The band says Happy New Year with an announcement of almost twenty shows in April and May. More details to come!
I am flying into SF that weekend where I have rented a room near Union Sq. I am looking for a ride down to Mts View. As I look at a map, I see it's a ways. Is there any public transportation? Is it more convenient to rent a room down in the south bay or stay in the city and just attend the concert? help
yes it is mostly garage parking....there is a couple of small privatley owned lots that allow for a shakedown..most of them charge like $20 event parking...you can get there anytime to park and set up if you need to.....however the garage diagnolly to the north east is the only place i haven't seen a police presence...becareful everyone the worcester police do not like us...they are very quick to react and will use there batons..happy show everyone
I used to live in the bay area, and the best public trans option is to take caltrain- not sure if there's a station near Union Sq. or near shoreline, so check out the locations on their website. (www.caltrain dot com) It would probably be easier to just stay somewhere near shoreline, but I personally love wandering around San Francisco, so if you have the time I'd stay there.
In the Streets Forum but I'm the only who's posted over there so maybe I"ll get a better turn out here. Anyone know what's up with the Forum in LA? I know there's no tailgating, but I"ve been to tons of venues that say no tailgating, but yet it still happens :o). It's still 5 weeks away but I"m trying to figure out where everyone's going to be...I'd love to meet up with some of my cyber friends from here. Anyone have any input? I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~Tam
Thanks everybody for your kind words & info!!! Just Cant Wait!!!
Nothing left to do but smile smile smile................

Southern Tam - would be cool to put some kind faces with the cyber chat I will be driving to Long Beach directly after the Denver show - pray I don't fall asleep at the wheel. I'm readin' lot's of bad things about da Inglehood po' po's in the LA times but then again they ain't never been to friendly w/ the heads any how. Let me know if you figure out a time an place to hook up. I go to the hospital tomorrow to get an insulin pump for the diabetes.

only 4 more days!! How time flies when your waiting for a tour to start. I saw the GD 3 times, 89' & 95', all at RFK. But I really got on the bus in 96', started doing mini tours. Furthur, Other ones, The Dead. Walking out of the Atlanta show in 04' I never thought I would have to wait this long for another show. Have seen Ratdog and P&F plenty of times, and they are both great. But it doesnt compare with seeing the boys together, thats where its at for me. I really think this will be a special tour (without a doubt for me personally). There has always been some naysayers and gripers before every tour. Though this year seems to be quite a bit more. I know alot of it has to do with the ticket prices and I can understand folks pain. Though once youve hacked threw the red tape, get to the show, lights go down, music starts and everything else will wash away. Phil has talked about the fans "completing the circuit". Just as important as what the band does, what we do will determine how great these shows will be. Hope everybody brings that positive energy with them, I know I will. See you at Greensboro, DC, C'ville, Philly x2.
In tip top touring condition? Stocked up and topped off? Ready to get your freak on? See you in the sweet bye & bye... New ones coming as the old ones go Everything is moving here, but much too slow now A little bit quicker and we might have time To say how do you do before we're left behind Thanks for the time warp/flashback dead.net!
I've heard the same thing, and Inglewood is the ghetto, let me tell you. My dad lives up near there and forbid me to stay right by the venue - keep in mind I"m 34 lol. He recommended staying at the Mariott by the Airport which is still pretty close. And we were planning on walking to the show and back but from what I"ve heard, that's not a good idea. I'm still debating on driving into the lot, especially if we can't even tailgate. I'll keep you posted on anything I hear, I jsut want to be able to meet up with some peeps for a pre-party celebration. Good luck at the doc and take care of yourself! You gotta get nice and healthy for the shows!!!! ~Tam
Back to the now again... BBzzUupp Zuupp ZuPP....... Peace- Moye
Does anyone know anything about tailgating in Denver? We are staying close enough to the venue to walk, but I was hoping for a little parking lot action before the show:)Got my email this morning about the tickets being on the way!!!! Let there be songs to fill the air :) :) :)
The Metro State College parking lots will be crazy! I am excited that my Denver pre-sale tickets are finally on their way! "When the smoke has cleared she said, that's what she said to me. You're gonna want a bed to lay your head and a little sympathy"
I'm heading down to Philly for both shows. I was wondering if anyone with Spectrum experience can attest to the parking lot scene? I've been to a few ratdog/phil shows the past few years and get mixed results in different cities. How are the cops in Philly for these types of events? I notice the Phillies/Mets are playing a 3:40 game on the Saturday. Should be a crazy scene.
I'm hittn both nights in Philly too. Never been to the spectrum, how are the lots? Peace- Moye
Just got my ticket in the mail!!!Cinco de Mayo cant come soon enough!!!
