F#%$ 'em if they can't take a joke.

It seems that the MTV Video Music Awards were held that day: 9/13/85 at Radio City Music Hall. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1985_MTV_Video_Music_Awards,
Fascinating. My puzzlement has to do with never having heard of this particular gig. I assume this ticket is a forgery, but who knows?
if I am reading the ticket correctly, it suggests that Jerry and Dave will "Celebrate the 4 Seasons," so that means "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," 'Walk Like A Man" and many more. Oh, what a night...
To be so humorous around it implies to me that you understand what it is. What is it? What I mean to say is, how did this image come to be? Of what is it an instance?
The thing that strikes me is the price: $38.50 in 1985 was pretty much outrageous for a concert. Most Dead tickets that I've seen from 1985 have a top price of $15.00. If this is a forgery, then they forgot to take inflation into account. If it's real, then it must have been something incredibly special (a benefit?).

Thanks, Steve and Croz. Solves the question of what this image is, but not why it is!
