03-14-71 - Dwight Holmes: After much frustration (I went to CA in 4/70--the boys played in Wisconsin where I was in school!! Then I had tix for 7-5-70 show in Chicago & they cancelled while were waiting to get in... and so on. Anyway this was my first show, and my only Pig show. 'nuff said?? * 08-26-71 - Brendan McGauran: Too many to mention on favorite Dead shows. Very impressed with the energy of the Hamptom shows (all of them) My favorite Live experience is my first show at Gaelic Park in 1971. Never been able to get a live tape. I hear that they have an audience tape. * 03-25-72 - BARRY GOOD: killer show in ny. jg & friends... i was quite young (in high school) the adventure of going up to ny with friends the show was great & fun A TRUE TEST OF FRIENDSHIP WITH A BUDDY OF MINE & SINCE THEN WE'VE STAYED THE BEST OF FRIENDS.... THEN the adventure of going back to phila... * 05-07-72 - alex allan: Sitting in the mud listening to Country Joe, huddled under plastic sheets. Then the New Riders came on and rain stopped. We all got to our feet, real feel-good music. Then finally the Dead came on and the evening sun shone. A magic show. Pigen growling out and getting the crowd going. Dark Star in the dusk. Wow! And then backed up by four nights in the intimacy of the Lyceum. Made me a Deadhead for life. * 05-07-72 - Mick Scott: Mudstock! Three days of rain and miserable weather. Then the Dead came on stage Sunday evening - And the sun came out! * 06-17-72: Front row at the Hollywood Bowl with a headful of acid * 09/72 - Bear_: Jersey City My first show.. I was 17. I havent been the same since. * 09-21-72 - Tom Ferraro: My first show. I was totally anticipating the whole scene for months thanks to some older friends and I was =not= disappointed. I was in love with Dark Star from Live/Dead and was in tears when they played it that night. The sense of community and fun I enountered that night has remained with me these many years. I think it is indelible. * 09-23-72 - Chris Zingg: What else, my first show. Great performance, no hassles, beautiful weekend! * 11-17-72 - Mike DeCesare: A bunch of NYC, NJ friends were going to college in Kansas. This was a birthday present (one day late) to me by those guys. The music was great, an outrageous Other One We were right next to the stage and talking to Jerry and Bob during the show. Good music, good friends, easy living. What else could you ask for? * 12/72 - rock: fox theater st louis mo With the NRPS my first experience. * 06-10-73 - Bob Murphy: The weekend I graduated high school: Old & In the Way on Friday night a bluegrass festival in Warrenton, VA and then Sunday, 6-10 with the Allman Brothers the Dead and a couple others. Gates opened at noon, walk right in, $7.50! Dew opener for the Dead, two great sets and a third with some of the A. Bros. It just doesn't get any better! * 09-03-77 - Marc Schaeffer: Went as guest of someone in production. Slept on the stage. Awoke at dawn when they opened gates and thousands of kids came screaming across the field toward the stage. * 09-03-77 - chris forshay: this was my fourth show. it was a real gathering of the tribes, '70s style. biggest crowd (at that time) ever to show up at a dead show (as opposed to one of those rock festival-type things). the band was on a roll; terrapin & the movie were just out; the band had been on a health-enforced vacation. they played wonderfully. they were burning with energy & intensity. mr. lesh was moved to inform the crowd that it was the best the band had seen in a long time. i got completely lost in a sea of 125,000 people. i was wearing extremely dark prescription sunglasses & the sun was going down. the speaker towers were all named after months. i was wandering around muttering, "where's august?" of course, i found my friends. microdots & whippets were the order of the day. when i found my friends, i went back for a second helping of microdot; it took effect during estimated>eyes. what a solo jerry did during eyes! and samson was tackled at a furious tempo, even if they botched the ending. then they took a break, which was decent of them as whippet noise tends to be a real distraction during the music. everyone knew the crucial part of the show was coming