who says they can't announce spring tour later then last year?

there have been tours announced with 2 months or less notice, that's not out of the ordinary. The other day TRI tweeted something about how Furthur is coming back east in the spring and it's been rumored for a while now.

patience...


yeah I did think about that. but I was too tired to edit my posts and went to bed. lol

I have never been to the Capital but why is it so special (despite its historical significance)? How is it better than the Tower, which I think is an excellent venue (very nice inside, cheap hotels nearby)?

If they do go with The Capitol Theatre in late Mar with an extended run, I see two sides of the coin, on the one hand the venue is very cool with lots of history but on the other hand its 800 less tickets per night than The Beacon which means tickets will be even harder.

Maybe they'll throw a couple of Roseland dates as well.

B-Rad, the Cap is hands down my favorite indoor venue. Everything is so accessible - bars everywhere, cool outside patio area off the floor for smoking, private bathrooms, a separate attached bar with large tv's broadcasting the show in case you need a breather....I could go on and on, the place is set up perfectly and the vibe is super. Can't say enough about the place!

also, maybe the band wants to play there. it's been renovated/restored. it's kind of like if you had the option to play an old semi run down theater in a seedy section of philly or a nice newly restored venue in westchester county NY. as a member of the band, you may choose the nicer area.

that capacity sounds very small though. 800 less than beacon. would be a madhouse. accessibility would no longer exist if it's truly that small. the scene outside would be even bigger than inside!!

as far as what they do, doesn't matter to me. i might fly out for a couple shows, might not. we'll see what happens.

the Cap also has these cool projections on the side walls and ceiling making the balcony the best seat in the house!

even the floor is nice and carpeted and it's on a slope making it easier to see from just about anywhere then most GA floors

The Black Crows with Jackie Greene are playing there in late March/early April...

with slots open on both sides of their 2 night run...

I wonder if they'll be sandwiched in a Furthur run...
could be very interesting..

I would add, a venue that both Bob and Phil played in their hey day. If it were me, I'd choose that.
