This was a sick show, even though it took an hour to load the feed because it was definitely worth the wait. I love the fact that they has a Jerry doll onstage with them. Thanks guys, we love you! Please do more shows together this summer!!!!

If this was the last time they play together then I'm glad I was there. They should take this band on the road but screw summer tour and ampitheatres. The should play five major festival style shows. Two day (4 sets) weekend festival shows. In places like Highgate VT, Big Cyprus FL, Somewhere in IL, TX, CA. Have late night tent shows with bands like ALO, MOE, Tea Leaf Green, Umphrey's McGee, Galactic & Derek Trucks Band! Heck even co-headline with Allman Brothers Band or Widespread Panic! Now wouldn't that be sweet. Only if...

I here ya savage08 "Why don't bands do that?" Because of the monopoloy in the music industry. Clear Channel owns the venues, ticketeting, security & promotions companies along with just about every radio station. When you go to a show the band see's very little of the money you spent. Somebody got to pay for that expensive office space in LA & NY! Bands should do more with live video of select shows on their websites.

Nice, phil on an upright!! Pics look great, mickey looks old!! Im sure he still sounds great... BTW, id like to know who is giving my comments the thumbs down. Honestly, dont give someone the thumbs down for speaking thier mind. That is un-american. Talk about it, this thread is inherently political. Its about the dead supporting obama. So therefore there is no reasing i should be censored for discussing the fact that obama is a member of the council on foriegn relations. The same policy planning group that planned the iraq war, the patriot act, the project for the new american century, military commissions act. You know what, ill just post all that i had up in the other thread. Read it and tell me what you think. Perhaps you have some insight. Id love to hear what everyone has to say about obama and the CFR...

delan- i enjoyed the back and forth too. i don't know what a co-intel-pro-moron" is so i can't respond. i've been w/out web access for a few days now but i also have a bit more clarity on our debate. i don't know anyone at jambase personally and i have no interest in censoring you or me, but i'm flattered you think i could. i too am curious about where the previous thread went.

while i still have my opinions and you still obviously like to repeat yours, i'm ok with us just disagreeing. i never intended to "ridicule you into submission"; though i still believe that your very suspicious inuendos amount to paranoia. you can, and i'm sure you will, continue to view me as a slave or a sheep or a pacafist or what have you. i'll live. i also want to close with an apology. i'm sorry for the ad hominem attacks; i can and i'm sure i will, on some other thread, debate without name calling. i harbor no ill will, though some of the words i used to describe you were kind of foul. i welcome your opinions, arguments, and discussions even the ones i feel strongly are unfounded. no hard feelings-at least from me!

thanx for your rant...iv been aware of some of the facts, the attempt to overthrow the gov't, i was taught that one in class maybe its cuz i go to a liberal arts school but i dunno if other people at other schools are taught that too..look at the bretton woods treaty during nixons time when they decided to float the american currency. i dont know, but i wouldnt be suprised if nixon was part of the CFR. im glad your threw some of these facts in our face, i wasnt away about the current candidates...and i dont believe ur tryin to force your views on anyone, ur just presenting information so that people can have it and either use it or disregard it. the only problem i have is finding a way to change this country, i jus told a kid dont be suprised if we fall into a depression and dont be suprised if we dont have to pay sum of our student loans back after some years cuz all the banks will be closed, but i dunno...are you a conspiracy theorist if you look at information and form an opinion on it or make a guess as to what it may predict to the future? i think its time we as a country collectively removed our heads from our asses...but as long as the great majority is licking their prostates, were jus gunna have to settle for the lesser of the evils that were are presented with...so thats why i think phil and bob and mickey may have supported obama...too bad i am in new hampshire right now and couldnt see that amazing performance...EAT IT

They always remove news items after the event has passed. it's not a conspiracy to silence delaneyira.

Here is my review of the show:

It was a pretty damn good show. It was odd the way they did things with the tickets tho, but aside from that I enjoyed it. Wish I coulda got all my friends in too....

So here is how I remember it going down... Walking in we were handed a poster that said "Deadheads for Obama" and has a Steal Your Face on the side with the words "Wave That Flag" next to it. And on the other side it said "All fired up and ready to go" Here is what it looks like. The interesting thing was that if I had held the poster with me, it would have gotten ruined in like 10 seconds. I checked mine for $.75. Good thing too, because turned out they were selling them later in the show at the merch booth (after the tshirts sold out) for $20 and a signed one for $500!

