I got mine as well.

Actually, the Allmans are opening for the Dead.

I'm hoping, that with the early start time, that they both do two full sets.

I can't wait.

There was talk of a third band that has not been announced yet, not sure if that has been scrapped or not.

i lucked out and got two tickets on the general admission floor as well.

any idea if audio taping will be allowed? if yes, i'll definitely bring my recording gear. if it's not i'm not sure i want to try and stealth it since getting the gear through the added security is not something i want to have to deal with.

Wow, what a tough tic to get. All I got was behind the stage.

I passed.

My guess would be "NO", simply because if Obama makes an apperance at the show, then the security issue of checking the tapers equipment comes into play.

Damn that's crazy! I'm lucky I got 2 tix one for myself and my friend. I didn't get floor seats though but if it sold out in 7 mins I'm grateful-no pun!- to have gotten tix at all!

I hope there are tapers there.

Well, we ended up getting two tickets BEHIND THE FREAKIN' STAGE! I left the purchasing duties to my hubby, who is not the 'pro' that I am. My luck is always better than his, every single time.

Oh well, at least we are in...wouldn't it be just awesome for us with behind the stage seating to have this show be in the round? I know what all the guys look like, so I guess all that is important is the sound....

Peace! Love! Music!

I was surprised that they were selling tix behind the stage. It kinda makes me think that the stage set-up won't be that great. I was hoping for some awsome visuals, oh well.

I heard the show was going to be live streamed. I'll do some checking, and post if I find it.

I've seen shows behind the stage like Phish and the other ones and when it's an open stage it's not that bad and you can watch from another perspective.

tickets did not sell out in 7 minutes, I was able to see ticket selections (in front of the stage too) up until after 1 PM.

Seem to be gone now though....

So who all is going? I hope everyone who wanted tix got them. I hope the ABB/Dead put on an excellent show and they allow tapers.

Wow, looks like I gave up too soon. I know it's a long shot, but if anyone finds themselves with one or two extras, please let me know.

If there are no tapers allowed will munch music be involved ? It would be cool if both bands were recorded and sold as a set.

I would say no taping and no official live recording. It's a benefit/fundraiser, and they traditionally do not allow recording and will only release the performance live if approved by the benefitting organization for profit. In other words, bands don't allow taping at venues when they plan to officially release the recording (not instant lives, but through the record company). I can't imagine an event of this magnitude having looser policies.

I would also say not to count on two full sets each. I'll bet on one long set each, probably 90 minutes each. The show does not start at 5:30pm, the doors open at that time. Expect long delays getting through security. Think airport security around Christmas 2001. I'd venture to say the music will start around 8-830pm. You have to figure the music is over by about 11pm or shortly after (after all, it is on a college campus). Even at 90 minutes each, with 30 minutes in between to switch gear, that starts things off at 7:30pm. Kind of a tight schedule.

Anyway, I'd love to be there.

When the Dead played an Obama benfit on 2-4-08 at the Warfield in San Francisco taping was allowed from anywhere and they also broadcast the show live on the internet.

So I would thing since both bands are so taoer friendly that taoing will be allowed

Both bands also use the instant live at shows so there is a possibility that there will be instant lives too

Back in February when this show was held, Obama was only a candidate. Now that is he is the democratic nominee, rules will be different, security will be tougher, so I would try to get some information on taping before showing up with gear, just to save some hassle. Would be good to have tapers since it is taper friendly. Best chance of taping being a yes will be if Obama is not there. Any announcement on whether he will be there or not?

Just checked and saw single tix available - section 209 - way off away from, but at least in front of, the stage...

Still didn't buy though....
