“The second set-opening Touch Of Grey is a triumphant rendition, one that Dick Latvala, when he first heard it, commented ‘that’s the best Touch Of Grey I’ve ever heard!’ This was the Dead’s first full stadium tour as headliners (they played stadium tours in 1986 with Dylan and Petty, and in 1987 with Dylan), and they played so well during this tour that they made these massive venues feel intimate.” – David Lemieux