Just heard Phish is doing Good Ole Fenway Park at the end of may..... I dont really get into them that much but that might be worth checkin' out!!!! Go SOX!!! Off to a good start!!!!!:-)

PLEASE HELP I CAN GO ANYTIME FROM FRI MORNING TO DAY OF SHOW!!!desperate deadhead "when the going gets weird, the weird turn PRO" -Hunter S Thompson
Already counting the days to shake my bones... Last time myself and the crew went up we got bunked ... take that elsewhere .. people need to get the real deal ... like the positive vibes .. we are children from the same family and you wouldn't do that to your own. God bless the ones who tolerate me and let the grown -ups outside the gates and let us crazys do what we do best. Phatmoye and friends, I'm started packing for the show. kottonmouthjeff__
I have been reading today some of the older messages and I have to say I am sick! I cannot believe the shit I’m hearing. Everyone can have their opinion so I will have mine. The bitching and moaning over ticket prices? Sure the dead have most always been one of the more reasonable priced tickets but instead of crying about it and crapping on the band maybe think to yourself for one moment……they have done so much over the years for so little that just maybe there is a good reason. Ya I was surprised by the price but instead of throwing an ungrateful pile of shit in their face I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt and believe there is a reason they did what they did and it may just be none of our business. Oh and by the way when you buy that $50 to $75 ticket to most other bands remember you’re probably going to see a 2 hour concert not a 4 hour show. For the people bashing on GDTS TOO you don’t have a clue. I over the years have ordered more tickets from them than anywhere else and was NEVER let down. GDTS TOO has worked hard to offer us all something…. An alternative to Ticket-Bastard!! Now I have to here you cry about their inability to offer you instant gratification well go fuck yourself. To the person or persons who said in their post (referring to it being ok for individuals planning on going to the concerts just to party in the lot) “Phil if you really did write that then I'm sorry, I love you but shut the fuck up and just play good music.....leave the outside to us.....we can handle it.” Well I disagree it is absolutely the bands responsibility to be concerned with the lot and what goes on in it. It has been proven that that people cannot handle it. Do you remember the 90’s? Well I do and it sure the fuck was not like the 80’s. I still have my Deer Creek ticket to a show that never happened due to fuckheads in the lot! Now I have no problem with someone on tour that didn’t have a ticket for a show along the way I can understand that but if you don’t have a ticket and you ‘re going just for the party DON’T your just fucking it up for everyone!!!! Finally for everyone out there with that groovy positive attitude hope to see ya in Chicago, Denver and California
On a lighter note - check out the new video released on the dead site of the taxi tour
Wooo! It's a good Dead day - got the Hartford discs in the post, started spinning disc one immediately as I'm opening my other mail.... "what the hell is this thing?" I'm saying to myself as I pull open the weird white bubble-wrapped package that also showed up, "feels pretty light..." AHA!!! My tix to Chicago, Denver, Shoreline! Beyond geeked, I am....
Wow ... all your tix in one package? I was wondering if I was going to be getting multiple packages... "When the smoke has cleared she said, that's what she said to me. You're gonna want a bed to lay your head and a little sympathy"
i need the pizza toppings for the charlotsville show, I cant wait to shake my bones
Just had to tell my little story of poetic justice... I work with this guy who all in all is a pretty cool guy but he's a bit of a "know it all" and he never stops talking and rarely lets you get a word in. Anyway he's alway's throwing little jabs at me about being a Deadhead and just tries to get under my skin( I usually just grin and give him that "I know something you dont know" look.) Here's an example: Me and this other guy were talking one day about when Jerry went into a diebetic coma and had to re-learn playing guitar,He butts in and says: "How come he did'nt learn how to play it right?" This is coming from a guy who thinks KISS is the greatest band ever!(What a clown!)(Who listens to clowns)(LOL) Anyway-Last week I was talking to my friend at work about the upcoming Dead shows and how expensive tickets were and how I could'nt go because I had to spend my ticket money on a lawyer to get custody of my step-kids who are in an unhappy home, and again he butts in with "How the hell can all those SCUMBAGS afford 100-200 dollar tickets?" This really burned me,I must admit- So I half-jokingly said-"HEY-Dont call my FAMILY scumbags!" So he say's "If They were really your family somebody would give you a ticket!! Well GUESS WHAT??? That was last friday and over the weekend is when I got miracled by someone on these pages!!!!! IN YOUR FACE, MOFO!!!!! Needless to say I walked into work monday with a huge shit-eatin' grin on my face and when he seen me he goes"What are YOU so happy about??" heeheehee :-)(-:
Yup, all in one fell swoop as they say, though I've never really figured out exactly what that means, nor who "they" are....
