I never was fortunate enough to see the Grateful Dead in California, but I have pinpointed the first show I ever attended:

https://archive.org/details/gd1980-0...r.91694.flac16

What was the price for your GA tickets in 1987? Do you remember? It's not on the image you posted. I guess it was on the part they tore off.

Default Thats a Stellar show

Second set Althea,,,,Lost sailor Saint,, Deal,,,,and look how much longer the setlist were Jerry was on the other side of the stage,,,Ur a lucky guy to have caught them right after Brent joined the Band,, they were so hot back then! I saw them in 82 in Philly,,,was at english town in 77 but too young to go in. in 76 I stood outside the Trenton fair grounds and listed to Skynard play their whole show,,,does that count

Default Here's a photo from a show I attended at the Spectrum in 1987



There is a bit of a backstory behind this show for me. I gotta pinpoint exactly what the date was, but the backstory remains the same.
