F Tipper Gore
And every other politician--Bunch of Kiss-ass,Phony,Tellin' everybody what they want to hear,lying,cheating bastards!!!! Now tell us how you REALLY feel..........:-)
I heard from my brother
I heard from my brother who, was with me in albany, that tonights show in buffalo was night and day compared to albany. He called me at work during the set break and said the Dead were ripping and down to business. Wish i saw that show. the setlist looks awesome. Anybody got a review from buffalo?
Worcester Sunday Night
Was amazing! Great vibes all through the Shakedown across from the DCU. The music was tight, the crowd was just a sea of positive energy. Security was at a bare minimum. I think that about sums it up :-).
From what i understand, T Gore went to Congress to urge 'Warning Labels' to be put on explicit material..she wasn't out to censor the music.... Touchy subject, but i see both sides of the coin...
Tipper Gore, tip o' my hat!
I remember when Tipper was second lady and Mickey used to visit the White House to give her drumming lessons. How cool was that? And, does anyone remember her at the opening ceremony for the Atlanta Olympics when she sat by Al's side as he grooved with Mickey's performance? And, as I write this on Earth Day, more than a tip of my hat, I say hat's off, to her for giving Al the idea to create a companion book for his slide show, which ended up getting his climate message out to an even wider audience. It was great to see some Deadhead DC royalty up on that stage. I figure she was Obama's ambassador of Dead. We're everywhere. No doubt about it.
Thursday night on David Letterman
April 23, (Earth Day plus 1), tune into CBS to see The Dead sitting-in with Dave and Paul Schaefer. Pull out the Closing of Winterland video and check out the Blues Brothers gig, and see if you recognize the keyboardist.

4/22/09 Dead Show Wilkes Barre PA
If anyone is staying at the Fairfield Inn Marriott for the Wilkes Barre show and wants to chill afterwards we're down. Room 223 trying to meet some people and hang out.
...Yeah, The whole scene at Worc. Sun. night was sweet- My wife and I arrived real early(11:30) and found a real cool lot right next to the DCU and it was already buzzing with Tourheads setting up shop(nice) We met tons of cool people and the weather was sweet! It was my wife's first REAL Dead show and she kept sayin' "This is so cool,No wonder you always went to The Dead" Sorry to say though-She liked the show,But she was'nt really down w/the early 60's stuff they played or the long jams(Both of which I LOVED) She was like, "I liked "Uncle John's Band" and "Fire on the mountain" and "Good Lovin"... But not all the "long jamming"..In her defense though, She's used to concerts where the band plays all their "hits" every night...(BORING).. But I said "Hun, That's not what The Dead is all about...It's about exploration of music and mind, and new discoveries."......Long silence.....Weird look...Then,"Well I liked "Uncle John's Band" HaHaHa!!!! Oh well, Ya' cant win 'em all !!! :-)(-: Next Stop-RATDOG Hampton Beach This July...This time maybe she'll GET SHOWN THE LIGHT........P.S. Thank-you D&K for a wonderful time in Worcester....It TRULY was magical..............Peace. ♪♪♪♪:-)
Lord You Can See
That It's True!!!!!!! What a grate night I had in Buffalo. Had to work today, was rough but I made it through the day.Peace
Someone should use Tipper
Someone should use Tipper Gore for a drum. A big hollow head like that sould really throw out a sound!! As for Al all I can say is thank the good lord the closest that idiot ever got to Pres. is runner up. HAPPY EARTH DAY!!!
Same lot we were at, we stayed at the Hilton so we had a clear view before we even headed down. We probably crossed paths several times. We are going to see Bob Weir-RatDog at the Festival Up North in Aug. I am trying to get a feel on the scene there though. So many friggin rules listed on their website. I am wondering if it is just a CYA situation or if they are really that strict.
