I too saw the band in Newcastle, Alexandra Palace, Rainbow and Wembley. All were wonderful shows (esp Newcastle -my home town) BUT what about next year's 50th celebrations? Now that Phil is coming surely he'll be able to persuade some/all of the surviving members to visit Europe next year. let's start a petition!
Want to affirm this, details desired!
Seriously you jest! I'd love to hear all the detail you'd provide - especially about the Wembley(s)!
Sometimes it was so frustrating feeling hidden away in England and having to wait for a Euro Tour to get to see The Dead. So I only got to see them the grand total of 3 times. Bickershaw Festival in Manchester way, Alexander Palace and Wembley in London. Don't know just how much detail is wanted here but all I can say is that at each concert something very special or very odd kind of happened. Sure our states of mind had something to do with it but it was beyond that for sure. Wherever that band seemed to go a certain majik surrounded the area. Such cool memories of times never to be forgotten.
See you there folks! Wave a flag so I can come and say hi!
Greetings from Poland and see you in London at the Phil Lesh concerts :-)
the html was missing a character or something, and chaos ensued. But it's all good now!

p.s.s. I stand corrected, it looks like the thread went dizzy after deadegad's post!
p.s.s.s (etc.) 10 lashes with a wet noodle. It was late, yeah, that's it...It was late!

I don't think you blew it up posting html. I post html all the time.
