Re: Summer Tour?

#247606 1 year, 5 months ago
Any information gleaned from privileged sources should certainly be treated with care and not generally released with that source's name attached, unless you'd like them to get flack over it. 'Nuff said....Yeah, those Bethel dates are open, so are a bunch at The Mann. What about MCU? Were those good ticket sales? I can't imagine a short run of shows would miss the NY Philly or Chicago markets...but why does Boston get short-changed? Is it just lack of a decent venue (McCoy Stadium)?
Anyways, most Summer tours are announced. I'm surprised that Furthur lags so hard. People are making Summer plans, flights back to the family and getting work schedules arranged and our guys at Furthur give us no info. It's not like they're selling everything out anymore. Seems like bad business to me...but sure, I don't know the real reason. Peace, everyone!

Prolly know in 30 mins or maybe next Friday. I don't think they will wait much later than that and all of the spring tickets are sold.

i purchased my tickets for summer last year on 3/12. maybe it isn't happening this year, plain and simple.

It simply wouldn't make any economic sense to drive all the equipment out to Ohio and only do one show at All Good. There will be a tour around that July time, you can count on it!

Now, whether there are any other Midwest dates is another story...

The spring announcement was a couple of weeks off from last year too...I think they maybe waited until after Vibes announced and after the AC tickets sold out.

Methinks, it's a bit early to be looking for summer dates but hopefully they'll be announced much before occuring unlike the spring run. Holding back to announce dates and start presale at the same time as announcement was a lame move.

@ Denver Man-
I like how you think! Because it's like how I think. Ha Ha! I just was checkin' out MCU Park for the Cyclone's schedule. Yup! And Bethel is open so...if they do it just like they did before...Friday and Sat in Brooklyn w/ Sunday at Bethel we got July 12, 13 at MCU. July 14 at Bethel. I'd count on them to slip in a couple more and then hit Philly on the next weekend, probly just before All Good. All Good's on the way to Chicago...Phil and Friends come back east the next weekend fro Vibes. If anyone was taking bets that's where I'd put my money. But again...I'm guessing. I was Dead wrong about Vibes (and am still bumming on no Furthur there)

Never mind. I just lot my bet I never even placed. the Mann Center is booked the next Thurs and Fri 18th and 19th. they're not headlining All Good on Sunday and they're not backtracking all the way to Philly from Ohio to then head to Chicago. A different Philly venue? No Philly at all? I'm out and over this game. I lost already. Have fun everybody!

I wouldn't rule out anything. I had my mind set that their would be no spring tour and now I'm going to nine shows! Lol. But I don't see how they can miss out on MCU and Bethel. Both shows were great with the lots and everything. Too much money to be made to skip out on that. I think we will get an announcement real soon atleast by late April. Idk about other venues elsewhere but I'm sure they will play the summer New York run like that again. They wouldn't leave us all hanging. Especially since only a handful of people will make it into the Capitol theater. And one AC show won't cut it. Regardless I wouldn't mind a Phil and friends tour but why would furthur play all good but Phil and friends plays the vibes? It's doesn't make sense. So we will have to wait and see.
