Those attending Leftover Salmon's July 3 & 4 concert at Park West [Chicago] can view the Fare Thee Well webcast with their fellow concertgoers. At setbreak of Fare Thee Well show, LoS will perform a special acoustic set and will play a full electric set after Fare Thee Well concludes each night. July 3rd's acoustic set will highlight Old and in the Way and July 4th's acoustic set will showcase Garcia/Grisman favorites. Hell, if I wasn't already goin to the FTW shows on those days, you can best believe I would be there!!! Yes Truckin, the SC shows will be grand in their own right!

Personally, since I struck out for Chicago, I am really looking forward to the moment in Santa Clara when the band walks out on stage and all the anticipation for these final five shows will have its first full thrust of emotion let loose! The moment they kick into the first song it will truly be a once in a lifetime experience( because all those in attendance that night will be there because they really want to be there). Then we will know the final five have begun!! AND SO IT HAS BEGUN......and we all know that without Jerry it's not a true Grateful Dead show. What we DO know, is that these shows are a celebration of him, the band, the music and the Dead Heads! So go shake it SUGAREE!

Check out the 50th Anneversary of the Acid tests. A true Merry Prankster event. Indoor camping for thousands. Headliners to be announced. Just down the block from Soldier Field. Steve Kimock with Melvin Seals and others with a Jerry Garcia Tribute at House of Blues. There is a Grateful Dead Art Exhibit rumored to be at the Art Institute Of Chicago that weekend as well. Stanley mouse and others will be showing and selling their wares at a to be announced location. The Leftover Salmon gig looks killer. This is just So Far. Many things have been rescheduled and cancelled to accommodate Grateful Dead related events 4th of July weekend in Chicago. The city is considering extending CTA service hours to accommodate late night travelers. "Nothing's for certain, It could all go wrong. We could have Us a High Time, Livin' the Good Life ! Well I know."

Im thinking everybody has booked up for Chi-Town, plus there is not the venue space around Levi stadium as there is at Soldier Field. Another thing is the intrigue. It's not as intense as with the Chicago shows so I guess it will have to be just us 65,000+ Heads that make up our own fun that weekend. I'm sure we can figure something out. There will be some fUN guYs there I'm sure!!

FTW my hopeful Deadhead friends. Fear not I am not attending any of the shows. I struck out on all options for GA tickets for both venues. I knew from the moment I could not order GA from GDTSTOO only the $100 tickets this was going to be bad ( I'm trying not to swear)have a great time. I hope all those attending don't have the same experience as those attending the TMT/PACMAN fight. such as: I cant believe I spent all that money for that (insert preferred adjective)fight which wasn't a fight. BTW I have turned down offers of FACE value tickets which I can easily afford. "somebody" is making a (insert preferred adjective) of money but they are not making it off me for this whatever you want to call it. BTW I saw Darkstar Orchestra Friday night for $30 which may just be better.....

Lord I'm not one to complain I just find another reason to smile smile smile! Parking for the Chicago shows are about as much as I paid for a ticket to the show itself. Worth it, all of it. Whatever I need to pay to hear that sweet music. I hear that beautiful music and always will above all the nonsense and negativity in this blessed world :) :) :)

Try a post on Forums/Tapers/vining or in the old media forum as well. There were a lot of asks a couple months back. Shouldn't be too hard to find someone willing to do a B&P deal. ; )

I have hoped the prices would inch down, but the decline has slowed....my wife and I are driving to Chicago Friday night, but I really want just two tickets to 7/5 in my hand before we leave. I have six weeks to make that happen, and I will not succumb to scalper scum. Wish me luck, Klanger.

I just saw SC 6/28 tickets listed on Stubhub below face value. It is 11:40PM PDT on 05/10/2015 and I just saw the following: Sec 422, Row 20, Qty2-4 (no view), $50.00 each Pretty sure these were $59.50 tickets. Anyone looking to get in the door, it is starting to open up for us. I'm still looking for Sat 6/27 myself. Would those that scored e-mailorder tickets please post the original cost (price + service fees) for each price level for the Santa Clara tickets? I think I've got a printout with all the original ticket prices, but I was shutout of everything and can't find anything listing the service fees. Would be nice to know what full original total costs were. Thanks.

