    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...

    Well
    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."

First show day! Cant wait to see what they play-I hope everybody has a good 'ole time down in N.C.- One more week, One more week!!!! Funny how now that The Dead are coming around all the radio stations ACT like they LOVE The Dead- The other day I heard a little commercial for the upcoming Worcester shows on a station that NEVER plays them, Then the DJ comes on all phoney like-"Oh, I Cant Wait!!!(Yeah right) I Dont know-I guess its like around St.Patricks Day, When everyone thinks they're Irish--LOL---Its all good because...ONE MORE WEEK!!!!! Dust off those rusty strings.........:-)

yo moye, A for effort. Happy Easter to you and everyone else, too!! also, folks, watch out for counterfeit tickets!! please don't buy ANYTHING from people you don't know. worst case: it is some poisen and you end up dead or in the ER other bad case: it is an undercover-fuzz selling you to set you up for a fall. (scalper or other stuff undercover fuzz) totally dissapointing scenario: you think you have a tix, but get turned back and shut out at the door trying to get in with a bogus ticket you bought off some asshole. PLEASE be carfeul with everything. drive safe!

From seeing the set list and hearing a bit from the stream is it a fair assessment that the show rocked last night? "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"

Blew the roof off the top of the Greensboro Coliseum last night. Yes indeed, the show did ROCK! I wish Warren was a little more melodic with his leads, but why quibble? My internal organs are still shaking...GO AND SEE THIS TOUR!

Thank you to all in the Grateful Dead family for putting on this tour. Greensboro was an amazing musical experience. I am so grateful to this wonderful organization to offer the downloads of these shows as well. It always has been about the music. Sunday night in Greensboro was un-disputable proof that the boys are STILL the greatest band going. Thank you Phil,Bobby,Billy,Mickey,Jeff and Warren(who, by the way, did an amazing, amazing job filling those shoes. He was not flashy. Just showed in his own style, that he is one of the greatest guitarists on the scene today.) For all the Deadheads that will be attending the rest of the tour--enjoy yourselves. These shows are truly a gift to all the fans who realize just how special this music has been to us since the beginning. HAVE A GREAT TIME!!!!

Can't believe that in 48 hours I will be in the parking lot of a Dead Show!!!! It has been 14 long years... can't believe it. They played Ripple last night - so psyched to hear the recording, but a little bummed I missed it, cuz most likely won't come out tomorrow - I'm also going Sunday so I will hope for that - and here is why: I am going with my 14 year old son who is incredibly pumped to be seeing the Dead. He thought he would never get the chance. Now...when he was a baby I would sign him to sleep with... Ripple. The song became a real bond between us through the years, so when I heard that they played it in NYC I thought that it would be the perfect moment (OK, that and the fact I never saw it live when we were all still Grateful too). I am so excited I can hardly keep a thought in my head. You know what - never mind - I don't care what they play. WOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOO

I didn't really need any additional motivation, but what you say just gets me all the more excited for when I hit the last leg of the tour out west! Thanks man! "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"
