THIS WAS MY FIRST GREATFUL DEAD SHOW!!!
I WAS 15 AND ABSOLUTLY BLOWN ON MY ASS BY THE BAND!!! I SNUCK TO THE SHOW BY BUS, VIA THE PORT AUTH> OF NEW YORK!!! THANK_YOU!!!
This was my sweetie's birthday! What a great,full, birthday show! We were on tour big time in 1985, but would'nt you know it, we were in Oregon at home, picking mushrooms out in the fields on this day! I picked sooo many, I could hear them popping up from the ground! :) He has a great tape of the show, though.
peace through music
ok...............I am guilty of this......Just this once..........and I did not crash the gate..........it opened to let a car out.....and i went threw along with 50 other deadheads.
I was at the Giant game in the afternoon and my brother and I had THOUGHT we could scalp tickets to the show afterwards.......NOT!!
Once thru the gate..... i had 20 dollar bill under my giant ticket stub........hoping the ticket guy would let me in......
Just then....a side door flew open and let us ticketless heads in.
The Giants did win
This was my first show!!! Great setlist with some nice jams. Sone "commercial" tunes for the newbie. I was instantly hooked!!

Nice twist to open set 2. Supplication Jam was just right for the groove we were on.
This is the one the infamous break in show. And for me the only time I broke into a show. People were jumping the fence everywhere. Someone popped the door from the inside, got in,wlked casual...lights dim...Touch of grey breaks out, the place erupts!!!
Goose bumps just telling the story

I remember my then-boyfriend and I could afford a set of tickets for only one of the shows. When they arrived by mail, I realized I could get creative and make a pair for the second night. My address had been printed on the same paper stock as the ticket (and there was another one that was the receipt). This was back in the old days of typewriters ... I carefully erased all the print, and the IBM Selectric at my office had a type ball that closely matched the typeface on the real tickets. I recreated a set of tickets for the other night (I still remember typing "DON LAW PRESENTS"), and they worked! Made it worth the drive from Boston to NJ. This was back before scanners at the door -- that would never fly these days!
That was kind of the highlight of the show. There was a weird vibe at the Meadowlands ... not mellow, kind of unsafe-feeling ... I had attended groovy, beautiful outdoor shows that summer, and the harshy-lit arena and hostile NYC atmosphere cast a scary and depressing pall over the shows. So I'd have to say those were my LEAST favorite shows of all that I attended! (Maybe it was karmic payback for the fake tickets!)
