With a new site confirmed for their Terrapin Station concert after two sites refused to stage the show, members of the Grateful Dead are being cautious, and issued the following statement to their fans:
See, faith helps. We're delighted to confirm that the local authorities have
given us a permit to put on Terrapin Station as planned at Alpine Valley on
August 3 and 4. We're looking forward to it.
We'll have more to say soon, but we'll start with this: Because of recent
events, we will all be under more scrutiny than ever, and it's absolutely
essential that we pull off two very cool days. If you don't have a ticket,
don't come. If people come without tickets, our ability to book future
concerts will be totally compromised. We've got all kinds of ideas for
making this easy, but it's too soon to go into details.
If you don't have a ticket, don't come. We thank you for your love and
Bill, Bobby, Mickey, Phil