up. he's gone was essayed at a brisk pace, with an unfortunate screw-up in the middle. jerry redeemed it gloriously--no harm done. and then, the all-time greatest not fade away! we'd all heard the song before, of course, but never like this! they were getting off, that much was obvious. just that moment, sunset, labor day weekend, end of summer, friends meeting other friends, all the whippets you could possibly want, and this insane endless not fade away. that was it. that was the peak. that was my favorite live experience. * 11-05-77 - Andy Dorfmann: This was one of my first Dead shows. It was during that great year which we all realize now. Even on the tape, Weir and Garcia were pleading with the crowd to take a step back and chill out. Forget it! We were in a frenzy. It was in the days of general admission and no chairs on the floor. What a night! * 11-06-77 - Mitch Glicksman: Tickets were really scarce. It seemed like thousands of people were looking for extras. I sold one at cost (as always). We got there really early and scoped out a spot on a ramp by a set of glass doors. We partied there all day. When the doors opened, the doors were immediately shattered and everyone just ran in without getting there tickets torn (except me, being the very high and law-abiding citzen that I was). Many of my friends had their whole ticket in their wallets for years. Anyway, EVERYONE got in because people were going back out with handfuls of untorn tickets for the people outside. That definitely had something to do with the energy in the arena that night. It was PACKED! Plus there were some incredible doses going around. The band and the crowd were loose and it was an incredible show. (I can go on and on but.....) * 11-06-77 - Carla Rickaby: Dancing with my Dad :) This was also the last time that my dad and I had seen a show together :( * 08-12-79 - Jay Strauss: my 1st red rocks show and it blew me away. The sound in the venue, the setting, the cool colorado rain and other liquids, all combined to melt this road weary head into the rocks. * 11-05-79 - Greg Hurwitt: The Spectrum, Philadelphia, PA. My first show! * 09-02-80 - Robert Rizzo: Or thereabouts, Rochester War Memorial. Day before my first day of college. My first AIKO. My first DEW. First (and only) sexual experience at a show. * 05-22-82 - Paul: Sun setting over the bay, The lights starting to take effect, A warm day for the bay area, It didn't really matter what they played. * 12-26-82 - Seth Manheim: The first time I went with my best Deadhead buddy to the year-end shows in Oakland. A great show, and a great memorable experience. * 06-20-83 - Phillip Zerbo: Been to a few shows previously, but that is when I GOT IT! Brief words could not possibly do the experience justice. * 06-24-83 - Joshua A. Solomon: Hot Shakedown. I mean literally. When Weir threw back his head during Rooster, the sweat coming out of his hair drenched the crowd up front. Hot Deal too. Jerry liked long solos in '83. All of his solos in this show were long. They were also hot. Every single song of the second set was played as well as it had ever been played. Help on the Way, Sailor/Saint and Morning Dew, to name a few. The best part was the pre-drums jam and drums. After Saint of Circumstance, everybody left stage except Bob and Mickey. Bob started to play what DeadBase calls "Mind Left Body Jam." All of a sudden Phil became audible. He was jamming along backstage, still plugged in! Then Weir changed gears. A quick flurry of power chords stated a new theme. And Phil (still offstage) was right there with him. Weir oscillated between MLBJ and this new theme for awhile. Before he decided to call it quits, Billy returned wearing a Devil mask. He gave Mickey a mask to wear too. Rhythm Devils truly. After about 5 minutes of trap workout, Mickey started throwing drumsticks at Billy's cymbals. After that Mickey soloed until the guitarists came back to the stage. Why can't I find a soundboard of this show? * 07-13-84 - Jolie Goodman : 4 days after my birthday, full moon, lunar eclipse, I believe. The Greek Theater in Berkeley. They played a great show, then went ahead & played Dark Star for the encore with slides from Mars in the background. Need I say more? * 03-31-85 - Tony Masiello: I ordered the tour book for the spring 85 run, and initially had intended to sell my Portland tix. I was attending Villanova University at the time, and their hoops team was having a pretty good run of their own at the time. When they made the Final Four, it set off a chain of events, which included a large stretch of classes before easter break being cancelled, and the person who was supposed to buy my tix giving them back to me so he could stay a watch the games. So I made the trip to Portland. Stood in the cold for hours before the show. Ran to the front right between Bobby and Phil. Saw an excellent show capped by an all out rockin rendition of Daytripper. Walkin outside after my most intense show to see a spring snow shower with the biggest snow flakes I've ever seen. Oh yeah, and I missed a pretty good party on campus also as Villanova went on to win an unlikely national campionship * 06-15-85 - Mark: It is, of course, really hard to pick one favorite experiance. Nevertheless, this was a great show. Three of my dearest friends and I drove out to Berkely from Boulder Colorado, did many fun substi, danced like crazy, got shot in the head with lazer like light show blasts, hung out with some other dear old friends from Seattle, set in the center of the pit, blah blah blah. * 06-28-85 - MCM: An old high school football stadium was the site. Have you ever heard the bass level in the second set? Music Never Stopped to open the second, then into Phil's version of Tom Thumb Blues. "...and my best friend my drummer won't even tell me what it was that I dropped". * 07-02-88 - Dave Lee: Beautiful weather, hanging out with college friends, fun crowd Excellent show. While it wasn't my first show, it was the first time where everything was just right. * 12-31-88 - Terry Kennedy: My only actual New Years Eve show! (need I say more?) * 07-04-89 - keon ioannou: first live show. i had been listening to the dead for several year and collecting tapes for a couple years but never saw them. on july fourth 1989 i attended a show in buffalo.somewhere during ship of fools something in me changed. i was hooked."the bottle stands as empty as it was filled before,time there was and plenty but from that cup no more.though i can not caution all i still may warn a few, don't lend your hand to raise no flag upon no ship of fools." the rest is history. * 07-04-89 - Jeff Swanson: 1st set was a "building experience" as far as the sound goes. But 2nd set was mind blowing. Great sound. Rolling Thunder at it`s best. * 10-16-89 - Gary Dobson: Was the 5th of 5 shows at the Meadowlands and felt the show probably would be a throwaway show...Was tired from the 2 hour one way commute to shows and still going to work every day....Needless to say it was well worth the effort. * 12-31-89 - Ken Fortenberry: Married on 12-30-89, caught a plane from Champaign- Urbana on the morning of the 31st and saw Bonnie Raitt sit in on Big Boss Man and a wonderful DarkStar. * 03-15-90 - Ed Leiken: out of body experience * 03-18-90 - Steven Casella: My first Dead show! Opened the 1st set with an incredible Shakedown Street and closed the first set with an exceptional Music Never Stopped. Till this day, I have not heard any better versions of these songs. What also made this show special, was the fact that I didn't know I was going to the show. * 04-02-90 - peter simmons: well that is too hard to answer for just one show, because as you all well know all shows were special for one reason or another. April @, 1990 was a great show in Atlanta (the last Death Dont have no mercy) CAl Expo 1990 UJB>China Cat >Rider, Estimated>Foolish Heart... Saratoga 85, all 3 Nassau 85, MSG 87 Shakedown i could go on for ever but i won't * 06-10-90 - Matthew H. Wier: Cal Expo Amphitheater - my favorite show from my favorite run of shows ever. IMHO, these shows were Brent's best performances as a member of the Dead. * 07-16-90 - Helen Green: Brent was Freakin' AMAZING!!!!!!!! 