Has anyone heard any news about more dates for the tour? Specifically mid-west and west coast?
is there a thread on here about the Phil Birthday show ? ( Haitian Benefit ) Id love to see more details about the show, its Friday ! and Im psyched !
tomorrow we see,
Mountian Air memorial weekend looks solid
are they supposed to be announcing tomarrow?
....Specifically mid-west and west coast?.....
Phil mentioned that West Coast dates are to be in September.
Lets see some Midwest dates. St. Louis would be perfect, very centered and a ez road for many major cities.
a nice alpine valley wis 3 day show would be great to
alpine would be great. but the camping situation sucks.
maybe they'll let us use Rothbury grounds.
The 10,000 lakes grounds would be perfect. No complaints from the locals (unlike rothbury) plus camping in the beautiful woods on lake sallie. Perfect place for 15,000 people to enjoy a furthur fest.
I'm hearing Red Rocks three nights with Derek Trucks opening from a really good source!!!???
I know panic is probably doing 4th weekend in June.....
With the west bookings looking like September late August Red Rocks might want to be a area in your schedules to keep open..
After what I just witnessed in Broomfield and San Fran Phil and Bobby have got their groove on!
This will be a monster weekend and would love to see a Sunday afternoon show with Furthur!
blossom or buckeye lake would be great
Phil doesn't like Cleveland, James.
Phil is a rock star!!! come home to the Warf...
we need midwest this summer! i already sold my sci redrocks tix because of furthur adventures!!! Chicago charter one pavillion would be sweet
why doesnt phil like cleveland? and even so buckeye lake is now legend valley (again) and it has been improved and they allow camping inside the venue
>>>why doesnt phil like cleveland?
He hasn't played there since 2002? If The Dead never made a stop at Blossom I can't see Furthur doing it. Maybe that outdoor asphalt tent down in the Flats.
The Dead played Blosom in 2004!
You're right, Pete. My bad. Forgot about that and I was at that show to boot. Still though, I always wondered why Phil and Friends never made a Cleveland stop other than Blossom 2002 with the Allmans.
Question: Anyone know anything more specifically about the schedule for Further Fest memorial day weekend? I likely won't be able to make it to the fairgrounds until late Saturday...and I am trying to rationalize going anyway. Any info helps. Thanks.
^^^Joshua, I'm not aware of any sort of "schedule" being released yet...
the only thing I've seen is what's posted on http://furthur.net/ in the festie FAQ's:
"What's the concert schedule?
Furthur will headline Saturday and Sunday nights, and there will be other stages, activities, and artists on both days. Friday evening will feature a very special Furthur Open Aire Sound check and a late-night all-star jam."
Does anyone know what the camping situation is like at the fair grounds? Shade?
^^^Will, check out this thread:
Anymore info. on possible CO / Red Rocks Furthur shows or possible windows of time where the shows might be scheduled?
Still late August sometime possibly? Furthur and Trucks & Tedeschi Band (or whatever the name) together would be the shizzie. The sit in possibilities are endless and juicy.
Plus for those of us who can't make it to telluride for phish or the festival, this would be a miracle I need. thx ahead of time for any help. namaste.
The Dead played Blossom in 84 and 85.........someone needs to check their facts.
I've got it on good information that Furthur will be at Gathering Of The Vibes after they play the Nokia.
im being told that more nokia shows will be added before the 2 announced
Red Rocks and Greek in Sept.
safarian... from a good source or wishful thinking?
Timmy is that info on GOTV still valid ?
What a great surprise that would be !!
Does anyone know if the backup singers will be touring with the band? They sounded great on the last tour, I was hoping they'd continue on but don't see them on the site anymore.
I think either both or just one of them has a baby or their hands and the last word was that they were not sure if they could commit to the full tour, but that they would like to be around if possible, when they can. This isn't fact but I'm pretty sure phil said something about it on a different thread about a month ago.
Jill did, and added that the band will have back-up singers. So, presumably if Zoe and/or Sunshine can't make it, somebody else will!
They certainly are needed. With Jay Lane gone, there's no male high harmony singer.
Timmy you called it FURTHUR @ gotv !
Safarian or others:
Are we still looking like Greek and Red Rox in Sept.?
Any other rumors, gut feelings, pls post. Thx for posts so far of course as well.
I think some west coast shows will be announced after Furthur Fest. A guy on .org is saying Red Rocks and a Warfield run is a sure-thing.
I thought Phil's 5 night Warfield run from May 2008 was the last of any more shows at the Warfield from Grateful Dead family? They also did albums on that run and I was lucky enough to be at the saturday show when they played skullfuck and dead set. I love Furthur but also really love that last Phil line up with Jackie, Molo, Larry, and Molitz.
SoCal in September
San Diego > LA > Bay Area
how about egypt II ?
the grateful dead played blossum in 85 and the old basketball arena in 93, Richfield.
and the cleveland convention center in 73 with a killer dark star
Rudedhead is that you Burrhead? Hey man Steve R.
from back in the day. What's up man.
the dead did 3 multi night runs a year there for several years
buckeye lake would be a fabulous place.......
summer bummer Mid west and west southwest oh' and also northwest would all love summer dates W.T.F.! why only the east coast havent they had enough shows recently more n.y. shows come on ,very dissapointing to a lot of folks i'm sure 2700miles or so I guess i could be happy too. sure we have two Mt. Veiw shows but ther is no camping no shakedown the locals are rude and the cops suck, but i'll go cuz' i have n't much of a choice.where is our FURTHURFEST?
Alot of heads are showing disapointment about the summer tour. Let me just remind you all that Phil Lesh is 71 years old. they are NEVER going to tour like the dead used to, they have made it clear they would rather play cities closer together, the northeast allows that, and sells maximum amounts of tickets. Let's be GRATEFUL, these guys are playing some of the best music of their lives :P
Egypt? are you on medication or just wicked out of touch James? serious question.
Yes i am grateful just sour grapes- I guess,Can only hope for a phat phall tour ,san diego to seattle tour I suppose! Maybe Aug. holds some surprises...
so bummed about the posted summer tour no dates for miles.......
Cuthbert and Red Rocks at end of Sept and I will be thrilled
do you know how to read dates charlie ? serious question.
when is red rocks rumored to happen?
I hope that it's early august, before my classes start!
>>>do you know how to read dates charlie ? serious question.
No James, I just sit and wait for you to post and confirm them. Got any more Bob Seger or other completely irrelevant tours you want to update. Ratt? Foghat? Meatloaf? Oh wait, thats your dinner and entertainment.
Speakin of Bob Seger, you can dry your tears Against the Wind Charlie.....stop whining and learn how to read
Bob is playing with Chris Robinson and Jackie Greene at the Rocky Mtn Folks Festival the weekend of August 19-21. So I assume no Furthur Red Rocks shows in August.
"Got any more Bob Seger or other completely irrelevant tours"
Charlie- WTF is wrong with a little Silver Bullet Band?? And where is this confirmation?
I'm jonesin' for more Furthur in the midwest. I just hope the dates don't conflict with fottball games that I might want to go to.
Does anyone know if Furthur will play Redrocks this year???
I'm sure that they will play the Rocks. Unfortunately, it'll probably have to be during college football season. That'll make it harder for me to find traveling companions...
9/28 Utah confirmed
Looks like RR will be 9/30-10/2
