"Are you kind?"
We're holding our third annual Summer of Love party in July in Hawkhurst in Kent, UK, with a great line-up. As well as the fantastic GD cover band Deadicace, we've got a few special people as it's the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, including Barry "the Fish" Melton" of Country Joe and the Fish, and Robin Williamson of the Incredible String Band (both of whom played at the original Woodstock). And we've got a Santana cover band to.
Check out the details on our Summer of Love party website (www.solparty.org.uk). And you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's the best Deadhead party this side of the Atlantic (and maybe even both sides).
Yeah, I'm sure if there were any promoter types around who could find out exactly how the band would settle regarding revenue for doing, say eleven, shows on a European tour. Then it's just a matter of booking the right venues in the time they can tour. Obviously a lot of Americans would come over. I'd expect a decent interest here from Europeans also. It would definitely be financially viable. Who can find out what the bands requirements would be? Surely they'd be up for the tour of a lifetime, especially as there's the chance these days to hit up Eastern Europe. I'd certainly suggest Prague, Budapest, Gdansk and Tallinn as well as the obvious Western European spots. J
"Are you kind?"
thanking you muchly, Richard...
would be great if a bit of grass roots organising could influence the Dead coming here, but think you're right on the miracle front...
wish you that miracle Todd
Just the thought of those locations! what a hoot to see the Dead in some of the greatest cities in Europe. I can just picture it: headed off for a week's holiday in Barcelona - my wife's favourite european city.. like, ever.. ok, that and Geneva.. and i quite like Prague, and Amersterdam for that matter, but i digress... How cool would it be to take a great holiday, in a great city and see the the Dead play??!!
I think someone in the Dead promotional/booking department needs to remind them that there's a whole world out there and they could have a great time playing a more "intimate" gig in some really great cities!
as with everyone.. living in hope...
A Euro tour would be most cool.
I agree with Bob, no way they would do 11 shows in the UK. but, an 11 show Euro tour...
(licking my lips)
London, Wembley, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Frankfort, Hamburg, Paris, Barcelona, Rome, Prague....
at this stage in their lives, i think it is a matter of "where do we want to go and play" type of thinking for the band.
I think the only rumours of a Europe tour I've heard recently, were the ones I started a few years back.
those are the venues where they HAVE played.
I'll go see if it's acting weird, but I don't think in this case the past is a predictor of the future. Dang.
maybe this is just some form of tally which suggests the number of venues that are possible for the dead to play - but i do sincerely doubt that there are only 9 venues in the UK where they could play (and one is not even the NEC).
It would be great if they did play here.. last time i saw them was Chicago 92 or 93... of course that was pre-Jerry demise... wierdly enough, i just stumbled across a copy of High Times that i bought which featured Jerry following the news... oh the memories...