So the band didn't get started until 8:30 - one hour late - as they were supposedly waiting for the people in the HUGE will call line to all get inside. Then the word was that they were going to release some tickets. That may or may not have happened...

The whole thing opened up with a minor flub when they couldn't seem to get the curtain all the way up. It seemed like it was stuck on something, so we were all waiting with baited breath as it was about halfway opened up and nothing was happening...

So they finally got that resolved and there was a video message from Barack saying thanks to Phil and the guys and everyone for coming out and supporting him. At the end he made it TOTALLY clear he had NEVER been to a Dead show when he said "So, thanks for coming, and sit down and enjoy the music!" The entire crowd was like "Sit down? Where do you think we are??"

When they finally got going with the music the first set was over almost before it started clocking in at 5 songs (by my memory but on the Phil and Friends site they have Shakedown Street listed. I don't recall hearing that Monday nite. I heard it on Mardi nite a couple weekends ago...)

I recall them opening with Playing in the Band and then going into Brown Eyed, and then Half Step, New Minglewood and then closed it out with Come Together. Before Come Together Bobby made some comment about this being an appropriate song on many levels...

The first set had some sound issues and you could tell they were kind of settling in and getting used to playing in front of a crowd together again, even tho the core of them have played as P&F for a while. I think they have tele-prompters with the words (and Bobby still managed to flub some of them - ala Jerry-oke nite) and Phil was making a lot of the calls as far as song selection goes. He would step up to the mike, say something, but you couldn't hear it... And then they would go into the next song.

During the short set break, Phil, Bob and Mickey came out and did a little get out the vote thing, and Phil had written a speech to get us "all fired up and ready to go". He delivered it well and had us fired up and ready to go, and then they went and took a break. Hmmmm. Not the best political rally-ist, but that is not why we love him....

Anyway, the second set was short, sweet and acoustic, but not really "fired up and ready to go" either. Phil playing the standup bass.... So sweet... Got me a little fired up... Set list was Deep Elem, FOTD (Which I thought should have been dedicated to Hillary), Deal and then Ripple (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) which was AMAZING! Then another break.

3rd Set was more like it was meant to be (fired up and ready to go) and they pretty much blew off the curfew requirement by playing till Midnite. China Cat>The Wheel (With a little Uncle John's Band tease)> Other One>Sugaree (which had an amazing jam going on between Jackie Green and Mark Karan.) >Eyes>Throwing Stones (been a while for that one, but shoulda seen it coming)>Iko Iko>Playin' Reprise.

Phil came out and mumbled the donor rap (couldn't really hear it that well on the floor) and the get out the vote rap and almost forgot to include Mickey in the Band intros.... Pretty funny shit. Mickey took it pretty well. Then they encored US Blues... Wave that flag... Wave it wide and high!

When I heard about this show my first thought was...oh god, what the heck, how lame...I can't afford to fly to Cali on the spur of the moment.

Obama? I'm somewhat shocked. The guy voted to support the patriot act, which basically takes away all of our rights as american citizens. He also voted in favor of killing babies during the birthing process. Sounds like just another sold-out politician to me. Jerry's probably rolling over in his grave right now. I'm sure the music was good but what the heck?!

anyone considering voting for obama should know that his to-be foreign policy advisor is Zbigniew Brzezinski, someone who is not looking to get out of the mideast any time soon, if ever. he also pushes one-world government policies by way of secretive organizations such as CFR and the Trilateral Commission. he is about as neo-con as they come. just some food for thought...

the idea that republicans and democrats are opposite sides is a complete illusion in every sense. they just focus on a few, basically either irrelevant issues or issues they have no real intention of changing anyway in order to convince people they have different opinions.

Obama says he'll take us out of iraq...has anyone ever even heard him mention korea or afghanistan or any of the other multiple countries where we have troops and are establishing bases? i didn't think so...

