Uh yeah I guess I should not have used the word *bad*. I have a feeling .... Better?

I am not assuming the *worst* because the Dead playing Pepsi Center is not a *bad* thing, just not as good as RR. I just offered my opinion based off what the Dead did in 2009, that is all.

Did someone say Alpine Valley muti-night reunion?
She tries to live by the golden rule.

were you there at the so called "reunion"
WORST LOT SCENE EVER>
POLICE STATE.
WILL NEVER GO TO ALPINE AGAIN, and i bet the boys never play there again. HORRIBLE TREATMENT OF ALL FANS IN THE LOT, not just venders or ticketless.
FUK ALPINE

thankfully I remember no hassles at Alpine 2002. It was a wonderful experience for me to see the core 4 together for the first time in 10 years.

If Billy K sits in with Phil and Friends on 9/5/14 it would be the first Lesh/Kreutzmann collaboration since the last Dead performance on 7/4/09.

It is time. . .

Another 2015 rumor:

Multi-night stands in one location on both coasts and one smaller stand in more in the middle. Each of the Core 4 will be fronting their own bands and rotate the headliner spot. No promise that all of the Core 4 will be on stage together at one time but chances are there will be some mix and matching going on and the hope that all will join together. Promoter has not been mentioned yet but unlikely that it will be a usual one. These will be events that last many hours...sort of a traveling festival and may have other acts included. Tickets ranging from $125 to north of $1000 at the VIP level.

Some pros to this format if it really happens: Kimock and Kadlecik might both be included for at least part of the GD50 celebration, Weir would probably sit in with every band on the bill, the Rhythm Devils and Bobby would likely share the stage at some point, etc., etc. It might even be the only 2015 format that could work in light of the recent non-reunion of Phil and Billy in VA.

Or they could easily do a double-bill of Furthur and the Rhythm Devils (just add Mickey to the recent BK Allstars lineup) and have those two bands alternate as headliner, plus include solo sets by Bruce, Donna, RH, et al. This Deadapalooza approach could work out just fine, imo. . .

Why is it this whole 50th anniversary thing is starting to sound less and less interesting.
Lets see, Phil is not touring. He can be replaced. Is the Jerry hologram still being considered?
Perhaps a lot of product (CD's tee shirts coffee mugs) can be spun using GD-50 as logo.
Apologies for being so negative here. Just not sure that the music will be served during this whole marketing event.
Well there is still one year and four months left to be proven wrong.

let's do it "Move Me Brightly" style, and rotate out the musicians throughout the "Dead" show?
