Woodstock ‘94 when Bobby sat in with The Band. That ‘95 Highgate show was crazy. We saw port-a-johns get knocked over face down when the fences fell. People came out covered head to toe in shit and piss. Truly a shitty scene if there ever was one.

I guess Englishtown at 150K and then Oxford Plains at 135K. Was also at JFK 87 which was said to be around 70K and FTW at around the same.

I've been to JFK, '89, but I thought Rich stadium in Buffalo held more(+70k).

One of those two.

For me the two shows at JFK in Philly: 1987 and 1989.

I figured either JFK, RFK or that Oxford Plains Speedway up in Maine.

JFK seating capacity was 98,000
There had to be at least 20,000 dancing heads on the field in “89”
And yes it was one hot and humid day
Dodging lions and a-wasting time

Golden gate park polo fields in 91 for bill graham tribute. Crowd estimates of 300,000 though we were by one of the goal posts so reasonably close to stage. Not sure how to post pics but Google it. Huge crowd in massive space.

Rich Stadium July 4th 1986. Seven of us rented an RV and had one of the best times of my life. If only we could just do it one more time.
such a long long time to be gone, and a short time to be there
