No pinky, MO's not cashed, and no e-mail. I don't know how much more of this I can take. I think I have gained at least a thousand more grey hairs in my beard this past month. If I do make it to the show I will be the one that looks like Jerry! LOL.

This limbo situation is becoming very uncomfortable and honestly, for the first time I'm starting to worry retrieving the money order funds back. Sending positive vibes out the the universe today for any news. It looks like alot of you heads are still in the same boat. Good luck to you this week, fellow limbo riders and congrats to you lucky ducks who received the confirmation!!

Man, this is really bringing me down (more so than the negative comments here). Trying to stay positive throughout this whole thing, but it just got much harder. Not in limbo but OMG all these previously released tickets and all these presales doesn't give us "little people" much of a chance to get tickets. With the VIP sales, soldier field season ticket holders (who will scalp instead of going), and now even Bear Club members get an internet presale?! WTF??!! This is killing our chances to get tix on Sat. "There will be no internet presale" said dead50.net. Well, that was a lie. Feeling not so special about this venue or process now. Really want to go, but not paying scalpers for $1500 and up for a single ticket or paying very high VIP ticket package prices either. Really gonna need some major luck to score Saturday morning. :-(

This one is killing me (from the dead50.net website): "Will 3 day passes be available? Yes. 3 day packages are being offered via Dead fan club pre sale, and public on sale." Hello? Dead50.net, you need to fix this statement! There is no DEAD FAN CLUB or fan club presale!!!!!

My friend got one in Chicago yesterday. With 25% of envelopes not processed as of this past Monday, lots of Pinkys are unfortunately on there way still. You would think they processed most of the awarded tickets before getting to all the rejections, meaning those 25% are the dreaded pinkys.

Can someone please clear this up because I don't understand this thing about orders being partially filled. I don't want to order from Ticketmaster on Saturday, and take away from someone else's chance of getting tickets. I ordered 4 tickets for Saturday night and 4 Tickets for Sunday night totalling 1724.00 (one money order for 1000.00 and one order for 724.00). If im lucky enough to get an email from GDTSTOO before Saturday, saying I got tickets, wouldn't that mean that i'm getting my order completly filled. I don't see how it would be partially filled without GDTSTOO writting a check back to me?? I really would appreciate someone explaining this to me. Thank you, Randy

It seems as though they are sometimes fulfilling full orders, and sometimes just fulfilling partial orders.And it doesn't seem like you will know either way from GDTS until sometime after the Sat sale on what is the exact case. And since the USPS MO system seem unreliable, it's also hard to verify through them either. I know, it's not ideal. It would be nice to reduce the amount of competition a little bit on Saturday.

I keep calling 866-459-7822 daily. Every day I hear that my money order "DOES match" meaning it hasn't been cashed. Today I called and instead of getting the automated answer I'm transferred to a live person. They won't give me any information, but tell me I need to fill out a form at the post office. I hang up and try again. Again I'm transferred to a live person giving me the same information. Looking for a sign. Staying positive. . . I was married a year and a half ago, and have a 9 month old baby. This is going to be our "belated honeymoon." anxious and trying not to pull out my hair.

To those who are complaining that their order was only partially filled (or not knowing how much of the order will be filled). I'm sure it sucks not to know how many tix you are getting, but you at least know you are getting something and are going to the show. Those of us who were rejected and have to deal with the inglourious ticketbasterds, still don't know if we are even gonna get to go at all. Consider yourself lucky you got accepted...

Please note: If you only sent in one envelope and received an email stating that you will receive tickets, then your whole order will be filled. If you sent in more then one envelope, then we can only guarantee that at least one of your orders has been filled. We cannot give you the date of which order was chosen at this time. We will try to have that info available in April. If you did not include an email on your 3 x 5 we will not be able to let you know if you have received tickets. Thank you for your patience.

Just read the new post from GDTSTOO. I think they may have meant to say single money orders for one date only, and multiple money orders for multiple show dates, instead their message says "sent in one ENVELOPE" and "if you sent in multiple ENVELOPES".I think their brains might be fried from working 24/7 or from just smoking way too many green buds! Still waiting for the holy grail of all emails! Good luck to everyone!

No pink slip, but no email either. Ugh. And now this strangely worded update. PTMOD is exactly right. I'm not complaining, but geez whiz, Beaver, this is stressful. Hang in there and stay positive. :)

I think that the recent GDTS TOO update is clear: If you mailed a single envelope and ordered tickets for one or more shows in that envelope, then all of the tickets that you ordered in that envelope were filled. If you mailed multiple envelopes, say one envelope for each show, then at least one of the ticket orders from one of the envelopes was filled. The ticket orders in the other envelopes may or may not have been filled.

I think that wording makes sense. I sent 3 money orders (1/show) in 3 different envelopes, got 2 back (rejections). (Don't know what happened to my 3rd SASE, i did not get an email. I assume my 3rd SASE got lost). My friend also sent in 3 money orders, all in one envelope. She got the miracle email. But we were wondering about the vague wording and possibly of her getting tix for one night but not the other 2, and not knowing until June. Today's GDTSTOO update reads to me that she will get tix for all 3 nights. "If you only sent in one envelope and received an email stating that you will receive tickets, then your whole order will be filled."

