Blimpsters at this show heard new songs like Freewill and The Spirit of Radio for the first time live in Portland. The band also previewed Limelight and Tom Sawyer a whole 4 months before the release of Moving Pictures. Nerdgasm!
Blimpsters heard great new songs live on that historic evening like You’ll Accomp’ny Me and Her Strut along with already classics like Turn the Page and Hollywood Nights! This was Bob's third trip to Maine.
It's very cool that Portland Deadheads got to hear a new song called Touch of Grey almost 5 years before it was recorded. It was how they started the second set that night and you can listen to it here.
AC/DC was touring in support of their (kinda sorta) greatest hits album, Who Made Who which was also the soundtrack to Stephen King’s Maximum Overdrive. Wonder if Maine’s King of Horror was in the audience that night? We 'bout 'magine.
