I think I speak for all of us here @ dead.net: Our kindest thoughts and prayers (whatever your affiliation or lack thereof) go out to the victims and families of victims of the floods in the south Texas area and surrounded areas. May you find some peace in your loss and hope for a speedy recovery from this disaster... :-(

I wonder if the spinners will be in Chi-town or Santa Clara. Jerry always thought they were a little weird.

Thank you, Mr. K. I understand about not encouraging trolls by feeding them attention, which makes them stronger. Conversely, as in the physical world, ignoring jerks turns down their energy and often makes them go away *if* you haven't been insulting. Sometimes I have a problem with that :-) I wasn't apologizing for his sake, it was for my sake. I had been a jerk, and it's good to own that — maybe it can undo some of the insult. At the least, make it less likely to happen in the future. Man, I'm way up to see people I haven't seen in 20 years... Is it really you?... No way! God, remember that Merriweather show where it rained so hard the creek flooded, and Bob lost four sheets when the water came up over his pockets :-( How about those free balloons in the Laney College parking lot before the St. Patty's day show at HJK? The Greek show in '87 where they broke out "Watchtower", Jerry pushing the riff harder and harder until it just came apart in his face...Yow! Folks may be surprised at what Trey chooses to do, and not to do, with those pesky mandatory "iconic" Dead songs. I had barely heard of Trey Anastasio when he and Page McConnell sat in with Phil and friends at the first show Phil played after his liver transplant. My impression of Trey was, he had an uncommon ability that separates the jammers from the wankers: he knew how to listen. Yes, I'll be disappointed if they don't play Dark Star, Stella Blue, Box of Rain... It's a surprisingly long list, what did Weir send Trey, 66 songs? For me, it's about the songs as a structure for improvisation, and about the kind people, and the memories held within the music all these years like genies in a bottle...and saying "how do you do?" before we're left behind.

Was just listening to 1990-6-16 at Shoreline, and it made me wonder. Do you think we'll be hearing Brent songs? We Can Run would be nice. I Will Take You Home? Those songs seem to have died with Brent. Can anyone else pull them off?

"A limited amount of single-day tickets to all three #Dead50 shows at Soldier Field in Chicago will be released on Friday, June 5 at 12PM EDT. There will be a two ticket limit per show, and sales will occur on-line only." The above is at: www.dead50.net No changes on the Ticketmaster site as of 6/2/15 @ 2:30PM PDT. Good luck to those of us that still don't have Chicago tickets. As for everyone that does have Chicago tickets already, please be kind and stay away from Ticketmaster on Friday and let those of us without tickets get them. Thank You.

I agree with TCarr. If you have tickets, no need to ping Ticketmaster to see the ticket options. Let those who need tickets use the bandwidth. It will likely be a typical TM cluster when a large demand event goes on sale, so take a breath and good luck!

Just got an email informing me as a ticket holder I will have a passcode for purchase of parking each night. June 8 10am pt is when they will be offered via link from another email only to ticket holders. $60 per night.

Also received email for parking passes. Only ticket holders to shows will be allowed to park in lots. You must show parking pass and event tickets when parking. I sure hope all the good vendors have tickets!!??!! This will make it difficult for many I am sure!! Still very exciting to get more news and I am thinking this must mean tickets are in the mail????!!!!!

Gorgeous tickets in hand. Anyone heard about the stage set up? wondering if side/behind the stage will be the gems. Have sat behind stage for many GD shows and the monitors for the band had a sweet sound.

This whole thing has been pins and needles since day one. I am patiently, and anxiously, waiting for my mail order. I only ordered for one night, and put any. I have no idea which night I will get tickets for, so I might try TM, but i agree with others here who say if you have tickets, don't clog the system. I have yet to get the e-mail that zepthompson got. Oh please be in my mail box before TM sale on Friday, then i won't have to bother with that fiasco. Thank you Jerry

Trade only offer: 2 pair of Santa Clara Tix for both shows, if you want parking, I have to know by the 5th. These are lottery Tix, Sections 409, 411. What I need, in order. Dave's Picks 1, sealed, Winterland '77 Box, no Bonus disc needed, does not need to be new,Dave's Picks 4, sealed. Numbered CD's are preferable. I bring a bunch to the table. I have a sealed RT 2011 Bonus CD, Spring '77 Box, RT, Vol. 4 Complete. Here's the deal. The DP's are for my personal sealed archive. It's not about the money, unless it is to you. Yes, I could buy these. But, I have goods to trade if someone is interested. Know, I'd never look to make $$$ on the tickets.
