    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."

They will give you a password to use to get tickets before they go on sale to the general public example .. If the password if Obama ... You would log onto Ticketmaster tommorrow and then insert the password where they ask for it and then purchase the tickets like you normally would..If you don't have a password it won't allow you to purchase tickets in advance

It will be real fun trying to wheel and deal tickets here at work where everyone and their mother can see my screen. I wish I could come in late tomorrow morning and just do everything from home. Oh well...guess it just adds to the excitement right?!?!?! Less than 24 hours to go!!!!

I'm toying with coming late as well...I have the time so it wouldn't be a prob, the only thing is that my home computer tends to lag and freeze up...not all the time but it would be luck to freeze up in the middle of a transaction. But the more I think about it, the more I"d like to just do it and get it done without having to minimize all my screens and worry about getting caught. Good idea Brother!

All bosses should let everyone come in late tomorrow or, use one of your best excuses of why you will be late or absent. I mean come on, this is a priority. Then, make sure you have all your excuses ready for the shows too. May the four winds blow you safely home.

Excellent choice...I should of taken today off also..I can't keep away from this site and I honestly can't wait until it is all said and done tommorrow and I know for sure if I get seats..There is alot of traffic on the forums which tells me even though not posting alot of people are getting tickets..Looking at other threads it doesn't seem as though there is alot of traffic on these forums but hopefully that will all change and people can state connected throughout the tour

GDTS too will accept mail order starting "postmarked" tom. and ending the 20th. No credit card orders this time for this tour, prices are posted there as well, is worth looking at. I'm gonna see what this presale stuff is all about here but will stick with ol faithful mailorder.

We should all just do mail order and leave ticketbastard scratching their heads. (i know its not possible but would be nice.) I guess I like knowing that my money is going directly to the dead, and not some bully. See you at the show! (was going to be more, now just one. but what a one it will be!!) :) Have Love and Keep It - Patrick

I believe they will e-mail us a password but in order to be safe I will also keep this forum open and also refresh that since I am sure as soon as it is made available someone will post it here

I know they're scalpers, but how can they sell tix that aren't even on sale to Deadheads yet? If you go there, you can actually select sections and rows and buy the tix. I tried (just for the heck of it) to see if I could buy tix for the Mountain View show and it let me go all the way to checkout. Weird. I will certainly wait until tomorrow! See you there.

The only downside to mail order is the interminable wait to find out if you got tickets and where they are (and for those in groups >4, the uncertainty about proximity to friends). Beyond that, mail order is reliable, peaceful, appealingly low-tech (to me, anyway), and perhaps more likely to result in good seats, in that fellow deadheads are processing your order rather than an impersonal piece of software that techheads undoubtedly understand WAY better than I do. Frankly, I'm skeptical that there will be an on-line pre-sale, but like many others here, I'm registered and will be prepared to do the 'plastic thang' if it looks reasonable. Otherwise, I'm confident that GDTS will get their share of the pile and have good tickets to dispense. Sure wish Ruby hadn't retired, though...she'd always took good care of us, particularly if we took a little time to decorate the envelopes a bit. In any case, gang, try not to let the prices ruin the moment. I know money's tight for most, but if $100 is too much yet $50 is okay, doncha think you'll find a way to make up the difference...somehow? Eating regularly is overrated, anyway ;-) ```````````````````````````````````````````````````````````` One man gathers what another man spills...

What you're seeing is the result of a sale strategy that almost all venues subscribe to. Essentially, a ticket agent purchases a block of tickets to ever event, guaranteeing the venue that it will move those seats, no matter what. The ticket agent is therefore able to offer those specific seats to any given event prior to the tickets actually going on sale. "When it comes to humility, I'm the greatest!" - Bullwinkle Moose

Aha! That makes a lot of sense. So, I'm guessing then that the seats you see listed on these scalper sites will not be made available to Dead fans when they go on sale tomorrow. Jeez, these guys run the world, don't they? Hoping I don't 'need a miracle' tomorrow. Aloha.

104 Users and 512 guests online right now !!!!! methinks tickets will go fast.. I joined the Rolling Stones fan so I could get the presale password for there last tour...I got on ASAP and still wound up in the nose bleeds..I asked there ticket rep if there was really anything left for when they went on sale to the public and he laughed and basically said no.We should all be thankful that they didn't make us pay to join the fan club in order to get the presale password.. Alot of bands do that to make aditional money

Duh camping in NYC is not a option. its a great way to meet the NYPD, same for Central Park- a big NO NO, unless you want to see Riker's Island. Peace out

If you order [2] tickets thru Mail Order, will they be next to each other, or split up? Thanks

DarkStar77 - I think you may be correct. I saw a post earlier in this forum that said it would be 9:00 WEST COAST, which if you're in central makes you 11 am, and me on the least coast at NOON. Gotta say here that I almost dropped my guitar when I saw the prices. Was going to take my 20 yr old son to L.I., MSG, IZODS, and the Spectrums (I'm 25 miles south), but I may have to drop off Nassau and MSG.

Are you kidding?ADDITIONAL MONEY?These prices make them just like every other tired old no longer original membered band that overcharges for the tickets to their shows!$99 for a ticket to the Spectrum?When the schedule came out we were going to go to like 5 shows at least(just like in the past) but with these prices that would be $500/person.How can anyone afford to do multiple shows? For the price of 2 shows we could almost buy Bonnaroo or Rothbury tix and see SO many bands(and the Dead may even be there too)We have just decided to skip this money grab and be happy with the Great Memories of tours past. - Weav

Hey guys and girls, This is my first post so I hope its not a dumb question, but I was wondering if anyone knows of any possibility of another Dead tour, maybe even a continuation of this one during the summer. I want to buy tickets but the two days they're in my area (PA) I have my finals so I can't make the shows in good conscience. Any news at all, even some unsubstantiated rumors would make me feel a little better, haha. Thanks.
