was the best three days ever had on GD tour.
Really moving shows.
Oh, to go back again!
I remember walking out of the show and seeing Bill Walton on crutches. He was carrying something and I asked if he needed some help and he said he's got it. When we got to where his car was parked it was kind of funny to see this big tall man get into a tiny red sports car. It was just cool to see the best 6th man ever in the NBA. Go Celtics. The Fantasy>Hey Jude> Fantasy blew me away.
The second set was one of the most magical sets that I saw those guys perform in 121 shows from 1/79 thru 7/95. As always at Red Rocks, magic is in the atmosphere already. The sun was out for the second set opener of Shakedown Street, then a cloud moved over the sun and it got very dark, with spooky wind, as the band cooked on through the jam at the end of Shakedown, then into a gorgeous Crazy Fingers in the dark atmosphere with the sun breaking through the cloud and everyone suddenly in bright light by the time of Samson. All of this natural light show going on with the band playing some of their best songs with the daytime view of Denver and the plains in the distance behind the stage. Samson followed by a monumental Uncle Johns Band into Playin. Every song in the pre drum segment were personal favorites. Classic Grateful Dead. They all had that sparkle. One great thing about 1985 was the return of Comes A Time. I remember that after Baby Blue, when Jerry took off Tiger and put in the stand, waved, and walked off stage, I had the feeling that I had just witnessed the best concert I had ever seen. Monumental good vibes after this one, watching the sunset light on the plains from the front range with my beautiful fiancé and our friends with our dilated pupils, talking about the show and laughing. That was one of the best days of my life.