Just recieved email notification, our last set of tickets is shipping. YAHOOOOOOOO.... see you all in Albany, Buffalo, and two night in Philly.
First off, GRATEFULTWINZ!! Good for you. Second, the worst thing then KISS is KISS fans. I worked with a fan for 4 years, we never clicked. Third, I got my tickets to Philly for myself, kottonmouthjeff and our other 2 freinds. And with that note I say to myself, Philly, get ready!!! Peace- Moye
Garcia, was in fact a kind of Kiss fan. Known to hang backstage, friends with Ace Freehley, matter of fact, Jerry tought Ace to play new leads, and brushed him up on the pentatonic (sic) scales... after Garcia saw Kiss in the mid-70s, he said he wanted to be on the "Ace side" of the stage, hence the switch with Phil round about that time.
gettin' kinda excitin' ain't it?
Hey all, The kindness of a friend has blessed me with a car to drive from CT to Greensboro, but I do not know what me and my brother are going to do for tix. I am just a wanderer and I wandered back to my little piece of ground in my hometown(I know wrong band, but Floyd is sick too) and I was able to procure a car. A miracle would be much appreciated for this Head and his brother to be able to get into the Greensboro concert. I have been looking forward to it since I was in California and I heard the tour announcment. If I could be dancing in the streets with yall in Greensboro, I would be truely Grateful. Any stranger that wants to stop n shake my hand, and possible miracle a couple tix would be so appreciated. Until the 4 winds may safely blow u home Dan
I'm so freaking excited!!! What a way to start my thursday morning!!!! I can't wait!!!

well i am leaving tommorow for greensboro.. just want to wish everyone a happy tour and hope you get your wish set list...
to all headed for Greensboro! Fabulous story, Twinz.
has anyone recieved their Nassau MO Tkts yet? Received NJ last week and just curious on this show.
There has been a lot of chatter on here about the scene. We are wishing everybody a great and safe tour. A couple of weeks ago, this site was talking about what happened at the recent Phish shows. Please if your not really "into" The Dead, please RESPECT OUR SCENE. If (you) don't, (and you know who you are), this will never happen again. The experience should be remembered for all the great things that are about to happen, not the cpl of idiots that could bring it all down.........Thank You........Fellow DeadHeads
I apologize if this has been discussed on earlier pages, but does anyone know if downloads or CDs of the tour will be available? Are they bringing back munckmix or some other taping outfit? I haven't seen anything official, and the tour starts in a few days...
RatDog Live Bringing the Magic to Dead Tour"The guys who bring us RatDog Live - those stellar recordings mixed and burned to CD on the fly and available 10 minutes after show end - will be offering their talents on the upcoming Dead tour. A three-CD set of each Dead show will be available right after the show, so stop by the merchandise stands when you get to the venue. Only 500 will be available each night and they will not be available online afterward." "When the smoke has cleared she said, that's what she said to me. You're gonna want a bed to lay your head and a little sympathy"
I'll be sure to get my ass in line right after - I want one of the cd's!!!
Thanks for the quick update. Although, I must say selling only 500 isn't a very good way to make money. I'm sure they could sell many, many more than that. If they don't update that plan, there will certainly be some disappointed heads, myself included. It will suck if I can't get a few of the shows. I'm only gonna make it to the two Worcester shows. I was hoping to get quality recordings of the Branford Marsalis shows.
Hey all! I was checking out the latest in THE DEAD tour '09, and I saw this really cool website: www.charityfolks.com Right now they are auctioning VIP tickets to any of the dates of the tour. And the best part is that all the money they get goes to charity. How amazing is that! Here is the direct link to check it out more: http://www.charityfolks.com/cfauctions/artist_vertical.asp?artist_id=21…
To get a hold of the tour recordings. I wouldn't doubt if most if not all of the shows will end up as vines right here on dead.net. I mean the taxi tour NYC shows were vined less than a week after the show date. Ratdog Live makes the CD's right there at the show so they are I'm sure limited to how many CD's they can make in a short amount of time. I'm not totally sure how it works. The cool thing about Ratdog Live is that you can get a CD right then and there but hey I can wait a few weeks for "other" recordings to come out. "When the smoke has cleared she said, that's what she said to me. You're gonna want a bed to lay your head and a little sympathy"
If they had unlimited amount of CD's to sell but maybe that's not their intent?? "When the smoke has cleared she said, that's what she said to me. You're gonna want a bed to lay your head and a little sympathy"
OK, it's getting close enough to start counting down!(And I always thought it was pronounced Woosta :) You folks in Greensboro, don't forget to give us a post-show posting! Crickets and cicadas sing, a rare and different tune, Terrapin Station.
