    Yeah, I have to think Bobby’s days of touring like this are numbered. By no fault of his - the guy is a machine. He has probably been on a stage/performed more concerts than any other human, ever. Fingers crossed that he doesn’t hang onto it too long, as some would say he already has, but here’s hoping it’s evident to him before it’s no bueno. I’m going to Shoreline to see them one more time. I may have to take measures to ensure I stay awake lol.

    What happened the the Ojai show in June?

    You are in for quite a treat, Major. DSO in Ojai? “So this must be heaven...”

    Congrats! Happy for Ovie and D.C.

    Ha, no way, Brian. LOVE having conversation here. Appreciate your thoughts. I know you don’t know me, but I promise I would never attempt to deny you something that is yours, man. That’s not my point at all. Similiar to what you express about sharing what you think, I am merely offering a contrarian point of view on the topic. I can’t imagine an ongoing dialogue where everyone always agrees. Impossible as well as boring lol. I feel that Dead and Co is a bit Disneyfied, certainly compared to what used to be. And I continue to know that I would (also) see DSO all day long before I would go back to D&C, but the piling on seems a bit one-sided, and there is a flip side to most thoughts. So right on, man. Thanks again.

    I don’t disagree with any of this, including the part about Brian sharing what he thinks if not venting a bit about his experience. I’d be pissed, too. Maybe I’m naive, but I just don’t see a guy who has dedicated his entire life to playing live music, who also happens to have more money than he could ever spend, scheming about how to orchestrate set start times to coincide with severe weather fronts in order to rip off a bunch of fans who paid good money to see his concert.

    Bobby Weir = 70 years old. May want to consider cutting the guy some slack re: the 15 minute setbreak thing.

    Yes, it’s all concrete. Not super steep but the height of each step is abnormally high, so cruising up and down is best done thoughtfully. The rows are are really long, with the ends being the best place to really spread out. The area in the row where one will stand is decent, and not nearly as confining as any number of indoor venues (I’m looking at you, Wilbur). I would add that there is more room to stand in a row at Red Rocks than there is in the pavilion at Alpine, Deer Creek, etc. YMMV

    Dead and Company Free live stream tonight

    Cool list so far though. Although we’re really just piling on at this point, they do a good job for what it is, and Weir is doin a helluva lot better than I’ll be doing at his age, in part because I’ll be dead. I live near Boston and skipped the show. My son had a little league game. But I am also about to move to SF, so I have Berkeley to look forward to and don’t need a fix after hearing the Wolf howl at the Wilbur.

    My humble thoughts about your calculus above. PS: see you in Berkeley.

    POTD. post of the day I’ll add that the real-life factors such as money, spare time, and overall energy level (read: are you young enough to enjoy it after West Coast run)? I infer from your phrasing that you’re checking all of those boxes. If so, then as MC says: it shall be magic. Sleep when you’re, eh, Dead.
