    GratefulTwinz:
    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."

No offense, but I can't believe u guys moaning about an 8 hour drive to get to a show etc...what about those of us overseas? Man, I used to hitch across the country at the drop of a hat to see the boys, with NO money in my pocket. I always found a way! I even traveled all the way from the south of New Zealand once just to get to do Spring Tour (surely a Deadhead record) arriving around midnight the night before with no idea of where I'd stay, just heading to the lot and seeing what happened. I've even had to be in the States illegally to see shows as I got deported years ago for swinging on the lot. This is what being Deadicated really means! You guys are so lucky, I'm happy for u all, but my heart is breaking at the same time. I don't think I can handle the stress of coming into the States illegally again to see the boys even though I know I'd see a lot of old friends. My best friends, the best u could ever wish for. My family. But with the way the U.S. is like a police state these days the chances of getting caught and put in jail for a year or two just for entering illegally is probably too much for me. Please come to Europe guys... Could everyone PLEASE, PLEASE post asking the guys to tour Europe this year!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Are you kind?"

Warren Haynes is a good guitar player and all but I sure wish Steve Kimock was in the line up. When he played with Ratdog in 2007 tour it was some of the best guitar playing I have ever heard. He understands how to achieve that psychedelic sound that was Jerry's trademark. Haynes also inserts some of his own lyrics which bugs me but maybe on this tour he won't sing. Just my humble opinion! "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"

Yea, everyone who lives in Greensboro better plan a vacation for that day. It will be crowded. It's a awful place to get into as well. But you know I'll be there. Can't wait till midnight monday to get some tickets. I won't sleep a bit that night. Stay cool guys, spring is around the corner.

One positive indicator regarding a summer tour is the fact that the websites for Ratdog and P & F (and Gov't Mule, for that matter) don't list any conflicting dates at this point. Then again, it's pretty early for ANY band to have locked-and-loaded their summer dates. In the meantime, all we can do, my friends, is catch as many of the spring shows as possible and be hopeful for more! Robust ticket sales for the spring dates should motivate any skeptical band members, so to paraphrase Richard Daley: buy early and buy often! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ One man gathers what another man spills...

This is what it's all about. The whole scene. Its so cool. The Tour. The pre-sale. The on-sale. How many shows? Who got what? How are we getting there? How many miles do we have to go? How are we going to pay for this? Who's the doo-dah man?.This is what makes up the Grateful Dead Vibe. Don't worry gather the Dead Vibe and it will do wonderful things. Beleive that there will be more shows and there will be. Beleive in more tix and there will be. Come on! What do you think? They're just gonna do 20 shows. This is just a warm up. In '03 they were only gonna get together (which was amazing enough)and do a few shows. And then, do a little tour. And then, look what happened. In '04 they played 40 shows jammed in between Allmans and Gov't Mule tours. Even though we like Warren, he is not the only one who can jam with the Dead. I'm sure theyre are a few "other ones" out there. No matter what it's always cool. plus Jerry is always watching. Hey, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong. Summertime done come and gone, my oh my. "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."

You said it perfectly. I, too, am totally enjoying all this pre-show energy. It is true that summertime done come and gone, but the time is always right for sunshine daydreams . . .

This is gonna be surreal. Two nights in Philly for me and some pals, also possibly going to hit the Wilkes-Barre stop. Too bad for work and school. F*in ball and chain. We made the State College show in October. Was one of the greater experiences I have had except for the cops tryin to run the parking lot. I'm hoping Philly will be a little less restrained. I'm definitely pumped though, and hoping to beat the rush at pre-sale. Do those e-mail alerts work?

wanted to tell anyone worrying to STOP! Have faith!! All good things in all good time. This board has been the most entertaining thing all week. I just started learning html and I'm basically stuck writing code everyday for the next 6 weeks, but man this makes the day go by so well. i mean the energy is SO high here sometimes i get confused in class and have to like...minimize the screen and spiral back down to my chair. Could be new years catching back up with me. But man, I am so fucking ready. Caught both new years shows with my girl (flew from boston, first time in SF.) and by the end of NYE all I could *think* about was when are we going to get the dead. (i'm addicted more so than ever after those two nights) As we were walking out i got handed a little black flyer that I almost threw out until i saw a spiraling stealie and THE DEAD SPRING TOUR 09! Started jumping up and down screaming high-fivin folks and a dude handed me a killer "I MISS JERRY" sticker. Goes nicely with the PHIL IT UP AND GET WEIR'D sticker i got before the show! Gonna try to scan that little flyer and post it. A Really nice mysterious design. Couldn't stop looking at it for the rest of the night. sorry for the ramble guys. i love talking about this beautful part of our human experience. Keeps me grateful. Have Love and Keep It - Patrick

Best line-up yet (IMO). I KNEW when I heard the Obama show that there would be a tour (or many). I actually remember saying they should tour as The Grateful Dead, because, that is what it sounded like. It is an unmistakable sound. "Long train running from coast to coast Bringing home a party when you need it the most Work on the box car, beat on the bell Nothing else shaking so you might just as well." Thank you Boys!!! P.S. (Can you pleeeeease get Hunter to open!!!!!????!!!!!)

Yes... yes... yes. I'll be at Shoreline with my mom and dad - my wife, who's never been to a Dead show - and my one year old son. It'll make us three generations deep of Deadheads, and I wouldn't have it any other way. RIP Mr. Garcia
