I live in New Jersey which

I live in New Jersey which has always legal scalping called ticket brokers. Back then I worked as a casino dealer and could'nt buy tickets in advance because of scheduling. the brokers back in the 80's would sell me $20.00 tickets for 25-30 dollars because of my situation they were the only
way I could go to a show without buying on the street only to find it was counterfeit! Here in
the present I sent in for three nights in Chicago mail order any price, any night and they mailed me three nights for $55 dollars a night. That was a true Miracle and I enjoyed the hell out of it.
after that I've been shut out of every text advance I go on line 1 second after they are released to the public and I get sent to Ticket Bastard's own ticket broker and I get a ticket in the rafters for $100.00 plus shipping and handling and then print the damn things myself only to be charged 150 a pop that is a monopoly or mafia style loan sharking or whatever you want to call it.
I have been going to shows since tickets where 4 bucks and ticketron charged an outrageous fee of 2 quarters for printing them and handing them to you.I can't afford to keep playing $150.00 a show
so we can band together and fight by way of all writing are elected officials or we can start paying $500.00 a show if we don't this is not the Dead's fault they have always did what ever they could to help but they are to old to fight are battle's. this is corporate greed getting worse every day! I hope enough people read this and write their congressmen and ever other political prick in your area there is strength in numbers.
thanks for reading,

bring back Jerry

After Jerry died everything got expensive. In the 1990's I was paying $22-$27.50 for a concert with JERRY GARCIA playing guitar and singing. Seems like the prices should have gone down since the shows are no where near like a Grateful Dead w/ Jerry show. Jerry wasnt greedy, just wanted to play. Dead.net is just a buisness and these $100 shows shows that even the shows are just money making crap. Jerry's spirit is not here. Thank god for archive.org

Phil and Bob Tour.

Wondering why, we don't see anything out of Weir's Tri-Studios. All the gear is there. Would gladly do a pay per view. Bring Holly Bowling too.

maybe we were just lucky?

in for the wang in the orchestra.
we were able to get tix for Shoreline July 3. granted we did the CID thing but we are in, something like 10th row.
sorry to those that were shut out, we missed out on Fare Thee Well Chicago but again did the CID for Santa Clara and had no trouble.
sour grapes comments here are a drag, not to speak of karma killers

Radio City Tix

I too had everything in place at 10 AM. Verified Fan Code, Credit Card, countdown......I gues I was lucky to get 2 in the 3rd mezzanine! Tried to get 2 more at 10:03, SHUT OUT. There has to be a better way. Mail order HAS to work, but I guess it takes too much manpower to physically go through tens of thousands of envelopes and deciding who gets what.
