Some enterprising dead head should create a custom lanyard and holder to keep these incredibly beautiful tickets safe and sound. Put it up on ebay, I will buy one for sure.

What to the GDTS TOO tickets measure (length x width)?

so let me put some questions out there about the tickets that are being received. - what is the price point/type of ticket? - where all three nights requested or was it a partial order? - was priority mail used? - location (east coast, west coast, etc)? I am just trying to put some logic around why the higher numbers are getting tickets before a lower number. It does not matter either way. I am just more curious than anything else.

I plan on putting my ticket in my cell phone case behind the phone to keep it flat. Less chance of spilling anything on it or bending it inside a plastic sleeve.

my tickets were the cheapest got two for all three nights used priority mail to the east coast (same town as the postal cancellation on the ticket, actually)

Thanks Cumberlandcase. My initial thought is that maybe the ga tickets would go out first. They would be the easiest to print and mail, since seat numbers would not be an issue.

After spending many happy years (almost 50 yrs.) of being touring, dancing, etc.,etc. I followed all procedure and was shut out getting tix to the Ca. shows and Chicago 50th shows. I am losing the feeling of family that I enjoyed with all of the shows and parking lots. Back when we had camping my bus was there. My inside for tix when I had problems was through Calico and Bear (may they keep the fires burning till we are all together again..But this shut out has me not knowing what to do. What happened to our Deadhead Family......Philip Draper

there are tons of santa clara tickets still available for face or less right now- if you don't care where in the building you are. go to cash or trade. org (face value website). hell they are below face on stubhub right now. as far as chicago- be patient. more tickets are being released today via ticketmaster- 12pm est and there could be another re-re in a few weeks. tickets will become available for face. patience.

The tickets are gorgeous - just beautiful. I'm so grateful for my ticketbastard nosebleeds, but I admit. I'm a little jealous. Congratulations again, to everyone that won.

Mama Tried....but got shut out on the reboot of tickets. Anyone else have luck today with Ticketmaster? I am going to check my mail box now for my one (and only one) ticket, hoping it's there! I still don't know which show cause I said ANY on my index card.

Well, after dealing with the TM timer on all 3 days for Chicago, I have been shutout once again. I was shutout of everything for all 5 shows. Chicago is just not meant to be for me, so glad we got Santa Clara tickets through Stubhub. For everyone going to Chicago, enjoy the shows!!!

You know something, when I read the words good luck, or any good natured saying towards tickets, I can't help but think of how fucking cool the Grateful Dead (and of course the scene) truly was, and STILL FUCKING IS!! So what I didn't get tickets, people on this message board still wished me well. there are other bands, but let's face it, there are no other fans like Deadheads. I was at Jeff Beck the other night and saw a bunch of heads there. None of us knew each other, but we all hung out and talked about (all kinds of) music. Where oh where does that EVER happen? Long live the Grateful Dead....and all the Deadheads, even the casual fans!! One more month and it will be a memory. Long strange trip indeed.

I had one friend who needed a ticket to 7/3 (his only available day) and he scored and got in today. It is an upper level seat, but it has a view and he is in. So, there are some good luck stories. Sorry to those who did not succeed. The Gratefuldean blogger suspects there will be more ticket releases-- I tend to agree with him. Couldn't hurt to check out TM daily to see.

Yeah I struck out again for the fourth time. How many times do they need to get my hopes up only to have them shattered? Lol. Oh well. Guess I'll be seeing the Stones on the fourth and patiently wait for my box.

Are you actually telling everyone here that just got shutout, yet again, that you had Chicago tickets for all 3 days, but still found it necessary to go to Ticketmaster today and buy yet another ticket that you did not need, a ticket that a fellow Deadhead without tickets could have purchased? I'm sorry, but not the kind thing to do, or share about.

I have to say I am with TCarr on this one. Why try for tickets when you already have them? At a minimum why not offer your now extra ticket to someone here, rather than trying to be a hero in the parking lot.

Man someone asked if anyone scored. I didn't mean to be unkind. I miracle someone for all three nights as well already. I figured if I try for another one to get to a good head that's one less for a scalper was my thinking. I mean no disrespect to anyone, this music or community. Dig

So located where at? A friend got the 4th at top price tier today but furthest point away from stage, at least they are in. I am still waiting on mail order I lucked bkessed on, Those ended up being the top price tier too, which would have been originally seats left or right of stage or back half of floor. With changes to seating/floor from original mail order pricing and locations wondering where mail orders will end up?

Hi all, I haven't gotten any emails about mine for June 28th show being shipped yet. I've seen the link to see what the tix look like, but want to remain surprised. Anyone that has been blessed to have received theirs already - could you let me know the size of them? I just want to be sure that I have a lanyard sleeve that is large enough to fit it. Kind regards, Scott

Hey Scott. The pics of the tickets that you saw are the ones people are getting that mail ordered for the Chicago shows. My guess is that Santa Clara show tickets will not look like those. Hopefully they are still cool though.

The mail order for Chicago were 8.25 x 3.33 or so. Not sure if Santa Clara will be the same

I, like many others, have been waiting, and waiting. I, again like many others, received a confirming email on 2/26 telling me I was in. #320. So I just let it be - knowing that tickets wouldn't go out until June.It is now June and I see that people are getting their tickets. I am also seeing that others are getting emails telling them that their tickets were being printed. I have received neither. Today, June 5th, and asked if I am still getting tickets since it is now June and I haven't received anything since 2/26. [BTW my money orders were cashed.] I received a quick response telling me that they were only 30% through the ticketing process and to check back in 2 WEEKS! That would be the 19th - 2 weeks before the shows in Chicago! All I can think of now is what if they tell me to check back another time? I am leaving for Chicago on the 27th, if they aren't here by then I will be in a whole world of hurt. Question: I saw someone say they got their tickets and they had #320 - same number as I do. So what does those numbers actually mean?

I received 2 tix for each night in Chicago Sec 434 same seats for 2 nights, then one night in sec 431. did not know what to expect, but figured the lower cost seats were in the 300's and 400's.

My e-mail was 320, opted for priority mail, got my tickets on the 3rd. post mark was smudged. I did not get an e-mail about tickets being printed or shipped, think that is only santa clara. Ticket master, usually sends an email when they put them in the mail as well. My thought is you are going to get them soon.

Got two tickets for all 3 Chicago shows. Nose bleed seats and $40 checks for upgrades returned with the tickets. Ticket artwork is different for all 3 nights. Very cool! Where can we post pics? See you in Chicago!

Thanks for the heads up. Maybe it is just the Chicago attendees getting their tickets so far. I do hope they look good as well.

Sorry if this has been covered already, but does anyone know what the deal is with parking for the Santa Clara shows? I will be getting a ticket indirectly (not through GD ticketing), and a friend has a ticket. I heard something about pre-sale parking tickets on sale today (?). Is it necessary to buy parking ahead of time? How? Anyone from the area have knowledge or suggestions for alternatives to parking at the stadium? I know nothing about the area, etc. Thanks to anyone with answers...either via the board or PM!
