My first show! Not a bad one to start with, eh? Along with the next night in Hampton, two great shows to start with.
Having much trouble finding either of these two shows on tape, and would like to get both? I've searched and searched, but just cannot find these, so I must be looking in all the wrong places.
Any suggestions?
Much thanks --

Does anyone remember during the Scarlet-Fire...the stage turned into a castle complete with flags and a large wooden draw bridge? Remember during the Fire the draw bridge opened up and a dragon came out and was spewing fireballs that rolled across the floor as Jerry hit crescendo after crescendo? You could actually feel the heat…that was pretty cool.

Well, I thought I remembed the draw bridge and dragon but then I wasn't sure due to my condition at the time.

It was an awesome show in any case. :-)

Besides the dragon part, I should have also pointed out that Mickey came out from behind his drums and played talking drum as he and Jerry ripped back and forth during Fire. Oh the memories....

Was there seriously a dragon shooting fire on stage? And if so, who the hell built something like that?
-Murphy (11/13/2013)

There was no dragon with fire on the stage, I was on the floor at this show and it was oppressively hot on the floor so maybe you thought a dragon was blowing fire, people were dropping like flies down there from the heat. I eventually ended up right at the barrier center stage, yes Bobby spit on me, he spit when he sang sometimes for those who don't know hence the t-shits that I saw at some shoiws that said "Bobby Spit On Me". What a great show, loved it. The hightligh was Scaarlet Fire. Did not know it at the time, but the redhead I met in the parking lot before the show, I eventually married, we were both from Jersey.

29th BUCKET while there was dragon fire on the stage. Dragons were flying around while they were playing BUCKET.

Jerry, Mickey, Dan Healy, and the crowd all go crazy during Scarlet > Fire. Not to be missed.
