Grateful Dead Rock Rotterdam May 11, 1972


Hey I just discovered this cover of a Netherlands music paper today!


For an excellent review of this or any Europe '72 show go to http://bozosandbolos.blogspot.com/2012/05/51172-rotterdam-morning-dew-baseball.html

May 10 in Amsterdam was the Dead's first ever show in the Netherlands, but the next night in Rotterdam blow that one away.  Starting the first set with Playin'in the Band and the second with Morning Dew set the tone for a beautiful night that ended with a nearly 45 minute Dark Star>Sugar Mag>Caution>Who Do You Love>Truckin, a very rare sequence before finishing with Uncle John's Band and One More Saturday Night. But this one if you can but the SBD here is still rocking as well.

Blair Jackson's review is also quite awesome.

does anyone have an idea of what time the show on 5/11/72 started? I was born that day and if it was a day show (unlikely) it possible that they were playing the moment I took my first breath.
