I still have the stub. all these hippies are walking around wanting tickets and there at the door for $22.50. that was the last time I ever saw anything like that! great show!

Great show. Half way thru Shakedown Street I remember watching a good 10,000 dead heads climbing over the 8 foot wall to get to the floor.

I concur. Great show all around. Decent energy. Los Lobos opened the show, but don;t remember if the Dead invited them out to play during their sets?? Shakedown opener...maybe because we were next to NYC?? Victim still trying to find it's perfect placement in a show. Certainly not the first set, IMO.

My last show - moved overseas 2 weeks later and was still there when brother Jerry died. Altogether a great show & crowd. I'll never forget when they turned on the video monitor for the 2nd set, which gave the other 90% of the crowd a good view. They panned each band member for ~10 seconds and saved JG for last. Crowd response at that point sounded like a jet taking off!

First show in a big stadium after 10 years of smaller places after just coming back from 6 months living in the Middle East, was blown away from the electric energy that I saw. The whole place was ablaze with NJ/NY energy.

Just now re-listening to this great sounding show from the Giants Stadium boxed set. All around enjoyable performance. However, this show is a little unusual for me in that I found that I preferred the 1st set over the 2nd set. Two reasons I favor the 1st set:

#1 To my ears, the show opening Shakedown-Jack Straw- West LA is the best performed and highest energy sequence in the entire show. The rest of the 1st set is solid as well, and they close the set with a spectacular Bird Song.

#2 Mind you, the 2nd set is good. The high point (in my opinion) is the set closer when Jerry lays down a scorching jam during NFA. That said, there were so many great shows and 2nd sets during this Summer Tour that in comparison, the bulk of this set rates just kind-of average. Besides the hot NFA, nothing else really jumped out at me as really extraordinary.

Don't get me wrong...good show...definitely worth a listen. However, I would reckon this show like an airline ride; buckle your seat belt for the take-off and landing, but once you reach cruising altitude feel free to move about the cabin.
