Wolf Trap is a beautiful place. Problem is it's in a national park, so the law might not be cool with us, it being federal property and all. I always wondered why the Dead never played there, and guess that's the reason.

Well, now that you mention it...a 9000 seat temporary amphitheater will be installed at Pier 29 in San Francisco for the America's cup. Awesome siting on the Bay. The first announced act is Sting June 2nd. I am already reading comments calling for 'local' talent to be showcased there. I couldn't help thinking what a sweet spot for a Furthur show or two or three...

I agree with Berkeley Greek and Ventura Fairgrounds too.



I say yes to the temporary amphitheater on the bay. 9,000 capacity would accomodate.

The Greek would have to be my number one choice. Not to boast, but if you ever saw a Dead show there you'd know what I
was talking about. Imagine being on the top of the lawn, at sunset, with a view of the bay and GG bridge, and the scent of eucalyptus in the air. Just as you start peaking they open 2nd set with Morning Dew. Good times, to put it mildly.

One more vote for Deer Creek. Would also like to see them come back to the Murat in Indy, the Fox in St. Louis. But I am mostly hoping for any midwest shows.

Saw them in St. Augustine, FL in summer of 2011 and that was a nice venue except for it being about 115 degrees.


yes Indy and St. Louis!

I notice a lot of people pick venues closer to home. That's cool, but one of the best things I got out of all this was seeing new places and absorbing a bit of local flavor.

Ski doo mentioned Glastonbury. Now that would be something. Probably THE music festival of music festivals. So renowned they sell their 70,000 or so tickets before they even announce the line up. Only problem it's in remote southwest England.

How about a show in New Orleans? Don't think anyones mentioned that. Not sure if there's a venue large enough (aside from the Super dome). What a fun town it is, just right for this crowd, and they can certainly take care of a bunch of out of towners. And a little love for our southern brethren.

It was mentioned Furthur might not be able to sell enough tickets to play the Gorge. That's hard to say. If enough folks were really determined to go see a show there, then maybe. Problem with this place it's in quite the remote spot. Camping would have to be offered, but I'm not sure it would be such a good place to camp. An awesome place never the less, and would be worth the trek. Covers our northwest folks.

I'd take a show in Telluride over Red Rocks any day having been to RR and only visited Telluride. But Telluride is truly a small slice of heaven. Also, Park City, UT or the Downs of Santa Fe. Mountain region friends covered.

As far as the oft neglected midwest, I'd take the Fox in St. Louis and Detroit. Blossom outside of Cleveland. A show in Grant Park in Chicago would be killer, but apparently the Charter One pavillion was a hit with the heads. Starlight in Kansas City would be the bomb.

As far as the northeast I say Bethel, MSG, Augusta or Portland ME, some Vermont love and wherever else y'all like. City Island in Harrisbug, as mentioned. Hampton while not necessarily northeast has a lot of good vibes. I like to see shows with a large (r) crowds because the party has greater potential with more attendees (under 15,000) However the band has to be able to sell enough tickets to justify wherever they go, so some of my choices are based on wishful thinking, and some on practicality.

Then again, I'd like to be able to see Phil and Bob spend more time at home, if they wish, at Tri/TxR/SW, despite the fact the demand/price so high and capacity so low. At the same time I would hope they'd continue spreading the love to the country at large for as long as possible. And maybe a trip over the pond even.

Have the boys played in new orleans since they got busted there? I'd love a reason to get down to the big easy, but last I heard they wouldn't even play in houston beacuse it was too close to new orleans

for me, traveling is just as much of a thrill as walking into the venues each night and getting down.

where we're going i can't tell you
somewhere on the other side
driving blind across the border
born to ride, born to ride
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?
