Re: CONFIRMED Summer Shows WILL be Played

#249632 1 year, 3 months ago
Whenevr New Yorkers talk about their city they always seem to be trying to convince themselves its the best place to be. Dont worry we all believe you we just dont want to cramp your style. NYC is a great place to visit but no way in hell could you ever pay me to trade the access to interstates i have while being in the mountains and living next to a lake with horses, dogs, and farms next me all the while having access to fantastic fresh food and local breweries from farm to table to mouth. People in NYC pay top dollar at restaurants and on their vacations upstate for what i enjoy everyday. Plus their ganj is way way way way overpriced.

you might recall.....I think it was 2010 when Furthur played Best Buy in July. One of these shows culminated in Bobby having a momentary loss of mind during El Paso. Ring a bell?

I don't think anyone would complain about a show in a climate controlled environment when the heat index could be 100+, especially the band.


The Best Buy shows were in March! I don't think they have ever played indoors in the summer, heat or not. Summer in NYC is great why is everyone afraid of a little hot weather.

Bethel holds 15,000 max but runs shows with much, much less than that. Past Furthur shows have been about half of what they would need to fill Barclay's. An indoor areana is different you can't really make it work financially without filling it up. And there is no way they are filling up Barclay's unless it is their only show of the Summer or some sort of fairwell tour.

It isn't going to be Barclay's!

Oh yeah, they did play two nights at the Nokia in 2010 (now Best Buy). How big is the Nokia though and this ain't 2010!

Its happened twice...but I guess if it is going to be an anomaly indoor summer show it would probably happen in NYC. I just hope they play Bethel or somewhere else outdoors in the area in the summer too.

I'm from New York, I don't eat the over priced food, I get my ganja for damn cheap and alot of it too for the price, great microbrews and wide selection from local breweries all around, my vacations are furthur shows, I think it's the best place to live if you're a deadhead that can't live on the west coast. I go back and forth to Pennsylvania to retreat to the mountains every other two months. I live in New York when the good shows are going down, and when I have school. Switching back and forth keeps it fresh and from getting stale. It gets pretty boring after a while being stuck in the middle of no where for a period of time, especially in winter. It also gets boring being stuck in the city. That's why I take the best of both worlds.