50,000 people screaming "You know our love will not fade away" Being togeather with some of the most love people in my life listening to something so wonderful, it's impossible to describe! * 09-20-90 - Mark Goldey: Floor seats were easy to get, & the vmusic was better than the view. I was surrounded by a group of total strangers, all of whom where good folks. (too rare!) The show itself was spectacular. I remember watching Bruce Hornsby using his entire forearm to play the painao during the second half of the Dark Star and wonder "who IS this guy?" Believe it or not, the ability to get on the subway and just go home--20 minute ride, no cops, no hassles, no drunks/life-threatening Acide victims in cars, and to just go home, have a beer, and hang with my friends and refelc ton an amazing run of shows. The entire evening stands out as an example of how good life can be. * 10-20-90 - keith kreider: My first Star at the ICC in Berlin. Clearly my favorite tour. The venue rocked and my mind was in orbit with the constellations. * 12-06-90 - Nicholas Stern: The sun, music, company, dancing and setting clicked non-stop for one glorious second set. Just another great vibe among millions! * 04-01-91 - Wil Schriefer: April Fool's day at Greensboro. It was just a magical kind of day. The boys in the band played a 45 minute Eyes of the World. Another favorite was the last time I saw Brent play. This was at RFK about two weeks before he died. He was on fire that night, and I'll never forget the song that they closed with: "The Weight". * 04/91: Was in Las Vegas, great experience. * 06-06-91 - Soren N. Eustis: Deer Creek was one of the finest stadiums thatthe Dead played at. The outdoor/indoor feel of it is great. They played a smokin' set and I was just blown away by the combination of earth, wind and FIRE * 06-07-91 - Eric Pearson: To be honest with you, I can remember loosing my friends at set break. I went up to the top of the lawn, dead center, and danced my ass off to a charged up Scarlet->Fire!! * 09-04-91 - John Arundel: My first show, what else! It was a life changing experience, believe me. And the show, in retrospect having the benefit of listening to a lot of tapes, still is the best show I have heard. They rocked! * 03-09-92 - Jason Uttam: Washinton was my last stop on a three city tour I was on at the time and this was the big one with Dark Star and Morning Dew in the same set. Who could ask for more? * 05-30-92 - Brian Koch: Thunder and lightning throughout the show. How we stayed dry I'll never know. Crowd noise on tape still raise hairs on back of my neck. * 05-31-92: Check the setlist! esp. from drums on left my body, no drugs involved; good company, sunny weather, music beyond desription from the band (post-75, no less!) I:H>S>F (nice opener, huh?)/Minglewood/Roses/QJane/Bird Song/Picasso II:Scarlet>Fire/MSWS/So Many Roads/ Saint> He's Gone> Drums (rib-shaking)>Space(gentle)>Attics AHHHH!>Spoonful>Jam>Other>Dew (monster!) e: Baba>TNK * 06-06-92 - Chris Scully: Buffalo-92-Saturday; Sorry, I suck at actual dates. That's why I need Deadbase * 06-08-92 - Joe Tomain: First time I ever heard So many Roads & Corrina. The Band was on from the start! My first time on the floor Dark Star, Last Time, Stella. Tom Thumb's. It was just one of those nights! * 06-20-92 - Gary J. Halper: I was sitting on the stage with my then pregnant sister out of space into Casey Jones!!! Still my favorite. * 12-03-92 - Steve Wolfe: Came back from Europe; saw first Dead show in 1.5 years, in Denver. They did Playin' (my favorite) and then jammed into something else-I forget what. About two weeks later I was visiting in Cali and went with my brother to the last night of the Oakland stand. They came out of Space into the end of Playin'. * 12-06-92 - Benton Maples: HCS breakout after getting hooked with choice seats. * 03-11-93 - Big Jon: Ken Nordine was great, although barely audible over the loud cheering. Spoonful made me dance and He's Gone made me cry. The Day's Between and Liberty were also excellent. * 03-24-93 - Christopher H. Dell'Anno: Chapel Hill - The show was right around the perverbial corner (I'm in Raleigh NC) It was my 17th or 18th show and I had just come back from Atlanta and was really hoping to hear "Here Comes Sunshine". I had heard on the G.D.Hour that it had been brought out of retirement and was afraid I had missed it in atlanta because I only went to the first two nights and not the third. In Chapel Hill the traffic was worse than