    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"

    I suppose it says something that wrinkle cream is now considered an indispensable tour accoutrement. Wrinkle cream spam deleted...

    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!

After what I saw at those three shows last night, missing this tour is at your own peril. They were on, and they were hot! Go to as many shows as you can realistically put together, but make sure you get to at least one. Turn on your light, you won't regret it! Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

WOW!! Finally made time to watch the Bob and Phil show, (on The View of all places)! the strangest of places. Was it just me or did the boys seem a little nervous? They're just not used to daytime TV! HA! HA! Overall though outstanding performance, I loved the acoustic version of FOTD. The View girls didn't quite do their research though, how dare Joy Behar get Jerry's exit date wrong!!!! Always knew she was a few shy of a sixpack!!! Nice of the boys to make a public appearance though, what a treat for the non deadheads to get a taste of pure peace, love and music!!! Maybe they will come back for more!!! For the rest of us it was just an appetizer for the main course, I will get my slice at Roseland 5/5 and I can't wait!!! See you all there!!!! Peace!! @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ May the Four Winds Blow You Safely Home... I Miss Jerry

Didn't have the privilege of bein in NY last night, but I just finished listening to Roseland a couple of times, and after reading reviews on Philzone (bashing for the most part) I was pleasantly surprised. That was one hot show! People are bitchin that Bobby flubbed some lyrics and was speaking lyrics instead of singing. Hell he was flubbin lyrics in his prime. I always loved it! Good for a laugh and a memory. The mere fact he can remember most of the words to Desolation Row and She Belongs to Me is a super human feat. Dylan cant remember all the words and he wrote em. True he was changin the phrasing a little much, but like he said during the NYE run, “It's a work in progress” And of course the ever present complaints about Phils vocals. Who cares!! Never was his strong suit. As long as he at 69 years of age can still thump that thing the way he does, I don't care if he sings like William Hung. And they were cappin on his new bass too. Callin it the Wall Mart toy. I admit when I saw it back in December I thought it looked like a Guitar Hero prop, but he dropped a couple of bombs last night that rival his Alembic of the 70s (my fave). And of course talkin bout Bobby's weight. Again, who cares! Does anyone really want to see him in hot pants and a pink Lacrosse polo shirt anymore anyway (I didn't back then). That was midlife crisis at its finest! (LOL) The little teenyboppers in the first couple of rows were lovin it back then. I was happy to see from the balcony on New Years that he has the same bald spot as me. Someone even went as far as to say he thinks he's Jerry now or some such nonsense. Last night was the equivalent of the Valentines Day Warm up they did at the Warfield before they hit the road in 03. I listened to that again recently and it wasn't nearly what I remembered. Kinda like an old Volkswagen that needed some work. Bt the time they got back round to Bay Area it was a classic. Finely tuned and polished. What I heard from last nights shows was a freakin Lamborghini that needs a couple of pounds less air out of the tires so it hugs the road better an maybe tweak the supercharger. This tour is gonna be the sh*t!!!! ♪♪♪ On the road again, show as ya bown ♪♪♪

Man, I couldn't agree with yiou more. So what if Bobby put on a few pounds, hes still jammin on the stage. Bobby forgot some of the lyrics at the Penn show too, but I didn't care. And yes man, if the spring tour is anything like the Penn show, OH YEAH, were all in for a real good time. There will never be another Jerry and I personaly don't think Bobbys trying to fill his shoes. I'm just happy to hear them all together jammin with Warren. Peace- Moye

the first time i ever saw The Dead they played as the other ones at the spectrum in 03. my home town is philly and im around right now, but ive been pretty locked up with bills latly and a hefty speeding ticket i got in hampton va last month. did anyone on here go to the NY lotto shows? im not a huge warren fan, i wish herring had more time away from wsp. Is the two night run in may going to be one of the epic shows to bring down the spectrum? or more of a naustalgic (sp its late) farewell? the ticket price is really killing me, do you friendly folk think im going to hurt more by not going to the show more then the deep effect its going to have on my next part time pay check? hope everyone has a good time this month! ***and the whistle is screaming***

Come on man, its the DEAD!! Yeah dude go yo the show!! Ill meet you in the lot brother. Paychecks come around every week or two. The dead come around once in a grateful while. Do the right thing, try and squeeze in atleast 1 of the nights at the spectrum. If you cant, I understand, but dude, its the DEAD!! Peace- Moye

>As long as he at 69 years of age can still thump that thing the way he does, I don't care if he sings like William Hung. PRICELESS! I'm not such a fan of his new bass either. It looks like the dark counterpart to the axe of the parody guitar hero in the White Gold milk commercials. And the flashing blue lights, c'mon. But as Other so wisely points out, it's the sound, not the visuals.

