The band says Happy New Year with an announcement of almost twenty shows in April and May. More details to come!
So the cheaper seats are all behind the stage with obstructed views and if I pay $100+ I will either get seats in the front row or in the nosebleeds of the 300 sections. This has to be the most ridiculous ticket arrangement I have ever heard. Shame on everyone involved that it has come to this.
Just had to lol when I read that. Rikers Island ha ha fucking priceless. I'd start taking a little less of the candy, man. If you get confused, listen to the music play. "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 was listening to the encore of Tales from the Golden Road (sirius) and heard that the Boys wanted to get out and get a feel for things and see how this mini tour goes - then take from there. Maybe if it goes good, they'll do another run next year or something. I think there may be old posts from a couple days ago as well that might shed some light on the possibility. If I remember correctly I think someone said there may be some info over on Phil's website? Not 100% positive as my short term memory is no where near as good as it used to be. Browse through this thread and see what you can find.
It looks like getting tix tomorrow for presale should be a snap....lots of you say: "too much!" while many more seem helpless on the internets....fascinating I have confidence in my ability to get thru some complex captcha faster than 98% of the people posting! ;-)
Thanks for the laugh! I needed that. Camping at MSG would most certainly be a "trip." And Rikers would probably be on the itinerary. Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
a trusted friend just told me that mail order is the only way to get presale tix. then why is there a countdown clock to 12 noon tomorrow on this site?
I just saw new info on VIP packages posted on the tour page....but when i reloaded it was gone. Denver was VIP Gold Room package $475 Sec BBB, Mile High sec AAA, BBB, CCC or 102+ for $350
Yo Johnny Rocks and Mr. Pid.....at least somebody is laughing on this board! Remember Jerry's key operative word....FUN
and all online sales were starting at noon EST nelliegirl - definitely online presale going on here
and that is why ticket prices are so high. the dead will get their money up front (good for them), but i hope live nation eats it when the venues are only 1/2 full!!!
GROUP HUG.....AAAAAAHHHHHH.....NOW EVERYONE RELAX if you plant ice you will harvest wind
I have been searching different sites for ticket info and Ticket Master seems to be the only one posting info for venues... I would think that if they have the venues listed that unfortanatly they will be handling the ticket sales... Questions I had prior to the presale are becoming clearer.. We will most likely get password right before the tickets go on sale The tickets becoming available 9am West Coast time Tickets will range from 50-100 dollars a ticket not including Ticket service charge I am thinking Ticketmaster got the gig My game plan tommorrow is to open 4 windows on the computer prior to the sale I suggest refreshing all these until you have your ticket info 1 open e-mail (Keep refreshing for notification from this site on a password 2 open Ticketmaster and have it ready for purchase 3 Open this site and keep it on the page with presale and ticket info...Keep refreshing so you don't miss it 4 Open this forum and keep refreshing since if someone gets aditional info or the password chances are they will post it here... Good Luck to everyone here and may we all get in
-wondering how long it takes for them to let you know you are one of the lucky ones getting tickets. -do you think that they will let you know b-4 tix go onsale thru ticketbastard? -i've been trying to call gdts too cust. svc # all day....busy busy busy! (tried over 100x!) someone please HELP!! thanks!
$100 a seat? Fifty is fair, Seventy five is pushing it but one hundred bucks? Give me a break, nice way to stick it to the fans. I don't care who is handling the sales and what the excuses are, that's just lame. Doesn't sound like the Grateful Dead I once knew, pretty sad indeed.
I was going to do albany, 1 Woooooster and msg....just like old times.... thinking 50 a ticket would come to about 200 with all charges ...now with 100 a tix that will not happen, i might but it will be hard to get the group back together to do this. Allmans, phish, the rooo.....lots of shows and the economy and the price of this tour just put a bad vibe in my body.
All the years combine They melt into a dream...... $100 for 1 ticket - I remember paying $50 for a scalper's ticket at the Meadowlands in 1984. Thought I'd never pay more than that. It all rolls into one and nothing comes for free I'm going to at least 1 show. Doing the mail order thing just like I always have. It's hit or miss on the seating but at least I'll be there. Dust off those rusty strings just one more time, Gonna make them shine, shine Good Luck with the tickets Y'all!
What the deal with setting up an account I've had a account on Dead.net for years.I tried to get a account but it won't let me. WTF
Pricing works on a few levels--keeps demand low, prevents touring, makes the band more money, etc. And it does continue the excellent work that the Eagles started years ago. Settle for the economy model with vinyl seats in the back or the luxury option with the telescopic leather seating that allows you to make out details on the stage.
