Attendees of this show
Nevilles came out during drums and stayed through the second set.
The Nevilles were fantastic! Remeber the thunder and lightning during drums! Great show!
We almost didn't make it through the intense thunder storms on the way there, and had to pull over several times. The band took a 10-15 minute break between When I Paint My Masterpiece and Tennessee Jed, as securtity asked everyone to leave the field area and seek shelter inside the staduim until the lighting passed.
It was quite an experience.
Everything from Uncle John's Band through Knocking On Heaven's Door was fantastic. The jam between Uncle John and Drums is on the Infrared Roses album as the Post-Modern Highrise Table Top Stomp track (w/Willie Green III).
I remember nature's light show quite well. I took a friend to his first show that. I was worried that he'd wnat to leave because of the rain, so I spent half the afternoon denying it would happen. As the show started, I admitted "it's going to rain." He laughed and said "It's going to pour." Neither of us cared though.
We were right next to the soundboard. No one made any serious effort to get us off the field. And the show was amazing! Only time I actually saw The Nevilles join the boys on stage.
This was a good show. Nevilles were cool. Somebody clipped the clutch cable on my bike and I was stranded in Jersey for two days getting the bike fixed. Just awful. Jersey scenes pretty much represented the worst possible scenario.
if you listen to the tapes you can hear the crowd cheering during one of the tennessee jed instrumental parts...it kicked the band into fourth gear...absolutely amazing
There was a huge lightning flash during music right after Bobby sang peels of thunder line. Very fun show the best time I ever had inside Giants stadium
DKNJ: The only things I remember from this show are "Jack-A-Roe", the crazy ass weather, and seeing a sandal float by in the front row of the lower tier. I think Jerry was wearing a black Polo shirt, too.
Jerry also sang "...you know you're bound to wind up WET!" during Tennessee Jed.
It was a really fun show without a doubt.

This was good fun and the set list looks great on paper. But between the rain and so many people crowding the florr, the show seemed distant. The tape also proves that the music was a bit sloppy - strange in a way coinsidering how hot this tour was in general. I also remember the Neville Brothers popping out at the end of the second set. Security guard on floor was passing around a big fattie. No joke. This is also the only show out of the 25+ I attended that I do not have a ticket stub for as it simply disintegarted in the downpour...
