I must of the finest live concert experiences ever!! Brent was on this night!!

Good show, but it hurt my feelings not to get Estimated - Eyes into drums. Oh well. Black Peter was a surprise.

probably the most rocking scarlet-fire I have ever heard

It was great to see Jerry after his illness. He was in fine form as was Brent.

Wow this show made me a Deadhead. I actually had an out of body experience-I was floating around out in space during one of the jams and landed back on the floor just in time for the next verse. Wow!! However, I did get thrown out by the cops for firing up, trying to keep things going sometime in the second set. It will be 20 years in a few days(today is 3/20/07) and I plan to celebrate the memories!!

'So What' jam before Sugar Magnolia to open
the 2nd set.

This was my first dead show and I remember being psyched to hear Scarlet>Fire at my first show. I remember Fire being really good and I loved the Sugar Mag to start the 2nd set and Sunshine Daydream to end. Just one of those things that only the dead would do. All in all a great initiation for me.

My second show. This is where i "got on the bus".
I only had a cassette of american beauty/working mans. Sugar mag was the only song i knew. I thought they played it the whole 2nd
FYI, The hampton colliseum exterior triangle roof sections are actually skulls stacked together like in the roman catacombs. I saw it with my own eyes!
I remember everyone singing together, and would subsequently have to breathe at the same time. I could actually feel the barometric pressure inside fluctuate as 20,000 people breathed in and/or out at the same time. Whoa!
Or was that me just tripping??
What an incredible night.
I bought "for the faithful" the next day. I would get shut out of the next 3 of 4 shows i attended...
Thats before i discovered mail order and tapers tickets. The rest is history.
Thank you for a real good time!
