Excellent show, from beginning to end (ok, could have been a better encore, but still). Great Phil recreation of the SF Earthquake (w/vocals!) post-drums, pre-Other One. The entire set of tunes post-drums was fantastic.

Yeaahhh Baby... I don't know what to ad except that I saw Jerry eating what looked kile a tripple w/cheese with fries and a coke as he smoke his cigarette...and i just kept on pokkin around....for 13 more years of dead tours

22 songs!!I agree great post drums. Sugar Mag/Playin Reprise/Sunshine Daydream Ouch!!!The boys pulled out some great shows in Hartford.

I had general admission seat on the floor for this. There were about 200 people lined up behind us at the door, and they opened the doors around the corner first instead. Everybody turned, and in my hurry to get down the stairs, twisted my ankle badly. I'll never forget Jerry singing the opening to Bertha, "I had a harrrrd run......." Big, big smile on my face...

LLRain "can't stand it another f'n day"
Ship Of Fools_hauntingly beautiful

Bobby sings the second verse of playin in the band twice. I thought verses 1 and 2 were switched but that is not the case

Pretty sure this is the only time they ended a set with Sugarmag> Playin> Sunshine. Where's a Perrins stat when you need it. Either way this is stellar dead.

But one question, why are there so many heads that hate on Don't Ease Me In? It's not an epic encore like others, but for a really dank show like this, the boys were probably exausted, so a short, sweet, and to the point E. Maybe it's me and i just don't see the downer in the song. oh well. peace and love.

I remember getting hassled by Hartford Police. First time I remember City Police as security at a show. The earthquake recreation was surreal.
