The band says Happy New Year with an announcement of almost twenty shows in April and May. More details to come!
Well, found myself tismorning listening to the last show on this tour.(sigh) The boys have definately outdone theirselves on this tour. I hate to see it come to an end. Im keeping my fingers crossed for a fall tour. Listening to the last show, I found some tears running down my face. (tears of joy) I just want to say thank you Mickey, Bill, Bobby, Phil, Warren, and Jeff for all the joy and happyness you guys gave us on this tour. Made alot of new friends here on dead.net and in the Philly lot. Thank you Dead.net and thank you Marye for your knowledge and trouble shooting on this site. I hope to see all of you on a fall tour:) God Bless you all and God Bless The Grateful Dead!!!!
Well said, I agree that they really started tapping into that old exploritory spirit. (Letter I sent to Bobby)Dear Mr.Weir,It would be foolish to stop now..We're not done discovering...the mission is not yet complete!!! see ya in the fall!!!! "all FALL down tour 09" Thank-you for Many smiles for many years....Many more to come,peace-George
Great tour! I haven't heard much from the boys since Jerry passed that made me want to hit the road but this tour made me want to get back truckin' on!
Warren really found a great balance of playing in his own style and adding a bit more Jerry and Dead style to his chops. I think he really 'got it' this time and grew into it more than in the past.
He really found his singing voice too. I think their vocal stylings are the best they have been since Brent died.
The way they played some of their vintage stuff was great as well....love Born Cross Eyed etc-that was terrific!!
The 'core four' as Chimenti calls them (he played great keys of course as well as adding some vocal harmonies) are definitely one of a kind (or is that four?).....I never get tired of hearing their unique and powerful, transcendent interplay.
Some people can't get past the chaos that sometimes ensues from their unconventional approach but I have loved it and found it incomparable since I fell into it back in the early eighties.
How unique and enjoyable.
I wonder if they will write some new stuff..??? That would be cool.....maybe if they wrote some new stuff exploring the weird stylings of the sixties in the vein of Born Cross Eyed etc as it seems they really found a way to bring back those vintage sounds that are at once new and old...?...
The Dead shall rise again....Im sure of it..."Everybodys dancin in a ring around the sun...Nobodys finished,We aint even begun!" =-)
for a real good time...i just want to thank the boys for all the fun that was had on this tour....i hope this will not be the last tour...dancing in the hallway with my sonwas the greates high i ever had at any show....i can't make rothbury so i wish all who go have the best time ever.......THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!
