last show in CT

#29602 3 years, 4 months ago
why did the GD stop playing in CT after 1990? did it have to do with the scene? - up until then they played several shows a year in CT, and they were always good (judging from recordings - I never saw the GD).

I'm listening to the last show they played here now 3/19/90 Hartford Civic Center and its pretty damn good so far (i'm only on Picasso Moon at the moment) .... apparently this show has the last fast paced Eyes of the World.

they probably outgrew the city and couldn't play there because of the size the scene

sounds about right. I think I heard stories of them not letting people camp one year and there being heads all over the city

the venue is also right across from the state capital.... so they didn't appreciate being overrun with heads.

It was my understanding that after 1987 they were baned, but somehow got two shows slipped in somehow (we heard promises of increased security, no camping, etc... ). I caught one of the two shows and had a fun time....

You could only buy the tickets locally and they were pretty much last minute sales, too, as a precaution.

maybe it was after 88' they were banned besides the two 90's shows because these were there last times here...

03/26/87- Hartford Civic Center - Hartford, CT
03/27/87- Hartford Civic Center - Hartford, CT
04/03/88- Hartford Civic Center - Hartford, CT
04/04/88- Hartford Civic Center - Hartford, CT
04/05/88- Hartford Civic Center - Hartford, CT
03/18/90- Hartford Civic Center - Hartford, CT
03/19/90- Hartford Civic Center - Hartford, CT

It seemed to me like heads over ran again in 2009 when The Dead played there.... That may have been the first time since 90' that Bobby and/or Phil played there, I know they played The Meadows in Hartford though (Ratdog, Phil and Friends)
