Fans too -- The 1987 Year Of The Hare! Grateful Dead'87 Chinese New Year Tour Shirt!! This is the Vintage Original (Genuine / Authentic) Grateful Dead GDP, Inc.Celebrating the 1987 Chinese New Year Year Of The Hare! Hat's that Good Ol' saying after all... Like a Chinese New Year!! - with the Grateful Dead!!!
That's what I say... And that goes for Mardi Gras! From the Band & for the Fans - with the likes of Orchestras! - and of course too... And, as Chinese New Year Shows & Mardi Gras Shows were generally in Oakland - and, especially'after' this'87 run - this one was actually held in S.
As in 1987, the Band decided it would be a good idea to place this Festive Party - right inside The City! And, with there always being an appropriate' Theme' too - for the individual Chinese New Year Calendar' Year' - well, this'87 turn of the page in History! Just happened to be done by the Rabbit!! - or, as I should more properly say...
&' Quintessential' Grateful Dead Tour Shirt! And indeed one of the Best!And, this isn't just any Ol' Hare here - as this guy or gal here is actually " Magically " pulling out a Lightning Bolt! Straight-out of an upside down Top Hat! Just kind of like how Jerry Garcia! Out of a Top Hat - later on during this Fine! Dead-Year of'87 - with the J.
And at the Lunt Fontanne in New York City! As I'm sure you've seen That-One! Well, this was a 3-Show stand on 1/28/87, 1/29/87 & 1/30/87. With the' Actual' Chinese New Year night being on the 1/29/87. With the 1/28 Show indeed being the' Opener' of this run - which, may I add kicked-off with a Huge!
Of this entire'87 S. Run, and really too - one of the all-time'80's G. Well, at least definitely from an' Entertainment' standpoint! - delivered by you guessed it... And take off that High-School Sweater!!
To open Set II of the 1/29 Show! To' Close' the 1st Set! Stuff of'80's G. On this Red-Hot'87 S. I mean this was a sheer Classic!
- a little bit off & out of timing / tune, and yet still completely-drenched with'80's G. And too, I'd have to check & look into it to be certain... But, I'm pretty certain that this run was actually the Last & Final! Time that the Grateful Dead ever played the S.As, it was pretty much always East Bay - in Oakland! Style in the moving forward - which, is always way-cool too - for the super-Fun Chinese New Year & Mardi Gras run type stuff. Dead Fans out there Must! Have this one - and, especially if you were fortunate enough to catch this'87 S. Civic Chinese New Year run of Shows!! Quite-like a Chinese New Year G. And one year I was even Lucky! Enough to see one right-on my Birthday!! Wow, as I must say... Was something-else my fellow Dead Fans! - and Mardi Gras Shows! A little more low-key, always on the West Coast in the Grate! And there always seemed to be a little' Extra-Special' G.
Were indeed in the House! - as it was indeed Their Show! The Year Of The Hare!!! - and of course too, naturally... It was their Big Day!Well What's Up Doc?
