The band says Happy New Year with an announcement of almost twenty shows in April and May. More details to come!
They will give you a password to use to get tickets before they go on sale to the general public example .. If the password if Obama ... You would log onto Ticketmaster tommorrow and then insert the password where they ask for it and then purchase the tickets like you normally would..If you don't have a password it won't allow you to purchase tickets in advance
It will be real fun trying to wheel and deal tickets here at work where everyone and their mother can see my screen. I wish I could come in late tomorrow morning and just do everything from home. Oh well...guess it just adds to the excitement right?!?!?! Less than 24 hours to go!!!!
Thanks Dude, I assume I will receive a emailed password sometime before tomorrow?
Many ask about hoew to get tickets but there is nothing posted anywhere. What's the "Deal"
Someone over on the Philzone boards posted a link to a page that looks like it's set up for Musicnow to sell tickets tomorrow...
I already made them aware @ my office I will be in later tommorrow and all is kewl. I would rather do it @ home from the privacy of mu own computer since I will probably need to open several windows when setting up tommorrow
This is up on Ticket master ,says nothing about Presale ???The Dead Allstate Arena Rosemont, IL Tue, May 5, 2009 07:30 PM Onsale to General Public Start: Sat, 01/24/09 10:00 AM CST
I'm toying with coming late as well...I have the time so it wouldn't be a prob, the only thing is that my home computer tends to lag and freeze up...not all the time but it would be luck to freeze up in the middle of a transaction. But the more I think about it, the more I"d like to just do it and get it done without having to minimize all my screens and worry about getting caught. Good idea Brother!
All bosses should let everyone come in late tomorrow or, use one of your best excuses of why you will be late or absent. I mean come on, this is a priority. Then, make sure you have all your excuses ready for the shows too. May the four winds blow you safely home. "Oh if a man tried To take his time on earth And prove before he died What one man's life could be worth I wonder what would happen To this world."
I sure am glad my boss is cool with my concert madness. I'll be right here at work waiting for the clock to strike zero.
If they play "Terrapin Station" then all the time and money spent getting to the show will not even compare to the memmories
So hopefully I'll e at home, sitting at my computer, credit card out and ready with a smile on my face!!
Excellent choice...I should of taken today off also..I can't keep away from this site and I honestly can't wait until it is all said and done tommorrow and I know for sure if I get seats..There is alot of traffic on the forums which tells me even though not posting alot of people are getting tickets..Looking at other threads it doesn't seem as though there is alot of traffic on these forums but hopefully that will all change and people can state connected throughout the tour

I'm with you critter. I have my credit card number memorized and I am ready to watch it melt!!! Good times shall be had by all!
GDTS too will accept mail order starting "postmarked" tom. and ending the 20th. No credit card orders this time for this tour, prices are posted there as well, is worth looking at. I'm gonna see what this presale stuff is all about here but will stick with ol faithful mailorder.
I haven't received it yet, just wondering if anyone else has... peace.
Wonder if they'll post the password or just email? I am better of being at work cause my home computer is very slooowww. plus it will be lunch time here in the east.
We should all just do mail order and leave ticketbastard scratching their heads. (i know its not possible but would be nice.) I guess I like knowing that my money is going directly to the dead, and not some bully. See you at the show! (was going to be more, now just one. but what a one it will be!!) :) Have Love and Keep It - Patrick
I believe they will e-mail us a password but in order to be safe I will also keep this forum open and also refresh that since I am sure as soon as it is made available someone will post it here
Mail order only let me down once, in 93, and that was my fault. I remember that hey had the best customer service around :)
what is the deal with the presale? is it thru Ticketmaster? because I called them today and they had no clue. Can some one help???
forum members of dead. net with the highest post counts get the first choice and best seats. ( -; yuk yuk yuk...
what is the story with presale i dont no if im registered or have to be there isnt any real info on the details anywhere could use some input first time user long time fan just figured out the google switch on the internet machine ;-) makes me miss mail order
I saw a website which says it ia already selling tix to shows. It looks like you can already buy them. See: http://www.tickets.org/ResultsEvent.aspx?event=The+Dead&pid=18821What's up wit dat?
Those are scapler tickets - overpriced for what you get,
You never know what you'll get and considering tickets aren't even on sale yet...something sounds way shady!
I know they're scalpers, but how can they sell tix that aren't even on sale to Deadheads yet? If you go there, you can actually select sections and rows and buy the tix. I tried (just for the heck of it) to see if I could buy tix for the Mountain View show and it let me go all the way to checkout. Weird. I will certainly wait until tomorrow! See you there.
