    I've got tickets to see Willie Nelson open and the Dead headline. I can't wait. I saw the Grateful Dead in Chicago in 1992, and loved it. Anyone see them yet, this year?

    No but the 2nd set at Bonnaroo was Jerry's last setlist backwards. I'm a huge fan of jambands ,particularly Phish, but prefer Jerry and Dave jamming together anyday over the dead but the dead are still awesome.

    I went and saw The Other Ones in December at Henry J Kaiser. It was the end of the fall tour and it was a couple of months later that they changed their name to The Dead. I have tickets for the Red Rocks shows but am waiting as usual for some west coast shows. Rumor has it west coast is in September after they do the summer tour. I have been seeing them since 1979 and have not stopped nor do I plan on stopping any time soon.

    Thanks to this thread, I stayed up and watched them on Letterman tonight. I was impressed. Because there were time constraints, they did a compact version of Casey Jones. To be honest, except for a few songs such as The Other One/Criptical Envelopment, Morning Dew, etc., I wish they wouldn't jam as much as they once did. Sometimes, it just weighs down the music to much for my taste. And, this comes from a long time deadhead.

    I first saw the Dead in the 60's at the Santa Monica Civic, just after the release of their first album. I'm pleading the fifth as far as detail, but I experienced a lot of strange things at their concerts. They never seemed to stop playing and, as always, the people in the crowd did pretty much everything and anything they wanted to...anything!!! The best concerts I ever saw them give were right after the releases of Working Man's Dead and American Beauty.

    By the way, for anyone who watched them on Letterman, who was that female singer? I know I've seen, and really liked, her before. I think it was on Austin City Limits or something.

    Copies of the Bonnaroo show are already out on the net using Bit Torrent and or Furthurnet. It usually takes a couple of days before a show is out. Thing is you can now buy the dsbd of a show online though dead.net. Have fun.
