Florida shows

It doesn't look like there are many recent posts in here but if anyone gets this, i've only lived in FL a couple of years and seen RatDog twice since being here. Do they come down to FL each year and more specifically the Tampa/St Pete area.

oregon shows

there was a `10:30 curfew in Jacksonville and I knew that with Jackie G. opening that there was no way they'd play 2 sets but they came on and played a couple hours straight both nights and I was quite satisfied.

It all rolls into one

According to

RatDog.org, the Oregon shows were supposed to be 2 sets? Was there a curfew issue or something? It looks like they had no intention of playing 2 sets to me??

Welcome To Oregon Bob Weir & Ratdog !

Have a great tour! Hey can I leave my dog on one of your air-conditioned tour buses during the Jacksonville show? She just turned 16 and has been going to shows since she was one. Oh well, I'm hoping that by 8:30 or 9 it will be cool enough to leave her in the car. Should be much cooler in Eugene. We won't leave the coast till late afternoon and will drive back some of the way after the show, then back home, work for an hour and drive 4 hours to Eugene. I must be crazy, but I love good music!

I agree rosa!

My wife and I are already making some plans. I'm feeling really good about it. Especially since at the end of the Rothbury show Phil says ... something along the line of ... "They hope to be back there next year and they hope everyone comes back to see them" besides it'll be perfect for a 45 year anniversary!!

3 more weeks before RatDog hits my neck of the woods!! Can't wait!!

Speculation . . .

I'm really optimistic about the Dead doing a Spring 2010 tour. I think this fall is unlikely. But I'm certainly hoping Ratdog adds some shows in my neck of the woods this fall. That would hold me over nicely!

I'm not even going to speculate on that one. I don't have any inside knowledge, and I've certainly guessed wrong a zillion times over the years. I entirely agree with your viewpoint however!

Mayre, what's your feeling?

What's your feeling? How long will The Dead play?

It would be tragic for them to leave e stage anytime soon. Garcia said they'd play until, "they came and took us away". I want to bring my children 9 and 6 currently, some day.

What's your feel?

I'll cry if I can't bring them some day.

Roger