I'ld ever seen for any event in the state. We were stuck in traffic and I had shirts that I had to sell and I couldn't because I was stuck in the traffic-jam-from-hell!!!! Needless to say my blood pressure was way up, but my friends helped by going to the parking lot(it was only 50 feet away) and selling the shirts while I parked. I finally parked and ran, not walked, ran to the Dean (DEAD) Dome and made it in as the lights went down. I met my friends at the seats and they sold all but 10 shirts in the three hours it took to get out of traffic.I had had a really bad day- no parking lot scene and at thata point was in ned of some happiness. The show started, was great but the true highlight was the Here Comes Sunshine to open the second set, it made it all worth while. * 06-19-93 - Mike Karr: First show * 06-23-93 - Jarod Belshaw: terrapin>d/s>darkstar>the wheel nuff said... :) * 08-21-93 - andy noonan: is that right? Eugene oregon with my bro and his new pop-top. dead end camping and I almost get run-over. the guy in silk boxers sporting scary morning-wood. * 08-22-93 - Zechariah Beardsley: When Bob lost his guitar in the middle of Jack Straw and Jer just kept playing with a smile on his face :_) * 08-22-93 - Brian Costigan: Gorgeous sunny day at Autzen, in Eugene, OR. We had driven seventeen hours for the two shows and the boys didn't let us down. The opener, Jack Straw, was the best version I had ever seen, despite Bobby having trouble with his guitar. After the second verse he walked back stage and Jerry put his head down and scribbled away...he was flying. Bobby heaved his guitar and began to rant and rave. Jerry continued to rip. Then Bobby, outfitted with a new guitar came back out and screamed to Jerry. Jerry lifted his head and nodded. Then "Jack Straw from witchita cut his buddy down." It sounded increadible. Other memorable songs in the first set were masterpiece and music Never. The second set began with a monster Help, Slip, Franklins. When they began to play their system "clipped" twice they were so loud. The space was increadible, verry sureal and trippy. The sun was going down in golden rays directly behind the stage. Everyone was staring into this increadibly golden light. It was beautiful. Undoubtedly one of the best I've seen. * 09-22-93 - Lane Wesselmann: Transiently transformational. Momentarily metamorphic. I wasn't expecting much from this evening, but Murray's appearance made this night among my best with the band. Just a note: I'm sorry my responses may not provide the definitive shows/versions-I'm doing this from memory. Yours, in haste. Lane Wesselmann * 10-31-93 - Josh DeScherer: This Jerryband show was absoultely beyond belief! * 03-18-94 - Casey Roe: Unbroken Chain 1st set closer!!!! One of my last shows. * 03-26-94 - tully blalock: Atlanta--second show ever. I traveled from Orlando. Amazing UJB and the rest of the show was incredible. * 03-27-94 - Ken Kleber: Nassau Coliseum The most amazing AM Dew I've ever heard. JG hit every note perfectly. * 03-30-94 - Jonathan Brill: You know, some nights the boys are just on. This night was indeed one of them. Here Comes>Stranger was an excellent choice for an opener. Unfortunately, the sound didn't really become very loud until the next song, Jack-a-roe. The rest of the set was very nice, including a New Speedway>Promised Land closer. Only one word can describe set 2: Wow. A wonderful Scarlet> Fire made way for a great Playin' into the final Dark Star. Post-space included a nice Stella and a hot Sugar Magnolia. The Liberty encore was all that I needed to send me out with a big smile on my face. Close runners- up to this show are 4-5-91, 3-2-92, 3-20-93, 3-29-95, and 4-5-95. Can you tell I'm a big Spring Tour fan? * 06-24-94 - Joel Kaplan: Listening to Jerry sing Standing on the Moon after a hot day in the Vegas sun. Looking at a full moon. It was spiritual. * 08-01-94 - Dan Stephens: Jerry's Birthday and my second row tickets contributed to an already festive environment. After a super-hot show, I found that I had been grinning ear to ear the entire show!! * 10-01-94 - Steve Dinsmore: There were many, but this was the last of the great shows I attended. To get Help-Slip Franklins, Scarlet Fire and Terrapin