    I'm planning on putting in for two for each night through gdstoo, and then if I don't get that I'll be rolling the dice with presales and ticketmaster. And then if I don't get that desperate measures will need to be taken.

    I will be trying all channels for last show on 5th (haven't given up on 3rd/4th and will try for them also).

    Super excite.

    I get the history/connection but very surprised they picked Soldier Field for last show EVAR.

    My wife and I are definitely in. She was completely freaking out when it was announced. The Dead are my all-time favorite and Phish are her all-time favorite. A four hour drive and multiple free places to stay make it a no-brainer. And I'm prepared to pay an ungodly sum for tickets if I am shut out via fan club and/or general sales.

    On June 13th I'm starting the drive from Montana to Wisconsin. Then I'm going to be in France/Belgium from ~June 17-July 1, flying out of Chicago. Then I'll land back in Chicago and hopefully hit these shows.

    I'm already deciding what I don't need in my cellar that I can trade/sell for tickets if I get shut out.

    This thread and the Phish thread are in the top four threads on the page. I'm so proud.

    Was hoping for two days but wife doesn't want to leave the kids for two days *rolls eyes* so I'm shooting for the last day. Any idea what price might be on the VIP packages? If I can only do one might as well try and go big.

    Having never been to Soldier Field, I can only imagine there isn't going to be anything decent at all unless you're in the pit.

    Haha Bobby...

    I'm supposed to be at my in-laws that weekend in Joliet. Will trade/share VT beers for a place to crash downtown.

    Tales from the Golden Road is spending the whole episode talking about the shows.




    And love it being in Chicago. Especially since I already have a few "guys" there that will make the weekend even that much better. ;)
