The band says Happy New Year with an announcement of almost twenty shows in April and May. More details to come!
I do not know any of these details right now, but rest assured that when all that stuff is officially defined and real we will be letting you know soonest!
MarkintheDark, you mentioned you thought they may add some Cali shows...you really think? I would love for them to do a San Diego night!
Any information regarding vending outside any of these venues for the Spring tour will be appreciated. Three generations of my family are going to do this entire tour via school bus. Vending food & merchandise - - can't wait to see all my old friends and introduce them to our grandchildren!! So glad that "the boys" are coming out for us again..... peace/love**kris and family Funk your mind and your ass will follow ~ George Clinton
can't wait for the spectrum shows my sister lives in philadelphia. I'm also going to try to make it to nassau and the worcester shows along with albany and buffalo and wilkes barre. I need help figuring out how presale will work, any help is greatly appreciated.
Anyone know how pre-sale works? Never did a presale before, any info would help! ~*Standing on the moon with nothing left to do, a lovely view of Heaven but I'd rather be with you*~
get the bus tanked up - he's still watchin us
I'm just a chimp in Kentucky, so when I say "guessing they'll add Cali shows" it's not even a very educated guess. However, that's the end of the little tour, and they have several weeks before Bonnaroo (if they're even going, that's another guess). I expect with only two shows in Califorrnia those two shows will be packed full, deep and wide, and they wouldn't have any trouble selling out all the shows they want. It would be silly not to add shows, and SoCal would seem likely, assuming the guys' individual schedules allow it. Since Phil, Bob and Micki have toured through the spring and summer anyway the last few years I'd be surprised if (a) some shows didn't get added, and (b) there wasn't a summer tour on the festival circuit as well. I also wouldn't be surprised to see a jump over to Europe in the fall, either. It's been years, and they would certainly be welcomed. I'm sure the economics favor it. I'll keep my chimp fingers crossed for you li'l darlin's! Ook ook! Cheers, MarkintheDark ********************************************* I have a sigfile! --> www.kindveggieburritos.com *********************************************
I'm hoping you're right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep your fingers crossed for us Cali heads!
E!Online via Yahoo News (or vice versa) have an article on the tour now, with the headline "The Dead to Roam the Earth". My sister heard it on some radio news today, and called to make sure I knew (she's not a deadhead at all). I pretended not to already know when she said "they're going to be in Chicago, that's only a few hours away, you should go" - I've already googled up maps and expedia'd up plane tickets and hotels. Now, if I only had the cash... Come on, Powerball! ********************************************* I have a sigfile! --> www.kindveggieburritos.com *********************************************
Hey Now, OklahomaKris! Vending, as always, will be a roll of the dice. Some places simply will try not to let that deal go down, others will turn the other cheek. Be vigilant, be safe, be lowkey but most important of all, enjoy the music. See you on Shakedown Street!
What a way to start the year.
HippieChuck-the only thing left to say is i love all my brothers and sisters...c-u-there!
They're a band beyond description.Like Jehovah's favorite choir People joinin' hand-in-hand While the music plays the band Lord they're settin' us on fire.
And here I was complaining about lack of good music here lately.Anyone local to the triad interested in getting a group together? I'm sorta new in town. Am considering the following hiccup tour if anyone even remotely local without major baggage is up for it. 4/12, 13, 14 4/24-5/2 meg 6/14/91 RFK - Present
ThePotterJohn Yes, the GD and the ABB were awesome at the Gorge, I live in Washington now, reminded me of days past when I lived in the south. Speaking of, now WHICH coast are these guys from????? You might not know from the tour dates. HEY, Washington has some great venues!!! Just some thoughts, trying to run down my first show, either Boutwell Alabama '78 or '80 and I got a couple hundred under my belt. YEAH!!!!
Well I may be out of work at the moment, but I'll figure a way to get to at least the Chicago show. Man if I had the $$$ to score tix for all shows, I'd do the whole run. Not sure if these old tied bones could hack a month on the road in the back of my car... But I'm thinking about it...! ;o)
3 Shows Out West..........What!!!!How about a 3 Day Grand Finale @ The Sam Boyd Silver Bowl! This is where the DEAD Summit Really Takes Place, where the Grateful Truly Get Grateful.... Come ON Fella's Lets Dig Deep & Have A Few More Shows Out West! Lets Do It!!!!
Somehow I think Jerry is behind this and he's smiling at us all! Thanks Jerry!
Plan to see both California shows. Hope this goes really well and you can return to three-show weekends, play the Greek in Berkeley, maybe do Ventura again!
and the first show is the closest to me and is also my first full day of spring break, i love it when a plan comes together!