Haa thats great! I had to chuckle .. Reminds me of my wife. She's a great sport and she has warmed up to the music and enjoys the shows and the scene but still to this day she still doesn't "get it". She wants me to take her to Reo Speedwagon and Styx... uhhh yeah sure I say... :-) Oh and 38 special let's not forget them they'll be there too :-) "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"
so many roads
i wanted to hear this song so badly and they played it last night i guess i wont hear it this tour unless they break it out at the spectrum or uniondale/msg i hope bobby dusts this one off with ratdog in the summer
Rich Uncle Pennybags
Yep Candyman last night and a real nice shew. Doesn't Bobby look like Mr. Monopoly now?
2009 Tour T-shirt
I want to buy the purple tour shirt in a medium. When I went to buy one in Buffalo they only had large and extra large. Can anyone help?
Thank you!! Wizard and I celebrated our anniversary at the show. It doesn't get any better! Warren Haynes a great addition. Peace out! Kat

parking lot @ Hartford Civic Center
Will there be a parking lot scene for the show this Sunday? Or are we stuck with a parking structure? It is supposed to be a beautiful day.
No red rocks show?
Whats up with that? -=] RiverMan [=-
Glad your WB show was a good one! Are you still looking forward to Philly? We had the best damn time in Worcester! Wishing you all your favorite sweet tunes!
Was a good show folks, parking lot scene was groovin, lots of balloons, met up with a few cats here on dead-net,snodgrass and rooster, whoo are currently on tour. Meetin up with a bunch of folks in Philly, ran into a buddy of mine name Shane, 1 genuine family is what it is. There is nothing else in the world like a dead show!! Philly is gonna blow my mind away!!!!! It makes me wonder what there gonna play??? I think tennesee Jed really got the crowd goin in Pa. Peace- Moye
JERR BEAR ON THIS TOUR!!

The security or where you go to show you ticket to get in the show.......The security wouldn't let the guy in the jerr-bear suit in......That kinda pissed me off alittle.... and of course everybody boo'd the security guys... Man, that guys like a great landmark on this tour, how they gonna not let him in the show....Oh, and revolution was sweet too, I seen Bobby play that at a ratdog show in Akron, Ohio once. Peace- Moye

LAST NIGHT SHOW IN LONG ISLAND FUCKIN ROCKED,,, THE BOYS WERE ON!!!!!!!!!! THE LOT FELT LIKE HOME,,,LEFT THE ENERGY FLOWING THRU MY VEINS,,,,,MSG TONIGHT CANT WAIT,JINGLE - FEW GOOD MEN MC - NEW YORK
Being a veteran of many shows at the Coliseum, last night was amazing. Just the scene in the lot was trans-splendid. Vending, partying, drumming and everyone was cool... even the police. They sat there, on horseback, and just smiled. Every scalper was selling seats at half box office price. Karma's a bitch, dude. The show jammed out. Lost Sailor Easy Wind fucking brilliant. Kudos out to everyone for making it a Grateful Dead experience. Truly a high time for one and all. Peace and Love. Tell me this town ain't got no heart You just got to poke around "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."
Which show should I buy?
Hey folks! New to the site here...longtime Head. First show in '85. REALLY bummed that I cant see any shows this spring but hearing RAVE reviews. Someone who has either heard all the shows so far...or better yet BEEN to them all---suggest which show of the tour I should buy up to this point! Limited budget...but I gotta have ONE!!
So far Worcester 4/19 smokin show. And you know that notion Just crossed my mind "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."
Just curious where the fuckin scalpers sellin just singles or did they have pairs?
They were selling singles and pairs you couldn't walk around without someone selling tix. A lot of heads chewed them down to $100 a pair. Sweet! But he band just kept on playing We forgot about the time "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."
