    Thanks, Twinz. I'm a little bummed, I haven't been to a show in like 14 years and I wanted the next one I see to be summertime.....chill parking lot scene.....lawn seats......you know, the *perfect* scene! Then I saw the boys are playing the Allstate Arena by me.....UGH! That place is a barn with horrible acoustics overall pretty opressive....exactly what I DIDN'T want my return-show to be! So I skipped out on this one cuz it seemed like they were gearing up for a summer tour. I'm hoping i'll be able to catch em at Rothbury in July. Perhaps I'll catch the fall tour, even IF it's indoors :-\",0"

    I suppose it says something that wrinkle cream is now considered an indispensable tour accoutrement. Wrinkle cream spam deleted...

    This thread is pretty old, but I don't know if it's old enough to need wrinkle cream. Besides, wouldn't that just make our monitors look all streaky? Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

    Hey now! New to the forums, but long to the vibe! We're traveling from DC/VA to CA for this summer's Mountain Air Fest!! Curious to know from other's who have been to this location- the Calaveras County Fairgrounds/Angel's Camp....should we expect it to be as large and as well outfitted as our (east-coast) All Good Festival, for example? Car camping probable if one arrives early? Bountiful food vendors, so as not to worry about cooking? Port-a-johns and pay-showers available? Kind friends? Mellow/safe vibe, despite the huge turnout? We'd love to know as much as we can so we can be well prepared to party! Thanks! ...and see ya'll west-coasters out east for the remainder of the Spring shows! "One way or another, this darkness has got to give."

Hey Dan,Don't let it bug you - I believe we've all moved on from where things were at a few months ago. Our heroine, Mary E, saved us from the dragon, and the vibes have been much sunnier here since then (Thanks, Mary!). Crickets and cicadas sing, a rare and different tune, Terrapin Station.

Crystal Journey has arrived in the United States for a 14 city tour along with seeing The Dead 7 times in NY, NJ, DC, NC and VA. It was a very smooth and peaceful border crossing, a BIG smile from the pretty woman in the booth asking where we were going? to see the Grateful Dead I yelled with excitement. Photos and news will be updated as I have internet access. All Crystal Journey dates are on the performances page.

If you ordered your tix from musictoday via the online pre sale, they should be delivered to your door by UPS if you chose the default shipping method when ordering. (got my Chi. tix this way a couple of days ago) You should also get an email notifying you that they've shipped along with a tracking #. If nothing happens by 1 week or so prior to the show, you should refer to the email confirmation you received after ordering, and send an email to the musictoday link provided letting them know.

of you got your tickets in the mailbox and one of you got your tickets at your door? I seriously have the worst luck when it comes to ticket delivery. I followed the tracking number online it said they tried to deliver to my door but I wasn't there (yeah no kidding I'm at work!) and that they left a slip. I get home and there is no slip. Now I try to call USPS and it is all automated.. Can't get a hold of a live person. I'm so frustrated.. I know I'm going to get thrown to the wolves for backing TicketSlacker but at least when you buy a ticket from them, you just print the damn tickets right there on your computer and you don't have to go through all this waiting and agonizing and trying to call people etc.. I have 3 more packages of pre sale tickets still coming.. I'm going to be a nervous wreck by the time this is all said and done! :-) "When the smoke has cleared she said, that's what she said to me. You're gonna want a bed to lay your head and a little sympathy"

Can't you hit "0" and get an operator or customer service person? I hate the automated systems!!! I would be frustrated too. I have my mom on UPS patrol today since the tix are going to her house. I told her if she hears anything remotely close to a ups truck her little butt better be out at the mail box lol!

I did order mine at the presale with music today and I did get an email saying they were on the way, but they were put in my mailbox in that big white mailer-type envelope?!?! I think I just went with the default shipping method also. I don't know! I was so nervous and anxious that day I got the tickets, there is no telling what I hit:)

Was the tracking info you received from UPS (brown) or from USPS (mailman) ? Either way, I suppose, you should be able to get info online as to the status of your package if you re-check the track. It may be at your local post office or the UPS office, available for you to pick up. Or they may have returned to sender. Hopefully not! :-(

If it was UPS, they will usually try back the next day- just make sure you or someone is there to sign for it. " Goin' where the climate suits my clothes... "

I remember having all my stuff ready to go, I stayed home from work to order through presale, then the system was overloaded adn I kept getting logged off or thrown back to the previous screen. I was so frustrated I remember pacing back and fourth just waiting to get to the next screen and complete the order. Luckily I can laugh about it now :o)!

Musictoday does alot of the pre-sale ticketing for bands nowdays and they do leave some things to be desired. As far as the delivery I ordered from them along with GDTS and when they delivered I thought they would ask for a signiture but they just stuck it under the door mat and rang the bell. They do tell ya (I dont know why I never do this) that if your not going to be home have it delivered to your work. UPS will deliver to all offices before 5 PM (7PM for home delivery) and most offices have a recptionist or send it to a friends office if you dont have one. Goode luck I am still waiting for my Shorline tix and chi 5/4

I live in San Diego and have 2 VIP tickets to the May 9th Show in Los Angeles. I'm hoping to find someone to join me in having a great time. The tickets are paid for and I would require no compensation or strings attached for joining me. Contact me if you would be interested -- especially in riding up with me from San Diego. FWIW, I am a 39-year old male divorced attorney and a nice guy who is drug free.

Bought my C'ville ticket today! Can't wait! Hope to run into some old friends there. Although I'm not from this side of the US, actually from West Coast...but I might get lucky...at my age all my friends are probably going thru mid-life crisis so they might have decided to tour with the Dead again....its been many years since my last show...I don't remember it very well because there have been so many and they all seem to get jumbled up in my head....so yeah...looking forward to the show and seeing some family! Thinking about taking a trip down to Greensboro to get away from family drama at home with the holiday coming. My daughter will be out of town with her dad in CA and I will be on my own (cept for the family drama I will leave behind). Looked into going to the DC show but yikes it reminds me of a Vegas show without Vegas! Parking will suck! So not sure bout it yet. But I do have the day off! Anyway, hope to see some friends and family in C'ville. Ciao! Ann Marie (originally from west coast L.A. area)

This is going to sound dumb but I've never downloaded a concert before. Can somebody tell me what's the difference between MP3 and Flack is? Also, how do I get it loaded into my Ipod. I know, I'm computer challenged. Thanks,I would appreciate the help. Two more days! Can't wait.

Estimated Prophet into Birdsong I finally got my Denver tickets after the post office fiasco earlier this week... they were in the mail and I have a PO box which complicates it even more. Anyways I am relieved but I still have 3 more packages of tickets to go... yikes! I am sure it will be a roller coaster ride before it is all said and done :-) Oh and I also got my Hartford 77 CD's and they are smokin from what I have heard so far. Today I am very happy with the post office yaaay!! "And I'll call down thunder and speak the same. My word fills the sky with flame. Might and glory gonna be my name and they gonna light my way."
