We lucked out yesterday, and with Black Betty's perseverance and superior computer savvy, we scored great seats for The Dead. We are going to the Easter Sunday show on April 12th at the Greensboro Coliseum. It's the first show in the twenty-city 2009 show, so it should be great. I have not seen them since '77 or '78 so they may have aged somewhat. It'll be a family gathering for me, since our daughter (Sugaree) and her boyfriend will be going with us.
This edition of The Dead is the same that played for the Obama benefit at Penn State last fall. It features Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Billy Kreutzman. They are joined by Warren Haynes on guitar (yes!) and Jeff Chimenti on keyboards.
