Proably the last great Morning Dew. Just heart wrenching. Just beautiful.

Fun show, but was a day show under the outdoor sun. Not the trip I had become acustom to. Plus I did not know that nobody camps in vegas, but lake mead was still fun for the few of us that did do it under the stars. I wish I could go back and do this one again.

Show highlight for me was "Samba in the Rain" as I danced under a spray of water to keep cool. - Thanks for the memory.

One of the worst performances ever. Half step is a complete mess as well as the band.

seems a bit negative dontcha think dave?
the following days show was easily the best of '95, and stack up well against even classic dead years, and this show featured a smiling jerry who even engaged in some stage banter with bob telling fans "bring the people passed out up front. we can stack 'em next to the stage. geez people, you think we do this just for fun?" and laughing with the fans.
the music isnt as good as the following day, but its well played for the time period.
vegas '95 was (IMHO) the last great (very good) run of shows and should be enjoyed by all.
check out the 5/21 versions of "so many roads" (best ever IMO), "days between" (also in the one of the "best ever" category), "spanish jam> other one" and "eyes" among others.
tight playing and tight SINGING. little or no vocal flubs, and high energy from the boys. a '95 show that wont fit on 2 discs. it was a treat.

This was my first and only Dead show, I was 5 months old. Mom's got great pictures of me with the band in the background on stage.

during the last time my buddy shrub looked at me and said 'he sounds like he means it'
we attributed it to the heat, hell Jerry even had shorts on during this trip. I get goosebumps everytime i think of this story . . .

This would have been show #114 for me, but I had a run of bad Saturday shows and decided to skip this one- even though i LIVED in vegas at the time. Everyone told me i missed an epic Dew, but no one mentioned 'The Race is on'. Chased that one forever... Looking back- What a boner move.

@Mikey - I hear you on lamenting missing 'The Race is On'. I finished with 162 shows and the only 'Race is On' I ever caught was this show.

Sadly, the lines were friggin' crazy getting in to the show at the gates and so, yeah, I heard all of it and "saw" the tail end of it. I had never missed a song before due to getting in late, and so when I heard them playing 1/2 Step I was not too upset (I saw lots of those), but when they finished and jumped into The Race Is On while I was still holding my ticket, 10 feet away from the ticket-taker, I nearly started to cry. Arrrggghhhhh.

Oh well. That is just how it goes. When the Grateful Dead played you just got what came your way. Even the worst shows I saw (which were all relegated to the years 1993, 1994, and 1995) were the best places on Planet Earth to be.

A friend of mine was at this show and tells the story about how there was a sports book on the strip who was taking bets for Half Step opener as well as Half Step->Race is On for crazy odds. My friend took the Half Step opener, thinking The Race is On was too tough to predict... Boy did he have a good laugh!
