I do believe this was nearly a 24 hour train ride from amsterdam, where we would return to see Bruce play in an old hippie church selling hash and heinikens! We thought the Dead were playing in the big sphere in Stockholm but they were playing next door in a tiny ice hockey rink!

I had been waiting since 1967 (when I bought my first Dead-album) to hear them live, so I was really happy to see them...being a bassplayer I especially looked forward to hear Phil. but the acoustics were poor. later I got some cassettes and the show IS kinda lame musically, but the feeling was definitely there...a big family!!!!!

It was fantastic to see the Dead live for the first time. I have listened to the since about 1980 (it was a TV sent show from Germany (together with The Who), that I still got on video). There was a rumor in Swedish media that the Dead sound people had done measurements in both Stockholm Globe Arena and in Johanneshovs Isstadion, and they preferred Isstadion. Trivia: There was a festival with christian rock and gospel music at the same time in the neighboring Globe Arena.

does ANYONE who was at the Stockholm Ice Palace show in 1990 happen to know a woman named Jen Quigley? She was there, and the last time I heard from her was a postcard I received from Stockholm that she wrote to me when I lived in Ohio (we'd attended two shows at the Philly Spectrum together, and then went back to Ohio together, but since I was unable to jet to the European tour that year, as much as I would've loved to, I lost touch with her and to this day, have no idea where she is) ANYONE? ANYONE?Thanks in advance if you can help me on this; at the very least, if you know her, tell her i said hello and i hope she's doing well if not, have a great day anyway, and keep the good vibes alive :) ERW

The boys seemed jet-lagged and uninspired, not one word to the audience. I thought they would at least introduce the new guy (Vince), but no!

It was a cold, windy day and there was several empty rows upfront in the arena so i got a seat on the third row. Perfect. When Jerry started playing the first song the PA system was turned down and in the first half minute or so each instrument one after the other were turned up in the mix.

says in his book "A Long Strange Trip" this show was one of the worst the Dead ever did ... well, I was there and I don't agree ... Of course this show was (and still is, of course) the only show I have attended in real life but compared to many a dull shows I have listened to on tape, this show wasn't that bad. I will always remember the beginning of Not Fade Away - the whole auditorium started to sing as one, taken the words out of Weir's mouth ... and Bobby's jaws dropped ... and then the grin on his face ... that was magical ... I was one of few Dead Heads who attended the press conference the day before, thanks to one of Sweden's largest tabloids. I went around and greeted the band welcome to Swden on behalf of the Swedish Dead Héads. Nicest of them all was Vince Welnick, who told me being with the Dead felt like Christmas every day. The only one I didn't get to say hello to was Bill Kreutzmann. I did go to US in the summer of 1986, with the intention to follow my first Dead tour. But I as you all know Garcia fell into a coma and the whole tour (mid-west) was cancelled. I also intended to catch the Dead in Copenhagen in October, 1981, but was not able to because of personal reasons. I have ever since felt guite bad about that. But I saw the TV broadcast from Grugahalle in West Germany on March 28th, 1981. That was my "first" show, so to speak ...

The show in Stockholm took place in the hockey arena at the Johanneshov Ice Stadium. All other informations are incorrect. It was built in 1955 as an outdoor hockey arena. Until 1989 it was the largest hockey arena in Stockholm and it has a capacity of 8.422 attendants. At concerts the capacity is about 9.800 people. At the Dead show there were about 5.500 attendants.

How could it be that long ago? Met some friends for the first time on the ferry to Sweden, the Hahn brothers, who I love and adore today! The hockey arena floor was covered with plywood and the place was freezing cold, the band was sloppy and tired, as were the rest of us travelers from all over the globe. Those were the days!!
