Wow you've had some bad experiences in Hartford.. I've been fairly lucky I guess. And I've seen 26 DMB shows there

This probably has to do with their catalogue at the time, but the "breather" song of this show is I'll Back You Up. That's pretty damn nice.

yeah, same. I've never had any of those bad DMB experiences there, and been to all the same shows as you I think.

Oh, and LT 3 is easily my favorite/most played Live Trax.

I've only seen 20 shows there. But, back to the riots in '99 we had something stupid happened pretty much every year. Still, had a ton of great memories.

Sorry to hear that. I think a lot of it that since I/we go to so many shows there (DMB and others), we know where to park to still have a good time, but avoid a lot of the riff raff.

Sorry to hear about your stuff though.

well, we have stayed that the Red Roof pretty much every year

What is it now, still the motel 6? Only the year we were robbed we stayed at the crowne plaze and were moving from the that to a frat house at trinity (why all our stuff was in the car to get stolen). The red roof always treated us well.

Back when the Jai Alai lot was open the cops would dress up in riot gear and push us out of the lot around 5 or 6 even though the show didn't start til 7 (or 8 on a friday). That was probably the only frustrating experience I've had.. but it happened for at least a few years. Luckily I never saw any of the riots in 99 even though I parked in those lots all three nights. I eventually learned not to park in the "official" Meadows lots anymore.. it's a lot less hassle.

Also, it's amazing how different the Phish & DMB lots are in Hartford. It's night and day.

100% agree. DMB and any other show really.

Same goes for the lawn. I don't mind sitting lawn at other shows there. Mayer, Pearl Jam, Phish, etc, never a problem.

I remember one year (maybe '03 N2?) we parked in those jai alai lots. We left the lot to find friends in another lot, maybe around 4 or so? Then before the show we tried to get back to our car so people could get sweatshirts or something. Lot was completely empty. The cops were there and wouldn't let us in. The conversation went like this, and keep in mind the cop was in his car and everything he said to us he said over his loudspeaker

Cop: STAY ON THE MAIN SIDEWALK. STAY ON THE MAIN SIDEWALK.
Us: We need to get to our car!
Cop: STAY ON THE MAIN SIDEWALK.
Us: It'll just take a minute, we just need to get something out of the car real quick.
Cop: *pause* UMMMMM... HMMMM.... UH..... STAY ON THE MAIN SIDEWALK.

Yeah definitely.. the only time the lawn is unbearable is DMB. Seems like people are there for the music and not the party for other bands for the most part.

Yeah it was ridiculous.. out of nowhere they started kicking us out of the lot when the band didn't even come on til like 4 hours later. That was quite frustrating. Imagine if you had left your tix in the car instead of just a sweatshirt. You had no way of knowing they wouldn't let you get back to your car.

I love the transition Roi takes with his solo from Boyd on Seek Up.

I remember some bitching about getting another Seek Up >> L&L >> Rapunzel so soon after the one on LT1 but these two versions are very different from each other.

It's the common "we already have some of song x, give us something with song y" complaint. Still happens today.