all in 1 show was a real treat. * 10-01-94: Great Jerry vocals, long, mellow Scarlet>Fire, nice Terrapin * 10-01-94 - Andy Sullivan: My First One! * 10-14-94 - Dave K.: Scarlet>>FIRE!! INSANE!! * 10-14-94 - Brook Hindley: A great J. Straw opener and a killer Scarlet --> Fire to open the second set! Nothing more needs to be said... * 12-01-94 - John Terrill: I got to take my friend who could not understand what I saw in the Dead to his one and only show. We had lousy seats, upper level, rear of stage, but I didn't care. He couldn't believe that they actually sold seats like that. I don't think he really got into it until the boys broke into Watchtower in the 2nd set. He turned to me, and I could just seem him mouth the words "hey, this is Watchtower." I think he really enjoyed it all in the end. In fact, he was kind of disappointed that they only play one song for the encore. He wanted more. * 02-19-95 - Sabrina Rust: I live in Utah and it was great to be at a home town show. * 03-19-95 - Ben Whitestone: My first Alabama to start the first set and The First Unbroken Chain to end it. Second Set also kicks. The whole Boston 1991 run also should be mentioned. The vibes at the Garden and those shows made me a Head. * 03-19-95 - Erik Almquist: unbroken chain. nuff said. * 03-19-95 - Brian Waite: The suprise breakout of Unbroken Chain! * 03-22-95 - Matthew Grillo: The combination of the weather, the songlist, the drugs, the grand piano, Jerry's white shirt, my beautiful friend Jeanne, beautiful NC Unbroken Chain, Scarlet > Fire!!!!! * 03-22-95 - Mike Bouchard: Seeing Bruce's Grand Piano on stage just before the show * 03-23-95 - Sean Spratt: shut out at phillie on counterfeits, then got to charlotte. Everyone said scarlet>fire was due on thursday...I agreed. Handed my stub to the ticket taker and all of a sudden...I knew...it would be Scarlet... Bruce was with 'em and it was my last best memory of Jerry.. * 03-23-95 - Brian Kapp: Bruce Hornsby rocked the house!!! Unbroken Chain-Scarlet-Fire * 03-23-95 - missy kaspar: i think that this is the right date. it was second night of charlotte. i was with my two best friends. it was my first time on the floor (down front) and also the first time that i got to see bruce play with the boys. i was a very happy girl that night. * 03-27-95 - tony fuesler: great seats over jerrys sholder.killer sugarree.Kind seen at Stone Mt.Next show on 29 was totalatly diffrent acid set also one of my fav.Anybody got a tape of 3/27/95 I would be so happy to relive that nite!! * 03-29-95 - Steve Kline: My first concert. I was praying that would play Help>Slip>Franklin's. After an incredible first set, the boys opened the second with Unbroken Chain. They then ripped into that famous intro for Help. It seemed like I was the only one that realized what was coming, although I knew that that couldn't be true. It was an incredible version that sent me running and jumping, yet at the same time left me completely motionless and in complete and total awe of the musical prowess on stage. If never heard any music by the Dead again I would have been completely satisfied. It was that good. * 03-29-95 - kevin: phil-unbroken chain/nfa last show with jerry...gdtrfb * 04-02-95 - Stephen Lewis: The Dead in my hometown, finally!!! The Pyramid is a great venue for a Dead show. There are many cool places to hang out before the show. The Pinch area and Front Street were packed with Heads as these was the major Shakedown areas. Speaking of which, I could feel a presence in the air that afternoon. I felt the Shakedown in the air, just gotta poke around. I could feel it all day, and when the boys came on stage and were tuning, you could hear those distinct notes and chords to signal what was about to happen. Shakedown was the perfect opener for this Sunday night in downtown Memphis. This version did not disappoint as the jamming was quite intense. I knew we were in for a good night. Same Thing was a bit mellow after a smokin Shakedown, but I after I heard the tapes, I realized that this was actually not a bad selection by Bobby. The Althea that followed was really nice, this was a hot version. Bobby then made the right call by picking up his acoustic and calling Memphis Blues. This