These guys really put some good music out, check out there Web Page. Every Thursday for Like 20 years! They have some fun parties too...also Dark Star Orcistra...Their always crowded with kind people! Music Never Dies when theres a good story teller!
if for some reason you decided to jump off the bus fine that is your life to live...... i don't think anybody has the right to judge someone for staying on...if someone gets off, it leaves a seat for some one to get on.
let your life proceede by its own design
Dude, your rite about the experience bit.... Towards the end there, i'd say Jerry was kinda out of it from the china-way. and yes, I think the spirit was alot more alive on the further tour in 98 then in 94 at buckeye lake i caught in Ohio. As for tickets, don't sweat it anybody, you'll get em in the parking lot!
GET IN THE GROOVE AND LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL<
WE GONNA STAY HERE TILL WE SOOTH OUR SOUL
IF IT TAKES ALL NIGHT LONG!!!!!!!!!
Whewww! Why all the fuss about tix? Perception and reality can be QUITE different. I agree with Phatmoye, there will be plenty of tix available at every venue, especially if you have the patience to wait until the last minute at the most "sold-out" venues. Really, it's gonna be Ok. Really it will, I promise!
if your trip is over, get off the bus. I'm staying on.
question is, do the Dead / Ratdog / Phil & Friends provide an "authentic" experience for you? I gotta say, I have had more positive Grateful experiences at some recent Dead / Ratdog / Phil shows than what i saw from '92-'95. Let's be honest, Jerry was asleep at the wheel for the last three or four years, and the vibe was lacking. Still, were those shows authentic Grateful Dead experiences? yes.
Was the Terrapin Station reunion at Alpine Valley a few years ago authentic? yes. Was it superior to the last few shows i saw with Jerry? yes.
Weir wrote tons of the Dead's material, but folks accuse him of nostalgia-mongering with Ratdog. Well, remember the Dead themselves have been accused of being out of step and out of touch since the end of the sixties.
Jerry Garcia was a member of this thing called Grateful Dead. so am I. so are you, if you want to be. if you don't, just pass it on
Yea, ur over the hill ,or n a boat with-out a paddle, sounds like someone missed the Bus alrite

You really can not put a price on a dead show!!! If you can't get tickets for the show thats coming near you, just go anyway!! Chances are you'll find 1 in the lot. Probably face value or around the same price. We got to remember man, theres gonna be alot of people touring on this tour, so i'm sure that they'll be needin money for travel expenses and probably would'nt mind missin a show or two for gas,cig., etc...
Is'nt there a song saying "The Music never stop"?
Keep the faith and let every body stand up sit down and shake bones! The Grateful are HERE!
Last week it was an asshole selling his ShoreLine tickets for $1,000.00 on EBAY. And now this is even worse...

Can you believe this bullshit? 25K for general admission floor seats.
No Brent and
No Vince either.
It's time to cancel this rip-off tour instead of being dragged into this filthy ticket scalping racket. You can't sell yours at face value in the parking lot; but these corporate bastards can rob us blind. There is no difference between EBAY, StubHub and any other 3rd party who jacks up ticket prices and give none of his windfall profits to the artists. Wanna bet these assholes aren't gonna report this income on their tax returns by April 15th either?
It's time for these stupid politicians and the IRS to wake up. Ban all of these ticket scalpers...