The past two summers I have been an "intern" at the CFR in New York, I have been working with members of the council, not in close proximity of course, on numerous editorials in "foreign affairs". CFR, correctly described above is the largest foreign affairs council outside the actual state department. The idea of CFR like the great Theodore Roosevelt aimed it to be with his "Big-Stick" diplomacy is a bi-partisan view on foreign affairs. You speak of conspiracy but without such a "private" institution as well as outside of the ignorant/ naive to the rest of the world government that we have we would be viewed as even more cocky, retarded sons of bitches to the rest of the world, to be frank. I understand the globes view of America has been diminished but the CFR intends, unlawfully, I agree to manipulate US opinion for our own good. 98% of the American population cannot comprehend what foreign policy even is and what is beneficial for them. I agree with many of the above statements that such institutions are exploitative and manipulative but you must understand that to allow many to think freely would be hazardous, think about it..."Only 2 out of 10 Americans can name a country that starts with a U."...let them run your foreign policy. Also reflect on many of the past members that contributed to the basic freedoms and the security that Americans live by today, most notably, George Kennan, allowed Americans to live in a "democratic" society, note that democracy is a far cry from its original definition but still a much better definition then communism. Other notables, John Foster Dulles, Eisenhower's foreign policy man engaged in what he called "retaliation" or "liberation", obviously that failed but his contributions to containment were excessive and important. One can argue that American foreign policy has been flawed, and this is true, but you cannot overlook those great contributors to foreign policy, who indeed have given you much of the freedoms you enjoy today. Ask a peasant during one of Stalin's infamous purges if he is enjoying the same freedoms as us?.. Politics are always going to be corrupt, but nothing will change until someone stands up and does something about it, and by all means my friend delaney if you would like to set up a coup give it a shot, if not I believe Obama is the most intelligent, wisest as well as least ignorant to the world (due to his up bringing in numerous nations). Educate yourselves dont let anyone tell you what to believe form your own opinion and act on your own accord. Read, try picking up "foreign policy" read about what is occurring in China and Northern Korea. Formulate what you want.

in response...do something about it. You obviously have a voice, do something rather then complaining to a bunch of deadheads with your rhetoric that can be read for three dollar late fees at any library. Ive read all the political rhetoric imaginable, you are completely right I understand, but until you do something about it, you indeed are the "lazy asshole". I would also recommend changing your tone when arguing an issue, you will never be respected or listened to sounded like an ignorant fifth grader.

Look bud, you said " I understand the globes view of America has been diminished but the CFR intends, unlawfully, I agree to manipulate US opinion for our own good." What makes you think that the CFR is doing that for our own good? How does any of the policies that the CFR advocates help our image in the world? The CFR and the project for a new american century, many members of these orgs hold some of the most powerful positions in the country, created the pre-emptive war theorty. Sorry, im not going to be nice to you. You are defending mass murderers when you say that they are manipulating us for our own good. How can you say that your not brainwashed when you come to these rediculous conclussions. Its orwellian double talk. They are sending us off to die in iraq to help americas image in the world that was damaged by americas illegal invasion of IRAQ. Do you want to explain yourself? And another thing, why dont you address some of these issues i raise? Instead you tell me to do somethibng about it. What the hell do you think im doing right now. You cant fight this thing with guns or protest movements. This is an information war. We need to be explaining these things to everyone, in every forum posible. Diner table, online forums, with friends. You dont seem to understand that if we the people dont teach our brothers and sisters then our bros and sis's are going to turn to the OFFICIALs for thier answers, those same officials have been pouring candy coated lies into our ears for 130 years now. So, there you go. Everytime i bring this stuff up in a public place, i am doing my part. You by giving me shit for not being nice about it are simply creating a speedbump. Your never going to learn anything until you realize and accept that you dont know everything. I tell myself everyday that the only thing i know for sure is that there is a world of information that i dont know. Its like my mantra. And you know what, you can call me a fifth grader all you want. A fifth grader nit-picks about the shit that isnt important to absolve himself of the responsibility of analyzing the data. Its a cop out, its easier to shoot the messenger. Stop shooting the messenger people. If you dont like my way of presenting it, but my assertions all check out, then whats more important? The fact of the matter or the way the facts were presented. And another thing, is it at all surpising that i get frustrated? Look at some of the comments laid before me? I tell it how it is and people say things like "damn, delaney needs to get laid" Wrong fucking answer. You should go "WTF, why is the govt doing this to us" Why arent you people doing that? I thought this community was open-minded. I come here and i listen to the stupid things said and i think, damn, they are just a differnt brand name then the emo kids, or the hardcore kids, or the hiphop heads. Only worrying about whats going on in thier little cage that they have built around themselves. Stop talking about what i say and start talking about what my words mean. What does it mean that all the positions of power are held by people who work for the same policies? What does it mean that the workings of these groups are kept quite secret. And yes, CFR stuff has become less secret then before but it still isnt reported on in the news. So it might as well be classified, most people are going to look for it. And the people who do get ridiculed as kooks. WTF people out there, dont you feel the way i do? Back me up for fucks sake... Fuck it, dont back me up, back up the info. Disregard the fact that im delivering the msg. Find out this stuff, and start your own comments. That is what we can do to help the situation. You cant give money to anything to stop this nonesense. You have to read this stuff and watch some documentaries. Watch, america:freedome to fascism, endgame, loose change, money as debt. Go ahead, its all free on youtube. Im not saying believe what you see on youtube, im saying take a look and if it checks out, then believe it. If not call it crap. Its not likely that after watching those documentaries that youll come to the later conclussions. It becomes clear really fast why our world doesnt seem to make sense after you see those points of view. But you would never know what im talking about if you dont take a look at all sides of the discussion...

