Obviously, there might be more going on behind the scenes that these managers are unaware of, but sounds like they may indeed be headed back to the Beacon!
That is encouraging news with the rumors of Furthur hanging it up.
The Beacon is too small and tickets were impossible to get so if it is financially feasible I would urge Phil and Bob to investigate the pros and cons of Radio City or even MSG with more shows in say Philly, or elsewhere,rather than just New England. Taht would take some of the scalping pressure off.
I urge everyone here to join with me in urging Furthur to really take this into serious consideration.
Those Spring 2012 Beacon shows were damned near impossible to get into. It was the worst scalping imaginable associated with Furthur.
GSTSTOO also seemed to have vary little of the ticket allotment.
Something has got to give!
I find it amusing that the Beacon wants Futhur back because their ushers and personnel in general are ball-busting SOBs!!!!!!
I do not smoke or drink a lot yet even I noticed a zealousness of their part in harassing Dead heads.
The Beacon entrance is too small and their are not enough toilets. Not by a long shot. It is very, very bad. No joke.
Sure it looks nice inside but that is not enough.
Radio City is much large in aisle space, entrances, toilets. I do not no if the ushers are better or worse though.
Of course MSG would certainly give everyone a much better shot at getting in which is the single most important point. I do not, however, have any idea of what the numbers $ look like to Furthur's management though.
