Obama/GD tix on sale through ticketmaster only, at noon today.
From the CDT: "$50 for general admission and $30 for University Park students with a valid Penn State ID, the Obama campaign said.
In addition to the $50 and $30 tickets, the campaign is peddling VIP tickets “starting at $2,500” and available by e-mailing the Obama campaign, according to Obama’s Web site.
Seats at the Jordan Center will number almost 15,000 and will “definitely” sell out, Bernie Punt, Jordan Center director of sales and marketing, said Thursday.
Performers will include former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, as well as Gregg Allman, Butch Trucks, Jaimoe, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Marc Quinones, Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti, the Obama campaign said."
Didn't think D. Trucks would be with them since he's on his own tour and we'll be seeing him at the State Theatre in November....awesome though.
"Whenever the light of civilization falls upon you with blighting power...go to the wilderness...Dull business routine, the fierce passions of the market place, the perils of envious cities become but a memory....the wilderness will take hold of you. It will give you good red blood; it will turn you from a weakling into a man...you will soon behold all with a peaceful soul." George S. Evans, 1904