continued the trend of "Memphis tunes" started by Jerry Saturday night with Candyman, which, by the way, was an amazing sight--you had to be there. The audience loved Memphis Blues, and Tennessee Jed sent us into a frenzy. Any Memphis deadhead who had been waiting for the Dead to come was definitely pleased by now. "Tennessee, Tennessee, there ain't no place I'd rather be"--wow! Promised Land featuring some nice piano runs by Vince and an enthusiastic chorus rocked out the end of this smokin set. I was exhausted after 45 minutes of nonstop dancin. We were looking for a really good second set to cap the Dead's stay in Memphis and we would not be disappointed. HC Sunshine was not a surprise, but it was a good version. I was really impressed with Eternity, I had heard it in a second set at Soldier's 94 and I think it worked well there. Eternity got really spacey, with nice piano from Vince and guitar by Jerry. Crazy Fingers that followed was a welcomed by the audience, and this was another great tune. By the end of the song Jerry was singing, "But I try..." over and over again, as if he was starting to enter the zone. Crazy Fingers melted right into Estimated, and for me, this was the song of the night. It remains among my favorite versions. Everything was perfect--I love Vince's keys, and Bobby gave us a great performance. After the verses came an intense jamout, with the whole band clicking. Bobby and Phil laid the groundwork for Jerry and Vince to play off of. Vince and Phil took it way out there as the song reached out into space. Drumz was next, and I have to say I don't remember much about it except for walking around the Pyramid and running into my buddy Pete. The Last Time was somewhat of a disappointment out of space, but Jerry completely made up for it with an epic Wharf Rat. Great version, enough said. Not Fade Away was hot, and the crowd was really into it. The NFA chant was one of the best I can remember, with the whole Pyramid singing in unison, "You know our love will not fade away..." I recognized Unbroken Chain from the start, and it was the perfect encore to end the 95 Memphis shows. A great weekend in my hometown, don't tell me this town ain't got no heart! * 05-20-95 - Mike Yui: Dew in Vegas. Was a few feet in front of the little speaker on vince's side. Perfect Sound. You coulda punched me and I wouldn't have noticed. * 05-21-95 - Jeff Arthur: last show I saw live. Las Vegas was an annual excersion when the dead played and I made it every year they played there. I am originally from Oakland and most of my experiences were from the Bay Area. I love your work; keep it up! * 05-22-95 - alexandra mika: las vegas sam boyd stadium sugaree, wang dang! * 06-15-95 - Parker Sides: Beautiful day in Vermont and my one and only show that I made it to tripping out! * 06-15-95 - Tyler Smith: Simply the best all around time I've ever had at a concert!!!!! * 06-15-95 - Thom Crouch: I gathered some friends, rented a twin, and flew us all to Highgate, VT for the XXX show, for many, thier first. I love to bring new pilgrims to enlightenment. * 06-15-95 - John Kaczmarek: It was the only show I saw. Blew my mind away. I remember feeling pulled into a vortex of sound and reality when H.C. Sunshine came pouring over me. Those opening harmonies were pretty intense. * 06-18-95 - bret dawson: one and only * 06-21-95 - Lenny Stubbe Jr.: My first ever Scalet->Fire, and a Dew that I'll NEVER forget!!! * 06-30-95 - Fred Ballew: Bitter Sweet. My last show. My first "Dead" show was sometime in 1965, probably the Mime Troupe Benefit. And Yes, I'm THAT old. Anyway, I was thinking how old Jerry looked, he seemed to move around the stage like an old man. It was a sad thing to see how the once agile young man had put on the years all too soon.... but the man still put together QUITE a show! Standing On The Moon was Incredible! I'll always remember his final "...but I'd rather be with you." Wish you were too Jerry. * 07-02-95 - Jon Murphy: The first (and only show) I went to and all I wanted to hear was a Scarlet-->Fire. It was a great show despite the gate crashing. * 07-08-95: awesome * 07-09-95 - Matt Kennedy: Jerry's last stand, it is a memory to me that stands above the rest for some reason.
