well like i said before since it will be 25 nights at tower theater, they realize that since the tour will be at one venue, it lets them get away with announcing the run a little later .
it's an obsession but it's pleasing

What's going on in the Midwest. We had Columbus, Chicago, Madison, St. Louis and Indy two years ago and then Chicago, Michigan last year and this year we await!!!!!!!!!!!!! the news

In the meantime we have Melvin and Mark Karan

"The "selling out Broomfield first" theory seems a little weak to me as it is almost two thousand miles from most east coast population "

Yes but CO has a new industry it's called pot tourism and it goes hand in hand with their eco tourism and ski tourism industries. So having Furthur mid winter is a great way to start the year!! I think there is real wieght to this theory. Yes it's far that's exactly why no announcement. Why fly from NY if they will be here in March or April at the Cap ??

The only reason I am surprised is because the East coast is densely populated and an easy sell. Last Spring's 3 city stop wasn't really a tour if you ask me. I know they have their own things going on and that's great but the East coast seems like easy money to me

Pretty much everywhere is easy money for them, so it's probably more a matter of where they want to go, and appeasing fans at the same time.

I say enjoy what we've got, which is four upcoming nights, and wait patiently for an announcement.

Besides, this is the year of streaming

If they are waiting until after CO to announce then they need to fire their promoters! There is nobody making plans to go out to CO any longer from the east coast. Also the longer they wait the less likely they are to sell out as people need time to make plans. I think their recent attempts to wait until less than 2 months out have failed them miserably...as people cannot just throw down a few hundred bucks and get time off. My point is that if they are waiting until after CO they are shooting themselves in the foot. I think the CO shows make my point too as there wasn't sufficient time for me to plan a trip out.

I think they are just going to do a very short run in late April or May and don't have the details worked out yet. But they should hurry if they want it to sell out.

I saw The Dead in 2009 in May I think, the shows and the weather in Philly were just exactly perfect. The Spectrum is gone but the Tower will do just fine.

speak for yourself... I know a few and would be myself if I could swing it

and any north east run will sell out in a week..... edit -- any of their usual small venue Spring north east shows will sell out in a week tops... Wallingford may take a couple if your lucky

also I'm not suggesting they ARE coming east... just saying if they did it's pretty much an instant sell out

That would be a fun little surprise. I'm personally hoping for more midwest/west coast. I don't usually head to the northeast.
