hot 92 show

There was a guy flying an ultra light over the crowd, and Jerry and Bobby are chatting between songs, then Bobby tells the crowd, "Jerry said that's what's called a Texas dragon fly" the crowd cracked up... solid late era show

Here Comes Sunshine, seemed to bring the ole jerry back. He sounded really happy playing that jam and the rest of the show had a joyful undertone to it. The previous three shows of this little "comeback" run were not as high energy. The second night in Colorado comes close though. But Jerry just sounds like he woke up for this one. The Sunshine, FOTD, Althea and Deal all sounded great and that brokedown encore just brings a smile to my face. To be honest, Bobby sounded like he was havin a rougher day then Jerry. First verse of Samson proves that. Great show though.

Security here was harsh. Me and my buddy got popped in the lot smoking a bowl the day earlier. The charge: "felony possession of marijuana IN THE LUNGS!!!" Arizona. Lol. bailed out by 1 am. Then- in the lot the next afternoon- We somehow got blessed with 5th row Jerry side for this show. My closest "seats" show ever. Sure its got some bumps here and there but i got some of my favorites! What a blessed show. My buddy Brian, who had been frequenting the warfeild JGB shows is hard to miss. He's Big and flails when he gets going, so we assume jerry spotted and recognized him.
Well, during brokedown, jerry looks over his glasses right at us and says:
"I love you more than words can tell".
We both shit our pants.
Best memory EVER. Thank you jerry.
Miss you.

Here comes sunshine is a nice treat- clearly well rehearsed.
Jerry tears up passenger at the end big time.
Fotd has nice heartfelt vocals and jerry noodling all over the place. Bob starts to do some weird shit on guitar. Then promptly butchers all the vocals on me &uncle until the Denver man line, but the band is just tearing it up! Its like he cant remember the words, lost in the intense jamming going on. Maggies farm is awesome, but bob spaces the verse about maggies pa, and the "made out of bricks" line. and repeats vinces verse about "ma being the brains behind pa".
Althea is on fire. Wow.
Masterpiece has delicious backup vocals by jerry helping bob through the verses but bob still cant stay focused on words. Jerry's solo is spectacular. Who dosed bob?
Mickey is on congas throughout the show.
Deal jams nicely.
Sampson has a long build up but never slams hard into it, just slowly roars to life. Bob sings WAY off time for the first verse. Its hard to listen to. BUT Jerrys guitar tone is noteworthy here. He TEARS IT UP. Its so tight, Bob gets it going by second verse. Its then gets really powerful. WOW.
A delicious crazy fingers followed by uncle johns shows bob is not in control tonight! His playing is good, but not singing too coherently. But they give him the Playin reprise - cant mess those words up! Nice long teasing lead-in and a good hard punch. After a long d/s they lay down a solid "last time". Bob has a good vocal jam/scream session at the end tries to make up for all nights vocal bunders.
China doll brings it down real nice and its incredibly beautiful. Very tasty leads. Only a handful of shows had crazy fingers and china doll in same show. Jerry really spilling his heart tonight.
Throwing stones starts very chill from the china doll lead in- takes a bit to get going. Bobs gets it it together now and is having fun with this chill throwing stones. It buils steam by the end. Says "Rape the earth today" does not have the long ashes chant. they wind it down to a stop.
Then start up NFA from a dead stop. Its not seamless as some setlists suggest.
Brokedown is the perfect ending to a fun and well played 90's show. Some verses/words got pretty beat up, but its fun to laugh at bob so that counts as bonus entertainment factor. But Instrumentally near perfect. Jerry in **ON**

@Crazy Otto. Bagels in Arizona? Yuck! NYC/NJ or FU.

First and only Dead show. Reading the comments above brings me back to the afternoon show. Due to the earlier rains there was a mud bowl in front of the stage.
Lost my friends so ended up thumbing it and getting a ride back to Tempe. Amazing peak experience, so lucky to have been a part of this slice of history.
