This was my first show in quite a while and it was an stark reminder of why I don't like stadium shows. It was a hot day and the stadium was refusing to sell beer that day. For some reason Dead heads seemed a bigger risk than drunken football fans. I was almost killed in a crush of people trying to get through the security gate when the music started. If Bill Graham hadn't stepped in and had the gate taken down there would have been something really ugly that day.

Not a big fan of the big stadium shows, either, and this one was hot and miserable and, aside from the Bird Song, didn't seem particularly inspired. Dylan was at the absolute nadir of his terrible 80's vocals and never seemed to find the band's groove musically, either. Wish I had caught the Eugene, Oregon show, because that's the only great tape that I've heard from this tour.

gadzooks, it got realllly ugly at the rail in the first set. This was my first GA show where I was on the rail and a couple songs into the first set this horrific and horrifying smash of people began to crush forward and security started yanking folks over the front fence. This was my first and only sustained genuine terror I had of my pending demise. I was pushing for everything I was worth to not be crushed to death, and finally the set was mercifully over. It took the entire break for my ex-wife and I to extricate ourselves from the mass of people who had smooshed forward. We went up to the top of the stadium for the rest of the show....phew....it was a pretty ugly scene

Yup, what they said..Actually, wasn't half as crowded as the sold-out Madonna show a week earlier would've been, and the crowd was overwhelmingly tie-dye'd. Security was a bit tight letting refreshments in, but Ralph and Tina just staged an argument about who was gonna take the packed ice chest back to the car until security looked the other way, then dashed right in. I smuggled a Walkman and mikes in my pants, then affixed the mikes either side of my hat with garbage ties hidden by a bandana, with wires running down my neck and under my shirt, and became a human mike stand (much to the amusement of folks who eventually noticed). The show was billed as "Dylan & The Dead/Alone and Together", but this was a bit of a misnomer. The Dead blasted through their usual double set, bolstered by the recent In The Dark material, but we were kinda impatiently waiting for interaction and solo Bob stuff in there, too. His Bobness arrived for a 1 hour extended encore slot (there was no Bob alone). Despite much anticipation, and recognizing Bob tunes, the set was surprisingly mushy and muddled. I couldn't figure if the Dead had shot their wad on their own set, if they were pulling the rug from under Dylan, if Dylan was performing flatly and pulling the rug out under the Dead, or if it was simply "the curse" of "blowing the big ones". I still don't know, but these days I listen to a little compilation of some of the inspired nuggets found buried in the Dylan/Dead Rehearsals and reflect that there was inspiration and fun behind the idea of this mini-tour, and it coulda been a whole lot better.

This was sadly my first and only Grateful Dead show...I only remember a few things... The parking lot salesmen, the cops chasing some poor kid and slamming him into a wall, the heat and the crowd, Dylan playing so hard that he broke his strings, an amazing and profound realization of who "the Dead" was (I just didn't know who they were until that day - I was a young Dylan fan and the only Dead song I'd ever heard was Casey Jones...), and the strange, new, beautiful experience that occured that night after I paid a dollar to some guy on the way out of the stadium...

For this my first and only Grateful Dead concert, one of my most vivid memories of this show is one of the people I spotted in the audience. I was wandering around the stands soaking in the atmosphere when who should I run in to but WWF wrestler Superstar Billy Graham. I spoke to him to confirm that he was who he appeared to be. Who knew that there was at least one Deadhead in the Wrestling profession.

Tense,hot, LA stadium show. All of that true...but still a very great time thinking back on it years later. I was able to sneak in an "electric" water gun that shot 50 feet in all directions. I remember the grass was covered with some type of rubbery surface that had the crowd bouncing. It was packed but somehow we worked our way up to the front by Dylan's set. I don't think it mattered where you were sitting by then because it still took 3/4 of a song before you realized what he was singing.
