Re: An honest question for Phil/Jill from the Midwest

In response to a previous post: If Furthur played a 2,100 capacity venue in Chicago for a week, such as they did at the best Buy in NY, there is no doubt they would sell out instantly. Weak sauce?

It's no secret that the Grateful Dead and Furthur have always liked being in California and New York. The older they get, the more they're gonna do exactly what THEY want to do. We still have no reason to be mad at them after all they've given us.

I live in the east and was surprise to see the extended stay but must say I'm just glad to see that they are still going strong. There could be any number of reasons why they are staying close by but I'm sure you will get some more fall/winter dates especially going into NYE

This whole Phil is 71 and should slow down shit is just that...shit.

He is touring and making very nice cash doing so. It isnt too much to ask that he play in other areas where the fanbase will support him.

Him getting paid to play music for a living is the privilege. Don't forget that.

Toad you need to quit your whinin. Maybe if you lived in a state that had culture and class you would get Furthur shows.

New York City rocked on spring tour - so much to do and see - 8 shows in the same city and they all sold out. Come party in the Big Apple next time the boys are in town!

According to Toad's profile he lives in Austin. Texas I presume. A town
I've seen the Dead in, and visited a number of times since then.

Ever heard of 6th St, or SxSW festival?

Man one thing I can't stand is self righteous New Yawkas, whom I'm

As a general rule I don't like to go to places that have people coming from there that like to talk up the place. If you have to tell everyone that where you live is the best, then it isn't the best.

We shouldn't forget that Phil and most of us enjoy something
called free will.

Suffice it to say Phil has led a very priveleged life (grew up/resides in
bay area, plays the best music professionally, drives expensive sports cars, etc)
but he has lived out of a suitcase for years and years. The man has done
his part. Conversely I wished Furthur would play all four corners of the
U.S., a tradition these guys upheld for decades. Thing with life is some
aspects don't remain as they were.

I can only hope Phil, et al would be receptive to the wishes of the fans
and visit their respective regions.
