any idea how many tickets they sold or how much they were or how many the place holds?
I am in Florida and somehow miraculously made it to SF for New Years but pending hitting the lotto, will not be able to come back for Sweetwater. What an amazing gift though to start 2013- Sweetwater and then snowy CO. It is so beautiful and Green on your west coast. I was truly spoiled on my visit- Our weather is warmer but your grass is greener- (no matter what Jerry said).
Going to New Years reactivated that GD addiction itch- i had pretty much got over it by late 80's but after going to the Fox in Atlanta followed by a bunch of these exciting new Furthur shows, and then seeing all those hippies in SF still living the life...the restlessness comes back. Also, probably never saw the Dead in a place as small as Sweetwater. Not really complaining, just a little, I did manage to see hundreds of grateful dead shows with Jerry G. Now, I will not be going to Sweetwater, BUT i love the hunt of a hard ticket and if I was out there I would hang out outside early each night and just ask every single person if they have an extra ticket- if that failed i would try and walk in unnoticed, (helps to be small).
GOOD LUCK & HAPPY 2013!
