Randy, Sure, you can buy the streaming shows on StubHub for $300 each :) Just kidding, but someone will probably try to find a way to scalp them. They have not explicitly stated how and when you can purchase the webcasts, but the various articles have said that you can buy the package of all 5 shows for $75, and that individual shows will be available for ~$30 each, as of July 1st. No info on how or when or where to purchase. Keep your eyes open. See this article and take it at face value since it't not official. http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2015/04/22/grateful-dead-reunion-shows-t… "Fans can buy a package for all five nights starting on May 1 – May 15 for a pre-sale price of $79.95. After that, the Santa Clara webcasts will be priced at $19.95 per night and the Chicago webcasts will be $29.95 per night. The Pay-Per-View price will be suggested at $29.95, but could vary depending on the provider."

We know Phil will deliver and Bobby is already sounding healthy and in tune so that's all I need and beyond ecstatic they're letting that lovelight shine and take hold but curious anyone heard any video/audio leaks from Trey camp on his newly acquired Dead songs? Scarlet-Phire will be a blazin' I can imagine.

That observation reminded me of a parking lot experience at the Dominguez Hills shows in 90. Some young guys, 20 somethings parked near us with a keg in the back of a pickup. They were shooting funnels of beer as soon as they came to a stop. As we watched the guys in admiration we received a handout to "please not be involved in blatant behavior". When they got the handout one of them asked, "What the hell does blatant mean?" I responded, "That's like when you run up to a mounted police officer and throw a full beer bottle at his head." He nodded and they covered the keg with a blanket.

I just visited the link for Fathom Events: http://www.fathomevents.com/event/fare-thee-well/more-info/details The site sez "Tickets available Monday May 4th" which I believe translates to a fixed number of active customers can Log-in so as to not crash the broadcast. They also suggest to sign up for The Fathom email list to get updates for this "On-Sale for May 4th". If there is a package deal of 5 shows together, I'd BUY IT !!!! Even if your going to some show's, set your dvr n watch it in your tent after the show (if the Comcast commercial is correct). I'm attending Dear Jerry and got denied Chicago n CA. This is a happy alternative for the disabled heads. Cub

I'm buying the pay per view package, or some of it leastways, but what I need to know is can I watch it when I want to/anytime I like ? I'm not going to be able to see it live and will need to see it later. Unclear from any of the info provided. Billy S

Not sure where best to pose this question, so will try here. The pay-per-view signup says the webcast will stream on any device - does that include Roku? I know that MLB.com is available on Roku, although I have not used it to watch a game yet. Would be sweet if I could dial up the shows with what is really my most reliable streamer. Thanks for any knowledge anyone can convey.

New to the site. Any information available on acquiring a parking pass for the Santa Clara shows? I'm sure this has been asked and answered, already, but I'm a noob. Thanks

I emailed live alliance tv to ask about delayed viewing. Here is their response: The shows will be video on demand, meaning you will have 45 days to watch them. Once you start watching, you will have 24 hours to complete your viewing. I am assuming this means that when you start one show, you have 24 hours to watch that show. And you have a total of 45 days to complete watching all of the shows. So you can schedule a viewing party at your convenience!!

the gathering at our Regal Theater in Harrisburg Pa last night was lightly attended. Less people than last year......General consensus was it was ok at best. no one there wants to sit in a theater for the upcoming shows. No scene or show enhancement aids available.

Hey there, this is Gene Hinesley from Manor,TX. I went to a theatre in north Austin. The Regal Theatre at The ArborThe show was not sold out, so it those who wanted to dance had plenty of room. I thought the sound was mixed real well and the boys never sounded better. With so many choices I would have to say my best moment was Jerry's guitar playing on "Deal". That song alone was worth enough for the price of entry. Other hi lights for me was "Drums>Space>The Other Ones>The Wheel and Morning Dew. Overall, a very good show and the boys were ready to go to work. Very impressive. Sincerely, Eugene Hinesley

i thought the Space was great also. The best part was the few minutes the cameraman had no idea what was going on or where the boys were on stage due to low lighting. That was hilarious!

(Posted this on the 'Meet Up At The Movies' comment section as well) Only 20-25 folks at the theater in our neck of the woods, but a motivated bunch. ;) it was a good show from the time period, with some interesting song selections and unusual ordering. Nice to see it after all this time. I'm of the opinion that the 'circular energy' dynamic between the crowd & the band had more to do with song choices than you might think, however. Might be hard to play a bright-happy-sunshiny day set for a damp & squelchy crowd. It's a synergistic relationship, a 'gestalt', which means that there's a direct correlation between the music, the band and the audience and where it all interrelates in the moment. It's also not surprising to get a show that doesn't have any of the big rave-up numbers at the end of a multi-day run, considering that they've already been played. ("Choke me off in shallow water before I get too deep. " - EB & NB) That being said, I do have a few technical complaints. I remain unimpressed with the sound quality of most of the Fathom Events theater-casts. They seem unable to get a decent low bass full frequency range sound out of even a fully equipped Dolby surround system. It just needed more Phil... Would have been nice to hear the kick drums too. ;p Even on their longest running series of broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera there is some issue that does not allow the full tonal balance of the source mix to be reproduced in the theater. I'm sure that the audio mix sounded great coming out of Airshow Mastering, but we surely didn't get to hear that in the theatre. I was also saddened by the overall quality of the camera work, editing, and general murkiness of the visual elements. Video cameras in that time period were not really capable of capturing the colors or subtle differences in lighting intensities that were a trademark of Candace's work. Felt sorry for the camera operators during drums/space who were desperately searching for anything onstage that had enough light to register an image. So, it's certainly a product of its time period. No surprise why it hasn't been seen until now, either. I'm glad it exists, and I did have a good time seeing this show again from a much dryer location in space-time. ;) ************************************************************ Alpine Valley Music Theatre, East Troy WI (7/19/89) Hell in a Bucket Sugaree Mama Tried Mexicali Blues Althea Victim or the Crime West L.A.

