In response to Jeff, I got the same email at 1:48 p.m. Pacific time. It had the number 186 and did have the same "lease" typo. Good luck and best wishes to all.

Hey now chill. I only sent two envelopes-total of 5 tix between the two. Hardly greedy. many of the one envelopes sent for 12.I did it the way I always have, (have been mail order since it started) in case one got lost. split it into smaller orders. probably would have got all my tix if in one but just glad to have 2 or 3. If i have extra which isn't looking likely i will do as always-sell at face to another head or miracle somebody. am thinking now it's real because can see on my desktop it is from GDTSTOO@gdtstoo.com

I had not paid attention to the numbers...I'm 74, sounds good to me right?5pm. and we sent 2 seats for 3 nights in one envelope. Hopefully the clarification means we get both tkts for all 3 nights. Whew. Feeling like celebrating from now...until July.

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, I than check two other MO that were in the same envelope and I get the recorded message Does Match Hoping going to a live person means they are cashed. Any thoughts

I feel like the most irrelevant fan. Sent MO in on the 20th following instructions to a t. For one night only. No pink slip. No email. MO not cashed. Just a helpless feeling that some of us that have followed the band for years just don't matter. I'm happy for those who have had their miracles fulfilled. Just in a funk with the whole thing. Maybe tomorrow? Until then I fester with ptmosd.

The system is set up after so many attempts to check a MO to send you to a live person.

Went for four $212.50 seats for all three nights, working with others. No pink slip. No email. Paid the $18.30 to trace USPS MO. Called the USPS accounting folks and the guy said, "I hope you have an extra $2500 laying around because your MO's haven't been cashed". Maybe Saturday will be my day...

I saw the Dead for my first time July 4th, 1990. I saw the Dead for my last time July 9th, 1995. This July 4th, I will celebrate the Silver and Gold reunion (my silver, the Dead's Golden) at the same location which I saw my last show. Call me poetic--but I can't think of a more beautiful way to bring an end to this long strange trip. Beginning next year, I'm gonna have a new week of festivities to celebrate. July 3rd-July 9th will forever be celebrated as "Dead Week." Good luck to everyone this Saturday!

Received this tonight..... Congratulations! Your order will be filled for the Grateful Dead 50th Reunion performances at Soldier Field in Chicago, IL on July 3, 4, 5, 2015. If you only sent in one envelope then your whole order will be filled. If you sent in more then one envelope, we can only guarantee that at lease one of your orders has been filled. We cannot give you the date of which order was chosen at this time. Your commemorative tickets will arrive in June. Please hold all emails. Check gdtstoo.com for the latest updates. We hope to see you at the shows! The Crew of GDTS TOO February 2015 “The sky was yellow and the sun was blue” Robert Hunter Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited I don't know what to do. My miracle in the form of a email has arrived. I only sent one envelope. Never even thought about sending more than one. For everyone's info: I received this email about 7:30 pm EST on 2/25/2015 and just checked the post office money order phone number for tracking at 12:20 AM EST on 2/26/2015 and all my money orders are still in the post offices system. So it looks like the theory everyone has been relying on is bogus. Just an update from a very happy head Good luck to everyone!! If you get confused..... just listen to the music play

Having received my pinkie last week and NOT wishing to fight the limited tickets left for sale on Ticket Master on Saturday, I'm thinking the best shot at tickets is tomorrow morning at 10am CST via the CID ticket and travel packages (http://www.cidentertainment.com/events/gratefuldead50/travel-packages/). I used these guys during the '09 Dead tour and I can vouch their services are first class. Of course, back then, that was a tour with many show dates and venues; now we're faced with only three shows and one venue...not to mention a wheel barrow of cash for these packages.

when tickets first went on sale ... i think $200+ tickets were all reserved seats. now i see they are selling $200+ GA field tickets. the seating charts have changed ... obviously reflecting the plan. does anyone know if gdtstoo is 'selling' the $200+ GA field ... or ... if you got tickets thru gdtstoo @ the $200+ price if they are reserved ????? any seating charts to be seen reflecting the price of tickets to actual seats ... seems to be 'levels w/o any indication of price' ????

Thanks for the updated seating chart.This is horrid. Totally disagree with the producer's decision. 360º seating changes everything...from attendance, to sound, to visuals, to crowd comfort. That stadium floor will be a cluster-F.

i think everything will be fine ... this celebration is going to be a hoot/classic. i am one who wants a seat behind me ... 'cause at 60+ years ... when i close my eyes to enjoy i sometimes tip over .... hence the need for a seat. if i have been given GA field for my order i hope to swap w/ someone who has a seat. i just want to be in the stadium and take it all in ... one way or another.cheers ...

