Week 113 (1/20/11)
Q: In July, 1987, the Grateful Dead were scheduled/rumored to be playing in this city, but instead played two shows in Roanoke, VA. What city was it?
Anybody have a guess?
I guessed Hampton, but have no clue!
That would be my guess too. But I really don't know.
I'm going to say Richmond. They'd played Hampton that spring. Since it wasn't Roanoke, it seems the rumored location would be someplace in close proximity to Roanoke, but not much further away, which would rule out some cool place like Saratoga. Maybe Charleston, WV? I imagine after the Richmond '85 show it was considered a good place to see them, but probably the locals didn't want them back.
