Shut out again. Tried for one ticket, any price, wait time was 12 minutes, got nothing. The repeat searches took only seconds to tell me there was nothing available. Looks like the scalpers are going to win, at least with me. I held onto my airline and hotel reservations and there's no way I'll travel all the way there with nothing in hand.

The SC parking passes will go onsale at 10am pt on monday the 8th. If you havent yet, download the levis stadium app. You can see a map of the lots and which ones allow what...ie. Barbecuing and tailgating. Even though the app is where you would usually purchase parking passes for events there, they will only be available through ticketmaster at $60 bucks each day! Ouch! Those that won the chance to purchase tickets through the online lottery have, been sent an email with this info. The email also says that if you bought a ticket through the online lottery, you will receive an email by 9am pt monday morning with a unique code allowing you to purchase one parking pass for each day. So at 10am pt there will be an exclusive on sale through ticketmaster. As far as a public, perhaps that will either be available later in the day, or maybe from the levi stadium app. I have not found info on a public sale. I suggest the levis stadium app, so you know ahead of time which parking lot you hope to get a pass for. ( check the map for what lot allows what). Its also kind of cool, in that you can enter your seat numbers into the app, and make orders for beer or food during the concert, and they will deliver it to you at your seat, as well as order from the merch booth, if im understanding it correctly. If your on the field, I believe they even have a gps function, in order to find you. Crazy! I guess thats what you get with a new 1.3 billion dollar stadium!!! Good luck!!! The kids, they dance and shake their bones!!!

I find it slightly odd that there is a second release after all of the tickets were allegedly given through a lottery. Really wish I'd known id have a second opportunity before I bought inflated tickets off StubHub…

Anyone still looking for tickets to any shows...checkout cashortrade.org awesome ticket site where you can only sell for face or trade. People are selling tix to SC for less than face. And tix for chicago, if you catch a posting at the right time are being sold and traded left and right. You can join their gold club and get access to posts ten minutes before it goes live on the site. Check it out. Very easy to use, and convenient. Time is right for hangin' out, and dancin' in the streets!

There are posts starting to surface that seem to indicate that the tickets you are about to receive may not meet your expectations. Those who paid the top price point are receiving tickets in the 300's and those that paid for GA Pit are being sent to the 400's. I would guess this will not happened to everyone, but it is disturbing that it is happening at all. Please post what you paid and where you ended up http://gratefuldean.com/mail-order-pricing-switcharoo-turns-shapiro-fro…

Hey now, I am happy to say that my ticket location/price stayed the same throughout and I ended up getting my extra money order back for any price difference. as in the past (I haven't bothered to do mail order since Jerry died) I filled out the index card with the word ANY and put money orders in for both pricing ranges (Or three if there were three) The only time I was ever (personally) shut out of mail order was the '89 NYE show, but I got tickets to the three previous shows and had a blast anyway. I have been mail ordering since the early '80's and any shows prior to that, I didn't need to mail order because TicketMaster (Or TicketTron for those old enough to remember) allowed you to camp overnight for tickets. What I paid is what I got, and though they are nose bleeds, I don't care and I am thrilled I got tickets. It is horrible if mistakes were made and people are getting different price points. I read the link below and wonder if Phil, Billy, Bobby and Mickey even know or care if this is happening (It didn't happen to me, so I am not sure if the link is even true....but ya never know) I wish those without tickets good luck if you are still planing to attend any or all shows. I want a good memory to take away from nearly 16 years of touring from '79-'95 and I am hoping that I will get that memory. It's good to be important, but it is more important to be good. Bongs not bombs.

I don't get the impression the article was satire. The other posts on the blog seem be legit. If you look at the first two seating charts that came out, which are within the article, the seats are color coded based on cost. I based my order on that information and only included one set of money orders for that price point. I am not going to be really happy to find out I am sitting in seats that were originally noted as $79 vs. the seats I thought I was paying for at $199. Even tbonebozzone mentioned he thought the $79 seats he received were in 434. Those seats per the original charts were $59. I am sure there are some on these boards that will tell me I am lucky to even have tickets, I should not complain, or even say I am espousing some sort of self entitlement BS. I am happy to still be going, but I don't appreciate people changing the rules after the game has begun. It just shows a lack of respect for the fans. Let me make it clear that I am pointing the finger at the promoter and not the band. I will post my info as soon as the tickets arrive. Maybe I will be pleasantly surprised.

I rec'd my tickets via mail order, I paid for the $79 tickets, and they in Section 432 and 428 all three nights. Not sure where they were on any original seating charts. I am just happy to have rec'd tickets.

Oh, I don't doubt the story, and I never thought of it as satire. @ Jayclark, I also got section 428, and if you look at (Seatgeek) detailed maps/seating charts, I am within the original price range as row 11 is actually the 4th row of that particular section. I have seen a few Bears games as well as a concert at Soldier Field since the remodel. Honestly, it is a decent, albeit sports arena, place to see a show. i am looking forward to seeing young and old, newbies and oldsters (Of which I am one) and enjoy the brethren of what Dead shows meant to me.

