This was my first show. Some older friends of mine at Oxford College made me promise not to "run off with the tour" before they would leave me to find my seat. After the show I knew all too well why they made me promise that. It was all I could do to return to Oxford with them that night. WOW!

Yeah man...I was fuckin' double dosed and completely gone in the upper deck of the Omni for this bad boy.....the best LLR I have ever heard...a hippy chick was blowin'bubbles and I thought it was notes from ol' Jer's guitar raining down on my head...........

this was the show where i really "got it". Candyman located the sweet spot for the duration. second set 1/2 step opener was crispy and heartbreakingly epic. LLRain i had never heard and was hair standing up and weeping at the end.

Just so happened this show popped up in succession, 26 years to the day after it was played. Pretty good show to boot. The first set was well played and almost every tune was on point,couple of hicups here and there in Grey, but thats really it. Then the second set just explodes from the start, and i don't think the dust settled til the next morning. The Truckin' -> Miracle transition was one of the best i've ever heard, just comes in outta no where after one altered lick in the Truckin' Outro. God Damn these boys can still play.

Can't believe i actually listened to heads when they told me i would hate the 80's. From 1980 to this show, i have yet to hear one show that was complete crap(With the exeption of the shows right before the coma. Yes, there rough patches here and there, but thats just character. If every show was "perfect" then none of them would be.

And i can say without a doubt in my head, that jerry's coma was the best thing that coulda happened to him. Gave him the swift kick in the ass he needed (hence the lyrics in Push Comes to Shove) to realize what he was doing to himself and the rest of the band. This show proves it, he's enjoying the music and yet doesn't sound disconected from it like the mid 80's sounded. Can't wait to get to '89.
