Update [2/28]: Just moments after the general Ticketmaster on-sale, we discovered that someone was listing GA Pit tickets for over one million dollars. That is ABSURD. Do the community a favor and list your tickets on CashorTrade.org.

Update: Tickets on Stubhub for a three day passes to the Grateful Dead reunion with Phish’s Trey Anastasio in the nosebleeds are going for $2,000+. GA Pit tickets are going anywhere from $9,000 – $58,000! Fans trying to trade tickets for face value should visit CashOrTrade.org, the world’s first social ticketing platform for Face Value Tickets!  

The Grateful Dead Reunion “Fare Thee Well” 2015 website, officially representing GDTS, posted the following message just moments ago. Looks like 60,000+ mail orders postponed the official ticket sale release for the July 4th “Fare Thee Well” shows back two weeks, to February 28th. Fare Thee Well co-promoter Peter Shapiro’s Relix Magazine reveals that the 60,000+ envelopes are “requesting an estimated 350,000+ tickets for the three nights.” We knew these shows would be popular with fans, but not to that level. Read below:

Tickets will be offered through Grateful Dead Ticketing mail order and a public on sale via Ticketmaster.

-Wow! We’re excited (and humbled) to discover that your enthusiasm for Fare Thee Well matches our own! We have received an overwhelming number of mail order ticket requests. In an effort to honor the history and spirit of the Grateful Dead, we are going to try to fill as many of these orders as possible. This means there will be no other pre-sales. In order to give the good folks at GDTS TOO time to sort through the 60,000+ (!) envelopes received so far the new public on sale is Feb 28th @ 10 a.m. CST via Ticketmaster.

-We are excited to team up with CID Entertainment to offer VIP and Travel packages to enhance your experience in Chicago! VIP Experiences include amazing seats and amenities. Travel Packages offer a wide range of hotel choices in the Chicago area with your choice of ticket package and round-trip transportation to Soldier Field.

There will be a general admission pit directly in front of the stage ($99.50). Reserved tickets range from $59.50-$199.50.

A limited number of taper tickets will available for each show exclusively via mail order through Grateful Dead Ticketing. Taping is permitted exclusively in the designated tapers section.

ADA seating will be offer through Ticketmaster starting on 2/14.

All mail order and Dead Online Ticketing purchasers will receive commemorative Fare Thee Well tickets, designed with art selected by Grateful Dead Ticketing from the mail order envelopes submitted by fans.

***No tickets have been released yet. If you attempt to purchase tickets from an online ticket reseller prior to February 12th they are likely to be counterfeit.