Chicago. First show was an Uptown show in '79.Saw every GD Soldier Field show, pretty much every Chicago area GD show from '79-'95 plus a ton of touring from '81-'95. The Dead have a special place in my heart on so many levels, but I think the fans, even the casual ones, were what brought me to shows.....and of course Jerry.

I was at those shows, too. Grate place to see a show, but what a b*tch to get in and out of that parking lot. And then, there's that big bunch of people that got busted, I forget which year. Didn't Jerry arrive in a helicopter? I was at the very first Poplar Creek show. John Denver, if I recall. It was a hoot! The toney folks in that neighborhood never liked that venue, and it didn't last long. Funny that there is another concert venue at that site, now. Never been there.

Does anyone know.. If I received a confirmation email from GDTSTOO that I scored tickets will my seats be in the Section equal to the three digit number in the title of the GDTSTOO email? For example if the email contained the number 428 in the subject line will my seats be in 428? Thanks

The article from the Washington Post has some quotes from Shapiro trying to explain the changes in the ticket prices and locations. Shapiro basically indicated that GDTS did not have tickets in certain price ranges, so he had to shift prices. He is already setting up his defense by saying that GDTS made the seating chart obsolete by offering tickets in a price range they could not fulfill. My head hurts from even trying to make sense of the whole thing. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/style-blog/wp/2015/06/08/suspicious…

Tickets are returned to you by the method you selected. If you did not pay the extra fee for a FedEx return then I assume they are simply mailed in your SASE. I was just wondering if anyone who paid the FedEx fee has gotten their tickets yet. thanx, connie

Feeling very grateful but still have not received my tickets to the the shows!! Hopefully this week!!

Wow anyone enjoy that price plus fees of 78.25 per pass. So another 36.50 on top of the 120 bucks to PARK! 156.50 to park your car!!!! Heres an unused code:276808. Use at your discretion i did not see anything that connected the code to my account with TM, it just guaranteed me access. I used the one from the tickets my girl ordered. This one is not used. Hope it helps someone. Though, im wondering if parking at the airport, like someone posted a week ago or so, might not be a better idea. Park in long term and take a taxi. Im sure it will cost much less than 78.25 per day. Highway (parking lot) robbery!!! Peace and good luck to all!

Has anyone gotten any real good seats from GDTS? Like the original $200 tickets from the original seating chart? Assuming they took all those and gave them to the CID VIP packages. Anxiously awaiting receiving my tickets in Texas.

Got my chicago tix!!! 2 in the pit for sat, 3 in the pit for sunday.!did the mail-order 95.50 for each ticket plus the upgrade 20 dollars for the pit. I checked my moneyorders right after I got the notice from GDTS and knew they were ALL cashed which meant I was in the pit. Understand some people are upset (but you at least you are in) Did you ever check your money orders? If the 20 dollar ones had not been cashed I would have been expecting seats in the 3 or 400's I checked them because we got shut out of friday and some of us were shut out both sat and sun (still are for sat) and I wanted to know exactly what I had. wasn't 100 percent sure what days but knew i was in pit. all this said I am very lucky. been mail ordering since GDTS started but this was pure luck I think. Best to all my deadhead brothers and sisters. we will go to NRPS friday night unless face value fir day;s come down. see in you all in Chicago!

Has anyone heard of people who were selected for SC tix not getting the emails for parking passes? A good buddy of mine got tix for both days in SC and did not receive the emails that I and others did about parking passes? Obviously he is freaking out!!! Thanks!

No posting of DirecTV package or PPV of the final shows yet. An online ad for computer screening package -- which appears to be from mlb.com -- says DirecTV should be on sale by June 1. Anyone have any info? Will the shows be on audio on Dead Channel (23) on SiriusXM?

I checked my money orders over the phone in late Feb and found out they were no longer in the system which meant they had been cashed. I was told that the online process to check them was unreliable.I may be wrong on this but I was also told that after 90 days the money orders are purged from the system so you have no way to check. Maybe if you went to the Post Office? Good luck! Jeff

Really hard to interpret what the actual seating & standing areas designated for the new Chicago Soldier Field chart. And, what was previously shown & sold as behind the stage, side stage & obstructed view is now shaded as "UNAVAILABLE". So, there are definitely reserved seats which I believe fall entirely into "club" suites & 100 level closest to the field. These, especially close to the stage must have been designated for sale with the CID Experience & Travel VIP Packages? But, is the entire 300 & 400 level seats now general admission with first come first served? All of these except very top in the back are $200 each? And,any idea how many people on the field / floor? What is the capacity of the GA Pit? I tried to estimate from a Soldier Field concert with chairs & believe between 2500 to 3000. Total number of people attending each day is over $60k! Thanks.......
