It seems odd that everyone I know who got tix is in the back of the stadium. I thought that they said they were saving the good tickets for mailorder people. Especially since they took my $200/ticket and then put me in the 200's section which was selling for less. I don't get it. Anyone know why?

Klangstone, come out and play; love the avatar. I would 100% agree with your conjecture but if you look at the following link, it shows by all three shows and then by zip code which cable companies are already offering Fare Thee Well now. It is pretty random at this point, but the rep at inDemand I spoke to told me that all cable branches will eventually be adding it. I won't feel comfortable about it until I see it on my TV though. We need a miracle! http://www.indemand.com/whats-on/events/

Ok. Who is on record for calling out Sunday 27th first song to start the Fare Thee Well? My original thought ( two months ago) was "Let the good times roll" but upon furthur thought and deep evaluation I'm feeling something authentically Dead. My call for first song first night is "Music Never Stopped". Good Bobby tune that has been done on Furthur tour often and was well played. Anyone?

“Tix in pocket, I’m special!” The long-awaited moment has arrived! Cheap ones for the 28th, mid 200s, and I got them for less then double face value — such a deal! Of course, emails advertising the availability of ample face value seats at Santa Clara arrived just a few hours before my tickets. And that’s without even cruising eBay. A bit of a buzz kill to know I could buy seats as good as mine right now for...oh, let’s not go there. As a famous poet once said (so famous I can’t remember his name): “What they say is true, there’s not much money in poetry. However, there’s not much poetry in money, either.” The sinister machinations of the ill-considered gonif the Dead hired to put these shows together (Uncle Bill? HELP!) may steal some of my money, but he won’t contaminate the joy I’m feeling on getting these very special tickets (regular TicketTron, but with a Fare Thee Well watermark and a strip of iridescent dancing bears — nice touch), but I’m pushing back and am certainly not going to let something as petty as greed for money diminish a unique, timeless celebration. As Jerry once said about Dead concerts, “there’s more going on here than meets the eye”. Opener: The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion) Closer: Brokedown Palace Wish list: If I Had the World to Give St. Stephen > Dark Star To Lay Me Down Cosmic Charlie So Many Roads > The Days Between Ripple OK, truckineric, I’ll call Sunday the 27th with 100% certainty: Dead silence. Sunday’s the 28th. ;-) Golden Road Saturday opener, yeah!

Only shows a couple of cable companies. Also, no Santa Clara available? Quite strange. I guess we'll see what happens in the next few days. Well, but, since everything has been so well handled for FTW as far as ticket distribution, fairness with seat locations, great views of the band for everyone and so forth, I am sure that the PPV process will be handled perfectly and without any issues... :-]

got my tickets for chicago. sure enough, the dead screwed us. none of the tickets that arrived were the sections that were advertised. I don't want a refund, I want the tickets that were advertised that I sent my money in for. I was specific on my envelope on what I was buying, per the instructions. I did not say "any" on the envelope, because I did not want crappy seats. it seems like the dead either decided to scalp tickets themselves, or they decided in an effort to screw the scalpers they would screw their most dedicated fans as well. or both. I can't believe that they let this false advertising / fraud happen. someone should have had the good sense to say this is wrong, and it is opening up major legal liability and bad publicity.

My guess is they are saving Bertha for 7/3. Just a gut feeling. This would be a good poll: How many and which songs will be repeated between SC and Chi? with Trey on board thinking not every song will be different for all 5 shows. Some "estimated" repeats (fan favorites of course): Sugar Mag truckin JackStraw Knockin' (but I hope not!) Row Jimmy Stella Blue Box of Rain Hell in a bucket ...to name a few

So happy to be having THESE conversations now!! Let the planning begin! I seem to hear Trey play Bertha quite often with Phil and Friends, Furthur etc...Also Truckin...I think those two will be staples in both venues! For the SC shows I am in Red lot 6 on Saturday and Green Lot 2 on Sunday. Green and Red lot 1 both appear to be not available for purchase? I read that in Chicago there will be an "organic"shakedown street as well as a "commercial corporate" shakedown street for ticket holders only with beer garden food etc...??!! Maybe these two lots in SC Green and Red 1 are the closest to the stadium and will be a similar set up? Any thoughts??

From the WSJ...http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2015/05/08/5-things-we-learned-about-the… Organizers have been wrestling with how to deal with the parking lot scene Promoter Peter Shapiro says they’re planning a mix of organic and “curated” models. A more familiar Dead-style scene, including tailgating and the free-form market known as Shakedown Street, will be allowed to take shape in the outer parking lot. But a series of check points will keep ticketless fans out of the main Soldier Field campus, where there will be organized amenities such as food and crafts vendors.

http://mlb.mlb.com/concert/dead50/ This is the link for the pay per view. It is online streaming and you can watch each show once anytime from the actual concert start time through August 7 (you have 24 hours to complete viewing a show from the time you start the show). You will need a good internet connection and you will have to watch it on your computing device (laptop, ipad) unless you have the capability of connecting that to your television. Hope that helps Bret!

It's California. Looking for an Estimated early on. It would be a great opener. Allow Trey to show his chops.

With so many people shut out of all 5 shows; those who got lucky on the mail order, let alone those who are going to all 3 nights or 5, the whining and complaining about anything to do with the tickets you received is ridiculous! You're going to the most coveted GD events in the last 20 years. damn spoiled kids...complaint department closed. I mean I get the point but shit your in the door, quit yer whining. 1. "Daddy I want a golden goose! And I want it NOW!" 2. "I won the lottery, but I want MORE money!" 3. "I asked Santa for a brand new bike! But he didn't get me the one I wanted."

My money's on Music Never Stopped for set 1 6/27 and set 2 7/5. Always a good opener, and a great way to get the ball rolling. But is that too easy of a choice for a band with only five shows left? Close second: Jack Straw or Box of Rain, although the latter would be a great set 1 closer.

I was told if you don't get your tickets within 2 days of the show you can call customer service and they'll set up Will Call.
