Gevaldt, it's borderline Techias Hamaysim
(Raising of the Dead") time! After months of anticipation, the
purported "final" tour of the four surviving core members of the
Grateful Dead (Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann),
with support from Trey Anastasio, Jeff Chimenti, and Bruce Hornsby
begins TONIGHT at Levis Stadium in Santa Clara, California!
RFN's Lorelai Kude will be going to the Sunday, June 28th show, and will
be live tweeting, Facebooking and all her other Social Media moves live
from the show.
We've recruited a couple of Freelancers who will be filing audio and
written reports of the Santa Clara AND Chicago Shows! You'll be hearing
recorded reports from them on the radio! Stay tuned for details!
It can't have escaped your notice that the hullabaloo surrounding the
reunion shows has been not exactly "Kosher". From ticket scalping to
overpriced VIP packages and all manner of Yuppie-not-Hippie-ish kind of
marketing, those who would love to be able to "Steal Your Face" have
come out of the virtual woodwork to try to make a buck off of the most
devoted fan base in the world - Deadheads.
There's even the very machmir position taken by some which says going to a show is assur because Jerry isn't in this world anymore.
What's undeniable though, at least from this end of the lens, is that
EVEN THOUGH JERRY IS GONE, THE MAGIC IS STILL THERE. We can't explain
it, and we didn't really anticipate this being the case - and yet it is.
WWJD? What would Jerry do?
We think he'd say it's ok to go to the shows and have a good time, even
though he isn't there. We DO think that Jerry and Bill Graham are both
sitting together in Heaven, simultaneously cracking up AND preparing
thunderbolts to throw at unscrupulous hustlers.
We don't know for sure what Jerry would say, but we DO know that he
would remind us to be kind to each other and expect a miracle!
