This is installment 3 of 5...
Not sure yet how many DVDs this will be, probably 3 or 4. Had to fit Halloween on considering we're coming up on the 35th anniversary of that show...
"when life looks like easy street, there is danger at your door"
just got an email from usps, pre sale tickets on their way and should be here by end of this week, beginning of next. Yahoo, you know it's gonna get stranger....it always feels better with tickets in your hand than out in cyberspace.
Got 2 tix for the Auditorium March 3...
I'm damn near on the ceiling (gallery) but IN THE HOUSE!!!
have 2 extras send contact info if interested
Got a last minute ticket 12/12 at Asbury Park. Stood right in front of the soundboard guy, who stripped off his shirt and was dancing his butt off during the second set.
My first band I truly loved were the Allmans. Duane was IT for me. When he died, I could never imagine the band ever sounding the same. Then, 1989 comes along and Warren joins the band. The band experienced a rebirth, with many times finding myself closing my eyes and swearing I was back at the Fillmore East back in the day.
To those on archive.org and here who are ripping JK, it makes no sense to me. To quote- "ya ain't gonna learn what you don't want to know". I say be very thankful there is the core of Bobby and Phil with the help of Jeff and John playing these wonderful songs. They have aged as well as the wines from Sonoma and Napa. I'm not alone is saying the vibe is back.
To continue in regard to John, who says OCD is a bad thing? Turn off the hate and listen! For example, just take a listen to the way they are doing Viola Lee Blues - it has the feel and exact vibe of the original band. Loved hearing Brown Eyed Women, Greatest Story Ever Told, Wharf Rat, and on and on. No other incarnation- The Dead, Ratdog or PLF has it as close to the original as this band.
I am pumped up to know I am going to see them again on 2/27 in AC, NJ. If you have a chance, seeing is truly believing.
be there or be square, 'cause all yo friends will be there...makin' hay while the sun shines...and your mother sez don't foget to cool down and put on your shoes before you go back out into the cold, you crazy hippies! Best wishes for good traveling weather, and much love from the Golden Gate to all you hardy folk ( you know who you are). Peace and remember in time after midnight love is all you need.
Wow, I can't believe the set list from NYE. National Guard guy here near the end of my second tour in Iraq. I missed all the Dead shows in 2004 (First tour in Iraq). Caught the East Coast opener last year in Greensboro, then off to Iraq again. Well, I bought two tickets for Deleware. Atlantic City was sold out. Got my first grandchild on the way due sometime between March 4 and 11, but I had to get to at least one show. Looking for some older heads to hang out with in Deleware. I plan to be bringing my 16 year old daughter who I'm trying to convert from Emo to real music. Feel free to post me a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. By the way, thanks to the guy I met last year in Greensboro if you're out there. You were wearing an Obama shirt and the pizza topping was great.
Thank you ALL!
See ya 2/17, bring boots.
oh please play arizona, oh please!
I have 2 tickets for Miami on 2/5 - I paid $95 for the pair and I'll sell the pair for $80. Gotta tell you though - it's Super Bowl weekend. We decided to do the Orlando show instead. Email me at email@example.com if interested - I can do Paypal if you want to pay that way.

Re: A Phil & Friends show w/Bob attached at the hip? That comment was uncalled for, but all have the right to their opinion. I feel this is a blend of all the members, new and old, pitching in equally with Phil & Bob having rights to the arrangements and vocals. Comment about the drummers was totally apt though -- hard to fill those shoes.
These shows were a little off compared to the Fox shows and and large chunks of Asbury, Hammerstein and, of course, Wallingford. But, then again, they were always a bit off for most of the New Years shows back in the day.
Lucky ducks, thems that got tickets for the Mill Valley shows. Kudos to the boys for putting in the effort before this tour! We all are so very grateful (well, most of us anyway) to still be able to hear this music played live w/some of the original krew adding a twist of something new.
