No email, no rejection and Western Union MO's not cashed. I'm starting to think I'm screwed but just want to know! I'm really hopeful that they'll be another large round of emails tomorrow but that's my last shot. Good luck to everyone in my spot and wish you all the best. Extra for Friday and Sat...message me! Best

http://www.ebay.com/sch/Concert-Tickets-/173634/i.html?_dcat=173634&_rn… Check out the ebay site above. Tickets have been sold already on the open market: $600 to $750 per ticket. This is just crazy. Set of 4 sold for $3,100. This is totally wrong. I understand the supply and demand system of the economy, but this is wrong on all levels. Told the wife already, if we score tickets and have extras; we will only sell on this site to people that I have read their posts. This is going to be one ugly scene with the buying and selling of tickets in Chicago. Still waiting and chilling in NYC. No mail is still good mail. Peace out............

No Money orders cashed, no email, no rejection letter. And tickets on sale tomorrow and Saturday! Gonna cost some bucks, but I'm tired of waiting and hoping. "put your money where your love is, baby"!

I agree with esvbbv. This is disgusting. The Bears presage was a bunch of BS. Why sell tickets to those who only plan to resell for an obscene profit? GDTS needs to post a new status. Are they done notifying people? If I have extras they are going for the price I paid.

Just a little nervous from the fall...Unfortunately I didn't get my Birthday miracle yesterday...still no news at all BUT HAPPY BDAY TO YOU!!!CHOUSE 13 And thanks for the BDay wishes folks It is nearly impossible to drum up hope and fight off depression at this point, although I was encouraged to see people still getting emails this afternoon!! Please keep posting your victories, defeats, cities, time of notification, etc. Last night I dreamt, not about letters or tickets per se, but email! Dreamt I thought I saw it in my inbox and freaked out but then realized it wasn't from GDTSTOO.I appreciate all the hard work they are doing. I don't think I can manage the funds for the CID stuff tomorrow :0 P.S. I have been trying really hard to not respond directly to any of the negative stuff being posted, but I just can't help this one...Somebody called Unkle Sam Kanye West a while back and that was hilarious, BUT, I happen to love the term Ass Clown , however when he used it, it invoked that image of somebody pointing a finger, with three pointing back at them.

My first Grateful Dead show was at Chicago's Soldier Feild in 1993. A big bolt of lightning hit down right on the edge of the Stadium just as a foggy orange green haze of fog rolled in off the lake . What a show, I have been in love with every aspect of this band ever since that day. I sent in money orders in each way as directed in one envelope post marked on the 20th just like many of the rest of you ive been playing mailbox blackjack and checking my email more than i ever remember. Nothing just a blank. Guess i will put that old finger in the wind . Waiting on a Miracle. PEACE BE WITH YOU ALL. goodluck to you all. Darkstarr1971

@newuser123 People are already buying tickets on ebay. So far I saw 6 sales between $650 and $3100. Bummer...... People will buy. Many of the Deadheads going to Chicago have lots of disposable income. Nothing wrong with that. Wish'em well, but the regular guy will be priced out. Only true deadheads on this site who will do the right thing and sell to deadheads at face and reasonable price points does the regular guy have a chance. many miracles for the community.......

I received mine late last night. MO's are still not cashed, so I agree with others that it is not worth the time to check. Good luck to those still waiting and I hope the ticket sales today and tomorrow are kind to you!

Feel horrible. No information, can't get off work for tickets. This isn't fun anymore. Have a hotel at intercontinental, paid in full. Suppose to be taking my 16 y/o daughter on her 16th birthday to her first show. My first show, I was 16. Now my last show I want to share with my daughter. So bummed. It is my son's 12th birthday and he drew a pretty nice skeleton in a top suit with the American flag in the background. Ugh.

Went to bed last night in limbo. Woke up and checked email... Email came at 11:31:54 #385 all three nights, $212.50 tickets, one envelope, no art, sent in from Minneapolis area, post marked January 20, USPS MO's have not been cashed as of this morning. My wife is taking credit because she filled out the envelope and 3x5. My handwriting sucks. Good luck to all!

So all sites are down (GDTSTOO, dead50.net, VIP ticket sale site),which leads me to speculate that some disgruntled head has done a Denial Of Service attack or something on the sites.
