    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...

    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."

I heard from my brother who, was with me in albany, that tonights show in buffalo was night and day compared to albany. He called me at work during the set break and said the Dead were ripping and down to business. Wish i saw that show. the setlist looks awesome. Anybody got a review from buffalo?

Was amazing! Great vibes all through the Shakedown across from the DCU. The music was tight, the crowd was just a sea of positive energy. Security was at a bare minimum. I think that about sums it up :-).

From what i understand, T Gore went to Congress to urge 'Warning Labels' to be put on explicit material..she wasn't out to censor the music.... Touchy subject, but i see both sides of the coin...

I remember when Tipper was second lady and Mickey used to visit the White House to give her drumming lessons. How cool was that? And, does anyone remember her at the opening ceremony for the Atlanta Olympics when she sat by Al's side as he grooved with Mickey's performance? And, as I write this on Earth Day, more than a tip of my hat, I say hat's off, to her for giving Al the idea to create a companion book for his slide show, which ended up getting his climate message out to an even wider audience. It was great to see some Deadhead DC royalty up on that stage. I figure she was Obama's ambassador of Dead. We're everywhere. No doubt about it.

April 23, (Earth Day plus 1), tune into CBS to see The Dead sitting-in with Dave and Paul Schaefer. Pull out the Closing of Winterland video and check out the Blues Brothers gig, and see if you recognize the keyboardist.

...Yeah, The whole scene at Worc. Sun. night was sweet- My wife and I arrived real early(11:30) and found a real cool lot right next to the DCU and it was already buzzing with Tourheads setting up shop(nice) We met tons of cool people and the weather was sweet! It was my wife's first REAL Dead show and she kept sayin' "This is so cool,No wonder you always went to The Dead" Sorry to say though-She liked the show,But she was'nt really down w/the early 60's stuff they played or the long jams(Both of which I LOVED) She was like, "I liked "Uncle John's Band" and "Fire on the mountain" and "Good Lovin"... But not all the "long jamming"..In her defense though, She's used to concerts where the band plays all their "hits" every night...(BORING).. But I said "Hun, That's not what The Dead is all about...It's about exploration of music and mind, and new discoveries."......Long silence.....Weird look...Then,"Well I liked "Uncle John's Band" HaHaHa!!!! Oh well, Ya' cant win 'em all !!! :-)(-: Next Stop-RATDOG Hampton Beach This July...This time maybe she'll GET SHOWN THE LIGHT........P.S. Thank-you D&K for a wonderful time in Worcester....It TRULY was magical..............Peace. ♪♪♪♪:-)

Same lot we were at, we stayed at the Hilton so we had a clear view before we even headed down. We probably crossed paths several times. We are going to see Bob Weir-RatDog at the Festival Up North in Aug. I am trying to get a feel on the scene there though. So many friggin rules listed on their website. I am wondering if it is just a CYA situation or if they are really that strict.

Haa thats great! I had to chuckle .. Reminds me of my wife. She's a great sport and she has warmed up to the music and enjoys the shows and the scene but still to this day she still doesn't "get it". She wants me to take her to Reo Speedwagon and Styx... uhhh yeah sure I say... :-) Oh and 38 special let's not forget them they'll be there too :-) "When the smoke has cleared she said, that's what she said to me.

To those of you who haven't heard the 4/19 Worcester show -- give it a listen. It was a monster. And to those who don't like it: guys, if you don't like this, I'm not sure the band will play anything on the tour that you will like.

Will there be a parking lot scene for the show this Sunday? Or are we stuck with a parking structure? It is supposed to be a beautiful day.

Being a veteran of many shows at the Coliseum, last night was amazing. Just the scene in the lot was trans-splendid. Vending, partying, drumming and everyone was cool... even the police. They sat there, on horseback, and just smiled. Every scalper was selling seats at half box office price. Karma's a bitch, dude. The show jammed out. Lost Sailor Easy Wind fucking brilliant. Kudos out to everyone for making it a Grateful Dead experience. Truly a high time for one and all. Peace and Love. Tell me this town ain't got no heart You just got to poke around "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."

They were selling singles and pairs you couldn't walk around without someone selling tix. A lot of heads chewed them down to $100 a pair. Sweet! But he band just kept on playing We forgot about the time "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."

This is the only show I could make this year, by some miracle or miracles . The reviews have been sweet, as well as the set lists. Not to put down anyone, but the UNCOOL and UNKIND ones please keep the good times roll. Leave the bunk in the trunk. Seriously if a DEADHEAD ruled the world or even advised this wonderful country we belong to, why would u take your family for a fool. Need to shake my bones and take in all the love. Like I told you, like I say,,Steal Your Face right off your head. See ya soon, my genuine family. Kottonmouthjeff

Went to the Worcester shows with wife and friend. He paid $100 for some plain white blotter from someone that "looked" like a head, talked like a head, and appeared to be honest, but alas, it was bunk.What a bummer, not only did he trust that he was going to get something good to enhance the time at the show, he is out $100! I know that's the chances one takes, but unlike the "old" days, the costs have gone up so you feel the loss that much more.

I can remember back in 98, I never had any trouble with "enhancing" my shows on further tour. I'm beginning to think that the LUV has left the lot.... I hope I run into this guy in Philly!!! I know exactly what this asshole looks like, chances of that are slim to none tho.Peace- Moye

I've got the Jersey & Philly shows coming up. My buddy is joining us for those ones too, and it probably would not be a good scene to run into that "wolf" as he would just as soon give him a $100 worth of ass whoop! In a way I would love to see him get a beating, the crook, but wouldn't want to have to deal with any possible arrests as that would be insult to injury!I guess the "grateful family" has been infiltrated by those that have no problem thieving. I know they have always been out there, but it definitely becomes more personal when they burn you! ! What it ends up doing in the end, sadly, is make it hard to trust the next person.

I feel what ur saying man, im not a violent person by any meens, but yeah man, your right, it does make it hard to trust anybody on this tour. I don't even want the guys ass beat, I just want my buddys $160.00 back!! Hell, with $160.00 I could of got another floore seat for Chitown shows and a concert shirt. Ive had more luck with DSO shows then this tour so far. Oh well, its all about the music anyway. EVERYBODY!!! Watch each card you lay and play it slow.Peace- Moye

I got burned many years ago on a sheet (when ya could still afford to buy one) and the taste has never left my mouth but what are ya gonna do except know the world is round and "what comes around goes around". Thanks for keeping us informed (for those of us who still do) because " knowing is half the battle". in 2004 I met a guy at deer creek before the show with some of the sweetest liquid ever !!! If your out there man its the guy from chi town I hope to see ya :>

Hi- Here's the deal. I'm a taper and have a taper ticket for both nights at Izod in NJ. I have floor tickets to get my wife and kids onto the floor with me on Tuesday but not Wednesday (they're 5 & 3 and she's pregnant) so I need them to be close to me. I need to trade my 3 regular tickets for Wednesday for 3 floor tickets. They can be ANYWHERE on the floor (the further back, the better for me). The 3 regular tickets I have are in Section 122 which are RIGHT ON THE SIDE near the stage! These are MUCH better seats than the back of the floor. Of course, I will hook you up w/ copies of the shows from Nassau, MSG, the 2 nights of NJ and the 2 nights of Philly (the 6 I went/am going). Please let me know asap!! Thanks!!
