hopefully it would give a person access to all sbd's or something...

seems like this tour has been riddled with new ways to make The Dead some cash. I love them, dont get me wrong, but its all about the money this tour, IMO.

Who said this tour was about the music and not the money?

20 bucks! What a fucking joke! This seals the deal for me, no way I give these money hoarding old farts any more of my money. Screw 'The Dead'!

Its also about shilling for the Democratic party. Obama has already taken credit for their resurgence in several press releases.

Glad I skipped their Northeast shows. Rather save it for some smaller acts.

Well, I just bought this app and it may be the best thing I've bought all year. The sound quality is super crisp and I love being able to listen to the shows I couldn't attend.

I'm Stoked!

^ I suggest you check out archive.org. There are ACTUAL Grateful Dead shows that DON'T suck and are FREE.

All you punks talking shit about the Dead can kiss my ass. Truly you have know idea what you are talking about. This Dead tour has kicked a lot of ass, and you can only hope that when your favorite band is touring at 70 years old they can bring it. Both Chicago shows had the lot scene, music, and people that started this shit. It pisses me off that you talk crap.

"Both Chicago shows had the lot scene, music, and people that started this shit."

That was common in every city that the Dead stopped in. The Deadheads were the best thing going at each tour stop. Let the hype die and listen to the mediocre music that was made during this tour. Highlights were few and far between and they really didn't start sounding decent until LA.

As far as kissing your ass caserok...grow up. If you are satisfied with what you saw this tour then so be it. Don't slam others for being disappointed with the obvious.

The Dead show in Hartford sucked. They sounded washed up and bad, not to mention they played cover songs. If I paid face value for a ticket I would have been pissed...

Did this band EVER have sing alongs?

I agree with the above poster, let the hype die down, and then listen to the medieocre tunes, everyone will realize that it's just not that much of an accomplishment, with the money made on this tour I'm pretty sure David Gilmour and Rodger Waters will be getting back together. I am not a hater but if everyone wouldn't hype this up to be something it's not I would keep my mouth shut...

It seems like anyone will open their mouths for a spoonful of bullshit these days and eat it with a smile even though they're thinking "man this shit sucks"
