Crazy hot...crazy drunks...I must be getting old and 1995 I drove to New Orleans to see Pearl Jam with the Ramones in City Park on the boycott Ticketbastard of the greatest shows I ever saw...ok I changed my mind...

Finally after 40 years I'll get to see the Horse.Every time I saw Neil it was either with the Stray Gators,International Harvestors or the Restless in Louisiana. Missed them in '91.I'll be there for sure this time.Running out of time.

The Clemintine video was something else-mesmerizing is the word. I can't even recall the song. That knife throwing mama was incredible and so were her kids. I really can't remember the song at all no wonder it was rejected..

So excited about this! I'm definitely planning to go. They should announce single-day ticket prices at some point (I believe they were around $70-75 last year).

Is there some place to sit or is this standing room only.

Fingers crossed for more East Coast dates. Preferably non festival.

I hope they come to PNC Arts Center in New Jersey. I saw them there on the Greendale tour, and it was a really nice venue. Outdoor, big lawn, nice crowd.

Anonymous: You can bring blankets and folding chairs, but the area directly in front of the stage is designated standing room only.

A tip for those planning to attend-- spring for the VIP ticket if you can afford to. It gets you up close to the stage (still GA, but much more elbow room), and carries with it other perks.

Last year they only sold the 3-day VIP ticket in advance of the show, but then offered a VIP upgrade (after you were in the fest with a normal ticket) for a charge.
