I’ve seen thousands of reviews over the years, but this actually explains “A Deadhead”…
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: decent show
Sound is superb! decent show. I just can never find my car at this venue. I usually have to wait
until mostly everyone leaves.
Great first set all around, pushing 4 stars. Scarlet>Fire is strong with Jerry really getting into his
solos on Fire. Strong start to the East/Midwest Summer tour. O1 is strong. Stella is sloppy, and
Jerry never sings the “Gonna Make ’em shine” line, due to the confusion and tempo issues. Sat
Nite and Box are average. Sounds is 5 stars all around. Crispy and beefy.This was the debut of
Easy Answers, strategically sandwiched between bookends of Music Never Stopped (to ease the
REVIEW: Cannot believe this is ’93
Sugaree through Scarlet-Fire are as solid as can be.
REVIEW: guy jumped off 3rd tier!
If I recall properly, this was a miserable, rainy, sluggish show. I have spent years trying to find
anyone else who saw what I saw that night. During drums/space I happened to look over my
shoulder to see a guy in only shorts, standing on the railing of the 3rd tier. As I watched he just
stepped off and fell ( to me ) floated (to him) down to the first tier, bypassing the mezzanine
which was tucked beneath the 3rd tier. He landed on some poor folks. It was terrible sight as this
was like a 50ft. drop- or more. Anyone else see or hear of this? Good Times.
REVIEW: Guy jumped off 3rd tier
You are correct. Funny I was just listening on XM to Music never stopped>easy answers.and
decided to verify this was the same show they played Estimated and the guy jumped. Phil’s side I
was one section down from him about 5 rows back i remember it being during Estimated which
was right before D/S. My recollection is he jumped right when they sang rising up to paradise
because I thought how tripping must he have been to surreal and yes he seemed to be floating
REVIEW: 6/5/93 thought I would float away with the weather
I too was at this show. I have never been so wet. I did not see the guy float off the 3rd tier, as I
was on the floor close to the stage. I loved this show, although I think it took me like 2 hours to
get out of the parking lot. I don’t think my sneakers dried out for a week. It was the better show of
the 2, but the weather was much kinder on Sunday.
REVIEW: I am the Giant Stadium Jumper
That was me. It was first song second set. I didnt think i could fly, I thought I could clear it.
Dodging security was pretty Lucy blinded that evening. First show of the summer tour, midwest
boy, runaway w Jerry and livin on the west coast. HELLO cosmic school. I broke my legs in 23
places (18 & 5) made the rest of tour, cut my cast off after the last show up in an Oregon
reservoir. Stil hangin in Chico, Still tour music all sumer long! Long Live Live Music!!!!
REVIEW: To the jumper…
If you were the jumper, thanks for ruining an otherwise good show for many people. I didn’t see
you take the leap, but many of us in our section were so concerned that someone was seriously
injured or killed that we were bummed out the rest of the show. It was the 1st time I couldn’t get
into Scarlet>Fire. I didn’t see it happen, but we could see all the Emergency personnel working
on you and the person you hot most of the 2nd set.
REVIEW: I believe I could fly Dude
I was at this show sitting in the lower tier. Section 133, row 26, seat 24. Still have my ticket stub. I forget what
song was playing but I remember hearing a loud crash followed by a huge commotion behind me, over my right
shoulder. Someone said a guy fell from the third level. It’s really the only thing I remember from the show.
Wouldn’t have been able to name one song had I not seen it listed here on the archive. The next day on WNEW
the DJ said, ” …And anyone who was a t the Grateful Dead show last night, that guy who fell from the third level
lived. He’s in the hospital…” I couldn’t believe it. Thought for sure he died. Glad you’re OK, dude. I’ll have to
give this a listen to see what i missed.