Was Phil moonlighting in Gwar?

If anyone wants to check it out in excruciating detail you can do so here. Are the blue LED's kinda cheesy? Well, maybe just a bit. But the Eye of Ra inlay at the 12th fret is a nice touch. And I'd have to guess that given the relatively small body size it probably weighs a touch less than say, the trusty Alembic. There could come a point where things like that might matter. Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

Hey, my 16 year-old son thought Phil's bass was "really cool" when we saw Phil at Nokia. That must count for something! Also, the man is still a total genius and was kickin' butt all night Monday. He looks pretty good, too. I will gladly suffer through some of his singing in order to hear him drop bombs and basically lead the group to where he wants to take it.

Yeah I just got to watch the boys on my DVR on the view- I agree,you would think that annoying hen JOY would do a little research before interviewing two of rock's most legendary people! Whoopie did'nt do much better,but no-one ever claimed she was a genius(ever see sister-act?)LOL!! Anyhoo,To the matter at hand-The guys sounded SWEET!!! The acoustic FOTD was an awesome choice,I love the new lyric by Phil(is that new?) And Bobby+Warren harmonized beautifully together. Does anyone know if there are any acoustic sets planned? And are they appearing on anymore TV shows? P.S. yeah Bobby has packed on a few, but who gives a F#%*????

Hi folks! I just wanted to let everybody know that I made a video of clips from Roseland, 3.30.09, in NYC. It's about 13 minutes long and it's pretty good because I was right in the front row! Hope you enjoy! <3, Alicina

I think there's a problem. Youtube says "This video is unavailable." Isn't 13 minutes over their maximum run length? Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

The boys on David Letterman. I say let em go on whatever talk show they want, at least Whoopi said nice things about them, and if they gain a few more heads on the bus, then it was worth it.

I can imagine Simon.... "Phil, simply horrible, just dreadful Phil" Of course I on the other hand would have to disagree with simon as usual. I guess in a way tho, the dead are my American idols.Think i'll DVR it as well... Just in case. Peace- Moye

U know i have been out of it a few years. The first show i caught after jerry passed was when i went to texas to see willie nelson, i didnt even know the dead were gonna be there,lol, but i sure was happy. After that i went to bonnaroo which was great fun and red rocks ( smoking shows) and the rest of the tour in 04 i think it was. Also caught some ratdog and phil in new orleans at the jazz fest 1 year and jackies b-day at the warfield was amazing. This 2009 tour is so exciting, i have never been happier than when i am dancing at a dead show and this tour will be great. Leaving San diego to hitchhike to n.c tomorrow, I hope i see u all there.

It would mean alot to me if everyone would say a prayer for my daughter Cassidy,(age 3) who's in the hospital right now with a UTI-(urinary track infection) We brought her to the ER around midnight after her fever would'nt break and she was crying alot- I was there all afternoon yesterday and the poor little thing had an IV and stuff sticking in her arm-But I think she's gonna be fine-when she woke up she was laughing and playing and being her happy little self!! I know this is off-topic,but every prayer helps-especially from cool,positive people like my extended Deadhed family,Thank-You,George :-)

My little niece had the same thing a month or so ago. Once she got into the doctor it cleared up fairly quick but I feel for you. Nothing is more sad than a little one in the hospital not feeling good. "When the smoke has cleared she said, that's what she said to me.

Does anyone know if Candace will be doing the lighting scheme for the tour? The Dead are to appear on Letterman one of the days when they're in NYC on tour. And prayers to you, your daughter and family for healing of her ailment...Peace, Steve

Nothin but positive vibes for your family man. I'm sure once this tour starts, there will be lots of tapers posting shows. Maybe they'll start a vine or i'm almost sure that we'll be able to download the shows from some website. MarkintheDark or Caynon Critter might be able to give you more info on this then I would, they seem to know there stuff when it comes to this sort of thing. Peace- Moye

Positive vibes goin' out to you and your family! I had to have the paramedics take me to the ER about 1am on Mon as I couldn't quit' bein' sick - nausea plus the trubo squirts. My heart rate wouldn't come down either - got real ugly real fast for me and the diabetes. I am still not 100% yet either. My prayers are with your lil' one hope she gets well soon.

Our thoughts are with you- I have a three year old daughter too, and I know how worrisome it can be when they get sick. Kids are tough though, and with good medical care and lots of hugs, will be up and running in no time! I recorded 'The View' the other day, and now my little girl keeps begging me to play 'the new song on TV' over and over ! No Problem I say !! How cute !
