They did CC Rider real fast this night. Very special. Only time they ever did it that way. Part of the great winter roadtrip!

vince-
you must be thinking of another night. ccrider is performed just like any other night bobby made us sit thru it.

Vince is correct. The band went in to a double time ending of CC Rider. You've got to hear it!
-

Got up real close for RRR; remember that security was freaking with the dancing in the aisles. At the end of the show, hears a couple of them being told by their boss to move us along... " hey, this is the first time they've sat down ALL NIGHT!"

Loved the Shakedown opening to 2nd set.

Hey Danny, ever make it home OK?

anonymous,

they indeed took cc rider in double time. it cooks. bobby has never made you sit through anything. you made a choice to attend the shows. therefore, anything you listened to was by your choice. you could have left at any moment.

This was a GREAT SHOW for me.
The way MSA had the walkway 1/2 way up the bowl shape provided a circular 'runway' for a continuous twirling of colorful folks.

Yeah, cc rider= get a beer, take a piss. Good to have Bob in the band, otherwise there wouldn't be a good time to pee during the set (well, except for FOTD). Double time is trouble for anyone trying to take a long piss.

Anyone else remember the house lights inexplicably being turned on full blast for several seconds in the middle of a song??

Yep half way through that cc rider it was more like an Elvis version. I love how so many people are so critical about the dead and so glad I love them more or less unconditionally. Go take a piss and stick your head in the toilet when your finished anon! Whatever, pretty sweet show nevertheless money, money, money, money,money!! Long live the music

Beautiful rendering of that fleet-footed '81 sound - C.C. Rider double-timed, yes, but that entire first set is something to behold - the Bird Song / Let it Grow to close sears.

2nd set is good as well, but for me that first-set energy is what propels this thing to the conclusion. I still can't believe how good that popular AUD sounds.
