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!
It was the Nokia Theater and they played two nights there in July of 2010! it could very well happen. the heat definitely put a hurtin on the boys at times last summer
