Video: The Grateful Dead – “Eyes of the World”


June 17, 1991, Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey:

Opening the show with “Eyes of the World,” one of my favorites, this video was apparently transferred from a VHS as you can see at the beginning, and has good quality video and audio for a transfer.  It starts in with a cool zoom in through the crowd, already dancing, and has a lot of good closeups of all the band members.  Looks to have been done professionally.  Total Time: 14:48.

Don’t forget, you can stream the entire show’s audio at Archive.org:

  1. Certainly one of the better moments from 1991. I was down on the floor, Mail Order was extra kind to me for this night. Giants Stadium ain’t the best place to see a show but hey, it was Summer Tour at my “home” venue so I enjoyed bein’ there! I really dug the somewhat odd setlist occurences and this was one of those. Like so many, as they tuned up I stood there wondering what the opening song would be… and then I was just floored when it was Eyes. Anyone who knew Dead shows and “normal” setlist was just as stoked as I was. Now this wasn’t a return of St. Stephen or a Ripple encore but it was soooo nice! At that moment in time life did not get any better!!! Eyes to open a show!??!??! Go check yer Deadbase, son, and see how many times that’s happened! (I think this was the first (and only) since ’73 if I recall correctly.) Awesome!!!

    Well, due to good old dial up internet I’m not gonna watch the video but I’m lookin’ forward just a little more to dloading this show and giving it a listen.