The future is looking brighter. What an awesome way to wake up and see that the Dead are giving it another go this Spring, hope the just keep it going on through the Summer. Peace and Love too much of everything, is just enough...
Rise and shine, Eurodead! Get your gear together and let's hit the US road . . . if they're not meeting us here, let's meet them there. After all, they are THE BAND (dang, what a surprise, guess we are following them after all instead of vice versa--who knew?). No spring Jam in the Dam this year so guess the cash is gonna go to a rock reunion family Dead style. It really, truly doesn't matter what you wear . . .
ill be rockin here in Chicago....anyone wants to hook up & go your welcome to ....I cant wait...
With Chicago being the only show in the midwest it will be jam packed. Better get your tickets early I wouldn't want to miss this one. Last time I seen the boys together was Alpine Valley in 2001. I sure have missed you guys. All that wander are not lost
so my wife and i were planing our first family road trip to north carilona in april then the dead go and anounce spring tour dates starting in greenseboro.......its like a dream come true i will bring my son to his first dead show.......are we there yet? are we ther yet? ARE WE THERE YET !!!!
We can't wait. We are going to take our daughter she will be 9. How exciting to show her what her mom and dad and grandparents loved.
Missed the last go 'round unfortunately. Haven't seen these guys since The Others Ones at Byrne Arena on a cold, dark night in the swamps of Jersey. I think it was November of 1999??
I hate to poop on the good news... but once again, they tour for their wallets not their fan love.... 12 shows packed into the N.E. corner, then just 2 shows west of the Rockies!?!?!? Are you kidding me!?!?! Looks like Phil's tour manager wrote this tour up...I'm extrememly stoked that the boys are getting out, but c'mon. Another N.E. laden "national tour" makes many out here wanna vomit..... I'm hoping they announce some early summer shows for the West!
Hi folks, a nubie here and excited about The Dead goin to the XL Center (Hartford). Does any body know how the pre-sale will work (a specific credit card?)? Thanks for any info.
the storyteller makes no choice... Obama in the white house & the Dead on the road: 2009 is looking good so far!
p.s.) Love the symbolism of the Dead playing their first show on Easter. Resurrect the boys and let the tunes ascend up to the heaven! Be very cool to hear a first song, first show, Estimated Prophet to complete the lovely symbolic prankster message: "Like an angel, standing in a shaft of light Rising up to paradise, I know I'm gonna shine"
Gotta love two shows in Philly at the Spectrum especially with the stinkin Mutts in town that weekend to play the World Champion Phillies. Should be a great weekend and a nice send off for the Spectrum before they tear that old building down!!!
Yep. I was gonna go to my first dead show since the worst show i saw in 1993 and they're skipping the northwest. good thing there aren't any deadheads up here. oh, wait. yes there are. well. here is one guy praying for dvd's and soundboards.
I NOW LIVE IN CHILE AND HAVE LIVED HERE FOR OVER SIX YEARS. I THINK IT WOULD BE REALLY GREAT IT IF THE BAND WOULD CONSIDER COMING DOWN HERE. YOU GUYS COULD PLAY HERE AS WELL IN ARGENTINA. I CANT REALLY SAY HOW MANY HEADS EXIST DOWN IN THESE PARTS, BUT THEN AGAIN I HAVENT EVER TAKEN A SURVIVE EITHER. I KNOW A FEW PEOPLE THAT WOULD DIG SEEING YOU GUYS AND ONE OF THEM IS DEFINITELY ME. I KNOW THAT THERE IS A SCENE OF MUSIC LOVERS DOWN HERE BECAUSE I TALK TO THEM, PLUS ARGENTINA IS A BALLS OUT ROCK-N-ROLL COUNTRY SO YOU WOULD HAVE A GAS THERE AS WELL. THE LOVERS OF MUSIC DOWN HERE REALLY APPRECIATE WHEN MUSICIANS FROM OTHER PLACES OUTSIDE OF SOUTH AMERICA PLAY. WHEN PEARL JAM CAME HERE IT WAS THE SHIT. THE PEOPLE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE MUSIC AND I AM NOT EVEN MAKING A PUN ON WORDS. I KNOW AS MUSICIANS YOU WOULD REALLY FEEL THE LOVE WITH THE MUSIC LOVERS IN THESE PARTS. BOB DYLAN CAME DOWN HERE A FEW YEARS AGO, I AM SURE HE CAN CONTEST THAT IT WAS WORTH IT. ALSO YOU GUYS CAN CHECK OUT THE COUNTRY, IT HAS MANY BEAUTIFUL PLACES TO SEE. "TORRE DEL PAYNE" WHICH IS A LOVELY PARK IN THE SOUTH AND IF YOU LIKE COOPER MINES, IN THE NORTH THE LARGEST OPEN FACED MINE IN THE WORLD IS HERE. DID I MENTION THE YUMMY FOOD-FORGET ABOUT, MAN IT'S THE BOMB AND NOT ONLY THAT THE PEOPLE LOVE TO MAKE IT FOR FOREGNIERS. I AS WELL AS MANY OTHERS WOULD JUST LOVE IF YOU GUYS CAME HERE. IF YOU EVER WANT TO COME, PLEASE DO BECAUSE YOU WILL BE GLAD THAT YOU DID AND SO WILL WE. I HOPE TO SEE YOU IN SHORELINE IF ALL GOES WELL I WILL. YOUR MUSIC HAS ALWAYS MEANT SO MUCH TO ME AND I WILL ALWAYS BE HAPPY TO KNOW THAT WHAT YOU HAVE DONE AND WHAT YOU CONTINUE TO DO AS MUSICIANS IS JUST GRAND. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR EFFORTS THROUGHOUT THE YEARS. SINCERELY YOUR FRIEND, JOE
