Grateful Dead Shirt : Vintage Original (Genuine / Authentic) : 1993 : Chinese New Year'93! - Year Of The Rooster!!! : Oakland Coliseum - January 24, 25 & 26, 1993 - 1/24, 25 & 26/1993 (1/24/1993 - 1/25/1993 - 1/26/1993) - Oakland, California (CA) : The Classic! Shirt - made for the' Traditional' G. Chinese New Year run of Shows at the Oakland Coliseum!!!
- as I sure bet that This! Chinese New Year Shirt brings back the Memories! -- just like a Train... As speaking for myself, there was just nothing!
Like Grateful Dead Chinese New Year & Mardi Gras Shows!! As these were always a little more low-key, versus high-profile Shows... At least to the' Civilians' - versus the Die-Hard Deadhead! And too, on the West Coast - especially Bay Area wise, and north there of - these were often the more-so' dreary' weather times outside...So, there was just Nothing! Quite as inviting as walking into the Good Ol' Oakland Coliseum!!! Truly the Band's " Home Court " for all of the 1990's! It & Shoreline too - naturally. But, the really nice part of these runs were that the Band would seem to really take it upon themselves to " build-up " to the Final Night's Magic! As after all, how can a killer Parade! Go down on the inside of the Arena - if the Grateful Dead isn't on Fire! Well, they really always did a fine-job taking care of that.
And, for this'93 run - the Band was really in the early midst of a yet-again! Or, as some do like to say... Since'92 was marked with some strong Shows - and lots! Of them, it also ended up meaning that the Band decided to take some much-needed time off...
Deciding to take a little collective break, instead of going forth with the planned'92 Fall Tour. Just as one might expect - some time off was really helpful!And, the Grateful Dead were really back & bringing the Heat!! This January Chinese New Year run... And also at the Mardi Gras run in February - just around a month later!
To make matters even Cooler! Shirts for these two Show runs, that Fans have been Crazy! About - for over 30-Years now!!
The 1st Shirt, was this one here... The " Year Of The Rooster " Shirt! - Date & Venue-Specific for not only the 1/24,25,26/1993 Oakland run - but...
Also recognition-specific for the 1/26/1993 " Year Of The Rooster " Show! - where even Carlos Santana came out to play with the Band!!! And, the other one of these made - which, I'm hoping you are also familiar with? Was for the " Mardi Gras " run! And, these two almost look like a' Pair' - which, of course...And, if you are like me - and really dig your " Black " Rock & Roll style Concert Shirt... Then, you really cannot beat these!
And, to make matters even more cool here -- this one here is actually Still! Yes indeed - but, true fact it is!! So, if you caught this run, or have been trying to hunt down this way more than' elusive' G. Tee for years & years...
Well then, look no Further! - as this one is Brand Spankin' New!!! So, yeah - it's now pretty much Your! Job to acquire this one, and Proudly!
