need a miracle after a death in the family

My husband, known to many as Schnieders, passed away 3/16/15 at 1:30am after a long stay in the hospital sick. It was our dream to be at this show together and now I just want to be there with him in spirit. Our family has already provided airfare and hotel for the event, and with the way that the ticket situation is, I would be honored to even get in for one night out of three, any of them, if that's all I can do. I will be in Chicago all weekend even if I can't get in. Please let me know if you have a ticket for any of the three nights, if you have two tickets together I would bring my dad to the show with me who introduced me to the Grateful Dead, and will be in Chicago with me, and spent many hours jamming with my husband to the music of the Dead, if you only have one ticket, that is okay too. Please email if you can assist in any way and let me know what you need for the tickets, as I cannot afford the insanity on stubhub.

Thank you for all your love over the years and the best family we have known.

I have a dream...

Bonjour à tous! I was there on time, although there's more than an ocean between us, but like so many could'nt get any. But never mind, we're coming! Who knows: maybe I could win some kind of magic pass just because I come from France, just because I've been crying for 20 years, keeping Jerry alive every first week-end of august with some friends (so many nightfall of diamonds), just because there's so much I'd love to share with you guys, me a sixty old frenchie... but cosmic CHARLIE too!

Still looking to trade Burning Man for GD50

Burning Man is sold out. The Grateful Dead is sold out. Screw the scalpers! I have an extra Burning Man ticket. Do you have extra Grateful Dead tickets? I’m thinking a straight up trade. One $380 Burning Man ticket (good for all 7 days of the festival) for one each of the three Grateful Dead shows, July 3, 4 & 5 (of any level - $59 and up, just get me in the door for each of the shows). And depending on your tickets, I may even be able to throw in a Burning Man parking pass (worth its weight in gold this year). So, if you have the extra Grateful Dead tickets and you really want to go to Burning Man, I have an extra Burning Man ticket and I really want to go to all 3 of the Grateful Dead’s final shows…let’s talk.

I know that at this point, neither of us will actually have tickets in hand, but I have purchased my tickets through Ticketfly, I have the confirmation numbers and I will receive tickets in June. Assuming you do as well, we can agree to the trade and then when we actually get the tickets, we can discuss the logistics of the trade. There are many, many burners who can and will vouch for me. I make this offer out of a genuine love for both Burning Man and The Grateful Dead and an overwhelming desire to avoid scalpers and profiteers.

Love & Respect,

Hotel Room(s) Trade For (2) 3-Days to Soldier Hyatt Or Hard Rock

Hello there. So excited about these shows but unfortunately I didn't have any luck with TOO or Ticketbastard like so many others. I do have some extras hotel rooms to trade so figured I'd at least post up and see.... So basically I'm Looking to trade either two rooms at Chicago Hyatt Regency ($1750 min trade value) or one room at The Chicago Hard Rock Hotel($1400 min trade value) for 2 3 day passes to the Soldier Field shows no "No view" tickets please. Check in is July 3rd 3:00 pm and checkout is on the July 6th by noon.The rooms are standard 400sq.ft King bed rooms with great views. The Rooms will be paid for however you will have to put your own credit card down for incidentals once you check in as I will not be responsible for what you do in or to your room during your stay. I sincerely hope that all you true lovers of the Grateful Dead get in some way some how. Cause remember ...Nothing Lasts!

Hoping for some kind tickets

Hey now, I was a late comer to the bus, didn't get on until 1980 and saw my first show in '81. Racked up lots and lots of shows and friends in the meantime. Didn't make the grade though for Mail Order or TM. Really don't want to feed the beast that is the secondary ticket market, so I am hoping that a kind soul that has extra tickets will shine on me. I am looking for as little as one ticket for one show anywhere in the venue, to as many as two 3 day passes. My wife & I would love to be at all 3, but I will be entirely grateful for a single night of dancing in the seats. If you have something available, please pm me or email to I will pay, and wish I had something to trade, but am open to what you need to let your extras go. If you are in need of lodging, I have room in my home. Dance on kind friends,

so depressed I started to listen to Phish

But realized we are all much better off with the collective dead spirit and listened to Boston 77. I was destined to be a dead head. Help me complete the journey with a ticket for my wife and myself
We all need something built to last

Quantum Syncronicity Experiment

Well here goes: one thing I've learned from the GD universe is that synchronization happens within it! Under the influence of time bending supports or not. So....I will put out possibly the impossible improbilbity and see what the GD universe zaps back...
Kind compassionate being whom works for those in suffering, hopes that an auspicious event may occur where another kind compassionate being will donate their tickets or ticket to this humble writer to be able to have one last chance to enjoy the community and band that started it all for become a kind compassionate being whom works for the benefit of others!
It would be so greatly appreciated to be able to experience the love, community, and music one last time! It's just me, myself and I. So, if someone can't go-let me know! Def will reimburse or except a good old miracle!
