I'm a little puzzled about these Chicago shows. I've been following the Dead and going to shows since the 70s. I rarely wasn't able to find SOME reasonable way to get into a show, but like many, I mail-ordered and lost in Chicago. So what are the options now? Get scalped and pay $1200+ per show to get in ...or... hope for a miracle? This doesn't seem like the way the Dead would want to wrap things up, having so many loyal followers getting shut out.
I know they're getting old and don't blame them if they wish or need to retire. It's just that we went from a fairly accessible and great-to-hear Further band to this very LAST CHANCE series of three Dead shows that sold-out in a heart beat. I can deal with missing them in Chicago if Further will be touring again. If not, then paying over a grand to get into to at least one of the Chicago shows is probably worth it.
These ARE the last shows, right? No more Further even? How about Rat Dog? Did I read that Phil said he's done performing or touring after Chicago?
Was shut out on both mail order and online. Looking for two tickets for the 3rd or 4th for the 50th and/or two for Dear Jerry. Willing to pay the standard fees above face value.
Scalpers are such a drag. I refuse to pay them any money. Just called a CL guy who has 9 lawn tickets for Dear Jerry and wants $150ea. Question, how is it that he has 9 tickets when you can only buy 4. And he said "Oh, I think I only have 9 left". How many did he start out with? I had five computers loged in on ticketfly and my little guys only walked half the way before they sold out.
Hate to miss either of these events. Hopefully there are still some Kind people out there. Back in the day I always sold my extras at face value. I even gave a ticket away in the parking lot at Buckeye Lake, either 93' or 94. Mircles do happen everyday! Needing one now.
Peace, Enlightenment and Scouting
I haven't been able to see The Dead since 1986 and my husband has never been to a concert, let alone the whole Dead experience. We'd prefer handicapped seating (I have multiple sclerosis) but can do regular seating. We'd prefer Sunday but will do whatever we need to do in order to go on any day. Can't afford to pay much over face value, which seems to be the obstacle we're unable to overcome.
Can't believe that the scalpers even bought out all the handicapped tickets in a matter of minutes.
Shut out on pre-sales and today for tickets. Looking for that miracle of any 2 tixs for Dear Jerry. Will pay cost plus all fees.
Does anyone have two lawn seats they are willing to sell me? I tried and I tried but no luck today. Last time I saw the boys was May 27 - 28, 1995, Sam Boyd Silvewr Bowl in Las Vegas.
Miracles do happen!
Cash for 4th or 5th
Can supply transportation to & from airport
Pretty please with sugar on top
Still looking, I will pay up to 2 times face, can supply motel room, transportation from anywhere near Virginia, ride from airport whatever it takes. I will feed you too if it will help, just can't miss this one after 37 years on the bus.
Looking to trade a great seat with a perfect view on Friday July 3rd for the same or similar seats for Sunday July 5......
Thanks, My friend. I wish you luck as well.
Like others, seeking one last miracle. Face value is a miracle for this one.
If someone gets a line, or a method to reasonably priced tickets, PM me. Have friends going to Chicago who got MOs and would love to join them. Haven't seen them in many moons.
