    Owsley how is the progress on the phish and dead shows coming with your bro?

    We should do our own "book club" through the catalog.

    So do we think they're just going to add one other run in the bay area, or multiple. Because I've seen multiple rumors of a couple NY shows as well as a Boston/Philly and Red Rocks. Even a possible Bonnaroo.

    Some of those are not the full lineup though. I've seen John Mayer, Schools, and some other names thrown in.

    No thanks on the John Mayer, too bluesy for the music. I'm not sure the point of Schools? Do they all hate Weir?

    Extra shows besides the Chicago run would be lame as hell and even more of a money grab :twocents: I'm completely against it.

    Not going to make Chicago, unfortunately. Will be at both nights of Atlanta and Tuscaloosa for sure, and maybe Nashville as well. I'll also probably wind up going to Magnaball since it is in all likelihood their last festival.

    Disagree. I don't care about it being a money grab. What I really wish they had done was just announced about 5-7 2 or 3 night runs in different cities across the country to begin with. But I'll take anything that makes it more likely I can see a show.

    I don't get the concept of calling it a "cash grab." Weir and Lesh are both worth more than 30 million and isn't rock-n-roll about making money?

    Still disagree on the cash grab idea. And if it's about music and the experience they should hit certain geographic points to allow more to experience it

    If they're adding more dates, then that's a clear sign of a cash grab to me. I don't even think the music (which I imagine will be average to slightly above) is what's going to make this thing so special. It's the experience, and it should be one final run, not some mini-tour with a bunch of rotating fillers.

    I look at it differently. I think they underestimated the demand that the Chicago shows would generate. A lot of fans were left out, so adding a few more shows in other locales makes perfect sense.

    . . . now if they announce a new The Other Ones tour after Chicago, then I'm with you.

    Good lowered...Why not put in a request for 4 best available tickets for each date and hope you get tickets to just one.

    Granted it's the last date in Chicago, but GA Pit tickets start at $2,100 for Sunday.

    Now that's a cash grab.

    I was at that Three Rivers show as well. The year before they played the old Civic Arena and cops arrested everyone in sight (didn't go to that one). Pittsburgh's mayor at the time declared that the Dead were banned from Pittsburgh, of course, until they played an even larger show the next Summer at Three Rivers.

    The best Buckeye Lake show I attended was the last show of the Summer Tour on July 1, 1992.

    Sophie Masloff was the mayor and she called deadheads "deadenders"
    :laugh:
    Yes, the 89 shows were chaos down there but were musically hot as shit (I was like 15 or something at the time and did not go, but of course had the tapes. Just about everything in 89 was good). Cops beat the shit out of everything that moved outside...

    And yes, the Dead were banned from Pgh... until the following summer because :rain:talks. Interestingly enough that show did not sell out. I can't remember if it was where the show was in the tour or if some heads didn't show up because of how ugly the scene was the year prior or some combination... but it wasn't a sell out.

    My last Dead show was also at Three Rivers in 1995. Show was pretty awful... Jerry was on death's door, a head jumped to his death from the stadium, and someone OD'd in the parking lot.

    Anyway, on to happier things... This date in 1967: https://archive.org/details/gd67-05-05.sbs.yerys.1595.sbeok.shnf
