The band says Happy New Year with an announcement of almost twenty shows in April and May. More details to come!
Are you Seriousss
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'm over it...
oh well, the tickets are $100. it shocked me at first too. was expecting 1/2 that. i guess thats just 50 more grilled cheese sandwiches i gotta sell to see a show. ;)
the Gorge with the ABB
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
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!!!!!!!!
Only higher price for presale?
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!
Confused but not deterred
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!
Almost 900 people online
Almost 900 people online right now..I am curious to see it when it peaks tommorrow..It is almost show time..Only one more sleep until we hopefully all get our seats ..Woot Sleeping will be tough tonight
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!
on the $$ ering143
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
how many tickets can we purchase per tomorrows pre sale adventure ?
I thought there were $69 tix
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...........
i would assume @ least 4 but this has been very secretive in a sense..I am not nearly as stressed about the money as I am in trying to get the correct info to make it a smooth transaction...I have any all 3 of the ticket outlets to my favorites and had to register with all of them..Damn it should be an interesting effort tommorrow
Take it easy
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.
I have tried numerous times to create an account with musictoday for the presale tomorrow, BUT everytime i try it says there is an error, the password and confirm password do not match. What the heck is going on? Where else can i get the presale tix through tomorrow?
Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!
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. (At a hundred bucks a pop, I f*ckin' better!) ********************************************* I have a sigfile! --> www.kindveggieburritos.com *********************************************

Wow - What inflation
Damn, they are not looking to make this affordable, that's for sure. Suppose I'll have to wait for the tape...
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 ?
Ripoff pricing of 2009 tour
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.
what to choose.....
just got my stuff ready for the gdts mail order earlier this evening.....filling out the index card, etc......hmmm....now i don't know if i should buy the money order or try to get logged in at noon????? ALL GOOD THINGS IN ALL GOOD TIME.....
Jerry and Pig Pen must have been resurrected
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.
does kinda bum me out....
not to be able to see more than one show.....i could very easily make it to at least three....logistically....but alas, price wise....gonna have to settle for Cville.....i am thankful that the MULE still keeps their ticket prices at around $30.......but i gotta see Warren play Jer's tunes....Peace... ALL GOOD THINGS IN ALL GOOD TIME.....
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.
this is getting dumb
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!
keep yer head
humble suggestions ... Bob talks about the music http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_M8f23BQDY Warren and Derek soothing slide http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UauECrCIYl8 Soundcheck at PSU/Obama show http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHsvo2-FHuU 10/25/1979 on archive.org http://www.archive.org/details/gd79-10-25.set1aud-set2sbd.miller.22792… the things I cannot change, the things I can ...
prices are high and crazy butt..
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.
re: access code
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.
im thinking about turning in
im thinking about turning in my dyes and buy some suites. in my humble opinion, the boys forgot about us and sold out to the almighty dolla.
what link are u talkin about? i checked ticket-bastard... holy moly! will not go through them.
don't get me wrong....
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...... ALL GOOD THINGS IN ALL GOOD TIME.....
created an account....
but i wonder will there be xtra fees with the musictoday?? ALL GOOD THINGS IN ALL GOOD TIME.....

over 1,300 people looking at
over 1,300 people looking at forums right now and this is the only thread really moving..I think the demand is high
never been shut out.....
have always gotten tix through mail order....but that was 15 years ago.... ALL GOOD THINGS IN ALL GOOD TIME.....
what makes you think that we will be emailed the access code? I don't think they meant the verification code but who knows?
anyone have details on the Internet sales starting tomorrow morning? Is there some type of password that has to be used to get into the sale? RatDog and Phil and Friends did two shows in SF for New Year's Eve and both bands were very, very good. Can't wait for May!
suggestion! might seem silly butt im doin it.
i have about 6 five gallon gas cans. Im gonna fill em up while gas is still down a bit and store em till April. Gas might go back up to 4 somthing a gallon by then for all we know. At least my intial tank on departure will be cheaper and already paid for, plus i will be able to take one or two with me.
Access Code or Promo Code
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!!
damn i'm sure
missin' Jerry right now....thinkin' about Hampton, VA....the last GA holdout....he loved playin' there..... ALL GOOD THINGS IN ALL GOOD TIME.....
didn't see anything...
about access codes....just clicked on the link at top of page and created an account.... ALL GOOD THINGS IN ALL GOOD TIME.....
you are referring to the scramble code that had to be copied when you created your account?? ALL GOOD THINGS IN ALL GOOD TIME.....
It is basically a security measure for the site..
I could be wrong,but I think
I could be wrong,but I think by getting a account that is your access code.
I'm confused-NOTHING NEW, but someone clarify this for me. They are doing mailorder and internet sales??
seems that way.....
Looks like both.... ALL GOOD THINGS IN ALL GOOD TIME.....
nobody has a clue man! Your just gonna have to wing it and hope all ends well. Your not alone, the people responsable for this tour dont even know. Ive been living on this board since the tour was announced, and you could visit the site for the first time in your life today and know just as much as anybody here. good luck
gotta believe that if you mailorder tomorrow, you'll get tickets.....but with the internet sales you will get to see what seats you're getting....if you can get logged in....I'll be at work tomorrow, hope to be able to log in but ..... ALL GOOD THINGS IN ALL GOOD TIME.....
