As much as I like the other projects, Furthur has been much more fun and much more like "the old days" than any other group for me. Not to mention discovering a whole new internet world along the way. I'm incredibly bummed about this, though I'm very, very glad to have both Red Rocks and Mexico coming up. Still, I feel sick....
Sunshine, I can literally feel your pain as I read your post.....the thing is, 2014 is gonna be filled with many treats and surprises. Think about what these cats have done since day 1.....evolve, evolve, evolve. They had this concept of Furthur, put it together and created an incredible run that we all got to share in. Now....they want to do the same thing in different formats. When you step back and think about it, how lucky are we?! In 2014 we'll have the privilege of attending many different forms of our world...
Bobby will be doing his symphony orchestra
Weir Here will be touring
According to actual band members, RatDog will be back on the road
TRI Allstars possible tour
Phil and the family band doing many shows at Terrapin
Phil and Friends on the road with such amazing musicians
Bobby and Phil continuing their relationship with the Cap and playing there in different formats
Rumor has it that Lucas Nelson is collaborating with Bob on some interesting stuff
Possible WRG Trio again
The festivals next summer should be super interesting with all the different formats
All these beautiful collaborations and we haven't even seen what JK and Russo will be up to?!
This is just for 2014, never mind 2015 which we all know will bring us something very special to say the least!!
I had the pleasure of seeing Furthur 37 times and of course I was a bit taken back by the news but the more I think about it, the more excited I am for the future. I expect the evolition to continue in 2014 and can't wait to see what surprises Bobby and Phil have in store for us over the next year....The gift that keeps on giving.....Thank you so much Furthur!
