I, too love the multi-night runs...it really gives a great chance for the band/fans to feel each another out and find the perfect groove, especially in some of the more laid back locales.

That being said, I am just really happy that there are some shows coming up, even if it means a little more traveling.

Hurry up summer!!!

I very much like three day runs in the same venue. It feels like a complete experience with a beginning, a middle and an end. I particularly enjoyed the three nights at RCMH March 25-26-27. Of course I am an now a much older head, so it is simply easier for me to remain in place for a three day run.

I do not like anything longer than three days becasue it is dificult for me to keep grooving for that length of time.

I view summer tour, with its one-off show to be geared more for the younger heads who are able to keep up with that fast pace and the thrill it provides. I tend to lay back in the summer and look for VIP tickets that offer comfy alternatives.

This year I have a vibes VIP tkt for Friday night. I might also grab a lot ticket for PNC where the lawn has a good sight line to the stage (unlike places like Saratoga or Mann where you can's see much of the stage from the lawn).

I remember the fun of zooming from one show to the next, burning up the road and hardly sleeping in the truck. It is a magical time that everyone should experience.

So I say make the most of the tours during the other times of the year where multiple day runs abound and leave the one nighters, miles apart to the youth who are up for it.

Some areas support multi night runs, others don't. See the spring tour. Tons of multi night runs. I just thank god they come and visit the south. We need more shows down here around Florida.

Amen, brother. As you can see the St. Augustine tix (and Jones Beach) are the hottest on Summer Tour. Living in Miami, the ass end of the U.S. (with the exception of Key West), I love it when they come anywhere near here. There are lots of heads here. As Hunter S. Thompson said after Bush won the election against Gore, that if every Dead Head in the State of Florida would have voted, Gore would have won.

It's all about logistics. It's a short tour. I love multi night runs's too, but it's better to spread it out on such a short run.

That's acceptable too. Spreading it out would also be great.

You make a good point, but unfortunately the majority of Furthur fans aren't trying to get to EVERY SHOW ON THE SUMMER TOUR.

When you think about it, the whole point of going on tour is to try and get the music out to as many different people as possible.

So yea, its great that you want to hit the whole tour, but know one said it was gonna be easy.

I selfishly want to tell you to be grateful that you can hit even a good portion of the summer tour, i'll be lucky if I get out to one.

Maybe the band doesn't like seeing the same people every night? j/k I really don't know.