Thanks for the info. Glad you enjoyed
SOOO WILKES_BARRE KICKE ASS<
THE SHOW WAS GREAT!! THE PARKING LOT WAS GREAT!! BUT my tour buddy got BUNKD for $160.00 by some ASSHOLE in the lot.... Wheres the REAL FAMILY at??? That is so UNKEEWWWL!!!! Looking forward to the next 2 shows in Philly!! See you there!!! Peace- Moye
Looking for good vibes
This is the only show I could make this year, by some miracle or miracles . The reviews have been sweet, as well as the set lists. Not to put down anyone, but the UNCOOL and UNKIND ones please keep the good times roll. Leave the bunk in the trunk. Seriously if a DEADHEAD ruled the world or even advised this wonderful country we belong to, why would u take your family for a fool. Need to shake my bones and take in all the love. Like I told you, like I say,,Steal Your Face right off your head. See ya soon, my genuine family. Kottonmouthjeff
watch out for the wolve's in deadhead's clothing
Went to the Worcester shows with wife and friend. He paid $100 for some plain white blotter from someone that "looked" like a head, talked like a head, and appeared to be honest, but alas, it was bunk.What a bummer, not only did he trust that he was going to get something good to enhance the time at the show, he is out $100! I know that's the chances one takes, but unlike the "old" days, the costs have gone up so you feel the loss that much more.
Man, What happened to the kindness???
I can remember back in 98, I never had any trouble with "enhancing" my shows on further tour. I'm beginning to think that the LUV has left the lot.... I hope I run into this guy in Philly!!! I know exactly what this asshole looks like, chances of that are slim to none tho.Peace- Moye
I was thinking the same thing
I've got the Jersey & Philly shows coming up. My buddy is joining us for those ones too, and it probably would not be a good scene to run into that "wolf" as he would just as soon give him a $100 worth of ass whoop! In a way I would love to see him get a beating, the crook, but wouldn't want to have to deal with any possible arrests as that would be insult to injury!I guess the "grateful family" has been infiltrated by those that have no problem thieving. I know they have always been out there, but it definitely becomes more personal when they burn you! ! What it ends up doing in the end, sadly, is make it hard to trust the next person.
I feel what ur saying man, im not a violent person by any meens, but yeah man, your right, it does make it hard to trust anybody on this tour. I don't even want the guys ass beat, I just want my buddys $160.00 back!! Hell, with $160.00 I could of got another floore seat for Chitown shows and a concert shirt. Ive had more luck with DSO shows then this tour so far. Oh well, its all about the music anyway. EVERYBODY!!! Watch each card you lay and play it slow.Peace- Moye
Holy crap man $100.00 !!
It`s been a very very long time for me with that stuff , I remember when it was like $3.oo a dose !! Maybe I`m just to old or damm inflation ? wow that`s crazy , and yes what happened to the kindness ? I`m glad I`m clean now !! "those day`s are gone forever, I should just let em go"
a "HIT" of reality
I got burned many years ago on a sheet (when ya could still afford to buy one) and the taste has never left my mouth but what are ya gonna do except know the world is round and "what comes around goes around". Thanks for keeping us informed (for those of us who still do) because " knowing is half the battle". in 2004 I met a guy at deer creek before the show with some of the sweetest liquid ever !!! If your out there man its the guy from chi town I hope to see ya :>
lot scene in Hartford
Where's Shakedown happenin' in CT???Peace.... Beth
Reality.....What a concept! Brain cell repair is tough to come by....."Here comes your 19th nervous breakdown"
I have an extra pair of tickets for the Saturday night Philly show......section 309A. I paid $190 pair, will sell them for $150. Anyone interested? On with the show! Thanks
PLEASE HELP OUT A TAPER!!
Hi- Here's the deal. I'm a taper and have a taper ticket for both nights at Izod in NJ. I have floor tickets to get my wife and kids onto the floor with me on Tuesday but not Wednesday (they're 5 & 3 and she's pregnant) so I need them to be close to me. I need to trade my 3 regular tickets for Wednesday for 3 floor tickets. They can be ANYWHERE on the floor (the further back, the better for me). The 3 regular tickets I have are in Section 122 which are RIGHT ON THE SIDE near the stage! These are MUCH better seats than the back of the floor. Of course, I will hook you up w/ copies of the shows from Nassau, MSG, the 2 nights of NJ and the 2 nights of Philly (the 6 I went/am going). Please let me know asap!! Thanks!!
COME ON FRIDAY!!!!
PHILLY!!!! 4 DAZE TILL I GET TO SEE THE BOYZZ AGAIN:)"Thank you-_-_-___-_-_ For a real good time!!!!" Peace- Moye
