front row smoking kind bud all night .. between sets my friend Dan H. was sitting on the stage while Jerry was tuning up and security told him he had to get off the stage and Jerry G. turned around and said no no he’s fine he won’t be sitting very long ..

I didn’t know there was an opening band, then Bobby strolled out with Rob Wasserman.

My 1st JGB show & what a show it was! I was just five years in, in 89, & thought the grateful dead experience couldn’t be matched. After seeing this show, a whole new revelation opened up for me. Pad this show with Clarence Clemons & (also) my 1st Weir/Wasserman show; this was a religious experience! Although the crowd was familiar, there was just a “different” feel for JGB shows…. Hard to explain! Unfortunately, haven’t come across any quality recordings of this tour (w/Clemons)?

My first time seeing Jerry was not a Dead show – it was this one. Drove from Springfield, MO with a few guys. We showed up in the wee hours and the very kind people at the facility not only allowed us to camp in the parking lot, but opened the gates so we could wash up and use the restroom. I can’t say I remember the show all that well, but I remember the experience – I was hooked.

Does anyone remember Bobby singing “misty” a Capella before JGB. said something about losing a bet?