The only downside to mail order is the interminable wait to find out if you got tickets and where they are (and for those in groups >4, the uncertainty about proximity to friends). Beyond that, mail order is reliable, peaceful, appealingly low-tech (to me, anyway), and perhaps more likely to result in good seats, in that fellow deadheads are processing your order rather than an impersonal piece of software that techheads undoubtedly understand WAY better than I do. Frankly, I'm skeptical that there will be an on-line pre-sale, but like many others here, I'm registered and will be prepared to do the 'plastic thang' if it looks reasonable. Otherwise, I'm confident that GDTS will get their share of the pile and have good tickets to dispense. Sure wish Ruby hadn't retired, though...she'd always took good care of us, particularly if we took a little time to decorate the envelopes a bit. In any case, gang, try not to let the prices ruin the moment. I know money's tight for most, but if $100 is too much yet $50 is okay, doncha think you'll find a way to make up the difference...somehow? Eating regularly is overrated, anyway ;-) ```````````````````````````````````````````````````````````` One man gathers what another man spills...
What you're seeing is the result of a sale strategy that almost all venues subscribe to. Essentially, a ticket agent purchases a block of tickets to ever event, guaranteeing the venue that it will move those seats, no matter what. The ticket agent is therefore able to offer those specific seats to any given event prior to the tickets actually going on sale. "When it comes to humility, I'm the greatest!" - Bullwinkle Moose
Aha! That makes a lot of sense. So, I'm guessing then that the seats you see listed on these scalper sites will not be made available to Dead fans when they go on sale tomorrow. Jeez, these guys run the world, don't they? Hoping I don't 'need a miracle' tomorrow. Aloha.
Does anyone have an idea how much these Chicago presale tickets will cost with all charges? Thanks!
What time (EASTERN) does the internet sale start???
Does anyone know if there will be camping allowed at MSG? Will it be inside or outside the garden???
Right now the only show listed with ticketmaster isTue, 05/05/09 07:30 PM Allstate Arena Rosemont, IL The Dead More Info » on sale: to general public ...Sat, 01/24/09 10:00 AM and does not mention anything about presales????
104 Users and 512 guests online right now !!!!! methinks tickets will go fast.. I joined the Rolling Stones fan so I could get the presale password for there last tour...I got on ASAP and still wound up in the nose bleeds..I asked there ticket rep if there was really anything left for when they went on sale to the public and he laughed and basically said no.We should all be thankful that they didn't make us pay to join the fan club in order to get the presale password.. Alot of bands do that to make aditional money
I believe it is 11am EST...at least for the Allstate show
Duh camping in NYC is not a option. its a great way to meet the NYPD, same for Central Park- a big NO NO, unless you want to see Riker's Island. Peace out
Is camping available at Riker's ??
does anyone know when we will get presale passwords or info or did i miss this?
Riker's is the jail in NYC. "When it comes to humility, I'm the greatest!" - Bullwinkle Moose
If you order  tickets thru Mail Order, will they be next to each other, or split up? Thanks
DarkStar77 - I think you may be correct. I saw a post earlier in this forum that said it would be 9:00 WEST COAST, which if you're in central makes you 11 am, and me on the least coast at NOON. Gotta say here that I almost dropped my guitar when I saw the prices. Was going to take my 20 yr old son to L.I., MSG, IZODS, and the Spectrums (I'm 25 miles south), but I may have to drop off Nassau and MSG.
Gdogs164 - they will be together, unless you request otherwise.
someone please tell me how to purchase tix??? the only thing i've been able to figure out from this site is they go on sale at noon where i am. i signed up for "ticket alert" but have gotten no notifications. are they going to wait until the very last min. to tell us what to do when 12 rolls around? i plan to purchase 2 tickets each for 3 different shows. anyone know how that will work?help!
...throw me in the jailhouse...until the sun don't shine
It's so cool! I love it...132 people...good times! It's getting closer - woohoo!
http://www.gdtstoo.com/GDTSTOOTheDeadSpring09.html they seem awfully high. i know they can charge what they want, but having a few more tickets in the $40-$50 range would have been nice.
Are you kidding?ADDITIONAL MONEY?These prices make them just like every other tired old no longer original membered band that overcharges for the tickets to their shows!$99 for a ticket to the Spectrum?When the schedule came out we were going to go to like 5 shows at least(just like in the past) but with these prices that would be $500/person.How can anyone afford to do multiple shows? For the price of 2 shows we could almost buy Bonnaroo or Rothbury tix and see SO many bands(and the Dead may even be there too)We have just decided to skip this money grab and be happy with the Great Memories of tours past. - Weav
Hey guys and girls, This is my first post so I hope its not a dumb question, but I was wondering if anyone knows of any possibility of another Dead tour, maybe even a continuation of this one during the summer. I want to buy tickets but the two days they're in my area (PA) I have my finals so I can't make the shows in good conscience. Any news at all, even some unsubstantiated rumors would make me feel a little better, haha. Thanks.
