Atom User Reviews for Grateful Dead Meet-Up 2018
so nice seeing Jerry smile and having a ball on stage
What a great birthday present for Jerry. Seeing the band on film, like seeing them live, is a one-of-a-kind experience. Show was marred by projectionist muting the sound for the first two numbers. Encore Knocking on Heaven’s Door: Priceless
The Dead are timeless. I hope these "meetups" are.
Is it 8/1/19 yet?
Such a joy to see the old lineup. I was almost in tears watching Jerry and Brent interact. This was my first meet up. It’s now gonna be on my perpetual calendar. I immediately went home and started pulling out the live concerts on vinyl. Can’t wait u til next year!!! Bravo👏
What a beautiful show for a beautiful man! Happy Birthday Jerry!
Happy birthday, Jerry! Awesome show!
When Jerry is having fun, it's always a great time!! Thank you for yet another memorial show!
Happy birthday Jerry Nice way to spend my night off
I remember seeing this show live almost 29 years ago so it was great seeing it again. It was great to see Jerry smiling and having fun doing what he did so well.
So enjoyable .. took me back to the days. They were having such a great time at that show..everyone was smiling and it came through in the music.
Loved it....but the volume needs to be turned up!
It’s always a pleasure seeing the greats. Happy birthday Jerry see you next year
Epic concert as usual from the Dead!
Great night at the Grateful Dead 2018 Meet-Up. 3 hrs.of Dead music with good people in attendance appreciating all of it !
The Dead in great form, and Jerry Garcia in a healthy period in his life. A top notch show from an underrated period in the Dead's history. A great run of shows around this time.
Loved everything about it! Was crazy cool to see everything up close on the drums section. Box of rain opening the second set was more than I could ask for! We had to ask the theater to turn off the music but it’s all good. People are dancing in the aisles and clapping after every song, it was awesome!
Would have been nice if the sound was on half way through Hell In A Bucket in North Brunswick, NJ.
Need to advertise more on a local scale.
First time at a "meet up". It was fun and great to see the audience singing, some dancing and clapping at the end of each tune. Would def go again.
Great show. I miss Jerry and the original Dead...
Great show and great film. Was at this concert and actually saw my friend in crowd next to stage. God bless the Grateful Dead, and happy birthday Jerry!
Great show. Wonderful watching Jerry in such a great mood. And Brent, man that guy worked the keyboards for all they were worth.
A tremendous show. Jerry was so into it...smiling...rockin'...interacting with all the band members. Haunting Standing on the Moon! Wonderful rendition of Knockin' On Heaven's Door!
Saw this at Regal Brandywine Town Center, on the outskirts of Wilmington DE. Sound was Great throughout (even if I couldn't feel the Phil bombs or The Beam)! We could have used an actual intermission (old bladders throughout), but no complaints, otherwise. I have this show on DVD, but you can't beat a large screen and great sound.
great to see that show my wife and i where at that show with my three year old son at that time long live the dead
Regal Poulsbo; Turn it up!! you play movies louder than the music last night! Other than that it was great to relive the summer tour of '89.
Wasn't quite like being there, but it satisfied my GD fix. the 3 hours just flew by. at the end i still wanted more
Any chance to see Jerry smiling and playing his heart out is fun. I’ve seen most of the previous meet ups and this wasn’t my favorite (sound problem during warm up and at beginning of the concert). Plus it just wasn’t loud enough. Same period Alpine show, from a few years ago, was much better. But Jerry close ups and the second set jams were devine.
While it was great to see Jerry smiling and having a great time on stage, I was hoping for a much earlier concert, As soon as I saw the opening numbers with Bob Weir I became disappointed. Wished I could have seen more Jerry
meh. great let it grow, but i don't agree that jerry was his best or this show was the best when jerry's really jazzed, he breaks out the hummer strum (ask a girl if you don't know what that is). didn't see any of that. and i just never fell for brent. sorry. i like the old way of filming where you can actually see them play - not like the filmer has ADD. anyway, i've seen earlier gd nites films and they were more rockin'. better luck next year i guess...
Best way to celebrate Jerry’s birthday every year!!!!
The Grateful Dead Meet-Up has been the kind of blessing that Jerry surely would have anointed. Spending a hot day in a cool theater, watching crisp video and stirring audio of the Grateful Dead, is an awesome way to be a “headlight on a Northbound train.”
Nicely remastered 1989 concert at RFK stadium.
Brought back such wonderful feelings and memories of a younger time
One of the best shows I've every seen. Talk about a Scarlet Fire followed by and Estimated Standing on the Moon. And that Blow Away! Miss you too, Brent.
It was great seeing Jerry and Brent feeding off each other. Brent blew me away on the first set.
Loved seeing the guys give it their all on a really hot night.
I never got to experience Jerry Live but this was Wonderful!
Was great to see a show that I was lucky enough to attend in person. Awesome to see Jerry, Brent, and the rest. It was also great to see Phil sing Box of Rain!
It was great seeing how much Jerry and Brent loved each other and loved playing together...such a fun night!
Brent Was Blowin It Away!! Interplay with Jerry was special
All we needed was a sun baking us and a few 'twirlers' and it would be perfect.
Really great show! Glad I found out about it and so happy I was able to go.
Felt like I was at a Dead stadium show in 89. Went to DC but this Philly show is amazing, especially Blow Away and Scarlet>Fire.
Loved the film and the presentation in my theater. It is really a cinema verite look, with about 6 cameras capturing the band playing some of their best songs at the heyday of their late 1980's resurgence.
The Goddamn Grateful Dead 💀 ❤️
What a great night out! Great show choice and great company. My only complaint is that action movies are turned up louder than this was. Still great though!
Nice! Up close and personal look at the band.
Great show I've heard many times. Was cool to see it.
My son's girlfriend liked the first act, and I liked the second act. Filming was great, and music was as always.
Brent & Jerry at their finest!!!!! A must see. Blow away blew me away!!!!
Great sound. Great seeing them again
Great view of an epic show! Perfect way to celebrate Jerri’s birthday and his talent!! Amazing musicians, beautiful ballads 🎶
Those were the days...
Sound was terrible in Victor NY. It is a concert movie, you need both channels to make that work.
This was my first GD concert. #newtotheparty
The boys at the top of their game in their stadium. Brent era.
Amazing show! Jerry sounded great & looked happy.
Never saw them perform before. It was great.
