Re: Furthur Shows by State

^^Good points. West coast shows are usually definately a little more mellow compared to the n.e., but it has been that way as long as i can remember. two different feelings two different crowds, almost two different worlds completely.

There's no problem with Washington, there's just nowhere to go from there that's fiscally responsible with the price of Diesel.

Just ask Vermont.


Ahhhhhh - Portland, Colimbia, Spokane, Eugene, Salem, Missoula, Boise, Salt Lake City, Wyoming, etc, etc, etc.. The Dead did it in 2004. They strung together a great NW tour:
Phoenix, Chula Vista, Irvine, Shoreline, Marysville, Salt Lake City, Boise, Portland, The Gorge(Wa.)

Why can't they do that again!?!?!?!

Sadly there has been no TX shows and none appear on the horizon. I guess it's all about the $ and no stress travel....they have earn it so I'm not bitter just disappointed. Last year I flew to Rochester to catch a show but cannot afford that time and expense every year.

Anyone know what the average price of gas was seven years ago? I'm sure there are a lot of factors that work towards that tour not happening again for Furthur.

Anyone know what the average ticket/t-shirt price was in 2004??? Price for a beer???

Everything has gone up... Price of gas is not an excuse... Just raise ticket prices! ..and they have!

By the way..

NYC > Boca Raton is 1300 miles

...and tour they just did

Los Angeles > Seattle is 1000 miles

...why is the argument against this possibility gas prices!?!?!? They just did a 1300 mile tour down the east coast

They could tour the entire west coast in 300 less miles........

New York City > Binghamton, NY - 180
Binghamton, NY > Pittsburgh, PA - 344
Pittsburgh, PA > Hampton, VA - 414
Hampton, VA > Charleston, SC - 450
Charleston, SC > Atlanta, GA - 345
Atlanta, GA > Orlando, FL - 444
Orlando, FL > Boca Raton, FL - 200

7 shows down the East coast in 1300 miles


HERE is a west coast tour:

San Diego > Los Angeles - 122
Los Angeles > Santa Barbara - 95
Santa Barbara > San Fransisco - 302
San Fransisco > Jacksonville, OR - 366
Jacksonville, OR > Eugene, OR - 165
Eugene, OR > Seattle - 283
Seattle > Gorge -140
Gorge > Boise, ID -375
Boise > Alta, WY - 350
Alta, WY > Salt Lake City - 290
Salt Lake City > Las Vegas - 420 (yes, 420 miles!!!!)

With a grand finale in Las Vegas (Then the boys have a short drive back home to rest!)


Now there is a west coast tour. 12 shows...

Then do a winter SW tour- (NM, AZ, TX, AL, ending in New Orleans!)

That would get road trippers out!! A gorgeous tour up the west coast, then a killer SW tour in the nice winter heat!


Anyone up for that!? All in favor say "I"!

Two things:
You're forgetting parts (important ones, like NYC and Philly) of the east coast tour.
Also, how well do you think Furthur would do on that "hypothetical" West coast tour? Financially appetizing?
