CID site is still down. Why the flying fruitcake didn't someone figure this out before hand, and everyday I wonder why they did not do just one extra show with unlimited attendance? I think the Muppets wouldve planned this better! Keep Chicago, make the cash from the deep pockets and now announce a one-off in a giant friggin field in CO front range or CA, something for all the commonfolk. I am guessing this 50 year anniversary will not be remembered by many in quite the way the band had anticipated or deserves, which is unfortunate way to end such a splendid, inspirational and free form legacy. But hey, I guess they're only human and often get looked at as some sort of demi-gods, when it's really just the mus(e)ic plays the band. Stepping off the soapbox in the far corner of the park. Good luck tomorrow everybody! Hear my heathen atheist prayers oh great music gods!

I was choosing my package to purchase (once the site let me in at 10:02) and EVERY package was sold out. Come on! If this company only had 10 or 12 total packages they really should have told us. I feel more upset about this than I do not knowing anything about my Mail Order.I called them yesterday and they said they had no idea how many packages they were going to get, but they had to know they weren't going to get enough to last 2 minutes. I honestly feel so deflated after going through all the mail order crap and now the CID crap and getting nothing, yet some Bears fan is allowed to by 48 tickets and sell them online for huge cash. For the first time in my adult life I really feel like ending my concert days.

Randyaronov, I don't think anyone here knows, we're all in limbo. I would like to assume that the good folks at GDTSTOO will send out an announcement once all emails have been sent, but no one knows what they're thought process is or their methods. I imagine that once they realized what they had gotten themselves into, they made a plan and stuck with it. It may not have been the best plan, but they can't turn back and they're doing their est. Good luck.

So, took a good solid hour to get over how crushing and disappointing missing out on this today was. But like all things in life, it is what it is, right? Going to take the considerable investment I was going to make into this event, and go to the beach instead I think, bring along the iPod and play some great music on the beach relaxing. Can't win them all. All you can do is make the most of what you can do I suppose.

CID needs to learn that a database has a max number of connections and that is configurable, configure it correctly and you web page scales. Misconfigure it and your website does not scale. Also you test before you go live. I refreshed the page at 9:57 central and it returned errors, it continued to return errors until well after 10:00 central. Surely ticketmaster could have advised them on how to design a front entry portal. It was a real dissapointment to have technical issues on their end cause the problem. Does anyone know if TM has lower tier seats available ? Or did all the 100 level seats go to Shapiro ? -- Tom

Those of us who have been around for a while remember the days when mail order was mail order not instant notification. So everyone should think about Easin' On Down the Road, Miracles happen and if the don't remember and listen to the music weh ave been gifted with for 50 years. Just continue to enjoy the ride! The music will carry us all for many more years to come.My guess is Jerry is sitting back laughin' and smilin' watching folks get so hyped up! It IS the music that feeds our souls no matter where we are! Happy for all who get to the shows and Grateful for 50 years of tunes!

How come the GA Floor tix will go for $200 now on TM when the GA Pit tix went for $100 on mail order? This means the area closer to the stage is half the price than the section further away? Say what?! And the lucky mail order folks got to skip their surcharges? What in blazes is going on here???? Any one who got accepted for mail order has NO ROOM TO COMPLAIN! Y'all are getting the "deal" of a lifetime...

I was thinking we could compile our e-mail addresses and send to Elvis at GDTS for a status check. It couldn't hurt to ask. Still remaining positive but I getting increasingly worried about the location of my $1200 MO.

The 4 winds passed through Chicago last night around 10:30PM and a Miracle happened. The sky was yellow and the sun was blue. Thank You GDTS TOO for the email, you're work was massive and I feel more than blessed to be selected. As an FYI the subject line had a number on it, mine was in the 350 range so as of last night it appears that's how many emails have been sent. Those of you waiting - I'm hoping the winds blow your way. But just to get some facts together I wanted to let you know that my MO have not been cashed according to USPS so those that are posting that their MO's are cashed may have some concerns. My envelope was not decorated but did have a Janis Joplin forever stamp! I have done MO many times in the past, some worked some didn't. I do buy a lot of merchandise so perhaps they compared lists there, don't know! Keep the faith - keep it real - keep it Kind Peace

Greetings all: After 5 weeks of intense anticipation I was unfortunate to have received 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 accommodations in exchange for a single golden ticket. I can accommodate up to 4. This offer includes pick up and drop off at airport as well. Imagine not having to deal with making transportation or housing plans after this long wait. Your chariot awaits. Please consider this invitation when making your plans to visit our great city. Please PM me

Keep posting your email number. At least that way people know that GDTS is still rockin' the process and that there is hope for a golden ticket. Let's put some perspective around the whole ticket/CID package sale today. I am reading a lot of blame directed at the band. They did not have to do anything to mark the 50th anniversary. The four of them could have had a private event with friends and family. I am thankful that they decided to include the fans. My guess is that they are being paid for agreeing to play and not responsible for the way the ticket sales are being handled. CID did not do a great job making the site available or quantifying the number of each package available. The number of available packages was probably very small to begin with. There will be tickets tomorrow. Be ready to start clicking as soon as the sale opens. Don't buy tickets from scalpers, or from Bears fans who are trying to make a quick buck. Be positive and positive things will happen.

