Remembering how few people attended the show as the Idaho state fair and baseball/horse races were also occurring the same night as I recall. I recall hearing "Throwing Stones" for the first time ever... Korean Airliner 007 had just been shot down a week earlier, very strange eerie feeling in the BSU Pavilion and the silence during/after the song as people were still in a state of shock and disbelief and wondering why and how this had happened and if this was a sign of future things to come? The 2nd set with, Help on the way-Slipknot-Franklins Tower – Eyes of the World… are forever etched into my brain and still haunt me with pleasant memories of friends and days long past… where does the time go? I still remember after the lights came up after the encore and my friend/ boss Jim H. - Log Home Builder extraordinaire and a very talented guitar player himself and I marveled at all of the electronics neatly arrayed on stage and guessed the value at approx. a half million dollars… A very enjoyable show and Idaho deadheads did not need to travel out of state too see their favorite band. Nothing like pizza with friends up on Vista, after a dead show before the hour trip home to Treasure Valley…
