I am SO EXCITED for my favorite band to play a sick run of shows in the place where they should have been taking residence all along. HA--SF couldn't even sell out three nights. Seriously, I don't know why they don't play New Years here at Best Buy, Beacon, or MSG. I wouldn't be surprised if they moved the New Years show here in the next year or so.
Furthur has done SO MUCH for all of us. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU has had a show in your backyard this year. How many other fans of bands could say that? Did you know that Pearl Jam fans in the South have been neglected for years? So many fans never get to see their favorite band and yet these 60+ fellas have driven by bus to EVERY SINGLE PART OF THIS COUNTRY, INCLUDING MONTANA!!!!!!! For ANY OF YOU to complain about ANYTHING is RIDICULOUS!!! One of the reasons why I live in NYC as opposed to anywhere else is so that I can see all of my favorite bands often. Don't compare your city to NYC. It's just a fact that we get every act always. So when Furthur decides they are tired of driving across the country and need to relax with their friends and families for 8 nights in NYC, consider it a GIFT. They didn't even have to do a spring tour. OF COURSE they will be coming back to you in the summer and fall.
. . . that is, if you actually even buy the tickets. It must suck for them to play at half empty arenas. And embarrassing for them to have to cancel a show because of poor ticket sales.
ENJOY BEACON EVERYBODY!!! I PROMISE YOU WILL ALL GET INTO A FEW SHOWS FOR BELOW FACE VALUE. So what if you can't go to Saturday night? That night is all hype anyways.
The people who have all those tickets up on Stubhub are called scalpers, not "inside job conspirators." They bought tickets quicker than you and are capitalizing on the hype of the shows. Come April, you'll get tons of tickets for cheaper. Except Fri, Sat, and Wed (last night.)
PEACE!! LONG LIVE FURTHUR AND THE DEAD. THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO.
