I'm taking my mother with me this weekend in mind and spirit. She was looking forward to going a couple months back but unfortunately she is now fighting some serious health issues. She's not only bummed about that but she is really bummed she can't be in Santa Clara. Brother coming into town to take over while I'm at the shows and he is gonna try to dial them in on his smartphone so she can have a peek. Love all ya' all and mom too. Be safe this weekend. Dance and enjoy. And remember these may be "warm up" shows but sometimes magic happens while your loose and warming up. Magic happens when not expecting. Magic happens inside each of us and sometimes on our own terms.

My husband and I are debating to buy (2) 3 day passes w no view for soldier field-today or tom from stub hub. My question is they will be sent through UPS right? and prob be cutting it very close does anyone have any experience w this and know if the date listed will be the day they arrive or not worth the risk. If not Im honestly prob going to show up and scalp. I don't want to miss this magical event.

Is guranteed you will get your tix on time or will substitute at the venue of a mishap occurs. I've never had any issue with them and if your really wanting to go make it happen. I'm not a big fan of scalping but if reasonably priced why not. See ya in Chicago!

If Stub Hub has the tickets in hand then yes. If they have to send an email to the holder and they have to get it in the mail, then maybe. the holder as far as I know has till the next day to get it in the mail. so in reality it could take an extra day to get it. If the seller opted to send their tickets into stub hub to extend the sale date then Stub Hub will send out the same day. BUT with all that being said I have never gotten anything after the day they said it would arrive.

Good news man! I'm sure the Sunday will be added, it's a big production with Bill Walton commentary and all that pre-game and post-game action.

So far, 53 entries, 23 different songs. 15 people entered right at 6:00 PM (9 different songs). The order in which the entries appear in my inbox determines who was first, second, etc. The winner may still be out there if the guys open with something really unexpected. Only 2 days 'til showtime - cheers!

Anyone else notice that Stubhub changed their site? The search results and event pages no longer list total available ticket counts.

Those looking for Chicago tickets-HOLD STRONG Do Not Buy Yet! look how much prices have fallen since the release date. The scalper bastards are going to get nervous. Especially the ones that bought aftermarket tickets themselves, cutting their potential margin. I have a feeling those "get me in the door" obstructed seats are going to plummet after Santa Clara. Offer those ebay suckers face value & volunteer to split the next day shipping.

....means five encores. If they are all different, I'll guess Knockin' for 6/27, Brokedown for 6/28, Baby Blue for 7/3, US Blues for 7/4, and Ripple>We Bid You Goodnight for 7/5. I do think there will be a few songs repeated. There are a few signs that there will be at least one three set show. Bob said the venues are reserved until midnight. The cd releases are 4 per show.

Last note before we get Going Down The Road Feeling GLAD! Leaving Los Angeles for the road trip to Santa Clara in the early AM Friday and looking forward to seeing everyone at the shows. We've got 400 nosebleeds, but we'll be there with our dancin shoes on! A final last try to locate a missing friend here... If anyone knows Dave Cole from Dayton, Ohio please tell him that Tom "Truck" Carr (TCarr on dead.net) is looking for him and hopes to see him in Santa Clara (call three-one-zero-five-seven-five-nine-five-nine-six). Staying at the Ramada in Sunnyvale and our Santa Clara seats are: Sat: Sec 409, Row 3, Seats 22 & 23 Sun: Sec 407, Row 22, Seats 20 & 21 We'll be doing Chicago on the sofa, but wish everyone going to Chicago 3 great shows! Wish we were going to be there. Enjoy the show everyone! Tom "Truck" Carr Los Angeles, CA

This is a very exciting time for so many that did not get the chance to see them long ago, I wish all a happy fun safe journey I know that feel I use to get day before tour would begin. It was excitement and wonder, almost better then Christmas morning as a child. Almost cause nothing captures that feeling or anticipation better then Christmas as a child or beginning of tour as it use to be.

I've been lurking around here for the last few weeks, but now it's only a day away and I gotta get in the mix! Boarding passes printed (TSA pre-checked, woo hoo!), clear tote bags packed, tickets for both nights, parking passes, all set and ready to go! I was fortunate enough to be at Soldier Field on July 9, 1995, which I think was my 30th show and then Ratdog in Central Park in NYC on August 8th of the same year. The very night 'before'. Many shows in between then and now, all the incarnations, but nothing's going to compare to this! We all miss Jerry, his voice, his playing, but still this is gonna be EPIC! We're at the Wild Palms in Sunnyvale, hope to see some Heads there! I'll be the one with rings on my fingers and bells on my shoes!!

These shows will leave quite an impression. So many treasured songs and smiles to fill the air. I know the boys will play with heart and be as one. The music conquers all as does LOVE, one in the same. Trey's playing will sway a lot of the hesitant crowd. Bruce will utmost shine and deliver the goods. One more week! Stay blessed and smiling at Santa Clara! Couching those two!

Hey all-- I just returned from checking out the scene around Levi's. I spoke with a parking minion and asked her what would happen if we all showed up at noon? She said :'nothing.' So, I propose that we all show up, early, and make a problem that they have to solve by letting us into the parking spots we paid a lot of money for. The worst that can happen will be that we cause a Deadhead traffic jam, which is far better than sitting at home waiting to go to the shows. Thoughts?

I thought we took them off the list because of TSA and fear of a complete body cavity search for additional peanut butt-er and chocolate Oreos. The cracked court of jesters ruled the tinfoil hat would get by security, but the transportation of Smoreos into the boarding area could raise high suspicion. Of course, the 13 point blue and red Oreos will be sold in the lot in SC. I thought the Chicago scouts were going to track down those Reeces Oreos for distibution at the bon fire in Grant Park? Pack those Oreos at your own risk! Hmmm, whose bringing the marshmallows?

Allegedly, there's a 7-11 right near our hotel up in the State and Lake area. I'll have some marshmallows too. And peanut butter cups. By the middle of next week, I'm going to act and feel like I'm 24 again !! These are feelings and thoughts I figured were gone forever. Thanks, boys.

I was two hours away from boarding a plane to San Franciso to see the shows. My buddy was driving up from Los Angeles with the tickets to meet me there. 3 hours into his drive he had to turn around. He was a kidney transplant patient a few years ago. His body just started rejecting the kidney on the drive. He's in the ER and I was able to get a voucher. Send some love his way. Maybe we will see them at the 75th anniversary...
