    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"

    probably the Going Furthur topic would be your best bet.

    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."

Speaking on behalf of dead heads who honestly has the money to go to multiple shows. $100 dollars a ticket is completley outragious. If im spending 100 bucks for a ticket it sure as h**l better be a floor ticket not some nosebleed b.s.

I live in Seattle and I am praying and hoping they play the Gorge this summer..I am looking forward to going to Shoreline and spending a few days in the Bay Area.. We also have a house near the ocean in Santa Cruz... The smiles, dancing & laughter in the air will compensate for any price tag and that my friends can not be bought

More people are complaining over the cost of a ticket vs. the price of gas we were paying last summer. Come on...... take that extra money you're not spending on inflated gas prices and by a ticket!!!!!!!!

I just registered at the deadtickets site and the only tickets listed for the WB, PA show are the upper tier pricing? Other shows have two tier tix, but some only have the mucho dinero tix? I don't care where my seat is...not like I'll be using it anyway and no need to see the "maturity lines" on Bobby! lol I wanted to treat my bro and his girl, since they can't really spring for $150 (lower price tix? at least for mailorder) for them both...but it's going to cost me $300 for us to catch the boys one last time? *sigh* Time to break out the colored pencils and get my envelope ready for tomorrow! ~Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings!

What's confusing me is how some of the venues appear to have only the upper tier tickets on sale during the pre-sale (Nassau Coliseum, MSG, the Spectrum, etc.) while others have both tiers available (Buffalo, Hartford, etc.). Anyone know why this is? I can't imagine they'd sell the lesser seats for the higher price during the presale online, while selling them for regular price via mailorder and/or when they eventually go on sale to the public... but then again it would depend on what shady ticket company was in charge. Anyway, based on the ticket prices I'm probably going to mail order- at least I know what I SHOULD be getting when I pay $100 for a ticket to MSG, and it seems like the only way to get the cheap tickets to the E. Rutherford shows. If they would just make it clear on the site what tickets are being sold for that price... Anyway, it's gonna be a wonderfully strange time regardless... see you on Shakedown Street!

So the tickets are going thru music today, I already have a musictoday account, i guess this is a separate account on dead.net? hope this whole registration thing on the dead site doesnt fuck up tomorrow. Who ever is in charge of logistics for this tour should be off the "bus"! Christ! They dont even know whats going on I.E "We've learned from the ticket vendor that you must create an account to place an order" This just coming out less than 24 hours away from the pre-sale. God, buddah, muhammad, somebody help us!

you are exactly right on track. Who cares on the cost. I almost pucked from being excited when I saw the website change with new info. I would have payed twice today's rate and sat in the parking lot if I knew it would have been Jerry's last show back then. Being able to see the four of them together and see the magic in person possibly one last time!! At least I'm enjoyin' the Ride!! GratefulParks

I thought there were $69 tix for the spectrum? Now I only see the upper level tix and I booked a hotel already. Uggghhh Oh well, looks like I'm going anyway. Think I'll steer clear of Rikers though, LOL! Put your gold money where your love is, baby...........

They won't sell out on the presale. This isn't The Stones or The Eagles. If you don't have the cash, don't buy them. If you do, get them when you can. Most venues i've been to over the past couple decades didn't sell out, I doubt these big arena shows will. Personally, I wish they would have chosen smaller places to play to keep the room full. It's been a bummer on ratdog shows looking behind me and seeing empty seats.

My guru has spoken, and to Chicago I must go! I will pay a week's worth of food (for me, not including the dog), I will fly if I must, and endure a Cubs game if I have to (brrrr) because my guru commands it be so! Live in fear, Rosemont IL. MarkintheDark approaches, and he *will* enjoy himself.

does anyone know if there is any talk of sticking an alpine valley show into the line-up? i cant believe that with alpines rich place in dead history that they would skip it on their potentially last tour?! i will be at a show, i'll probably have to catch the allstate, but wouldnt it be great to gather on the rolling hill at alpine valley and dance to the dead with the grass under your bare toes again? what do we need to do to get a show at alpine? anyone ?

Well guess who sold out now. The Dead. Here we are in troubled times, a national Depression on the crest of the wave and the boys want us to shell out $100 a ticket. Change is here ok. When we really need a break the Dead break our banks.Thanks a mil. Bucks that is.

Given the prices they want for these shows. I had looked at doing 4-5. Might just blow off the whole thing. If they have brought these back from the netherworld, would someone let me know.

is it possible the access code is the "security code" that had to be entered after the user name and password were entered? I hope not because I didn't write it down. The reason I'm asking is because I just received an email that didn't mention anything about the access code.

Look with now a days inflation. Does it really suprise you that its this much. For that matter I hear all you cry & complain but come on its the Dead & you dont think its worth it. Yea it may not be as little of cost as it was 30 yrs ago but today is today & who knows when we will see these guys back on stage. Let alone what may happen to then in the up coming years. So a certain price you may not feel is fair. Just think how you would feel saving those couple bucks & missing one of the last Dead shows, cuz we all know theres not gonna be to much more. Hell thats my 2 cents but what do I know!

i was gonna go to 3-5 shows then just one but now i think im gonna go to two. Im gonna buy a a good seat for one show and a cheapo ticket for the other (<----cheapo ticket? does that exist?) See im thinking since everybodys pissed that the tickets are so expense maybe the place will only be half full and i can get to a better seat, maybe even the floor. Or just dose the security guard and come back in 30 min and we'll both go down to the floor and have a good time.

no i don't think the "security code" would be an access code. that's just to keep automated responses at rest. On to a different subject... people complaining about the price of tix... my husband and i spent $100 a pop plus hotel room for the allman bros and bob weir in chicago last year. We are thrilled the tix are only $100 for the number of bands you will see on this tour. We missed the obama show. been kickin ourselves ever since. when we heard of this we decided right away, and with no clue what the cost, WE ARE SOOOO THERE!

it's not just the $100 tickets. it's also the VIP packages that it appears have basically locked up the first 10 rows...the DEAD...VIP PACKAGES???? Unreal. I'm not even sure it makes good economic sense for the band...They're gonna walk out on stage every night to a lot of expensive--and empty--seats.

I LOVE THESE GUYZ.....always have, always will....got on the bus in '79...truly some of the best moments of my life.....i just wasn't expecting it to be quite so much.....saw Phil in Richmond last year and had the most wonderful time...right down in front, groovin' with my 3 children (all in their 20's)....just kinda sad i can't see as much of this tour as i would have liked, and can't afford to help my kids get tix......been a little spoiled seeing Mule tours at 30 dollars a nite.....but i will send in the mail order for C'ville, and maybe try logging in tomorrow and use the damn credit card for Greensboro or DC......

Looking for infor or clarification on the subject of an Access Code. After registering for an account to purchase tickets tomorrow, I read the "Frequently Asked Questions" section and saw a reference to Acess Codes. Where do they come from? How do we get them? Will they appear tomorrow when they open up the site to purchase tix? HELP!!
