Life Motto for Deadheads everywhere

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely, in an attractive and well preserved body, but RATHER to skid in sideways, CHOCOLATE in one hand, a MARTINI in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOOHOO, WHAT A RIDE!!!

Got my 5/5 ticket friday. I was so excited when I opened it, didnt think that I'd ever get to see the dead. I dont think that Im gonna be able to make it for the 5/4 show though. I didnt jump on the bus until after the 04 tour so Im very grateful for this tour. Cant wait to see all of you guys there!

Peace and Love,
Trevor

We'll Be Dancin' In Chicago !!

I am only able to hit two shows this tour. I grew up in Chicago, so my choice was an easy one. I have not been to Chicago in about 5 years, and can not wait to be there! I will be staying at the hotel right across the street from the Allstate (the name escapes me at the moment), and will be attending the shows with my best friend who still lives there. Talk about a family reunion!!

I have received my 5/5 tickets, but still waiting for my 5/4. Has anyone received their Monday tickets yet?

5/4 & 5/5 shows in Chicago

Being a Chicago area Deadhead, I hope to be able to answer some of your questions. First of all: Shakedown. The last time I saw a shakedown at Rosemont was March 16th & 17th in '94. Wow- What a party! that old Holiday Inn is now a Raddison, but still has the same bar in it, but rooms are way pricey now. All the hotels you guys are referencing adjacent to Allstate Arena will be full of heads. Just get to Manheim and Touhy, and you'll stumble upon all you need for 2 days. You'll find a party- or the party will find you, and then you'll find the floor of somebody's room. So don't sweat it. Just show up: you remember how our community is, right? It'll be my 40th birthday on May 4th, so be to stop by the white bus with IL plates: BUS 1970 for some laughs, grilled cheese, and fatty micro-brews.

Peace,

Salmon Will

Pre-Show Activities?

Does anyone have any plans in the works for the days prior to the shows? I'm in S Elgin and I have some friends traveling here that weekend, We'd like to meet up with some fellow 'heads if there's any pre-partying going on!