Thought here, first off I find greed to be abominable and a sad exchange. On these scalpers and over inflated tickets it's a true shame/bad karma BUT explain to me how some folks from the beginning were gung ho and spent $500 a night on hotel and airfare in thousands. I'd rather pay more to see the band I love and sleep in a cheap fleabag hotel anyday. This is in no way condoning any above face tickets but I find it ironic.

There is limited availability of 12 and 20 person Sky Suites for the Chicago Fare The Well shows. They are obstructed view but there will be big screens showing the band. The tickets are $200 and you must buy the whole suite. I don't know which dates are available but if you can round up enough buddies to do this it will at least get you in. You can contact them at suites@soldierfield.net and ask for information. Hope this helps!

I have been working hard with my associates to procure a suitable site for camping and vending for the Soldier Field shows. I am almost there. We will be able to have at least 300, perhaps as many as 900 campsites. We will have live music and shuttle busses as well. We hope to stream the shows to a large outdoor screen. There will be Vending, a Farmer's Market and more. 40 minutes from Soldier Field. Interested parties should contact me ASAP with suggestions and to make reservations. We will have a Website set up for tickets very soon. Stay tuned! contact: jeff dogma2100@yahoo.com

anybody in on this? 80 bucks for all five shows, can't seem to find out if they will be simulcast on the web or pay per view, and, do I really have the time to sit down and watch all five shows over two weekends. decisions, decisions... but that is a deal at 80 bucks for all five shows, it's 30 bucks just for 1 Chicago show. anyway it would be great to sit at home and catch these shows, a good call to do this, too bad they didn't let the faithful know ahead of time that they were going to simulcast, but that's the way marketing works in this day and age. any info would be appreciated about these final show broadcasts.

While you can. I imagine that this offer will expire very soon. I am adding a 2nd "Comcast DVR PRO" to my home theater just to save the 5 shows on as back-up from my main DVR-PRO. Now it's time to see if all that COMCAST advertising is true. I want the future of awesome steaming my home DVR shows out to wherever my location is. However I did see some disclaimer's along-side some recent pay-per-view options that would prevent Comcast from fulfilling their deal and NOT Allow the GD50th show's to be played away from the home DVR. Boo. Bad Comcast.

Can someone please post a message on whether, or not, parking passes have already been on sale for the Santa Clara shows, please? Thanks a ton.

I think the info will be in your ticket package once they are mailed out or an email will go out to ticket lottery holders. That is how it read to me anyway! Hope this helps!! I am waiting to hear also!! I have tickets for both SC shows!

Thank you. I've been going a little bonkers, thinking that I missed my window of opportunity, or something. I'm hesitant to drop $250 to StubHub and find they go on sale the next day.

Anyone who has Comcast and continues to mistakenly give them their money, should not be surprised by that policy.

Agreed about the happiness. I'm just getting the old VW Bus ready to make the trip from Seattle. I'd hate to drive all the way there and have to take a cab to the shows!

What I would like to know is if Comcast or any cable companies are going to offer the Chicago shows as a traditional pay-per-view on cable like the Mayheather fight.

I am looking at several ticket postings on Craigslist for the Chicago Shows and would like some advice about how to verify the authenticity of the tickets? Where can I find out what the communications for the hotel and ticket packages are supposed to look like? thank you in advance! Leslie

I was lucky to be selected for tickets to the June 28th show. I know the email said "Tickets will be shipped no later than 15 business days (approximately 3 weeks) before the event date; however they might be shipped earlier." Has anyone gotten theirs yet? I'm still waiting for mine to arrive. Just curious. Thanks! Scott

I was fortunate to get 2 for each night in Santa Clara and haven't received my Tickets yet either. I really didn't think they'd come until around the 1st of June. See you there Scott Annette

flevitan...I've been trying to get the attention of Dead accounts and Roku on Twitter ever since this was announced and still have not received an answer...and today is the last day to get the lowest prices. No response from them and the complete lack of full info on the webpage is really bad form by all concerned. After all, the webpage says "on any device." Just a bit vague, eh? The way it's written, one could assume they can be watched on a friggin' toaster. This lack of info and response is truly disheartening. I feel like, somewhere, Ruby is spinning in her final resting place.

I saw on that Levi stadium only allows "approved" clear plastic bags inside the stadium. I also saw GD 50th Clear plastic stadium bags for sale somewhere. Now of course I don't know where I saw them. I've googled them and still can't find them, anyone know where I can buy GD Clear plastic stadium bags? Annette