The way I interpret that seating chart is that the obstructed seats are "shaded" thus indicating unavailable. There is no color key or level to correspond to those seats.

Is it possible for you to please post a general message today as to the status of tickets? Are rejections still being sent out? Have all "acceptances" been emailed out? I know you are extremely busy, and the number of ticket request was well beyond what you expected. And I do not think of myself as a complainer. But for some of us, a lot of money is being held up, and we have no idea what is the current situation. (And to anyone, if it is determined that the postal money orders are considered "lost", is there a way to get a refund?) Thank you so much

Kurt Cobain also said he would never wear a tie dye unless it was made from Jerry Garcia's blood. So ya.....keep that negativity coming it's really helping everyone out. Are you this bitter hanging out over a beer and joint too? Damn you complain a lot man and complain a lot to people who could care less about the negativity. What's going on with you? Anything I can help out with? Like seriously why go to someone's birthday just to whine and pisss on their cake. Dles not seem like something a deadhead should be doing, does it? I'm not happy about this things innerworkings entirely either but damn man...

Hey folks: For anyone looking into the CID travel packages that go on sale tomorrow (Friday), they just sent me the following e-mail in answer to a question I had. And for sure, I can confirm the seating config has radically changed from an "intimate" Soldier Field to a full mad house of deadheads. Here's their note: Thanks for reaching out, and thank you for your interest in our 'Fare Thee Well' packages. Our 'Workingman's Dead' package will include 'Reserved' seats. These seats will be in a lower section, but I cannot confirm the proximity to the stage. Our 'Premium Reserved' seats will be our highest priced tickets, located in the lower bowl closest to the stage, roughly section 142. Please refer to the seating chart at the following link: http://www.ticketmaster.com/the-grateful-dead-chicago-illinois-07-03-20… I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to assist. Best of luck tomorrow, Greg

Since no information has been forthcoming, I presume I am getting no tickets. Fine. When will I get my money refunded. I still have a wife's 50th birthday present to buy. Thank you in advance for your reply.

I actually emailed them as well, inquiring probably the same question regarding reserved seats vs. premium reserved seats. This was their response:Reserved seats will be in the 300 sections while the premium reserved seats are in the 100 sections. I do have to say, I don't see them being able to give 6 premium reserved tickets (2 per night) and a 3 night stay at a downtown Chicago hotel over 4th of July weekend, for the price of the Workingmans Dead packages. I'm thinking the Workingmans packages seats are probably like the $79 to $99 price range tickets.

In Limbo along with many others I reckon. Hopefully they are gearing up for many more e-mails today. Much angst and wringing of hands....

Were there others in the email distribution, or was it just you? I am curious if they created distribution groups with everyone as bcc:. The next questions are how many groups and number in each.

Totally agree... Reserved seats are the nose bleeds; premium reserved is the lower bowel. Hence, the $1K difference in price and accommodations as well.

Just received a confirm at 2:12pm for 4 tix all nights. Requested GA-pit or fancy reserved. Not sure which tickets I will get. I called the USPS money order line too many times for the base price tickets (although as recently as Monday they were "matching"), and the supplemental money orders for the reserved tix are still "matching." Best of luck to all those in limbo land.

2:23 est today was #324 and they started Tuesday, right?Maybe #600 by Saturday am? Wondering if this is orders filled? If so, and 10% of 66,000 orders are to be filled... We may not know anything for weeks... No matter...God bless the Grateful Dead and sorry to hear the (few) bitter peeps The guy that thinks the Dead are ass clowns for greed and admits in the same rant he will make profit, just not "huge" on his extras,..... please wear "I am a jack ass" shirt to the shows so we know whose burrito to fill with ex-lax.

We are all human, we are all imperfect....I was down n out prior to 2:23 pm est.... Angry and despondent...and others have the right to feel the same. My wife and I are blessed to be afforded the opportunity to put closure on this ride, and it is closure for me. after Chicago, no more Bobby or Phil or Furthur....I will live with my Watkins Glen thru Ratdog San Diego 7/6/14 memories. Peace and luck to all who remain. Looking forward to Soldier Field....and the chaos it brings.

Last night I received an email indicating that I my order would be filled. I sent one envelope requesting two tickets for each night. I sent mine on day one of the postmark date 1/20. I wonder of all of the orders received at GDTSTOO, how many were postmarked 1/20 and how many were post marked 1/21 and 1/22 and so on? Too bad GDTSTOO couldn't have handled all of the tickets, keeping Ticketmaster out of the process completely, though I suppose that deal was put together between the promoter and the venue. Best wishes to everyone. Now on to finding an affordable room in Chi Town on 4th of July weekend.
