Apparently I have too much time on my hands so with all the comments about where Furthur plays I thought it would be interesting to see how things actually stack up. This UNOFFICIAL (I am prone to mistakes) list is for complete shows done by Furthur since their inception (SEPT 2009) through the end of the 2011 Spring tour.

SHOWS BY STATE

NEW YORK 25
CALIFORNIA** 15
PENNSYLVANIA 12
COLORADO 8
MASSACHUSETTS 6
CONNECTICUT 4
FLORIDA 4
VIRGINIA 4
ILLINOIS 4
OREGON 3
NEW JERSEY 3
GEORGIA 2
NC 2
OHIO 2
NEW HAMPSHIRE 1
DELAWARE 1
MAINE 1
WEST VIRGINIA 1
WASHINGTON 1
NEVADA 1
MINNESOTA 1
IOWA 1
MISSOURI 1
MARYLAND 1
SOUTH CAROLINA 1
ONTARIO, CANADA 1

That's 106 shows in approximately 20 months - from Sept '09 through April 2011. WOW!! THANK YOU FURTHUR!!!!

** California has also had 17 live rehearsal sessions in addition to the 15 actual shows listed above**

Clearly they never play anywhere else. It's a New York band, after all...

I'm not that surprised. Because of all the area colleges, Philly's always been a hotbed of Dead activity. My college felt like Deadhead Central in the 70s. What I find a little poignant about the summer tour is that all the venues are pretty large which means that some PA sweet spots like Penn's Peak and the Sherman probably won't see any more Furthur shows.

I compiled this list off the Tour Link on this site. I think our difference is that I did NOT include the 17 "Live Rehearsal Sessions" or the 1 "Open Air Soundcheck" since these were not real shows but rather practice gigs (usually about 8-10 songs in a small local bar) they did in California prior to going out on tour in 2009 and 2010 respectively.

If I included these practice gigs then my number would be 124 also.