I received a very positive email from GDTSTOO last night at 11:40PM EST. Called the USPS MO verification line and all of my money orders had changed from "does match" to "does not match." (1 GA x 3 Nights) I feel truly blessed and am excited to share my July 4th weekend with all of you folks that make up this wonderful community!!!! Thank you all so much for impacting my life in such a positive manner. And a HUGE thanks to the folks at GDTSTOO for their hard work and their dedication to the community. Best of luck to everyone still in the running for mail order and also to those who participate in Saturday's online sale!

Just went to Ticketmaster website. As of 4:19 EST $56.50 and $96.50 tickets are all SOLD OUT. Yes, the ugly word SOLD OUT for all three shows. $76.50 tickets have limit availability for all three shows. GA Pit SOLD OUT all three shows. I figure this since this was mail order only. Only tickets available are $116.50, $146.50, $196.50, $76.50 (limited) Just go to the buy tickets tab and play around and information is there. BUMMER....... No mail, is good mail...... Still waiting and chilling in NYC......

So, Bears season ticket holders get presale tickets. I just checked the volume of season ticket holders and "PSL's" (Permanent Seat Licensees). It looks like the only sections of Soldier Field that don't have the potential to be snagged by season ticket holders (scalpers) are the lower bowl sections on each end of the field, and the very top tiers on the North, South, and West sides. Two of those sections are behind the stage. Looks like this TM onsale is gonna last about 30 seconds. Good luck, everyone... http://www.chicagobears.com/tickets-and-stadium/psl-nonpsl-seating-char…

It's not sold out. Public on-sale hasn't even happened yet. Only folks able to buy today were *select* Soldier Field season ticket holders. So the seats available for those folks might be sold out in the ranges you indicated, but they didn't release all of those price point tix JUST to the season ticket holders. I'm sure they will be sold out within 1 minute on Saturday morning though.

Greetings all: After 5 weeks of intense anticipation I was unfortunate to have recieved the dreaded pinky. However, I do live in the Chicago area and I am next to public transportation to and from the city. I am offering any family oriented person/group housing accomodations in exchange for a single golden ticket. I can accomodate up to 4. Please consider this invitation when making your plans to visit our great city. Please PM me Respectfully yours, ikoiko85

Thanks for the PSL Chart. Lower price tickets that have been release so far are gone. Looks like Solider Field has about 30,000 or 35,000 PSL holders. I would say at least half these tickets sold today. By Saturday at 10 AM half of all available tickets GONE.

Have to hope that not all of the floor tix are gone from pre-sales. If so, this process was mishandled far worse than I could have possibly imagined. It seems to be turning out that only the select few, rich people and Chicago ticket holders are the ones who get to go to any of these shows. The more I hear, the more bummed out I get. I hope this is not true and that only the allotted presale tix are sold out and that there will be a lot more available to us on Saturday. I also expect all these shows to be sold out in a few minutes. Hoping for the best, but feel my chances have severely diminished in the last couple of days. Maybe they will add more shows or venues considering the huge amount of money that can be made by expanding this idea...

It wasn't for ALL season pass ticket holders today. Only a select few (from the "United Club"?). That's what others have been saying who have season passes to Soldier Field.

Another way to look at all this talk about scalpers getting all the tickets, if true, is that there are only soo many rich deadheads out there, and most of those are likely too bust to take time off to get to Chicago to see some shows. Sure, some of the best seats will be wayyyy over priced, but their will likely be lots of desperate scalpers selling tickets outside for discounted prices. Hoping for the best.

Anyone know what price levels are for what sections? Is it safe to assume the $200 tickets are GA floor?

The $196.50 tic is the floor, but the second section; GA FLOOR. While I can not say how many tics have been release today for PSL ticket holders; I can say that I have been checking the Ticketmaster website and see that certain sections and price points have no availability.

Got my email about an hour and a half ago. Email is from GDTS TOO INC and has a typos so I hope it's real. Says at "lease" one of your orders will be filled.Also has updated info reflecting today's GDTS TOO update-that if you sent in more than one envelope we cannot tell you which order is filled. I sent in 2 envelopes-one for 3 tix to the 5th and one for 2 to the 4th. For all you on pins and needles I know the feeling but hang in there. My number was 186 so it isn't happening fast. Am rooting for all and If I somehow get extras they wiil go for face in this site. If anyone has gotten a similar email I'd appreciate hearing. peace Jeff

I thought that GDTSTOO warned and requested that people not send in multiple envelopes and now they are saying they were cool with me sending in as many chances as I could have? Seems pretty greasy to load up the mailbox with multiple envelopes, had I known that was okay I would've sent in five from every family members address and kicked the angel off my shoulder saying don't be greedy. And I don't wanna rub the wrong nerve but if you get multiple tickets to all 3 shows, do a solid for someone and let someone else go to 1 of them. Sheesh! I am starting to agree with those who said one night only, but now I am starting to whine and that is not a good quality. Oh well, happy face?!
