(PCM) I am not sure why, but something just feels wrong to me when I learned that 3-day tickets to “Fare Thee Well” the Grateful Dead reunion concert were selling for over $100,000 online.
The upcoming 3-day show will feature the four original members of The Grateful Dead to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary. “Fare Thee Well” will be held at Chicago’s Solider Field over 4th of July weekend. The show will also feature Phish frontman Trey Anastasio who will be taking on vocal duties in place of the late Grateful Dead front man Jerry Garcia.
According to Grateful Dead band member Bob Weir, “Fare Thee Well” will be the last performance ever with the original members of The Dead. Tickets for the upcoming show sold out almost immediately and the original ticket price was between $60 and $200 dollars for 3-day passes. That number has since skyrocketed and now tickets are selling on broker sites such as Stubhub for thousands of dollars. In fact, Stubhub is even offering obstructed/no view seating behind the stage for about $1,000. Unreal! Something tells us Jerry is rolling over in his grave at these prices!
