Saw the Dead maybe 100 times. This was my favorite show. I've seen a lot of hot shows, this one was humid.

This was my First dead show too. Age 16 rode out from Rochester with some dead heads bought a ticket for $10 outside the arena. The opening Band set was awesome,and as far as the Grateful Dead's sets; don't be fooled, this is a deadly show!!

I believe The Band came out and did Down South in New Orleans with the Dead after Revolution Encore. I may be wrong but that's how I remember it!However I was on Valium for the whole show due to a motorcycle accident and injured back earlier in the day of the show!

This was my first and only Dead Show. I did not know the Dead in high school, but my first year roommate at Penn State was an organic ripe Dead Head. 3 years later I went from State College with some friends as the only non tripping member. It was an awesome show, but I enjoyed The Band the most and the can of worms in the stadium second. Tripping people are amazingly enjoyable especially after the show when the lights go up and the bad trips are visible. Its was without dought an experience I value because it was the transitional time of the drug affair of the 60's,70',80's and the Worst Dead music in 87 which made them more popular than ever unfortunately for our ears, the collapse of The Band, and the crack down and sterilization of concert events. There was actually something wholesome to the gyrating tripping happy(except for the bad trips) drug affairs going on at that concert compared to the orderly, homogeneous, non expressive cords of wood at concerts 30 years later. Orwell was wrong about 1984, but maybe the year was'nt the importance. Great experience from the time of getting out of the car to getting back in. My kids think we are boring and stiff, no, just glad we didn't have tweets, and instagram in the 70' and 80's. That's Orwell. Poor bastards.

Nice 15 min Shakedown opener
- (12/09/2016)

This was about my 10th show but the LARGEST venue I had ever seen them play in. It was a real good show w/The Band opening. A nice Shakedown opener + there is an interesting Bob jam post Terrapin and pre drums and we all loved the Revolution encore. The Carrier Dome has an artificially suspended ceiling, meaning most of the entry/exit doors are revolving doors, to keep the air pressure/vacuum correct for properly inflating the roof. As we were leaving the building, we started down a long corroder. Suddenly, we started getting "PULLED" down the hallway towards the doorways at the end of the hall - by the time we got to the door we were almost running and literally got spit out of the building. Turns out, someone had popped open one of the actual doorways (an emergency exit) which created a vacuum and sucked us right out of the building. We ended up sitting up on a hill above this doorway for several hours after the show, just watching it "SPIT" deadheads out of the building, absolutely hilarious. The yellow dove clean up sheet we had all shared before the show only added to the intensity/insanity of this situation...makes me smile just reminiscing about it.....

They had advertised on the dead hotline that Tom C was also appearing on campus the same night as the Dead. Tom's start was listed as 1 hour after the Dead show ends. Tom was performing in one of the college clubs. I assumed it was a no brainier that Tom would sit in with the Dead for a song or two and maybe I would finally get to see a Rare Dark Star.
Needles to say Tom did not join them and I have always been curious as to why not. Anyone have any inside info?
