Notes
  • comments on opener from lostlivedead "The Grateful Dead had been booked for March 15, 16 and 19 at the Nassau Coliseum. Their scheduled opening act was their Marin County compatriots The Sons Of Champlin, who had recently released an album on Columbia as well (the great Welcome To The Dance). However, after the first night, the Sons found out that the entire family of bassist David Schallock had been murdered, in a terrible tragedy. The Sons all rushed home. Who filled in as the Dead's opening act? Well, apparently the New Riders played with the Dead the other two nights (there's even a tape of March 19)."
  • The first two shows sold out by word of mouth in two-and-a-half hours, and at one point Ticketron moved 6,000 tickets in 31 minutes (Grissim 1973). This led to addition of the third show on the 19th.