The press release states the band formed in Haight Ashbury in the mid 60's. I always thought they formed south of San Franscisco more around the Palo Alto area. Am I missing something or is the publicist? A little historical revisionism going on here; or do we know more than the person writing the release? If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. William Blake
watch the video on dead.net, the boys seem very stoked!!!!
Now to get the bus tuned up! Looking for presale info??? This is why I don't take off work when I'm sick....now is when I cash in.... Oh and please tour summertime! I'll drop outta this crazy world and go on tour baby! wooo hooo
Dead Freaks Unite... How come I see tickets 'FOR SALE' @ Jumbotckerts.com & Tickets-for-Events.com...When tickets here (the 1st place to get Tix) go sale 1/13/09 ...?... I don't get it, where did these ppl get Tix or are they fake...?... I just don't know but seems something isn't kosher @ Terrapin Station... And we all know you didn't mess with Terrapin Station... ;) ... Thanks, if anyone has any info about these Tix I and I bet a lot of other DHs would like to know...
What is up with that ticket availability? And I certainly hope those prices aren't indicative... Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
I checked it out and to me it looks pretty fake but if anyone can shed anymore light on this then i'll keep checking back here i'll keep you all updated if i see or hear anything. Still need info on the way presale will work !!!
Totally grateful...but I would have hoped for at least a 2 night run at MASG...but I'll take what I can get. Looks like MSG and the two NJ shows for me. I will of course try to get in the Spectrum shows for ol times sake if i can fit them in. Such great news!!!!!
Just listed to the 12-30 P&F show again. If Jimmy or Warren aren't avaiable, my vote is for Barry. This cat is awesome!!
at least they are playing in your area.
UK dates pleeeeeease. Uk dates, Uk dates, we want UK dates.......Can anyone hear me, it's so quiet. We need UK dates.
at least you can take a train to amsterdam.
Just so folks know. Any tickets you see listed already are scalpers that are ASSUMING they will get tickets to sell. They just put up the listings. Then, in the fine print, they mention that they may not be able to get them. DO NOT BUY FROM SCALPERS! Just get your #10 envelopes together :-) (or do this new fangled "pre-sale" that is being listed...)
thanks bassshango for clearing that up . Still need presale info ?
Have you all seriously never heard of a pre sale? It's nothing that special I am sure. They will release some tickets a few days/weeks before the rest are released to the public. If it is anything like other pre sales I have done, they will give you a promo code probably on this website that you plug into a field when you are purchasing the tickets online from whichever ticket broker they use (Ticketmaster). It shouldn't be anything more than that. I wonder if they are doing mail order?? Either way I imagine it is going to be rather difficult to get tickets especially to shows out west. "I can tell the queen of diamonds by the way she shines. Come to daddy on an inside straight, well I've got no chance of losing this time"
BassShango - Tickets-for-events.com has specific seats one can purchase. Look at what I was able to bring up (only thing left to do in order to purchase the tix was to provide a credit card number). Sun, Apr 12, 2009 TBA Greensboro Coliseum Section: C Row: 24 Price Per Ticket: $438.00 Tickets Requested: -- 2 Total does not include state or local taxes if applicable. Tickets: 2 x $438.00 Service Fee: 2 x $78.84 Shipping: $15.00 Total: $1,048.68 As Warren Zevon said: "Disorder in the House!"
$438.00 WTF is that, kinda high, don't you think.