Or you could skip all that and read new world order by HG wells at http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/new_world_order_hgwells.htm and get the full picture in a more suscinct fassion.

um del i think it's pretty obvious that phishing is aware of what you're talking about.

do you not agree that we still have a high standard of living?? our foreign policy of the last half century has been intended in many ways to ensure that. the problem is, the reason that the power-hungry people at the top are trying to ensure that is more to appease us in order to keep us from questioning rather than a genuine concern for our well-being.

phishing it must be interesting getting to see things from the perspective of the CFR while still not conforming to them. are there many people there who are still open-minded or do they just kind of shut up and do what they're told?

I had to join this silly jambase just so I could comment. And I had to respond and give support to the few people that seem to ‘get it’.

Delaney, wearth, moejoe – you are correct. The country is now, and has been for a long while, being run by fascists. Not run of the mill fascists but the nazi type. Letting New Orleans drown is such a good example of what I mean. Planning or at least allowing Sep 11th to ‘happen’ is a better example (Loose Change being the best doco to explain the inconsistencies in the public story of what happened). When this kind of money and power are at stake, there are NO coincidences. The reason why people in America can’t hear us when we talk about it, is a result of a serious dumbing down of society, stepped into high gear when Ray-gun was allowed to be preznit – Geo. Bush Sr ran things but even he and his idiot son are fronting a much larger and more powerful cabal (the Bush Crime family has been aiding and abetting nazi’s since the 1930’s – one even went to JAIL for trading with the enemy during a time of war). CFR is part of that but they too are front men for the cabal that controls. It’s amazing that Project for a New American Century (PNAC) had the nerve to release their master plan for all to read – of course not many people DID read it – but then again Hitler published HIS master plan from prison in 1923 (Mein Kampf – My Struggle) and very few ‘got it’ then either. The ones who did were labeled as conspiracy nuts etc just as happens today. People don’t want to read about this – people don’t want to know… it’s too hard, scary, depressing and would require some action. The facts that will form a picture of what is going on under the surface are all available on the web. These ‘people’ (my theory is that they are actually reptiles – not humanoids) will let the entire planet be destroyed while they amass more wealth. Yes, we are headed toward extinction (another one – is it the 5th??) and they either won’t admit it or don’t care – like reptiles behave.

I have loved the Dead since someone dragged me to a show 12/28/79 – been on the bus ever since. I have also asked them nicely and then not so nicely (in person – Jerry, Bob, Phil) to DO something – say something – let the ‘heads know that they have a responsibility to be part of this ‘democracy’ – minimally to vote but hopefully to become more engaged to help change happen. Obama is not the answer (unfortunately neither is Hillary ). Dennis was probably our last best hope for saving this country and the rest of the world. The world follows in our footsteps even over the edge of the cliff. Obama is part of the organization – the corporate org that runs the world for their advantage. You think the housing collapse is an out-of-the-blue event? It was part of the plan from the time the congress allowed banks to sell mortgages and get in on the big money. Just a matter of time. Happening here in Oz too now.. My husband and I moved to Australia 2 years ago because we saw this coming… the dollar drops on the market, the housing collapse makes a few people rich and the world laughs and abhors us. There has been steady erosion of our rights since Nixon (Ray-gun made it happen even more) and now raisin-brain is finishing us off. The transfer of wealth from the lower and middle classes to the top 1/10 of 1% is almost complete (they will try to get all the money from the Social Security funds again – they will not stop until they have broken the middle class and put us back under a feudal system). Read about these things – transfer of wealth, devaluation of the dollar, endless war, destruction of the ecosystems – these are all part of a plan that makes the Gilded Age look like goody-two-shoes. Where did all the jobs go? Where is our manufacturing base? Who made money on these things??

