This would be my dream back to back weekends.

Anyone here see both these shows? I always thought Jimmy Page and Jerry Garcia would've made some interesting music together. Jerry getting spacey with Jimmy on No Quarter or Dazed and Confused.....Jimmy Jamming on Eyes of The World....or both playing nice acoustic on Box of Rain or Going To California.

Furthur will be in town the same night (July 28th) the New Riders of the Purple Sage are playing the Lincoln in Raleigh. What a pleasant surprise it would be if Lesh and Weir showed up at the New Riders show after they finish their concert at Walnut Creek.

Saw Van Halen (Hagar) and Tom Petty on back to back weekends back in around 95. Not too shabby. Think I saw about 13 major concerts that year, blew alot of money!!

Yes, I went to both of these. It was (for me) the start of weeks months heck five years years of 2 or three live music acts or concerts a week c/o Bill Graham Presents and numerous clubs and promotions throught the yay area. Those were heady music times to be growing up in and near San Francisco Bay. As you can see from the first line on the flier, these Kezar concerts really were the first "Days on the Green." Note the ticket prices? Of course today (2019) for the respective fan bases of the Grateful Dead and Led Zeppelin, the concerts at Kezar are considered absolutely historic. But I gotta tell you that a part of growing up for everyone is "who knew?" memories! Oh, after the Dead finished we had enough time to drive over to Winterland and see Peter Frampton open for Foghat with Johnny Winter headlining! I think that was the one where Johnny fell into the crowd drunk and they threw him back up on the stage! Now the following week at Kezar was the Tubes and Roy Harper opening for Led Zeppelin but frankly, the crowd was having none of either act even when Fee Waybill suggested everyone share from this giant bag of white powder that he dumped into the crowd. 20 feet from the stage the energy of Led Zeppelin and the crowd was and is unforgetable. Like I said, a part of growing up for everyone is "who knew" moments and remembering them! "I may be old but I saw all the cool bands" --losgatos_dale
