holding out for Wilmington, NC everyone can stay at my house (if only this were a legitimate hope, seeing as the only venue here holds 800)

Does anyone think they will play a festival on the West Coast High Sierra? Would love a long weekend of camping and dancing!

Ann Arbor has the annual "Hash Bash" The First Saturday in April since John Sinclair ( I know John ) was sent to prison for 10 years for possessing 2 joints in the early 70"s. Here is the Wiki:After a series of convictions for possession of marijuana, Sinclair was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 1969 after giving two joints of marijuana to an undercover narcotics officer.[5] This sentence inspired Abbie Hoffman to jump on the stage during The Who's performance at Woodstock to protest. It also sparked the landmark "John Sinclair Freedom Rally" at Ann Arbor's Crisler Arena in December 1971. The event brought together luminaries including pop musicians John Lennon (who recorded the song, "John Sinclair" on his Some Time in New York City album), Yoko Ono, David Peel, Stevie Wonder, Phil Ochs and Pete Seeger, jazz artists Archie Shepp and Roswell Rudd, and speakers Allen Ginsberg, Abbie Hoffman, Rennie Davis, David Dellinger, Jerry Rubin, and Bobby Seale.[6][7] Three days after the rally, Sinclair was released from prison when the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that the state's marijuana statutes were unconstitutional.[8] These events inspired the creation of Ann Arbor’s annual pro-legalization Hash Bash rally, which continues to be held as of 2011, and contributed to the drive for decriminalization of marijuana under the Ann Arbor city charter
My first GD Show was 1989 after The Hash Bash when they played 2 nights in Ann Arbor and have never been back since in a form.
I say we get Furthur back in 2012 although it wont be for Hash Bash, we can make our own Hash Bash amongst friends!
Peace

If you read it carefully it say's he gave the joints to the undercover cop. I take that to mean he didn't even sell them, but I may be reading too much into it.

On the topic of a summer tour, that's where furthur always seems to fill the largest venues, so I have to assume it's their bread and butter so to speak.

The show must go on.....
