Dead and Company is back at it this fall, with six shows, taking place at Madison Square Garden, Nassau Coliseum and Hampton Coliseum. Tickets are completely sold out via Ticketmaster, which means that the secondary market is the best options. While there are still some 'blue dot' tickets available on Ticketmaster, they're all platinum seats, which means they're priced in line with the secondary market. The Halloween show and the November 1st show at Madison Square Garden are by far the most expensive as the below show.
In addition to the slim picking on the primary market and secondary market options, there's also a brisk business of ticket trading and below face price sales for Dead and Co shows, mostly enabled on CashorTrade.org, where all tickets for sale are listed at or below face price.
