The band says Happy New Year with an announcement of almost twenty shows in April and May. More details to come!

proven wrong yet again...
Furthur at Bill Graham CC 12/30 and 31.
well well well, you can never tell.
right NOW, Jackie is scheduled and tix on sale for the GAMH, 12/30 and 12/31/09
same same last year, Jackie WAS slated for the GAMH around this time,
but once Weir and Lesh decided to play the civic center, Jackie cancelled the GAMH and joined in over there.
last year, it was, however, around this time that Jackie cancelled the GAMH... so if there is no word from Weir or Lesh in the next couple of weeks, I wouldN't expect any dead / Phriends / DOg shows.
the BIG factor this year, , Weir and Lesh are doing the Furthur thing on the east coast until 12/13... so who knows? maybe those boys will just want to take a well deserved rest... Weir got to rest up for the Jamaica thing, too.
personally, I think there will NOT be any DOG or Phriends shows, but they MAYBE will show up at the GAMH and jam with jackie. (they did that before some other show a while back...) rumours still flying around...
if there is any confirmation one way or the other, please let us know. likewise, I'll do the same.
as I recall from postings elsewhere, Jackie Greene is doing HIS NYE shows at the GAMH those nights.
Is there any action towards a 45th Anniversary in San Francisco? I am a Deadhead
for 40 years. San Francisco girl (using the word "girl") liberally.
Please help by e mailing me at The Dead site with info. Please bring some Sunshine
into my life.
I am working on research for a film about DIY music venues, and in the process have stumbled across accounts of the Dead's 1967 "Great Northern Tour." I have read that this was one of the first instances of a major band financing an entire tour themselves. I do not know much more than this, or am I very knowledgeable about the Dead but I thought someone here might be able to answer some questions and shed some light on the history. Is there a board member I should talk to in particular? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Direct message me with any and all insights.

Where do I go to just shoot the breeze back and forth w/other Deadhead hippy freaks?
please keep in mind The Dead or the Dog or Phriends or Further for NYE is a rumour.
IF, Lesh or Weir do not schedule their own shows, they MAYBE might, MAYBE show up at the Music Hall and jam with Jackie...
well, well, well, you can never tell...
Thanks for the info
