No SC tickets in the mail today!! Kids got good report cards though!! Happy Day!!I saw a post on GD50 facebook page... stating SC tickets will be mailed out two weeks before shows? Completely different process from Chicago. The post also stated that the person spoke with TM and they said June 15th? Not leaving much time for travelers!!!

Back on June 8, bobby posted that SC tics had been received. He described what they looked like too. June 9 bobby stated he lives in New York. I'm thinking East coast was mailed out first.

So I still haven't received my tickets as of today's mail. I did regular USPS SASE and I received the e-mail back in February group #99 (not that the number necessarily means anything) as confirmation. Anyone else still waiting anxiously? I'm in Maryland and trying not to freak out about what to do if they were lost/stolen...

Tickets for SC have been delivered all over the country. There are people from both coasts and in between with listings on ebay, showing there actual TM hard tickets. So we should all be getting them any day now. What i want to know is when are TM chicago tix going to be sent out. They originally said the middle of june. I called customer service a month ago and the guy told me he expected tix to go out the first week of june, but that obviously is not the case, or i would have got mine by now. Paid for the 2-3 day delivery, so as not to mess up travel plans. Good luck to you all. And if anybody gets chicago tix, or hears anything about the TM chicago tix, please post if you get them and where you live.His job is to shed light, not to master. Peace

A friend of mine that lives about 10 miles from me got her SC tics today. I did not. I live in the Sacramento area. Stress not scottfry, they will arrive for you and for me. My guess is that you will get them by tues or wed of next week. There is still many mail days before you board that plane. Other than TM I don't know of any other source for tic info. All good things in all good time.

I am giving 1 Miracle to the July 5 show in honor of my former spouse, Nelson Cessna who is battling end stage liver disease. I was set to go and his health declined. I will not be going and want the ticket to go for the good. Some friends and I just put up a website to give Nelson virtual hugs, raise awareness about liver disease and organ donation and to fund raise to help cover medical expenses. There are instructions on this site for putting your finger in the air virtually for this miracle. There is absolutely no obligation other than to send an email to the address listed on the site. I am hoping if we give a miracle we will get one for Nelson! I will put everyone's name and email into a hat and choose the deserving winner on or about June 18. https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/yn09/supporting-nelson-cessna

I am unable to go to the Chicago shows and would like to use my prepaid hotel room for July 3, 4 and 5 at the Trump Towers to help raise money for medical bills for Nelson Cessna, who is battling end stage liver disease. Some friends and I just put up a website to give Nelson virtual hugs, raise awareness about liver disease and organ donation and to fund raise to help cover medical expenses. You can visit the link below or email me at amiraclefornelson@gmailcom. https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/yn09/supporting-nelson-cessna The room is worth over 2K and I will be happy if I can get what I paid which is 1150.00 with taxes and fees. Please note, you will need a valid ID and a credit card to check in. Thanks for helping and enjoy the show!

I started going to shows in the late 80's. One of the songs back then that everybody was hoping to be lucky enough to witness was St. Stephen. They didn't end up playing it again while Jerry was at the helm but I was always hopeful. I found out later they sound checked it at a couple shows I attended but it was a no show come showtime. I know it's been done over the years since but still I have not been fortunate to catch it. So with great love and hopefull energy I am praying to be blessed in Santa Clara with hearing, feeling, experiencing and enjoying my first and only St. Stephen. I love that song. If not no worries. I still love Grateful Dead!! All good things in all good time.⚡️

Eric, that is a fantastic story. I am in the same exact boat. I always hoped to hear St. Stephen from '82 onwards, but it never happened. Ever. It almost became absurd, as I would read the setlists of prior shows during the Dead reunions (oh yeah, they are playing it!) but they never played it when I went. When no tickets materialized to Chicago, I figured it was just one of those things. Then I committed to Chitown, then Santa Clara, scored some miracles, and lo and behold, I am also going and am optimistic. If it gets played in SC, I'll know someone else has the wry smile and sigh of relief and thankfulness that I do.

I also love St. Stephen, I was also lucky to get a St. Stephen often in the 70's. I'm a Plumbing Contractor and on my truck is "one man gathers what another man spills" St. Stephen. I'm asked what does the quote means. So I'm able to proudly explain being a deadhead. Still waiting for fed-ex.

Contacted my cable TV company (CCI) and they know nothing about a concert simulcast. Fair the where? Grateful Who? Simulwhat? Anyone contact Dish, Direct and/or Crapcast yet? The guy from CCI said check back the week before. But that doesn't make sense to wait until the last minute, this would hurt sales of the event. Have to assume it will not be available at least though my cable company (but I will check back just in case). :-(

Don't worry Klang. If you don't receive the PPV requested or are charged more by the Cable provider than originally advertised, you can request a partial refund from Shapiro if you are not satisfied with the shows. Okay, that's total b.s., I know nothing about the PPV. I might not listen to SC at all until after Chicago. You know, a little Grateful Dead fast before the shows. That will be difficult though, like not eating a slice with the steaming box open on the table in front of you.

Hopefully that's a sign that my SC tickets will be in my Boise mail box when I get home today.

Hey Klang - I'm a DirecTV guy and nothin' on there yet or their website (that I could see). One would have to think if they are offering a PPV route, the news has to be hitting soon in order to promote it.

My understanding its webcast through mlb.com....and likely on an mlb cable/satellite channel...that's how I ordered it.....

Hehe, I knew it was BS as soon as I read the word "partial". I'm not worried, but others have asked about a cable simulcast so I was trying to get answers. Cue in Alan Parsons: There are no answers only questions...

To my knowledge, no bars are showing it - unless they can broadcast a stream w/ audio - or until DirecTV announces a PPV. But then like the NFL Sunday Ticket, there are licensing issues...who knows?? There is a movie theatre option, but I find completely useless.

I have contacted my cable provider, Comcast, twice in the past couple weeks. Customer service had next to no information except that Comcast often adds next month's PPV on the 15th of the month (so 6/15 perhaps?). As someone who is totally relying on the cable PPV feed, I would feel much better about having this ordered so I can make concrete plans. Not to be overly critical, but it does seem that cable companies may be in the dark so that there will be additional webcast streaming sales instead. I would hope that anyone and everyone counting on cable/sat PPV will contact their providers ASAP. The more this becomes a visible issue sooner, the better.

contacted Directv via phone - they also had no idea about the PPV announcement. Said to try back about a week before showing and to read their news articles online for announcements. Needed better plans than that. Ordered up Streaming - Hoping for best - the process of ordering was kinda shaddy. Got the projector and side of barn ready-yippee! Still waiting for CHI tix to arrive. Wishing everyone the best. See you soon.

One thing for sure, a ticket to SC now is going to be far cheaper than any PPV. I can see the lot now: 2 for 1, then 3 for 1, and then trades for grilled cheese sandwiches. I can't believe the flood of tickets out there for SC. Why all the extras?

SC tickets GA on the floor still available for both nights right now on ticketmaster. Pissed. Looks like if you got shut out of everything up until these last two re-releases, you were destined to get the best tix available besides the pit tix. Though, i think id rather have a seat, but im sure there are great seats left as well. Genius strategy to give everyone a hard-on for buying shit seats, way back with the first public onsale. Sell out all the super shitty seats, and as time goes by, release the best last! Pretty smart! Though, not at all very kind!!!! Peace y'all!
