Written by on Sunday, July 3, 2022

I’ve seen thousands of reviews over the years, but this actually explains “A Deadhead”…
“REVIEW: stella
As a new fan of the Dead it was years before I realized the importance of the tears streaming down
the face of the girl beside me. She seemed to be having a religious experience. Now I know why”

REVIEW: great
Great memories… Got in. Don’t know how. But thanks to the clowns, it was a circus.

REVIEW: huh?
I wasn’t at this show so I can’t rate the overall experience the 1 or 2 stars it seems to get.
Sorry it was hot, muggy with bad cops and poor stadium sound, none of that affects this
clean soundboard. I have listened to it several times and the band is playing great. I can’t
fault them for playing the new songs..The sound quality is nice, thanks to Charlie Miller.

REVIEW: Happy Independence Day
I wasn’t at this show, didn’t have to deal with the crowds or heat, but damn, musically this
show is smoking!! I like how they played a lot off In The Dark but also the standards. In
the first set, the Dead sound so focused, tearing it up at full speed

REVIEW: Pure fun front to back
I’m sure it was hot and yucky, but wow, what a listen I just had to this. Totally blown
away. I only saw the Anaheim show on this tour, and for years afterwards I was kind of
meh about the pairing. Time has a funny way of changing your opinion about things, and
your state of mind. I haven’t enjoyed listening to a show this much in a very long time.

REVIEW: First Dead Show
This was my first show (my first concert in fact). It was also the the first time I dosed. My
16 year old mind was blown! Our car broke down a few miles from the stadium. Didn’t
really matter as we were not moving anyway. We pushed it off the side of the road and
left it there. Once inside the show I was dumbfounded by the swirling colored skirts and
pulsating tie dyes. The music seemed to wash over me in waves and it took my breath
away. I lost my shoes. lost my friends. Found another friend. She got me home. Back in
the lot she handed me the Deadheads Handbook. I read through it on our way out of the
lot while fireworks whizzed and banged around us. I remember thinking I had been let in
on some amazing sort of secret that had been hiding in plain site under the guise of a
regular old rock band.

REVIEW: Distant memory
We all had a great time. My memory of the show is a little tainted by the frog acid. Don’t
remember the heat. Don’t remember the pigs. There were a few douchebags. I clearly
remember Touch of Grey. We had a marvelous time.