Totally agree with your sound assessment of the theater experience. Need more Phil for sure, his bass is always turned up when you see them in concert. I didn't get that live show bass feeling from the theater at all. The video quality was poor but it probably couldn't be helped. +1 on the review.

Sound was pretty darn good in Emeryville. As we were about to go in, my friend had a hassle with the ticket machine, so I was waiting at the gate while he dealt with it. The older of the two ticket-takers, a middle-aged African-American lady, was telling the young guy she worked with how back in the day, she was in the service stationed in Philadelphia, and her friends said hey, military gets free tickets, the Grateful Dead are playing at the Spectrum, let's go. I never heard of the Grateful Dead, she says. Never mind, says her pals, let's go anyway. You'll see. And we got there, and, WOW.

Not sure if anyone is still looking, but there are now tickets available via TicketFly. Additional artists added as well (Grace Potter, Peter Frampton and Allen Toussaint). Link is: https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/803283?utm_medium=bks Can't wait to treat the SC and Chicago scalpers the same way! I guess we'll be reliving the early 70's again with Frampton. Do you ... you, feel like we do?

I just need to add a comment that I have a hard time accepting the promoting of 50 years of the Grateful Dead. I remember my first show like it was yesterday.(My posting name) My last one was at the Spectrum in 1994. So many changes in that short of time. So many beautiful memories.The band formed in 1966 and Jerry passed in 1995. That was the end of the Grateful Dead. Sad as it was, it's true. That makes 29 years; let's call it 30. This is a money making event for the fans who didn't get to see or, see just a couple shows. I would love to hear from others about their thoughts. Thanks and I love and miss you Jerry, Bill Graham, Scully, Stanley and artist Rick Griffin and more.

Hey dude or dudette, I think you should make it out to Terrapin Crossroads and have a conversation with Phil, whom is open to talking with strangers at his restaurant, he really makes it seem that the core 4 just wanted to have one last event for their fans, because they felt it was demanded. They are fully aware of the $$$ they already have and I really don't think that is their bottom line, from the number of shows they play, I think they just like to play and it shows whenever Phil takes the stage. I'm sure they all would agree the Chicago ticket situation was messed up, that is why they tried something else for Santa Clara. I know what you mean about The Dude not being there, but this is still going to one hell of a fun 9 days!!!!! Peace!!

of course it is not THE Grateful Dead, but the spirit and music of THE Grateful Dead went on even after Jerry could not. Not to split hairs, but I believe they are celebrating 50 years of the Grateful Dead, not claiming to be THE Grateful Dead. And for that celebration, I AM grateful. I can't wait. But one point I'm aligned 100% with you...there are a few songs that I think I DON'T want to hear anyone else playing with the core 4. Dark Star is one of the them. Stella Blue is another. I am very anxious(in a good way) to hear what Trey does with Estimated Prophet.

I would be shocked if Dark Star did not appear at some point in the five shows-- it was such an essential song for them. I am not the biggest Trey/Phish fan, but it sounds like he is really taking his role for these gigs seriously and learning how to play the GD and fit in well. I think he can pull it off. RE: 50 years vs. 30 years-- yes, the Grateful Dead only made it to 30 years, but the music and culture is celebrating 50 years. I cannot wait for Chicago-- less than 2 months now!

Back to my original position when the announcement of the "announcement" was put up in 2014. Then they announce 3 shows as a thank you for 50 years. the whole process and the shows will be a Fuck show. All the boys did was tarnish their legacy and fuck a lot of people out of a lot of money. Think TMT/PACMAN. No Camping, No vending, sitting in a parking lot of a stadium ($60 to park)It doesn't matter what they play it isn't going to be a Dead show or happening.....

Refresh me 11, you are going to one, some, or all these shows right? Or maybe not and that is why you are so sour! The whole process is a fuck show in your mind, cause you let it be!! Most of us are stoked and are taking these shows at face value and what they are truly about. Contrary to what you think, these shows will not tarnish their legacy, except for you losers who will let it! They CANNOT allow camping on the lots, there are things known as city ordinances and liability/insurance issues that prevent that from happening. It's a city, so of course you will have to travel a bit to get camping. What the hell brothers and sisters [those who are whining], we went to several venues back in the day and had to travel 20 to 30 mins away to camp. As I have posted on here at least 2 or 3 times > Chicago has already approved and will be allowing a Shakedown w/ vending. It very well might be the Shakedown of all Shakedowns!!! Grateful Dead songs will be played by members of the REAL band, so it will be a Dead show. And, yes there will be heads ranging from all ages/experiences [from those who have never seen a show to those who have seen hundreds]. The spirit of the Grateful Dead will be around the whole wkend in Chicago, so many bands/musicians are converging on the area throwing down sets, tributes, and collaborations > so, you can guarantee it will be a happening! You can call it whatever you want, I'm calling it a Celebration of 50 years of the Grateful Dead (~);}