I just went and reregistered and updated all my info with Ticket-Bastard just in case they are the sellers for this show..I would suggest others to possibly set this up in advance since it will store all your info and make the purchasing smoother & faster..This way if you open up Ticketmaster prior to sales as soon as you get the passwoord just enter it and click
thanks rowdy. i just finished reading thru some older posts on here and i'm just going to trust that i will get a password tomorrow and will be able to 'try' to get some tix online and am not going to prep. for mail order tonite. all the secrecy is frustrating.and thanks chawks for the suggestion on the best way to get tix online. good luck everyone! see here how everything leads up to this day...
----> I'm wondering if they get back to you in time to purchase tickets thru ticketbastard if you are not lucky enough to get mail order. ----> I've been trying to get a hold of GDTS TOO all day today, prob called over 100x BUSY>>>BUSY>>>BUSY! can someone shed some light?
should I do mail order or do the presale on line? gail
Since no more mail is going out tonight in the majority of the country and presale is tommorrow I would try the presale...If it doesn't work you can send the mailorder tommorrow since you should know rather quickly if you have tickets
Can't mail order until tomorrow anyway. Have it all set to go, try the pre-sale, if you do not get tix, send off the mail order. Good luck.
Can you use personal checks for mail order...I have been so spoiled by the internet I think I may have forgotten how to even mail a letter
only usps money orders or western union mo's
I knew right away she was not like other girls Other girls
I'm hoping for the best, good luck to everyone.
Save your money, go see Phish and a DSO show for what it costs to see "THE DEAD".
The Wilkes - Barre show runs from 70 to 100 bones, save your money and go see the boys. If we knew when Jerry's last show was the demand would be crazy for tix. So get out re-live the good life while we can. " Goes to show you don't ever know what the cards hold"
anyone wondering about pre sale should register herehttp://www.deadtickets.rlc.net/TheDead/calendar.aspx
I was able to set my account, but there was no access code provided as described in the FAQ. The explaination about setting up an accout is poor! I signed up for pre-sale notification and have received no e-mails about the pre-sale. Very bad execution of the pre-sale ticket notification (plus free goodies)! As it stand now, this whole pre-sale through Ticket-Master or what ever it ends being is flawed because if you follow the advice to set up an account before hand, you are not provided the required information (i.e., access code) required to purchase ticket. There should have been better information provided and sooner.
We've learned from the ticket vendor that you must create an account to place an order. You may want to set up an account before presale begins. This is no an email newsletter sign-up this is a ticket sign up. Account applies to all ticketing, including VIP! http://www.deadtickets.rlc.net/TheDead/calendar.aspx
He knows not of what he speaks. If you have money, buy tickets. Period. Poor saps like myself will have to resort to old tactics and get by and the "doctor" can have fun with his Minor League bands. Long Live The Dead!! Calico Kaliope come tell me the news!
Mine came a couple posts later. :)
green ripple - you are not alone...noone has any codes yet, all you get is an account for readiness. i assume we will all get a mass email tomorrow morning or tonight for purchase online at 9pst/10mst/11cst/12est
does any one know at what age do they charge children
actually green ripple and you guys are right...the FAQ is misleading and says "Important: Write down the username and password you received with your Access Code and put it in a safe place. You will need your Username, Password, and Access Code to buy tickets." I think this applies to people activating an account after the presale begins, so they will get an access code immediately. I'm sticking with the theory that we should all get an email or message with access codes tonight or first thing tomorrow....
All I was suggesting was getting an acount set up through Ticketbastard in advance since I think they may be doing the ticket sales...Noone has a password yet but it is a good idea to sign up with them and have your info for the transaction already provided ahead of time.Tommorrow open up a window for Ticket-Bastard in advance under the new account you opened... Also make sure to be in the area of the venue you are getting tickets for... As sson as we get our password tommorrow go over to the site and follow the direction...It will list the date 1-23 that they go on sale to the public and will also list the date which will be tommorrow for the presale...They are holding off til the last minute because if we already had the password with todays technology all the scalper and brokers would clean house on scooping them up...There are a ton of visitors on the forum and I can guarantee alot are people looking to make a quick buck of us
I certainly hope so...I think this will just lead to more Heads in the Lot than in the show...which means more of the problems that come along with this...Gatecrashers, Cops, etc...etc..etc. Kind of a bummer... :(
am signed up... no access c ode yet. is it written how many tix per pre sale on line tomorrow ? GDTS is 4.
It appears that a lot of effort was put into VIP ticket packages but zero was put into the logistics of actually selling tickets. It bet most of these VIP tickets don't sell in the presale and are eventually released as regular tickets.
The overwhelming bad vibes are flowing. The calamity ensues. Overpriced tix abound. Save your hard-earned scratch and go to a summer festival. Go See three Bands, Rat Dog, Phil and friend, and Gov't Mule all for the same price.
how many tickets can you purchase per on line/ pre order tomorrow ? thnx MC
how many tickets can you purchase per on line/ pre order tomorrow ? thnx MC
double post... I'm a tool.
I dont care how much it costs, money comes and goes, but the memory of a FANTASTIC show lives with you FOREVER.
