August 4, 1992 Saratoga Performing Arts Center – Saratoga Springs, NY

Show Notes

Not even the second song into the set, fans from the lawn rush the barrier and take over the amphitheater, likely due to the downpour that starts when PJ takes the stage. People are attempting to mudslide on the lawn (or wet grass). After ‘Even Flow,’ Ed says, “Fuck all those big cities.” He talks about wanting people to be safe: “Look out for your neighbor. You can have the responsibility.” Ed makes a reference that they didn’t get enough attention at home as kids and then they play ‘Black.’ Toward the end of the set, a tornado touches down a few miles away and all the stage lights go out, but the amps didn’t. Ed says, “There goes the lights … there goes the lights” and the band goes into an immediate extended jam. A snippet of ‘Sympathy For the Devil’ is played after ‘Deep.’ ‘Alive’ is awesome, with an extended ending with a cool “hey, hey” jam. After ‘Alive,’ Ed notes that “now you know what it’s like to live in Seattle … It’s an amazing day. It’s gonna take a lot out of you. Take the day off tomorrow. You need some sleep.”
Note: There is a tape circulating as this show but it is actually an FM broadcast of the 6/6/92 FM broadcast.