I helps me to listen to Mike Malloy on NovaM radio (online podcasts) and a lot of the folks at AirAmericaRadio.com (especially Thom Hartmann – who makes learning our own history fun) and remembering what I learned from reading “The People’s History of America’ (Howard Zinn) and Noam Chomsky – I urge people to read and learn these things, especially if you have children.. there will be no world for them if things don’t change.

I despair a lot but hope that even one person will avail themselves of this knowledge – knowledge is Power.

Love you all and wish a future for all of you.

What's with the control freaks? I'm capable of scrolling past a comment I don't want to read, so is every one else in here.

I dug the review of the show, the pics were great, I Youtubed the boy's speech, got a kick out of Phil's orating and gesturing. Watched the news conferences, while tripping!! It's ALL GOOD.

I enjoyed reading every political comment posted and I have to agree with most of the New World Order warnings these good people and thinkers are trying to impart. Hell, it's printed in the Great Seal of The United States, right on the dollar bill "Novus Ordo Seclulorum" - New World Order, just take a dollar bill out of your pocket and read it for yourself.

I've seen about 300 dead shows over my 30 years on the bus, (from Watkins Glen in 73 (Summer Jam) to Soldier Field in '95. I love these guys and always will. I'm a dead head but I have other interests too. Don't be so pompous to say what 90% of the people on this thread want to read, nobody asked me, and you don't speak for me.

Let people post what they are feeling, if you don't like it, scroll, brother, scroll!

Sounds like a wonderful show, thanks for the pics, I'm going to fire up the archive.com show recording right now, so I'm especially thank ful for the head who posted that link.

Minds are like parachutes, they only function when open!

how is this not a political thread?? this is a thread about the support of possibly the most important people in the world of jambase for a politician. I would be completely disheartened if there weren't people on here speaking their minds about what that means. If you don't care don't read it; if you already knew about it, you would probably see why people want to talk about it, and if you disagree, then give your opinion.

woops "Novus Ordo Seclorum" what I typed above was a typo, don't flame me for it! You can find it on the scroll above the unfinished pyramid on the Great Seal on the dollar bill. The pyramid is unfinished indicating the evil plan is not complete. The all seeing eye of the illuminati hovers above the pyramid, waiting to complete it. Delaneyira is right on point.

blue - again, you're wrong. the nature of this entire article and thread is political. whether you care to admit it or not won't change that.

also, give me all the 'thumbs down' you want, it won't change the FACT that Zbigniew Brzezinski is Obama's foreign policy advisor, or the FACT that Brzezinski is one of the most notorious neo-cons in washington.

Did anyone here lose their ticket stub at the show? I found a ticket stub on the ground at the show but didn't find the rightful owner. I know these are important souveniers to many of us, especially for this historical show.

I would like to thank all the deadheads that have expressed their true views versus letting them fade away. While most of the posters on here seem to be in support of Obama, more than a handful seem disagree. There's no hiding that and I personally don't believe that the people who disagree should "put their tail between their legs". I think that the people that don't support Obama (or the political influence) should get together and maybe write a letter to the grateful dead to show how we feel on the issue. Just an idea.

jakmak- you say "Let's talk about the band.Let's talk about the music.You have every right to express your thoughts but I don't think this is the venue.Take care and have a great day!"

--This is exactly our point.--

Why does the band have to bring politics into it? They have went from making it a story about re-uniting to a story about politics. It is not our fault that we are not willing to just drop it and act like we are Obama supporters. We are deadheads, not Obamaheads. There is a time and a place for politics, and its not during music time. :)
