Beautiful show. The weather played along with the band the whole time including a huge rainbow over the stadium during Knockin'. Amazing weekend.

one of only 4 90's "smokestack lightnins" and the 1st "spanish jam" since '87. jerrys voice is strong and the band cooks throughout. as already mentioned the weather was beautiful during "knockin". a truly wonderful show. one of the better ones that year.

ps- only "high time" from '92.
-gdjake (08/13/2007)

only "cumberland blues" from '92. you know, the more i think about this show and listen to it (got it on right now) the more special i realize it is. i highly recommend it to anyone who likes this time period of the band. im of the opinion that the deads best period is between '87 and '93 (with '88 to '92 being the strongest yet) and this show illustrates why. vocals werent always the best, but the PLAYING was at an all time high, the tempo was perfect, and the songbook enormous. just my .02.

Drove across country with my brother from DE to CA, and then road tripped from San Diego to Las Vegas to see this show. His first Dead show, my 25th (which was pretty cool--Silver Bowl, Silver Anniversary, get it?) Unbelievable coincidence of thunder/lightning w/ no rain during space. Couldn't have scripted it any better. Shrooms definitely helped, but it was a fantastic show nonetheless.

Interesting post Terrapin jam. Jerry bailed so Phil and Bobby really led this one. Very solid show and solid Vegas run overall

Nice to see this show getting the respect it deserves. This and the next night are among the best of the '90's.

TOTALLY agree Jerry. This run was the strongest I saw and I caught some good ones. Every show was well played, creative, and had breakout songs. The energy from the crowd was palpable, the weather played along, and the band looked to be having fun. Plenty of other great shows in the '87-'93 time period but this may be the best 3 show run. Just my .02.

I was about ten feet from Phil with my then GF. High Time ends and the applause dies down. I screamed at the top of my 26-year-old lungs: "CUMBERLAAAAND" Some other guys echoed my request. They played Maggie's Farm and then...yep...Cumberland. The heads around me were shaking me by the shoulders saying: "NO WAY!" The naysayers cite in-ear monitors and/or setlists for Vince. I think they heard it and just couldn't think of a reason not to play it. Nevada is a mining state after all. And it had been about 37 shows since the last one.

Dave, is your middle name "I know you?"

-Anonymous (03/20/2014)

Randomly ended up here. Was a weird time in my young life at this point I was in Vegas perhaps on a whim. But to this day I can remember myself back of the floor as the Spanish Jam rose up in this really majestic and ominous way out of space. Relistens never gave me the goose bumps of being there but man that nite I could feel (once again) the sheer force of the band. They had us all that nite.
