If I can figure a way around the $55 lawn tix (ridiculous price for lawn if you ask me), then I might hit ATL at the end of July.

Actually, face for lawn is in the mid-to-upper 40s, but add in TM charges and it's about $55. Interestingly, reserved was only $10 more....but even for front-row that's too much for me. I'm not a huge Dead fan, but I do love Jimmy's playing and would love to support our hometown (albeit transplant) boy. I woulda jumped on lawn if they were in the $20s - like the ABB charges here.

I will be at PNC! So far I only have tix for the tuesday show. Anyone know if Winwood is playing a full set as opener? The ticket says the show starts at 5 pm?? Seems awfully early.. My tix were 48.50, a bit much for lawn, but hey, its THE DEAD!!

The lawn tickets around here dropped to $20 for most shows this summer but are costing $32 with the rip off charge from TM.
I got the lawn tickets for ABB in August because I bring my daughter to the shows, too loud for her in the pavilion.
I am not planning on any of The Dead shows as of yet.

a Friend bought me a ticket for the Atlanta show on July 31st..which is my birthday.

a year and a half ago...I could not stand the Grateful Dead...I thought they were the most boring band ever. I thought "Trucking" was their only claim to fame. Mostly because I would not even give the music a try. This dude from Michigan..started sending me little snippets of music on CD...some live and some studio. Now I have at least 20 Dead shows counting my "Dicks Picks". I have around 10 Phil and friends. In my living room I now have a big framed picture of Pigpen and Jerry..that has a track light beaming on it. I have 3 DVD's of theirs and I'm all over any shows I can get.

Funny how things change..I would love to have seen them with Jerry..when he died I felt sorry for him, his family and fans..but it had no overwhelming effect on me. If it was now I would have cried.

Awesome music and shows by a GREAT band.

The Dead are playing Summerfest in Milwaukee with Willie Nelson, and a racetrack in Joliet with Bob Dylan. Summerfest will probably be too crowded and crazy, and the racetrack in August with no cover will be very very hot...

So I may not venture out to see them, although I would like too.

its the Tweeter Center Saturday June 28 for me and Mr. XX - too bad the Brothers are playing down A/C that day and i can't spend it with my Sweeties.....

however, since i'm seeing the ABB 8/1 i guess i'm getting the best of both worlds....

funny thing about me and the Grateful Dead.......i had never heard any of their music until "Touch of Grey" (oh the horror!).....simply because you never heard them on the radio. I used to think that they must have been some really heavy metal band because of all the skulls and roses and stuff. boy, how wrong i was and how happy i was to find out just what the are all about.

Workingman's Dead brought me to tears the first time i heard it - circa 1990.....i've been a dead head ever since.

touch of grey is a good song, however.. its totally not them.. the video was creative in a way, but still, they weren't really about making popular songs and airing them on music video channels.. anyway, the Dead are playing at Bonnaroo for 2 nights. They will also be at PNC Bank. I chose not to go to that show, because i'm going to the ABB show instead.. good choice huh?!

I used to be the biggest metalhead around. Hated, absolutely hated them. Then about 11 years ago 6/14/92(i'm still looking for that show..GRRR), my friends sister, who is huge Deadhead, had her friends bail on her, and offered us free beer and other things . All we had to do was pay for the ticket. Sounded like a fair deal, so we went from making fun of everyone there to actually enjoying it <- I was that shocked. Any way, to sum this up, that week I went and bought American Beauty and Workingmans Dead. I popped in AB, listened to Box Of Rain and was totally hooked. Still like to bang my head every once in awhile, though

Ahhh the Dead

Things have never been the same for me since I discovered the Dead(89-90), which led to me liking the ABB, which I thought was too country.Once I saw them in 94 my perception was changed, and emas eht neeb reven evah sgniht.

They played "The Wheel". The show is a little past my bedtime so I taped it and watched it this morning. Pretty cool.

this deadhead is going to SPAC, Vernon Downs, and Darrien Lake. wanted to go the Bonnaroo NE but $189+ little too steep for me. no ABB in the area this year. kinda bummed. "They're a band beyond description...."

I initially hated the Dead too when I was younger. A lot of my family and friends were always big deadheads, and I was always a major music junkie. They never understood why I didn't like them. But they'd play me these mid-80's audience tapes where the vocals were not blending and out of tune, the drums were out of time and say "I don't see how you can't like this." Now I'm a huge fan now as well. Although unlike many converts, I didn't get "it" at a show. I went to a show and had a blast, but it still didn't click. I finally got "it" later, listening to Europe '72 and then various tapes. I since have collected tons of shows. I'm one of those people who buys every Dix Pix as soon as it comes out. I also, incidentally really enjoy all eras of the Dead. And I really really enjoy the current Other Ones/Dead lineup, although I really see it as a "new" band, not the Grateful Dead, but frankly I enjoy it just as much. I'm still a much bigger ABB fan, though! hee hee. (Incidentally, my wife and I met in a Grateful Dead chat room in early 1996).

ahh the grateful dead, the amount of abuse i've taken over the last twenty five years
about being a deadhead or hippie could fill a stadium. first, i'm not really a hippie in any sense and that bugged me about the people who already had the wrong impression of the band. sure that was the primary group of folks that liked the band, but there were those of us that didn't drop out and we enjoyed the jams also.
it was chinacat sunflower/i know you rider off of europe 72 that turned my ear around.
it was worcester centrum 1983 that turned my eyes to the heavens.
it was jessica and dreams that turned my allman ears on and the cape cod colesium in 1980 when i first layed eyes on mr. allman.
to like both of these bands is to have a special insight. it is not to follow any trend by digging these bands. it is just pure music stretched out to the limits of the imaginations.
true improvisation and on some nights either one of these bands touch the stars. plus. they let us tape their shows as the best souviner ever.
