The greatest place on earth...well at least the east coast

in my humble opinion - this was the best venue east of the mississippi...truly amazing.

something about the Spaceship...

seemed to bring out the best in everyone.
Didnt hurt it was the only GA show during the later years on the entire east coast. As I may recall. I used to have some really good night pics when all the different colors surrounding the coliseum were all lit up.

Ready for takeoff fellas!!! They were more than happy to oblige!

Everytime I drive past it on I-64, I tip ye ol hat.

The vibe at Hampton was always special in a way that was neither West or East Coast. And I know some of you saw the rings around the moon a few times above the Coliseum after a show there, because we all stood there pointing...

A big favorite of mine. And the Dead's. Although DEA was a heavy presence. People taking pictures of license plates?! No, they did not look too out of place. Part of the reason I moved to VA.

This was the summer I learned the dead. I did a road trip to Portland on a bus. Got up there with people. It's hard to remember details. One moment up front looking at Weir, then I'm freaking out. I turned around and told the guy behind me, "I'm freaking out". In a very organized manner, he grabbed me and passed my back saying "he's freaking out". And so it went until I ended up all the way back. I saw a guy sitting on the floor, not moving very much. I looked down at him and decided we should talk for awhile. I sat down and leaned on the wall. We didn't talk, but we did enjoy the show.

Thank you Mr Garcia

Got backstage passes, ran into local techs I know, got a headset and listened to lighting cues. Different way to see a show.