Does anyone know if a 3 day package will be available from ticketmaster tomorrow (one stop click) or does one need to get the 3rd, 4th, and 5th seperately? Thanks.

.... try again tomorrow. I was even willing to pony up for a 3-day, but nothing available! CID's server was swamped at 10:01:01 CST and I couldn't get in for several previous minutes. By the time I did after several minutes, nothing was left.

For those getting shut out at hotels downtown, or on the north side, I suggest trying Evanston. Public transportation on two train lines (Metra and Red line L) and right near the best beaches in the city.

Hey Now. Just have to speak my peace – as I did in '95. No ticket = No Show. Stay Home. The only chance that DeadHeads have to redeem ourselves from the 1995 Tour Of Tragedy (riots at Deer Creek and gate crashers at other shows) is to not do the same thing in 2015. It sucks not having tickets. I am hearing a lot (and I mean a lot!) of people saying they are going to Chicago even without tickets. This will only cause the same problems that existed in the 1990's. More traffic, less parking, and more problems from the police. As the band said in their letter dated 7/5/95: The spirit of the Grateful Dead is at stake. If you choose to ignore the band's request (which you shouldn't), at least be a Deadhead and not a Shithead and act right. Remember, if the band wanted to play for free – they would. A link to the letter the Dead put out can be found at http://hake.com/gordon/deadletter.html. This Darkness Got To Give. Let your Lovelight Shine!

You were only able to buy as many tickets as you have season tickets -- - I was lucky that I have a family member that has club season tickets and we were able to buy through the pre-sale -- I'm sure a lot of these people will be buying and reselling the tickets but that is kind of the deal with PSL's- those season tickets cost $300-$600 per seat/ per game / plus you have to buy the seats for life -- Also only the club members were able to get in on the pre sale which is the 2 upper levels on the east side--

Been to well over 350 shows dead and dead spinoffs.... Even been a shrink for them on 90s east coast runs... Showing up without admission gives the scene a really bad name.... That's why I was there in the 90's... When they were banned from playing venues.... To deflect attention from the bad...and there was a lot of it. Please use common sense, miracles occur, I got mine yesterday, but common sense should enter into decisions...I believe it's the end of the ride as I know it...lets go out with dignity if we possibly can. Prayers to all who go Ticketmaster tomorrow, I got tix and will be sleeping in my car....as I got no accommodations. Peace... The sun will shine in my backdoor someday!

$1000 for a single nose-bleed ticket$1500 for a single floor GA ticket PLEASE DON'T DO IT FOLKS! Take your chances tomorrow, but don't pay the scalper prices! Make them lower their ridiculous prices, if no one buys them they will be forced to lower them to face value. Don't give in to scalpers, they are SCUM!

I have accommodations but no tickets. If I fail tomorrow, maybe we can work out a trade for an extra ticket or 2 or 3. Anyone else interested in 3 days at the Marriot O'Hare? I got my reservations before the rates were hiked. A place to stay will cost a ticket for each night... P.S. ...but not sure how to possibly make this work, however, I'm not flying out there without a ticket in hand.

GDTS, I thank you for the work you have done in the last couple of decades. But at this time you really cannot take the 2 minutes necessary to update fans on the situation of their money and ticket requests? I appreciate the ideals of all that say to remain patient, and that miracles can happen. But there now seems to be some arrogance that says that you do not need to further respond to a situation that was beyond your original expectations. Communication does much to sooth the soul. Silence only creates angst. If we don't have tickets, so be it. But let us know. Or if you will continue to be sending out acceptances for 2 (or how many) days, then fine. But let us know. Am I really being so negative in requesting this?

I feel what you guys are saying. It would be nice to have somebody spend a few minutes to say something probably like this: "We are doing the best we can. We are still processing envelopes. If you have not received your pink slip OR your ticket award e-mail, then you still will receive one or the other in the next 2 weeks, as we continue to finish processing all the envelopes" If they were at 75% processed as of last Monday, and it took then about a month to do that, then you have to figure they should be done by next week. This is nuts. With the CID VIP thing crashing this morning and selling out in seconds, it just is so tough on so many people that really want to go to at least one show. Hopefully tomorrow lots of fans can get tickets.

Hello My Nervous Friends,I have not seen anyone from Boston on these forums! Anyone out there? What is your status? I have recd no email or rejection letter. CID crashed.....so bummed!....GDTSTOO?
