Smaller Venues & getting the boys back to Indiana

#214115 1 year, 11 months ago
I was reading somewhere on facebook about how the boys are gonna be playing smaller venues next year! I feel like that's a good and bad thing. Good being a more intamite experience with the boys and being a lot closer than you normally would. I've only seen them at small venues (Murat and Chicago Auditorium) I feel like a smaller ampitheater summer tour wold be awesome! Here in Indiana we have Deer Creek. I know both Phil and Bobby have been back to play there since then, But me personally would love to see them play there again atleast once. But I was looking at some video of shoreline before the show and it looked super empty, Deer Creek holds 25,000 heads. But we do have a smaller ampitheatre downtown Indianapolis called 'The Lawn at White River State Park which holds about 6,000 heads its nicely tucked in between our minor league baseball stadium right down the street from many hotels and bars and such, But Deer Creek would definitley be a better place for camping/lot scene/space to run around. I don't know i'm just ramblin but what smaller venues would you want the boys to play at?! And Bob/Phil/Johnny/Jeff/Sunshine/Jeff/Joey please please please some back to Indianapolis/Indiana! We love you gys and know what happened back in 95 was fucked up but Indiana loves the dead more than pie man! PIE!!

I lived in Indiana and caught The Dead at Deer Creek (and the REAL Dead in 92), as well as multiple Chicago venues, Buckeye Lake, and Alpine. I vote for Alpine in 2013 and even Deer Creek.

COME TO NASHVILLE! Would love to see the boys play here.

I would love to have them back in st louis at the fox theatre again. It is a beautiful place. The Murat in Indy was nice also.
And leave it on!

Some of my favorite memories were three day runs at alpine valley in the eighties. I wish Furthur could fill that place cause i would love to revisit the party there.

i'd love to go there too but i just don't see it happening with furthur unless there is a multi-band bill, which i would be cool with. have furthur play, phil and friends, ratbob, let jackie greene do his thing, bring in hot tuna, fuck let's just DO ANOTHER FURTHUR FESTIVAL
