Dead 50th Public On-Sale Date Update

faretheeDue to an overwhelming amount of mail order requests the on-sale date for the Grateful Dead’s 50th anniversary celebration at Chicago’s Soldier Field (Home of Da Bears – appropriate!) has been changed to Feb 28th. According to an announcement on the official website – over 60,000 mail orders requests were received for the 3 day event. We wish all our readers a grand “Fare thee well” and good luck on getting your seats. Full official announcement:

Wow! We’re excited (and humbled) to discover that your enthusiasm for Fare Thee Well matches our own! We have received an overwhelming number of mail order ticket requests. In an effort to honor the history and spirit of the Grateful Dead, we are going to try to fill as many of these orders as possible. This means there will be no other pre-sales. In order to give the good folks at GDTS TOO time to sort through the 60,000+ (!) envelopes received so far the new public on sale is Feb 28th @ 10 a.m. CST via Ticketmaster.
